It’s that time of year again, it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday 11th March 2018. I love buying presents for my Mum, who doesn’t?After having a child myself I’ve realised just how important Mother’s Day is, to say thank you to your Mum for all the hard work, exhaustion and love that they have put into raising you. It really is a special day and any Mum deserves to be treated.
So to make the hunt for a Mother’s Day present a little easier, I’ve put together this brilliant Gift Guide to help you find the perfect present for your Mum. Or to give your partner inspiration for a gift from your children. There are some gorgeous gifts all designed for Mums who are into different things, and they are all available from independent brands and small businesses.

For the coffee loving on-the-go Mum…
If your Mum is like me then I love a coffee on-the-go. When my toddler was younger and I was doing endless laps of the park trying to get her to sleep in the buggy I would have really appreciated this gift.
ECoffee Cup create a beautiful range of reusable coffee cups. They are all made with a natural and sustainable bamboo fibre, which is light to drink and gives no plastic after-taste, plus they are dishwasher safe too. All cups come with a grip handle for easy grip and to stop your fingers from getting too hot.
For the Mum who loves to pamper herself…
The team at Soap Folk have created some really gorgeous smelling treats, and this Soap Box is a simply stunning present. It comes with four delicious smelling soaps in lavender & oatmilk, rose geranium, milk & honey, and peppermint which are all handmade.
All the packaging is stunning. The soaps arrive tied up by a cotton ribbon and pretty label tag, making any Mum feel like they are receiving a real treat when they open it.
The soap box costs £20.00 which is great value for a Mother’s Day present.
For a Mum who has just had a baby…
The early days of having a newborn are super hard, and every single parent out there wants to celebrate their achievements. Sometimes just having a shower or a hot cup of tea is an achievement, especially when you’ve had no sleep or a feeding baby all day. That’s why these Mummy Milestones Card from Isabella & Us are perfect.
I really love the cards that read:
Today I was left in charge and we survived
Today I washed my hair
Today I am off duty
They would make any Mum smile, and the cards are available for £10.00 from the Isabella & Us store on Etsy..

It’s available for £10.00 from Whoopsie Daisie.
For the Mum who loves chocolate…
I’m pretty sure that any Mum loves chocolate, and these chocolates from Lily O’Briens are divine. The Exquisite Edition is packed full of delicious flavours including salted caramel, raspberry and sicilian lemon, and creme brulee. And, that’s only just a starting point, there are so many more.
This Lily O’Briens chocolate box costs just £15.50, and I could honestly eat these every single day of my life. So if the Mum you are buying for loves chocolate then this gift is definitely for her.

If you are buying for a Mum-to-be then this Maternity Kit from the Natural Birthing Company is ideal. The kit is designed by midwives, so it really has been put together with the best care for the Mum in mind. It comes packed full of products designed to help any Mum-to-be including cooling body spritz, perineal massage oil, soothing postnatal compress solution, breastfeeding oils, and two organic unbleached flannels.
I love this kit, and it will definitely come in handy closer to the due date of my baby, and after the little one is born.
So if you’re purchasing for a Mum-to-be, then consider the Mama’s Moment Maternity Kit from the Natural Birthing Company. It’s available for £49.99.
That’s it! I hope you love all the gifts featured here (just as much as I do), and manage to find something to purchase for the Mum in your life.
