Me Time

Best gifts to buy for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a great time of the year to show that extra bit of appreciation for your mum or mother-figure. I’ve put together a gift guide to share some ideas to suit all budgets and tastes.

Where I can I have ensured the gifts have a sustainability element as this is an important focus for me.

Where possible I have included links for those who want to shop online from my list.

Best gifts to buy this Mother’s Day
Hydra-Vital from Modern Herbals

Modern Herbals offer a vast selection of dietary, herbal and food supplements. They have created a hyaluronic acid serum called Hydra-Vital – a nourishing skin serum. It combines two powerful molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid with plant extracts, and Provitamin B5. The large molecules act on the surface of the skin, helping to smooth it. This can encourage brighter skin, enhanced moisture and hydration, resulting in regenerated, supple, and refreshed skin.

£22.99 for 50ml

OXO 3 in 1 Avocado Slicer

I love a gadget and this OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer is a great tool to have in your kitchen. The serrated blade easily cuts through avocado skin to split the fruit without being sharp to the touch. The patented stainless steel pitter removes the pit with one quick twist; you can then push it out of the tool through the small hole on the back. The fan blade glides through the avocado to yield even slices, with no knife required. Top-rack It’s also dishwasher safe on the top rack.


OXO bottle drying rack

Water bottles and travel mugs are such an important part of daily life now. This OXO Good Grips Water Bottle Drying Rack is a brilliant way to keep them clean and dry. The Rack’s innovative design holds four water bottles and four lids, and the unique straw holders keep up to four reusable straws elevated for sanitary and efficient drying. The Rack’s raised edges keep lids and caps from rolling off so you can find your bottles and accessories when they’re ready for use. The rack comes apart and neatly snaps into the base for easy, compact storage when not in use.


Select teaspoons and forks from Viners

Perfect for afternoon tea, the Select tea spoons and pastry forks are available in 2 stylish colours – grey and copper. The subtle tear drop handle design adds a touch of class. And with a 25-year guarantee, your beautiful cutlery is built to last for many years.

£13 for set of 4 teaspoons or 4 pastry forks

Cafe Concept range from Typhoon

I adore Typhoon for all those lovely extras that make a kitchen more homely. The Café Concept range is perfect for tea and coffee lovers. With mix and match neutral coloured pieces for brewing and serving, the range will suit all decor. The snack bowls are quaint and practical, while the snack saucers are a lovely touch when serving up a tasty treat.

£3 and upwards

Freshly Cosmetics

Freshly Cosmetics bring healthy, innovative, sustainable and fun cosmetics to the market. Their range is excellent, and vegan too, so there’s a choice for everyone. The Golden Radiance body oil is a perfect gift. With 12 plant-derived oils such as organic jojoba, it is nourishing yet lightweight for your skin.


Mother’s Day bouquet from Haute Flowers

Mother’s Day is the perfect occasion to give a stunning floral arrangement. I love the blooms from Haute Florist, who have a perfect collection to suit all tastes. To make sure they arrive beautifully fresh, if you order by 10pm you get free next day delivery. The Paris is a particularly stunning bunch – combining pink Oriental Lilies, deep purple Roses and Stallion Chrysanthemums. 


Freixenet Italian Rosé

This delicious tipple from Freixenet in a stunning bottle is amazing value. This photogenic rosato is made from Veneto’s classic grape varieties, and has a refreshing, delicate palate of red cherries and strawberries.


Flower & White plant-based meringue bar

You don’t need to be vegan to enjoy these delicious bars! Not only are the just 85 calories each, they are completely free of any nasty additives or artificial sweeteners AND best of all, because of the decent (rather than micro) portion size, you can really savour your cheeky choc bar. The vegan bars are palm oil and gluten free – the same as the rest of the delicious Flower & White collection.

From £14.49 for 10 bars

A photo day for the new Mum

If you are with someone or friends with someone who has just become a new Mum, then one of the best gifts you can give this Mother’s day is memories. And that can be done with a Baby Photography session. This way the new Mum gets some stunning pictures of her little one that she can cherish for years to come.
