8 Meaningful Mothers Day Gifts That Aren’t Flowers

What meaningful Mothers Day gifts are you getting for your mum this holiday? Flowers are a classic choice but definitely consider switching it up this year by getting something that’s permanent, creative and unique. There are so many sites and businesses online that offer customisable and original presents that are guaranteed to leave a smile on her face. Rather than heading down to the supermarket or high street for flowers, chocolate and other generic gifts, opt for a lasting and impactful present. Here’s a list of eight meaningful Mothers Day gifts to give you some inspiration for the coming day.

1. A personalised family portrait

If you don’t already have a family portrait then a personalised drawn portrait may be just what you need. If you want it to be a surprise, then getting a professional picture done is out of the question. This makes a drawn and doodled portrait the perfect option – it’s also very cute.

2. A much-needed pamper box

You have to hand it your mum, she does a lot, and it’s a wonder that shes somehow put up with you for all these years (even more so if you have siblings). Show your appreciation to her this Mothers Day by giving her a pamper box for a mini at-home spa day. She deserves the rest and relaxation.

3. A family cookbook

If your mum loves to cook, then this family cookbook is the perfect gift. It comes with pages already planned with layouts. There’s room for over 80 recipes as well as an introduction for tips, tables and more to help her get started.

4. A memorable day out

If physical gifts aren’t your thing then it’s perfectly fine to treat your mum on a day out instead. This could be a spa day, a shopping trip or even afternoon tea in London. There are so many places that offer afternoon tea – both traditional and with a twist. Sketch in Mayfair is a great choice you’re looking for something that’ll make a memorable experience.

5. A book with personalised pages

I’ve used LoveBook before and it’s a perfect gift if you want to give your loved ones something sentimental. You can design everything from the covers and art to the messages and font. It also comes with further options: black and white or colour pages, as well as paperback or hardback. The book comes in high-quality paper and is well worth the money.

6. A necklace with a handwritten message

Personalised necklaces with names or messages are definitely a step further than general Mothers Day necklaces. If you’re looking to take it to the next level then handwritten engravings are the way to go. As well as being a sweet message, the fact that it’s handwritten makes it so much more personal and meaningful.

8. A mug for mum

Never underestimate the power of a good mug in the morning. Whether it’s coffee, tea or a steaming cup of hot chocolate, a warm mug is the source of comfort for those chilly mornings. If your mum is a beverage drinker in the mornings, then a personalised mug is a great reminder for the start of the day, that she’s loved and appreciated.
