Mother’s Day is fast approaching which means we are all looking for the perfect gift to show our amazing mums what they mean to us. To help you out we have put together some little gift ideas that won’t break the bank, but will guarantee to make mum feel extra special.
1. A big bunch of flowers with a beautiful vase
Although flowers can seem a little typical, we think a big bunch of your mum’s favourite flowers accompanied by a brand new vase or jug is the perfect, thoughtful gift. We love this Spode Blue Italian Hexagonal Vase, pictured below, for a mum that loves the timeless blue and white theme. Our Sophie Conran for Portmeirion Glass Jug also looks amazing filled with flowers and is great because your mum can use it after for serving drinks. The flowers pictured below are from Tesco on Pinterest.
2. Teacup & saucer plus mums favourite tea
Every tea lover appreciates a lovely teacup & saucer or mug. Coming from Stoke-on-Trent, affectionately known as The Potteries, we would always say that tea tastes better drank from a fine, thin teacup. Whatever your mum’s preference, a teacup or mug teamed with some premium fruit tea or even a box of her favourite teabags is bound to make her smile. This stylish Sara Miller London Portmeirion flamingo mug, pictured, (we can’t get enough of this super cute flamingo!) or our amazing fine bone china Ted Baker Portmeirion teacup & saucer are perfect gifts as they are both presented in a beautiful gift box. The stylish tea brand, Lov Tea, is super cool too which you can buy online at selfridges.
3. A beautiful cake stand and a little bit of your time
Whether your mum is a big fan of baking or not, it’s always fun (or disastrous in some cases!) to bake a cake together. So, if you think your mum would appreciate some quality time with your dear self, we propose you book a couple of hours of mum’s time on Mother’s Day, choose her favourite cake and have a go at baking it together. Whatever the outcome, have a cake stand ready to display your creation. This Royal Worcester Serendipity 2-tier cake stand is the perfect elegant canvas for cupcakes or scones and is a steal at £15 for a limited time only. If you need some recipe ideas check out the Telegraph’s top 10 cake recipes for Mother’s Day. We’d definitely give the multi-tier red velvet cake a go!
