Mothering Sunday is a time of year where we can show love and gratitude to those who raised us. On this special day, we tend to give personalised gifts in the form of flowers, hampers or activities to enjoy together.
A sweet treat hamper
Hampers are always a great idea, especially if your mother is a foodie. For the most luxurious hamper, it’s hard to do better than Fortnum and Mason. Their selection of preserves, biscuits and loose-leaf tea will turn your average teatime into a lavish affair. If your mum has diabetes, why not get her a low sugar hamper? That way, she can still enjoy cookies and jam spreads without spiking her blood sugar.
The gift of scent
If you want something a little different to what LUSH has to offer, The White Company do a selection of hampers and gift sets at various price points. Filled with candles, reed diffusers and bath products, your mother's home will soon be smelling like a personal spa in no time. Muji also does an excellent diffuser that releases vaporised water and essential oils into the room.
Build your own hamper
If you don’t like the look of the hampers available online and in the shops, you could make your own personalised hamper. All you’ll need is a wicker basket, some straw or coloured tissue paper and the items you want to include. If your mum doesn’t have a sweet tooth, you could include cheese and crackers with grapes and relishes instead. If she's into beauty, then you could build a pamper set with beauty products, bath bombs, a scented candle and our Thera Pearl Eye Mask. She'll have everything she'll need to create her own at-home spa.
You could also include some glamourous designer sunglasses in her hamper. For an oversized look, try the Jimmy Choo Sammi/G/S Black 807/90 sunglasses. For a more vibrant addition to her look, the Taylor Morris Vredefort Tan and Dark Brown Tortoise C8 sunglasses will do the trick.
A family portrait
You’ll probably get bonus points if you draw or paint your family, but if you’re not a natural-born artist, you can ask the people at Posterhaste to make you a personalised family portrait. This unique gift can be ordered as a print or a poster, with the option of frames available too.
Maintain good eye health
If your mum is the type to prefer practical gifts like socks and cosy cardigans, why not buy her a few months’ supply of contact lenses and some eye care products? Sometimes the gift we’re least expected to get is the one most greatly received.
With face masks now being a ‘must have’ accessory wherever you go, you could even add one of these into the bundle of Mother’s Day presents. At Feel Good Contacts, we have a range of protective face masks in a variety of styles and prints. If your mum wears glasses, you could be extra thoughtful and throw in The AB Mask Anti-Fog Cloth. This handy accessory will ensure that her glasses stay fog-free when wearing her mask.
