Mother’s Day is the perfect time to treat your Mum or Mum-figure after all, Mum’s are known to be the backbone of the family. I like to think outside the box when choosing gifts for my mum and my mother-in-law but can never think of something for Luke to get me off Ellie. I’ve been fortunate to work with some amazing businesses and try out some great products to put together this year’s gift guide to find the perfect gift for the Mum or to treat yourself – so read on for my Mother’s Day gift ideas and where to find them.
For the mum who’s got everything!
Celebrate Mum this year with a beautifully hand-painted illustration they will cherish forever.
Every watercolour is bespoke and includes up to four figures, your own outfit choices and any name/text you want. You are also able to choose the background option – plain, spring wreath or a coloured washed circle.
I was kept in contact throughout the process and able to agree on the sketch before the final illustration was created. I loved how much input I had and was really pleased with the final piece. Nin was able to capture exactly what I wanted and it’s beautiful. I can’t wait to have it framed.
Size – A5 (bigger illustrations and further custom options are available after discussing with the artist via their social media/email).
Prices start at £20 and are available here.

Gold Silk Pillowcase – Calidad Home
Treat Mum to a touch of luxury
These 100% Mulberry Silk Pillowcases are the definition of luxury. Not only do they feel amazing, they are known to have other benefits too! Silk has less friction than cotton which reduces friction on your hair leaving it looking smoother and glossier. Silk pillowcases are great for your skin too – helping to keep moisture in the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Since using I have found my hair is smoother and less frizzy in the morning!
These silk pillowcases are also hypoallergenic and doesn’t affect the eczema, asthma sufferers in our house which is always a bonus for us. The silk pillowcase also comes in a huge range of colours to suit any décor!
Mum will thank you for the gift of younger looking skin!
Size – fits most standard pillows (50cm x 75cm)
Price – £59.95 available to buy here
Feels Like Down Pillows – KallySleep
For the Mum who needs a good night’s sleep
The Kally Feels Like Down twin pack is as light and fluffy as the real thing without the feathers. These pillows are filled with microfibre in a 100% cotton cover.
I’ve been using this pillow for a few weeks now and I love how soft and gentle they feel and find they keep their shape. My sleep has been better and I’m sleeping for longer too. They are suitable for side, front and back sleepers (I’m a side and back sleeper) and have a firmness of 4/10. What’s great for us as that they use anti-allergy synthetic fibres to protect against bacteria which as a family of allergy sufferers this is great news!
