This year Mother’s Day in the UK is on Sunday 19th March and it’s the perfect time to treat the Mum or Mum-figure in your life. I’m a Mum myself and Mother’s Day fills me with so much love and gratitude for my little family but it also comes with the grief that comes with parenting from afar too. I wanted to create a gift guide that celebrated being a Mum to a living child but also being a Mum to a child that had died too. A gift guide that can make all Mum’s feel special regardless of the situation they find themselves in.
DISCLOSURE – SOME ITEMS SHOWN BELOW HAVE BEEN GIFTED TO REVIEW AND INCLUDE IN THIS YEAR’S GIFT GUIDE HOWEVER AS ALWAYS ALL THOUGHTS, OPINIONS AND PHOTOGRAPHS ARE MY OWN.
Mother’s Day Gift Set
The lovely duo from Isla & Boe have created a special gift box of sentiment and happiness – they can be personalised too. Personally, if a gift has been personalised I know some thought has gone into purchasing it.
Each white gift box comes with:
- a choice of Mother’s Day card (personalised),
- a choice of a personalised notebook or a personalised A5 memory book
- a choice of a personalised keepsake or keyring
Not only is this a beautiful personalised gift but it can also be personalised for a bereaved mum too.
Amore Luxury Truffles
I’ve never met a Mum who doesn’t like chocolates making this beautiful heart shaped selection box a great gift for Mother’s Day. The Luxury Selection Box is filled with 24 luxurious chocolate truffles in four different flavours: salted caramel, milk champagne chocolate, pink gin white chocolate and raspberry champagne white chocolate. The chocolates are also free from palm oil and made from the world’s finest single origin cacao.
These are the perfect gift for the Vegetarian Mum’s and for Mum’s who are eco-friendly they’d be pleased to know they come in plastic-free packaging designed locally in London.
Love Cocoa’s mission is to help the planet and do their bit so for every bar, tube and nibble sold they will plant a tree!
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.
3D Handprint/Footprint Plaque
This is such a wonderful gift for Mum this Mother’s Day. Take a 2D Print of your baby’s hands or feet and have them made into 3D keepsakes.
These casts are made from a biodegradable cornstarch based bioplastic and are customised using a scanned photo of their prints.
The plaque itself is 14cm wide and unframed. Casts are currently available in four colour options: White, Pale Blue, Pale Pink or Yellow.
