Unique Mother’s Day Gifts Your Mum Will Actually Appreciate
Mothers are the unsung heroes of our lives - the driving force behind the family, always making sure everyone’s taken care of, well-fed and happy, often spending ages doing things behind the scenes that mainly go unnoticed. The anchor in many of our lives, Mother’s Day is the one day of the year where we can express our unabashed gratitude for the women our lives would never be the same without. After years of gift-giving, we know just how hard it can be to find that right gift that’ll serve as a small token of appreciation for all the accumulated “thank yous” over the days.
We’ve taken seemingly mundane everyday items that can now be transformed into heartwarming emblems guaranteed to lift your mum’s spirit. Knowing just how much of a challenge a well-thought-out gift can prove to be, we’ve compiled a list of some unique, gorgeous heartfelt gift ideas that’ll make your mum smile and show her just how much you love her.
1. A cuppa with a Twist
For a busy woman with tons to tick off her to-do list, winding down with a warm cup of tea can be a simple pleasure in an otherwise hectic day, and now, you can be a part of this calming everyday routine too! Choose from a wide range of artsy, beautiful prints to decorate a sturdy ceramic mug with, and remind your mum of your appreciation for her with every sip she takes of her favourite drink. Creating a gift that’s both practical and sentimental? A winning combination that’s perfect for any mum.
2. Sit back and relax, mum
What better gift to remind your mum to prop her feet up and relax every once in a while than these luxurious fibre-filled pillows. They instantly dress up any space, while providing some muchneeded comfort. Take your pick from options like tranquil scenery, right up to modern abstract art prints to decorate the front of a plush pillow that’s decked out with a stone coloured faux suede back. The gift that keeps on giving - nothing says “relaxing” better than a soft pillow after a long day.
3. The missing piece I’ve been looking for
