How to spoil Mum this Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day in the UK is a little earlier this year on 11th March so it’s a good time to start planning ahead! If you are thinking about ordering anything personalised or custom made, most shops will be closing their order books towards the end of February in order to have time to make and post items out.
Here at Little Things by Lucy we know it’s not always about lavishing people with expensive gifts just for the sake of it but more about the sentiment and those little gestures to put a smile on Mum’s face!
The saying ‘the best things in life are free’ is so true, and for me, as a mum it’s all about those little moments such as breakfast in bed or a cuddle when I am not feeling well. There is nothing I love more than a hand drawn card or some home made (albeit usually a bit strange!) cakes. My Mum’s “thing” is homemade cheese straws so I try to make them for her every year… and when I can’t she gets shop bought (sorry mum!), but it’s our little family tradition.
However, if you are on the look out for a unique gift for Mother’s Day that is still packed with sentiment, we love all things personalised or handmade here and I have put together a little gift guide for some inspiration.
If you are looking for something bang on trend to brighten up Mums home or workspace these concrete letters from Bells and Whistles Make are perfect! I love them in copper but colours can be personalised, as can the wording.
Mothers Day flowers- with a difference! Forget a boring bunch of flowers and just look at the gorgeous real pressed flower combo’s from The Little Dahlia Co. They are handmade so you can request your mum’s favourite flowers- amazing!
For me, any gift that includes a photo is a winner. Growing up I have always given friends and family photo frames and albums for presents and they never fail to bring a smile to someone’s face. Personalised frames by Little Things by Lucy also include free photo printing!
If Mum is a bit of a chocolate fiend like me, anything from this shop would be a good shout! Gorgeous looking hot chocolate spoons, and some even have a touch of alcohol in them- yum yum! These would also look great as part of a little gift bag or hamper if that’s what you are planning.
I love everything from the Old English Co. so it was hard to pick one thing for my Mother’s Day guide, but how about a little bit of motivation for mum with this fab hand lettered print?
After something boozy with a bit of a twist? Hollies Lollies has a range of fabulous alcoholic lollies and sweets. What does your mum love- gin? prosecco? This shop has it all!
And what about all those new mums or mums to be? Belle + Bear have a range of super cool gift boxes for both mum and baby this Mother’s Day.
Remind your Mum how kick-ass she is every day with this motivational mirror! “I see PRIDE, I see POWER, I see a badass mother who don’t take no crap off of nobody!”
Who doesn’t love a bit of neon in their lives?? This awesome rainbow jumper would brighten up anyone’s day!
How about some gorgeous artwork for Mum to brighten up the home? Diane Hill has turned some of her beautiful hand painted designs into high quality art prints with a range of colour options- love, love, love!
Give Mummy something to make her smile! These make up bags can be made from childrens handwriting or drawings and come in various lovely glittery colour options. The make up bags are pretty large so can also be used as gift bags to fill with treats! Little Things by Lucy can also put drawings onto jumpers so Mum can proudly show off her little ones artwork by wearing it!
Now I just love this idea! I love how beautiful the bracelets look, but also as a sucker for sentiment, the fact it is made with actual handwriting makes it so personal! This would also make a lovely gift from the kids to Mummy using their handwriting.
And finally, if you are looking for a Mother’s Day card that ‘says it all’ look no further than the fabulous Hurrah for gin! This one rings so true for me- I don’t think you will ever really understand some of the things your Mum does/has done until you become one yourself. And this is when you start to feel bad for what you put them through- haha!
