Who would have believed that we are in March already? This year is already going by so quickly and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. When I was younger I always struggled to buy a gift for my Mum because she thought flowers were a waste of money and she didn’t like boxed chocolates. I would have loved to have been able to jump on the internet and google some gift ideas. Well, at least I can provide you with some hopefully nice gift ideas.
On a side note, Mother’s Day just happens to fall on the 31st March this year, which is also when the clocks go forward 1 hour, starting seven months of Daylight Savings Time. So Mums definitely need some extra love this year as we’ll already be losing an hour of sleep on Mother’s Day!

dr. ever_ryouth 24K Gold + Antioxidant Hydrating Eye Treatment Pads – £35.00
I think most mums never get enough sleep; especially those with babies and small children. One of the first places that lack of sleep shows on our face is under the eyes. The dark circles, the bags etc. I am sure you all know what I’m talking about. Why not treat your mum to a box of these dr. eve_ryouth 24K Gold + Antioxidant Hydrating Eye Treatment Pads?
You get 5 packs to a box and they are formulated for:
- Tired looking under eye
- Puffy looking under eyes
- Dehydrated under eyes
I love these eye pads as they are so refreshing and just make tired eyes feel and look so much better.
Hempz Blueberry Lavender and Chamomile Herbal Day & Night Softening Silk – £12.99
This Hempz Blueberry Lavender & Chamomile range just smells so good. I think it’s actually my favourite out of the Hempz products that I have tried. Not only that but they are very reasonably priced too. The Night Softening Silk is just £12.99 for 240ml and the 65ml body moisturiser is just £7.50. They also do a box of 2 packs of Bath Salts which are £12.99 as well. All of these would make a lovely pamper gift set.
New Look Perfume Blush & Dusk 100ml Eau de Parfums – £12.50
Okay, so I bought these perfumes myself from New Look as I thought they’d make great gifts and at a fab price. I’ve just gone to find the link to them and they are no longer listed on the New Look website. I’m kinda bummed about it because they are really gorgeous perfumes. I don’t know if they are being rebranded as I know they are very popular. I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that they are just temporarily gone. It seems a shame not to include them, and there are still lots of other cute gift ideas in the New Look Beauty section.
il Baco da Seta Premium Prosecco in Personalised Wood Gift Box – £23.00
What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than with a nice chilled glass of prosecco, or should I say bottle! This rather gorgeous bottle is from Farrar & Tanner, who I’ve recently discovered and they have some beautiful gifts on their website:-
“Based in the regency town of Cheltenham Spa, Farrar & Tanner design and source bespoke, enduring quality gifts. Our range of fine wines and spirits from around the world, are selected for their taste, reknown and heritage, and presented in luxury personalised wooden gift boxes.” Source
This il Baco da Seta Premium Prosecco is extra day, with notes of apples, pears and just a hint of white peach. It comes in this lovely wood presentation box, which you can have laser engraved for an extra £3.00 – I can confirm that the engraving is of a really high standard and looks just beautiful. Plus the box could be easily repurposed afterwards for storage of some kind. So it really does make a lovely gift and keepsake. Delivery is from £2.99 and Next Day Delivery is also available.
Personalised Always Be A Flamingo Mug – £9.99
Anyone that knows me well also knows that I am slightly obsessed about Flamingos so I just had to include this rather cute Personalised Always Be A Flamingo Mug from The Gift Experience! You can also personalise it with a message of your choice on the back too. The whole mug is decorated with teeny tiny hearts, with a pretty pink Flamingo on the front and the quote:
“Always be a Flamingo in a flock of Pigeons”
Such a great quote! I think this would go down a treat as a gift for most Mums. You can also have it gift wrapped – for anyone that hates wrapping, like me! It’s despatched within 24hrs and express delivery is also available. Worthy to note that although this is dishwasher safe, it’s recommended to hand wash to keep the vibrancy of the design.
Three Hearts Necklace On Triple Chain In Personalised Box – £19.95
Jewellery is always a good option when it comes to ideas for gifts. This Three Hearts Necklace On Triple Chain In Personalised Box is just so pretty and comes in a personalised box with a message of your choice. I kept my message quite simple but really loved how it turned out.
The necklace itself is part of The Gift Experience Gaventa of London range. They have some other really lovely pieces as well as this necklace that would also make beautiful gifts. The chain on the necklace is 16 inches with a 2-inch extender.
Chocolate Prosecco and Strawberries – £12.99
Now this prosecco won’t get you drunk or leave you with a hangover but you’ll love it if you have a sweet tooth. It’s a Chocolate Prosecco and Strawberries gift set from Prezzybox and is made entirely of chocolate!
These are made of 100% Belgian Milk & White Chocolate and they are also handmade. The half size bottle of prosecco is milk & white chocolate and is also dusted with edible glitter. The 6 strawberries are made of white chocolate. I will say that the white chocolate is not sickly at all, just beautifully smooth on the palette.
They are Gluten Free.
Please Note: Not suitable for vegetarians.
Allergy Advice: May contain nuts. Contains milk, soya and carmine colouring.
The Old Curiosity Secret Garden Gin – Apothecary Rose – £35.95
This beautiful Apothecary Rose Gin made by The Old Curiosity Garden available on Prezzybox really caught my attention. First and foremost I adore the beautiful packaging. Secondly, I really love that this Gin is that little bit different and that it is 100% natural. Everything is handpicked that goes into their gins. Watch their video for more about how these stunning gins are made.
This Apothecary Rose has a really delicious subtle flavour, it’s hard to describe it to be completely honest but if your Mum likes gin, she won’t be disappointed to be opening this beautiful bottle on Mother’s Day! These gins are also colour changing when you add tonic, it changes to a soft pink – you can see from the video below. I just love everything about these gins and the company; if I were to receive a bottle of this for Mother’s Day, I’d be very happy!
Handpicked Hampers – from £26.00 -£57.00
There are also these gorgeous Mother’s Day hampers available from Handpicked Hampers and they range in price from £26 to £57. Hampers are such a fun thing to receive – can you imagine opening one of these on Mother’s Day? I’d feel truly spoilt.
(Last Order Date for delivery before Mothers Day is Thursday 28th March before 12 pm for UK Mainland.)
Beauty Box Subscriptions – Various Prices
If you can’t decide on a gift, how about giving a 3-month subscription to a beauty box? There are so many available now, there is something for everyone’s budget. Like this Roccabox, this is the March box. Prices start from £30 for 3 months for the Roccabox.
If your Mum loves her Kbeauty then there is the Joah Box, featuring Korean skincare and beauty items. The 3-month subscription plan is $97, so around £73 give or take. So that’s about £24/25 a box. It is free worldwide shipping. I admit this is one of my favourite beauty boxes that I purchase myself and I have been subscribed to them more or less since they started.
My Mask Time
Sheet masks are super popular right now, so if your Mum is into facemasks then she might like a subscription to My Mask Time, which I feel is the best sheetmask subscription out there. You can actually gift a 1, 3, 6, 9 or 12-month subscription, and you can choose from two plans, Glow Starter & Glow Setter.
Below is the Glow Setter from January and this plan is really great for anyone that loves sheetmasks and each box contains 8-10 masks.
The Glow Starter is ideal for people new to sheetmasks & you get 4 masks in a box each month.
If you have a Mother that really likes their natural skincare and makeup, then I would recommend the LoveLula Beauty Box and at just £42.60 for 3 months it’s really a great price too! This is the LoveLula box for March.
Here is a list of other great subscription boxes – and not just beauty ones either! :-
- Box Me Up
- Eve’s Parcel
- Latest In Beauty
- Look Fantastic
- Look Incredible
- Little-known Box
- Natural Beauty Box
- Natural Wellness Box
- Pink Parcel
- Sherbet Box
- Secret Scent Box
- The Pip Box
I still have a couple more items to add to this gift guide, which I will do in the next day or two.
