In our Mother’s Day gift guide, we share the best Mother’s Day gift ideas for 2021, to really show the special lady in your life how much you care.
The next big date in our diary is Mother’s Day, which falls this year on Sunday 14th March. In a year that has been so tumultuous for so many, it goes without saying that we are all in need of a pamper and a self-care moment – especially our mothers. What better way to show love, support and appreciation for the very special ladies in our lives than by spoiling them with something from this year’s Cohorted Mother’s Day gift guide. Whether she is your mum, mam, nan or gran – or just someone who has a place in your heart – let them know just how much they mean to you this March.
We have rounded up some truly gorgeous gifts fit for a queen, catering to all budgets, love languages and schedules. At a time when hotels and restaurants across the country would be booked up to their elbows in brunch and afternoon tea reservations, we have also considered how to give your chosen lady an equally magical and fun experience from the comfort of their own home. You’re guaranteed to be inspired by something you see listed below. Whether it’s quality time or some luxury goods, treat the special lady in your life this year with one of our handpicked selections:
Jo Malone is a firm cult favourite among mums across the world, producing exquisite and iconic fragrances in her range of candles and products. But has she heard of Jo Loves – the lesser-known subsidiary created by the entrepreneur herself? Jo Loves offers fresh, modern fragrances. Moving into the Spring season, the White Rose & Lemon candle is elegant, akin to having a real-life, freshly picked bouquet at home. The candles, fragrances and diffusers are all inspired by memories and moments from her personal life. Create a special memory for your mum by indulging her in one of the unique and exclusive scents. You can even add a personalised label to remind her of the occasion all year round. (£55)
On the topic of candles, why not get a bit crafty and have a go at making your own. After all it really is the thought that counts. Find yourself some clean and empty mason jars or scallop sea shells, melt down a few tea lights in a non-stick pan, add some drops of her favourite essential oil, pour and leave to set – with a wick or tea light in the middle. Then simply wrap up in tissue paper, add some matches, and ta-da: a beautiful homemade gift under £10.
With working from an office becoming a distant memory for some, the perfect addition to a home office is an aromatherapy oil diffuser. Oliver Bonas offers a sleek ceramic diffuser in a choice of three colours. With a range of timer settings this stylish vase-reminiscent piece creates a calm ambience, to put your mum at ease this Mother’s Day. Whether she’s busy being the boss of a company or just of the house.
And of course, there is a gift box option available upon purchase. Add the Green Tea & Lotus flower diffuser oil to your basket too!
(£45 for diffuser, £6.50-12.50 for oil)
Who doesn’t love a bright and beautiful bunch of flowers delivered to their doorstep? You can never go wrong with some seasonal blooms on Mother’s Day, and luckily there are many companies that offer prompt services to make her day fabulous. Flowerbx offers luxury, timeless bouquets cut to order, with a stunning range of stems and complimentary gift wrapping. Check out Bloom & Wild for posted perennials that she can enjoy arranging. And, the best bit is that these websites usually have discount codes aplenty, but always have bunches to suit any budget. (Starting at £23).
There are few things more tranquil than a lovely long soak in the bath, even more so when using top-of-the-range toiletries. The Jasmine & Sun Rose Bathing Experience gift set from Molton Brown will bring pure bliss and relaxation to her evening. The floral and fruity notes infusing with steam will bring the spa experience to her very own bathroom. First a bubble bath with the Bath & Shower Gel, followed by the gorgeous body oil. The wrapping from MB is always immaculate too! (£62)
This make-your-own cocktail gift set courtesy of Borough Box goes hand in hand with a Zoom call or FaceTime on Mother’s Day. A perfect way to unwind and have fun, pouring yourself a curated and sophisticated drink. There are so many to choose from, whether she prefers a gin martini or long island iced tea. Add on one of the signature Borough Box cocktail shakers for an extra garnish to your gift. (Starting at £26.99)
Fill this quirky, colourful stoneware mug with her favourite teabags (or coffee pods) so she can unwind on Sunday afternoon with a brew or a latte while you have a Mother’s Day catch-up. Exclusively designed for Anthropologie, she will think of you and your kindness every time she goes to fill it up. You can’t go wrong! (£14)
Give her the gift of peaceful beauty sleep with a 100% silk pillowcase, offering numerous benefits including reducing hair frizz and offering a soft and calming solution for sensitive skin. What an inviting treat, after a day of pampering and Zoom calls, to snooze in the most truly indulgent way. (From £60)
And of course, if we are fortunate enough to be able to see our wonderful women, a big hug will be one of the best gifts we can give them this year.
