Mother’s Day Gift Ideas That Will Make Mum Stop and Relax at Home

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas That Will Make Mum Stop and Relax

If my children ask me what I want for Mother’s Day, I will tell them I’d like a cuddle in bed, a nap in the afternoon and a meal together where we can enjoy each other’s company.

The thing is my girls love to give me a present or two and often there is some help from dad to purchase said gift. So I have been thinking of things that I need that would work perfectly as a Mother’s Day gift and maybe they may make the perfect gift for your mum too? I’ve been given two of these gifts before and they have come in handy throughout the year. So without further ado, here are 7 Mother’s Day gift ideas that will make mum stop and relax.

Table Cloth

This may seem like a strange gift request, but it has been YEARS since I have put a fabric tablecloth on my dining table. It may be years before I venture to using fabric tablecloths everyday because the PVC tablecloths are so easy to clean with kids. But when I have people over, I like to have a nice tablecloth on the table and the ones that I have owned since I was married have started to get holes or look a little worse for wear. A fresh tablecloth makes me feel happy and it certainly helps me to relax when entertaining at home. I love the design of this Venice Tablecloth and I know it would work well in our home. The pattern can also camouflage food stains… probably not spag bol, but still, it’s definitely a lovely tablecloth to own and put on the table when entertaining.

Bath Caddy

This is another item on the want list that I haven’t ventured to purchase because the kids take domain over the bath. But I have started to have baths after the kids are in bed, and finding a none-wet spot to lay my book, can be impossible. I reckon this caddy would work for me, and would only be used by me when in the bath.

Royal Essence Bath Bomb

I shared about these bath bombs this time last year. I love them and definitely love the surprise inside. There is a Mother’s Day range available, but for myself, a classic oatmeal, milk and honey bath bomb will do me just fine. Each bath bomb comes with a surprise ring inside. It’s two gifts for the price of one.

Breakfast Tray

Jacob bought me a breakfast tray last year for Mother’s Day and it has been put to great use throughout the year. It’s been great for breakfast in bed (when I’ve been sick), or reading my Bible or writing lists before heading to bed.

Miss Pots Pouches

Plants are a great gift for mum and they tend to be the gift that keeps on giving. The best indoor plants I haven’t managed to kill have been the Jade Plant, Peace Lily and Zanzibar Gem. If your mum doesn’t have a green thumb, these plants are going to be the ones to go for. Gift your plant in a Miss Pots Pouch and your mum will love it.

Dotty Pillow Cases

I’m a fan for mixing linen to create different looks in the bedroom. One of my top tips when trying to change up the bedroom linen is to use patterned pillow cases. These dotty pillow cases certainly caught my eye because I have a thing for spots. I would love to have these on my bed and to sleep on at night.

Car Diffuser

This has been on my wish list for a while: a car diffuser. Our car can carry a number of interesting smells from takeaway to well…something that has been let away… if you know what I mean. This car diffuser will make the car smell nice, and hopefully keep all things calm in the car.

I’d be stoked to get any of these for Mother’s Day. I’m sure your mum would love them too.

What is something you’ve had your eye on that would be lovely to receive on Mother’s Day?
