With Mothers Day being just 3 short sleeps away, I thought I could write a last minute post on gifts for those who haven’t exactly thought too far in advance.
If you know there’s a restaurant you know your mum has wanted to check out for a while, now is the perfect time to book her that meal out. Afternoon tea is an English classic, and you could book it just for her and a friend or for the whole family.
Everyone loves an edible gift, and by baking something you save money, can do it all the day before, and your mum knows you’ve put real time and effort into it. It’s also a great idea to bake something together with your siblings, and can then wrap it up in a nice box with ribbons if your feeling fancy.
Try these recipes:
Coconut cake (vegan)
Cath Kidston just opitimises the classic English Mother, and you really can’t go wrong with one of their mugs – they have loads of different patterns and are really affordable.
Their next day delivery is perfect for last minute buying, and their homeware section has so many trinklets your bound to find something your mum (and you) will love.
You can’t really go wrong with a body shop set, but try and pick one you knows is specific to her – maybe pick the flower you know she loves? Or the if she’s mentioned running out of a certain product recently?
If you know she’s a great cook (or just loves giving it a go, even if she does burn every Sunday roast), then your bound to find something in Lakeland. And if cooking isn’t her forte, they stock tonnes of delicious gifts as well.
Everyone loves to be pampered once in a while, so check out your local spa or beauty salon and see what treatments you think she’s like best. Jarrold also do vouchers, so you can pick the amount you spend and then leave it up to her to decide on what she wants.
There’s not many people who don’t like flowers, so why not order a big bouquet to bring with those little shortbread’s or cupcakes you made up to her with a cup of tea as she awakes to brighten her day. If you don’t have a florist nearby, most supermarkets sell bouquets and you can order online.
