We spoke to Jenny Grainger a lifestyle and mummy blogger from Chilling with Lucas what she would love to receive on Mother’s Day: “I think a great Mother’s Day gift and outing combined is a spa day. My Mum and I are both going on one together as a Mother’s Day treat. It will be lovely to have quality time together without my son interrupting us. We are also really looking forward to having a treatment, a relax around the pool and thermal suite. We have also completed the day with an afternoon tea finished off with a glass of Prosecco!”

A Book

If your mum loves nothing more than a chilled afternoon on the sofa delving into a good book, then you already have the perfect Mother’s Day present! Whether she loves fiction or non-fiction, you’re bound to find the perfect read for her.

Consider some of the following options from authors of all genres:

Mum Boss by Vicki Psarias – A guide to surviving and thriving at work and home.

From Mother to Mother by Lisa Faulkner – The cookbook every mother has been waiting for.

Against All Odds by Danielle Steel – A Wall Street workaholic tells a story of how she finds love against all odds.

Coming Home by Fern Britton – An uplifting feel-good novel with family secrets at its heart.

A Secret Garden by Katie Fforde – A romantic novel set in the backdrop of a beautiful manor house in the Cotswolds.

If you’re looking to go one step further, try and find a book signing for one of her favourite authors or a book you know she will love and go along with her for the perfect mother, daughter day out.

Days Out

Some of the best gifts can be a simple as you and your family taking your mum on a lovely day out. Whether you’re looking at staying local or planning something a little bigger, there is an abundance of opportunities right on your doorstep.

Vicki from Honest Mum explains how she loves a family day out: “What I'd love more than anything this Mother's Day is two homemade cards from my sons, 9 and 6 (something they love to do each year for me) and some quality time together as a family on the Sunday, outdoors ideally at one of our favourite places like a National Trust park.”

A visit to a National Trust property, a wonderful stately home or afternoon tea are all wonderful ideas for a relaxing day out.

If you really want to take the weight off your mums’ feet, why not book her in for a delicious meal at our range of award-winning restaurants and bars? Enjoy a 3-course meal at Charrington Grill or a tipple or two at The Champagne Bar. Either way, spending time together can be as much as a gift as any.

Pamper Hamper

If relaxing is more her thing, then how about creating her a pamper hamper? Whether you buy a pre-packed hamper of goodness or you’re looking to create your own, a gift she can continue using for months to come is a wonderful idea.

Not on The High Street is the perfect one-stop shop for a pre-erected hamper full of luscious goodies from bath bombs to mini tipples and candles. Ranging from £14 to £90, there is an option for every mum.

The range of Champney’s gift sets is extensive, so if you’re unsure about where to start, take a look at these options.

If you’re looking to do a bit of DIY, then creating a box or basket full of her favourite goodies is the perfect thoughtful idea. Choose her favourite Champneys products like the Cloud Nine Indulgent Body Scrub or the Citrus Blush Enlivening Hand Lotion, add some of her favourite chocolates, a mini bottle of champagne and a bath bomb for good measure and you’ve got a thoughtful gift at a reasonable price, what more could she ask for?


It may sound cliché, but there really is nothing better than chocolates on Mother’s Day. If you’re looking for chocolates with that extra special touch, there are various chocolate companies who will let you personalise your chocolate offering. Add special messages, pictures or build your very own bar with their favourite flavours. Head to the Grown Up Chocolate Company or Chocolab for some more inspiration.
