What does one give to the woman who gave you the biggest gift of all (hint: LIFE)? We’ve put together a selection of our favourite quirky, fun and cool gifts that your mum will love.
THE GIN THEME £13.95
Haven’t you heard? We Brits love our gin (last year we sold 40 MILLION bottles of the good stuff). If your mum has a penchant for G+T’s, she’ll appreciate this print and flavoured lip balm / beauty mirror set from Coconut Grass. The online retailer has plenty more where this came from, including Mojito and Pina Colada flavours and greeting cards.
Ever seen Under the Tuscan sun? Give your mum the real-life version and treat her to a weekend trip to Cignella. She’ll love lounging poolside in the sunshine, exploring the gardens of the beautifully renovated country-side farm and flirting with handsome Italian men. We do not accept responsibility for any mothers who decide to stay here indefinitely…Prices vary. Book now with code MUM17 for 20% discount!
THE TRENCH £165.00
No one does classy fashion like the French. Comptoir des Cotonniers present this timeless, floaty trenchcoat with side slits for Mother’s Day. Got siblings? This is the gift that’ll outshine anything they’ve bought. Unless it’s a trip to Paris, of course.
THE FUNKY JEWELLERY £19.95
Is your mum an art buff? She’ll love the contemporary marble-effect howlite and gold-plated studs and the matching triple band ring; the pieces were inspired by Michelangelo’s ‘The Risen Christ’. Take her along to the exhibition, too. It opens at the National Gallery on 15 March.
THE TITLE From £30
She’s a lady, so why not make her an official one? Purchase a plot of land from the Scottish Highlands on behalf of your mum and she’ll become a Lady of the area you’ve chosen. The title makes for a memorable gift and can even be included on her driving license and bank cards! Plus, the purchase contributes towards helping out conservation efforts in the Highlands.
