As many of us won’t be able to celebrate Mother’s Day with our mums this year, we can still show our appreciation and celebrate all that she is with a thoughtful gift. With some creativity and preparation, Harvey Roe has got the perfect gift suggestions to give her the Mother’s Day gift she deserves.

Create your own hamper

Fill your hamper with all your mum’s favourite things. Whether it’s full of indulgences or more luxury items such as perfume, jewellery and her favourite tipple. This thoughtful gift will let her know you are thinking of her.


This would be a great option for mums looking to improve their skincare regime. This could include a night cream, eye serum or a make-up melting mask. If you are unsure where to start then here are some popular examples:

  • Liz Earle skincare is radiant, nourishing and uses natural ingredients
  • Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Moisture Essence would be a great option as it directly targets wrinkles for a youthful glow
  • Olay Regenerist 3 Point Firming Anti-Ageing Cream is a moisturiser with skin-plumping formula to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Personalised gifts

Everyone loves a personalised gift so why not create a photo album including sentimental family memories, or perhaps she would love a piece of jewellery containing her birthstone. Again, if on a budget then instead you could make her a playlist with all her favourite songs.


This Mother’s Day, why not send your mum a gift that she will keep receiving every month?

  • A12-month magazine subscription will keep her busy all year round!
  • Beauty – Glossybox UK delivers a selection of 5 beauty treats per month that will leave her looking and feeling great – £25 per month
  • Book subscriptions – Chocolate & Book is a monthly book box subscription where you can receive a new book from your chosen genre with additional chocolate and a hot drink – £99 per month. Another great option would be Book Voyage which is country themed, it contains a foreign book written by a critically-acclaimed local author which is then translated to English and also provides tea or coffee from that country as well as a sweet or savoury treat. This would be a great choice as many of us have not been able to experience divulging into a different culture for the past year – £14.99 per month.

Letterbox flowers

Flowers will always be a welcoming gift for any occasion – so show your appreciation with a surprise bunch on Mother’s Day. Letterbox flowers are a great alternative if you are unable to see each other this year. This can be done through several websites such as Bloom and Wild or Moonpig.

Relaxation gift set

Following on from the skincare theme, a full relaxation set may be a more expensive option but a great gift as you can treat your mum to something she wouldn’t normally receive. This gift could include options such as a facial steamer, clay face mask, sea bath salts and a scented candle.

Home spa treatment

If you are on a budget and are fortunate enough to be spending the day with your mum, why not create your own home spa treatment. This allows her to be spoilt as you give her a massage, manicure/pedicure and facial. Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be expensive, just showing appreciation will be enough.

Luxury cream tea hamper

Make her day extra special by creating a luxury cream tea hamper. Include items such as scones, cake, traditional breakfast tea and more. If you would prefer to send a pre-made hamper then you can use websites such as:

  • Cutter & Squidge
  • Fortnum & Mason
  • M&S
  • Not on the Highstreet
  • Funky Hampers

Cocktail mixing set

Wanting to create a boozy Mother’s Day? Another slightly more expensive option would be to provide her with a cocktail mixing set and if you are apart you could host your very own virtual happy hour. This will allow you to connect and celebrate together by creating entertainment. You can find cocktail recipes and tutorials online which you could then teach her – educational and fun!!

Cook her favourite dish

There’s nothing like a home-cooked meal to show how well you know and love your mum; so why not surprise her and create your own restaurant experience. Alternatively, perhaps she would appreciate a range of her favourite baked goods. If you are unable to visit or are on a budget then perhaps you could make her a sentimental, handwritten recipe book containing a range of dishes you know she will love.

We hope this blog has helped you decide on the perfect Mother’s Day gift which shows your love and appreciation.
