Mother’s Day is long gone, but there’s never a bad time to treat mum to something special. Homebirds will love something for the house – be it a plush new product for the lounge or something snuggly for her to wear as she relaxes at home. As a mum myself, I’ve curated this wish list in the hope that the husband or little ones will see it and promptly pick up the hint! Now all I need to do is leave my laptop lying around…
Monthly flower subscription
If, like me, getting flowers never fails to put a smile on your face then you’ll love a flower subscription. My mum loves nothing more than having fresh flowers in the house and would put them in every room if she could, so to have a beautiful box of blooms turning up once a month will make her day, every time. Try Bloom & Wild’s subscription for the most beautiful seasonal bouquets that you can choose to come at a frequency that suits her.
Frame a special photo
An inexpensive but sentimental gift that won’t fail to make her smile, framing a special memory of the two of you together is a great idea for the home-loving mum. I love this floral print design from John Lewis – perfect for spring, it’s sure to get pride of place on her mantelpiece.
A luxurious chocolate box
Forgo the classic supermarket branded chocs in favour of something far more luxurious. These Charbonnel et Walker Champagne Bon Bons are simply delicious, and make a decadent treat for upcoming birthdays or anniversaries. With their fanciful French box and pastel hues, they look pretty placed on her coffee table and are almost too special to eat! (almost…)
A new clock
We all know mums are expert timekeepers (I know this myself having to juggle the routines of my little ones!) so why not treat her to a statement wall clock so she can keep track of the minutes in style? Art deco designs make a chic and classic statement and complement almost any interior design – I like this bold copper one from Umbra.
My favourite thing to do is sit back and relax on the sofa after a long day, even better if it’s with a good book! My mum is the same and loves nothing more than bedding down on the couch to read the papers on a Sunday or enjoy a cheeky G&T in front of the TV on a Friday night. Updating her living room accessories is the simplest way to do this. Colourful printed velvet cushions are my current favourite, but a super-soft throw will never go amiss either.
For mums like no other, a small but special piece for the lounge or dining room is a heart-warming gift idea. My favourite is this luxe marble coaster from John Lewis. Perfect for placing beneath a cup of tea, it’ll make her smile whenever she sees it as it’ll remind her of you.
A divine dressing gown
Mums who love nothing more than staying in and snuggling up deserve to lounge around in only the finest of fabrics – this plush dressing gown from The White Company comes crafted from pure cashmere and transforms her morning routine into something a whole lot more luxurious.
I know I’d love to receive any of these, how about you? Is there anything that you would add? If you liked this post please share it with your friends or Pin it for later…
