If we’re honest… Mothers Day can be quite stressful.
You have to make time for your Mum, whilst remembering to make time for the in-laws, and if you’re a Mum you should be relaxing yourself.
But a day dedicated to telling our Mums how great they are deserves to be celebrated… and great Mums deserve great gifts. To help you be ready for this Mothering Sunday, here’s our pick of the top gifts for Mums this year.
A beautiful smelling candle can instantly lift your mood, like magic! Adding a candle to a room makes it feel so much more homely and can be the perfect finishing touch. We love candles by Neom, or for something a little different try Wildhearts collection (find them on Etsy). Their names alone will put a smile on your face. Our favourite… HAPPY.
A day out
A gift doesn’t have to be something you wrap up in pretty paper. It can mean so much more to promise your Mum some of your time. Make a date for a long lunch, go for a Sunday stroll, or invite her over for a delicious dinner – but be sure to keep it just the two of you.
We recently became friends with Yawn London. They make Pyjamas so soft that it’s become even harder to get out of bed in the morning. They're beautifully made from 100% cotton, feel soft like butter and come in a range of quirky designs. Yawn are treating all Secret Linen customers to an amazing 20% before the 14/03/2016 - simply enter SECRET20 at the checkout.
A bunch of blooms
When in doubt, flowers always go down well. Make the effort to take a trip to the florists and pick out what you think she’ll really love. There’s so much difference between flowers that you’ve hand-picked and those that you’ve picked up at the supermarket. If distance is a problem then try Bloom & Wild for beautiful flowers that can be delivered right through her letterbox.
There's something about receiving a homemade gift that just makes it feel like so much more love went into it. We love sharing secrets and we love homemade gifts so we've had our Mum share her delicious maramalade recipe on our blog so that you can whip up a batch for your Mum. If you're not a whizz in the kitchen, try getting crafty and upcycling your old pillowcases.
Treat her bed
Treat your Mum to a bedtime treat with one of our cotton throws or bedspreads. Wrap up together on the sofa with a cup of tea or give your Mum the comfiest lie-in ever. If you want to give her bed a full makeover splash out and choose one of our beautiful sets of bed linen.
Make sure it's something she loves...
Whatever you choose to give your Mum this year, just make sure it puts a smile on her face. Perhaps there’s a fancy bakery that sell her favourite cupcakes? Or a bottle of wine she’d only ever buy at Christmas. Whether you choose to buy her favourite perfume, cheese or chocolate have a fantastic Mothers Day!
