Mother’s day is rapidly approaching here in the UK, and while we might not be able to spend the day together you can still show your mum just how much you care by sending a really lovely gift.
Etsy is one of my favourite places to find special, unique presents for all occasions, and shopping there is also a great way to support small businesses.
Here are my top finds for Mother’s day this year, all from Etsy and all shipping from the UK.
1. The ultimate gin makers kit
I love this idea for a bit of a twist on giving gin as a present for Mother’s day.
The kit contains everything your mum needs to make her own gin (you just need to add some cheap vodka and a bit of patience) and the reviews over on Etsy are overwhelmingly positive.
2. A Mother’s day gift box
You can choose between a medium or large gift box, full of little treats to spoil your mum – from chocolates and sweets to scented candles and beauty products.
These kinds of boxes are perfect if there’s nothing in particular your mum really wants, but you still want to make her feel special.
3. An original piece of art
A piece of art to hang up at home would make a really lovely present that will make your mum smile every time she walks past it. And I might be a bit biased as the artist is my friend, but these original flower paintings are just gorgeous and perfect for someone who likes one-of-a-kind pieces.
4. Just another manic mum-day mug
This cute slogan mug would be great for any busy mum. The writing is printed on both sides of the mug, so you can see it whichever way you chose to hold it, and it’s also dishwasher and microwave safe, perfect for busy lives.
5. A pop-out photo album in a box
Pick out a selection of photos that will make your mum smile, and turn them into a really special little photo album.
6. A special gift voucher
If there’s something you want to do with your mum that you can’t do at the moment thanks to covid restrictions, then create a special gift voucher that you can give that promises a special day together in the future.
7. A string of pretty little vases
This sweet little gift would brighten any corner of your mum’s home. The floral twine holds 5 tiny vases filled with little flower arrangements, in either purple, pink or white.
8. A DIY macramé heart kit
If your mum loves getting creative and crafty then this kit would be the perfect gift.
The kit contains everything you need to make a lovely macramé heart to hang up at home, including the rope and stick and full, step-by-step instructions.
