11th March Mother’s Day – Inspirational Gifts For Every Budget
They comfort us when times are bad, cheer us on when we need encouragement, and are always proud of us even when we’re not so proud of ourselves. Of course we’re talking about mums – aren’t they just the best?
This Mother’s Day, show your mum how you feel with the perfect gift – whatever your budget.
The best thing about mums is that they love the things we make them as much as the expensive things we buy them. If you’re a little strapped for cash this Mother’s Day, here are a few things you can whip up at home.
- Homemade bath bombs – All you need is baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, Epsom salts, dried flowers, food colouring, and essential oils to whip up your own mini bath bombs. Even better, you can tailor the bombs with your mum’s favourite flowers and scents to make sure they’re more personal than anything shop bought.
- Agate coasters – A great gift for trendy mums, these beautiful coasters look a lot more expensive than they are and are foolproof for even the clumsiest of makers!
- Pastel chocolate bark – One of the best gifts to make for mums with a sweet tooth, this pretty pastel present is super easy to whip up at home. Mix a little food colouring into melted white chocolate to turn it into a range of pastel colours of your choice, pour the melted chocolate onto a tray lined with baking paper, then top with your mum’s favourites (edible pearls, dried edible flowers, edible glitter, or dried and candied fruit all look beautiful). When the chocolate’s set and cooled, break it into nibble-worthy shards and pop it in a cellophane bag complete with a ribbon.
If you’ve got a little more to spend, why not treat mum to some of these lovely things?

- Afternoon Tea at Kew Gardens – At only £39 for two people, this is a great way to treat your mum to a day out that won’t break the bank.
