There’s no one quite like Mum, and she deserves the perfect gift. As you know, with our build your own boxes, we’re all about all things bespoke. My Mum has, on numerous occasions, told me she doesn’t want anything in the way of presents on Mother’s Day, but if I didn’t bother, you’d bet correctly that I would have a sulky Mum on my hands. Whatever type of woman your Mum is, she’s deserving of a nice treat and a handmade option is sure to put a smile on her face. If your crafting skills leave nothing to be desired but you still want to give your Mum a more personal gift that’s thought out and put together by you, a DIY Mother’s Day Hamper may be just the thing.
Hampers are designed to be created entirely with your own Mum in mind, but I’ve shared my own to provide some inspiration. Whether she’s a fashion lover, beauty enthusiast or foodie, it’s the perfect way to combine the things she’ll love…
THE GIFT OF BEAUTY
If she’s into beauty, you’re on to a winner with our indulgent Mother & Daughter Box. If she’s not usually that fussed over her lotions and potions, introduce her to our curated edit of 14 beautiful products, perfect for a girly pamper session. Worth over £100, with brands including Philosophy, Paula’s Choice and The Body Shop, this is a lovely way to spoil someone special this Mother’s Day.
A SWEET NOTE
Treat your Mum to a bottle of her signature scent, or introduce her to a new fragrance this Mother’s Day. Sweet and vibrant, the Accessorize Lovelily fragrance envelops the skin with notes of raspberry, orange, jasmine and sweet vanilla.
SAY IT WITH JEWELLERY
Nothing says I love you quite like a personalised piece of jewellery. It wouldn’t be Mother’s Day if you didn’t do something a little sentimental (OK, maybe I do like to be mushy sometimes). This gorgeous sterling silver layered necklace from Hurley Burley features a disc charm that can be personalised with an initial and a long bar for a word, message or saying. This bespoke gift comes packaged in a beautiful gift box which can be gift wrapped with a personal message free of charge. The best thing? The delivery is super-fast, so ideal for any last-minute panic.
Flowers are the magical touch to any hamper, but how about including a beautiful potted plant? If there’s one difference between my Mum and I, it’s the fact she can actually keep plants alive. Waitrose have a great selection of Mother’s Day plants and flowers so the options are limitless.
If your Mum has a sweet tooth, may I recommend the ever so fancy Charbonnel et Walker? Boasting both style and substance, the Sea Salt Chocolate Selection is one of my favourites for a special occasion. You might want to add a ‘must share with doting Daughter’ tag on this one, ladies!
