Still thinking about what to get mom for Mother’s Day this Sunday? If the answer is in the affirmative, then I have some more ideas for things that I would definitely appreciate come Sunday morning. This time, there are no flowers or chocolates in sight, but there are lots of other things to ponder and enjoy.
A Gift Experience From Buyagift
A gift experience from Buyagift is perfect for the person who would rather do something for Mother’s Day, rather than just have a present. Buyagift has a brilliant range of experiences, from those that can be enjoyed alone, to those that are meant for two.
There are spa days and treatments, a range of wonderful afternoon teas, weekend breaks in a range of destinations , theatre weekends where you get to enjoy the best of London’s West End and even a flight in a hot air balloon if your mom loves to live life on the wild side.
The gifts range in cost so there is something for every price point, and can be delivered by post, or as an e-ticket, which means you still have plenty of time to get yours before Mother’s Day (what a fabulous treat to pop up in your inbox!).
Mother’s Day is a time to give mom a special treat, and she will not be disappointed with a gift experience from Buyagift.

Bayliss and Harding Gifts From Victoria Plum
A pampering gift that encourages mom to take some time for herself is a good idea for Mother’s Day. Bayliss and Harding is a brand that has all the look and feel of something luxurious and exclusive, but is stocked at an affordable price set.
Victoria Plum currently has a whole range of Bayliss and Harding gift sets, with my personal favourite being the Jojaba, silk and almond oil gown set. This is a beautifully boxed gift set that combines wonderfully scented body products – a body wash, hand and body lotion and some bath crystals, but adds in a soft and cuddly bath robe, so mom can have the complete spa treatment from the comfort of her own home.

Skincare From Dermacare Direct
Good quality skincare products are always a good idea for Mother’s Day, particularly if your mom is worried about ageing skin. The HYDROPEPTIDE PEEL – ANTI-WRINKLE POLISH & PLUMP PEEL which you can find at Dermacare Direct, is a two step skincare programme that promises to improve the tone, appearance and feel of your skin within a few minutes of using.
The products contain Lactic acid which helps to reduce age spots, fine lines and wrinkles while vitamin C and peptides protect collagen and brighten your complexion. Green tea antioxidants defend cells against environmental damage and cucumber extract soothes irritation.
Exfoliating our skin is very important, and this duo makes it easier to do and does give instant improvement.
Beautiful Earrings From Epitome Jewellery
I was introduced to Epitome Jewellery by the founder of the company Radina. She explained that Epitome Jewellery offers fine fashion jewellery for mums that want to feel trendy and cool, fashion forward ideas that are also elegant, and easy to wear everyday to add that bit of sparkle and shine to the school run.
Epitome jewellery offers a twist on styles that you see on the High Street, and keeps the prices affordable whilst creating something that is very fashionable. Current favourites are the ear climbers – an earring that gives the impression of my than one as they climb up the ear. My favourite ear climbers are the star ear climbers that are silver plated and contain cubic zircona stones, these are so delicate and pretty and very light to wear, important if you want to wear them all day.
Epitome Jewellery pieces are available at http://www.epitomejewellery.com/ and also on Etsy, SilkFred and Freemans Online.
Alcatel 3c in Metallic Gold
If you have a little more money in your Mother’s Day budget, you could choose an affordable smartphone that could be your moms new lifesaver. The Alcatel 3c in metallic gold is not only gorgeous in its appearance, it also has many similar features to premium devices such as an iPhone XR, but at a fraction of the price.
Key features of this phone include:-
- Fingerprint sensor for added security
- – Dual SIM
- – 6 Inch HD Screen
- 18:9 slim aspect ratio meaning more screen in a slimmer body, making it easier to hold and scroll one handed
This is the perfect gift for a mom who loves social media, likes to keep in touch with friends, and loves the idea, if not the price of a smartphone.

Luxury haircare that treats, restores and nourishes the hair could be a great gift idea if mom has been fretting about her crowning glory. The Monat hydration system has been created to address all hair problems, including restoring strength, shine and moisture with added vibrancy and lustre.

Seksy Elegance Fragrance

In addition to this being a really lovely fragrance, the bottle is embellished with a Swarovski® crystal and it also comes with another detachable Swarovski® charm that can be added to your favourite necklace or charm bracelet.
Botonique – A botanical drink for wine lovers
If you are looking for something a little different for a wine lover, or maybe want to get a gift for someone who no longer drinks alcohol, then have a look at Botonique. This is a botanical, non alcoholic sparking drink that comes in the most stunning of bottles and helps to replace nutrients. It contains no added sugar, or artificial sweeteners, flavours or preservatives, and the average glass contains just 14 calories per 100ml.
Botonique say: Delicious with wine, after wine, alongside wine or instead of wine. But it isn’t wine.
This would work well for romantic dinners, afternoon teas and for baby showers where mom to be isn’t allowed to drink.
Botonique prices start from £15 for two 750ml bottles, you can find out more here.
