Struggling for Mother’s Day gift ideas? You’re in the right place!
By now, I think I’ve established myself as an Etsy enthusiast. I shared some super cute Halloween goodies back in October and pulled together a crazy cat person gift guide as part of Blogmas. It’s one of my favourite sites, both for myself, and for gifts for others. So, you know, Mother’s Day was just another excuse to spend a few hours lost in beautiful, handmade delights.
Yep, in a couple of weeks, on the 31st of March, Mother’s Day will be upon us here in the UK. There’s no excuse not to celebrate your lovely mums but I know life is hectic so I’m taking care of things for you. Don’t worry, though, I’m happy to let you take the credit with your mum.

Am I including this because it’s tiny and I can’t resist pocket-sized goodies? Probably. In any case, it’s a cute and unique way to show your mum some love.
Inside the box is a bunch of flowers with a difference. Upon opening, your mum will reveal a miniature vase with a bunch of pink paper roses. Next to that, there are the words “love you a bunch”. It’s a loving sentiment inside an adorable keepsake!
Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to cost a lot. It’s the thought that counts. I think this charming gift is proof of that!
Your mum may not NEED another mug, but it’s no reason not to get her one. Especially when that mug broadcasts her appropriate title as “Best Mum Ever”. This mug has the added bonus of a Terry’s chocolate orange tucked away inside it so it’s all the more reason to get it.
So simple but so pretty. This dish would be great for storing jewellery, hair grips and any other bits and bobs your mum might have. It comes in a little gift bag, too!
If your mum has a sweet tooth, I’m sure she’ll be chuffed with this! It contains a floral fabric hanging heart for her to keep as well as plenty of sweeties to nibble on! Amongst them, there are Love Hearts, strawberry milkshake bottles and a pink and white nougat bar. Yum!
Myself and my siblings affectionately refer to my mum as “mama bear” and I couldn’t resist including this. It’s SO CUTE! It doesn’t say mama bear anywhere on it, though, so you could just as easily gift it to someone else (like your grandma) if you wanted to.
Celebrate all of your mum’s favourite things with this print. Whether she loves George Clooney, shopping or coffee, you can list them all here. Maybe sneak a compliment or two in there as well. The A4 size is a little bit extra at £14.00.
I think this is so elegant! Your mum can store all of her makeup essentials in here to keep them handy. There are two given options – Mum or Mom – but you can select “other” and add another name in the notes when you make your purchase.
If, like me, you are unfortunate to have many miles between you and your mum, this could be a good gift to choose. The label on the front of the candle says: “Mum, even though we are miles apart, you are always in my heart.” So, as long as she has the candle, she has a reminder that you’re thinking of her, no matter the distance. You have the choice of several scents, too, such as cranberry delight and luscious vanilla!
I feel like it’s impossible to get mums to look after themselves! They’re usually so busy taking care of everyone else. This is a sweet way to give them a nudge in the right direction. It includes scented foot cream, bath fizzers, cosy pink socks, scented candle and some chocolates. Everything she needs for a little pamper session!
This made me chuckle, and I imagine it would bring a smile to your mum’s face, too. It also reminds me of any time I’ve tried to convince my mum that I’m her favourite. She usually has a response like “you’re my favourite youngest child.” Smart move, Mum.
If you fancy being a bit more creative, a scrapbook would be an appropriate choice. Fill it with pictures, messages and memories. I’d recommend keeping a few pages spare, though – for any happy times that lie ahead.
This starts at £15, but you can choose the size and how many pages you have, and the price will adjust accordingly. It can be personalised with a message on the back cover, too!
How about a gift that keeps on giving all year round? This box has 52 cards – one for each week of the year. I feel like there are two options with this one. Firstly, you could give it to her with the blank cards and then fill them with the memories you make throughout the year. This works if you currently spent lots of time with your mum but also as an incentive to make more effort if you don’t.
OR you could write a message/memory on each card and then she can read one every week throughout the year. Again, this might be a good option if you live far away from each other. That is, of course, if you trust her not to peek at them all.
I hope you’ve found something suitable on this list or are at least brimming with inspiration! If not, there are a whole bunch of additional ideas in Etsy’s Mother’s Day section*.
