We know that many of you may spend hours looking for unique Mother’s Day gifts but as one of the Tongue in Cheek team and a Mother of three young daughters I just want to say one thing ‘Stop right there!’ Hold your horses! Here’s a handy list of ideas that won’t break the bank and will really ‘mean’ something to your Mum’.
What’s more, these ideas are backed up by a Mums survey completed by Mumsnet last year which revealed that most Mums are simply looking for a relaxing day with some
Here are some great ideas to help you deliver the perfect Mother’s Day gift:
Firstly, the biggest gift you can give most Mums is time!
Time for anything really
- a cup of tea (preferably hot),
- A sit down meal that they haven’t had to cook themselves!
- time to read a book or magazine in peace
- relax in a hot bath
- watch their favourite programme or a great film
- take a country walk
- Or just put their feet up!
Check out these lovely little gifts ideas to make Mother’s Day perfect:
She can have 10 times the ‘me time’ sessions with this set of Dalit Mini Candle Pots for £10. Each candle burns for 4 hours and is made in India from clay pots filled with lavender and vanilla scented blended beeswax. These little candles are a perfect environmentally friendly option as the money from sales goes back to the Indian village where they were made!
Simple pleasures like reading a magazine in peace are often the best! Starting from as little as £1 you can go to town and pick a lovely selection of glossy mags to bring a smile to your Mum’s face!
Combine the magazines with the candles and some beautiful Belgian chocolate. When it comes to personalised chocolate gifts and especially Mother’s Day chocolate gifts it pays to think outside the chocolate box!
Try a different message this year – a cheeky one perhaps!? Check out the range of alternative ‘messages’ for Mum on Mother’s Day at Tongue in Cheek Chocolate Creations. A delightful box of 9 Belgian chocolates costs just £6.99 + delivery.
A good nights’ sleep is a real pick me up for anyone but this is especially true for busy Mum’s. Check out Coopers Apothecary gorgeous Sleepy Head Mist.

A little bit of pampering always goes down a treat. Our top tip is to pick something that your Mum wouldn’t normally choose herself either because she thinks it’s too indulgent, too expensive or she just hasn’t got the time to check these things out!
