MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE: 9 UNIQUE GIFT IDEAS
Here in rainy old England Mother’s Day is this coming Sunday, and I know a lot of people are thinking ‘Ahhhhhhhh crud!’ as they realise they have yet to get their mama something special. Worry not, because I’ve compiled a list of some really cool and unique ideas that will blow the usual box of chocolates out of the window! Every product I’ve mentioned comes from an independent business owner, so rather than lining the pockets of a big corporate company, by purchasing one of these gifts you’re helping to put food on a family’s table 🙂

The Stay At Home Mom’s Guide To Life
If you haven’t heard my banging on about this course yet, then seriously, where the heck have you been? This course was created by my good friend Abby who blogs over at Joyful Homemakers Club, and it is seriously awesome. If you know a stay at home mama, then you NEED to get her this course for Mother’s Day. It could be life changing!
The Proverbs 31 Homemaker E-Book*
Y’all know I love Jami and all of her products. This is her newest E-Book that she has just last week released! I cannot wait to dig into it. You know that lady that is completely intimidating and makes you feel like you’re just not good enough? Yep, the Proverbs 31 lady, that’s the one. Well Jami’s book will completely change the way you see her. Rather than being someone to feel overwhelmed by, we should be learning from her, and Jami is going to show you exactly how by taking you through the 6 characteristics of a wise woman.
We all know about experience gifts, but have you heard about the company that is tailored specifically towards mamas? Ursula is a friend over at Channel Mum and she runs this awesome company. They were even featured on This Morning recently! Choose a mum day that will suit the person you are buying for, from manicures to flower subscriptions, from massages to a cleaning service (yep – if anyone fancies getting me a Mother’s Day gift this Sunday I am ALL UP for the cleaning service!)
Rainbow Soul Surprise Boxes
Another lovely ladypreneur from Channel Mum, Charlotte is honestly one of the nicest people I have ever met and she sells these amazing subscription boxes. They focus on self-care and holistic healing and they are SO freaking beautiful! Sign your mama up for a monthly surprise box for the gift that keeps on giving 🙂
Mama Bear T-Shirt
This is so cute and I 100% want one for myself (my hubby even calls me mama bear – it’s perfect!) These t-shirts come in a few different colour options so you’ll be sure to find a style that you love, and while you’re checking out her store be sure to browse through her other designs as they are all stunning. I love the rustic woodland vibe she has going on!
Colourful Slipper Crochet Pattern
Does your mother enjoy crafting? How about getting a crochet pattern for her this Mother’s Day? I absolutely love these colourful slippers by Tuula Maaria, and would actually quite like to make some of these myself. If I could crochet that is!
The Little Bottle – A Bedtime Story For Grownups*
This is a really cute idea – a bedtime story for grownups! Just because we’re old and haggard (well, I am at least!) doesn’t mean we can’t drift into the good old written word before sleepytime. This short book focuses on building your relationship with Christ, and explores some of the mysteries of faith in a gentle, basic way.
Bible Verse Print
These prints are just stunningly beautiful, and would look so amazing in any room. They’re done by a lovely lady called Christie, and the best bit about these prints is they are digital downloads, meaning there is no waiting for shipping! You simply download them to your computer and then either print at home, or if you want amazing quality you can take it to a printer. It’s so easy and so inexpensive!
Enhancement Lash Boost
We all want bigger, flutterier lashes (flutterier is a word… right?) so this Mother’s Day make sure your mama is pampered with this amazing product. It is a nightly conditioning treatment, and though I have yet to try it myself, I’ve heard some really amazing things about it.
