With Mothers day just around the corner, if you’re stuck for ideas of what to this mothers day! Fear not, we’ve put together some of the most unusual ideas for gifts that we can think of to ensure you make it a memorable day, and you get a gift as unique as your mum herself.
Flowers, but not just any kind
Did you know you can buy a flower subscription box? Every week or month a number of companies now offer door delivery of fresh flowers so you can keep the home smelling beautiful and looking great year round. Our favourite is Bloom & Wild, who off weekly boxes of flowers for £18. You don’t need to be in to receive the flowers as they come in a handy letterbox sized package, free for you to open and arrange. A great gift subscription, and a weekly reminder for your Mum that you care!
An unusual day out
London is packed with some of the strangest things to do you can imagine, but if you’re looking for a completely different and unique experience to share with your Mum, why not head to the Lee Valley centre where you can try all types of different water activities, from kayaking and tubing to our favourite, white water rafting. It may be a bit chilly, but the thrill will be well worthwhile! A cup of tea afterwards will be well in order, so head back into town and try out the 300 year old Twinings tea shop on the strand.
A handmade ceramic
Nothing says I love you more than the time spent handcrafting a unique gift, and a handmade ceramic is the perfect present, beautiful, thoughtful, and also practical, Every time it’s used, your Mum will remember just how much you love her! If you’re not well versed in ceramics, and don’t happen to have a Kiln in your back garden, there are 100s of different classes available to go to in London from around £20. Check out Obby for an up-to-date list.
Make a photo collage
Sticking with the handmade theme, what better way to celebrate Mum this year than with a photo collage of all your favourite memories. It’s really easy to order collages made of canvas online now, all you need to do is simply upload your favourite photos and companies like Hello Canvas will do the rest, from only £9 a go this a great present and we’re sure Mum will hang it with pride!
Get away from it all in a Tree-house
If you really want to indulge Mum this year, a trip away is the way to go, and we’ve found some incredible places to stay over the years, but nowhere quite as unique a luxury tree-house on the outskirts of London. Some of these beaut tree-houses even have a hot tub where you can indulge and chat away with Mum for hours on end about the latest goss.
