With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, there’s never been a more appropriate time to treat the most important woman in your life. She’s been there for you throughout the good times and the bad, so the 31st of March is the perfect opportunity to remind her just how special she truly is.
With that in mind, we spoke to our colleagues in the office at Eventa HQ to see what they were buying for their mums this year and as a result, we’ve come up with this impressive list of gift ideas below! If you were looking for Mother’s Day gift inspiration, then it’s safe to say that you’ve found it right here!
A Subscription To Her Favourite Magazine
A yearly magazine subscription is the gift that keeps giving…each month! If your mum’s got a hobby or interest such as crafts, cooking or gardening, this is the ideal gift that will allow her to relax, unwind and enjoy some time learning about what she loves!
Take a look at Magazines Direct for a massive array of subscriptions choices. There’s something here that every mum will love! Our favourite choice for mum is without a doubt Ideal Home Magazine!
A Spa Day
Perhaps the ultimate way to treat your mum and help her unwind! Why not buy her a spa day this year, where she’ll be able to relax with a heavenly massage, facial or beauty treatment, before enjoying the venue’s pool, jacuzzi and leisure facilities for a morning or afternoon?
Some deals out there even include lunch or an afternoon tea if you’re looking to go all out! Check out Spa Seekers for some indulgent two for one deals which will be sure to put a smile on her face this year.
Lunch and a walk
Nothing beats some fish and chips and walk! If it’s nice weather, you could treat your mum to some tasty fish and chips and then go for a hearty walk afterwards along the beach or in your nearest wooded area. It’s not all about money and buying lots of lavish gifts. Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that are appreciated the most!

Visit to a National Trust Property with Lunch
Be at one with nature and your mum with a trip to one of the National Trust’s stunning locations in the UK. At this time of year, the gardens at these venues are full of colour and vibrancy, so why not get the whole family together, take a stroll and admire some magnificent gardens as they come to life!
Many of the venues will also have cafes and restaurants onsite, perfect for when you’ve all built up your appetite outside! Another idea for a gift is treating your mum to a National Trust membership, allowing her to enjoy special moments and create lasting memories throughout the year!

Nothing beats a gorgeous bunch of fresh flowers or a pretty plant. Yes, flowers aren’t an unusual gift idea for Mother’s Day, but it doesn’t matter. Flowers are traditional and are a really are a great way of saying ‘I love You’. Why not treat her to a new vase too whilst you’re at it? We are loving the fabulous bouquets available on the Morrison’s website. They’re beautiful and competitively priced too!
‘Mr Fox Gloves’ By Scion, at Amara
If your mum’s a keen gardener, then she’ll be extremely grateful for an update of any gardening equipment that she’s had too long! We love the Amara Gardening gift range – there’s so many lovely options available to buy. From affordable to the other end of the scale, there’s something here which can cater for all budgets! We love these ‘Mr Fox Garden Gloves’ by Scion, priced at just £12.50, which will be sure to have mum out in the garden doing what she enjoys most!
Bake a cake from scratch
Sometimes, the best things are homemade – especially cake! Why not make your mum her favourite cake for this coming Sunday? It will mean so much more than simply buying a pre-packaged cake from the supermarket! Nothing beats a good old Victoria Sponge dusted with icing sugar! We recommend this super easy and tasty Mary Berry recipe over on the BBC website.
It takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and around 25-30 minutes to cook. It also serves 12, so there’s more than a modest slice available for everyone. Just make sure mum gets a decent wedge first.
