Unusual Mother’s Day gifts

Is your mum the kind of woman who has everything she could ever want? Or maybe this year you want to get her something that’s just a little bit different? Well, we’re here to help, with some unusual Mother’s Day gifts and ideas for perfect presents for the mum who has everything.

Gin jigsaw puzzle and a bottle of Salcombe gin

If your mum loves a cheeky G&T and a bit of a puzzle, then boy do we have the gift for you. Give your mum a bit of a boost with the Pick Me Up gin puzzle from I Want One of Those. With 500 pieces to puzzle out and reveal a charming illustration, it’s enough for a bit of a challenge but it won’t have her tearing her hair out. (And if she’d just prefer a bottle, then good news – you can now send a luxurious bottle of Salcombe gin along with any one of our cards!)

Temperature control smart mug

Does your mum love a good cup of tea? And doesn’t she deserve the best? Well, the Ember mug from Firebox is (probably) the best mug for hot drinks ever invented. It will keep hot drinks at the perfect temperature all day long – no more forgetting about a cuppa then discovering it’s gone ice cold. No more burning your tongue on boiling hot coffee. Give your mum the gift of perfect drinks, every single time, and you might just win Mother’s Day forever.

Best Mother’s Days presents she’ll love

Sometimes, you just can’t beat a classic. So instead of wracking your brains and scouring the corners of the internet for a gift, give your mum something timeless that you know she’ll love.

Suede mule slippers

Okay, this might be one to skip if your mum loves Louboutins and wouldn’t be caught dead in a slipper, but if your mum loves to be cosy while still keeping at least a little bit stylish, you could do much worse than these classic mules from Next. With a soft and comfy faux-fur lining in a big range of colours, these are sure to be a big hit with most mums.
