Gift ideas for Mother's Day 2017
Mothering Sunday is fast approaching (note it in your diary: 26 March 2017). Don't know what to buy your dear mum? Or need to subtly leave a list of ideas lying around for children to find? Take inspiration from these gifts which come recommended by Mumsnetters.
Hush raglan top, £30
“I really recommend the Hush Raglan T-shirts. I've got them in all the colours.”
“I love the Raglan T-shirt in 'rose' – I don't normally wear bright colours but it looks really vibrant and cheery for spring.”Buy it now
Spicery subscription, from £22
“A friend got me a subscription to The Spicery, and it's fab! I make curry a lot but this made the best curry ever.”
“I blimmin' love them. We had a Japanese curry tonight. It was lovely and unusual.”Buy it now
Amazon Echo & Echo Dot, £49.99 - £149.99
“I recommend the Echo Dot. You can ask it questions about anything, like facts from history or the weather outside. You can also ask it to play any worldwide radio station and it does it. It's all voice controlled.”
“We have two, and I use them as a hands-free timer in the kitchen, or for a news update while I am getting dressed in the morning. I love them. Soon I will have voice controlled lights!”Buy it now
Bloom gin, £20.10
“You can't beat Bloom Gin with Fever Tree tonic, ice and a sliced strawberry. It has to be served in a proper gin glass though.”Buy it now
White Company cotton robe, £55
“My lovely daughters got me a White Company bath robe for Christmas. It's grey towelling but very, very soft (like fleece) and it doesn't go weird and claggy when wet. I may never take it off again.“
“I have a White Company towelling bath robe, and it is very soft and luscious.”Buy it now
Chanel No. 19, from £52
“Chanel No. 19 is extraordinary stuff: clear green, with iris, mossy and leather heart notes.”
“It's so splendid, I think it can be worn anytime, anywhere.”Buy it now
Emma Bridgewater Mummy mug, £19.95
“I just adore Emma Bridgewater. I think my tea tastes so much better from one of these cups!”
“Another Emma Bridgewater fan here. The mugs have a lovely chunky feel to them, with a very sturdy base.”Buy it now
Fjallraven Kanken backpack, £65
“I love my Fjallraven Kanken. They come in really nice colours, are comfy to wear, and are waterproof too."
“I have this in black and have been using it a few years now and there is not a sign of wear. It's some of the best money I ever spent.”Buy it now
Mumsnet Book of the Month: Animal by Sara Pascoe, £9
“I have just finished Animal. It is a semi-autobiographical and anthropological history of women and sex. It is very funny and surprisingly informative.
“Animal by Sara Pascoe is funny and interesting and she is vulnerable and truthful as well as amusing. Kept me entertained through sleepless nights.”Buy it now
Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, from £27
“I love it. Twice a week I put it on my face for the night, and it makes my skin so soft. It's also great if you have dry or cracked skin on your hands. It's used by all the make-up artists for chapped lips as well.”
“I love 8 Hour Cream, and a tube lasts me months and months because you don't need a lot.”Buy it now
Birchbox, £10 a month
“I got a Birchbox subscription for Christmas, and I'm really impressed.”
“I recommend Birchbox, without a doubt. Consistently good, high quality products, and having had pretty much every beauty box subscription going, Birchbox is the only one I will be continuing with.”Buy it now
Boden pyjamas, £15-30
“Not at all mumsy. I bought nice jersey ones, and immediately went back for another pair. They have washed beautifully so far.”
“I love Boden PJ bottoms. In winter they come in lovely soft brushed cotton. I have several and they last well. They also do little PJ vests and cashmere loungewear.”Buy it now
