33. Best on Amazon
Chilly’s water bottles are the GOAT. I don’t make the rules, so just trust my guidance and get mum a 500ml one in her fave colour (my mum would most definitely want the navy, but you do you).
34. Best at Harrod’s
A high-end bottle of rosé for the champion of rosé drinker in your life? What a good idea, I wonder who came up with that…
35. Best for new mums
If it’s her first Mother’s Day and it’s your job as dad (or mum #2) to show your appreciation, this personalised baby handprint kit will bring a happy tear to her eye and, with the included photo frame, it’ll make an excellent keepsake in years to come.
36. Best for an at-home Old Fashioned
Let’s not gender stereotype, mums like whisky, too, so why not treat her to an old fashioned this Mother’s Day (garnished with an orange peel, of course).
37. Best under £10
A gift with more longevity, this journal from Amazon is designed to hold all mum’s precious stories from before you were born or, rather, before you were old enough to remember. It’ll be a tear jerker in years to come, but it’s bound to bring you closer together, too.
38. Best under £20
A mum mug to solidify her role as the matriarch of the family, not to mention this Keith Brymer Jones pick is way more slick than some of novelty mugs we’ve peeped online…
39. Best tech gift
If she’s into gadgets and interiors, she’ll know how hard it is to find actually nice accessories for all her tech equipment. Enter these wireless chargers from Etsy – not a plastic-laiden eye sore in sight.
40. Mother’s Day gifts that actually look expensive
Estella Bartlett not only make some of my favourite jewellery pieces to date, but now accessories, too? This is just the thing mum will need for all her girls trips, romantic getaways and, of course, mother-daughter (or son) city breaks. Small and perfectly formed, top marks, EB.
41. Best personalised
Complete with either her birthstone alone or rather the whole family’s, this gift from Etsy will keep her nearest and dearest close to her heart, 24/7. J’adore.
42. Best for summer spirit
This guide may as well be an ode to Aperol, at this point. But if you are going to treat her to the aforementioned art print, it’d only be right to bundle in the drink in question, no?
43. Must-see affordable Mother’s Day gifts
More chocolate for your forever-craving-chocolate mum, Hotel Chocolat make some exquisite choccy and their unique flavour profiles (think: caramel cheesecake and cherry deluxe) are a real treat to behold.
44. Best value Mother’s Day gifts for 2023
Ok, I have a confession. This doesn’t technically fall under my £30 price ceiling but I felt obliged to share it with you nonetheless. The chance to take home a Nespresso coffee machine, let alone one of the new Vertuo models, for sub-£50 is unheard of. Sumptuous crema, sweet caffeinated nectar…if you do happen to have an extra £29.99 at your disposal, mum will be ever so grateful.
45. Best new launch
Silky lock fanatics, rejoice, for your dream haircare trio is here and your lovely offspring (yes, that’s you) are going to treat you this March! Cue debit card being removed from said offspring’s purse…
