After my I published my Christmas gift guide the other day, I realised that there is so much out there on the internet that sometimes it can be quite daunting to know where to start. Gift guide blogs are becoming some of my favourites to read and they’re increasingly popular too because there are so many different ones, and ideas that I would have never thought of myself.
Today I thought I would write a guide on Christmas gifts for Mum’s for the most important lady in your life! I actually really enjoy giving presents, especially when it’s to my family and seeing their reaction makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Sometimes Mum’s can be notoriously hard to buy for, as they are usually of the age that if they want anything themselves, they’ll just buy it, or if they’re like my Mum, they insist they don’t want anything – but I’ve never fallen for that one!
Something you can never go wrong with is a piece of jewelry, especially if your Mum has her own signature style – perhaps she’s a lover of silver, or would rather a diamond piece – there are so many lovely places to buy special presents on the high street or online
If she’s a tea lover, why not get her a personalised teapot or biscuit set? Personalised Christmas gifts are becoming increasingly popular, and I for one love receiving anything with my name on it! Or if she is more of a lover of a pamper evening, a bath caddy or a gorgeous box set full of delicious-smelling products could be right up her street.
If your Mum is more of a foodie, then something like a personalised cheese board with her name on, or maybe your parent’s anniversary could be a great gift, or even a wine decanter, if they’re anything like mine. One thing I saw that I thought was gorgeous was a handmade wooden family tree; this not only has meaning but is a bit different than something you might find in the shops and is something she’ll keep forever.
Maybe you don’t have loads to spend this year, and that’s fine; sometimes making something handmade is the best option or if you search cheap Christmas gift ideas online, there are loads of possibilities there too. Something like a box of lovely chocolates or a nice bottle of wine would definitely put a smile on most Mum’s faces (and mine!)
Christmas can be an expensive time, and there is nothing wrong with having a smaller budget at all and there are loads of present ideas you can get and not spend a fortune on. It’s also good to plan in advance how much you want and have to spend on people so you are aware of the budget you’re working with.
I hope this post has given you a bit of inspiration about ideas of what to get your dearest mother, and if you have any more then I’d love to read them in the comments!
