Mothers Day 2018

Mothers' Day is fast approaching, so we've put together a list of important information you need to know and inspo to get your creative ideas flowing!

I bet you wish you were able to afford to hire a private yacht and sail her off to the Maldives, but we can never seem to find a gift good enough to show our appreciation to the person that taught us everything. 

We've rounded up some options for those who are on a budget, to those who are wanting to indulge their mum some more this year!


When is Mothers Day?

Mothers Day is on Sunday 11th March, so if you haven't already got your cards sent out to home from uni - now is the time to do it! Either take yourself down to Tesco's or personalise your card and order from sites such as or 

Moonpig and Funky Piegon also have a variety of gift ideas you can add along with your order and are often delivered within a maximum of 3 days, but usually aim for next day delivery! Their ranges feature multiple different bouquets of flowers, chocolates, candles and booze starting from £14. 


Spa Day

Nothing beats a good ol' massage or facial tucked away amongst the luxury of a spa facility. What better way to treat your mum than to give her a day off reality and relax?

Brook Mollington Banastre Hotel & Spa Chester offer breaks from just £54 per person including a treatment of your choice, lunch and full access to the pool, sauna and more. 

Take a look on their website for further information on special offers and how to save 10% on your package...



Not on the Highstreet

The self proclaimed home of personalised gifts is a great place to look if you want to buy a present that comes from the heart and has had a lot of thought put in to it, and won't leave you completley out of pocket in the process.

Starting from mere few quid for a cute gift, why not buy your mum a personalised planter (£10)? Personalised Pearl Necklace (£12)? Or perhaps a personalised scarf (£16)?

As a disclaimer, once I ordered a 'Buy your own star' for my friends' birthday from this website and it brought her to tears. It cost £20 and came in a package with an offical certificate, named star, special date, where it's located in the galaxy and a load of other information. It was so worth the price to see how much it meant to her!

I was reccomended this website by a family friend when I was struggling to think of a gift and i'm happy to say Not on the Highstreet definatley has my vote.

The website is very vast, so you'll be sure to find a perfect gift just in time for Mothers' Day.
