Mothers Day Gift Guide 2016


Here is your week and a half reminder for Mothers Day everyone! This year it is on Sunday 6th March, for some reason it really seems to have crept up on me this year. In fact, the only reason I knew it was coming up was because I saw it on a sign outside of a pub!

I have put together a gift guide for all those dads, husbands and kids to get some inspiration for this Mothers Day. I hope you like it, everything is very affordable and what I would also buy for my Mum or Mummy friends or myself! There are some really pretty things on it. All the links and prices are below.



  1. Follow Your Dreams Pyjamas – Pj’s are usually a winner for us Mums but I thought these ones from Matalan were extra cute! They are only £10 too so a bargain!
  2. Blue Handbag – When I was having a mooch round the Matalan website this bag caught my eye. I love the colour of it and it looks big enough to fit all sorts of Mummy rubbish in!! Again a real bargain at £18.
  3. Motherhood Jumper – I love this jumper; nice and practical but also a bit cheeky! It is from one of my favourite shops, Not on the High Street and is £29. I would love this!
  4. Prosecco & Strawberry Lip Balm – I don’t think you could go wrong with this cute little gift from Not on the High Street, looks very yummy and so pretty. It is only £6.99!
  5. Pastel Candle Pots – I thought these candle holders were so cute! Love love love the colours. They are £8 for the 3 from R Home Gifts, an online shop I recently discovered through Instagram. They have some lovely, really affordable gifts.
  6. Pastel Flower Jug – This is quite a personal choice in a way as I know my Mum would love this jug, however I figured if my Mum would like it then lots of other Mums probably would too. This jug is £11.99 and also from R Home Gifts.
  7. Crocs Sienna Shoes – I wrote a post a while ago about Crocs and why you shouldn’t judge them. They do some lovely shoes and they don’t always have to be clog style!! Super comfy too! These Sienna flats are £25.99.
  8. I’d Rather Be Sipping Champagne Travel Mug – If you didn’t already know I possibly Poundland’s biggest fan! This is why. They have such nice gifts. If money is a bit tight then you can still get something lovely. I would love this travel mug. Perfect for work or keeping that cup of tea warm! (Obviously it is a pound!)
  9. Mum Mug – Another Poundland bargain. We all love a mug and this super simple and lovely.

I hope you enjoyed this gift guide and it has given you a bit of inspiration. Let me know if you get anything from the list.

Have a lovely Mothers Day.


This is not a sponsored post, I just really like all these things! Prices were checked on the day of publishing but may change in the future.

    Mothers Day is so early this year, I think it’s because Easter is early. I’m not sure why it changes date year after year, I should really find out. This list is great, nothing on here is too expensive either. I love the idea of the travel mug this would come in handy on my walks trying to get little one to sleep. Hope you have a great Mothers Day. Claire x #PickNMix
