Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate mums, grans, mother figures and any other female role models in our lives. Of course, there’s no reason we shouldn’t celebrate, thank and appreciate our mum’s every day, but it’s nice to make sure we’re extra appreciative on Mother’s day, especially after a very tough 12 months since the last one!
Of course, it’s not always possible for everyone to spend the special day with their mum, especially this year. But in normal times maybe you’re a mum yourself and your kids (or husband) have planned something special, maybe you’ve moved away from your hometown, or perhaps you simply have work commitments. There are still ways to make sure your mum knows how much you appreciate her on Mother’s Day. Sending a beautiful gift in the post could be just the answer, and Moonpig has so many options. Until now I just associated Moonpig with sending cards, and have sent many a personalised photocard with them over the years but they have a huge range of gifts and flowers too.
I was sent some of Moonpig’s best selling gifts from their Mother’s day selection and they are awesome! I have three Mum’s in my life (the Mothership, a Mother in Law and a Step-Mum) so I know they’re going to be well treated this year! I will also be sending out a card with a family photo on, to show them how much we miss them. A little tip I may not be meant to tell you is that if you set reminders for important dates throughout the year they’ll send you a reminder email the week before with a 20% discount code to use, and there’s an app! It really couldn’t be easier.
Hampers are great for when you can’t quite decide what to treat someone to, as they have a great selection with lots of themes to pick from. This is the Tea & Bubbles hamper, and is full of bubble and sweet treats, but there are so many to choose from including sweets, chocolate, gin and even vegan options.
Ideal for busy mums who might need a little help to ‘wash the day away’ is the This Works detox starter kit. Inside is a full size daily cleanser and detox clay mask to use a couple of times a week. I don’t know about anyone else but I very rarely buy ‘posh’ skincare for myself and just pick up something cheap when I do the supermarket run. So I really love getting gifts like this myself.
A Sanctuary Spa Special Occasion hamper is definitely something that almost any mum would enjoy. A plethora of treats inside for top to toe pampering, all with that unique Sanctuary scent. It includes Body scrub and butter, bath foam and treats for the hands and feet too. In the absence of real spa days this is a perfect solution until we can visit the spas once more!
Moonpig also have a great selection of flowers and plants to choose from, for all occasions not just Mother’s Day. I have really enjoyed having some bunches of Tulips around the house, it’s a wonderful way to brighten up a home and put a smile on someone’s face. These flowers were delivered four days before I took these photos and since then they’ve bloomed and are even more gorgeous. They arrived well packed with some plant food and a care card, so it was easy to get them looking good in a vase.
