Free Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mum deserves the best, but with the cost of living affecting households across the UK, we know how tough times are right now. So, we’ve put together a few ideas on how you can make her feel special even if you’re on a budget.

Handmade Cards

There’s nothing better than receiving a handmade card from your children. Set up the kids with their craft supplies and let them create something beautiful for her. It’s a lot more thoughtful and better than shop-bought ones. You can do handprint and footprint cards for babies to get involved too.

Printable Coupon Book

Get the kids to create coupons to gift to Mum that she can cash in anytime she’d like. You can offer anything like free hugs for Mum anytime, a movie night of her choice, a family day of her choice, or a kid-free day to spend as she chooses. You can go simple, or be more creative with the ideas.

Breakfast in Bed

Kids might need help with this one! Make her favourite breakfast and deliver it to her in bed. A tray with a big mug of tea, coffee or orange juice will make her feel loved and spoiled. Make sure you’ve got all the supplies and get the kids involved by putting some flowers on the tray and their handmade cards.

DIY Spa Day

Create your own spa at home to give her that spa experience without leaving the house. Run her a relaxing bath, pour her a glass of her favourite drink with snacks, music or even a book she’s been wanting to read. You can also treat her to a face mask so she can really relax and feel like she’s had a spa treatment.

Reasons I Love You Jar

This one is self-explanatory. Get an empty jar and fill it with as many reasons as you can think of. It could be something as simple as ‘because you make the best pancakes’ or something really unique or silly that only she does.
