Mothers Day: What to get your mum this year?

The one relationship that is always with us is the one we share with our mothers. Our mothers are our guiding force and are the person responsible for making us the person we are today. We don’t realise it at the time but they shape our lives and our personalities and credit should be given to them at any given opportunity.

Mother’s Day is one day of the year when we can pay tribute to these amazing people and we at OneChicMom have pulled together a list of ideas to help you find that perfect gift.

A cookbook from your mum’s favourite celebrity chef

There is a reason why this conventional gift is a firm favourite on Mother’s Day and that is because our mum’s are very good at putting on a good dinner. Now we all love our mums Sunday lunch. A cookbook from her favourite celebrity chef would make the perfect gift. If you want something else to compliment this book get a trendy dinner set or special tableware. In regards to patterns and designs there are now lots available from the high street that will meet the tastes and preferences of every mum.

A CD/Compilation from your mum’s favourite singer

Over the years there have been lots of changes to the gifting market but one gift has stood the test of time and that is music. What better gift than to get your mum something that she can enjoy for a long time so treat her to a music compilation. If you want to touch your mother’s heartstrings why don’t you build a compilation yourself as a thoughtfully compiled CD is a sure way in making this Mother’s Day a special occasion for you both.

A home garden

Greens and flowers inside the home are becoming more prominent than ever before. This is a trend that is growing very fast and not just for homes where garden space is short. The great thing about a home garden is that you can bring the outside inside. Your mother will absolutely love this innovate idea. Not only is it unique but it is also a very useful gift. Some people thought it would be useful to get their mum a shed from EasyShed or somewhere similar to ensure that they can get something really great for the outside so they can enjoy the indoors even more because there isn’t a mess outside to frustrate your mum!

So how do you create these? Use a combination of indoor plants with herbs in a pretty vintage pot. You will want flowers that will grow in the shade and not only will these add a touch of beauty to any home, but the beautiful scent of the flowers will also be a welcome freshness to the home. If your mum has a larger garden, there is no need to make a small home garden. However, it might be a nice idea for you to gift your mum something for her garden. Whether that’s a new plant pot or a portable shed with loft, there are lots of options.

Decorative pieces for the home

Most mum’s like decorative pieces for their homes such as candles, smellies and mirrors, or even unique pieces like those seen in this article. If you are not sure what to get your mum there is nothing wrong is getting her involved in the shopping plans. It would be extra special if you bring your mum to the shopping centre for her to pick a personal decorative piece for her home and then enjoy a piece of cake and a cup of tea at the end of the day.
