Mother’s day in the UK already happened on March 31, but most other countries still have about a week to check for mother’s day gifts, buy them and get ’em wrapped real pretty! And I’m glad about that, because I have to admit I haven’t prepped anything yet… And while flowers and a cake are a nice gift too, it does get a bit repetitive. So I spent all morning browsing the internet and collecting mother’s day gift ideas. Let me show you what I’ve hotlisted so far.
I love finding the perfect gift for people, it gives me such a warm, rewarding feeling when they open it and their eyes sparkle with joy. And seeing my list, maybe you get inspired for mother’s day, too!

Mother’s day gifts from Swarovski
1. Vintage Set (USA / UK) | 2. Crystalline Oval Watch (USA / UK) | 3. Sparkling Dance Round Necklace (USA / UK) | 4. Eternal Watch (USA / UK) | 5. Mixed Crystal Pearl Strand (USA / UK) | 6. North Pierced Earrings (USA / UK)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Swarovski! I have a huge collection already and it keeps on growing! I am a sucker for sparkling jewelry, I can’t get enough of it! I’m a bit of a magpie, I suppose… the more sparkle-sparkle, the better!
The items I hotlisted are so pretty, but they’re not too much in-da-face, if you know what I mean. I especially love the simplicity of the vintage set (1), the elegance of the pearl strand (4) and also the unique design of the eternal watch (4). Every single piece on my Swarovski gift list is elegant and sophisticated. They can be worn alone or in a set, during day and in the evenings, for years to come. Just perfect for a mother’s day gift!
Gifts from Amazon
Of course I had to check Amazon for the perfect mother’s day gift as well! I shop a lot on Amazon because they just have (almost) everything!
I started collecting Franz porcelain (9) a few years ago, but it’s difficult to find that brand in stores. I used to buy them in France but that shop stopped selling Franz porcelain… I did find this stunning vase on Amazon though! Their collections are breathtaking!
Books are a fantastic mother’s day gift! There are so many of them, and they entertain for hours, days, weeks! I’ve been a huge Outlander (Diana Gabaldon) (12) fan since the early 2000s and recommend that book to anyone who loves reading, so I just had to put it on my mother’s day gift list as well! The “Help Me!” book (11) is something I came across in a book store not too long ago. I sneaked a peek and it was really funny! The author decided to read (and follow) a new self help book every month, for an entire year. “Help me!” is about what happened to her during that year. On a side note, there’s a kindle (10) version as well, for those who own one (maybe get one for mother’s day?).
With most mothers (probably) being somewhat “generation Queen” and the movie being so fantastic, I know I will be buying this movie for my mother sooner or later, so of course I had to put it on my gift list!
Ted Baker gift list
14. Candle (USA / UK) | 15. Harmony Dial Watch (currently UK only) | 16. Pearl Face Watch (USA / UK) | 17. Home Fragrance Diffuser (currently UK only) | 18. Small tote bag (currently USA only) | 19. Leather Travel Wallet (USA / UK) | 20. Kimono (currently UK only, but USA has a pretty one in nude pink too! | 21. Starlet Stone Cuff (USA has it in turquoise / UK)
I snooped around Ted Baker a bit too and found lots of great items for my mother’s day gift hotlist. My favorites are the tote bag (18) and travel wallet (19) because they combine pretty flowers (that most women love) with something practical for everyday use.
The watches are perfect for day and evening, plus they go with any age, so you(r mother) can wear them year after year!
If you are toying with the idea of buying your mother something to wear, make sure to read up on the best fabrics for summer and winter first. On that note: also worth a read is my guide on how to shop fashion online.
I am not entirely sure yet which pretty gift I will buy for my mother, but I know I have to make a decision soon, because mother’s day is next week already!
