Perhaps you're getting ahead of Mother's Day (which falls on March 10th in 2024), or you might simply be in the mood to surprise her with a present she didn't know she needed. Whatever the reason, we know it can be hard to find a gift for the special woman in your life that she doesn't already own, and will actully use.
We're all working with a different budget, so we've divided this guide into sections so you can shop gifts for mum under £25, £50, and £100. A lot of the woman&home team also happen to be mothers, so this gift guide comes to you hand-selected and approved by mums, for mums.
"When it comes to Mother's Day gifting, skincare or fragrance discovery sets are a particular favourite, so I get to test out some of the luxury buys and see what works and what I love without spending a fortune on the large-sized equivalent. Another winner in my family is simple and wearable jewellery pieces that I can wear and cherish forever."
