With Mother’s Day approaching on Sunday 27th March, have you thought about how to celebrate the mother figure in your life? It’s easy to default to buying a bouquet of pink carnations and a box of champagne truffles every year. And while chocolate and flowers rarely go down badly, there is something extra special about a Mother’s Day gift that says, I see you and I want to celebrate what makes you so amazing. 

This year, let’s think outside of the obvious gifts for her—forget old gifting habits, forget her age or her obvious hobbies (no gardener needs another pair of gloves) Instead, consider her inner life, her spirit, and what she brings to your family. 

Is she the glue that keeps you together or the spark that injects joy into every day? Spot your loved one’s true self and discover the most thoughtful mother’s day gifts that she will love to receive, this year at Boots.

She is... The glue

Every group needs one of these. She’s caring and loyal but most of all she’s rigorously organised. The glue remembers every anniversary and everyone’s birthday (including the dog). She planned the fortnightly Zoom quiz through lockdowns 1,2 and 3 and now holds everyone accountable to Sunday lunch, takes group photos at the table, then actually remembers to print them afterwards. 

She will love… something heartfelt 


Treat Republic Personalised Rings Of Love Necklace

This beautiful rose gold necklace can be engraved with three names, dates, or messages of your choice.


Emma Hardie Amazing Face Luxury Skin Indulgence Gift Set

Give her the gift of ‘me time’ with this facial in a box, including a luxury cleansing ritual, facial oil, and candle. 

She is... The spark

You can sense the spark’s infectious energy before you see her, not least because her laugh travels across the room, through walls, and into the house next door. Her upbeat attitude somehow made a stormy camping trip to Swansea one of the best holidays you’ve ever been on, and she can always be relied upon to crack a snort-inducing joke and help you gain perspective on everyday stress. 

She will love… something joyful 


Soap & Glory A Blooming Glorious Collection

Uplifting citrus and flower-scented body treats from the cheekiest brand in beauty, plus a radiance-boosting mask.


Treat Republic Personalised Photo Cube Keepsake Box

Turn happy memories into a high-quality oak keepsake box, engraved with a personal message to make her smile. 

She is... The wave

She’s the first person you call in a crisis because talking to her is like stepping into a warm, gently-lapping ocean. She doesn’t sweat the small stuff, and will helpfully point out when you’ve given a bit too much energy to the fact that someone pinched your parking space. She’s strong, calm, and refreshingly no-nonsense with her boundaries—just don’t call her Sunday afternoons, that’s box-set-in-the-bath time.

She will love… something grounding


Aromatherapy Associates The Forest Therapy Collection

This luxe set is inspired by nature and includes a wellness mist, bath & shower oil plus pure aromatherapy oils. 


Treat Republic Personalised Botanical Mother's Day Tea Box

Keep her in high-end Pukka teas to accompany all your deep and meaningful conversations with this customisable pine keepsake box. 

She is... The dart

There is a powerful momentum to this mother figure, and she takes everyone she loves along for the ride. The dart is always up for trying new experiences and collecting memories with those she loves, be it hiking a munro or making adventurous menu choices when you order a takeaway. If you are stuck in a rut she will gently nudge you out of it, and when things don’t go well, it’s all “copy for the autobiography.” 

She will love… something exciting


Lancome La Vie Est Belle EDP Mother's Day Limited Edition Set

The timelessly evocative Parisian scent plus adventure-ready travel-sized fragrance rollerball, body lotion, and mascara.
