10 gift ideas for Mother's Day
Whether she’s a music lover, a coffee connoisseur or a style-obsessive, your mum is sure to love one of these great gift ideas…
1. For the mum who always likes to look her best
The high-tech and futurist-looking Dyson Supersonic hairdryer is perfect for those mums who like to keep their crowning glory in super-sleek condition.
For that just-stepped-out-of-the-salon look it comes with three accessories – a smoothing nozzle, concentrator and diffusor – all of which magnetically attach for ease of use.
This hairdryer cares for hair too. Using intelligent heat control, the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer ensures the hair isn’t exposed to damaging levels of heat for shinier, healthier locks.
2. For the fashionista
If you’re after something stylish and practical for mum then the Michael Kors Access Sofie smart watch is a great option.
With its rose gold finish and stylish AMOLED display, it’s the perfect gift for the fashion-conscious.
But it doesn’t just look good – it’s smart too. This clever watch can receive smartphone notifications such as calls and messages, give you a weather update or show directions with built-in Google Assistant. You can also monitor daily activity with Google Fit!
3. For the mum you can never get hold of
Can you never reach your mum because she’s always forgetting charge her phone? Then why not get her a Goji Portable Power Bank.
Sleek and slimline, it fits neatly into a handbag or pocket and holds enough charge so that mum can top up her phone or tablet when out and about.
Or, make sure mum never loses her phone again with the stylish Tile tracker. If mum can’t find it you know it’s lost - sync the white and gold widget to her mobile and she can ring it loudly, even if it’s on silent.
She can even attach it to her keys or slip it in her wallet so if they get lost, she can find them using the app on her smartphone.
4. For the mum who likes to live healthy
If she likes to eat healthy and live well, you can’t go wrong with the NutriBullet Pro 900.
With less aeration than most blenders on the market, it produces a purer consistency and copes with seeds, stems and tough skins easily.
She’ll be able to whip up nutritionally-balanced smoothies or super-food soups with ease. It also comes with a handy Pocket Nutrionist that’s packed with handy healthy recipes!
5. For the coffee connoisseur
Does your mum love a cup of freshly brewed coffee? Then why not treat her to a coffee machine that lets her enjoy barista-style results at home.
Mum would like the Tassimo by Bosch Suny coffee machine. Choose from one of the 36 pods – including varieties from the likes of Kenco, Costa and Caffe Crema – and the machine does the rest.
There are even tea and hot chocolate options for non-coffee drinkers. Its compact size and choice of colour options make it perfect for any kitchen.
Or how about the Nespresso by Krups VertuoPlus? This large capacity machine holds 1.7 litres of water, perfect for mums who like to entertain.
It has a fast water heating system – so she won’t have to hang around for her morning brew – and delivers delicious coffee at the touch of a button.
6. For the music-loving mum
Whether your mum likes to croon to old-school classics or is up with the latest music trends, she won’t be disappointed with a portable speaker or radio.
The Akai Portable Analogue Retro Radio is perfect for lazy mornings reading the paper in the kitchen. With its vintage styling and in a choice of three colours – red, black and cream – it will fit effortlessly into any space.
It’s both mains and battery powered and has a convenient carry handle, so mum can move it around the house or take it out into the garden.
7. For the tech-savvy mum
If your mum likes to keep on top of the latest and greatest gadgets then check out the Amazon Echo Spot. It not only gives her hands-free access to all her favourite tunes, but it can keep her updated on the weather, control her smart home tech and even order a pizza.
To top it all off its neat display screen can be used for making video calls or as a digital picture frame.
8. For the mum who likes to capture the moment
Does your mum love to whip out the camera at any opportunity, but then never do anything with her digital pictures? You could treat her to a camera that instantly prints photos out!
With its compact size and retro styling, the Fujifilm Instax mini 9 camera produces credit card sized polaroids in an instant – letting her capture and share those candid moments.
9. For the mum who likes to steal your photos
Social media is a great way of sharing memories and photos, but sometimes there is no substitute for a printed picture.
As well as instant printing, you could treat mum to a HP Sprocket printer and she can take older pictures from social media to treasure forever.
Small enough to slip into a handbag, the Sprocket connects with your smartphone or tablet and transforms social media photos into colourful prints. You can even add text, borders or amusing emojis.
10. For the mum who deserves it all
Why not treat her to something money can’t buy? A day off from the chores, dinner cooked for her or a picnic in the park with the people she loves most – all are sure-fired ways to make her feel loved this Mother’s Day.
