Mother’s Day is March 27, so there’s still a week or two to get your mum the perfect Mother’s Day gift, whether you’re planning a visit or you want to send her something in the post. If you aim to make a real difference, you might want to consider supporting a Black-owned business this year. We’ve scoured our favourite retailers and gone through the Strategist archives to find gift suggestions for every type of mum — from those who are partial to a gin cocktail to those who are in need of a night in. To make sure that your gift will arrive on time, we’ve added last shipping dates on each item.
For the mum who has tried everything Beauty Pie has to offer
For the mum who drizzles and dunks
For the mum who always says yes to a livener
For the mum who doesn’t drink like she used to
For the mum who always wears her hair up
For the mum who wears her hair natural
For the mum who can never find her keys
For the mum who can spend at least an hour in the bath
For the mum who has a lipstick for every occasion
For the mum with an eight-cups-a-day habit
For the mum who still writes out her shopping list
For the mum who can never say no to a Lindor
For the mum who appreciates ambience
For the mum who just bought her first ficus
For the mum who can’t even keep a snake plant alive
For the mum who doesn’t want much
And finally … something to wrap their gift in
We like this penny-sweets wrapping from Kazvare Made It.
