Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Less

Let us help you spoil mum, no matter what your budget is


Mother’s Day 2023 is just around the corner! No matter your age, Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show your mum how much she’s loved and appreciated, and you don’t have to break the bank to do so.

Whether you’re celebrating your mum, step-mum, grandma, or another special mother figure in your life, we’re sure you’ll agree that they deserve the best of everything life can offer. With that in mind, we’ve popped together a list of our favourite budget-conscious Mother’s Day buys that make a lovely change from the classic flowers and chocolates.



When is Mother’s Day 2023?

In 2023, Mother’s Day is on Sunday March 19th in the UK.

It is always on the fourth Sunday of Lent.


Why do we celebrate Mother’s Day?

Mother’s Day is the day that we celebrate mums across the UK for all the wonderful things they do. It is celebrated differently in every family, but the idea is to express the love and respect that you have for your mum. This could be through taking her out for a nice dinner, spoiling her with her favourite presents, or writing a touching note.

You can't go wrong with something nice-smelling, whether it's a perfume or an oil burner. Fill the air with a delightful aroma that will bring a smile to her face.

Ideal for the bathroom, bedroom, or lounge area (but don't leave unattended!) - oil burners slowly release the smell of whichever oil or wax melt is placed in them. This white oil burner will fit in with any home décor. Some scents that we recommend include Apple & Pear, Cookie & Spice, and Rose & Geranium (these come in beautiful packaging too, perfect for gifting).
