With Mother’s Day fast approaching, it’s time for any last-minute shoppers out there to get your thinking caps on and find your mum a little something to show your appreciation without breaking the bank.

Gift ideas

Aromatherapy set

This relaxing beauty and fragrance gift set from aromatherapy company Tisserand is guaranteed to help your mum find some inner peace after a busy weekend. 

Containing two vegan-friendly bath and body oils made with a soothing blend of lavender, bergamot and patchouli, it’s the perfect gift for mums who don’t put their feet up often enough.

Crackling scented candle

With their tranquil aromas and comforting glow, there’s a reason most mums love a good candle and this one is an absolute beauty.

Presented with a stylish hourglass design, this linen-scented candle has a burn time of up to 130 hours, while its wick crackles as it burns, so your mum will feel as though she’s sitting next to a real fire.

RHS gardening book

Greenfingered mums across the UK are chomping at the bit to get back into their gardens now spring is nearly here, so why not help yours make her outdoor space the best it can be with this month-by-month gardening guide?

Filled with tips and advice from gardening experts, as well as numerous illustrative images, the book will make your mum’s garden the envy of her neighbours all year round.

Gin glasses

Mums love gin, almost without exception. It’s just one of those things.

If your mum falls into the ‘gin lover’ category, she’ll adore this cocktail glass gift set, which includes two elegant gin glasses, a recipe book, a rose gold cocktail spoon and a double-sided measuring cup. At just over £20, it’s likely to sell out fast, so get ordering!

Days out

Whitby Abbey

If your mum loves a good walk, why not take her to Whitby Abbey?

Perfect for short or long walks, Whitby offers views of the famous, Dracula-inspiring abbey, beautiful coastlines, a wide range of pubs and cafes and, of course, the chance to eat some of the best fish and chips the UK has to offer.

Brimham Rocks

For mums that love the great outdoors, there aren’t many better places to visit this Mother’s Day than Brimham Rocks.

Located in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty a few miles outside of Harrogate, Brimham Rocks offers a huge array of wildlife, dramatic moorland views and scenic strolls, all among an amazing collection of natural rock formations that are the ideal spot for picnickers.


Brasserie Blanc

Boasting a menu full of local, seasonal produce and a sensational riverfront location inside a converted mill, Brasserie Blanc is one of the best, most reasonably priced French restaurants around and a great option for Mother’s Day.

Although the menu includes French classics like souffles and escargots, along with a good selection of other dishes, Sundays are for roasts and the grass-fed roast beef with cauliflower cheese, bottomless roast potatoes and gravy is sure to put a smile on the faces of even the most hard-to-please mums. Book a table here.


If any restaurant anywhere screams ‘bring your mum here for Mother’s Day’ louder than Bettys, we’ve yet to hear it!

Famous for its Fat Rascals, afternoon teas, fish and chips, huge selection of cakes and pâtisseries, Bettys is one of Yorkshire’s most beloved chains. Your mum will love you forever if you surprise her with a trip to one of its restaurants in York or Harrogate.
