Mother's Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is all over for another year and it’s time to start thinking about what we can get our mums as the perfect gift to say thank you for all that they do for us. It might feel like nothing we could ever choose would be good enough for her, but don’t panic. Whether she’s vegetarian, vegan or just trying to be a bit more eco-friendly, we hope the gift guide will give you some ideas.

Vegan Mother’s Day Gift Idea

If your mum is a chocolate fiend, don’t panic, you can still buy her a lovely box of chocolates. Vegan Tuckbox have a box that they call the “chocoholic box” you can order as a single purchase box or go for the gift that keeps on giving and sign up to a subscription.

Your mum might rather have something non-edible for her gift. If bathing and skin care are more her thing then try Bubble Off! products, they are all handmade in the UK, vegan, and cruelty free. Some of the packaging is adorable too.

Of course, we just can’t write this gift guide without mentioning our very own Sage and Stars luxury silk bathrobes. They’re 100% vegan and are perfect for an extra special gift, even if we do say so ourselves. Our Celaeno Robe in blush rose colour is silky soft to wear and gives that wow factor.

Plastic-free Mother’s Day Gift

If the social media buzz is anything to go by, lots of people are trying to do as much as they can to reduce their plastic usage, and if you mum is no exception there are lots of things you could buy to help her along the way.

A reusable coffee cup, like these glass ones from KeepCup come in a range of sizes and colours and stop you needing to get a disposable take-out cup every time you grab a coffee on the go.

Of course, not everyone will like the idea of carrying something so fragile in their bag, so you could also buy one that is made from bamboo fibres like the ones sold by Ecoffeecup

Ways to make your quality time together more special

Afternoon Tea

Many of us probably have some pretty cringe memories of trying our best to make our mums breakfast in bed for her special day, only to end up burning the toast to a crisp and making a huge mess in the kitchen that she had to clean up later, so why not try and make up for some of that by making her something extra special at home (and doing the washing up too, of course). As nice as it can be for both of you to go out for food, it can be hard to book a table anywhere.

The Wallflower Kitchen blog has a guide of how to make a vegan afternoon tea if you fancy giving that a go. You can always adapt it to what you both like, or just use it as inspiration. 

Spa Breaks

Any excuse for a spa break is a good excuse for a spa break in our opinion and Mother’s Day is definitely not an exception! Hand Picked Hotels list spas on their website that use ethically-sourced products.

Lush also have spas in some of their stores and offer a range of treatments that can be tailored to vegans if desired. 

We hope we’ve managed to give you some inspiration with this. What are you going to get your mum this year? Let us know in the comments!
