MOTHER’S Day is just a week away.
If you aren’t going to be seeing your mum, then consider this your reminder to order a gift today.
Many of us want to spend a bit more on mum this year, but with budgets tight, I wanted to give you some good-value options.
Here are some great and affordable Mother’s Day gifts that you can order or pick up in-store, right now.
KEEP HER SWEET: I love the Giant Cookie Kit that you can make at home. For just £1.69 at Aldi, it contains all the ingredients you need to make a huge white choc chip cookie that you can personalise with pink icing. Just add unsalted butter and a couple of teaspoons of milk. Much cheaper than ordering a personalised Millie’s Cookie, which start at £19.99.
SHE’S A BEAUTY: Boots always has great deals but the Ted Baker pamper set includes a face mask, mini and full-size products plus a mini candle for £12.50 instead of the normal £25 price tag.
PRETTY THINGS: Matalan.co.uk has a really excellent selection of gifts for mums and also grandmothers. Pick up a photo keyring with “Best Mum ever” on it for just £2.45, down from £3.50, or a mug that says “World’s greatest Grandmother” for £2.80, reduced from £4.
FIT FOR A QUEEN: The afternoon tea box from Morrisons is £20 and includes everything that you need for a lovely afternoon tea. This could be a great on-the-day activity for you to enjoy with Mum over a video chat if you don’t live together. Head over to morrisons.com/food-boxes to order yours.
WINE NOT?: Letterbox wine is genius. The flat bottle means that it can be delivered to Mum easily and it’s made from eco-friendly recycled plastic so it won’t smash. You can get yours for £13.99 from prezzybox.com. If you want to see even more gift inspiration, then head over to facebook.com/ thesunsavers to watch my Mother’s Day Shop-along video.
