Not got your mum a Mother’s Day gift yet? Flowers and chocs always go down well – but we’ve got some lovely inspirational Mother’s Day ideas to add that personal touch! Jessops has a whole host of last-minute, inexpensive, personalised presents perfect for Mother’s Day – and you can Click and Collect in store in as little as two hours. These are the gifts that will fill her with joy – and they’re so personal and thoughtful that she’ll never guess you left it so late! Here’s how to make Mother’s Day 2019 one to remember…
A study by Mumsnet last year found that a whopping 90 per cent of mums in the UK hope to get a lie in on Mother’s Day, with more than half hoping they’ll be treated to breakfast in bed. So leave her to slumber, then get out the smoked salmon, break open the buck’s fizz, and put the finishing touch to your breakfast tray with a super-cool vision block (from £4) filled with a treasured photo to make her smile from the moment she wakes up.
How often do you dedicate real quality time to your mum, without rushing or letting yourself be distracted by day-to-day life? Sometimes, small gestures can really tug at the heartstrings. So switch off your phone, block out your diary and spend some real time with her on Mother’s Day. As a token of your appreciation, how about giving her something small and personal, such as a photo fridge magnet (from £2.50) or keyring (from £2.50) containing a treasured family photo – these little thoughts and gestures are all it takes to let your lovely mum know just how much you love her.
We’re all guilty of hoarding photos on our phones and computers, but nothing beats the magic of looking through real prints. So why not surprise your mum with a box of carefully curated photos that show just how much you love her? Choose from childhood snaps, places you’ve visited together, events you’ve attended and special family times you’ve shared – from holidays to family celebrations. The speedy Click and Collect service at Jessops means you can order your prints online and pick them up in as little as two hours. Click and Collect prices start at 22p per print.
Nothing says ‘I love you, Mum’ more than cooking her a surprise meal, so get your bake on! You could recreate a dish from one of her favourite holiday destinations or local restaurants to show you’ve put extra thought into your menu. Set the vibe by decorating the room with her most-loved flowers, compile a playlist of her favourite music, and adorn the table with personalised glass coasters (Click and Collect for £5) depicting happy family moments. It’s guaranteed to be a meal she’ll never forget!
Create a beautiful photo wall canvas for your mum this Mother’s Day, and you’ve instantly made the perfect gift. Choose a stand-out picture that captures one of her favourite moments – a happy family gathering, the first time she held her grandchild, the roses in her garden… any photo that makes her smile deserves to be on show, so it’s your duty to turn it into classy wall art! You could even push the boat out and choose a selection of photos to create a canvas picture gallery: order different sizes to create interest and balance. Jessops Click and Collect canvas prints start at just £25 – and remember, your print will be ready as as little as two hours!
Here’s our favourite idea for Mother’s Day! Once she’s enjoyed her day, and you’ve spoiled her rotten, present her with a lovely framed multi-frame print (Click and Collect from £19.99) featuring a selection of happy family photos. This gift will be a wonderful lasting reminder of your love – not just on Mother’s Day, but all year round!
