Mother’s Day, (or Mothering Sunday) originated as a religious celebration that takes place on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Back in the Middle Ages it was a day when people who had moved away from their home could return and visit their mother. This year it falls on Sunday March 19th, and in today’s modern times, it’s a day to celebrate all the Mums out there with a loving Mothers Day gift. She could be your Mum, Mother-in-Law, Grandma or Aunt. The female figure in your life that means the very most to you. The one who’s always there for you. Call her anytime day or night and she’ll show up. A shoulder to cry on, the one you tell good news to before anyone else. A Mum is the ultimate Queen, to be showered with love every minute of the day. Because she’s so special, it may feel like an impossibility to find a gift that really expresses the love gratitude you have for your Mum but right here we have rounded up a wonderful selection of gifts. Something that shows how much you love and appreciate everything she does for you. Here’s Mother’s Day the Heart & Home way!

Here’s something nice you can do that will start her day off with a smile. Make breakfast in bed! Keep it simple with fresh juice, a coffee and poached eggs on toast or if you’re feeling a little more adventurous try this Jamie Cullum recipe of poached eggs on avocado and feta toast! What a treat to have a lie-in!

You could also give her an IOU?  I owe you a home cooked meal, or maybe some help in the kitchen? A bit of ironing? Maybe load the dishwasher. Anything that can give her a little break will really be appreciated and doesn’t cost anything but your time! 

But if you’re wondering what gift to buy so Mum can enjoy some well-deserved me-time, then the Ultrasonic Aroma diffuser is the perfect mothers day gift to give. At the touch of a button, not only will it scent any space with divine natural fragrance but the diffuser is wonderful for wellbeing.  The whisper-quiet diffuser brings calm and tranquillity, providing peace and quiet so Mum can have some rest and recuperation, and maybe even get to pick up that book that she keeps promising to read. The aroma diffuser, teamed with our natural essential oils can be so good for mood boosting. Choose from uplifting, grounding, revitalising, or calming oils to suit the need.

Or check out our With Love fragrance – a delight that Mum is sure to love. Floral heaven comes as a beautifully packaged gift for Mum. A Home Scenting Set containing a room spray, reed diffuser and a mini candle set to uplift and inspire, Mum can scent the whole home in three different ways with this subtle fragrance to relax and revitalise. A scent-scape if you like!

Another idea for a Mother’s Day pressie is our mini candles gift set. Three mini candles each featuring three of our new spring fragrances. With Love has floral poppy notes, infused with zesty citrus, and pink amber. Peach Passion has freshly squeezed peach and juicy citrus, paired with delicate florals, a dash of fresh bergamot and a hint of exotic musk. Cotton Blossom offers beautifully balanced florals entwined with soft cotton blossom, white musk, and amber for a clean uplifting fragrance. Made with eco-friendly sustainable soy you can be sure that your gift has green credentials too!

Does she love a cuppa? If so then she’s sure to love this cute tea cup candle. Complete with saucer and our sustainable soy wax. In two fragrance options – one has a zingy citrus fragrance called Lemon Bliss. It features an abundance of sparkling lemon, uplifted with fresh fruity tones alongside creamy vanilla and soft brown sugar. The other fragrance option is With Love. The teacup candles are prettily packaged with a gift tag too! 

Another option is the With Love candle and carousel. If Mum loves a keepsake, then this is the perfect mothers day gift. A spinning carousel sits atop of the candle jar and gently spins poppy charms in the warm candle glow. Our carousels have always been extremely popular so you can give this gorgeous mothers day gift with confidence.

If Mum is a candle connoisseur, then why not try our brand-new Black Vanilla fragrance. It features creamy vanilla infused with a spicy sweetness and tempered with the intriguing fragrance of antiqued leather. With twin wicks that pool quickly and burn evenly alongside our signature sustainable soy wax blend that is kinder to the environment than harsh paraffin wax.

Or why not try a Bamboo candle with a crackling wooden wick. Oud Wood and Geranium offers fresh geranium flowers, gently softened by the intoxicating aroma of rich, resinous oud wood for an earthy cologne-like fragrance. What’s not to love!

If your gift is for someone who prefers a quick spritz then one of our Best-selling room sprays could be an affordable but thoughtful gift to give. White musk on a base of lush bergamot layered with zesty citrus and pepper features in our Cedarwood and White Musk Room Spray and brings instant long-lasting ambience for any room in the house.

If wax melts are her thing then take a look at this Gift of The Year nominated Bamboo wax melt warmer. Heart & Home wax melts have a high % of fragrance. Soy wax melts at a lower temperature than paraffin wax so the melts last longer and with continual fragrance. Wax melts are very popular and we have a large range to choose from. It’s also a good way to try out new scents and discover a firm favourite. 

So, I hope we have given you some fresh inspiration. A good selection of mothers day gift ideas at different price points. Whether it’s a pocket money purchase or something a little more extravagant. Mum will love you for it!
