10 fabulous Mother’s Day gift ideas

The countdown to Mother's Day is on. Breathe deep, we've got gorgeous local buys for cool mamas. Or call it inspiration for yourself. Hint hint!

Slather her with love

What Mum doesn’t always need another bottle of hand cream? I have them dotted all around the house to help soothe my aged claws. This vegan hand lotion from gorgeously colourful Kettering gift shop The Bean Hive smells like kumquat & bourbon vanilla. Yum. Plus it looks cute by the sink.



Sumptuous Scents

Us ladies love a scented candle and when it’s an eco friendly soy wax candle with recyclable and biodegradable packaging then, frankly, it doesn’t get much better. These lovelies from Northampton based Lyss and Vey come in a range of gorgeous fragrances including Dark Honey and Tobacco and Black Plum and Rhubarb and there’ even a special Mothers’ Day gift set.

From £16.99


Mother’s Ruin

Gin is never a bad idea but, if you want to upscale your gifting, how about a Mum and daughter gin making workshop at Silverstone Distillery? You’ll learn all about how gin is made, mixing botanicals and there’s even lunch and gin consumption involved too. Oh, and you’ll get your own personalised bottle to bring home. I’ll drink to that.

From £85


Flore House luxury boutique stays northants

Aaand relax

If your Mum deserves some R&R, how about a restful stay at the beautiful Flore House, a luxury boutique hotel in the heart of the Northants countryside, or perhaps she’d like to book in for one of the fabulous floristry workshops run by owner Georgie.

Gift cards from £50


Nailed it

Spoil your ma with a spot of pampering courtesy of Manor Farm Spa and Clinic in beautiful Lamport, who offer a range of relaxing and beautifying indulgences: treat her (and yourself) to a gel mani, lash tint, waxing, laser hair removal or one of the salon’s deeply luxurious Alumier or Elemis facials and massages.


In a muddle

Mum fancy her self as a bit of a mixologist? Step aside Tom Cruise. How about a Mixology Masterclass with the cocktail connoisseurs from Muddled Lime at the lovely Silverstone Distillery? You’ll learn all about the tools of the trade, ingredients, garnishes and, most importantly, how to mix (and drink) the cocktails. Yum.



Heaven Scent

Hopping Hare‘s highly scented candles and diffusers are made sustainably using bee-friendly rapeseed oil with essential oil blends and seek to evoke memories and mood, with each scent carefully crafted by owner Claire Hopper to uplift, calm, relax and energise, which pretty much sums up everything a Mum needs.

From £15


Caribbean Queen

If a luxury cruise to St Lucia is still off the cards this year (boo), how about bringing a some fruity Caribbean vibes to your Mum instead, with a bottle of Towcester’s very own Audax Rum? Created with gorgeously exotic flavours including hints of lime and mango, its bound to perk up the party.



Queen’s Ransome

What self respecting style-conscious Mum wouldn’t want her walls to be adorned with stunning fine art photography? These high quality prints from Studio Ransome mix fashion and still life with a brilliantly quirky sense of humour and look fabulous in any room of the house.

From £250


Secret Formula

If you’re really looking for a gift that’s a bit different to the usual daffs and choccies vibe, how about a driving experience day at Silverstone Circuit? Get your Ma revving her engine behind the wheel of a Ferrari, Aston Martin or Formula Single Seater at the home of British motorsports. Vrooom!
