The best Mother’s Day gifts aren't necessarily expensive - the perfect pressie reminds your mum just how much you appreciate her. 

This year, Mother's Day falls on Sunday 10 March so whether you’re buying a gift for your mum, dropping hints for your kids, or reminding your partner to sort out a pressie for your mother-in-law, you've still got plenty of time to sort it.

Unlike choosing the best gifts for a new mum or shopping for the best teacher gifts, picking the perfect Mother's Day pressie is easy since most of us have a pretty good idea of what our mums love - and what they loathe. But if you're not sure what to get, play it safe by asking her what she'd most like for Mother's Day. There's no point treating her to a Mother's Day Tea Hamper, for example, if what she'd really love is a luxury spa day with you for company. 

This article brings you our edit of the very best Mother’s Day gifts for 2024 that are sure to bring a smile to your mum’s face. You'll find a selection of items at a range of different prices so there's something to appeal to every kind of mums, from those who love to relax and be pampered to those who are always on the move.

What's a good Mother's Day gift?

Anything that makes a mum feel special. For some mothers, that's as simple as sending her a bunch of flowers. (Make sure to ask her what her favourite flower is and find out if there are any that she's not keen on.) Other mums love thoughtful trinkets that they can treasure like an item of personalised jewellery. And some mums are all about the practicalities of life, and appreciate nothing better than a useful gift like a new purse, notebook, or make-up bag.  

If you're still not sure what will make the best Mother's Day gift, you might want to consider the best flower delivery services instead. And then have a browse of 85 Mother's Day quotes and messages to write in your card.
