Send a Mother's Day gift with Interparcel

Interparcel's Gift Guide for Mother's Day 2022

15th March 2022, 10:10am in Lifestyle by Amy Newham

She's there for you with a cup of tea when you visit. She gives you a call to ask about your day. She picks you up from the train station when you've lost your car keys, and she offers you a hug when you're feeling a little low. Now it's time she gets the recognition she deserves this Mother's Day.

In the UK, Mothering Sunday 2022 falls on 27th March and honours mothers and mother figures. Mothering Sunday began as a church tradition and the date changes each year based on the lunar calendar, similar to Lent or Easter.

Whether the special lady in your life is your Mum, Step Mum, Nan or Auntie, show how much you appreciate them by sending a gift. We've compiled a list of ideas to help you get started.

Is it her first Mother's Day?

First Mother's Day gifts

Every Mother's Day is special, but the first one is even that extra bit more, so why don't you remind her of how amazing she is. If you're looking for a present for a mum on Mother's Day, global marketplace Etsy is home to everything handmade or crafty and many independent sellers sell beautiful gifts for first-time mums. Items include custom engraved necklaces, foil handprint and footprints and personalised photo frames.

Does she prefer the outdoors?

Since lockdown, more people want to be outside than ever (despite the unpredictable British weather), so why not treat Mum to an adventure she'll never forget?

Buyagift and Virgin Experience Days offer a range of fantastic experiences from spa getaways, West End shows and even more unique trips like walking pygmy goats!?

For an added touch, you could incorporate the voucher into a custom 'experience box' with items she may need for the trip. For example, a hot air balloon experience would pair great with a scarf and a photo frame so she can capture a memory of the day. You can send your gift with one of our speedy services and have it all collected from your door.

Does she enjoy her home comforts?

Mother's Day Afternoon Tea

If your mum is a PJs and TV kind of lady, she might prefer spending Mother's Day in the comfort of her home. So, why don't you host your mum an afternoon tea?

Lemon sponge cake is always a firm favourite, especially with some afternoon tea sandwiches and buck's fizz. If you're not such a dab hand at baking, there are also afternoon tea kits you can buy to be delivered straight to your door- all freshly prepared and ready to be scoffed!

Is she sentimental?

Handmade photo albums or scrapbooks are sure to bring a smile to her face (and one up on your siblings). Pinterest is full of layout ideas and pattern inspiration so you can let your creativity run wild. For example, you could include postcards from family holidays, ticket stubs from day trips out, photos of her children and grandchildren, and pressed flowers.

If you are sending something precious like a photo album, you might want to opt for an Express service like DX Express so the memories of you both together can get there even faster. If you're sending fragile items then pay extra care to the packaging.

Still stuck for ideas?

Mother's Day Competition

If you're still unsure, why not enter our Mother's Day competition for the chance to win our fabulous prize. Treat you and your mum to the taste of Mediterranean sunshine with a selection of fine wines, Italian appetisers and homemade tiramisu at Veeno. With 9 locations across the UK, a luxurious wine tasting experience is the perfect treat for you both to enjoy together!

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is like and share our post with #interparcel on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. T&Cs apply. The competition ends 12 pm on 23/03/22. The winner will be selected at random and will be contacted once the prize draw has closed.

Please remember!

Whatever you decide to buy and send your mum this Mother's Day, you must ensure it's not listed as a Prohibited or Restricted item. Otherwise, you will have quite a bit of explaining to do come 27th March!
