Mother’s Day is a fantastic opportunity to show the mothers in your life how much they mean to you. Whether you’re purchasing a gift for your own mother or mother-in-law, or you’re planning to buy a gift for your partner on behalf of your little one, there are a multitude of options that will shower any mum with affection and love on their special day.
Here at Poppie & George, we’ve come up with a range of luxurious gifts and ideas that all mums are sure to love on their big day.
Why not whisk the special mother in your life away for an exciting experience day? There are a plethora of options available; you could book an exclusive meal at the top of The Shard, plan a pampering spa day, or even buy a place on an exclusive workshop (from cooking and cocktail-making to make-up artistry and flower-arranging). Hot-air balloon rides, glamping experiences and trips to the opera are also wonderful options.
You can’t go wrong with jewellery as a gift for any occasion. If you’re purchasing jewellery as a gift for Mother’s Day, why not make it something they could hand down through the generations? Charm bracelets are popular for this purpose, as are necklaces and brooches. Not only will the special mother get to wear it with pride for the rest of her life, she’ll also have a sentimental heirloom to pass on to her sons or daughters.
From Harrods to Fortnum & Mason, all of the top luxury stores offer a Mother’s Day hamper that is sure to make any woman feel incredibly special and appreciated. These include all of the traditional gifts – candles, chocolates, champagne – as well as a few interesting treats.
We’re not talking about a book of Nigella’s most famous recipes – we’re talking about a blank recipe book, which the lucky mother can fill with her own creations, from her beloved banoffee pie to her wonderful risotto. For the mum who spends lots of time in the kitchen whipping up delicious meals and desserts, this makes a fantastic gift.
Choose a high-quality brand like Smythson or Moleskine and have it personalised to make it even more special. Once it’s full, this can also be handed down to the next generation, keeping mum’s tasty recipes in the family.
This interesting option is fantastic for creating a gift with real sentimental value. Take an existing item with lots of meaning, and turn it into a piece of art or a beautiful keepsake. Baby’s first shoes, for example, can be positioned in a beautiful frame and kept forever. The same goes for christening dresses, dribble bibs or some lace from an old wedding gown.
Perhaps the mum in question has an old piece of costume jewellery that she wants to keep but doesn’t necessarily wear. With her permission, of course, have it re-purposed into something much more up-to-date, keeping the vital components and breathing new life into the vintage piece. These thoughtful and meaningful gifts make for a fantastic Mother’s Day, with the recipient feeling truly cherished.

To help ensure your gown is protected and remains in tip-top condition, we’ve revealed the steps you need to take in maintaining your baby’s cherished christening gown.

Adding a new baby to the family is an exciting time, especially as you’ve done it all the first time around. Knowing to expect sleepless nights and multiple nappy changes are simple, but it can also feel like a daunting prospect when you begin to think about the other small people in your life.
With worries about the changes to the daily dynamic of the family, and fears of how prospective siblings are going to take the new arrival, preparation for a second baby is less about the technicalities of pregnancy, and more about preparing the family.
So, as Prince George and Princess Charlotte welcome a baby brother, we’ve shared our tips for preparing siblings for that new baby to ensure there’s a warm and fuzzy feeling for everyone.
