Mother’s Day 2022 is fast approaching so I have put together a little guide of ideas to treat the Mother Figure in your life, or yourself, whatevs no one is judging here
You’ll notice it is rather booze heavy, this was an entirely unintentional yet happy coincidence…
First up, you really cannot go wrong with a bottle of Champagne, but make it even more special by having it personalised.
Say it with Champers does just that. There are different Champagnes to choose from along with a variety of celebrations and personalisations. I had this personalised for me and my mum – I’m nice, I share!
Currently priced at £40.74 with free 48hr delivery from www.sayitwithchampers.co.uk
Can’t decide between white or red for the special person in your life? Virgin Wines have something for with one of each. Presented in a lovely wooden box with Happy Mothers Day on the front.
Virgin Wines has plenty of other gift boxes for Mother’s Day including all kinds of wine, Champagne, snacks a and more.

For the mum who likes to party, kick start the festivities with an aperitif and some pre mixed cocktails from Bring Me Drink – what an epic name!
Aperol mixed with prosecco has been very popular for a couple of years now, and if you aren’t lucky enough to live with a master cocktail maker (like me) then these pre mixed cocktails are ideal. Just chill the glass and add ice, no muss no fuss! Available in a range of flavors I chose Mojito and Espresso Martini – two of my favourites.
Available from www.bringmedrink.co.uk
Time for another wine, this time a cheeky Pinot Grigiot by Bella Mo in a really lovely box from Sparkling Direct. Sparkling Direct has a huge range of wines, all presented in a gorgeous wooden “Happy Mother’s Day” box with.

Now, I’m not suggesting you use this chiller drink bottle for any of the above but why not! Seriously though this drink bottle from Contigo is fab! Built with Contigo’s unique AUTOSEALTM technology, making them 100% spill-proof, while Contigo’s THERMALOCKTM technology keeps drinks icy cold for 28 hours. The bottle also has a hygienic spout cover, protecting against dirt and germs. Finally, the AUTOSEALTM Chill Couture also offers further convenience with its single-handed operation thanks to a push-button which opens and seals in one click.

Now on to jewellery for Mother’s Day…
My mum, god bless her, has a habit of stopping outside jewellers to admire all the pretty things so I’m hoping she likes this bracelet. Part of The Classics collection from Olivia Burton, with a matching necklace and earrings also available in the collection, as well as other collections and watches.
Pieces from Olivia Burton start at £36, available from Very.co.uk
So I chose this next one for myself! Engravers Guild of London, the personalised gifts company, has launched a new jewellery brand built exclusively around personalisation. The brand, MYRI London, offers a range of personalised necklaces and bracelets which can all be customised with a complimentary bespoke engraving.
There are all sorts of different designs to choose from, I chose this necklace which I have had personalised with the Ls names.
Pieces are priced between £25 and £85 and available from www.myri-personalised.com
The next gift is a perfect gift for mother or daughter
With a meaningful message card included, this square knot ring is the perfect gift for either mom or daughter. It also serves as a reminder that the love between mother and daughter is forever. Perfect for birthday, mothers day and every special occasion.
The mother daughter ring is £28.77 and available from www.storyjewellery.com
If you follow me on Facebook you will know how much of a fan of loungewear I am! Well this set from Pretty Polly is just the cutest. It’s really soft and snuggly but not too hot and has lovely details like the lace panel on the back and the little Pretty Polly badge.
This set is from the Botanical Lace collection and is available in Sage, Dusty Rose and Nightshade. I chose Sage, in reality it is more of a green colour than shown in my photo.
RRP from £22 available from www.prettypolly.co.uk
It might not look like it very often but I am a bit of a beauty product addict. I love this Marine Queen duo from Transformulas which I’ve been using for the last couple of days. A little goes a long way and I’ve found it light enough not to overload my combination skin. Their tag line is “Beauty without surgery” and the Marine Miracle Creme has been called “Botox in a bottle” so here’s hoping!
The Mother’s Day Marine Queen package contains the Marine Miracle Creme and Marine Miracle EyeZone as well as an Eva bag and dust bag.
The Marine Queen Package is worth over £114 and is available exclusively for Mothers Day at just £65 from https://www.
My mum keeps coveting my personalised pen so hopefully this Parker pen and pencil set will keep her happy! Having a personalised pen will certain deter any pen thieves in the office (or home) too.
£34.99 available fromRyman’s
For the person who enjoys art, lettering or, well, highlighting stuff – you know who you are – then Stabilo have the gifts for you!
I’m looking forward to taking some time to try my hand at the hand brush lettering, although I fear I lack the creativity required.
