Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day
Experience Days For Mum
For a day to remember there is a host of experience days to enjoy, from chocolate making workshops to jewellery making. But for the adrenaline junkie, skydiving into a wind tunnel, paintballing will provide a welcome break from the duties and money worries. Or for the mum who prefers to take things a little easier, pampering days are plentiful, from a hair and makeup makeover, with a photo shoot, to a day pass at a health spa, including free access to Jacuzzi, steam room, pool and gym.
A special piece of jewellery
Jewellery is often a gift that we think of when it comes to Mother’s Day, a beautiful lasting way to say I love you to our mums and that we care about them. It is something that they can wear every day or just on special occasions depending on the mum’s preference. Something that whenever they see it or hold it in their hands, a wave of memories washes over them as they recall the special day and person who gifted them the item.
A personalised locket is an item of jewellery that will not only be loved by your mum but hold close special photos of loved ones. Allowing her to keep them close to her heart no matter how close or far they are in daily life.

Time to snuggle up and relax
