Looking for a gift for mum that is a little bit different? Of course, mums love flowers, books, chocolate; and they love nothing more than a handmade card, made with lashings of love and a sprinkle of glitter.
But sometimes, it is fun to get an unusual gift for mum. Something that she will remember forever – for all the right reasons. Here are some of our favourite different gifts for her:
Skydiving, F1 driving, hot air balloon, salsa classes; an experience that she will enjoy is something that she will remember for ever. If you want to play it safe you could choose theatre tickets or a spa day, but if you are looking for an unusual present for mum, go a bit crazy! From beekeeping to gin making, chocolate tasting to foraging, you are sure to find a course or experience that will leave her excited, exhilarated and smiling.
A Sweet Treat
Nine times out of ten, mums get the family’s leftovers. The half-eaten sandwich, the broken biscuit; the cake that nobody else wanted. The most unusual gift for her that you can get for your mum is a treat that is totally out of bounds for everyone else! Instead of giving her a box of chocolates and watching as the whole family dives in, get something niche and indulgent that is exclusively for her (you can always get a back-up box of chocolates or pack of biscuits for the rest of the family). This may sound like a simple thing, but enjoying an indulgent treat that is there when you want it really is a gift for most mums! There are some great personalised chocolates and biscuits available; look for artisan companies for something truly special.
Without being too cliché, most mums love a little bit of sparkle, particularly if it has meaning. There is a dazzling array of personalised jewellery to choose from, from fingerprint pendants to bespoke coins, from engraved bangles to birthstone rings. Every piece is totally unique, because it is personalised to represent your family. When it comes to personalised jewellery for mum, the more meaningful, the better. This family birthstone spinning universe pendant is packed with symbolism and looks unique and stylish, too; the perfect gift to mark a special occasion.
If you are looking for something a little bit different for your mum, or your children’s mum, you clearly think she is special. Lots of children in the world aren’t as lucky as you, or your children. Sponsorship is a great way of showing the woman in your life how much you love her, by improving the life of someone else. There are lots of child sponsorship opportunities available, some of which allow you to build a lasting relationship with a child elsewhere in the world? Not into child sponsorship? Through various wildlife preservation organisations and zoos, you can sponsor a puppy, elephant, dolphin, lion; you can even sponsor a tree!
Finding the right gift can be a challenge. But if it is thoughtful, personal and a little bit different, it is guaranteed to be a winner.
