MOTHER’S DAY PRESENT – SORTED

It’s that time of year again, to thank the woman who gave you life with a present that won’t break the cringe-o-meter or your bank balance. Turn the cliché s on their head with our 2018 Mother’s Day gift guide.

STEMLESS FOUNTAIN AERATING WINE GLASS

No need for cumbersome decanters, these elegantly designed glasses will automatically release the full potential of your mum’s wine when pouring directly into the glass.

“THANKS FOR PUTTING UP WITH MY SHIT” CHOCOLATE

Gratitude with attitude in this chocolate bar. Tell her how much you care for her with a pink, shimmering chocolate bar underneath all the profanities. A sweary, chocolatey token of your appreciation.

SMART HERB GARDEN

Tech for plants – bring momma’s kitchen into the 21st century with Click & Grow’s Smart Herb Garden. It features smart soil which creates an ideal environment for plants growing indoors. It also has an LED light above it so the plants can thrive even without sunlight, and if that’s not enough there are sensors to detect when the plant needs more water or nutrients.

DESIGN YOUR OWN PERFUME

This is an awesome idea for mums who love their perfumes, and even better for the son who has no idea about them. Choose a location, and your mum can go along to learn all about the different scents, pick her favourites and come out with a truly personal, customised perfume.

PERFUMED NECKLACE

Carrying on with the perfume idea, this necklace serves as both jewellery and perfume. So it’s basically the perfect gift for any special woman in your life. In a choice of different patterns and colours, the pendant is a cage design which holds a specially designed ‘perfume diamond’. Spray any perfume on this diamond and it will hold it for up to three weeks, meaning your mum can save her perfume and wear her new necklace all at once.

AUKEY ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER

Bring the spa home with this essential oil diffuser, helping your mum to fully relax. Not only will it diffuse that spa smell around her home, it also acts as a humidifier, a bedside lamp and an ir purifier, so it’s basically four presents in one.

BEDSIDE SMARTPHONE VASE

Mix the modern and the traditional with the bedside smartphone vase this mother’s day. She can keep her phone cord tucked neatly underneath so she can charge her phone and admire the freshly cut flowers you’ve bought her. Obviously. Anyway, with or without the flowers, this bloom box is bound to brighten up her mother’s day.

NIX DIGITAL PHOTO FRAME

For the sentimental mum who treasures pictures, this photo frame is the perfect way to save space in the home. Cycling through pictures which are loaded through a USB drive, this photo frame is the more eco friendly of the designs, as it has a motion sensor which switches on and off as people enter or exit the room to save power.

NAME A STAR GIFT SET

A thoughtful gift that will give your mum something to gush to her friends about. The name a star gift set does what it says on the tin, and allows you to name a star in the nights sky. Apparently the star you name will keep that name forever. Quite how you can tell it’s not a complete con we’re not sure, but it’s a lovely thought for the most important woman in your life all the same.

FURBO TREAT TOSSING DOG CAMERA

If your mum has a furry child as well as you, this is the perfect present. When she’s out she can check in on her pup, and even give out treats using the app from her phone – genius!
