For many of us, the pandemic may have meant that we’ve not seen as much as our dear mums as we would have liked over the past few years. So with that in mind, for Mother’s Day 2022 there’s never been a better time to show your mum – biological or otherwise – that you love and appreciate her.

Mother’s Day this year falls on Sunday March 27 in the UK, so now’s the time to get thinking about what you want to gift the special lady in your life.

Thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts from older children


Dewdrop butterfly nest, £14.24, Amazon


This really does fall into the category of the best Mother’s Day gift for the mum who has everything! If she has a garden and loves wildlife she’ll love this dewdrop-shaped butterfly nest. Hang in a sunny spot away from wind close to plants which butterflies and other pollinated insects are attracted to. You can also unscrew the back and add in some banana skin to make the nest extra appealing.


Engraved Pomegranate Noir cologne, from £54, Jo Malone


An engraved Jo Malone cologne bottle will go down a treat, we’re sure of it. Choose a decadent Jo Malone fragrance for your mum and receive complementary engraving on the bottle itself or lid. Make it personal with a special message, initials or meaningful date.

Mom, I Wrote a Book About You, £9.23, Amazon


There are several fill-them-in, tribute books available, but this hardcover version is one of the nicest we’ve seen.

If you want a thoughtful gift for Mother’s Day then look no further – the Amazon reviews section is full of customers saying how it made their mums cry!


Online cake baking and decorating course, was £175 now from £8, Wowcher

It covers everything from baking a cake to in-depth skills including delicate cupcakes and multi-tiered cakes and the fundamentals of decoration, including borders and decorations, leaves and flowers, lettering and writing, special effects, figure piping, working with marzipan and gum paste, and more.
