On the hunt for a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift? No matter if your mother-figure likes to bake, enjoys spending time outdoors or loves a DIY project, we have everything you need to make this Mother’s Day one to remember. 

Whether you’re celebrating your mum or just want to thank someone who’s been there for you this year, at Homebase we believe in celebrating parenthood in all forms. Show them how much you care and find the perfect special gift with the help of our Top 10 Mother’s Day gift ideas.  


Gifts for outdoor lovers  

Is your mother a green-fingered goddess? Then she’ll be sure to love some new bulbs or vegetable seeds. Paired with a new plant pot or set of pruners, you can create the perfect gift bundle for an outdoor lover. Not only will this make for an ideal gift, but it will also make for a fun activity to do together on Mother’s Day.

Baking gifts 

For the mum who loves to bake, kit her out with a new bakeware set, scales, icing set and measuring cups. Pick up the baking ingredients for your favourite recipe that you love to make together and create a personalised gift basket for an extra special touch.  

Arts and crafts  

Whether your mother-figure paints to unwind, or often gets stuck into DIY projects on the weekend -we’ve got you covered. Refresh her paint brush supply, pick up some furniture paint for her next upcycling project or encourage her DIY desires with a new tool box

Gadget gifts   

Does your mum love keeping up with the latest tech trends? If so, set her up with her own home-automation system. Colour changing light bulbs and LED strip lights that can be controlled via voice recognition are perfecting for creating an immersive lighting scene in any room.  

Or if she’s a fan of tech in the kitchen, a slow cooker is a great way to give the gift of hassle-free meals.   

Help her unwind 

Being a mum can be hard work, and so sometimes the best Mother’s Day gift you can give is giving her some time to herself. Run her a hot bath, light some candles and get a room diffuser going so that she can relax in a home-spa set up. Or, opt for a houseplant to brighten up her home with a touch of nature.

For the wildlife lover  

If your mother-figure enjoys sustainable gardening and being eco-friendly, then we’ve got plenty of gift ideas for you. Surprise your mum with a beautiful bird box, bird table or bird bath. Or, if you’re into DIY, make her a handmade bird table by following this guide. If you want to get into the sustainable spirit with her, you could even create a wildlife friendly garden or build a bug hotel together.

Gifts for foodies  

Now Spring has sprung, take advantage of the sunnier days to plan an outdoor Mother’s Day feast. If your mum loves to cook, put together a BBQ starter kit or treat her to a new BBQ. Make sure she’s got the cookware she needs and set up a table outdoors with gorgeous table linen, her favourite dinner set and stunning serve ware

For the mum to be  

Mother’s Day can also be a day to celebrate friends or relatives who are expecting. Support the women in your life with children on the way by gifting them with comfy cushions, throws or a cosy new bedding set to snuggle into.

 If she’s a business boss  

Working 9-5, what a way to make a living! Being a mother doesn’t mean you can’t also be a strong career woman. If your mum’s home office needs an upgrade, we’ve got plenty of desk organisers, office storage and desks to transform her workspace. If she’s more of a relaxed worker, an adjustable laptop tray is a great alternative.

Stick with sentimental  

Last but not least, there truly is no better way to show your mother-figure how much you care than with a sentimental gift. Fill a photo frame with memories so she has something to remind her of the good times you’ve shared. With plenty of frames to choose from, you’re sure to find one that suits her style.
