1. A Mulberry silk eye mask from Scooms
If your Mum is someone who struggles to sleep then treat her to an eye mask for Mother's Day. Not any eye mask, but a Mulberry silk one – it will feel lovely on her face, and it's great for those luscious brows and lashes. This one from Scooms is comfortable, breathable and hypoallergenic. It also comes in a matching drawstring bag so she can take it on her travels.
Scooms Silk Eye Mask | £25 at Scooms
We own (and sleep in) this Scooms eye mask and we love it. It's O-TEX certified making it free from chemicals and toxins, and it comes in four colourways – pink, black ivory and champagne. The latter is our personal favourite. It also arrives in plastic-free packaging that's recyclable, too.View Deal
2. An essential oil diffuser from The White Company
A The White Company bestseller, an electronic diffuser works with water and fragrance oils to create a relaxing atmosphere in Mum's home. She can set it on a timer to release scent for a certain amount of time – from one hour to three hours – and it will automatically turn off when empty. It also doubles as a light so would be ideal placed on a side table in a living room. Unlike a candle or a reed diffuser, an essential oil diffuser is the gift that keeps on giving...
The White Company Electronic Diffuser | £65 at The White Company
Treat Mum to this, along with a fragrance oil (we recommend Seychelles) and give the gift of something she can enjoy every day. This diffuser is both pretty and practical, with a Skandi-inspired design – its white ceramic casing and wooden base makes a lovely addition to a living room.View Deal

3. A tea gift box from Fortnum & Mason
Whether she's a tea lover or not, this Fortnums gift box will go down a treat in Mum's kitchen. Whether she chooses to pop the tins on display or use them for her afternoon tea, this gift set also comes with digestives and a tea strainer. What more does she need?
4. A lovely bouquet of flowers from Bloom
We all know the power of a pretty bouquet – not only can flowers brighten a room, but they can drastically improve your mood, too. This luxurious bouquet from Bloom is filled with Coral Snapdragons, and Bloom flowers arrive ready to display and already out of bud so she can enjoy them straight away. Choose how many stems you want to gift her, from 20 to 50.
Bloom Coral Snapdragons bouquet | From £45 at Bloom
Tell her to pop this bouquet in her longest vase and place it in the middle of a dining table, or in her living room to make a statement. These flowers will arrive in 100 per cent recyclable packaging, with full details on how to look after these stems. View Deal
5. The best-selling Simba weighted blanket
Filled with nanobeads to comfort Mum while she sleeps, a weighted blanket offers a full-body hug she needs to fall asleep – and stay asleep – every night. A weighted blanket isn't just for use while laying down. She could also drape it over her shoulders or pop it over her feet while she sleeps or catches up on her favourite TV programme. Great for reducing stress and anxiety, the Simba Orbit is super soft with a 100 per cent cotton cover that's washable.
Simba Orbit Weighted Blanket | From £169 at Simba
This weighted blanket works to help your body rest and relax by adding a small amount of deep pressure therapy to your body. This regulates heartbeat, relaxes muscles and eases the mind. Perfect for a busy Mum who can never find the time to sit down.
6. Some yoga cards from John Lewis & Partners
If your Mum relies on a good stretch on her yoga mat to refresh her mind and get her ready for the day, then buying these yoga cards from John Lewis & Partners would make a lovely gift idea. She needn't fiddle with her phone to ensure she's posing right any longer. Not only do these cards feature photos, but they have instructions on how to perform each pose, too, and they will look lovely in her home gym.
Luckies Yoga Cards | £9.95 at John Lewis & Partners
These cards are here when her yoga class can't be, and they feature 52 different easy-to-hold poses from Warrior II to Tiger Pose. The idea is that you practise one card a week, so that within a year Mum will be a yoga enthusiast.View Deal
7. A bamboo bath tray from Heal's
If she loves a dip with her favourite book and candle but has nowhere to put things down without stretching or leaving the tub, then she needs a bath shelf. This one is made from solid oak and it's perfect for holding anything from accessories to products. It's moisture impervious, too, and perfect for contemporary or Skandi-style bathrooms.
Wireworks Wooden Bath Bridge | £48 at Heal's
A bath tray makes a lovely present for someone who loves to bath a little too much. This one is high-quality so it will last years of use, and it's bamboo-coloured. It's also great for extra bathroom storage, should she need it!View Deal
8. This chunky and cosy blanket for chilly nights
Last but definitely not least, a chunky blanket for cold nights in the living room or chilly evenings in the garden. This inviting blanket is as soft as it looks, and it's pretty large. Perfect for a sofa, bed, garden sofa or guest room – and it comes in four colourways. The neutral beige colour being our favourite, unsurprisingly...
9. A personalised bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rose
Possibly the most relaxing buy on our list, especially once she has enjoyed a few glasses of it, this bottle of Champagne will be sure to have Mum smiling. It comes in a lovely pink box with a pencil-shaped magnet for you to write a message to Mum on. Pop this message in the box, facing outwards, so she can see it while opening. Something different yet definitely relaxing – just make sure you gift it to her chilled.
Veuve Clicquot Rose Magnet Message Champagne | £49.90 at The Bottle Club
You might already know this from experience, but this Champagne tastes as good as it looks. Mum will love it as it's something different to the usual Champagne she drinks, and the fact it can be personalised makes it a unique gift idea.View Deal
