Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for the Home

I find it hard to show my mother how much I appreciate everything that she did (and does) for me and to come up with an original and thoughtful gift idea for Mother’s Day.

This year, I took a different approach with unique Mother’s Day ideas! As mums are known to make a house a home I thought it’s a good idea to start there…

Home Decorating Mother’s Day Gifts

There’s loads of cute home decorating bits that you’ll find in the shops before Mother’s Day. From gorgeous photo frames and candle holders to floral patterned cards and cushions. Here are my top three that I absolutely love…

1. New Laura Ashley’s home collection that I blogged about last month, full of butterflies and colourful decoupage.

2. Chic photo frames from Next that make a perfect personalised gift when you add family photos.

3. The best storage options for the home, from Zara Home, as Mums are all about keeping the homes tidy!

Ideal Home Show

I received two complimentary tickets to the Ideal Home Show 2015 from Hammonds and guess who I thought I might take with me to meet celebrity interior designer Julia Kendell? You’ve guessed it… my best friend… only joking! My mum of course 🙂

As she is a big fan of interiors, making her own curtains and sofa throws, there’s no doubt she’ll enjoy the abundance of home interior styling tips at the show.

House Beautiful Magazine Subscription

As a big fan of interiors and home decorating myself (in case you’ve not noticed my obsession on the blog… haha) I have a subscription to the House Beautiful Magazine and think any mum would appreciate the same too. It’s perfect for a bit of inspiration, helpful tips and tutorials and personally, to feed that compulsive home obsession 🙂

So, do you think you’ll be getting your mum something to do with the home?

    I’d never thought of looking in Next for frames before – my Mum would love these! Going to have to keep my eyes open next time I’m there!
