Mum's the Word : go-to websites for that perfect Mother's Day gift

Mother’s Day is around the corner. Oh what to buy?!

I’ve been having a snoop around the web for sites that we think pair perfect prezzies with effective design to give you the ideal gift buying experience.

So here are five top sites to help you find Mum a present that will remind her of what an awesome creation she made.

Not on the High Street .com


My personal fave for finding gifts for that special someone. And who is more special than Mum?! have a whole host of presents from Sweet Treat Gift boxes to Gin tasting and Distillery experiences helpfully grouped in a specific ‘Mothers Day Wish List’ section of their site.

Their range of personalized prezzies help you add that extra cute touch, with their drop down menus and/or comment boxes enabling you to add your personal message or requirements simply.

Their easy to use “refine by” tool bar allows you to narrow your search in regards to price, type of gift, or delivery so that your search is efficient.



Marks and Spencer




The Mothers Day gift offerings at are as meticulously organised as expected- super handy for any gift seeker.




As the menu above shows, you can search by offers, or type of gift, and being M&S you have options galore. The special Mother’s Day Flowers section exemplifies how products should be displayed, with the beautifully vibrant images:



I also love the Style & Living ‘Get the Look’ ‘One Stop Mothers Day Shop’ which provides gift inspiration for certain ‘types’ of Mum. Whilst stereotyping is not usually my thing, this way of searching gifts is certainly handy if you’re in need of a little inspiration this year. Their ‘Top 10 Mother’s Day Shop’ talks you through great gift ideas in a clear numbered format with direct links to pages to buy each type of product.






groupon offers special deals on goods or events. Whilst it doesn’t have a special Mothers Day section, its categories such as ‘beauty and spas’ make it simple to find something suitable for Mothers Day. In fact, the extensive categorization of every product can help you search for the specific treat you have in mind.




Groupon is particularly fab if you’re looking to buy your Mum an experience or event rather than a physical gift as their ‘Getaways’ and ‘Events’ sections provide you with endless purchases. It might sound cringe, but why not create memories to last a lifetime this Mothers Day?!



Oliver Bonas




Loving how have maintained their sleek look in their display of Mother’s Day offerings, rather than joining the pink flowery obsessives. Their homepage holds a clear link to their Mothers Day section, with their chosen image fitting their stylised site and thus continuing their identity:




Oliver Bonas is the right site to visit for either classic or quirky gift, and their easy to navigate tool bar will assist your search.




John Lewis



With its department store status, certainly delivers choice in terms of Mothers Day presents.



I’m a fan of the ‘Gifts by interest’ option of the tool bar, as consider this a great way to browse for your special someone.


The ‘A brunch for mum’ section is particularly cute, and a clever move on John Lewis’ part as advertises the vast array of products they offer, by incorporating them into how to make brunch for Mum as a Mother’s Day treat.
