Hello, friends – it’s your friendly neighbourhood Mia, taking advantage of seasonal content!
Now, I could sing the praises of mothers; the unconditional love and warmth they give us; the fact we quite literally wouldn’t be alive without them . . . but, quite frankly, I just want to show you all the pretty pictures. I think I’ve done well – my mum is going to love her mother’s day pressies.
In case you are like pre-last-week me and unaware, Mother’s Day (for the UK) is March 11th. So pretty damn soon. Well, kids, don’t worry – I’ve got your back. I’ve spent hours combing the web for the best deals, the cutest finds, the most meaningful gifts . . . so it looks like you spent way more time deciding what to get her than you actually did.
Plus, because I love my mum but at the same time I have to pay out for her birthday, Christmas, my own life and all the aforementioned holidays for my dad too . . . these gifts are all pretty budget friendly. See, guys? Not all heroes wear capes.
Without further ado, I bring to you – 20 gift ideas for mum under £20. Told you these were budget friendly! Then, once we get through those, I’ll show you what I bought my mother and you can steal some inspiration.

1. “I’m A Mum – What’s Your Superpower? Coaster – ASOS – £3.50
I think this gift is so damn cute – and it doesn’t get more affordable than less than a fiver! If your mother is anything like mine, she loves tea (and it’s UK mother’s day, which means everyone celebrating is British – so it’s a relatively safe assumption that your mother also loves tea), which makes a coaster a great idea. Plus, there’s also an adorable matching mug.
2. Candles – TK Maxx
My mother absolutely loves candles; you cannot walk into our house and not smell some form of lavender, sea salt or jasmine. TK Maxx always sell a massive variety of gorgeous and almost absurdly well-priced candles and this rose ganache and vanilla candle definitely has to be one of my favourite picks!
3. Bath Bombs – Amazon
Nothing says “mother I appreciate all the hard work you put into my existence” like essentially saying “you deserve a break”. Bath bombs are a wonderfully self-indulgence that your mother deserves after dealing with all your shit . . . plus, these ones are super cute!
4. Comfy Shoes – ASOS
Shoes don’t have to be wildly expensive. You can find some brilliant deals on fashionable and budget-friendly shoes on ASOS perfect for a mother’s day present. Naturally, I don’t know what style your mother wears – but here are a few classy staples I think most women could totally rock.
Here are just a couple of the many fantastic deals to be found. That said, there is a slight issue in that whilst shopping for my mother I was finding loads of deals for me . . .
5. Pyjamas – TK Maxx – £16.99
Pyjamas are always a default gift in our household – and they’re always a hit. Everyone loves a nice pair of comfy PJs and you can never have too many, right?
6. Morse Code Bracelet – Etsy – £10.00
Etsy is my go-to place for unique, meaningful gifts and I recently stumbled across these beauties. Morse code jewellery looks minimal and stylish, but also has secret meaning to it . . . which I love! Not only are these bracelets incredibly versatile and suited to a variety of tastes, they spell out “Mother”! Be still my heart.
7. Calm The F*** Down Tea – Amazon – £9.99
I’m not saying your mum needs this tea . . . but mine does.
8. Premium Faux Fur Hot Water Bottle – Amazon – £14.99
I really don’t think I need to explain this one; it bloody snowed last week.
9. Mum In A Million Mug – Paperchase – £10
10. Adorable Notebook – Etsy – £4.99
The Etsy store Nikki Strange has so many gorgeous notebook designs – and an offer of 3 for £10 an all their notebooks, so if your mother is a stationery lover like mine . . . get running!
11. Lamp – TK Maxx – £19.99
12. ASOS – Handbag – £14.99
13. Personalised Chocolate – Etsy
Okay . . . I want to buy all of this. Hold onto your credit cards, kids.

15. Necklace – Topshop – £12.50

19. Furry Dressing Gown – Amazon – £14.99
20. Fitness Tracking Bracelet – Amazon UK – £19.99
Well, now we’ve got the gifts for your mother out the way . . . here’s what I bought mine!
My mother is a big lover of shabby chic and vintage – and tea. We have loads of retro furniture in our kitchen, our dining room is shabby chic style and she’s been loving vintage teapots recently.
Enter me. I bought my mum a real vintage and rather beautiful if I do say so myself teapot from Etsy.
Now, unfortunately because this was a vintage teapot there aren’t any others available, but Etsy have a massive range of vintage goodies so if you’d like to pick your mother up something browse here.
That was her main gift, but I also bought her this little 365 day happiness journal. My mother is very into her meditation and self-improvement and this gorgeous little pad was only £5 from Paperchase!
I do have a couple of other little bits, but those are DIY gifts – and I’m going to be sharing those with you in another post! You guys know me; any excuse for a DIY.
Okay, so I hope you guys enjoyed this ‘lil gift guide. Are you celebrating Mother’s Day this year? Have you bought your mum anything yet? Which of the gifts I chose did you like? What did you think of my gifts for my mother? Isn’t that teapot to die for? Let me know your thoughts down below!
