Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Every Mother’s Day we’re always faced with the  familiar question of “What do I get Mum this year?” If searching for the perfect Mother’s Day gift is adding to the everyday stresses of being an adult, we at PostSnap have come up with five ideas for the ideal Mother’s Day gift for your lovely Mum.

At PostSnap, we believe in making everyone’s day with our customisable greeting cards that will bring a smile to Mum’s face. Simply choose your card’s design, add a photo and write a personalised message for the ultimate Mother’s Day card. PostSnap has tons of new designs ready for Mother’s Day so when you’ve finished finding the perfect present, download the app (or visit our website at www.postsnap.com) to create the perfect Mother’s Day card!

FLOWERS

What Mum doesn’t love a bouquet of flowers? While there’s loads of flower companies on the market, our friends at PostaBloom are our pick for Mother’s Day flowers. With their letterbox bouquets, it’s really easy to order flowers in time for Mum’s big day: the flowers fit straight through the letterbox, meaning your Mum doesn’t even have to be in to receive her present!

PostaBloom bouquets start from £25, and there’s something for every Mum in their collection! You can visit their website here

CANDLES

Candles make the perfect gift. There’s one for everyone and can be found at every price-point making them an easy, thoughtful and affordable gift for the Mum in your life. They’re also the kind of thing that somebody may not buy themselves, but make a perfect treat.

We like our candles scented, so pick a scent your Mum will love and add a little indulgence to her life. Our recommendations are the Flamingo Candles Cactus & Frangipani as part of their Frida Kahlo collection, or if you have money to splash on Mum, Diptyque offer a range of exquisite scents that will truly spoil her.

BOOKS

All Mums we know want an excuse to have time to themselves. We do believe that there is nothing better than settling down for “me time” with a gripping book that will keep you entertained for hours. You know your Mum’s reading habits better than we do, but if you’re really stuck, ShelterBox have launched a book club, so not only will Mum’s next read be a welcome break from the stress of normal life, but it will also be helping people in need!

You can find more information on the ShelterBox Book Club here!

STATIONARY

Know a Mum who simply must have everything organised? Does she need somewhere to scribble down shopping lists? Stationary can be a way of giving her something she’ll need, but also add a luxurious twist to the usual A5 notebook. Whether you make your own personalised notebook from our friends from AfterSnap, or buy these adorable birthstone and zodiac designs that we found at Urban Outfitters by Portico Designs , it’s a great present for the Mum in your life who is always on top of everything!

PAMPER

All Mums deserve a little treat on Mother’s Day. Whether you just want to treat her to a luxurious bubble bath or a face mask, add something special to her evening routine so she can unwind and relax in style. We’re believers that everyone can appreciate one of LUSH’s bath ballistics and bubble bars, but face-masks and body butters will also do the trick.

Celebrate your best friend this Mother’s Day

Postsnap mother's day greeting card

 

With our designers putting their finishing touches to our new range of Mother’s Day cards, it’s got me thinking about my best friend: my mum.

 

One day as a teenager, I decided to skip afternoon history class and headed home early from school. Little did I know that my mum had decided to do the same! When I walked through the back door we both looked at each other like rabbits in headlights.

 

The look on her face, the look on my face and then the eruption of laughter as we realised that not only had I been caught missing school, but I had caught her eating chocolate while watching Neighbours on the sofa! We still laugh about it today.

 

This cheeky nature, and her strong sense of humour is what bonds the two of us; she always put a smile on my face. 

 

Mum inspired us to pursue our hearts’ desire. She would practice what she preached by chasing her own dream of building a successful business of her own. She was then, and still is now, a hard worker (when she’s not skiving off work to watch Neighbours!).

 

She always put us kids first by pushing us through school while working a demanding job. She would give us every opportunity she and Dad could afford to give us. My mum wants us to be happy and would do anything she could for us.

 

She hasn’t given me a ton of money (or the brightest mind), but she loves us beyond words and has always been there for us when we needed a little support.

 

As far as I am concerned, this is all you need in a mum. Put simply: she is my best friend.

 

Make sure you swing by our Postsnap website or our Postsnap and CustomCard mobile apps for your Mother’s Day cards to celebrate your best friend on March 11.

Putting pet dogs on your Mother's Day card.

Mum's pet dog is on your personalised Mother's Day cardDoes Mum’s dog star on Mother’s Day cards rather than you? ? ?

We have seen an influx of Mother’s Day cards featuring pictures of pet spaniels and dachshunds rather than sons and daughters.

Don’t get me wrong, using photos of the forever photogenic pug that Mum adores on Mother’s Day cards certainly takes the pressure off!

(Especially on those days when our selfie faces are not on point…)

Would your mum prefer a Mother’s Day card from her ‘fur-baby’ too?

Send a family photo for Mother's Day

Make Mother’s Day extra special and create a personalised card using your own photos. If you’re not sure what photos to use, here are some ideas…

Send a photo of the kids for Mother's DaySilly photos
Dress up the kids and take a few silly snaps for a montage photo card for mum. Or dig out a fun family photo to make into a Large Postcard – these are bigger than a standard card and easy to frame as a gift.

Spot the difference
For the adult daughters out there, dig around for a photo of you when you were 21 and find a photo of your mum when she was 21. Upload them to Postsnap and use the two-photo layout to show the photos side-by-side. You may be surprised by how similar you both are!

pet dog photo for Mother's DayPets
Find the cutest photo of your mum’s beloved dog, cat or horse. For those days when you haven’t got your selfie-face on, a photo of the fur-babies (or as my mum has referenced them as: ‘your adopted siblings’) should do the trick!

Holiday
Find your favourite family holiday photo together. Maybe it was 10 years ago, or perhaps last summer. If you can’t choose one, select a few and make a photo montage with them.

Embarrassing photo of Mum
Perms from the 80s, shoulder pads, puffy high school ball gowns, drunken dance at Christmas two years ago… You know where the photo evidence is. And they all deserve to be on a card.

Mum and daughter photo for Mother's DayJust the two of us
Find a lovely photo of you and mum – maybe even look into getting a professional photo done of you both. It’ll be perfect to have on a card, and perhaps even get a print done to make into a canvas to display on the wall.

No matter what photos you choose, a personalised card will surely make Mum’s day!

Mum and daughter photo sent for mother's day

Mum and daughter photo sent for mother's dayIf you’re overseas, travelling, or on the go and can’t meet up with Mum on Mother’s Day (Sunday, 26 March), these gifts are quick, light and convenient ways of spoiling her while you’re away.

  • Afternoon tea for two
    Buy a voucher for Mum (plus one) to go for a special afternoon out to a classy tea room for scones and cakes. It won’t take much time to buy, and it would be a lovely, relaxing afternoon. Vouchers tend to be available online, and can be emailed – so no hassle there! ??  ?
  • An adventure!Buy mum a hot air balloon ride for mother's day
    A booking or a voucher for an adrenaline-fuelled tandem skydive or paraglide. For the more mellow adventures, perhaps a relaxing hot air balloon ride over the countryside. ?
  • Delivery for a super Mum
    Buy online with delivery to Mum’s doorstep. Perhaps flowers?  or a dress you know your mum would love. Alternatively, there are some great hamper delivery sites. You’ll find a great range online, from cheese, crackers and wine hampers, to chocolates, tea and biscuit hampers.
  • Dinner and a show
    Book a reservation for two, and buy theatre or movie tickets for Mum plus one. Now she has a great night out, already organised for her!
  • Buy mum a cocktail making course for mother's dayAn educational experience
    Candle-making, baking or a cocktail master class?, there are loads of social and fun classes to take. They tend to be held at local schools or community halls during the evenings. Mum could take a friend along and have a laugh, even gaining a certificate at the end of the class. (A little something extra to put on the CV.)

Top Tip: Don’t forget to check the time difference before ringing home on Mother’s Day!

  • A personalised gift
    Making a special card can go a long way. Using Postsnap, you can send an up-to-date photo of yourself for Mum to open on the day, maybe even frame it! ?

    • Or try out our new app Aftersnap for personalised mugs, calendars, posters, bags and more! ?
