Mums are always there to support us, look after us, clean up after us – even well into adulthood! Mother’s Day is our chance to show them quite how much they mean to us, and after spending the last two Mother’s Days in lockdown, we’d like to make this year extra special. But we know mums can be hard to buy for – what do you buy the woman who seems to have everything? That’s why we’ve come up with a list of some of our favourite thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts, which will show just how much you appreciate her.
Sometimes the best gift you can give is your time – even better when it comes with good food and a bottle of bubbly. Spend some quality time together as you dine from Cappuccino’s special Mother’s Day menu, with a choice of food available to eat in or takeaway.
Treat your mum to a sophisticated afternoon tea at Cappuccino’s. There’s a selection of fancy finger food including open sliders topped with tasty fillings like roasted chicken, bacon and mayo, or roasted ham and mature cheddar cheese. Plus, there’s soups, scones, salad and other sweet treats to enjoy as well. Choose from a small bottle of Prosecco or San Miguel to wash it down.
Perfect for an adventurous eater who likes to try a bit of everything. Our mixed platter for two is a pick and mix of continental meats, rich cheeses, stuffed peppers, sun dried tomatoes and a variety of bread, dips and pates to sample. Plus, choose from a small bottle of Prosecco or San Miguel to drink.
Sometimes, the simplest meals are the best. Enjoy a 12” pizza of your choice, with garlic bread, fries and slaw on the side, and a small bottle of Prosecco, wine or beer to drink. You can’t complain at that.

There’s nothing more thoughtful or heartwarming than a personalised present that you can treasure forever. Personalised can often translate to ‘expensive’, but you don’t have to break the bank with these personalised Mother’s Day gifts.
Get her a pawtrait (sorry, we had to) of her favourite fur baby. There are lots of different styles of portrait to choose from, including hand painted, digital portraits or even funny portraits of your pet as an 18th century general. Whatever you choose, your mum’s sure to love it, just don’t be too offended if your picture gets taken down from the mantelpiece to make room for it.
This one’s more for mum’s with young children, as you can get them to draw a special picture and message, which is then printed onto a make up bag! This really is such a special gift, which means that every time she comes to put her makeup on, she’s already got a smile on her face.
This one’s sure to make the wall. Buy your mum a chic personalised print, with the dates of birth for your parents, you, and all your siblings. You can find these relatively inexpensive prints on Etsy and frame them, ready to hang.
Sometimes, one present just isn’t enough. If you don’t want to blow your budget on just one present and then it’s gone, why don’t you go for a pick and mix present? Picking out some of her favourite bits will show just how well you know her.
Hampers are always a great choice of present, which you can cater to your budget. If you’ve got a £20 budget for example, you might include her favourite chocolate bar, a facemask, lip balm, a scented candle and some fluffy socks. On the other hand, if you’ve got a bigger budget to run with, you might include her favourite perfume, skincare, some silky pjs, a bottle of bubbly and some luxury Belgian chocolates. And, of course, you always have the option to buy a premade one from a range of stores, including Lookfantasic for the beauty fan or Marks and Spencer’s for the foodie.
If your mum’s got a signature cocktail that you can guarantee she’ll order on every night out, then why don’t you put together her very own cocktail making kit. Pick up a cocktail shaker, a stirrer and a couple of fancy glasses, as well as all the alcohol, syrups and fruits to make her favourite cocktail. Here’s hoping for some nice weather so you can sit out in the garden and enjoy drinking them together.
Sometimes it’s nice to get something you can treasure for a long time, especially if it’s a special occasion like her first Mother’s Day. Whilst keepsake gifts are normally more expensive, there are some budget options that we’ll include here too.
It wouldn’t be a Mother’s Day gift guide if jewelry wasn’t somewhere on this list. There’s really all sorts you could get, rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, but if you want to get her something really special, it’ll have to be a bit more personal. For example, you might buy her a locket or a watch engraved with your date of birth. Alternatively, you might get her a necklace, bracelet or ring with your birthstone. Or perhaps a charm bracelet which you can keep adding to for years to come. When choosing jewelry, make sure you pay attention to the metal she wears the most – gold, silver or rose gold?
Whether she’s just became a mum or she’s been doing it for decades, every mum needs somewhere to store her precious memories. Choose a sizable box for her to keep all those photos, paper clippings and trinkets that you love to look back on together. Try to choose a box that fits in with her decor, so she can keep it on hand to show every visitor all your embarrassing childhood photos.
We hope this Mother’s Day gift guide has given you some ideas to treat your mum this Mother’s Day. If you’d like to book a meal at Cappuccino’s, please call us on 01772 454287 to book a table, available to eat in or take out.
