How to Choose a Christmas Present for Mum in the UK - Buying Guide

A bit of careful planning can save you infinite stress and panic at Christmas time. Taking a moment to properly consider the type of gift that would bring your mum joy this year will not only spare you the last-minute anxiety of grabbing any old present, it will also show your mama how valued she is.

Give an Experience That Suits Your Mum's Interests and Personality

Mums are a varied bunch, so have a think about what makes yours special before choosing a gift. We've divided the presents we've found into several categories, which will be suited to different types of mum. Read on for our suggestions on presents to suit various character types and lifestyles. 

Edible Gifts or Kitchen Accessories Are Perfect for Foodie Mums

Edible Gifts or Kitchen Accessories Are Perfect for Foodie Mums

Giving food and drink is a surefire way to put a smile on the face of the foodie in your life. If your mum enjoys eating well, we reckon she'll love a bottle of her favourite alcohol or a box of unusual chocs. 


To get a little more creative with the food and drink theme, what about a kitchen accessory for your mum, like an attractive mug for her morning tea or a cooking tool to inspire a festive recipe?

For Homebodies Who Love to Lounge Around: Cosy Clothing

For Homebodies Who Love to Lounge Around: Cosy Clothing

Keeping warm in winter is top of everyone's list, but if mum is snowed under with Christmas preparations and her own present shopping, splashing out for some new cosy clothing might soon be forgotten.


And that's where you, offspring of the year, come in! Think a woolly cardigan, fleecy slippers or some other effortless item of loungewear. A perk of giving loose-fitting clothes is that you don't have to be accurate with size measurements. A possible drawback is choosing colours your mum will suit and love.

Treat Busy, Hard-Working Mamas to Some Stress-Free Self Care

Treat Busy, Hard-Working Mamas to Some Stress-Free Self Care

Want to encourage your mum to take some time to breathe deeply and relax this Christmas? You might want to consider giving her a present that lets her indulge in a spot of self-care. Think indulgent pampering cosmetics, or presents that encourage the woman who gave you life to live hers more slowly.


On our list you'll spy a microwavable cuddly toy, scented with heavenly combinations so Mum can cuddle up with a classic Christmas movie and let her cares drift away. Also among our picks are scented hand creams and lip balms – a good shout for any Mums in the family you don't know closely – such as new mothers-in-law!

Want Something a Little Different? Pick a Gift That Involves a Fun Activity

Want Something a Little Different? Pick a Gift That Involves a Fun Activity

Perhaps you're bored of giving the same old gifts on rotation; scarves, candles and other classics can get a bit tiresome, we agree. To branch out from the usual Mum-themed gifts, we think a Christmas present that lends itself to a fun activity is a wonderful idea. 


Consider giving green-fingered mums a plant, or present musical mothers with a collection of festive sheet music for a family singalong. What could possibly go wrong?

Hey Big Spender! Remember Meaningful Gifts Needn't Cost a Bomb

Hey Big Spender! Remember Meaningful Gifts Needn't Cost a Bomb

You really don't need to spend a fortune to make your mum feel loved this Christmas. We once heard a tip that you should buy the smallest single item you can for your budget, rather than several cheaper bits, to get the most value and give the most fabulous present within your means. 


We've divided our presents into a few helpful price brackets: £10 and under for lovely presents for Mum on a shoestring, and Under £20 if you've got a bit more leeway. 


Those happy to shell out, or able to share costs with siblings may prefer items from the £25 to £50 category. Finally we have a couple of items priced between £50 to £100, for anyone lucky enough to have a big budget this festive season.

Top 10 Best Christmas Presents for Mum in the UK

Cue the sleigh bells, it's time to unwrap our top ten picks for the best gifts for mothers this Christmas. We can't wait for you to find your favourite and give mum something truly memorable after what has been a crazy old year.
