Mother’s Day is the one day of the year to go above and beyond and show that special mum or mother figure in your life how much you care.

This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 11 March. If you’ve not posted your Mum a Mother’s Day card yet, there’s still time! Post your card First Class before Royal Mail’s last collection on Friday 9 March.

If you want to thank your mum for everything she does with more than a card, but can’t deliver it in person this Mother’s Day, then why not treat her to a mail order gift.

Here are five ways we think you can send your love to your mum no matter where you are:

Send her flowers. There’s nothing we love more than a Bloom & Wild package arriving in our office! The ‘letterbox flowers’ arrive in post box friendly packaging so they can be delivered whether or not someone is home at the time of delivery. They have lots of beautiful bouquets available at varying price points, including hand tied bouquets, plants, hampers and added gifts. So, you’re sure to find something perfect for your mum!

Send her biscuits. Who doesn’t love a good biscuit?! Biscuiteers offer bespoke tins full of delightfully decorated biscuits. They have birthday themed biscuits, thank you biscuits, engagement biscuits and just about every other type of biscuit you can imagine. So, of course they have an entire Mother’s Day collection. Choose from a super-size super mum jolly ginger biscuit, to a flower bouquet tin of biscuits, or even a giant tin of bouquet chocolates personalised with your message. This is a sweet treat your mum is sure to enjoy!

Send her jewellery. Ah jewellery, a classic favourite of Mother’s Day. Instead of buying something generic, Posh Totty offer delightful personalisation on their products. There’s a huge variety of styles, and you can add meaningful names, words or dates to many of them. You can send Gran a personalised locket necklace with a drawing by your children on the front. Or, personalise a Russian ring necklace with all the names of your mum’s children, and personalise it further with birthstones. The options are truly endless! Whether your mum prefers gold or silver, flashy or simple, you’ll be able to find something she’ll love.

Send her some warmth. The Tartan Blanket Company offer customisable giftboxes with a wide array of products. In the Mother’s Day box there’s a lambswool scarf, specialty chocolate and a mug, plus added options of jewellery, bath salts and gift notes. Each product has the option for you to choose colour, flavour and style so its easy to make it something your mum would love! There are other giftbox options with different products like Isle of Skye Candles, tea and more. ‘Hug in a Mug’, ‘Slow Living’ or ‘Touch of Scotland’ are all great Mother’s Day alternative options!

Send her something personal. Maybe your mum doesn’t like flowers, or biscuits, or jewellery. Or maybe, none of it feels personal enough for your special mum. Luckily, Moonpig and Not On the High Street are here to save the day! Both have a huge variety of options for Mother’s Day gifts, but the best is their personalised section. On Moonpig you can get everything from personalised mugs and aprons, to personalised bottles of prosecco. Meanwhile, Not On The High Street has personalised everything. From glasses stands to terracotta pots to bee hotels, they can personalise pretty much anything under the sun. So, if you’ve got a quirky mum or someone special in mind, personalise it to make it go the extra mile!
