If you’re looking for something more traditional, there are plenty of talented artists who can also transform her into a breathtaking watercolour painting or whatever medium you prefer.

2. Embroidered clothing

Does your kitchen rockstar mum do all the cooking and the baking for everyone? Consider gifting her an embroidered apron! You can even have “Cooking Queen,” “Best Mum Ever,” or other witty lines adorned on it, too.

Best of all, you can get your cupcakes personalised based on your partner’s preferences. Let your baker know their favourite flavour and toppings, or maybe write a sweet greeting on top of each cupcake for a more personal touch.

Want to take it up a notch? You can also explore various arrangements like cupcake bouquets and cupcake towers as an extra treat.

4. Restored photograph

Bring back life to an old family photo that’s faded, torn, or water-damaged. Whether it’s a favourite wedding photo or a childhood photo with mum, she’ll love seeing it restored and colourised!

You can put the picture in a bespoke wooden frame engraved with your names or a sweet message for an extra special touch.

5. Mother’s Day flowers

Without a doubt, flower bouquets are a classic Mother’s Day staple. Unleash your creativity with your flower arrangements and get your wife’s or aunt’s favourite tulips, lilies and roses in all shades and sizes.

Spoil them further by pairing the flowers with chocolates, a premium box of macarons and other pastries, or their ultimate comfort food.

Just make sure to secure your flowers days in advance to avoid Mother’s Day rush. Pressed for time? Get someone to pick up and deliver flowers so you can spend the day celebrating with the family.

6. Personalised printed shirts

You can print anything on a shirt these days – famous TV or movie quotes, witty catchphrases, and one-liners, literally whatever you can think of.

This Mother’s Day, share a laugh with your favourite fur mum as you give her a custom shirt with her pet’s adorable face printed on it!

You can also have statement shirts printed that say “World’s Best Dog Mum,” “Meow or Never,” or anything that will remind them of their beloved furry BFFs.

7. Garden makeover

Is your mum the plant-lover type? Or maybe she has a budding green thumb. In that case, why not surprise her with a garden makeover?
