Mother’s Day is the perfect time to lavish love and attention on the mother-like figures (including grandmas, aunts, sisters, same-sex parents, or anyone you think deserves some recognition as ‘mum’) in your life with some much-deserved self-care Mother’s Day gift ideas.
When it comes to superheroes, mum’s are the real deal; they do so much for their families every day and rarely take time for themselves. With that said, we don’t know a Mum who wouldn’t love a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift that nurtures self-care and ‘me-time’. Whether you see Mum every day or they live further away, you can show them just how much they mean to you with this collection of self-care inspired Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Non-alcoholic cocktail gift sets
You can’t pass up non-alcoholic cocktail gift sets when searching for the ultimate self-care Mother’s Day gift with vacation vibes. We recommend these phenomenal sets:
Bianco Spritz Gift Set: Delightfully refreshing with a hint of orange and a slice of cucumber. This particular gift set comes with two premium Highball wine glasses that are perfect for Mum and will ensure happy spirits with a light drink low in alcohol.
Lyres Pink Gin Fizz Gift Set: This particular cocktail is so jolly English; if it were a living thing, it would look like a cross between the Queen’s favorite Corgi and Wimbledon centre court. This gift set comes with two premium Highball glasses with unique carvings that Mum will adore!
Lyres Pink London Spritz Set: Simple & delicious. This spritz can take the dip with either tonic, soda water or lemonade for a sweeter finish. Top with a lemon wheel and berry of choice… Mwah, chef’s kiss!
Lyre’s Podcast with Vic & Lucy
For Mum’s who love podcasts and are ready to be inspired, engaged and informed about the effects of binge drinking on anxiety and mental health, we recommend Lyre’s Up close with Vic & Lucy from the Sober Awkward Podcast Collection. We caught up with them to find out why they started the podcast and what giving up alcohol means to them. This interview includes the tales of misadventures into parenting and sobriety while being brutally honest and often hilarious.
Non-alcoholic cocktail recipes
If Mum enjoys cocktails - and honestly, what mum doesn't - a thoughtful self-care gift includes a journal featuring some of the finest non-alcoholic cocktail recipes that ever existed. Let Mum indulge her senses with alcohol-free, hangover-free recipes for all her favorite classics, whether it be a Spritz, Martini, or Negroni.
If you don’t have time to handmake a journal for Mum, the fantastical first edition of Lyre’s impossibly crafted creations includes 80 beautifully presented pages filled with Lyre’s bestselling non-alcoholic and low-alcoholic cocktail recipes.
An elegant serving tray full of goodies
An elegant serving tray is the perfect self-care Mother’s Day gift Mum needs for a relaxing night with her favorite foods and people. To complete the gift, include a few healthy snacks and some non-alcoholic beverages, and invite the family over for a night focused on Mum.
A tea and coffee gift box
There’s something delightfully comforting about sitting down with a tea or coffee, particularly for busy mums who rarely take time for themselves. An assortment of tea and coffee handpicked by Mum’s adoring children is a fantastic gift to help Mum wind down or prepare for the day ahead.
Package it up in a special box decorated with curly ribbons and thank you notes, and slip in Lyre’s Coffee Original to make it extra special - we know Mum will appreciate it!
Self-care subscription boxes
If you’ve been searching high and low for self-care Mother’s Day gifts online, but nothing quite seems good enough for Mum, you could try a self-care subscription box; that way, you can show your love and appreciation every month!
If you’d like to create your own monthly subscription box, add some lotions, bath soaks, healthy snacks, non-alcoholic drinks and magazines to promote comfort and relaxation. You can buy Lyre’s alcohol-free, low-calorie drinks in cases of 6 and 12, so you’ll have them ready to send to Mum each month!
DIY spa gift set or a day at the spa
A spa day (whether at a day spa or DIY at home) is the perfect way for Mum to relax and practise some much-deserved self-care.
If you’re opting for an at-home DIY spa day, stock your kitchen with succulent fruits, fragrant baked goods, a bottle of sparkling and perhaps some phenomenal cocktails, and give mum a spa-day gift set full of lotions and creams that’ll keep Mum feeling pampered and loved, even after the day has finished.
The gift of time
Any mum will tell you that the greatest gift they could receive is quality time with their children and having their children invest time in them.
We’ve outlined some great Mother’s Day activities that are sure to make Mum feel loved and appreciated throughout the day. You can also try these other Mother’s Day gift ideas that promote self-care and give a little time back to Mum:
Give Mum a day off in the kitchen by cooking her favorite meal - and don’t forget to clean up afterwards! Make this extra special by giving her a few hand-made ‘dining vouchers’ that let her take the day off whenever she needs it.
A homemade wellness pack
A homemade wellness pack topped full of essential self-care Mother’s Day gifts is guaranteed to be adored by mums of every kind. To make it even more fun, try individually wrapping different items and labelling them with an ‘open me on...’ date! Mum will love the gift that keeps on giving.
Items to include should be your mum’s favorite things that promote self-care and relaxation: a book, beauty products, non-alcoholic drinks and some recipes for inspiration, a sleeping mask and pyjamas… the Mother’s Day gift ideas are endless, so have some fun with it - we know Mum will!
Mum’s emergency stash
I don’t know a mum (or a person in general) that doesn’t love - or need - an emergency stash of their favorite indulgence to get them through a tough day! Even ordinary days call for a bit of indulgence, so we can’t think of a gift more coveted than a carefully curated selection of chocolates, biscuits, and non-alcoholic drinks like a bottle of sparkling packaged up in a special box just for Mum.
