The Definitive Mother’s Day Gift Guide

The Definitive Mothers Day Gift Guide Treats For You And Mum ThrifDeeDubai

Discover the perfect present for you & mum among this list for Mothers Day.

What’s your idea of a perfect Mother’s Day? Mine is having breakfast in bed, no cooking or cleaning all day! (wishful thinking) getting a hand made card, possibly some treats (Anything from Pandora or L’Occitane is accepted :P) & enjoying the day with those mini people I brought into the world!
I always got my mother a treat, although so they say, Mother’s day is every day in Islam. It’s not always the case! It isn’t every day we are given a day off to put our feet up, given gifts or taken out somewhere nice! So we should see this a blessing!

But don’t wait for the other people in your life to remember Mothers Day! Most of us need to “remind” & hint till we’re blue in the face before anyone around us remembers a birthday/anniversary, let ALONE Mother’s Day! So lets take matters into our own hands, nobody wants to wake up with not even a home made card! (the best gift ever!)
So I’ve come up with a list of gifts for mum & “ahem ahem” reminders for the loves of your lives to make you feel special because, you’re worth it! Not only that…. if we can steer them in the right direction for gift ideas, it makes it even better as you get something you’ve had your eye on for a while! – win, win!

The ThrifDee Mother’s Day Gift Guide – UPDATED

Firstly is my favorite Pandora .They’re collection for this coming mothering Sunday is just so precious! The thing I love about Pandora, is how sentimental their items can be. The perfect gift for you or mum! – Mothers Day Pandora Collection

Nothing is nicer than getting a handmade gift that you know was made with love! The kids are experts at this, but if you’re thinking of something to help a small business get it’s feet off the ground, might I suggest some beautiful Decoupaged wooden items or Lavender filled cushions from my favorite Etsy store – HandyCrafts Treasures

Indulge, pamper & really treat yourself, with the special offers available this month especially for Mother’s Day at – L’Occitane

As a kid you have those memories that will always remind you of your Mum, a song, a favorite meal, or a scent! Something I always remember my mum using was “Oil Of Ulay” (called Olay nowadays) the scent will ALWAYS remind me of her! She swore by it & also loved anything by Royal Jelly, when I recently saw it, I instantly had to add this to my gift guide – Royal Jelly Bath & Body Glass Jar Gift Set

Another famous product I always heard my mum rave on about was the Avon – Skin So Soft range! I never forget my first try of the SSS bath oil, I felt so “lady like” as it was something I was never allowed to use, those were my mums special pamper goodies, no kids allowed! Once I finally tried it out, I was hooked! The new range with perfect gifts for mothers day can be found with *50%* Discounts on their beauty spectacular happening now too! – Avon

My next go to place is Monsoon, they have the prettiest trinkets & gift ideas, along with gorgeous sweaters – Monsoon

How could I forget the most loved Mother’s Day gift?? Flowers & Chocolates!! –


The last but certainly not least on my list is the super cute array of quirky “bouquet’s” available from my favorite cafe in Notting Hill. They have totally unique biscuits (yes I said biscuits) but these are not just the Digestive type of biccy! These are personalized, hand made & so thoughtful!
Get them here – Biscuiteers Boutique

Well there you have it! My run down of the best things to get for mum or hint for yourself….. “ahem” I mean lightly REMIND the family for this coming weekend! It’s not often we get this chance, so lets lap it up & enjoy!

    Pretty nice list. Each item is different from another 🙂 but as a minimalist newbie I personally don’t prefer to have anything enter my home until I really need it and I also don’t like gifts that end sooner or later (except services).

    So for anyone gifting me – gift cards or sponsoring a body massage would be best idea 😉

    As I don’t have a sweet tooth will settle for the handmade card and lotions. Also, I think a relaxing visit to the spa or a massage would be a great gift for us mothers as we rarely get a chance to pamper ourself. Although I don’t think it is a thrifty option in Middle East🤔

      You’d be surprised there’s some good offers on at the moment 😊

    The chocolate seems to be the winner & I can’t argue with you ladies 😍😂

  5. 12/03/2018 / 3:47 pm

    Oh I am loving that chocolate bouquet! Right up my street that one!

  6. 12/03/2018 / 3:13 pm

    Chocolate is what I live for. Lol
    Loved this post. Great ideas. I cooked for my mother on mother’s day & she was very happy with it. Haha
    Each & everyday is a mother’s day you know so every day we should do something to make them happy 💓

      Agreed! masha’Allah that’s so sweet of you, mums deserve the best! 🙂

    Ahh chocolate!! Amazing ideas ma shaa Allah!! JazakilAllahu Khayr for sharing this with us.. My mum would love wallets or bags 😅 Or some kitchen stuffs.. f

    I’m all over the chocolate bouquet! I also love when my daughter makes me a gift. I’m a sucker for “mom” gifts. Mugs, keychains, tshirts, etc.

  9. 11/03/2018 / 4:28 am
