47 best gifts for mums to score endless brownie points and secure favourite child status

Gifts for mums can be tricky to find – and there’s one simple reason why. Mums are always there, giving their unconditional love and support and helping us through everything that life throws our way. So we pile on the pressure when it comes to finding perfect present that screams “I love you.” ‘Cos how can any gift for mum accurately represent just how much we care? 

Whether you’re searching for birthday gifts for mums, Christmas gifts for mums, Mother’s Day gifts or mum gifts to mark another special occasion, GLAMOUR’s carefully-curated gift guide of the best gifts for mums will leave you spoilt for choice. And scoring serious son/daughter brownie points. 

From skincare gift sets for the ultimate pamper night to afternoon tea vouchers, perfumes, silk pillowcases and fancy new wine glasses, there’s something in this gift guide that’ll raise the festive spirits of every kind of mum this gifting season. We’ve found gifts for fussy mums (read: luxurious pyjama sets that she’ll never want to take off), personalised gifts that suggest you have way more time on your hands than you actually do, sentimental gifts for mums (think: adorable, personalised keyrings) and photo frames to house your favourite post-lockdown selfie. Oh, and we’ve got letterbox gifts, too, for those of you who won’t get to see her IRL this Mother’s Day. Sob
