10 Mother’s Day Gifts We’d Love To Receive This Year That AREN’T Flowers!

While flowers are a beautiful gift to receive on Mother’s Day, they aren’t very practical (not to mention the gorgeous, aroma filled things only last a couple of days and can be super expensive).

So, we’ve pulled together a list of useful gifts we REALLY want this Sunday from our kids (cough – partners).

Start hinting now, mums!

10 Practical Gift Ideas For Mother’s Day

1. Spiraliser Machine

If you don’t already have one of theses, then we recommend you get one now! This clever vegetable cutting contraption means you can enjoy your favourite pasta dish, without all those heavy calories from the pasta.

This means you will be able to make and enjoy our yummy Zucchini Noodles and Feta and Mint Pesto dish.

2. Relaxation

Be it a trip to the day spa, a massage or a hair appointment. Get the mum in your life a gift voucher for floating (the latest and hottest trend), a manicure and pedicure or the movies.

All any mum really wants to be able to do is have the spare time to be somewhere, guilt free and do… well, nothing.

3. Gift Voucher For Clothes


This is especially handy for our community mums who are kicking goals and losing weight this year! We need new clothes – like our Healthy Mummy vest tops – to show off our new amazing bodies!

4. Cute Recorded Messages

Ask your kids for a cute recorded personal message, song or dance for Mother’s Day. It would be a lovely memento to keep of your brood in their younger years.

5. Challenge Subscription


Noticed your wife checking out The Healthy Mummy Challenge?

Yes, she wants to sign up! No, she hasn’t done it yet. Yes, you should definitely do it for her with love from the kids!

6. A Day Off

Completely guilt-free to do whatever it is that we like to do. And no pesky phone calls while we’re doing it please!

7. Thoughtfulness

At the end of the day, what we really want from our loved ones is for them to show us THEY HAVE thought about, well, mum! Any gift and or card that says – yes mummy you are appreciated – goes a long way!

8. Homemade Vouchers


How fun would it be if your kids made you a list of vouchers that you could trade in? Like a cup of tea – or a promise of some peace and quiet!

9. A Lie In

If you can’t get a full day off, maybe a lie-in would be sufficient.
