A Day to Spoil Your Parents? Part II

13 Mar

So carrying on from my earlier post about the perfect wedding presents for your ma and pa I’d like to offer some ideas on presents for your mum. Whatever approach to your wedding your mum has taken, be it laid back and overseeing plans from a distance or the frontline “mum on a mission” your mum will no doubt be as excited as you and your groom about your big day. Being the mother of the bride is an important and significant day in your mum’s life and giving her a gift that she can cherish will be something she can look back on in years to come as a keepsake from yours and her mementous day.

For your mum:

How about a gorgeous antique locket with her favourite childhood picture of the two of you inside? This stunner is just one from a selection of some beautiful original antique lockets from The Antiques Centre York. If you don’t like the idea of something that already has history attached to it you could always go for a brand new alternative such as this white gold heart shaped locket from Ernest Jones.  



Another item taken from the fab Not on the Highstreet website. A beautiful silver engraved handbag mirror by Hersey Silversmiths would always come in useful for your mum, especially those that have been known to love the lippy on the go! An engraving of a sentimental message from you would be a lovely addition to an already lovely present.


Once again, imagine that mint green box and the signature ribbon but this time picture the beaming smile on your MUM’S face. These beautiful necklaces and earrings are snippets from the Tiffany & Co. “Sparklers” range. Whatever your mum is wearing for your wedding something from this range is bound to compliment her outfit. Consisting of matching necklace, earrings and cocktail rings in either gold or silver with stunning purple Amethyst, green Praseolite, and orange & yellow Citrine stones there is something for every mum.


Everyone’s favourite charm bracelet – the sweetie bracelet from Links of London. This cute silver bracelet is made up of tiny ringlets and is sweet enough to be worn as it is or can be adorned with individual charms, also found at Links. You could go one step futher and start your mum’s bracelet off with the heart charm engraved with your and your hubby to be’s initials. Cute eh?!


Technically this gift isn’t something that will last forever however it still comes with the same sentiment. What better to spoil your mum with than some lovely Jo Malone smellies? The set pictured comes with grapefruit hand and body wash, red rose cologne and a red rose candle which all comes wrapped in Jo Malone’s exclusive gift box and ribbon. When it comes to all things fragrant nothing comes more swish than this!


Last but not least, this is another gem from Not on the High Street by Button and Bean and would be a perfect accompaniment to the mens fingerprint cufflinks if you did want to go for matching presents for your mum and dad. The fingerprint bangles include three hearts, one imprinted with your fingerprint. As I said before, you are never too old for a present like this. I think it’s a really good idea and a touching imprint of time. Excuse the pun!

I hope you like my ideas for mother and father of the bride gifts as much as I do. This is the first post on my blog that I have shown my hubby to be and it gets the big thumbs up from him and I hope it does from you 🙂

Thanks for reading, Laura x
