First Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

If you know someone who has recently become a mother, it’s likely that they are still getting used to looking after their child. The most simple, routine parts of their day have had to change to make space for the small human they are now responsible for.

Getting out the door can be one of the hardest tasks for a new mum, given that she now has to bring the essentials for another person with her. That makes a stylish and versatile mum bag a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift idea for a new mum. If it’s her first Mother’s Day gift, select a large bag that’s spacious enough to squeeze in spare nappies, extra clothes, bottles, baby wipes, and more.

The Parisian Shopper Bag is tailored for mums who need to carry it all and is a go-to accessory that will make them feel good about themselves as they carry out their new daily routines. It includes two side pockets so that their phone, keys, and wallet can always be within easy reach. Apart from that, there are no other inner compartments which gives them lots of flexibility when they are packing for the day ahead.

The Nora Nylon Tote is also the perfect combination of practicality and style. It’s spacious, can be worn in multiple ways, and the nylon exterior is easy to clean.

The Monaco Shoulder Bag is another large, stylish bag perfect for new mums on the go. It fits a large waterbottle and has two internal pockets for a phone and keys and a zip pocket for valuables, not to mention its every girls favourite bag this season!

A crossbody bag is also a helpful Mother’s Day gift for new mums who constantly need to keep their hands free. A trendy bag like the Halsey Sling Bag is easy to style, fuss-free, and can hang across a mum’s shoulders without weighing her down.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Your Wife or Partner

Show your appreciation for your partner with an experience together. If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day gift idea for your wife or partner, then simply book a babysitter and put a special date night together in her calendar.

A small shoulder bag is an extra special touch that will make her feel beautiful while you spend time together. A date-night handbag like the Diaz Crossbody Bag will add a modern edge to her outfits and the detachable chain detailing allows her to dress it up or down.

Perhaps you want to book a weekend away for the two of you or the family. If that’s the case, she would love a beautiful travel bag that makes it easy for her to get out the door. A classic weekender bag with a soft and spacious design will make her life stress-free while packing her essentials.

The Boston Weekender Travel Bag is a beautiful carryall for overnight travel and you could hide a pair of plane tickets in one of the internal compartments for an unexpected Mother’s Day surprise.

Unique Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

If you want to give a gift that’s truly tailored for her, create your own Mother’s Day hamper and encourage your mum to pamper herself. You could purchase a stylish cosmetic bag and fill it up with her favourite beauty essentials.

The Emma Cosmetic Case is the toiletries bag that most mums don’t realise they need until they come across it. The beautiful cosmetic bag has plenty of space which means you can fill it up with her favourite skincare and gift her with an at-home spa day. It also comes with a functional hanging hook that makes it easy to access in the bathroom.

The Baby Hepburn Cosmetic Case is also part of Louenhide’s Chicks in Pink Collection and all proceeds from each one sold are donated to Mater Chicks in Pink. It’s a beautiful and feminine style that she would love to have in her life. She’ll also know that your gift has supported women impacted by breast cancer.

Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Don’t stress if you’ve left your gift to the last minute. If your mum is hard to buy for or you haven’t had time to think about what she might like, a jewellery box or clutch will be a welcome addition to her wardrobe.

Mothers are often so occupied that they don’t have time to think about purchasing little luxuries for themselves. A jewellery box is a special way for her to store or carry her jewellery with her. The Valerie Jewellery Box comes in a pretty love heart shape and has a luxe velvet exterior. It also has an elasticated compartment for small rings and earrings and a large main compartment for the rest of her jewels.

When it comes to occasion dressing, the party handbag is often left as an afterthought. So, she’ll love having a go-to clutch in her wardrobe. The Macy Woven Clutch is an elegant piece that she can use to elevate any outfit.

A gift card is also an easy Mother’s Day gift idea if you don’t have time to wait for your delivery or would prefer to let her choose something for herself. 

Since style is personal, Louenhide has a variety of Mother’s Day gift vouchers that she can redeem online. 

You can also select a value that’s within your budget, making a Louenhide gift card an affordable gift idea for a mother that’s hard to buy for.
