7 Gifts Ideas For The Mother Of The Bride

Your wedding day is going to be without a doubt, the biggest day of your life. But there is another lady for whom this is a very special day, and that is your Mother. In fact, it’s probably one of her most important days since her own wedding day.

She is the one who has helped and supported you every step of the way as you planned your wedding. She has been there through all the good times, as well as through the tears and tantrums when things got a bit fraught.

So show your Mum just how much you love and appreciate her and everything she has done by giving her a very special gift. After all, she is the Mother of the Bride, and that’s an important role.

Here are just a few suggestions to get you thinking;

Mother And Daughter Spa Day

A visit to a spa is a perfect way for you and your Mother to share some quiet time together. It’s a chance to relax and unwind, and forget about the guest lists and the seating plans. All you need to do is lie back, relax and be pampered.

Gift of Jewellery

If you are thinking of giving your Mother a gift of jewellery, why not choose a quiet moment before the wedding to present it to her. That way she will be able to wear it on your wedding day. Just another way to let her know how special she is today.


Every woman loves a gift of perfume. But make it special by giving your Mum a perfume that she wouldn’t normally wear. Scents create memories, so every time she wears it, it will take her back to your perfect wedding day.

Keepsake Box

A beautiful embossed keepsake box is a wonderful present for any Mum’s dressing table, where she will see it every day. This gorgeous cream faux leather box is personalised with the words ‘Mother of the Bride’ on the top, and features a clasp of simulated pearls on gold coloured petals.

Picture Frame

A silver-plated picture frame is a gift that can be personalised by engraving, and inserting some carefully chosen photographs. This day will probably evoke memories of her own wedding day, so choose a frame that can display pictures of both yours and her wedding day.

Evening Bag

If you want to give your Mother something really special, then what could be better than a beautiful evening clutch bag. Take a look at this 1950s cream satin bag. Embellished with glass beaded flowers, this bag will be the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.

Don’t Forget Dad

This is also a very special day for your Dad. It’s the day he gives the responsibility of his daughter’s future happiness over to another man. So it’s nice to show him how much he means to you as you start your married life. So why not give your parents a treat they can enjoy after the wedding by booking them a romantic dinner, followed by an overnight stay in a luxurious hotel.

3 Ways To Make Your Wedding Unique
