Make Mother’s Day with an alternative gift

Mother’s Day is the time to show the most important lady in your life just how great she is. Pamper her, treat her and shower her with gifts.
But for every mum that loves to receive flowers, chocolates and beauty products there’s another who wants something a little different. Is your mum one of them? We’ve got some ideas for alternative gifts this year to make sure your gift gets a grin not a groan…
What to buy… an adventurous mum
The choice is endless if your mum likes to try new things and is a bit of a daredevil. A gift experience will give her a day out to remember for years to come. Some of our favourites include off road taster driving, deluxe high ropes adventure and the cowboy trail ride.
What to buy… an arty mum
Anyone who appreciates a bit of artistic flair is bound to be a fan of our personalised art gifts. The trick is to pick a photo that’s really memorable for your mum, either that or make sure it’s a massive picture of your face – she’ll constantly be reminded which child is the best at buying presents. (Oh and there’s 10% off all orders for Mothers Day-use voucher code debsmot10 until 6 March )
What to buy… a crafty mum
Resourceful, creative… sound like your mum? We love this cosmetic making workshop or design your own perfume experience which are bound to appeal to her. Or if you’ve not got much to spend you could take a leaf out of her book and make her something – it’s the thought that counts after all.
What to buy… a sporty mum
A pair of shoes that help to tone as she walks… perfect! My mum keeps asking about these ‘Easy Tone’ trainers from Reebok so I reckon that’s her sorted. If your mum’s a yoga bunny we’ve got a whole section full of yoga clothes and accessories that will make her day.
If your mum’s idea of a game needs a graphics card rather than lawn bowls then fuel her passion with a gadget like the Nintendo DSi, they are fun for any age and half my mum’s friends have got them.
If you still need some inspiration for fabulous gifts with a difference then look no further than the gifts section on debenhams.com – just use the ‘Shop by…’ tool on the left for instant inspiration that fits your budget.
