Your Mothering Sunday gift guide
Buying presents for loved ones is supposed to be fun, but sometimes, it can be stressful. We all want to spoil our mums and find the perfect gift to show them just how special they are. It’s not always easy to make decisions. This is why we’ve put together a handy guide to the best treats for your mum. In this ultimate gift guide, we’ll share some brilliant ideas to make shopping for Mother’s Day a breeze.
For the outdoor adventurer
Does your mum, step-mum or mother-in-law love to spend time in the great outdoors? Do they live for action and adventure, or are they often found exploring country lanes with a canine companion in tow? If so, there are some fabulous gifts to choose from, including:
The Wax Walking Jacket
A wax walking jacket is a perfect present for people who love to spend time outside, those who enjoy walking, rambling and hiking and mums on the go. Walking jackets are comfortable and hard-wearing but they’re also stylish. Glide effortlessly from town to country without worrying about adding layers or having to pop home to get changed.
Our top wax walking jacket selections include:
Ladies Landowner Wax Walking Jacket:
- Available in Dundee check, tricolour, and sage
Newmarket Hooded Wax Jacket
- Available in navy, khaki, and burnt sand.
The Quilted Gilet
Gilets are an excellent addition to any outdoor wardrobe. They add an extra layer to enhance warmth and comfort and they cater to all seasons and conditions. The quilted design is stylish and on-trend. With this beautiful gift, your mum can enjoy a versatile, practical piece, which can be worn alone with a long-sleeved t-shirt or jumper or with a coat or jacket to brave wintry conditions. This is a great investment piece that will take them from winter to summer.
Our top pick for Mothering Sunday is:
Moorland Quilted Gilet
- Available in petrol with a beautiful sand lining.

A must for sporty individuals and those who enjoy roaming around the countryside and exploring national parks, forests and rugged coastlines, beanies help you stay warm when there’s a chill in the air.
For the fashionista
Is your mum a fan of fashion? Do you love to share clothes or is she known for her sense of style? If you’re shopping for a fashionista this Mothering Sunday, there are some stunning pieces available. From sophisticated workwear and formal outfits for special occasions to everyday essentials with a luxe edge, here are our favourite gifts for Mother’s Day:
The Arena Blazer

The Arena Blazer is the ultimate addition to every wardrobe. A hugely versatile piece, which will elevate any look, this tailored tweed jacket oozes class and sophistication.

From dressing up for dinner or a day at the races to meeting up with friends for a coffee or going to meetings, this is the perfect finishing touch. Made from 100% British wool with a decadent satin lining and two front pockets, the blazer has a flattering fitted shape.
Who doesn’t love a jumper? Knitwear is a fantastic gift idea for mums and grandmas who love to feel and look great. The key to finding the perfect jumpers and cardigans is choosing items that tick both the style and comfort boxes. You want to be able to snuggle up and stay warm while also feeling amazing in your new knits. Knitwear is versatile and practical, especially in the cooler months, and it caters for all occasions. From everyday basics teamed with jeans and boots or trainers to chic jumpers that go with tailored trousers and skirts, there’s a piece for everyone.
Some of our favourite Mothering Sunday knits include:
The crew neck jumper
- Available in black, charcoal, navy, dark forest, mustard, grey, and brown mélange
Crew neck jumpers are a staple wardrobe item. Elevate your everyday look with a diamond panel crew neck jumper made from a lambswool blend. The beauty of this piece is that it is suitable for every occasion and outfit. Wear alone with jeans or chinos, add an extra layer under a quilted gilet or jacket or a heavy-duty coat for winter walks, or team with a blouse and smart trousers, or a skirt for work.
The Wool Fedora
- Available in camel, navy, khaki, brown, and black
Nothing finishes an outfit like a wool fedora. A classic country hat, this 100% wool fedora will add a touch of elegance to any ensemble. Adorned with a removable feather decoration, this is an excellent gift for fashionable mums. Ideal for the races, country walks, pub lunches and days out with friends and family, this hat looks fabulous and it will also help to keep the cold at bay on wet, grey and breezy days.
- Available in blue-grey tartan, mustard brown tartan, cream red tartan, dark grey check, and black fuchsia
Wrapping up warm and staying toasty doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style points with a pair of gorgeous gloves. If your mum is a style icon who likes to be outdoors or ensure they have their accessories on point, a new pair of gloves is an excellent acquisition.
The Finishing Touches
Accessories are an amazing gift option for Mothering Sunday. Not only can they make an outfit and offer golden opportunities to customise looks and make them unique, but they also serve a purpose. From layering up for extra warmth on a brisk spring walk to adding a pop of colour to an understated casual look, there’s always a place for accessories.
