Christmas Gifts for Mum - Reasons We Love You

Reasons We Love You

It’s easy to say ‘I love you’ to your mum. But it’s a phrase we throw around so casually nowadays – signing off every phone conversation with it – that it loses some of the meaning behind it.

Reasons We Love You is an opportunity to articulate why you love mum. From the profound, such as ‘You taught me to stand up for others’, or sentimental; ‘You still have all the trophies I got as a kid’, to the lighthearted; ‘Every time you visit, you organize one of my closets or shelves!’. Highlighting all the reasons she is loved, valued and appreciated will make a touching Christmas gift for mum – whether from just yourself or the entire family.

Christmas Gifts for Mum - Spell It Out

Spell It Out

Ask Mum what she really wants for Christmas and chances are, she’d much rather have you call or visit more often, than whatever’s in the gift-wrapped yellow box from Selfridges that you had in mind. But living busy lives, that’s not always possible. Which is why photo gifts make such a fitting alternative; they’re uniquely personal, evoke a memory and celebrate relationships.

Spell It Out allows you to combine this with heartfelt sentiments – something that reminds mum what she means to you – to create a truly meaningful Christmas gift for Mum that she can look at over and over again. For when you can’t be there to say it in person.

Christmas Gifts for Mum - A Gift Every Hour

A Gift Every Hour

Mums work pretty hard on Christmas Day. It’s no mean feat pulling off a culinary feast for twenty guests – all the while supervising aunty Jean’s sherry intake, ignoring granny’s comments about tidiness and smiling politely when your sister’s boyfriend announces he’s a gluten-intolerant vegan. So why not treat her throughout the day?

A Gift Every Hour is a fun way to give mum 12 smaller presents; one to be opened every hour. Include a mix of gifts with sentimental value, homemade items and practical things you know she’ll get use out of (but that, on their own, would feel too small to give as her main present). Whether it’s a coupon to get out of doing the washing up, a surprise video message from a long-distance friend or a photo calendar with a different picture of your siblings through the years for each month, it’s a lovely way to remind her how much she’s appreciated. And it might just keep her sane until the in-laws go home!

Christmas Gifts for Mum - The Usual Suspects

The Usual Suspects

Christmas is not usually a time when honesty is the best policy. Whether it’s pulling your ‘just what I always wanted face’, complimenting mum on her deliciously moist Turkey; that doesn’t feel at all like swallowing razor blades or biting your tongue when granny asks why your sis isn’t married yet. But The Usual Suspects is a great way to poke a little fun at your crazy relatives with a tongue-in-cheek family portrait that gets them to own their funny or annoying character traits and confess whatever shady behaviour they’re most guilty of.

Whether dad is ‘The Thrifty One’ guilty of being a ‘Central Heating Tyrant’, mum is ‘The Control Freak’ who confesses to being a ‘Helicopter Mum’, or your brother is ‘The Nerdy One’ who ‘Corrects Everyone’s Grammar’, mum will definitely appreciate this honest family portrait of her very own Most Wanted.
