A signature scent is perfect if you’re looking for classic Christmas gifts for mums. Choose a brand that you love or something you can wear on any occasion, like a fresh, subtle fragrance or a refined floral. Bonus points if the bottle looks like a work of art.

Hampers are brilliant Christmas gifts for mums because they’re completely customisable. Send a hamper packed with an assortment of decadent delicacies to the foodie mum, or a pamper hamper filled to the brim with self-care products to the mum who could use a day off.

An adult toy is an unexpected but welcome Christmas gift for a mother who’s in sore need of a pleasure break. There are many options to choose from, but something that’s lightweight, has large buttons and has multiple intensity levels is a great place to start whether you’re a newbie or a pro.
