Christmas is a hectic time for mums as we go above and beyond to make sure our children have the perfect day.
But what about us?
We deserve a present too.

If you’re stuck for ideas, see our list of Christmas gifts for mums to buy them themselves.

Christmas gifts for mums to give themselves
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.

SEND YOURSELF A HAMPER
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
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.

A PERSONAL STYLIST
This Christmas, give fashionista mums the ultimate treat in the form of a personal stylist. A stylist will choose outfits that look amazeballs on you and ship it straight to your doorstep. We like Threadicated which lets you keep the clothes you love and return the ones you don’t.
