50+ Gift ideas for mums (sisters, aunties and girlfriends) 2023

Gift ideas for mums | Beanstalk Mums

Women are a pretty easy bunch to buy for. But it’s nice to take it up a notch and get something a bit special or different. Cue: This article with gifts ideas for mums.

Whatever the occasion (hell, does there even need to be one!) we have some great gift ideas for mums, sisters, aunties, girls or any other wonderful women in your life.

And, just to keep you on track, here are some pointers to consider before you buy for your fabulous female.

What to think about before you buy for the lady in your life

  • What does she like doing most in the world? Buy her something to help her do that! Maybe a good book to read, a voucher to her fav restaurant, or a silk eye mask if she is a mum and her favourite pastime is sleeping!
  • Has she hinted at something she might like? Us women are very good at doing that … listen hard.
  • Is there something she has always wanted to do but has never got around to. Perhaps she wants to be more green fingered? In which case, you could get her a starter kit to grow flowers or herbs, or (one of our favourites) a bee pollination kit.
  • If the lady you are buying for is always rushing around and never takes time for herself, get her something to make her stop and chill. Think self-care kits, a calming colouring-in book or an essential oil diffuser with scents to help her relax.
  • What are her hobbies and can you help her take them to the next level? For example, if she likes cooking, you could get her a cheese, chocolate or yoghurt making kit.
  • Think about your own relationship with her and what you do together, then buy her a gift based on that. Say, your relationship is social and involves meeting up and enjoying a drink together, then it would be thoughtful to buy her something related to this, such as a wine cooler, a cocktail shaker or a set of glasses for her favourite tipple.
