Mother's Day gift guide 2021: The best gifts for every mum

With Mother’s Day hot on our heels (Sunday May 9th if you need a reminder!), it’s time to start deliberating and dabbling in gifting ideas. Mother’s Day serves as the perfect opportunity to celebrate the mother figure in our lives. Whether it was your first heartbreak, cheering you on from the sidelines at sport, helping with projects or just being your taxi driver for the better part of your life, they’ve never wavered from your side. 

Finding a gift that does justice to all of this though, is no easy feat. Flowers by the bunch and chocolate delicacies are traditional, fail-safe options, but they tire quickly. As it’s a new year, and with no looming lockdown limiting opportunities to shop, let’s change the narrative and say ‘I love you, mum’, through considered gifts. Think: new season bags, skincare, perfumes and of course, jewellery. 

Alongside breakfast in bed, consult Remix’s ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide for something special guaranteed to hit the spot…

Oh, and a heads up - stay tuned for our massive Mother's Day giveaway launching next week over on Remix's Instagram. It's going to be our biggest giveaway. Ever. So make sure you're following us!
