6. Trinket Tray
Mums are busy people, but they also spend a lot of time collecting meaningful things over the years. Whether it’s that ring your Dad bought her when they first met, or a bracelet you picked out as a child that never fit but she couldn’t get rid of anyway. The point is, she has a lot of trinkets, even if you don’t know about them, so a trinket tray is a perfect, thoughtful gift that’ll make her feel special on her birthday! As an added bonus, it also says I love you, so every time she looks at it, she’ll be reminded of you!
7. Flower Tea Cup
She might not have a lot of time to sit down with a good ol’ cuppa, but when she does, she’ll appreciate drinking from a flower tea cup as beautiful as this. It also means she’ll think of you every time she’s relaxing with a hot beverage, so you’ll be in her thoughts lots and she’ll appreciate how much effort you put into her birthday gift.

It’s thoughtful, it’s budget friendly, and it’s definitely unique. We love this one, and she will too!
10. Greatest Mum Apron
Your Mum’s the greatest mum in the world, right? All mums are to their children. So why not pick her up something that says exactly that, right across the front! She probably also enjoys cooking, or at the very least has to spend a fair bit of time doing it whether she likes it or not, so this greatest Mum apron makes sense. It’ll keep her clean as she cooks and remind her how much she means to you. What’s not to like?
11. Body Weight Bathroom Scale
This one might seem like a random choice, but believe us, if you include a note explaining that this isn’t about weight but about health, then she will understand why you’ve picked her up some bathroom scales. By giving her the tools to look after herself and care about keeping herself in shape, you’re actually showing how much you care for her, because you want her to be healthy and live a full, happy life alongside you. Trust us, if you handle this gift with care, it could be one of her favourites and it’ll certainly show her how much she means to you.
12. Resistance Band Kit
Want to keep the fitness and healthy lifestyle theme going? Then pick up these resistance band kits so the two of you can spend time working out and feeling great together. It’s always hard to take on a fitness journey alone, but if you’ve got somebody who loves and cares for you helping you out, then everything is easier. Use this as an excuse for the two of you to workout together and spend even more quality time with one another. It has two benefits: nurturing your health and nurturing your relationship with your Mum!
13. Mini Massage Gun
Now you’ve worked hard together, you should reward your Mum with something to take away all the aches and pains of exercising. Even if she hasn’t been exercising, then a mini massage gun is still an excellent choice as a birthday gift idea for Mum. It’ll help her relax after a tough day and it’s great for helping your muscles relax after working out. What better way is there to say ‘I love you Mum’ than with a gift that shows you want her to be comfortable? This is gonna be one of the most practical and unique birthday gifts for mum.
14. Jade Roller For Face
Who doesn’t want to look beautiful forever? Using a jade roller to massage your face is a great way to make your face more firm, and therefore keep you looking your best for longer. Some Mums really care about getting older, and for some Mums it can be difficult when their birthday comes around because it reminds them of getting older. So, help them feel great by picking them up a jade roller that they can use to feel great every day. It shows how much you care about her feelings, and that’ll certainly remind her how much you love her.
15. Scented Candle Set
All Mums really want is a scented candle and a night to themselves. Ask any one of them, and they’ll probably say the same thing. A great way to encourage that is to buy a scented candle set. Nothing is more relaxing than a scented candle in the evening after a long day, and this set is perfect because the four different candles are sure to have something that your Mum will love. Plus, the four candles give her four evenings of peace! What could be better than that for your busy Mum?
16. Mama Bear Cushion Set
All Mums are as protective of their children as a Mama bear is over their cubs, so show your appreciation of their fierce love and protection with an adorable Mama Bear cushion set like this one! It’s a really cute cushion set and it will look great on your Mum’s sofa. We just know that she’ll feel proud to show it off to any visitors too, and she’ll be even prouder when she gets to explain that it was bought for her by you too!
17. Thank You For Helping Me Grow Planter
We love this planter because it has two meanings. First, you’re thanking your Mum for helping you grow, and it’s a really meaningful way of doing that. But second, you’re showing how much you appreciate her by providing her with a planter that she can nurture and care for and be reminded of you every time she does. Whatever plant she puts in it will be special because it will be something to remember you by, and what’s more precious to a mother than preparing this unique birthday gift for mum?
18. Cute Coffee Mug for mum
This coffee mug is adorably designed, but it’s hilarious too, and your Mum will smile every time she takes it out to drink from it. If you and your Mum have the sort of relationship where you can joke together and have a great time, then this tumbler is the perfect way to honour that and we just know she’ll love it!
Sometimes Mums just want to feel glamorous, and what better way is there to do that than with a silk scarf? This one is perfect because it looks luxurious but it’ll also keep her warm in the winter months when she is running her errands or heading to work. It’ll also be special because whenever she receives a compliment for it (and she will, because it’s stunning) she’ll be able to say that you bought it for her as a special birthday gift!
20. Birthday Card
Finally, there’s no better way to say ‘Mama I love you’ than coming right out and saying it, right? There’s no better gift to her than hearing you say you love her, so write it down in a special birthday card like this one.

This is gonna to be a favorite and unique birthday gifts for mum.
