Mother’s Day is the perfect chance to appreciate one of the most important people in your life. What better way to do that than with a thoughtful gift?
We’ve put together this list of some fantastic Mother’s Day gift ideas. We’ve also taken a look at how people from around the world celebrate this special occasion.
Mother’s Day Around the World
We all know that Mother’s Day is a chance to pay tribute to our beloved mums. Several different countries celebrate it, though in the UK the exact date jumps about a bit. This is because we tie it to Easter, which is in turn tied to the movement of the moon. In 2020, the UK celebrates Mother’s Day on the 22nd of March.
For other countries, Mother’s Day always falls on the second Sunday of May, and each one approaches it a little differently. Over in France, Mother’s Day only became an official date in 1950! That didn’t bother the French, though, who’d celebrated it long before this happened.
Other countries have their own Mother’s Day traditions. In Ethiopia, Mother’s Day is a three-day feast that brings families together. Children have an important part to play; they bring ingredients for a traditional hash recipe. While girls bring cheese, butter, vegetables and spices, boys bring meat—either lamb or beef. In Bangladesh, mothers receive gifts in recognition of their contributions, whether this is to their family, society or the nation as a whole.
Over in the Punjab Hindus celebrate a similar festival called Durga Puja, which honours the goddess of mothers. Stretching over ten days, people take the chance to visit mothers they know amongst both friends and family. They also bring along home-cooked foods to enjoy.
However you celebrate Mother’s Day, our new Mother’s Day gifts are the perfect way to honour mothers around the world.

3. Mother’s Day Recipes
Give your Mother’s Day a personal touch with the help of these special recipes. Each one uses our fantastic Regal products to make them as tasty as possible.
Peri Peri Sauce
Our Peri Peri Sauce is a great way to create a fantastic dish for Mum. Give these peri peri chicken mozzarella stack with ‘macho’ peas a try. You can make it with halal mozzarella if needs be. Find our Peri Peri Sauce on this page.
Sweet Popcorn Cake
Sweet popcorn cake is a very popular idea, with lots of different recipes to choose from. Salted caramel is something of a favourite right now; take a look at this lovely chocolate and salted caramel popcorn cake recipe if you’d like to give it a try.
Don’t fancy baking? This no-bake popcorn cake recipe is another solid option. This sticky, gooey recipe is excellent for children, and gives them a chance to be really creative. Try adding chocolate or gelatin-free marshmallows to mix it up a bit.
You can find all the sweet popcorn you need (as well as salted or mixed varieties) in our Snacks section.
4. The Love Box
The perfect duo is back by popular demand! The perfect way to say “I love you” on Mother’s Day is with our tasty Cake Rusk and Pink Chai, which we’ve combined into one thoughtful gift, known as The Love Box. It’s also a great incentive to have a catch-up with Mum over afternoon tea.
5. Homemade Plant Pot
Flowers are a Mother’s Day favourite, but having a few plants around the house is a great way to brighten things up. Why not present your mum with a hand-painted plant pot? Use her favourite colours to really make an impact.
If you want an alternative to Mother’s Day food gifts, you could always turn the plant pot into an activity pot! Write down ideas for activities you think your mum would enjoy—watch a movie, go for a walk, make a time capsule—fold them up and fill the pot with them. They’re a great way of ensuring you spend time together in an entertaining way.
6. A Classic Mother’s Day Gift Idea
Regal’s Classics Sharing Box is the ultimate nostalgic gift for any mother. Remind them of all their family favourites with a fantastic collection of treats, snacks and much more. By purchasing these products as a gift box for £9.99, you can make a 25% saving on the combined price. Don’t forget about our next-day delivery options, either!
