Not On The High Street Christmas Gift Guide - Mums

Am I the only one who finds it really hard to find their mum a Christmas present? I've already given her all my good ideas the past few years! When I ask her what she would like, the only answer I ever get is 'I do not need anything' so stressful! Anyway Not On The High Street has always been one of my favourite websites to get presents on and it definitely did not disappoint in this search! I just love personal or personalised presents, they just seem so thought out.

The idea of giving my mum a personalised photo album (1) and filling it with photos seems perfect and I think that she would love it. Who doesn't like receiving photo gifts that bring back memories? The photo frame (8) also goes along this lines! This one you can even personalise by writing a little message. My mum loves a glass of wine hence the wine glass (5), I recon any lover of wine would be glad to receive this and find the humor in it, same goes for the mug (3). It also comes in different colours and the word 'wine' can be changed out for things such as tea, champagne and prosecco. Initial necklaces (2)  have to be my all time favourite present to give, they are just so personal and are perfect for parents who are proud to show the initials of their children. Similar to this is the family tree (6), I just think that this looks so clean cut and would make a great addition to a home. If your mum has an iPad (I think you can get it for a kindle too) and loves reading books then this case is perfect (7)! The buyer gets to choose which design to choose and they all relate to a book: these include ones such as To Kill A Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby and The Secret Garden. All of the designs are gorgeous! Another gift which I think a mum would love is the Dear Mum book (4) in which questions are asked and she can fill in all of her memories. Definitely something that can be kept in the family for years and would be so lovely to read! Finally who ddoesn'tlove a pair of luxury socks?(9)




Do you know what you are getting your mum this year?

  11. My mum is sooo hard to buy for as well, but she's always up for writing me a detailed list of what she wants - I remember she wrote me a list for Mother's Day once ahahahahaha - obviously doesn't trust the presents I would choose! Love these ideas though, they are lovely!
