Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Mums and Toddlers. Lifestyle writer Jenny Conlon looks at the best presents for Mother’s Day which mum and toddlers can enjoy together. It’s unlikely you’re going to be able to keep gifts away from toddlers so you might as well have something you can both enjoy.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and this year it takes place on Sunday 22 March (also my birthday!!). Instead of a present for just Mum this year, why not get one that Mum and their toddlers can enjoy together. Mother’s Day is just one day of the year but the below gift ideas can last all year long so let’s delve right…
Let’s explore the best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Mums and Toddlers
Mummy Meagz Rocky Road
If you’re looking for a sweet treat for all to share this Mother’s Day, I can highly recommend the Mummy Meagz vegan Rocky Road bars. They’re truly delicious and let’s face it, us Mums need all the energy we can get to keep ploughing through the day. There are no nuts or fruit yet in these bad boys yet they have that crunch and hit the chocolate spot. There’s also no nuts, eggs, dairy or gluten and believe me, they still taste dreamy.
I road tested a piece of the bar on my 16 month old daughter and she just loved it. Each of these bars is handmade. Not alone that, their packaging is so distinctive with its bright pink striped wrapping. They’re now available from Holland and Barrett so everyone can taste this little piece of heaven in a pink foil wrapper. The Mummy Meagz company was founded by a mother and daughter duo. Meagan and Willow Boyle so it couldn’t be a more apt gift this Mother’s Day.

Plant Pet Club
If like me you love plants but struggle to keep them alive then this is the ideal gift. Plant Pet Club is designed as a programme for beginners and busy people who would like to discover a new hobby. It starts with the plants that anyone can keep alive!
Then as your confidence grows, you’ll receive plants that require more attention. What a nice way to spend some quality time with the small people in your life. For Mother’s day, why not treat Mum to their Flowers and Fragrance – Gardenia. They’ve advised that Gardenia is simple to grow if you meet a few of their basic needs. This plant will eventually develop stunning cream flowers. It’s a blooming great gift idea for any Mum out there!
Tinker and Fix
If you’re looking for something unique, Tinker and Fix have you covered. They’ve got a stack of gift ideas for the Mum who likes to tinker and fix, grow, make and mend. Instead of giving flowers, why not try one of their secateurs or flower scissors which gives you an excuse to get out in the garden with the kids and to inspire them to be outside.
Louise, one half of the husband and wife Tinker and Fix team, began gardening when their son was a toddler and she swears by a good pair of secateurs as well as the brilliant Carhartt overalls and aprons which mean you’ll never need to worry about ruining your clothes when you’re in the garden! One thing that’s new for Mother’s Day is their amazing pinking shears. Perfect for quick costumes (snip off the bottom of trousers legs and voila, instant pirate trousers).
Calm Balm Multi-Purpose Herbal Salve
Life as a Mama can be tough at times and stress levels can increase on the daily. On the tough days, why not reach for a little pot of magic. Calm Balm is filled with skin nourishing salve. It’s basically an all round wonderbalm if you ask me.
The calm balm can be used as a massage balm, massage into temples as a meditation aid, rub into pulse points as solid perfume or simply apply to soothe dry or irritated skin. I feel like when we need to take a chill pill, we could all do with a calm balm in our lives. This little pot of magic hails from Ireland and is created by Bodhi Blends. It’s fully organic and hand crafted in Dublin.
Use it with you little ones and let them have a little head massage and enjoy some relaxing pamper time together.
