Gifts for Mums Who’ve Lost Children

Of course, no present will ease the loss of a child but there are thoughtful gifts you can give to women who are trying to cope with pregnancy loss or the loss of a child.

Spa Treatments, a spa near her

Show the mum who’s lost her child that it’s okay to look after herself, especially during difficult times.  She may wish to go to the spa alone or perhaps you could join her.  Many spas offer deals and treatment packages throughout the year.

Hive books: Let her escape in a book and support her high street

Hive’s online bookshop has a huge collection of fiction and nonfiction books across genres.  A proportion of each sale goes towards an independent bookshop in the UK, so choose a bookshop local to your loved mum.  Choose a book that will have her giggling or pick a book that will help her develop coping strategies to deal with grief.

Gifts for mums who’ve been loved for years

Gifts that keep on giving

Books That Matter subscription box

If your mum is a voracious reader, she’ll love this book subscription box from Books That Matter.  Curated by women, for women, each box contains a book written by an inspiring female author. Your loved mum will also receive gifts from female owned brands and self-care gifts like expert skincare, snuggly socks, vegan treats and so much more!

Starting from £17 as a one month subscription.

Freddie’s Flowers subscription box

There’s no surprise as to why Freddie’s Flowers is so popular.  Delivered weekly (with the flexibility to skip any delivery) each box contains fresh, hand cut flowers and a guide to create a beautiful flower arrangement.  In no time, your mum will become a pro at flower arranging.  In fact, I’ve just overheard my mum beaming about her Freddie’s Flowers to my sister, “Look at this sensational bouquet of colours and textures!”  I’m not kidding…

Currently, the first two boxes are half price at £12.50 each.
