Gift Ideas

This year, Mother’s Day is on Sunday 11 March. The modern Mother’s Day tradition is to pamper our mothers with gifts and cards as a way of thanking them for all the hard work and love they put in to looking after us as children.

All UOE Stores have a range of greetings cards, gifts, wrapping paper, sticky tape and padded envelopes, which you can use to buy your present and wrap it up. If you live a long way from home, you can also head to the Post Office counter to send it to her. Think of us as a one-stop shop for Mother’s Day!

To help you decide on the perfect present for your Mum, here are our top five ideas:

Happy Jackson

One of our top-selling brands is the funky Happy Jackson range of mugs, gifts and stationery. The bright colours and cheerful slogans are bound to raise a smile and a happy memory whenever your Mum uses it.

Laura Ashley writing set

Some mothers just love Laura Ashley and if your Mum likes writing old-fashioned letters rather than sending emails, this could be the perfect gift.


A really good quality hard-back notebook is one of life’s little pleasures, and our stores all stock one of the best brands, Moleskine. If your Mum is always making notes, or maybe she’s an aspiring diarist, this nice notebook is a lovely way of keeping her thoughts and ideas together.

Queen for a day

If you want to make Mother’s Day a crowning success, give your Mum a giggle with an inflatable crown. Of course, if you then want to treat her like a queen by waiting on her hand and foot all day, we’re sure she’ll appreciate it, but we can’t help you with that!

Her favourite photos

If you want to put a bit more effort into your mum’s present, why not go through your photos and put together some of the ones you know she’ll love onto a USB stick. Then bring it into a UOE Store and use our Kodak photo printing services to print them out – don’t worry if you’ve never used one before, just ask any member of staff and they’ll be happy to help.
