The Most Sentimental Last-minute Mother’s Day Gifts

The end of February usually comes sooner than expected, and before you know it we’ll be well into March, with Mother’s Day just around the corner. The more organised amongst us have probably already arranged a day out with the family, booked a meal at the nicest restaurant, a pamper at the most luxurious spa and, as such, are feeling rather for smug. For others, who have yet to organise such celebrations, the clock is ticking and time is running out for you to pull something truly special out of the bag.

Fear not, for here at Image Casting, we can help! We’ve decided to create a list of gifts, experiences and occasions perfect for the mum who deserves the world this March, and all of which can be organised within two weeks. These gifts are high in sentimental value, and for that reason are likely to go down a treat come the second Sunday of March. So, stop trawling the high street in search of inspiration, sit back, relax and find the perfect present from the comfort of your own home!

A Casting Voucher

While it might be slightly too late to arrange an actual cast for mothers to wake up to on the morning of 11th March, a voucher for one to be made will have a similar effect! Here at Image Casting, we sell a range of casting vouchers that can be redeemed at the convenience of the recipient, making them a versatile option for even the busiest of bodies. Vouchers are available for a pair of framed casts, a pair of freestanding casts, a pair of framed hands and feet or casts for twins, a holding hands cast or another combination that can be discussed in more detail when you contact us. Gift vouchers can be personalised and sent straight to the recipient, or sent to yourself to include in your own card. A particularly thoughtful gift for recent mothers or doting grandmothers, and one that’s sure to bring a smile to her face during that well-deserved breakfast in bed!

High Tea

A lot of the time, mum’s cherish Mother’s Day for the opportunity it provides them to spend quality time with their family; something that in today’s busy culture comes few and far between for many! Make the most of the day, and opt for something where you can all catch up; and no one has to do the dishes! One of the most popular trends of recent times is a high tea, and it’s not difficult to see why, with a pile of sweet treats, a pot of tea and an afternoon of indulgence playing a major part of the allure. A stress-free afternoon with unlimited sweet treats, bottomless tea and fantastic company is the order of the day, and the notion certainly won’t go underappreciated! Contact hotels and restaurants in your local area to find the perfect spot; a table with a view never goes amiss!

Drinks Tour

Every mum has a tipple of choice they turn to after a particularly stressful week, day or hour, and we’re sure they would jump at the chance of a kid-free afternoon to learn more about the drink. This doesn’t have to be redeemed on Mother’s Day itself if you’d rather spend it as a family, and is probably best cherished just the two of you, perhaps when the kids are at school, you can take a day off work or Grandparents step in to help! Most spirits will have distilleries not too far away from you, so contact them to enquire about tours, and think about transport; you may need to leave the wheels at home and hop on a train if a boozy afternoon lies ahead! You’ll be surprised at how much you learn about the spirits, and a fun afternoon with just the two of you might be exactly what she needs to re-energise. If she has different interests, there are various opportunities like this around when you think outside the box, and consider the things she always wanted to do!

Drink tasting


If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times; time flies when you have young children, and before you know it you’ll be forking out for driving lessons! Young families in particular, but parents with children of any age will always appreciate the chance to document the family at different stages to remember what life was like once upon a time! Again, the voucher can be presented on Mother’s Day morning and redeemed on another day, so you can still do the classic activities like meals out with extended families, a walk or whatever else you so desire! Once the photos are taken and you’ve decided on the photo to print, the delivery of the finished and framed product is likely to make her day all over again, making it the gift that keeps on giving!
