Mother’s Day is fast approaching, have you got your mum a gift yet? Although we should show our appreciation to our mums everyday of the week, Mother’s Day is a great day to spoil our mums and show how grateful we are all for the amazing things they do for us.
As parents ourselves, we know how hectic life can get, and we know how our children are often prioritised. That’s why, as a lifestyle brand, we have created innovative and stylish products not just for children but also for adults. Our adult range includes a number of functional products that are perfect for busy mums on the go. If you’re wondering what Citron products to choose for your mum this year, here are our top 6 gifts that we know they will love! To add a special extra touch to your gift, our products can also be personalised for free - whether you want to add their name or a nickname, adding a personal touch will be sure to put a smile on their face.
1. Coffee mugs: For the tea or coffee lover
If your mum is anything like us, we cannot function in the morning without one of them, but we don’t always have time to relax with a cup of tea or coffee before we drop the children off at school or go into work. With our best travel mugs, your mum will never miss her favourite vanilla latte from her Nespresso machine again because she will be able to fit it in her travel mug. Our coffee mugs will fit under the majority of coffee machines and will keep your drink warm for 6 hours or cold for 12 hours if you feel like an iced latte. Buying them a travel mug will also save them spending ridiculous amounts at Costa or Starbucks everyday as they are reusable! One huge mum perk - they are dishwasher safe so no mugs will be left in the sinks.
2. Water bottles: For the active mums
When mums are running around like headless chickens trying to sort out their own life, their childrens and their work life, they sometimes forget about simple needs like keeping hydrated. Adults should drink 6-8 glasses of water a day, and it’s often easier to remember to drink that amount when you have a large water bottle that you can take with you on the go.

Not only do the Citron water bottles come in different sizes, they also come in a range of different colours to suit your mum's style, and what would be better than a personalised water bottle? All our large water bottles come with two different lids, whether they would prefer a lid with a straw or a screw top, they can choose when you give it to them as the bottles come with it.
3. Food Jars: For the breakfast on the go mums
Although research has shown that breakfast isn’t actually the most important meal of the day, it’s still important as it will set you up for the day ahead. Some of our favourite breakfasts are overnight oats, yoghurt and granola and fresh fruit - all of which can be stored in our food jars. At Citron we have 2 different sized food flasks; our 250ml ones are perfect for taking your breakfast on the go. If your mum is an eco-warrior, no need to worry - our food jars are made from stainless steel which is one of the most eco-friendly metals and the jar can be reused everyday. Both of our food jars can also be personalised for free to add that extra special touch. Some of our favourite personalisations that we have made so far are ‘yum yum’, ‘Joey doesn’t share food' and ‘coffee lover’. What personalisation could you add to the food jars to put a smile on your mum's face?
4. Multi-purpose bag: For the new mums
Have any of you watched Mary Poppins? If you have, then you will know a Mary Poppins bag can fit a lot of things in, and that is what our multi-purpose bag does! When the Citron team created this bag, they not only thought about style, they also thought about practicality. No matter whether you’re packing mealtime essentials, toys, clothes or personal hygiene products in this bag, the number of pockets and compartments means you can neatly put everything away, and be able to find it easily as well! Our bag also doubles up as a great maternity hospital bag if your mum or someone you love is expecting a little one, with a pocket made exclusively for wipes, changing mat, 4 pockets for bottles and even an insulated bottle holder to keep liquids at room temperature. Made from BPA-free material this bag can be used beyond the baby maternity bag years by the entire family, which is why it makes a perfect gift for a mum to be or a family.
5. Picnic bag: For the adventurous mums
Spring time is around the corner and that can mean only one thing, picnics in the park and days out in the sun. Whether you’re taking a lot of walks in the woods, going to the seaside when the sun comes out or walking down to your local park - you need a bag to keep all the delicious picnic food in. Our picnic bags are stylish and practical - they have lots of space for packing all your delicious snacks and drinks, and they come with both a shoulder strap and leather handles which makes it very comfortable to carry. If you’re lucky, this Mother’s Day will be a bright and sunny day and you can even start off the picnic season on the day by filling the bag with all of her favourite food - if the weather isn’t great, an indoor picnic is always a wholesome idea as well.
6. Bento Boxes: For the commuters
Does your mum regularly commute into work or organise fun days out? If so, food is key for keeping the energy levels up. At Citron we have created a bento lunch box that is split into 3 different compartments making it perfect for adding in snacks, or splitting up your lunch. Even better, our bento boxes match with our other products so if your mum is big on coordinating, we have got you sorted. For some extra mum points, our bento boxes come with a matching cutlery set so they won’t have to take any cutlery from the kitchen and they are dishwasher and microwave safe (will need to take the lid off).
