1. A Travel Mug: For the coffee & tea lovers

Mother's Day gift

One of our most popular products at any gift-giving season are our travel mugs. Citron travel mugs are an ideal present as they come in 4 different colours, and they can fit into most car holders and coffee machines. Whether your mum is rushing into work, running errands or taking a leisurely stroll, an insulated travel mug ensures her drinks stay at the perfect temperature wherever she goes. If she loves a hot beverage, our mugs will keep her tea warm for up to 6 hours, and if she fancies a homemade iced-latte, it will stay cold for up to 7 hours. To add that extra special touch, all of our travel mugs can be personalised for FREE. Add her name, a nickname you have for her or even a loving phrase about her being a great mum.

Great item that keeps my drink hot for ages! So many people have asked about my mug and where it was from so I’ve passed along the details of Citron!! Will probably be buying these for all my friends in future too!



2. A Water Bottle: For the hydrated queens

 Insulated water bottle

There may be one essential gift that every mum deserves and needs, and that’s a reusable water bottle. An insulated water bottle is more than just convenient, it’s a statement of eco-conscious living and also self-care. For busy mums who are constantly on the move, staying hydrated is paramount, and a Citron water bottle will ensure they have access to a refreshing cold sip of water wherever they go to prevent dehydration. This year we launched a range of new water bottles that come in so many gorgeous colours that we know your mum will just love. All of our bottles come with an extra straw, as well as a brush to clean them with, what more could you need? A water bottle is a practical and thoughtful gift that your mum will use everyday, reminding her of your love with every refreshing sip she takes. 

I absolutely love this bottle! Not only does it encourage me to stay hydrated throughout the day, but it's also easy to carry to work. Thank you Citron!



3. A Picnic Bag: For the outdoor lover

Picnic recipes

As Spring approaches, thoughts turn to outdoor adventures like picnics in the park and outings on sunny days. Whether mum will be exploring woodland trails, lounging at the beach, or simply enjoying her local park, a reliable bag is essential for storing all you mums picnic essentials. Our stylish and practical picnic bags offer ample space for delicious snacks and drinks, complete with a convenient shoulder strap and sturdy leather handles for comfortable carrying. Fingers crossed it's sunny this Mother’s Day, which would be a perfect day to kick start the picnic season with mum's favourite treats. 



4. A Food Jar: For the homemade chefs

Insulated food container

At Citron we have two sizes of food jars that any mum would love. Our 250ml jar is our smallest, and it’s perfect for adding her breakfast in the morning, or snacks for the afternoon. Our larger 400ml jar is the perfect size for adding in her lunch so she can enjoy a homemade meal whilst out and about. If she needs some help thinking of tasty recipes to add into her food jar, we have 4 delicious breakfast recipes here  and 5 delicious lunch-time recipes here

Even though we are slowly moving into the warmer months, sometimes all your mum will want is a warm breakfast or lunch to keep her going. Warm food is more than just comforting, it also helps to boost your metabolism rate, enhancing digestion and nutrient uptake for overall wellness. So how do our food jars keep the food warm? Thanks to its triple-wall insulation and leak-proof lid, it vacuum-seals the food inside, keeping your meal warm for up to 6 hrs and cold for 7 hrs. 

Looks smart, works extremely well and holds the perfect amount of food!


5. A Lunch Box: For the on-the-go mum

Adult lunch boxes

Have you thought of getting your mum a lunch box this Mother’s Day? If you haven’t, let’s tell you why it would make the perfect gift! All Citron lunch boxes are different from your usual lunch box, and that’s because all of them have been designed like a bento box. In our boxes, you will notice that there are several different compartments, meaning she can keep her sweet and savoury food separate, without having to wrap them all up in cling film or pop them in different food containers. There are 2 adult-sized lunch boxes for you to choose from, and they come in a variety of different colours and patterns. If you opt for the grand-lunch box, it will come with a small food jar and a sauce container, and if you opt for our bento box, it comes with its own cutlery set. Now all you have to do is decide which one you think she would love more!

Great for keeping everything you need for lunch. No need for separate bags/boxes. I love it.


Don’t forget to use our discount code ‘MUMSDAYTREAT’ for 20% off all of our full-priced products. The Citron team hopes our practical and thoughtful gift list has given you some inspiration to surprise your mum. Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mums out there!
