Mothers Day is creeping up on us(March 10th for those who don't know) and the shops are full of things for Mum.
Most mums i know would be happy with a card and a lie in but if you want to buy a little gift or do something nice for your mum then i have a few ideas based on little bits that i would like to receive.
Cath Kidston is always a winner for me. This little bowl(£4) would be lovely to keep trinkets in on your dressing table and the jug(£6) would be cute for flowers or make up brushes or of course to be used as a jug.
I'm not hugely into personalised bits or mum jewellery but i love the look of these fingerprint charm pendants and would definately wear one, the one pictured is £79 from Not on the High Street but they are available from various companies.
I drink tea but the bucketful so a mug with my child's drawing on would be a great gift, this one is £24 from a seller on Not On The High Street.
As i've mentioned before, i love a good bath. Lush have quite a few new bath products in for Mothers Day and Easter and these make ideal gifts. You could easily buy a bath bomb and add a few extras like a mini bottle of wine, hot chocolate or some scented candles and make a little pamper evening kit.
Chocolates and flowers may be a cliche but they are a still a winner with me. A bunch of daffodils only costs £1 and will brighten up any room.
If you want to make a gesture rather then buy a gift then a nice breakfast is a great idea.
Asda are currently stocking heart shaped waffles and crumpets for £1 which are very cute and would be ideal to serve up either in bed or at the table on a pretty plate and perhaps some flowers or the Sunday papers.
Another idea would be to bake a cake or some biscuits for your mum, if you're not a great baker then use a mix! Betty Crocker mixes taste great and are easily available.
I hope i have given you some useful ideas for things to do or buy for your mum this year. Make sure she knows how special she is!
