Best gifts for Mum this Mother’s Day
It’s the time of year when we make an extra effort to show our mums how much they mean to us, so here are some gift ideas
Thank goodness chocolate is still a traditional and popular gift on Mother’s Day. Thorntons have some lovely selections just for mums, including I Love Mum truffles for just £2.99 and the new Mum’s Lovely Collection for £15, a beautifully designed box of 20 mouth-watering chocs in a variety of flavours. Yum!
Treat her to a relaxing spa break at Ragdale Hall where facilities include a candle pool, indoor and outdoor waterfall pool, volcanic salt bath, rose sauna, cave shower, colour flow cave and scented room. Book with Candis on our fabulous Candis Club break to Ragdale Hall and she’ll also get two nights’ accommodation, meals, a Clarins gift, two treatments and other exclusive extras.
Music to her ears
If your mum is a fan of the BBC hit series Call The Midwife, she’ll love the CD of songs and music featured in the series. The drama is set in the 1950s and the music reflect that era and includes songs by Doris Day, Perry Como and Petula Clark among many others plus incidental music from the series and the title theme. Priced at £9.99 from the BBC Shop and other music outlets.
This Cath Kidston Rose Manicure Gift Set is the perfect gift if your mum is a hand-pampering perfectionist. The set includes a full-size rose-scented hand cream, cuticle cream, hand soap and ditsy emery board. The rich floral scent marries soft natural rose with luxurious Italian orris, white amber and tonka beans. Priced at £13 from Roman At Home.
Gift this little patchwork elephant cut-out picture in a frame with a little note to say you’ll never forget all the lovely things your mum has done for you over the years. Other designs are available and prices start at £12.50 unframed. Buy from Bertie & Jack and Not On The High Street.
Bring on spring
With notes of magnolia, bluebell and lily on a base of white musk and sandalwood, the new Wild Meadow Flowers limited edition range from Heathcoat & Ivory includes a full sized set of exfoliating hand wash and soothing hand lotion for £12. Including clove and basil essential oils, shea butter and Vitamin E, they will help soften and protect skin – perfect!
