Mothers Day

Chances are, this soon after Christmas mummy is still desperate to shed the Christmas pounds and flowers last a week tops. So lets be a little bit original this year!

Photo moments

For the sentimental – something she can keep and look at everyday.

DiaryBasic - Photo frame - with a lovely picture of memories involving your self and your mother.

If you wants to up the ante try a digital photoframe and add a selection of great pictures from family occasions and holidays.

Intermediate – Photo album – buy a gorgeous photo album and fill it with all your favourite pictures. Or just buy the album, a prit stick and let her do it herself.

Difficult – Photo montage – Most developing shops now do all sorts of cute accessories that you can combine pictures with but my favourite by far is PhotoBox. Here you can create anything! From the simplest cute mug to photobooks, personalised calendars and huge photo montage wall hangings. I think the diaries are the CUTEST!

Days Out

Basic – A day shopping in London with lunch or tea in one of the fabulous department stores.

Stop of for lunch or tea in the kitsch Liberty's cafe or something a bit more exciting go to Selfridges and see which of their many bars, cafes and restaurants takes your fancy! To check out your options go to :

OrbingIntermediate - Spa Day – the Sanctuary in London offer a range of open datevouchers for spa days. Just book your day and take your mother for a relaxing massage or facial!

Difficult – All over the web there are great ways to make a day a little bit different. Is your mum a chocolate lover? Take her to a chocolate making workshop or an exciting fun filled activity day. do an amazing range including orbing, rolling down the Sussex hills in a huge inflatable ball at speeds up to 30mph!



Accessorize won the Cosmo Fashion Award for accessories this year and have a great range of gorgeous bit and bobs to give to your mother, and if you cant be there in person a gift in the post is just as nice!

paperchaseFor your busy working mother go to Paperchase. A tried and tested stationer with gorgeous products to spice up any office! Diaries, pens, notebooks and all sorts!

I can't give you any advice on clothes... your mothers taste is probably nothing like my pink, sparkle obsessed mother's, but if you want to get your Fashion Friendly mother something designer and gorgeous take a trip to the Bicester Village. There's huge discounts on brands such as Hobbs, Jaeger and Hugo Boss.

Food lovers will love a Harrods hamper! Honestly... you can never go wrong with a trip to Harrods!

If this is all a little bit too much then go to Marks and Spencer. The have a fabulous range of make up as well as flowers, hampers, gifts and cards.

Spring will be here (eventually) so why not put a selection of seeds and cute gardening tools, like these from Liberty, in a basket with a card if your Mother is the green fingered type!


Traditional flowers will do the trick as long as they are beautiful! do a huge range of flowers for delivery.

What ever you do this Mothers Day, traditional or not, remember to tell your Mum you love her!
