March 30 is Mother’s Day, a day to say ‘thanks mum’ to the wonderful women who raised us – or get some pampering ourselves. If you’re stuck for ideas, here are five fail safe options for mums, whatever their stage of motherhood.
The lovely new pyjamas
Nightwear always makes a great gift as it’s often a area of our wardrobe we ladies can neglect, yet at the same time we get a lot of pleasure slipping into a lovely crisp new pair of pjs. These black floral pyjamas from The Fine Cotton Company are fab with their vintage print and beautiful detailing. They also come in pink or blue woven stripe if you’re after something a little more subtle.
Buy: £130, S/M-M/L. notonthehighstreet.com.
Treat those hard-working feet
Something as simple as a truly luxurious pair of slippers can make a fabulous gift for any woman. These soft and cosy sheepskin scuffs from Hush will pamper mum’s feet every morning – she won’t want to take them off!
Buy: £50, sizes 3-8. Hush.
Make a new mum feel great
For new mums or mums-to-be, how about some gorgeous maternity lingerie that will make her feel special? This pretty cotton-lined ice blue satin Alexa bra and brief from Lorna Drew is owned by Kate Middleton and would make the perfect gift. The nursing bra, which adjusts by up to three cup sizes to accommodate changing breast size during breastfeeding, can be worn from four months pregnant and comes with matching briefs, which sit comfortably under your bump and cleverly mould to your shape by over two dress sizes.
Buy: Bra, £39, 30-38 B-J. Briefs, £19, 8-18. Lorna Drew.
Say it with chocolates
What woman doesn’t like chocolate? Hotel Chocolat’s Mother’s Day gift sets come in all shapes and sizes to suit your budget, and because we’re the chocoholics we are, we think this super sized heart filled with 36 delicious chocolately treats is just the ticket. See the discount codes section at the end of this feature to get a special 10% off your order.
Buy: £39. Hotel Chocolat.
A posh cup of tea
Make a day of it by splashing out on afternoon tea with mum at a fancy hotel or department store. If you’re in London, how about Harrods? That way you can combine tea and cakes with a spot of shopping.
