No gifts for me – but here’s why I want to give my mum something special

Mother’s Day is on 14 March. I’m really not bothered about gifts for myself – just a card (ideally homemade) from my precious offspring is enough for me. But I do want to show my own mum some extra special appreciation this year.  She’s been through quite a lot recently, including a major operation and the loss of her favourite Uncle, so I think she deserves a special treat.

Here’s my shortlist:

Scented Mother’s Day basket from Interflora (£29.99). I just adore the colours of this arrangement and the pretty basket gives it added impact.

Pure DKNY (from £31.50), from Superdrug, Boots, John Lewis. My mum LOVES getting new perfume (who doesn’t), and this vanilla, lotus flower, Bulgarian rose, jasmine, freesia and orchid scented ethically sourced fragrance is simply delicious.

A box of Chococo chocolates. OMG. These chocolates are SO good. Handmade from the finest Venezuelan carenero superior bean chocolate and fresh Dorset cream and filled with the most delectable flavours (£19, available from buyagift).

Glee, the soundtrack (£8.97, from Woolworths). My mum has been a fan of Glee ever since I showed her the All the Single Ladies routine, so I know she’ll love this.
Hmmm. Might have to get her a few things, actually.

    I haven’t a clue! She’s coming here for Easter so I might take her for lunch somewhere. She lives in Manchester (200 miles away) and whenever I ask her what she wants she always says either, "don’t buy me anything, keep your money for yourself" which is really annoying and not very helpful, or "oooh, a CD" she’s got millions. So these days I tend to just give her a voucher or take her for a meal. And let’s face it, the meal means I get the pressie too!! I don’t expect anything from Amy but she’s good at making homemade cards. But a box of chocs would be nice I suppose! CJ xx

    Just like you, I don’t expect anything for Mother’s Day, mainly due to being on my own and the girls not being old enough to go buy me something without me. As for my mum, well, I got a bargin box of choc’s from Thornton’s last week – which I can’t share with her as have given up choc for Lent! Other than that I don’t really know. She will probably be seeing my Grandma who is still not home after badly breaking her arm at New Year. My mum like me, appreciates the company and the fact me and my girls are just round the corner and I know I don’t HAVE to get her anything, but it’s always nice to!!!

    I’m really looking forward to Mother’s Day this year as my two little ones have become quite creative recently. I might get a home made Ben 10 robot (i know, lucky me), a lopsided cake (always the tastiest) or even a paint-splodged card. Any of these fab pressies would be welcome too though, along with breakfast in bed.
