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.
