Is yours a Yummy Mummy? Or aspiring to be? The school gates are teeming with trendy mothers sporting Selfish Mother sweaters and emblazoned t-shirts. Choose your favourite slogan from Mother, Maman, Sista or Winging It. All profits go to Women for Women International, a charity that helps to rebuild the live of women in war-torn countries. Treat your mum, and help others too.

Is your mum young at heart? Trust stylish Hannah Foster from GiftPop to keep her in check with neon Pom Pom scarves, star sarongs and Millie Pink hair bands. GiftPop’s new Philbert keyboard covers or classic totes will make her the envy of her peers. Everything is affordable, cheery and individual. As seen in Tatler.
NOT ON THE HIGH STREET
Never one to let gift hunters down, Not on the High Street has an extensive mother’s day gift list. Opt for the goddess mother, the mother maker, mummy & me, token gifts or personalised gifts. Or does your mother just need Gin? They’ve even got a gift list for Gin lovers. We spotted G&T lip balm.
Choosing online flowers used to be quite the challenge; order badly and your recipient gets a dismal bunch and – worse than that - you never know. No need to fret if you order via Bloomon an Amsterdam-based online company that cuts out the middlemen and focuses on flower subscriptions. You can please your mum and spend less. Win win. See our roundup of best sites for ordering flowers
I JUST LOVE IT
Make a cuppa, sit soft and get ready to lose yourself in the I Just Love It site that offers out of the ordinary personalised and unusual gifts. Browse by occasion, recipient and interest to get gift inspiration. Top marks to their personalised Haynes manuals and Mother Hen mug.
Is it her very first Mother’s Day? Odds are she won’t be forgetting this one so don’t let her down. Babyblooms is for people who want to send their love to new parents with gifts for babies and mothers. Look to the ‘Just found out’ page and the ‘Just because presents’ for ideas to spoil the new mum in your life.
Is your mother run ragged, and in need of downtime? Perhaps time for a spa day or break, and a little pamper. Discover treatwell, the largest hair and beauty booking website in Europe that helps you find your favourite salons and recommended venues. Type in your postcode, the kind of treatment you want and treatwell will locate a spa to suit you, or your mum, or both, what the heck.
Why send flowers when you can send biscuits? Hmmm, one to debate, perhaps. A colourful box of Biscuiteers – luxury biscuits, chocolates or cakes - is especially popular when little mites are at home. The hand-iced biscuits are more an edible work of art than just something to nibble on. Hark back to days of baking with mum and licking out the bowl.
