Sketchers Women’s Go Walk 2 Flash Trainers
These are the ideal gift for the mother-on-the-go. Whether she’s into getting active or just has to busy body everywhere, these trainers are so comfortable. My mother has a pair for taking the dogs out as well as for walking around Disney parks and they really are worth every penny.
Ted Baker A5 Notebook
Mothers are often very much organised, so help her keep it up with this gorgeous Ted Baker notebook with a gorgeous floral-inspired Chelsea Border print. Who says being practical can’t be pretty?

Woodwick Sunset Bonfire Trilogy Candle
We discovered Woodwick candles over Christmas when we received one for a gift and oh my word, they are amazing. They are pretty strong in scent, which is always amazing, but also make a crackling noise when burning so it sounds like you’re by a fire. Lighting this to relax is such a treat, especially when you’re reading.
Available from Amazon for £19.00

Make mum’s “me time” a luxurious one with this gorgeous Cath Kidston bath set. These five bath-time treats are enriched with antioxidant matcha tea extract. Enjoy an array of scents including Apple Blossom & Elderflower, Mandarin Blossom and White Clover & Matcha Tea. The set contains two body washes, two lotions and a body souffle.

Burgon & Ball Rosa Gardening Gloves
If your mother has a green thumb, then these are a useful and thoughtful gift. I think these gardening gloves are so pretty and great for those who like to get down and dirty with plants and vegetables.

Therapy Animal Embossed Robe
I think every mother has a dressing gown. Maybe now is the perfect time to treat her to a new one like this snuggly one, perfect for cold mornings or lazing around after a bubble bath. It’s made from such a soft and cosy material that she may think twice about whether she wants to get dressed for the day ahead.
