Verdict

For sheer novelty factor, we love the Airkix indoor skydiving idea, and even more for the fact that the whole family can join in. The Fudgey Friday’s Membership Club is also a winner, as it’s not just a one-off gift but something that Mum can enjoy every month.

And the UNICEF Mother’s Day Basket shouldn’t be overlooked – at just £22, it’s an affordable option that helps out those in difficult circumstances.
