It’s time to celebrate the important women in your life

In case you missed the fanfare Mother’s Day is fast-approaching – it’s on Sunday, March 26th if you were wondering – and while there are no hard and fast rules about what you should get the woman in your life, you’ve still got to give it a go.

Whether it’s your mum, grandma, step-mother or mother-in-law, it’s time to celebrate all the women you know and love but forget a last-minute dash for flowers; this year, buy her something she really wants.

Shopping for a stylish mum? Luckily there are plenty of options that make it easy to spoil her.

For magpie maven’s you can never go wrong with a piece of jewellery but avoid the costume variety. Instead, opt for something simple, elegant yet seriously voguish like this pair of labradorite earrings from Chan Luu

A trusty handbag is also a very handy gift, particularly when you get to borrow it – so invest in a timeless piece. We like this compact cross-body from Whistles; it’s perfect for carrying daily essentials and guarantees to make an impact in the style stakes.

Alternatively, opt for something that will bring a touch of luxury to her down-time with a indulgent pair of pyjamas or a cosy pair of slippers to help her relax after a long day. 

Likewise, spoiling her with a bath time treat will also to do the trick and Lush have an amazing range of limited edition products on offer. Our favourite is the Happy Mother’s Day gift set which comes with 13 items including everything from bath bombs and bubble bars to lip scrubs and soaps. 

If she’s a real beauty buff, richly scented candles or an exquisite fragrance offer the perfect alternative to a fresh spring bouquet; plus they have the added bonue of lasting a lot longer.

For those who prefer lighter whiffs Mon Guerlain offers a fresh, oriental fragrance while Jo Malone’s Dark Amber & Ginger Lily Cologne will satisfy those with a penchant for sensual, woody scents.
