6 fabulous Mother’s Day gifts to wow your mum

We asked 15 mothers what they want for Mother’s Day, and the result is aww-inducing — almost all of them wanted handmade or DIY gifts, proof that it’s really the thought that counts. But since not all of us are artistically-inclined, here are some other gift ideas that should please mummy dearest.

MEMORY BOOK MUM: DEAR MUM

For those who lack the time and talent to make mum a gift from scratch, this memory book is a sweet compromise. In it are pages which prompt you to fill in things like “Something that always reminds me of you…”, as well as stickers and photo pages to personalise a heart-warming gift for mum.

Homeware and kitchenware items may be the least-wanted gift on our list — guess mum needs a break from the kitchen! — but this gorgeous set of four dessert plates breaks the unglam kitchen gift stereotype. Almost too pretty to be used.
