Ask your mother/aunt/wife/sister/friend what she’d like for Mother’s Day and you’re more than likely to hear some version of “love and affection.” Sweet? Yes. True? Um. As much as we all swear otherwise (and this is not to speak ill of love and affection!), there’s usually something out there that would make the mothers of the world very happy. For that reason alone—and because we also really love the mothers in our lives—this isn’t the day for flying blind.
Because hugs, calls, and flowers are great for Mother’s Day, but when you’re really trying to score favourite-child points, you need to be prepared with gifts that will make her day unforgettable. We have presents for mothers that are unique and special, just like her – to spoil the deserving women you know (including yourself). Read more, ‘Gift Giving Tips from the Experts.’
Every mother is different, so we’ve strategically set out to find gift ideas that will tickle everyone’s fancy – even those who say they don’t need a thing.
From the hostess with the mostess to the mum who’s always up-to-the-minute, we’ve got all the bases covered. Oh and, a few quick ideas on how to throw a fun brunch at home to show and tell them how much they really mean to us – because it’s that time when we need to up the ante!

Mother’s Day is the best time to round up your family for a festive group brunch.
Not that we need an excuse to eat delicious food with your favourite people, but there’s just something about the day that makes us extra excited to celebrate. And even if you’re someone who dreads hosting – Mother’s Day is an easy time to pull it off, with a relaxed brunch or lunch that’ll keep you and your guests happy and full.
We started with the sweet stuff to get you in the mood, with lots of good looking patisserie (preferably bought), scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, mortadella, crusty bread, and fluffy waffles – the list goes on. No Mother’s Day is complete without a big fresh pear tart or cheesecake, and it’s never too early to start snacking….Served with good champagne or prosecco – your mother deserves it.
You can even serve a simple morning or after tea with things like spiced apple cakes and French pear tarts. Then add things like fruit tartlets, slices of cakes, seasonal berries and fruits, plus pretty dishes of good chocolates. Display it on pretty platters, and lay it out down the middle of your table for your mum and family to serve themselves. The idea is to get everyone together.
