We all know the story. It is days before Mother's Day and you are still racking your brain for what to buy that lovely lady you call "Mum". Don't worry, help is at hand; here are five gift ideas that will guarantee you are in her good books right up to Christmas.
Chelsea Day Spa
Live the Made In Chelsea lifestyle for the day, with a spa treatment at the Chelsea Day Spa located in the heart of Chelsea, on King's Road. Here you can indulge in anything from their signature facial, a full body treatment or a quick mani and pedi before heading to the Bluebird for a Chelsea fizz afternoon tea. Remember: champagne is always the answer, it doesn't matter what the question is.
Lotions and potions
A classic perfume can be an extra special gift and fragrances from Chanel always go down well – just choose your Chanel with your mother's personality in mind. Is she a Coco Mademoiselle, young at heart suiting a light fragrance with notes of Jasmine-rose?
Maybe she is more of a Chanel Chance, a warmer scent with notes of iris, Jasmine and white musk – or a classic No.5 woman.
If you're are looking for something even more indulgent why not treat your mum to a customised fragrance at Floris, a truly unique experience and a perfume to match.
A Michelin star lunch gift voucher is a winning present. You can treat your mum to a beautiful lunch at a top restaurant. My favourites are Fera at Claridge's, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and The Hand and Flowers in Marlow. Lunches start at £35 per head for three courses.
Beauty and cosmetics
A lot of the major beauty brands bring out their new collection in spring, so why not pick up a piece from your mother's favourite brand?
My top picks are the new Lancome My French Palette that contains a mix of matte and iridescent shadows of soft romantic tonal pinks and three shades of spring green for a sophisticated smokey eye look, all packaged in a fun elegant case.
The Bobbi Brown Cheek Palette is one of the prettiest I have seen this season. This three in one palette warms, highlights and blushes the cheeks, is highly pigmented and available in three shades. Guaranteed to satisfy any beauty junkie's cravings.
Silky smooth skin
Lush brings out fantastic collections for every occasion and its Mother's Day collections don't disappoint. The Yummy Mummy range of shower gels and body conditioner smells divine and will leave your mum's skin feeling beautifully soft. If baths are more her thing you can also treat her to the Forget Her Not gift set which contains a selection of bath bombs and bubble bars so she can relax and soak her worries away.
Whatever you choose, make your mother feel like a million dollars and most importantly don't forget to say thank you for being a wonderful mum.
