I never know what to get my Mum for Mother's Day; I think at 33 years of age, I've nearly exhausted all options, I've even repeated them a couple of times. As well as that, my Mum gives out if I get her something expensive, but she deserves it.
This year, however, I got a stern warning advance of next Sunday that I was not to spend a lot of money. Just come and visit. But I won't turn up empty handed, so I've picked out a few fashion-y ideas for your Mummy that won't cost a fortune but she'll like them all the same.
If your mamma likes accessories then get her a bag in a style or colour she wouldn't get herself. Spring is all about pastels and there are some chic looking totes, clutches and purses that embrace the trend for less.
Jewelry is always a nice gift to receive and as my mummy happens to be a magpie I know any kind of sparkle will delight her. Accessorize make a range of jewelry with semi-precious stones to give a luxury look to pieces that are under €40, like these blue earrings.
There are also some fabulously dainty bracelets and necklaces that you can style up in a nice gift box.
Your mum might always add pyjamas to your Santa sack and you can return the favour for Mother's Day. Debenhams have a huge range of nightwear and loungewear from Ted Baker that is incredibly pretty; from nightdresses to PJs to matching robes so you can co-ordinate the pieces. I love this floral robe that will make your mum feel glam at bedtime.
And you know, you can add little accents to the gifts too, like some faux flowers to accompany your visit home to the Mammy. Heatons have a huge selection of cute potted flowers and bouquets for under €10.
So what do you think you'll get your Mum for Mother's Day? Any ideas you want to share?
