Looking for a Mother’s Day Gift to make her feel treasured? We’re here to help, with tips for everything from scents to flower bouquets…

The past 12 months has been difficult for mums everywhere. It’s been a time of extremes, with some mums surrounded by their kids at all times without a moment to themselves, while many with older children have been separated and unable to meet up at all. More than ever, mums deserve a treat.

While a thoughtful card or her favourite perfume always please, there are a few other things that might also go down well in a year when the home has become central – an indulgent bath oil, a mood lifting scented candle or a pair of cosy cashmere socks, for example. And remember: good gifting isn't about how much you spent but about how much thought you put into the gift. Here’s to mum!
