Mother's Day gift ideas to suit any budget
Leave our roundup of present ideas where the likely gift-buyer will 'stumble across' it - or use it as inspiration when choosing a gift for your own Ma this Mother's Day (Sunday 6 March)
Something really personal
|"I have a plain purple string bracelet from Merci Maman and I love it. It's still going strong after three years."
||"This magical website creates really beautiful books. It's really easy to use and you can add your own touches, such as a photo or dedication."|
Mumsnet exclusive: Free US/UK shipping and free giftwrap
A good book (plus time to curl up with it)
Traditional, but no less lovely for that
Fashionable AND practical
Gifts that last
|"I bought a package for my friend and she absolutely loved it; the packaging, the contents, everything! Such a great gift idea and it lasts so much longer than a bunch of flowers would."
||"A subscription to a magazine is a great idea - it's a gift that goes on and on."|

Less than £5 to spend? Budget favourites
And remember: some gifts cost nothing at all
- "This year it would be lovely if my husband takes the day off and we can just have a family day - oh, and a cup of tea in bed!"
- "So long as I get a kiss and a cuddle (and perhaps an hour alone to shower and paint my toenails etc, instead of trying to patrol the fights and act as a climbing frame
), I'm not bothered about getting 'stuff'."
- "I don't want presents - except for a bunch of daffodils picked from the garden; homemade cards from the kids; and coffee and toast in bed. Ahhhh!"
