My MIL has already asked for a plant for the garden. I don't have any really original ideas, in the past have done smellies, perfume, bulbs/pansies in a pot, orchid in a pot, a nice top, silver jewellry (eg necklace and earrings from Next).

Another idea might be a voucher for a manicure/facial/massage.

We're having lunch out (booked ages ago so we could get in) and hyacinths. I just love the smell.

BL - is it the 6th?

I was going to send flowers to both mums (I know boring, but we live the other end of the country!)

biglips Thu 17-Feb-05 12:14:31

munn - yes it is the 6th and flowers are nice and at least you've thought of them on mothers day and it be my first mothers day

Bozza Thu 17-Feb-05 12:30:47

I never get pampered. The day consists of trailing about to my mums and MILs.

A tile with child's hand or foot print or artwork on it from one of those do-your-own ceramic places.
