Mother’s Day: Thoughtful gift ideas for your amazing mum

Mother’s Day is just around the corner.

As non-essentials shops will remain closed, most people will be buying their gifts online or at the supermarket.

A string of retailers are gearing up for the big day, with thousands of items on offer for shoppers.

You can choose from traditional options such as flowers, mugs and chocolates, as well as gift sets and personalised items.

This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, March 14.

The event always takes place on the fourth Sunday of Lent, meaning the date changes each year.

It typically falls on the third or fourth weekend in March but because Easter is early this year (April 4), the date for Mothering Sunday also moves forward.

Here is a selection of gift ideas you can treat your mum to.

Aldi candle and diffuser collection, from £3.99
