Remembering Mother's day is now a serious business. Gone are the days when  a bunch of slightly wilted carnations from  your local garage as a last minute's after thought on the way down the A3 to your mother's very slightly over cooked beef lunch will do.

The internet now offers a myriad of options, from specialist chocolates to suit the most exotic of tastes through to the possibility of the "ultimate wing walking experience" for your loved one ( with the video of mother screaming as an optional extra).

Well - there are options  somewhere in between the ubiquitous chocolate box  and the near death experience that  we hope that we can offer darling mama. Simple, English candles, a pair of cashmere/cotton socks (because spring may have popped its head out but winter ain't over yet me thinks, a throw for her bed or a scarf for a brisk spring morning.

We believe that Mother's day should be something to celebrate  - a mother should be formally acknowledged at least once a year - so why not bring something special, forget the wing walking and then do the washing up to really make her afternoon!
