7. Hot and Cold Drink Flask
We could all do with drinking more water so help her stay hydrated with this super light stainless steel drink flask by award-winning British Interior Designer, Matthew Williamson. It's a pretty but practical gift and it comes with a 5-year guarantee. It's also suitable for hot drinks as well as cold - bonus! Thermos sent me one of these to try and it's now my go-to for keeping my coffee warm on the school run or reminding me to stay hydrated at my desk.
8. Yankee Candle Mother's Day Gift Set
The best Mother's Day gift for a mum who loves a smelly candle, this bumper gift set includes two medium jar candles (Fluffy Towels and Cherry Blossom) and six small votive candles (Soft Blanket, Art in the Park, A Calm and Quiet Place, Cucumber Mint Cooler, Red Raspberry, and Seaside Woods) so it's good value for money too. If she loves nothing better than lighting a candle and settling in for a relaxing night at home, she's sure to love this thoughtful gift.
9. Cashmere Jumper
There’s a reason cashmere jumpers never go out of fashion. Versatile and warm, this one has a crew neck and is machine washable as an added bonus. It's a hit with John Lewis customers who have rated it almost 4 out of 5 stars. One happy owner wrote: 'Beautifully soft jumper that provides both comfort and style. The fit is perfect and the design allows for either a colourful scarf or a sleeveless white blouse. Thank you JL.'
