I'll admit that previously I've been a little puritanical about the kind of Mother's Day gifts I'm open to receiving. "They must be practical!" I'd tell my husband, as if by the very fact that I've birthed a human, I no longer deserved "fun" or "silly" items that had no sensible purpose. In a turn that will surprise absolutely no one who has lived through the past year (so, quite literally, the whole world), I'm craving frivolousness.
I don't want useful placemats or serving bowls that are really a present for the whole family. I want seductive perfumes and bright lipsticks and oversize throws, which will inevitably be introduced to sticky yoghurt-covered hands. I've got my eye on a GHD hot brush tool that will help me achieve a K-Mids level blow-dry, even though I'm going nowhere. I also spied a set of six pink candles that are for no one else to look at other than me.
If you find yourself in the same position this year, then come take a look at all the below gifts I've spotted that are great for any kind of budget you're working with. The truth is, I am absolutely happy with a card, but after the past 12 months, if you want something a little more then feel free to copy and paste this link to your other half and drop big hints about what you'd like. Keep scrolling for the 32 presents I'd actually like this Mother's Day.
