I'm a Mum—Here's What I Actually Want for Mother's Day

I used to find shopping for a Mother's Day present for my mum genuinely difficult. Shouldn't I get her something that represents how much I appreciate her and not just another bottle of perfume? Well, since becoming a mum myself, I've realised something: Mums don't want anything that isn't useful.

For me, that means my list of possible gifts would include my favourite face cream, current favourite perfume and a pair of gold earrings that I'll wear forever. This year, I'm also after fitness tracker, as I love to run (it also means that I can smugly track my steps when dashing around after my toddler).

But I am but one mum, so I spoke to a few other women who are both mums and have great taste. From Alex Steadman of The Frugality to Emma Thatcher as well as Gemma Breger and Samantha Silver of This Is Mothership, there are plenty of ideas for Mother's Day presents below.
