MOTHER'S DAY 2017 GIFT GUIDE

My mum is the most special lady (other than Elsie) in my life. I like nothing better than to spoil my mum every Mother's Day. I'm sure the majority of you will feel the same about your own mum. I know some people don't have a mum for a number of different reasons, so if you are one of these people, then you are in my thoughts this Mother's Day.

Here's a little gift guide if you're stuck on ideas for what to treat your mum to. After all, she did carry you for 9 months, so it's important to make sure the gift is special and something your mum will love. 

Argos have an exclusive perfect gift for a mum who likes to look good and keep active and fit. Whether she likes long walks with the dog or enjoys an evening run to clear her mind; she will love this kit from Terraillon. It includes an Activit Band, so she can easily keep track of things like steps, distance and calories burned. It also monitors your sleep, has a handy clock and a vibrating alarm. Included in the set are the Terraillon Weight Scales, so Mum can monitor her body if she's trying to lose or put on weight.


Walker's Shortbread Biscuits - £5.00
Satisfy your mum's sweet tooth with this delightful tin of mini shortbread biscuits. If she's a tea dunker, biscuits are the best gift idea for Mum this year. Walker's shortbread melts in the mouth and are rather more-ish!
