Put simply, mums are the best. Not only have they provided, cared for you and loved you your whole life (even when you didn’t deserve it), as you get older you also start to realise that they truly are your best friend.
“From day one, our mothers are connected to us in a way like no other,” says Lysn psychologist Nancy Sokarno. “Our ultimate confidante, a listening ear, someone who will always have your best interest at heart because it’s also in her interest.”
And although we should be showing our mums how much we love and appreciate them more than just once a year, Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show her just how grateful you really are.
Here, we’ve rounded up some ideas that’ll send you right to the top of her favourites list. Simply add to cart and don’t forget to write out a card, will ya.
