Ideal Home loves – our pick of the best Mother's Day gifts

Our weekly round-up of best buys is simply the things we love. This week we're loving treats to celebrate mums

Mum’s the word right now as we prepare to mark Mother’s Day. Next Sunday 1th March gives us a chance to thoroughly spoil mums. We've put together an edit of thoughtful gifts to help inspire you.

For a personal touch choose a beautiful Emma Bridgewater cup decorated with 'Mum', which will make her feel special every time tea is served. Indulge her senses with a luxury Neom beauty set, sure to leave mum feeling zen. Saying it with flowers may be slightly cliché, but you really can’t beat a fragrant bouquet of fresh blooms to raise a smile - especially the beautifully scented lavender bouquet we've chosen.
