Mother's Day gift ideas

Not interested in boxes of chocolates or scented candles? I'm a mother and I never feel drawn to those Mother's Day ranges displayed in the run up to the Sunday itself (a week today in the UK). Instead, I think it's worth thinking laterally, coming up with a few things I'd really love - beautiful, well-designed bits and bobs that will bring a smile every time they're used.

1. A new basket for my knitting paraphernalia - this one is made from recycled paper and woven palm. From £12, RE

2. Flowers are never a bad idea. These Mothers Day Flowers are from Debenhams - delivered, they cost £44.99.

3. Personalised gifts are lovely, and these double sided hanging picture frames from Decorator's Notebook make it easy to sandwich souvenirs and memories between glass. From £12.95.

4. No thanks to synthetic soaps. Try a traditional Provencal soap from Labour & Wait in lavender, verbena or sandalwood. £3.50.

5. I LOVE incense. Making my home smell delightful is one of life's simple pleasures. Head over to The Future Kept to read the description of this Ume Mogao incense. I can't imagine how glorious it smells! £11.00.

6. A thing of beauty is a joy forever, as a great philosopher (Mary Poppins) once said. Tactile kitchenware objects are a minor obsession of mine. This shallow dish is made from oak. £22.00 from John Lewis.

7. Finally, a pair of cashmere bedsocks are bound to please even the fussiest of mothers. £35.00 from The White Company.

I hope my mum isn't reading this... What are you planning to get for yours? And what would you like, mums?
