It’s that time of year again! Mother’s Day, the day where you need to choose the right present that says ‘thanks for being the best mum’. While we’re all a bit too old to get away with a handmade gift and card, it’s still important to show that some thought has gone into your gift. Like me, you’ve probably sent flowers for years in a row because with a few clicks online they’re sent. Job done. How about stepping things up this year and choosing a fragrance she’ll love? Everyone loves a new scent and that’s what makes perfume such a successful Mother’s Day gift. It also means she’ll think about you each time she puts it on. We know it’s hard to choose a perfume at random, so we checked out a fragrance shop and compiled a list of perfumes we love and that we’re sure your mum will adore too.
