My approach to Mother's Day is the same as Valentine's Day: sure it's commercialised, but I like any opportunity to celebrate loved ones - especially my mama - so whether it's sending a homemade card, her favourite flowers or a present, taking her for afternoon tea or booking an experience together, parents deserved to be spoilt!  I have fond memories as a kid scribbling felt tips in cards, picking flowers from the garden, saving my pocket money to buy something tiny, painting wooden spoons and making my mum breakfast in bed, and the tradition of little treats continues... Mother's Day comes early this year on Sunday 6 March - if you haven't decided what to do for it yet, here are ten classic gift ideas for women of all ages.
