From the grazed knees and night-time monsters of childhood, to the challenges of first-time motherhood or other momentous life achievements, mums are always there to love, guide, support and encourage. And for those of us fortunate enough to navigate life with our mum by our side, Mother’s Day is an opportunity to show just how much we appreciate their everyday contributions, large and small.
Knowing how difficult it can be to find a gift that encapsulates such special love and gratitude, the Mia Fratino team has rounded up some of our favourite gift ideas, for every mum: from glamorous fashionistas and musical mamas, to indulgent individuals and avid readers. Because every mum is entitled to their idea of luxury.
