It’s easy to get lost in the heart-shaped ‘Mum’ lockets, standard boxes of chocolates and last-minute (therefore the same as always but ridiculously expensive) flowers come Mother’s Day (which is Sunday 26 March this year, FYI).

But we’ll see you right with our edit of floral-inspired gifts, stunning jewellery and, of course, a bunch of beautiful booze.

Scroll through our gallery below for 37 presents perfect for your mum, your mum friends, yourself...
