The Mother's Day gifts mums really want
Little tokens of thoughtfulness
“I am a step-mum and my step-sons have designated the Sunday after Mother’s Day as Stepmother's Day, so their mum has the actual day for herself, and I have one for me. How cute and thoughtful 🥰. That's all I really want from them, is a little acknowledgement and maybe something thoughtful in the post or a delivery. Doesn't matter what it is really.”
–– Bron, Marketing
“Little tokens of thoughtfulness are the way to my heart. Last year my three year old made me a breakfast in bed menu (with a little help from her daddy) and presented my choices with a homemade card and flowers. It was perfect. I'm not sure how they'll top that this year, although as a mum of two small children, I'd settle for being able to use the bathroom without an audience 😆”
–– Beth, Brand Development
“Zero bickering, for just one day PLEASE! And peace and quiet to read my book, with a continual supply of tea & biscuits, or prosecco & peanuts, depending on what time of day we're at 😊"
–– Zara, Product & Supply
“Whenever my kids ask me what I'd like for birthday, Christmas, Mother's Day etc. my usual answer is a hug or for them to get on just for a day (I know, I can dream on that one!)”
–– Erica, Brand Development
Sunday roast = a winner
“A home cooked Sunday roast (that I don't have to cook or clean up afterwards) That would be my dream Mother's Day. And maybe someone else doing the ironing for a change.”
–– Sandra, Marketing
“What I'd REALLY like.... waking up naturally, no alarm and no Xbox chatter in the background, to a lovely cuppa brewed lovingly by my kids. Followed by the kids suggesting we go on a lovely long walk, preferably up a big hill, and then find a pub with a fire and have a delicious Sunday dinner. BUT I'll settle for a few extra hugs, less grunts and a game of pool with a glass of wine!”
–– Caroline, Marketing
“I'm a mum, step-mum and step- grandparent, I would love to be spoilt and taken out for a nice Sunday dinner, and not lift a finger all day!"
–– Julie, Product & Supply
A nice card or message is just right
“A handmade card and present always wins my heart! I also love seeing my daughter with my mummy (her Mamar) sitting knitting together (Mamar is 92) - those are the special moments”
–– Sian, HR
“As a family we never celebrate Mother's Day, but my daughter always remembers to send me a message as she lives in another part of the country, even if it is just to take the mickey as I work Mother’s Day!”
–– Valerie, Customer Care
“Having worked away over Mother's Day waking up in my own bed and being brought a nice cup of tea is a treat. As both my daughters have now left home this year I am hoping hubby steps up! A visit from them both would be lovely but one works weekends and the other lives 200 miles away! Other than that a nice card through the post with something kind written inside will do me!
–– Clare, Product & Supply
