    Possibly the most important celebratory day in any mamma’s calendar, Mother’s day is definitely NOT a day to be missed. While they spend the entirety of our lives cooking, cleaning and caring for us (and let’s not forget worrying about us!), on top of holding down full time jobs and (much deserved) rich and rewarding social lives  - in return they get back, let’s face it, far less than they deserve. Well this Mother’s day that’s all going to change, thanks to Poundstretcher's ultimate guide to Mother’s day!

    We’ve collated all the best and most beautiful products from the Poundstretcher range, that are sure to knock your mamma’s socks off! No matter if your mum’s a green-fingered gardener or more of a pampered princess, we’re sure to have everything you need to make her day that extra bit special!

    So if you’re struggling to find the perfect gift this year and want to shower your mum with love, then have a gander at our handy guide to Mother’s day to give yourself some much needed inspiration!

    Why not start the day off by preparing her breakfast in bed! Whether she’s more muesli and yogurt or a full English fan, she deserves to be spoiled on her special day! But no matter what her breakfast preferences are, we’re sure she’d appreciate a nice steaming mug of Kenco Millicano or Carte Noire coffee to go with it!

    Once breakfast is over (and you’ve washed up), continue spoiling your mamma with an unexpected box of yummy chocolates!  Indulge her with a lovingly chosen box of delicious black magic chocolates, or some mouth-watering De-lux chocolate truffles! But if she’s got more of a soft spot for a good old family favourite, then you can always grab one of our huge 600g tubs of Quality Street chocolates – let’s just hope she shares!

    If your mum’s a fan of plating and growing, then why not have a nosy at our great selection of planters and baskets! Spoil your mum with one of our adorable square planting sets that’re available in Allium, Anemone, Crocosmia or Oxalis - or get one of each if she just can’t choose a favourite!
