BEAUTY: STAR TREATS FOR SPECIAL MUMS; Gorgeous beauty products to make even the pickiest mother feel like a pampered princess - because every day should be Mother's Day...
All things bright and beautiful, all palettes big and small. From shimmer bricks to bronzing sticks, this mum wants them all...
ZPM Barbarella Pencil Slim Make-up Bag, pounds 10.50
Fabulously kitsch, and your mum is certainly old enough to remember the original 1968 film (though don't remind her of that).
Bobbi Brown Nude On Nude Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow Palette, pounds 36
Nothing terrifyingly trendy, just five fab suit-everyone shades. We can't think of another palette that will end up as evenly worn down as this.
Guerlain Divinora Art Of Lines Set, pounds 38
Think This Morning make-over meets Watercolour Challenge. Your mum will have great fun mixing up liners and colours with this beautiful custom-blend kit.
THE TOILETRIES QUEEN
Heaven for this mum is a candlelit tub with bubbles up to her neck, and delicious spa-style body treats to slather on afterwards.
Scottish Fine Soaps The Tub Bath Bubbles, pounds 6
The bottle looks like something you'd find in a cool boutique hotel, it smells fantastic and the bubbles are to die for.
L'Occitane Spicy Orange Candle, pounds 15, and terracotta dish, pounds 6.50
No, it's not a dig at her cellulite, just a wonderfully zingy candle that will turn her bathroom into a Mediterranean paradise.
SpaceNK Ultimate Experience in Enrapture, pounds 38
A gorgeous sampler selection of SpaceNK's best bath and body treats, all infused with their signature tuberose and orange blossom scent.
THE SCENT ADDICT
Her handbag's a mass of perfume testing strips, so get her nostrils quivering with these new scents.
Cliff Richard Dream Maker, pounds 24.50
Oh come on, you know your mum loves this (very confirmed) bachelor boy. And (whisper it quietly) the scent's not actually that bad...
DKNY Be Delicious Eau de Parfum Spray, pounds 35
Remind her you're the apple of her eye with this crisp, green little number which certainly won't be ignored or turn brown and mouldy on her dressing table.
Clean Provence, pounds 55
If she's after something her friends definitely won't have, try the newie from cult brand Clean, whose fans include Cameron Diaz and Sarah Jessica Parker. Think freshly laundered linen and just-lathered soap (it won't remind her of wash day, honest).
Who needs one cream when 10 will do? This mum collects sample pots of all the latest potions, and is always on the look-out for a miracle wrinkle buster.
No7 Uplifting Day Cream, pounds 15.75
This cream looks set to be a modern classic for skin-savvy ladies on a budget, thanks to its immediate tightening and brightening effect.
Origins Night-A-Mins, pounds 25
This favourite is back with a new extra-concentrated formula to repair damage in double time and plump up the skin. It's even got a relaxing scent to help your mum drift off for her full eight hours of beauty sleep.
Dr Sebagh For Your Eyes Only, pounds 62
He's the hottest skin doc in town with clients like Elle Macpherson. Your mum will love this dual action eye bag deflater and circle buster, great for disguising late nights.
