WORSHIP THE FEMALE
Animal: Sara Pascoe

This is a multi-media treat for mums, but for you to enjoy, too. That’s because Sara Pascoe – one of the finest comedians of her, or indeed any, generation – is taking Animal on tour. Animal is Pascoe’s moving and critically acclaimed book about the female body, which we also recommend on audiobook (a fine actress, Pascoe performs the heck out of it).

NOURISH YOUR SOUL
Living Food Day with Daphne Lambert


Celebrate cultural biodiversity while discovering the art of traditional fermented foods. At the Living Food Day at Greencuisine Byre in Lewes, you’ll learn the benefits of lacto fermented vegetables. A delicious lunch is included as well as Daphne’s new book.
25 March, 10am-4pm, £95, Green Cuisine

YOUR MUM IS WELL FIT
Timex IQ + Move


You might have bought a fitness tracker for your mum before and seen the fear in her eyes upon opening it. And then it wasn’t long before you were returning it as you knew she’d never use it. Now Timex has the answer with a fitness tracker cannily disguised as a beautiful watch. Yes, it tracks steps, calories burned and monitors sleep. But it looks classy, too.

FOR ANYONE LOOKING FOR SOME GET UP AND GO
Ignite 2017


Not just for mums, Hay House’s Ignite 2017 is for anyone seeking inspiration or looking to turbocharge their life. Ignite – which takes place at Tuke Hall in Regent’s Park – is a full day of talks and seminars by the most exciting new voices in wellbeing. Topics include lucid dreaming, finding calm and becoming a successful entrepreneur.
18 March, 9am-5.30pm, Hay House

MOTHER OF A TREAT
Agua spa at The Sanderson


We all have that one woman in our life who helped us become who we are today – be it your mum, grandmother or other ‘mother figure’. Time to show your gratitude with a spa treatment. And, if you absolutely HAVE to join her, no one’s stopping you. Enjoy the chill-out zone and meditation beds afterwards.

A BELATED THANK YOU
Vacuum ring


When your mum was, or so it seemed, forever vacuuming throughout your childhood, she never thought she’d get the ultimate payback. Well, now you can say ‘thank you’ by presenting her with this stunning, smoky ‘vacuum’ ring on Mother’s Day. The placement of quartz crystals is said to help create a vacuum effect, hence the name. If dad suddenly develops a penchant for vacuuming, it means he wants one, too.
