Mothers Day Gifts

Is there anyone quite as special as Mum? She's always there when you need her. Always ready to dry away your tears, give an encouraging smile, a comforting hug, and wise advice whether you want it or not.

No wonder there's a whole day dedicated to her every year. Mums really deserve Mother's Day. What's more, they deserve lovely Mother's Day gifts.

Now, you know what Mum is like. She's happy you remembered Mother's Day at all. Depending on your track record, she may even be quite surprised that you remembered Mother's Day. Whether you're 5 or 45, she'll be grateful for a home made card, a bunch of daisies picked at the park, or a home-baked fairy cake with "happy Mother's day" clumsily iced on the top.

But come on, now... this is Mum we're talking about. It's Mother's Day. A day to show how much you care, with a thoughtful Mother's Day gift.

In the past, chances are you've bought really traditional Mother's Day gifts. Like flowers, or chocolates. But they're not very imaginative Mother's Day gifts, are they? A bit tired and predictable, if we're honest.

But this is the 21st century. There's no excuse for buying boring Mother's Day gifts these days. Mother's Day gifts should be thoughtful, and personal; Mother's Day gifts should be fun, funky, glamorous, or useful. In fact, the best Mother's Day gifts are a bit of all of these things.

These days, Mother's Day gifts are as variable as mothers themselves. There are different types of Mother's Day gifts for different types of mothers. Whatever type of mum she is, we have a Mother's Day gift she'll love. We have Mother's Day gifts for traditional mums, for modern mums, for outdoor mums and for funky mums. In fact, there isn't a type of mum that we don't have a great Mother's Day gift for. Except, perhaps, the sort of mum that will ground you for a week if you buy her a Mother's Day gift; but in our experience, there aren't many of those around.

Take the 'mumsy mum', for example. Buying a Mother's Day gift for a 'mumsy mum' is pretty straightforward. She lives in the kitchen, rustling up culinary delights at the drop of a hat. There are loads of excellent Mother's Day gifts for her at ShinyShack; you'll find them in our kitchen stuff department, which is rammed to the rafters with Mother's Day gifts for 'mumsy mums'. Like Mother's Day gifts that will make life in the kitchen easier - or at the very least, a bit more interesting. She'll also love the fun, funky and innovative products in our dine and entertain collection; perfect Mother's Day gifts for a 'mumsy mum' with style.

Then there's the 'earth mother'. Choosing a Mother's Day gift for this type of mum is also easy. The 'earth mother' spends a lot of her time in the garden - which is lucky really, since our garden stuff department is a great source of Mother's Day gifts. She'll also love the weird and wonderful seeds and growing kits in our things to grow department; not least because a growing Mother's Day gift is the Mother's Day gift that keeps on giving. Every time she passes her Mother's Day gift in the garden, she'll be reminded of you. Isn't that the most perfect Mother's Day gift ever?

Mother's Day gifts for 'designer mum' can be found in our designer home category, where we stock a huge selection of funky items for the home that make ideal Mother's Day gifts for any mum with great taste. 'Designer mum' will also love a Mother's Day gift from our bathroom stuff collection; or from our personal style department, which is a great place to shop for Mother's Day gifts.

Then there's 'modern mum', who's so cool, all your friends wish she was their mum too. Buying Mother's Day gifts for 'modern mum' is a dream; she's got a great sense of humour, and will appreciate a Mother's Day gift from our unusual gifts collection. She's got her finger on the pulse of technology, too, so Mother's Day gifts from our gadgets and gizmos department will go down a treat. Anything weird and wonderful makes a brilliant Mother's Day gift for this type of mum, so a Mother's Day gift from our silly fun category is bound to be appreciated.

Now, perhaps your mum doesn't fit into any of these categories; or perhaps she's a bit of each. Buying a Mother's Day gift in this case might seem a bit tricky, but actually it's not as difficult to find generic Mother's Day gifts as you might think.

One option is to pamper Mum with some bath and body goodies. You'll be playing it safe with a traditional Mother's Day gift of smellies, but with a bit of an edge, since our bath and body goodies are a bit on the unusual side. For example, our shower caps are perfectly functional but a bit funky too. And our skincare range includes some lovely pampering products that make perfect Mother's Day gifts for any type of mum. Except perhaps mums who don't bathe.

Another option is to give nostalgic Mother's Day gifts. Our retro sweets are perfect for this type of Mother's Day gift; make up a nice basket or gift bag of retro sweets and remind mum of her - or your - childhood. Don't think of it as just a Mother's Day gift; think of it as the gift of time travel, as Mum will be transported back a few years as soon as she claps eyes on this thoughtful Mother's Day gift.

Whatever type of mum you've got, show her that she's appreciated with a thoughtful Mother's Day gift. You'll be in her good books forever.
