Our top Mother’s Day tips for 2016

1. A case of exquisite wines

aldi wines mixed selection

Shopping for someone who’d appreciate six award-winning bottles of vino? Wine lovers all over the UK are discovering Aldi’s compelling range of quality wines, which include celebrated varieties endorsed by the experts at International Wine Challenge. Available in cases of six bottles, these wines are exceptional value for money. We recommend the Exquisite Mixed Case (£38.24); a selection of reds and whites with an average bottle price of £6.37. And there’s no need to worry about taking delivery of such a bulky item at your own home, as you can now order Aldi’s wine cases with click & collect to your local CollectPlus store.

2. The ultimate home spa set


Candles, bath robes, slippers and towels may all seem like obvious Mothering Sunday suggestions, but The White Company takes these old favourites to another dimension. Its range of luxurious and long-lasting products will be welcome additions to any home, and the soothing scents and plush fabrics will help create that spa environment at every bath time. From top left, clockwise: Verveine candle (£20), White hydrocotton robe (£65), Waffle slippers (15), Pearl grey Egyptian towels (from £4). All available with CollectPlus click & collect.

3. An extraordinary cuppa


If you’d like to reverse the roles and ‘be mother’ for the day by serving up some mugs of steaming tea, we urge you to check out Teapigs, who brilliant brews are now available to click & collect with CollectPlus. A tin of their tea ‘temples’ makes for a lovely gift – not only because you’ll get to enjoy the contents together whenever you visit (if she hasn’t beaten you to it), but because the colourful storage tins can be kept and re-used afterwards. Each tin costs £9.95, with a great mix of classic and alternative varieties to choose from. Buy at Teapigs.

4. Handbag hound


Radley’s playful range of purses, bags and other accessories make gorgeous gifts, and this coral-coloured ‘Heritage Dog’ purse is a great example of the brand’s elegant simplicity. For mothers who prefer a more classic colour palette, it’s also available in golden tan leather, as well as a delicate sherbert pink. Available to click & collect from your CollectPlus store, Heritage Dog is £55 at Radley.

5. The gift of great skin


Origins’ range of luxury skincare products make great Mother’s Day gifts, and they’re available to buy using our handy click & collect method from John Lewis. We think this pot of ‘A Perfect World’ moisturiser, which contains extracts of white tea, would make for a particularly welcome present: its lightly-whipped texture gives great moisture, while the fragrance is wonderfully uplifting. Buy it for £36 at John Lewis.

6. Fab fragrance


Jo Malone’s botanically-inspired scents are the stuff of legend, and we think there’s no better way to experience them than in the form of an intense and full-bodied cologne. This peony and blush suede variety smells deliciously warming and would make an ideal gift. Along with a wide range of alternative scents, it’s available to buy for £85 at House of Fraser.
