How to make sure your mum loves her Valentine's Day gift

It's the thought that counts: Mothers generally won't want you to spend a lot of money on the present you buy them. However a wonderful bunch of flowers or some chocolates - even something for the kitchen (if they enjoy cooking) - will always be well received.

Work with your budget: Don't bother looking at gifts that are outside your budget, you're not going to buy them. And before you pay for your item, always double check that there are no discounts or coupon codes floating around the internet. You'd be surprised by how often stores have sneaky discount codes that you never hear about.

Include a sweet message on the card: Some well thought out words will go a long way to making your Mum feel loved on Valentine's Day. Mums love cards especially when she can see that you've put time into the message.
