Mother’s Day is nearly here so why not show her how special she is with the perfect gift.
Remember though, only buy things if you can afford it. Otherwise a card and a hug will do the job just as well. Here are some of the deals Moneywise has found:
Flowers are always a popular choice on Mother’s Day, so why not treat her with a big bouquet to let her know how important she is.
Marks and Spencer is selling a number of bouquets this year that come with free chocolates for £35.
Eflorist also has same great deals with up to £15 off.
Aldi has range of flowers for people on all budgets starting from £2.99 for a bouquet – in store from 28 March.
At the other end of the spectrum, Waitrose has a number of bundles to choose from, ranging from £20 to £100. If you fancy splashing out the store is offering a £50 gift set which includes a tin of delicious gingerbread.
A spa day makes the perfect Mother’s Day treat, giving her time to unwind and pamper herself.
Virgin is offering up to 50% a variety of its Virgin Experience Spa days, including a deal at Bannatyne Health Clubs for £99.
Other offers include a Marriot Relaxation Day with treatment for two at your choice of Marriot Hotel.

What’s the catch?
With the restaurant deals you are limited by the options on the set menu.
What other options do I have?
Rather than spending money with one of the chains listed, you might want to try eating locally for something cheaper.
