She’s your mum, you love her and she’s a star.  That’s our nifty setup for this Emma Bridgewater Starry Skies set of three mini mug candles in a starry box.  After she’s read the ‘Lots of Love’ message and enjoyed the candles, she can drink her espresso out of the little cups which are microwave and dishwasher safe.  And it’s a neat package if you need to tuck it into your suitcase to fly home to mum.  £30.
Your mother’s a bright woman who appreciates intelligent design, so these Imperial Eazigrip Ergonomic Saucepans will delight her.  It’s a set of three saucepans sized 16cm, 18cm and 20cm, suitable for all types of cooker with pour and strain glass lids.  They’re dishwasher safe and come with a ten year guarantee.  And the ergo design keeps the strain away.  Normally £79.99, now £49.70.

Wouldn’t your mother love to have more workspace in her kitchen?  Well, without calling the kitchen installers, you can make her wish come true with this fully assembled butcher’s block kitchen trolley.  Made by T & G Woodware, the Viva trolley has an easily extendible work surface, a pair of drawers, slatted storage shelves, knife rack, towel rail and a four-bottle wine rack.  Two of the wheels lock.  Your only problem is how to wrap it.  £359.00.
Le Creuset’s bright cherry-coloured line in heart stoneware says ‘I Love You.’  These 1/3 litre ramekins are £7 each.  Buy a few!

And she may need someplace to rest her cookbook, like this pretty cast iron cookbook stand with weighted page-holders  that keep the page open for £36.99.

If you’d like to help your mother make sure she gets her five a day, this Philips HR 1861 juicer is the real deal, a superquick whole fruit juicer that can go in the dishwasher.  It’s £78.99.
