Is that awful feeling dawning on you that Mother's Day is just 3 days away....and you have nothing to give mum (other than 3 year old Lindt balls you found at the back of the cupboard?) 
Never fear, SWLS is here! 
Below is an assortment of lovely gifts for your mum, and whether she's into cooking, gardening, movies, wine, or just really lovely things, Sleuth has you covered. 
Most can be purchased online, but with MD close on the horizon, double check delivery to your area, otherwise you may have to make a trip to your local shops with the below ideas in mind and make a purchase that shows mum just how much you love her.
Don't forget the card.....mums always love a little hand scribbled note to show them you care. 
So enjoy your champagne brunches on Sunday and feel great about rocking up with one of the below fab gifts for your fab mum.
