Somewhere along the way (likely due to a combination of misogyny and ageism) the word 'mumsy' became a bit of a dig. Synonymous – perhaps unfairly – with sensible handbags and practical footwear, it means that Mother’s Day gifts are often uninspiring – and we for one think your fave lady deserves better than that.
So if you're looking for something a bit more special than a novelty mug this March, you’ll be happy to know that R29 has rounded up some of the loveliest presents on the internet. To make your job even easier, we’ve organised our gift guide by personality type.
Does your mum tear through hobbies like they're going out of fashion? We’ve got just the thing. How about an auntie who gives you a run for your money in the wardrobe department? We’ve got her covered, too. And if you’re buying for the person who has everything, we have a dedicated section for them as well.
To find the perfect gift for the mum, grandma, auntie or other maternal figure in your life this Mother’s Day, click through the slideshow ahead…
