No idea what to get Mum on Mother’s Day? Kasmiah Mustapha has some great suggestions
1- Yes, you are probably bored with the idea of giving chocolates. But this is no ordinary chocolate — the Godiva 2012 Coeur Selection is packed in a jewel-case. Even if your mum doesn’t want chocolate, she certainly will change her mind when she sees the 12-piece classic chocolate. The flavours include the Coeur Noir, which is dark chocolate filled with 70 per cent Papua New Guinea dark chocolate paste, and the pure Coeur Blanc — white chocolate filled with hazelnut praline.

2 - Dangling earrings, necklace and diamond ring from Carrera y Carrera will make her day. The Sol y Sombra collection reflects the Spanish character and roots of the company. With its sun motif, your mother will look adorable and elegant.
3 - If your mother loves sandals, get her Arena, the latest design from FitFlop. The Arena slide sandals are a simple linear design with resin stone, in tan and black, featuring super cushioned triple-density microwobble board midsole for comfort, ensuring that your mother will not experience discomfort when walking around town.
4 - Pamper her with this Petitgrain Hydrating Body Gel from Aesop. It is light, absorbs quickly and cools skin suffering from sun exposure, waxing or shaving. The gel will hydrate without leaving a greasy film. It is suitable for the humid climate and for all skin types. It can be applied as often as required to hydrate skin from neck to toe. Use to calm and revive the skin.
5- Choose any of these three limited edition fragrances from Body Shop — Dreams Unlimited, Love Etc or White Musk. If she loves floral scents with lemon, sandalwood and musk or the smell of mandarin, watermelon and jasmine, these will be perfect for her.
