Hark back to the golden age of rail travel while treating your mum to a seven course lunch on the luxurious setting of the Northern Belle train.

With a range of day trips from York, Darlington, Durham and Newcastle on Friday 20 and Edinburgh and Glasgow on Saturday 21 March , guest can look forward to a glass of champagne on arrival, and a seven course seasonal menu with a bottle of wine, followed by tea or coffee and petite fours. There will also be a gift for your mum and magic tricks from an on-board magician.

The round trip is priced at £265 per passenger and more info is available on the Northern Belle website.

The New Eye Concentrate, La Mer

Give your mum the gift of glowing skin this Mother's Day with the newly released, New Eye Concentrate from La Mer. La Mer has created the Concentrate as a formula that nourishes, hydrates and helps stabilise the look of the fragile eye area to give smoother, brighter, healthier looking eyes.

This advanced treatment, priced at £180, says it reduces the look of dark circles, lines and wrinkles and helps prevent future visible damage before it starts.

The latest limited edition from Jo Malone celebrates that age old calming scent of lavender. Now no longer something your granny might wear, lavender has been paired with other spring fragrances such as silver birch, wisteria, and herbs like coriander.

The range, priced at £50 per perfume, also includes a reed diffuser. If you really want to treat your mum, why not head to one of the free in-store events to experience the collection, decorate an iconic Jo Malone box and enjoy a glass of fizz?

Harris Wild Rose tincture

If your mum is a gin fan then treat her to the latest release from the Harris Distillery - Harris Wild Rose tincture.

The Harris Wild Rose tincture, priced at £20, is the first release from the Isle of Harris Distillery’s new drinks apothecary range, designed to complement Isle of Harris Gin serves and cocktails. Simply add as required to your Harris gin and tonics or martinis to create subtle new variations of the Harris serve. The tincture will also turn any drink a pale pink.

This small batch creation of only 394 bottles is made from wild rose petals, picked in the village of Northton in South Harris. The tincture is balanced with sloes which have been ageing for the last three years, bergamot peel picked in Cyprus and elderberries foraged in Sussex.

L'Occitane rose hand creams

French skincare brand L'Occitane has a range of gift sets ideal for Mother's Day, including this rose hand cream range, priced at £21.

The set includes three 30ml delightfully named hand creams - Burst of Relaxation Hand Cream, Burst of Cheerfulness Hand Cream, and Burst of Vitality Hand Cream. The brand also supports local producers in order to remain sustainable.

If your mum is the outdoors type then a pair of iconic wellies may be right up her street. Hunter has been the must-have brand since Kate Moss was seen sporting them at Glastonbury. Available in classic black or on trend seasonal styles such as metallic, there's a shade to suit every mum.

Hunter will also be offering a Mother’s Day flower bouquet gift with purchase on 21 March for those in London. Customers who spend £100 or more will be able to take home a flower posy from JamJar Flowers.

Gold magnum of prosecco

Celebrate your mum in style with this gold magnum of prosecco from M&S.

The supermarket's best-selling Conte Priuli Oro prosecco, priced at £18, is now available in a larger bottle for double the fizz.

Darphin Mother’s Day set

This new Darphin skincare set covers a full routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising and offers spa-like pampering at home. The chamomile and floral scents will relax while the anti-ageing properties in each product will leave skin feeling fresh.

The set, priced at £45.50, contains Intral cleansing milk with Chamomile, Intral toner with Chamomile, Intral redness relief soothing serum, Hydraskin Light all-day skin-hydrating cream Gel, 8-Flower nectar elixir, and hand and nail cream with rosewater

Mother's Day flowers biscuit tin

The good folk at Biscuiteers have once again created a picture perfect box of biscuits that will make an ideal Mother's Day gift.

Available in various box sizes, from single biscuits to a range of 12, the treats are all hand decorated and come in a lovely keepsake tin. Plus, right now they have 15 per cent off Mother's Day boxes, so this set is currently £35.

Emma Bridgewater Mum mug

Serve mum breakfast in bed and show how much you care with a hand-painted mug (£19.95) from Emma Bridgewater.

The Wallflower pattern was designed by Emma and is inspired by the Pheasant's Eye' narcissi in her garden. The design compliments the polka dot range and comes boxed - making it easy to wrap.
