It’s just over a week until Mother’s Day, so here are some great ways to spend more on your mum without breaking the bank.
1. Send Flowers
Always a winner. What mum doesn’t like a nice bunch of flowers delivered? There are loads of good places to try, but we like Bunches.co.uk as the flowers are good quality and really good value for the price. They offer free delivery, a free box of chocs and you can currently get 10% off an order too. Enter the code BUNMAR14. It’s valid on any item until 1st April 2014.
We’ve ordered them for our Mums and Grans recently and they’ve been really happy.

2. Change the Chanel
Marilyn loved it, so does my fiancée. Does your mum? Well if so, you can get a 50ml bottle of Chanel No 5 Eau Du Parfum Spray from The Fragrance Store for just £53.20. It’s normally £67. In fact you can get 20% off any perfume with the O2 Priority Moments App. This is in store only.
If you’re not on O2, Boots has a sale on fragrances or you can also get £5 off selected ones with the code FRAG5
3. Bake A Cake
Yes you can buy one, but won’t mum be impressed that you’ve taken the time to carefully craft a tasty treat?
A few weeks ago we made this delicious cheesecake after seeing Philadelphia on offer. Right now the best deals are a 300g pot from Tesco for £1.20 (save 50%), or a 200g pot from Asda for £1 (save 44%).
If you bought the ingredients in Tesco you could make a massive one for £6.90, or as we discovered, you can half it (and the price) and still have more than enough for everyone.
Here’s the recipe we used.
4. Shower Her With Smellies
There’s always a deal at The Body Shop nowadays, and right now they’re not bad. You can get £20 off a £40 spend, 40% off any spend (you get free delivery over £30) or 35% off and free delivery on orders over £5. These are all online though and expires on 26th March. You can get £10 off a £25 spend in-store until 30th March.

5. Chocs Chocs Chocs
O2 customers can use their app to get 10% off in Hotel Chocolat shops.
If you’re not on O2, or want to order online, use the code HC10SPR14. Min £35 spend. Click here to see what they’ve got.
6. Give Her The Silent Treatment
Though she loves you, she might also quite like some peace and quiet. Spa packages are always popping up on group buying sites. They can offer big discounts as they buy the offer in bulk. Have a shop around to see what works best for you (and your mum).
Try Groupon, Living Social and Amazon Local for the best deals.
7. Get Drunk (With Her)
Ocado have a half price deal on San Leo Prosecco NV. Good Housekeeping voted it their top supermarket prosecco for Christmas and New Year, so at only £5.24 a bottle, it’s a bubbly bargain.
You could also get some nice juices (we like orange and mango) to add to make a simple cocktail.
If you haven’t ordered from them before, you’ll be able to get £10 off the first order over £50. You can also often get free delivery spots. Click here to order.
