For the simple mother
If your mother has simple tastes the best gift you can give her is a deliciously made home cooked meal. Breakfast in bed is an ideal way to start off your Mother’s Day. Give her a break and let her relax while you do all the household chores. There is no mother who doesn’t like flowers, so walk into Narcissus, buy a beautiful bouquet and get 10 per cent off your purchase.
