For the special lady in your life…Mother’s Day.

She’s made you endless sandwiches, mopped up every tear, listened to every moan & groan and still remembers the way you like your tea. The unsung hero of our day to day lives, it’s now time to give a little back to the main woman in our lives – our mother.

I’m using this as the perfect opportunity to spoil mine rotten and if like me, you want to treat her to something a bit special, hosiery is the way forward this Mother’s Day. I think it’s safe to say that the appeal of manically traipsing up and down high streets has been lost on me, so I couldn’t think of anything more blissful than shopping on my sofa with a cup of tea in one hand (a dash of milk, no sugar thanks mum!). Whether you live home or away, that thoughtful gift is a click of a button away, eliminating any department store induced stress at the same time.

If your mother is a fan of all things fancy but categorically refuses to buy if for herself, then why not choose some Wolford? Both gorgeous and luxurious, the Wolford Tulip Tights are great for adding a spring into her step, just in time for the weather to warm up. With a charming tulip print throughout, these look sweet when teamed with that dress you got her for Christmas.

For mothers who prefer a more practical gift, then the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights are the answer. As one of my personal favourites, I can vouch for the opaque tights, delivering function alongside fashion with every wear. Made in 7 fabulous shades, there is a colour for the fussiest of mums out there, and the thick tights will protect her pins from any leftover chill in the air.

Like Mother, Like Daughter? Excluding any ensemble worn between the ages of 12-21, my mother has always been a fan of my wardrobe, and of course, my hosiery collection. In order to stop one of my new favourites going amiss, these Mary Portas & Charnos Baroque Floral Tights are a must! Created by the Queen of Shop herself, Mary Portas, these come in three beautiful shades, with a subtle metallic thread adding a touch of luxe shimmer.

For mums who know their Blu-ray from their Bluetooth, then the latest textile technology may just appeal. Look no further than the new Charnos Emana Control Tights. Made with the unique Emana yarn, these will make her feel good along with looking great.Working to get the blood circulation of your legs going, legs are left glowing, whilst the clock is turned back on any unwanted ageing signs. Featured in the Financial Times, these are the pair to get her & her friends gossiping over!

Now, mums can sometimes be a stubborn bunch, refusing any sort of gift other than a homemade pasta shapes card (yes, sometimes we like to get the PVA glue out), but we’ve got just the thing to get around that. By re-marketing your gift as a top up of ‘everyday essentials’, she can hardly refuse. Falke Shelina Tights should be right at the top of the list, as they are mine. Spring has crept up rather quickly, so soon rainy, blustery days will be replaced with sunshine. With that comes shorter hemlines and the need for Kate Middleton barely there sheers. The Shelina Tights offer coverage and peace of mind, as the illusion of flawless legs is created – a favourite in the office as well!

And for those ankles? It’s not unknown that some of us prefer the little things in life, and this applies to mothers too. From the everyday cotton numbers, to the more luxurious cashmere, there is a pair for all! As we’re currently stuck in a tricky transitional month weather-wise, socks are great when worn under boots. For me, nothing says love more than cashmere socks, so the Pantherella Candy Knee Highs are going straight into my shopping basket for her. The cashmere makes them wonderfully soft against the leg, redefining comfort every time they’re pulled on, whilst the fresh Spring shades bring a little light to any rainy day. If you know she won’t wear a knee high boot, try the shorter Pantherella Candy Anklet version which packs just as much charm.dleton barely there sheers.
