Being a mum is a tough gig. With a never ending list of jobs to juggle, there never seems to be enough hours in the day to simply sit down and put your feet up.

Mother's Day is the one day of the year that mums can be let off 'mothering duties' and do whatever they like… even if that's sitting in their dressing gown all day and not lifting a finger!

We've searched out some great deals for you to treat your mum and help her chill out this Mother's Day.

And… relax

Mums love nothing more than a bit of relaxation and luckily for you finding the right chill-out deal doesn’t have to be a stress for you either.

Give your mum the 'me-time' she deserves this year with a spa day or break. Wahanda offer deals at almost 400 venues up and down the country - and many are over 50% off. are also offering deals from as little as £29 where your mum can spend some quality time getting pampered with a range of treatments.

If a getaway day or weekend isn't in your budget this year, you can do it at home instead. Bag some Superdrug 'better than half price' Radox, run her a hot bubble bath and lock her in the bathroom for half an hour. That'll do the trick just as well!

Dig into a box of chocs

While mums seem to be continuously dieting, it's no secret that they love chocolate.

Asda have got some great deals for the chocoholic mum. Check out their Dairy Box, Milk Tray and Black Magic boxes down to £3 from a fiver. For those mums who like a bit of variety, you can't go wrong with a box of Roses - down to £2.50 at Morrisons. So even if you've got a fussy mum, there's sure to be something to get those taste buds tingling.

If you're not sure what to get your mum, chocolates are a fail-safe gift. Thornton's makes sweet treats personal too, with its alphabet truffles. You can go online and spell out a special message for your mum in individual and delicious chocolates. They're £14.99 for 22 or £19.99 for 33.

A special flowery delivery

Alongside chocolates, flowers are a traditional Mother's Day gift and it'd be difficult to find a mum who doesn’t want flowers.

Lots of places are selling beautiful bouquets especially for the mums in our lives. Asda, Tesco, Interflora, Next… the list goes on.

Even with deals around this time of year, unfortunately flowers aren't the cheapest gift option. The best deals we could find were from Serenata Flowers who have a huge selection.

Strawberry Sunday is one of their best sellers with a combination of lilies, carnations and roses for £19.99 - down from £24.99. If you want something more vibrant, you could brighten up the house this Mother's Day with a colourful mix of oranges and reds. The Amazonia bouquet is on sale at £19.99 from £26.99. They're free delivery too!

Snuggle up with a fry up

Making Mother's Day special doesn’t have to cost the earth. If you're a bit strapped for cash this year, it's the gifts that cost very little (or even nothing, sometimes) that mean the most. Breakfast in bed is the perfect option... especially when a cheeky bit of fizz is involved. What? Drinking so early is allowed - it's Mother's Day!

Tesco are giving you a helping hand on this one with half price Prosecco for £6.49. Morrisons also have a half price deal on sparkling wine, so you can bag this Spanish white at £5.99 instead of £12.99. Bargain.

Then it's just sorting the food.

Why not treat your mum continental style this Mother's Day? Aldi's bakery does a wide range of delicious pastry treats. You can buy four luxury croissants for £1.29 and their marble brioche comes in both vanilla and chocolate flavour for £1.69. Yummy! Add a glass of apple or orange juice and Bob's your uncle.

Lastly, you could just go with the traditional fry up for your mum and can do it for just over a fiver (£5.03) at Asda. Head there for your eggs, bacon, sausages, toast some bread, put the kettle on and take her breakfast in bed. Job done! One relaxed mum and one smug offspring.

Mother's Day isn't about how much you spend. It's about making your mum feel special. So whether you spend a fortune on her or simply spend some quality time with her, she'll appreciate it.
