Mother’s Day wishes come true with

Evidence shows that mums are often having to organise their own Mother’s Day treats (32% of mothers), and that there is a clear disparity between what children plan to buy their mum (top answer – flowers at 57%) and what mums actually want (a hug, something home-made or a lie-in).

This year, a free website,, is helping mothers get the recognition they deserve on their special day. Mums can create a wish list for all the things they want, be it shop-bought or home-made and share it through one simple email or social media. Unlike other online wish lists, mothers can also leave a trail of visual clues to stoke loved ones’ imaginations – their favourite perfumes, chocolates or flowers, or simply the idea of breakfast in bed. enables people to create an inspirational scrapbook or mood board of all their favourite things; ideal gifts, dream experiences, preferred colours and wardrobe styles.

The site is a free and useful tool all year-round. Those really hard-to-buy-for people, who always leave you stumped every birthday and Christmas, can now use the site to reveal a wealth of ideas, making shopping for them a whole lot easier. Loved ones can share lists filled with inspiring clues, hinting at the ideal gifts they would like to receive. A smart checklist shows when someone has elected to buy an item so no-one gets the same gift twice. also helps you build a calendar of special events, such as birthdays, to remind you to organise the perfect present in time.

In a 2015 Mumsnet survey, 32% of respondents said they had to remind their partners when Mother’s Day was coming up – doubting that their other halves would remember otherwise. Over a quarter of respondents (28%) said that their partner had previously forgotten to buy them a card or gift, or to organise cards or gifts from the children. Click here for full survey results.
