Which Mum is mine? – Gifts for Mum
When we hear the word ‘Mum’ we all think of our own mothers; we draw from our own experiences and whether we might call her ‘Mum’, ‘Mother’, ‘Mummy’, ‘Mom’ or ‘Mam’ the associations that come with the word are all similar.
That leading lady in your life is everything from the caring, loving and friendly mother who after any challenging day is still upbeat and gleeful to the nagging, annoying, angry, irritating, stressful mum who loves a bit of a conflict and that coat you slung over the sofa will need to be ‘TIDIED UP NOW!’ Or she might be frugal, sensible, educated or just downright hilarious. I am sure every single person reading this will have picked at least one word from the list above that describes their mother down to a tee. Here we describe the 7 typical mother types, their strengths, complexities, legacies and things that they love, so take a look to find out the answer to your question, ‘Which Mum is mine?’

The Perfectionist Mum – Gifts for Mum
Everything has to be perfect, well-kept and organised. Typically over-controlling, pedantic and appearance seems to be everything. She has a strong sense of commitment, is extremely hard-working and her standards are so high you often feel you have to climb Everest to be good enough. Albeit, at the end of the day, you know everything she does, is all for the reason that she loves you. She may be a bit hard up but she only wants to see you thrive. Why not take a leaf out of her book and start looking for the perfect gift for her.

Wolfgang Amadeus who? The classical music lover, the poet, the walking encyclopedia. The mum who knows everything from novels to musicians to winning the local pub quiz every week. Perhaps she dabbles in a light piano or violin playing every so often. This kind of mother is envied but just because she’s book smart, she doesn’t know it all. Bring her back down to earth with the gift of love. Whether you decide to take her to the Royal Albert Hall, the ballet or to a viewing of her favourite Shakespeare play, she will certainly need something to accompany that splendid dress of hers.

The Modern Mum – Gifts for Mum
Do you ever look at your mum and think, seriously, how do you look younger than me? We all know a mum who looks too cool, too nonchalant, too tech-savvy and often we envy them. Sitting gracefully in an armchair with Vogue in one hand, iPad in the other, wearing her new heels paired with the season’s top picks. Some may call her Catalogue mum. If yours is a mum who loves style, fashion and the top of the range goods, make sure you keep her updated with these gorgeous pieces.
