    It’s Christmas time! And that means lots of shopping – and bloody awful crowds. Fortunately for you, we’ll be flooding our pages with gift guides this month, so keep an eye out for more here.

    Let's be real – Christmas is one of the only times of the year you think of showing your wallet to the person who may have carried, birthed, maybe even fed you with her body.

    Having procreated and spawned several offspring myself, I feel I am in a unique position to tell you all what it is your mothers actually want this December 25. Here are 12 things to get your mum for Christmas.

    1. These Jaggar Crown Leather Mules, which my children/husband should absolutely get for me.

    2. This Nespresso Pod & Parcel Super Sample Pack that will give her fix of caffeine in biogradable, compostable pods.

    3. These Le Specs Together Again sunnies to replace the ones she's been wearing since before your conception.

    4. This book, Conversations With Friends by Sally Rooney, because I would read a shopping list for fun if she wrote it.

    5. This electric Shiatsu neck and back massager that will rid her body of all the knots you undoubtedly put there.

    6. This Aesop The Humourist Seasonal Gift Kit which will first cleanse then hydrate her hardworking body from head to toe.

    7. An Audible subscription, which you won't even have to pay for in the first month.

    8. This Rosefield The Boxy watch that is completely ~timeless~.

    9. This Country Road Linen Midi Wrap Skirt that she can wear absolutely anywhere.

    10. This book, Grace: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue – a pretty enough coffee table book that it will actually get cracked open.

    11. The Echo Dot smart speaker, because she deserves to have things made easier for her.

    12. And finally, this smart ceramic mug that will ensure her coffee never goes cold again.
