Mother's Day is fast approaching, but it can often be hard to find a gift that really shows your Mum just how much your love her.

Fear not though, here at thebestof aberdeen we only work with the most recommended businesses in the city, so you know that whatever you buy for your Mum will be of the highest quality at the right price.

If you're saying it with flowers this year, head straight to our recommended florists, Aberflora, Four Seasons and Petals of Peterculter. They can create beautiful bouquets and arrangements using your Mum's favourite flowers before delivering them to her doorstep for you.

Finding a unique gift for your Mum is much easier with a visit to Rosie's, which stocks hand illustrated cards, hand crafted gifts and original artwork. Or how about picking up a one-off piece of jewellery made by the talented team at The Jewellery Box?

Treating your mum to a indulgent day at one our professional hair and beauty businesses is another idea, giving her a chance to relax, unwind and take a little time out for herself. Or you could take her out to one of our many restaurants, which are highly recommended for their sumptuous food and shining service.

- On the way to church, children would pick flowers for their mothers, a tradition which developed into giving gifts.
