We all know how hard it is choosing Christmas presents, but perhaps the hardest gift idea to nail is the one for your mum.

On first glance it seems easy. A nice jumper or vase will be fine, right? Then you remember that 1) mum has seen everything 2) mum has everything 3) mums just know everything, full stop.

Factor in the fact she's listened to your daily ramblings and is really great at the ol' roast dinner thing and suddenly it's a v. hard conundrum indeed.

But, not to worry as we've rounded up some fail-safe gift options that mum will absolutely adore this Christmas. From the luxury to the useful, here's all the xmas gifts for mums that they'll actually love finding under the tree this year.

For the home proud mumIf 'tidy house, tidy mind' is her motto and she loves a spring clean then she'll simply adore this waffle bedding from Dusk. We at the heat team even put it to the test (it's a tough job, but someone has to do it) and, we have to say, these 100% cotton beauties do not disappoint. We slept sound as babies and, what's more, with the textured waffle fabric, you can say goodbye to arduous ironing because these sheets don't crease in the slightest. A minimalist, no-fuss, dreamy night's sleep all wrapped up - what more could you want?

For the glam mumIf you're a fan of Jacquemus and, to put it frankly, don't have the dollar to afford one of the brand's pint sized accessories then look no further. Radley have really got it right this time and just before Christmas, too. Their Liverpool Street 2.0 Mini Grab Bag is a perfect dupe for the FOUR HUNDRED pound designer alternative and, to be quite honest, we kinda love this one more...Made from smooth leather, this bag brings luxury looks at mid-range prices and, with an adjustable and detachable cross-body strap, it's versatile enough to serve as a clutch, too, if you need it. Personally, we love it on the chain, and it's the perfect size for your keys, make-up touch ups and a small card holder/change purse. It's available in four colours and the crimson is just gorgeous if you love a flash of brights, but don't let us be the judge, check it out yourself!

For the ambient mumCandles are undoubtedly the best way to set the evening mood in any household and, with this trio from Aromatherapy Associates, your ma can do just that with the calming scents of rose, camomile and other spa-like aromas. Plus, each candle has been packaged in a lovely ceramic holder - perfect for the upcycling mum to make use of in the kitchen, bathroom or wherever takes her fancy.

For the yoga mumIf child's pose is her safe haven, then send her off to her next class in these oh-so-comfy leggings from Tog24. With a high-waisted belly band they bring support in all the right places and, what's more, the handy zip around the small of your back is the perfect pocket for keys, cards and whatever you don't want to be carrying into the studio.They're squat proof for all her downwards dog bending needs and the breathable wicking fabric also means they double up excellently as running or walking attire. A 3-in-1 purchase, if you will.

For the fizz-loving mumProsecco is a wonderful way to ring in the festive season and, whether your mum is a more-the-merrier sharer or likes a few glasses of tipple to herself in a solo bubble bath (good for her!), this is a thoughtful and indulgent gift either way. The mince pie popcorn is simply delightful with it's crisp and sumptuous spiced caramel shell and, alongside a truffle treat and a citrus-y candle, a glass of refreshing fizz will be the cherry on top of an already impressive cake. (Plus...it's practically gift wrapped, for the lazier of us.)

For the pamper princess mumIf she's the Queen of the mani-pedi, then you've got to make sure you're buying her the crème de la crème of nail polishes and, if you ask us, that's OPI summed up. With opaque, seamless application, OPI is always well-worth the price tag and, for just £20, these four mini bottles are actually a bit of a steal. If you and ma aren't spending Xmas together, Moonpig will deliver this gorgeously packaged gift on a date of your choice and, to save you paying double for postage, they'll send it with your Christmas card for you, too, if you like.

For the chef mumMarrying together mumsy style and kitchen practicality, this fun Emma Bridgewater 3-in-1 stick blender is just the ticket for the mum who's always whipping up a delicious bake or make whenever you're home. It's great for space-starved kitchens, too, saving the lucky receiver from fitting an electric whisk, food processor and blender into cramped cupboards. With two speeds, the blender allows for both chunky and smooth consistency control and, the best news of all, Very have currently got this bad boy on sale with £10 off...so you'd better grab one quick.

For the podcast mumIf Desert Island Disks is her go-to on a crisp winter walk then you've just GOT to give her an upgrade from her usual plug-in headphones. Wireless is by no means new, but the Google Pixel Buds are bringing a new, seamless functionality to the field with these bad boys. We're talking a magnetic drop-in capability in the case itself, so the buds glide effortlessly in when you're finished with them; on top of that you've got instant connectivity to your device(s) from the moment you remove the buds from their case; and lastly, it's a bit of a given, but the sound quality really is top notch.Google's Pixel Buds cost a good chunk less than their Apple competitors but, the thing is, we can't hear much of a difference when it comes to the actual quality. Unlike the standard AirPods, Pixel Buds' base-level earphones come with non-slip silicone tips and, in fact, to benefit from ear tips at Apple, you'd actually have to purchase the AirPod Pros... Naturally, it's a bit of a no brainer for us.

For the bling mumReasonably priced jewellery (that won't make your ears green...) is actually quite hard to find. Luckily, Orelia have really hit the nail on the head with their Christmas offerings for 2021 and these chunky hoops are our personal fave. With 18 karat gold plating, they'll give a high-class look at a low-mid range price point and, what's more, you can have them sent in a gift box for stress-free, organising gifting.

For the cuppa' mumWhether it's tea or coffee, this all-in gift set from Paddy & Scotts will have your ma covered. It's full of only the best of the best, with P&S' craft coffee (and you can REALLY taste the difference) and Tea Pigs' luxury loose leaf tea bags, not to mention it's even got some P&S' brew bags for those days when a cafetiere just isn't realistic before work. Plus, for £31.99, this box comes in at quite a bit cheaper than if you were to buy all the bits separately. We love an economical find ud83dude0d.

For the Marc Jacobs mumIf you don't know the iconic Marc Jacobs' Daisy scent then, seriously, GET TO KNOW. It's the best way to bring summer freshness into the heart of winter (and keep that sunshine feeling alive) and now, with the brand's new Eau So Intense addition, your ma can lap up that delicious fruity floral scent for longer. Yep, it does what it says on the tin: Eau So Intense is a deeper version of the original Daisy collection but brings out those same familiar strawberry and vanilla notes, with a sweet honey and pear twist to really hit home on those bright summer memories.

For the sweet tooth mumLong gone are the days where s'mores were just for our distant neighbours across the pond. Indeed, thanks to the guys at The Naked Marshmallow Co. you can now get your Graham cracker-chocolatey-marshmallowy fix in good old Blighty and, because TNMC are just that good, they've upgraded the US snack, bringing you luxury handmade biscuits, vanilla bean gourmet marshmallows and, to top it all off, your own indoor marshmallow toaster. What could be better?

For the full-face mumIf she loves getting all glammed up for a night out with the gals, then she'll adore this set from Ciaté with all the best bits to prime, set and keep your make-up going throughout the night. Start with the hydrating Watermelon Burst primer to ensure foundation blends seamlessly and doesn't look cakey and then, once you've concealed, set and gone through all your usual beauty steps, apply the Glossy Cheek Glow to bring out the high points of your face. Coat those lashes with the DREAMY Triple Shot Mascara, spritz with the Coconut Setting Spray et voila - a night out lewk with ultimate staying power ud83dudcaa.

For the skincare guru mumThe skincare world has become quite overwhelming in recent years and, in all honesty, it's often hard to know where to begin. Thankfully, with REN, skincare doesn't have to send your head in a spin. REN have been on the skincare hype before Gwyneth Paltrow had even BEGUN to think about launching Goop and, with their prior years in the industry, their products are second to none. If you don't know your mum's skin type, the Evercalm range is as safe a bet as they go. Designed for the most sensitive of skins, its soothing formula is just perfect for winter and has been known to calm down all matter of flare ups. The eco-friendly carry case is a cute and on-brand addition to make this set all the more gift worthy this Christmas and, what's more, at £56, the set cuts down around £15 of costs compared to buying both the individual products. Pretty good, right?

For the luxury mumIf your mum likes the finer things in life, then you know she'll love finding this Monica Vinader pearl necklace under the tree. With 18ct Gold Plated Vermeil and a gorgeously textured Keshi pearl, this piece is a younger take on the traditional string of pearls and, if you ask us, it's so much for wearable.

For the gin mumIf a glass of Hendricks and tonic is her go-to tipple, then you should absolutely upgrade her Friday night serve with these unique and modern-style goblet glasses from iStyle My Home. At £14.99 they're the perfect affordable gift or stocking filler and, if you fancy taking the present up a notch, why not buy two sets and tie it all together with a bottle of her gin of choice?

For the SLS free mumWith the rise of TikTok haircare routines through 2020 and 2021, everyone's on top of how to properly look after their locks...and mum should by no means be left behind. Fix up her tresses this Christmas with Monday's affordable (and LIT) gentle shampoo and conditioner duo. They're sold separately (conditioner HERE) but, at just £5.50 each and free next day delivery if you have ASOS Premier, well, it's too good a deal to pass up.

For the cosy mumGetting into your jammies at the end of a cold long day is one of life's greatest pleasures, so why not treat your ma to the pyjama pick o' the bunch with Boux Avenue's iconic PJs in a Bag. We're obsessed with these burgundy plaid ones; they're the perfect deep shade to still be festive, while also remaining neutral enough to wear year round. Oh, and they're the comfiest things you'll ever put on your body...trust us.

For the salad sensation mumPre-dressing a salad may be the best way to be organised with dinner guests, but it's also going to leave your leaves wilted and, err, soggy. Bypass the issue altogether with this perfectly formed oil bottle from Denby Pottery - just whip up your dressing, decant it into the bottle and place it alongside your salad. It'll draw admiration and attention from your guests and you can say goodbye to squidgy spinach.

For the beauty fanatic mumLight up mirrors aren't anything new these days, but this EKO Sensor Mirror really is making waves in the make-up application industry. Whether it's eyeshadow or eyebrows, the EKO iMira Pro will make high-def, precise application seem achievable with its three light settings (natural, bright and warm), height adjustability and touch-activated brightness control. The brand's competitor, Simple Human, charge pretty much double for their touch system and, if we're totally honest, we think this one's quite a bit sleeker...

For the curly girl mumIf she, like the rest of lockdown Britain, got into proper curly hair maintenance in one of the many months we were stuck at home earlier this year, then a diffuser is the natural next step to speed up her natural locks' routine. The great thing about the Bellissima diffuser is that it's not a clip-on for your existing hairdryer which, if you've never tried diffusing before, essentially means that it's half the weight. The 12 prods keep significant chunks of hair in place as it sets the strands into their luscious curls and, what's more, the Bellissima's mild and gentle heat (FYI, still hot enough) won't burn your scalp while you hold it in place. It's a great product for a mum trying to get along with her curls and at less than £40, it's way cheaper than a hairdryer-diffuser combo.

For the natural look mumAs we get older, for many of us, keeping our natural hair and skin in good nick becomes more of a priority. Thing is, replacing all the many potions and lotions that various brands recommend us can easily rack up several hundreds of £££s and, often enough, you have to try multiple different brands to even know what suits. Enter the silk pillowcase...Not a new phenomenon, but one that's just as relevant in 2021 as when they first came on the scene, the silk pillowcase is a more longterm solution to hair breakage and anti-aging skincare. Made from 100% mulberry silk, The Silk Collection pillow cases allow for your skin and hair to glide across the surface of the fabric gently, thus minimising any damage or irritation to those areas. While £65 is likely more than your standard moisturising cream (well, unless you're an Elizabeth Arden fan ud83dudc40), in terms of cost longterm, it actually works out cheaper as you probably won't need to top up your routine with added anti-wrinkle and retinol creams. Some food for thought...

For the small business mumSupporting small businesses is an especially nice thing to do around Christmastime and, if your mum loves a festive candle, Smell The World will be the brand for her. In luxuriously classy matte glasses with a 100 per cent soy wax filling, Smell The World candles bring big-name brand quality (AHEM Jo Malone) for half the price. The candles have an impressively long burn time (trust us, we gave them a good 'ole go) and they honestly do smell delicious. We'll be burning ours all through the festive period, and you should too.

For the Aesop wannabe mumEveryone dreams of having those gorgeous brown glass bottles in their bathroom but, the thing is, not many of us can afford the whopping £27 price tag to go with them. With Compagnie de Provence, a single bottle of their heavenly scented handwash (seriously, the scent takes you straight to the hills of southern France) will only set you back around £12 and, for Christmas, they've even put together a perfect gift duo with their White Tea lotion. Bottled in a luxurious ceramic container that you can buy (cheaper) refills for, Compagnie de Provence has easily scratched our Aesop itch and, if you needed anymore convincing, the brand is even stocked at Liberty - the height of scent society, if you ask us.

For the glowy mumTinted moisturiser isn't anything new and the Olay 7 Effects CC is a fave with mums nationwide. This Christmas, give mum an upgrade on her supermarket face base with Erborian's renowned barely there CC creams. We're not joking when we tell you that you can apply these bad boys with your eyes closed and rock up to work looking like a 10/10. The CC red correct will offset any colouration concerns and the OG CC will subtly smooth for the glowiest of lewks. We cannot recommend them enough.

For the highlights mumIf she's been popping to the salon to get a root touch up or a half head then she needs this gift set from Boucléme in her life. With four lifesaving products - including toning drops, a hair cleanser, conditioner and intensive moisture treatment - her locks will be back in tip top condition in no time and, to be quite honest, they'll do the job for a hell of a lot less £££ than a certain O brand ud83dudc40.
