There's the sweetest Chinese proverb that says, "There's only one beautiful baby in the world, and every mother has him!"

Indeed, mums are all too familiar with the visceral, all-consuming, unconditional, heart-stopping type of love they have for their children.

So, tomorrow, for Mother's Day, it's fitting for all of us to take a little time to show gratitude for that special love shown to us - because where would we be without our mums?

A mother's unconditional love acts as our True North to help guide us and navigate our life's journey - from plump-cheeked babe in arms to adulthood to experiencing motherhood ourselves.

There's a pretty little rhyme I spotted recently that says a mum is "like the roots that anchor trees / Like the Queen who rules her bees / You're a sturdy oak, a beam / The staunch defender of our team / You're the linchpin, axis, core / The lighthouse guiding us to shore."

For this year's Mother's Day, let's show gratitude to all the mums and grandmothers out there, while also thinking of and including those who may not have experienced motherhood themselves for different reasons, but who still hold that divine spark of maternal grace, compassion, nurturing, care and kindness within them - and have used that spark to be wonderful aunts and godmothers and supporters to their loved ones.

Use this gift guide as inspiration for choosing a little something special this year for mums at every stage of motherhood - from the excited but exhausted mother- to-be and new mum, to the multi-tasking busy mum who may be juggling a few little ones with work and other commitments, to the 'glamother' - the glam grandmother who has come over the other side of full-on child rearing with hopefully a bit more space and time for some well- deserved self-care. Happy Mother's Day!
