Here's the third and final part of our Mother's Day gift guide.  There's still time to order/buy that perfect gift so have a read and choose your favourite for Sunday's special recipient.

Personalised gifts are always popular, and anything with Mum/Mummy on usually melts our hearts.  When wine is also involved you can be sure you're on to a winner!  My mum's going to love this personalised wine glass from, especially if it means no-one else gets their hands on her glass of pinot grigio.  Available with two lines of personalisation up to 25 characters, this lovely glass is sure to put a smile on her face every time she uses it.  Priced £9.99 and available with 24 express delivery.

Also available from Getting Personal is this cute glass heart decoration priced £9.99.  This hand-crafted glass token from Spaceform features a pastel pink heart motif surrounded by tiny hearts, with the words 'Love You Mum' etched across the central heart.  One way to make sure she knows every day that you are thinking of her.  Very cute.

Graham & Brown has a delightful range of decorative gifts to enhance any style of  home.  We have been sent this lovely hearts canvas which has a lovely composition of assorted hearts in shades of pink on a white background.  It would suit many styles of decor and would be the perfect gift for anyone who loves the heart motif.  Ours looks lovely on the bedroom wall, although Sophia fell in love with it immediately and has declared that she will have it for her future home!  The canvas retails at £25.00.

TomTom has a solution for all busy mums in their new range of GO sat navs.  With our ever more busy days every second counts and with its real-time traffic updates the GO can shave valuable minutes off those daily chores and long distance drives alike.  Getting there faster means less fractious children and more time to do the things that matter, not sitting behind a steering wheel!

The new GO range offers subscription-free TomTom Traffic for an exceptionally low purchase price.  The entry-level GO 40 has a 4.3" screen, maps of 23 Western European countries, offers live traffic updates and dynamic re-routing, and costs just £139.99.  Connected to a Smartphone it uses your existing smartphone data plan to access TomTom Traffic and Speed Cameras by connecting to your smartphone via Bluetooth, thereby keeping the purchase price low.

New features include:

- Improved Voice Control. Say “Hello TomTom”, wait for the device to say “I’m Listening” and beep, then plan your journey without having to touch the device.

- TomTom Traffic now warns you about upcoming slow moving traffic due to heavy rain or snow, and the actual weather conditions are taken into account when calculating the fastest route

- Alternative Route Planning. TomTom will select the fastest route by default, but you can request another two alternative routes if, for example, you want to go a particular way.

- TomTom GO is the only navigation device with a ‘Jam Ahead’ warning for traffic incidents, which tells you exactly when you’ll hit the jam and warn you in case you’re moving at a faster speed than the traffic ahead.

- New TomTom GO 3D maps are designed not just for visual appeal, but to assist orientation in cities
and enhance the driving experience.  It makes complex urban environments more familiar and understandable, and makes the smaller, sometimes hidden side streets easier to find.

We've only used our TomTom a few times, but found it invaluable the other day when we were about to hit a jam on the M27 and found an easy, quick and traffic-free detour.  Definitely a great gift for mums that will help shave some more precious minutes off the boring stuff to save time for the stuff that matters - a long bath, lots of cuddles, and having fun!

Creighton's have some fantastic beauty products including their Argan Body and Keratin Pro Haircare ranges, all available from Poundland at just £1 each.  Argan Body is infused with miraculous Moroccan Argan Oil which is rich in natural anti-oxidants, and designed to moisturise and nourish skin.  We love the handwash and shower gel, great smell and very effective products.  The Keratin Pro 2 Minute Miracle conditioner is great for all hair types and helps repair damaged and stressed hair cells.  Hair strength is rebuilt and elasticity restored, helping to reduce frizz and tame flyaways, leaving hair smoother and more manageable.  Just leave on for two minutes and rinse out for silky smooth hair.

Mustela is a French skincare range containing natural ingredients which is perfect for mums and mothers-to-be.  The Instant Comfort Legs is perfect for tired, achy legs and has a creamy, smooth texture which immediately gives a wonderful fresh sensation that helps relieve those fatigued pregnancy or mummy legs.  The cream is non-sticky and quickly absorbed so it doesn't stain clothing and you can get dressed immediately after application. does not stain clothing, and is quickly absorbed by the skin, so you can get dressed right after application.  The Ultimate Hydration cream is rich and hydrating but non-greasy and easily absorbed.  It helps keep skin soft and supple and my thirsty winter skin has lapped it up!  This would be a great bump cream too.  See here for where to buy.

A lovely weekly treat is a Montagne Jeunesse face mask, perfect for ten minutes relaxing with a book in the bath.  Why not treat your mum to a selection of gorgeous face masks, such as the Brazilian Mud Fabric Mask which contains acai berry and avocado to nourish and replenish the skin; Creamy Coconut for instant hydration; or the Very Berry mask, bursting with antioxidants to leave skin clean and refreshed.  Montagne Jeunesse face masks are available from Superdrug and other leading retailers, and are all cruelty free and vegetarian.
