The Sleep Council slide-good-night-300x178 What Mums Really Want For Mother’s Day  Want to please your mum this Mother’s Day (Sunday 10)? Then forget flowers, expensive jewellery, fancy dinners even iPads. Yes, what mums really want is a nice long lie-in!

A poll today has revealed that ‘to feel well-rested’ comes top, with a fifth of mums saying they’d love a decent night’s sleep and a long lie in, with dad looking after the children. Sounds bliss to me (Husband, please take note!)

A good night’s sleep does wonders! Not only does it make you feel better – happier, and energised but you also look better too – think brighter eyes and skin. And what mum doesn’t want to wake up feeling and looking good?

But a lie-in is no good, if the bed isn’t comfy! Make sure your mum is sleeping on a bed that is supportive and comfortable. If the bed is more than seven years old; it sags; is lumpy or looks past its best, then your mum deserves a new one and while a bed might seem like an expensive Mother’s Day present, it certainly is something that she should be treated to at some point.

So happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there – I hope you get your wish of a good night’s sleep and a lovely lie-in… and maybe if you’re really lucky, breakfast in bed? Now there’s a thought……
