So Have You Got It Right This Mothers Day! Asks Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.

Forget flowers, expensive jewellery, fancy dinners even iPads.

And don't go anywhere near diet pills, cleaning products and plastic flowers.

What mothers really want this Mother's Day is a bit of peace and quiet from the children with a nice long lie-in.

And only after they've had eight hours of uninterrupted sleep this Sunday, mums would love nothing more than to spend some quality time with the family, according to a new poll.

Coming a close third on the list of top gifts for mothers is a day free of tantrums, followed by a ban on children's television (sorry, Peppa Pig) and then having someone else cook for them.

The survey, commissioned by online discount site netvo­uc­her­codes.­co.­uk, found mothers would prefer things most people take for granted on their special day rather than expensive gifts.

To feel well-rested came top of the poll, with a fifth of mothers saying they'd love a decent night's sleep and a long lie in, with dad looking after the children.

Second was quality time with the family with 18 per cent of the vote, and though many mothers said they always make this a priority, some added it can be hard when juggling work and home commitments.

At the lower end of the results in joint sixth place was a piece of their own child's artwork and the chance to drink a hot mug of tea or coffee before it went cold.

A clean house was chosen by five per cent, and a new techy gadget such as an an iPad coming in at ninth place with four per cent of the vote.

“That should be easy to sort” Says Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.
