Beverley Sutphin from Serial Mom
- the picture perfect mum
For mums who hate mess
Wonderfully portrayed by Kathleen Turner, Beverley is a mild-mannered suburban housewife with a secret hobby. Watch out if you’re rude, annoying or ungrateful; Beverley is partial to a bit of murder and will run you over, stab you or beat you to death with her Sunday roast to prove her point. Fiercely protective of her family despite their flaws – her first victim is her son’s maths teacher after he criticises him – Beverley is the ultimate stay-at-home mum, keeping everything running smoothly via her slightly unconventional methods. Cold-blooded killing can be quite time consuming, but Beverley still finds the time to keep her house spotless. If your mum has to deal with a lot of pesky bloodstains, the Ideaworks 2-in-1 Sweeper Mop
makes it quick and easy to achieve a sparklingly clean floor so she can get back to dealing with those rude neighbours!
Morticia Adams – The alternative mum
For mums that are a little bit quirky
Is your mum a little bit off the wall? Known for her quirkiness and inability to conform? If your mum is a bit like Morticia Adams then she may be a little harder to buy for. Morticia is known for her killer curves and of course alternative parenting methods. She was devoted to Gomez and her flawless face of makeup. Morticia was known for her pasty white skin so why not treat your mum to some luxurious whitening cream
and age spot corrector? It leaves you with a clear and even skin tone and protects against harmful UV rays and free radicals. Morticia is also a sensual woman so if your mum sounds like this then an aroma diffuser
would be a fantastic idea for her to use her favourite essential oils.
Alicia Florrick from The Good Wife
- the working mum
For mums who like to work hard and play hard
Alicia is the ultimate professional woman; she goes from being seen as just the wife of her philandering State’s Attorney husband to establishing her own career as a highly successful lawyer who is both tough and compassionate. She makes no claim to ‘having it all’ and sometimes struggles to balance her work duties with keeping track of what her two teenage children are doing, but that just makes her all the more easy to root for. After a hard day of fighting for her clients and making sure her kids are on the right track, Alicia likes to relax with some music and a big glass of red wine. If you’ve got a high-flying mum who needs to destress, the Aroma Scent Hub Apollo
features in-built Bluetooth speakers so she can play all her favourite tunes while she enjoys the relaxing scents of essential oils. The only other thing she’ll need is a nice bottle of Merlot!
Edina from Ab Fab – The crazy mum
For the mum who never wants to get old
Edina is a colourful character and a little bit insane to say the least. Does this sound like your mum? There’s nothing wrong with the right kind of crazy and often the bonkers ones are the best. For those mums that are young at heart, trendy and hip there are a few fun things you can get them for mother’s day. Edina is also partial to being pampered so would love nothing more than to put her feet up in a lovely soothing foot warmer a
nd keep her youthful glow with a collagen lamp
– allow your mum to be forever young.
