  • Bicester in Oxfordshire (£91),
  • Nuneaton in Warwickshire (£88)

  • Cornwall (£62.44),
  • South Glamorgan (£60.35),
  • Warwickshire (£55.74),

CEO Rakesh Aggarwal said: "There was a huge variation on expenditure for Mother’s Day gifts across the Britain but Cornwall, and Falmouth in particular, were by far the most generous. But it’s the thought that counts on Mother’s Day, so any present given on the day will always be cherished."’s best selling Mother’s Day products so far for this year are:
