With Mother's Day coming up at the end of the month (27th March), the pressure can feel overwhelming to spend, spend, spend; Especially when you look at what was spent last year - a cool £1.34 billion - with the average person spending £72 on presents. However, Mother's Day needn't (and shouldn't) cost the earth, especially if you're spending your hard-earned pocket money.
A recent survey asked Mums what they ideally wanted most for Mother's Day: 24% said a homemade gift, 17% something food-related, 19% want time alone, 24% chocolate and 19% would love it if someone else took care of the household tasks they are responsible for; and the great news is none of these are expensive and are all available on needi!
So check out our top pocket money picks below - they should tick the right box for your Mum/Step-Mum/Grandma or any other influential female figure in your life that you would like to say thank you to.

Spend some quality time together in the kitchen baking these 10 scrummy chocolate cookies. Then let Mum sit down and eat them while you do the washing up.

You can hire a cleaner instead!
