Mother's Day is this Sunday and if you haven't got something for your mum (or hinted to the kids what you'd like), according to a new study the best gift might be some time alone!

The study of around 1300 mums found that 67% of mums wanted at least 1 hour of alone time this Mother's Day.

Other things that proved popular with mums included breakfast in bed, a sleep in and a break from chores.

The CEO of Mumsnet (the website behind the study) said that "there’s quite a lot of pressure on mothers to be selfless, and it can be difficult for them to ask for what they want, especially if it’s for their early-rising children to go away and take their burnt toast with them."

"Of course, it’s possible that some mothers cook for relaxation on Mother’s Day – it’s even possible that some enjoy taking the bins out – but it wouldn’t hurt for the nation’s spouses (and children) to assume all domestic responsibilities, for this day at least."
