If your mum loves a bit of bubbly, here are the best deals we've found for champagne and prosecco.

Aldi logo£10.99 Veuve Monsigny Champagne BrutCheapest champagne in stores and online at Aldi

Ongoing

Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut is currently £10.99 a bottle (previously £9.99) in store and online at Aldi. If you're shopping online you'll need to buy a case of six bottles, so if you just want one, you'd be better off visiting a store (find your nearest).

We've seen this bottle go down to £9.99 before, we'll update you here if it goes back down.

Please be Drinkaware.

Free Mother's Day gift cheques

Thoughtfulness melts the heart far more than a pricey gift. Our free Mother's Day gift cheques let you create unique vouchers for your mum. You could offer to do the washing up for a week, cook her dinner, bake a cake, or even take her out for the day.

Gifts

Don't feel pressured to buy pricey presents for your mum, but if you're feeling flush (in the MoneySaving sense), then a small gift could be a nice surprise. And buying something at a discount will please your mum more than seeing you waste your hard-earned cash.

Lidl logo£3.99 Suddenly Madame Glamour perfumeTop Chanel smell-alike. 50ml bottle, at Lidl

Ongoing

If you're looking for a Chanel smell-alike, Suddenly Madame Glamour perfume is £3.99 for a 50ml bottle in Lidl stores nationwide (find your nearest). 

Forumites swear it smells just like Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, which is normally £61ish for 50ml. We've also done some in-house testing at MSE Towers, and it scored highly against the more expensive brand. 

Obviously we can't guarantee you'll scents the similarity, but it's worth a nosey.

Superdrug logo£6 for two Superdrug hot cloth cleansers*Liz Earle-alike. Cruelty-free 150ml tube plus muslin cloth

8 days left

Superdrug £6 Liz Earle-alike hot cloth cleanserIf you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the popular Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser, you can get a cheaper version from Superdrug* - it's normally £5.99 for a 150ml tube and muslin cloth but it's currently 2for1 on offer until Tue 30 May, so now could be a good time to give it a try.

MSE Forumites swear it's just like the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser, which is normally £16ish for 100ml plus the muslin cloth. It would be £47ish for the 300ml you'd get with two tubes of the 150ml Superdrug version, which means you could save £41ish by downshifting.

Obviously we can't guarantee you'll be able to face a change from the pricier brand, but it's worth keeping your eyes peeled for offers like this if you'd like to try it.
