Mothers Day Gift Guide

My second Mother's Day as a mummy is approaching on Sunday 6th March. Even though I'm not a person who demands gifts from my hubby or child I thought I'd share with you a few things that I'd love to be treated with or some ideas for the daddy's/partners out there (I hope you're taking note hubby).

Spa day

I've never been to a spa before but I'd love to go to one for a few hours of pampered bliss. I've seen plenty of people posting pictures of being pampered away as part of a birthday surprise or even birthday celebrations.

Treating the lady in your life to a lovely smelly candle is always a good idea. I love Yankee Candles, there's so many scents to choose from. The set of 6 votive sets are great, so that you have a selection of different scents to try.

I've never shopped in Victoria's Secret before but I do see some lovely VS PINK clothes on instagram. I had a look on their website and this top caught my eye, I love the colour, very spring shade.

I seem to live in my pj's when I'm at home. I love a good branded pair of pj's such as Disney or Mummy Pig from Peppa Pig. I always buy my pj's from ASDA, they always have a great selection.
I always love a personalised gift, they are unique and very thoughtful. I came across Bella & Bow and thought their products are amazing. I have a very similar necklace that Chris got me for my birthday last year but I love the engraved hand and footprints design.

If you follow me on social media you'll know that I have an addiction to ClaireaBella products. I have everything from bags to a pillow. This year Claire has designed another new Jute Bag for Mother's Day this year and it's lovely! I got one last year for Mother's Day. Toxic Fox have a great selection of Mother's Day gifts on their website.


CardNest is a greetings card subscription service . Members receive an assortment of three new card designs in the post each month, helping to build up a 'nest' of cards, ready to dip into whenever it's needed. I don't know about you, but I'm forever looking round the house for cards for a last minute birthday.
The CardNest team seek to uncover the most exciting artists and illustrators from across the world. They collaborate with both established and upcoming creatives to create a signature collection of cards that their members will love to receive and be proud to send.

Members receive a monthly pack of cards, filled with cards for birthdays, thank you's, congratulations and other designs 'just because'. Monthly membership is available worldwide. In the UK at £7.50/month and £10/month for international subscribers. Members in the UK can also customise their subscription by adding three first class stamps for added convenience, at the same price you pay at the Post Office. This would be such a great gift for anyone who likes stationary, the cards are absolutely beautiful and one of a kind. 

If all else fails then THE best gift you can give to mummy is time on her own, just an hour or two without the kids to do her own thing. Breakfast in bed also a great idea or even just offer (if you don't already) to sort the kids out yourself for a day.

Hope you've enjoyed my selection of gift ideas for Mother's Day this year. Wishing all the wonderful mummy's out there a fabulous day.
