I always feel a little strange writing up this blog post every year. My husband is so good at buying me gifts (usually encouraged by our girls!) but then I remember that sometimes even the best of us need a little help and pointer in the right direction. Here are a few of my top gifts for her birthday this year.
“Happiness is a hot drink on a cold day.”
Sometimes a hot drink is all you need to warm up, wake up and cheer up.
Born in colder months like me? The lady in your life is likely to love a hot drink for her birthday! This doesn't have to be anything special. You could purchase a gift voucher for her favourite coffee shop, take her out on a coffee date or even put together a hamper of drinks and snacks. For mums like me though, a great gift is time. Time to enjoy the hot drink without a million things needing doing or a child interrupting.
"You can't buy happiness, but you can buy books and that's kind of the same thing."
Quick reads are the perfect gift for mums and women on the go
"If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you do good."

Treat her to some pretty new clothes she'll love
Remember my review of Disney's amazing adult clothing range? I can't think of any better gifts than clothing like this! Not only is it useful, but for a woman like me who is Disney obsessed; it's the perfect birthday gift! If the lady in your life isn't a massive fan of Disney like me, why not look at other things she does love. Whether it's a pretty dress, bold colours, floral patterns and more there are plenty of options when it comes to picking out clothes for her birthday.
A gift for her in the form of a pamper session at home
"Sometimes you have to take a break from the grind, clear your mind, and enjoy some "me" time."
A relaxing break is ideal for anyone, especially mums!
Did you see my recent reviews of my spa day with my best friend or romantic night away with John? I may have reviewed them as ideal gifts for Mother's Day but that doesn't stop them being perfect birthday gifts for her too! Everyone needs a break, whether it's from the daily grind of work; or from 24/7 calls of “muuuummmmy” while raising children at home.
A day out with the kids
As much as most mums would love a break for their birthday, sometimes it's just as good to spend some quality time with your children! I feel this especially the case for me, with Squidgy in school Monday to Friday. I miss her, and love any opportunity to get out and enjoy some quality time with her and Pickle.
It may be short and sweet, but I hope that you have a few great ideas now for gifts for her. Whenever you're celebrating your mum, sister or partner's birthday this year; with these gift ideas you're sure to find something they'll love.
