Mother's Day seems to have crept up on me this year, and I have legit not thought about it at all! Here are a few of my favourite gift ideas, however... So take a hint John (because I'm not sure he's realised it's so close either!)
The perfect locket
Hand sewn keepsake
My gorgeous friend Jemma runs a small business called, It's Sew Jemma... and I have a number of her b-e-a-utiful makes around my home. She has taught herself to sew a variety of different items from scratch, and more recently ventured into the wonderful world of personalised gifts. When it comes to Mother's Day you can't do better than her simply stunning personalised hoops. As soon as I saw them I knew they had to be included here!
Photos in a Frame
No one loves a bargain better than me... so when we made a trip to Poundland recently and found this amazing Poundland Peg Frame for, that's right, ONE POUND, I had to get it. Well, I had to convince John to buy it for me anyway. It is exactly the right size to peg some beautiful pictures of my family that I have printed on my Sprocket, and sits pride of place in my living room. You totally know that come Christmas I will swap the pegs and photos out for Christmas themed ones too!
Something for "Mum"
Something they NEED
The perfect accessory (for their phone, camera etc.)
Something they WANT
A lie in
I cannot remember the last time I had the opportunity to sleep in past 8am; or had more than four hours sleep in a row. Or a night for that matter. If there is one thing that I would love this Mother's Day it would be for John to get up with the girls and do all the things I would usually do... Get breakfast sorted, make the coffee, do the chores, get some washing done; but most importantly keep everyone out of my hair while I have a lazy morning. It's so not going to happen but I can dream, right? Perhaps instead I should ask for breakfast in bed?
Time to themselves
Some of the best gifts that John has given me include my children, my jewellery and some other lovely items for me and our home. To be honest though my favourites have to be the times he keeps everyone occupied while I have a child free bath; complete with bubbles, candles and music. If I'm lucky I even have time to read more than half a sentence in my current book and use some new bath bombs or toiletries that he has bought me. I barely get a break or any time to myself these days, I am just so busy all the time. That makes moments like these so much more special, because I get to unwind, even if it is for only an hour or so.
