Mother's Day Gift Guide

This year will be my first year as a mother. And you all know what that means. I will be expecting the full works on Mother's Day. Granted, my daughter will only be 4 months old but that's really no excuse. But this year I also really want to do something special for my mum. Being pregnant, having a very long labour, and having many sleepless nights with a newborn has shown me how much my mum did for me. And it has made me feel so grateful to her. The fact that she never once complained and was so selfless in looking after me makes me feel so proud to call her my mother. And, in all honesty, I will be happy if I am half as good a mum as she has been to me and my siblings. 

Having said all that, I do struggle to convey these sentiments in a gift. In all honesty, it's not really possible but at least you can make your mum feel extra special for one day. My favourite kinda gifts to buy are ones from the heart. Ones that bring up old memories or relate to private jokes - they show how much you listen to them. And chocolate, mums love chocolate. Ooh, or a coffee machine. Mums need coffee. Especially if you have younger siblings that your mum is still running around after. Or something a bit more special. Something like this Clive Christian perfume is a luxury Mother's Day gift that anyone would be delighted to receive. I can speak from experience that just spritzing on a little perfume makes me feel a lot more put together and fabulous than I otherwise would. 

So, these are my top picks of cute things you can find online to give as gifts. 

The best thing about buying gifts online is that you can buy from independent businesses. I feel like this is super important as it means so much to a small business if you support them. And I like to think that my money that is going to them in return for a gift will, in turn, be used for a gift for their mums. I mean, it's a nice thought that your money is going to an actual person rather than a faceless corporation. So, if that's what you're looking for, have a click on the links for 3, 4, 6, 8, and 9. They are all products from small businesses run by very lovely ladies. 

To all my readers who are mothers, I wish you the most amazing day. You are actually heroes and are doing an excellent job. And people celebrating Mother's Day with their mums, I hope she likes her gift and she feels as special as you want her to feel. Have a great day!
