This year will be my 5th Mother’s Day since Nancy arrived! Each year I receive a ‘surprise’ gift which Nancy gets very excited to give me. I say ‘surprise’ because usually JC gets a little hint about what I would like. Last year’s was a cute charm for my Pandora bracelet!
I have been searching around for this years Mummy must have gifts. I’ve managed to find some good ones and want to share . . .
Emma Bridgewater Mummy mug
Emma Bridgewater mugs have been around for a while now so this is not a NEW gift idea. However, personally I still don’t have one 😦 and I’m sure I cannot be the only one. You can order in a range of colours and patterns, and have it as Mummy, Mum or personalised with whatever you would like. Mugs cost £12.95 with an additional £5 delivery. There is still time to order online and get before Sunday. Follow the below link:
Harls&Ted Winging Motherhood jumper
Nobody can teach you how to be a mother, no matter how many books you read or classes you attend. This jumper describes my being a mummy method . . . Winging! I absolutely love this jumper. Its a great casual wear that I can see myself wearing on cosy weekends! It retails at £24.99 and can be found at:
Sanctuary Spa Gift Set, exclusively at Boots
I first saw this gift set on This Morning earlier this week. I am a fool for a pampering gift set, especially one that comes in a fancy box. I also like that all the goodies are travel sized which means that as a working mummy that’s travels regularly, I can take the pampering with me! So in the box you get:
- Sanctuary Signature Candle 200g
- Sanctuary Signature Diffuser 160ml
- Gentle Polish Body Scrub 50ml
- Luxury Bath Float 75ml
- Cleansing Burst Body Wash 75ml
- Velvety Hand Cream 30ml
- White Lily & Damask Rose Body Wash 75ml
- White Lily & Damask Rose Body Lotion 75ml
This gift set is only £22 which is a bargain for such a selection and can be found following the below link:
Bloom and Wild flowers
Bloom and Wild are a flower service that is hand created, packaged securely and delivered through your door as either a one of purchase OR you can subscribe to regular deliveries.
This years Mothers day creations are named the Zara (£23), the Elsie (£28) and the Adele (£30). There are other options if you think your Mummy would like something different.

Candle from Aldi
Now these candles have been ALL over social media this week. Reason being . . . . its a candle . . . very similar to those of Jo Malone which cost £44 . . . but these ones are from Aldi and only cost £4!!!!! I am yet to get my hands on one of these. Maybe I will get one Sunday 😉
Aldi have created 3 candle scents; Pomegranate Noir, Freesia, Pear & Lime, as well as Basil & Mandarin. They are hard to find, but so worth it according to the reviews I have read!
Progrigio from Asda
If women around the world continue to consume Prosecco as they currently are, it is soon to be extinct. So, Asda have decided to try something new and that is Progrigio . . . a mix of Prosecco and Pinot Grigio. Personally I love it! Its sparkly which looks great in a flute glass, and its got that dry wine kick which always makes me think of quality!
Asda are also selling this at a bargain £5 a bottle OR a special offer of 6 bottles for £25 (you can treat Mummy, Nanny & Great-Nanny with that)!
Cushion by Tillyanna
I don’t care what JC says, you cannot have too many cushions. And what better than a cushion that means something. I found the above creation on notonthehighstreet.com. A lovely monochrome theme cushion which can be personalised with the families names.
I find it so cute . . . definitely too cute for anyone to actually use as a cushion!
If you fancy a personalised cushion, any of the other personalised home wares that are on offer, please check out:
