All we want is happy and healthy children, right? Well, if there’s one day of the year when a mum can demand just a little bit more… Feet up fellow mums! Here are some Mother’s Day gift ideas -you totally deserve!
Coffee served in bed -yes please!
Flowers? Nope! Seasonal flowers should come on a regular basis throughout the year and will not be regarded as a special treat as such. Unless they are wildflowers handpicked by your child, something that will be highly unlikely considering we are in the UK and it’s February!
A bath! A relaxing but most importantly uninterrupted bath. No need for expensive therapeutic essential oils and handmade scented candles. Just a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on the door will do.
Gifts? Not necessary, but if you insist. An absolute no go includes house cleaning products, kitchen utensils, gym gear and anti ageing products. The following gift ideas would be more welcome…
Hay Stationary for our home office. We would love this! It can be organised, photographed, blogged, reorganised, photographed and blogged … to the envy of all our Pinterest friends!
We like positive thinking! Baum Und Pferdgarten Elda Sweat with ‘OUI’ will look great to any shorts, skirt or paired with our new bang-on-treand pair of ripped jeans for Summer. Available at Asos.

Edgy and cool Danish sunglasses for the urban mum who refuse to resign to ‘mumsy’.

Let them eat cake! And only lots of sugar, eggs and cream will do. If you don’t have any brilliant recipes up your sleeve, ask Trine Hahnemann for advice. No, store bought cake is not okay.

Champagne? “I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes, I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it if I am; Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.” Madame Bollinger. In other words, Champagne is always a good idea.
So when does it take place you said? Sunday 15th of March. Countdown to our very special day has begun…
