What is Mother’s Day going to look like for you?

Kids celebrating their mum this Mother's Day


Perhaps it will start with breakfast in bed on a tray, maybe with a flower in a vase alongside the food offering. There’s the chance it may include a hand-made card with cute messaging. I’ve received a few of those cards over the years, invariably incorporating words such as “thank you mummy for making good food” because my four are all boys and food is a major in their world!

Mother’s Day for you may be a family-focused affair where you may be treated as Queen of the household. And most likely, there will be a surprise or two for you to unwrap. For those needing to go and make those purchases there’s some ideas here. I’ve already started dropping hints (is this a bad thing?) I’ve been waxing lyrical about the heart from The Importer for quite a few months now. Christmas and my birthday have come and gone and the bait has yet to be taken.

So, the hints have become less than subtle in the lead-up to Mother’s Day this year! I’ve suggested to son number three that all four could chip in together and what a heart-warming combined Mother’s Day present that would be. My suggestions for you are as varied as glass straws (very on-trend and environmentally wonderful), an Oh La La front door mat (there are different wording options), snuggly things for winter, smelly things, exercise related product, and a pricey number (well worth it for lovers of great coffee). As always, some of the items pictured are on special. Happy Mother’s Day.
