Out of all the ‘commercial’ days in the busy calendar I feel that on Mother’s day you really should make an effort. That effort really doesn’t have to be shown in a financial way, just recognising that Mama’s do so much for us all. The support that we know is always there, the unwavering faith in us, the constant juggle to make sure everyone is happy, healthy and cared for. I won’t go into the pressures that we are all constantly under (both our own and the expectations to have it all) because I could write pages and pages. But a small acknowledgement of our constant strive to make a success of, and balance everything, wouldn’t go amiss.
So here are a few ideas of how you can show your wonderful Mama the love 💗
This fab Sabrina and Scarlett Mama Breton stripe t-shirt comes in a huge variety of slogan colour options (the gold is my favourite) and is only £15.99!
Ok, so not a traditional Mother’s day present but they are so fricking awesome and I love them SO MUCH! Plus Poppy just said “I reaaalllllly like those” 😄
This Aurora London Gigi bag is perfect for the ‘I don’t want to take a nappy bag but I still need to carry a pack of wipes’ days and also so perfect for evening looks too. This Dove Grey colour is my favourite and obviously I’m all about the personalisation option too 😜 A dead ringer for the Gucci Disco bag but but with way more colour options and at £120 a fraction of the cost.
Those tiny toes and little finger prints, is there anything more special than having them immortalised in a precious metal? Philippa Herbert specialise in casting beautiful baby hands and feet in bronze, silver, glass and gold but their fingerprint pendants are my absolute favourite creations that I have been lusting after since I became a mother almost four years ago. Especially this diamond jumpring version 😍 Available in 9ct & 18ct yellow, white and rose gold.
Cashmere is one of those things that can seem too extravagant to buy for yourself and is one of the loveliest thing to receive. These White Company cashmere bed socks are such a luxurious treat and come in three colour ways and are £36.
In continuation from above, this Wyse London Maggie cashmere jumper really holds my heart 💗 Can you imagine how amazing it would be to receive this as a present? That colour combination is just perfection. It reminds me a lot of my Clements Ribeiro heart cashmere jumper which I adore and wear with everything. This jumper is £189.
Fraser & Parsley are always one of the first places I think of for gifts. I wanted to include this Breton stripe phone case as it will last and last and is such a pretty colour and at £35 including personalisation it’s a great price. They also have the Breton stripe in loads of other divine colours (I love the muted blue colour too) and lots of other designs too.
Merci Maman really know how to do personal presents and this gemstone necklace is just so pretty. You can have anything written on the metal disc from children’s names in a stack to a personal message to a great Mother. Available with lots of gemstone options for £99.
Meringue Girls make the most amazing meringues and have now branched out to amaretti biscuits in the most divine shades. A box of 20 of their Mother’s day amaretti delights costs £20 and is sure to make any Mama smile.
The Alex Edit has a great collection of curated gifts but the jewellery really hits the spot. I got my beloved little gold huggie hoops from here and I still can’t believe what great value they were. The earrings that I’m coveting for Mother’s day are these super versatile little huggie pearl drop earrings. They come in solid silver or silver with gold plate and are £32.
A little luxury for a bargain price. These Space Masks warm your eye area to soothe and relax tired eyes and help you drift off in to the best sleep. They’re single use and once you’ve tried them one just won’t be enough! Honestly, they’re amazing. Even Oliver loved them! So this box of 5 x Space Masks is just perfect. (He will kill me for including this pic but how else am I supposed to illustrate them in use?? 😜)
I discovered Emily through Instagram; her talent and beautiful interpretation of nature never ceases to amaze me. All of her creations are hand drawn in pencil. You can choose from framed originals from £195 or a limited edition print, like this adorable little fox cub, from £40. She also takes commissions.
You can’t go wrong with an Emma Bridgewater heart print Mummy mug 💗 for £19.95. They also have lots of other prints too. I wanted one so much when I first had children but my husband is totally deaf when it comes to dropped hints…so I bought one myself 😝.
I’ve so many amazing things about this brand but haven’t tried it yet but this little Energy Burst Kit looks like the perfect present for tired Mama’s. This kit includes On the go mist, Hand balm and Pulse point and is £20 however if you sign up to the newsletter you get 15% off your first order! They also have lots of other kits from De-stress to Make you happy.
The best things in life are free 💗
If buying gifts doesn’t sit well then you can’t go wrong with starting the day with a cup of tea and breakfast in bed followed by un-promted emptying of the dishwasher finished off with cooking of lunch served on a clear and beautifully laid table 👌🏼
Love F 💕 xx
