Mothers day is nearly here

Items featured in this post were sent to me for inclusion in this Mothers Day guide but I handpicked what I would include.

Mothers Day is on the horizon again and finding the right gift can be tricky, after all, Mum’s are all very different. I have never enjoyed the commercialisation of Mothers Day, tacky gifts saying best mum don’t really show that you know your mum or really appreciate her. They were fine when we were kids given a small amount of money to buy a gift but as I get older (and as my kids get older) I look at them as a huge waste of money. A thoughtful gift that suits the recipient is much better and I can’t tell you what they would like to receive as they are all different. Anyway, this post is about all the things I would love to receive for Mothers Day (and won’t because I already have them but you know what I mean).

Something sweet

Cocoba have a fantastic range of chocolates for you to choose from ranging from hot chocolate hearts, flavoured chocolate bar and truffle tins. All of these make great looking (and tasting) gifts that anyone would be happy to receive.

A special treat

We all deserve to be treated to something special once in a while and buyagift always have some brilliant experiences to choose from. I rarely take time for myself so a spa day and treatment is a really special treat and one I will always appreciate/

A fancy tipple

I don’t need to add any new bottles to my gin cupboard but I couldn’t resist these gorgeous glasses from Vonhaus. They also work well as wine or champagne glasses and look fabulous on a drinks trolley.

Some me time

Its not often I take a bath so when I do it is a real luxury. After the Rain bath salts from Arran Sense of Scotland are a fantastic blend of sea salt and epsom salts that make your skin feel amazing whilst relaxing the body and mind with its fabulous scent of lime, rose and sandalwood.

A good nights sleep

Nothing feels better than climbing into a bed with new bedding. This luxury percale king size bedding with 200 thread count from Belledorm feels amazing. It has hand holes to make changing bedding easier and is available in a range of sizes and colours.

Something useful

I may be weird but I love having my own tools and I couldn’t resist this cordless screwdriver and bit set from Vonhaus. With 50 pieces in total and a hand carry case this cordless screwdriver is quickly becoming my favourite tool in my toolbox. With a 1300Ah Li-ion battery this will run for up to 3 hours without needing a charge.

So there you go, all of the gifts that make me happy as a mum. I would also accept a foreign holiday, a day without any arguing or a day without someone making some demand of me. What would you like to receive?
