I've recently been lusting over some mama related products that I'd love to receive for Mother's Day (hint hint Aria/Mr) so I thought it would be nice to share my top gift ideas.
Maybe your looking for inspiration for your mama, your baby's mama, a mama friend in need of a treat or just some inspiration to hint about in the run up to Mother's Day on the 26th March.
First up, gifts under £30....
1. The (not) #Babyspam pin £6
Does your baby mama/mama friend apologise for posting pictures of their beautiful babe? I see so many parents still hashtagging their photos of their babies with #babyspam but lets stop it; we are proud of our creations and they shouldn't be put in the same category as annoying PPI emails and junk mail. This #notbabyspam pin by Mother Merch is perfect for Instagram loving mamas!
2. Mother Like No Other T-shirt £19.99
Totes love a statement slogan piece and this Mother Like No Other raglan t-shirt is perfect for the spring/summer paired with jeans and converse. As well as being super stylish part of every sale is donated to the Panda Foundation, a charity who provide support to women suffering from pre and postnatal depression.
3. Nobody Told Me by Hollie McNish £10.49
Whether you breastfeed, bottle fed, co-sleep, don't sleep, sling your baby or use a pram...all mothers out there will in some way relate to this book. I was given this book in the first few weeks of being a mother and have loved every page of it. It even inspired me to write my own little bit of poetry; check it out here. I've recommend this book to so many people I just couldn't leave it out of my gift guide. Hollie writes about her experience of adapting to motherhood, her difficulties of going back to work and many more of the worries all us mamas go through. Its witty, tear inducing, comforting and just simply amazing. Available from Waterstones.
4. Thanks I Love it Mothers Day Gift Box £25.50
Looking for a luxurious collection of items for a mama who loves a good pamper? Well, Thanks I Love It (Tili) have created this cute gift box especially for Mother's Day! It includes a bar of Doisy & Dam chocolate, a pomegranate and pear candle and bath bomb both by Yorkshire Soap. It also comes with a Lydia Meiying card and Tili will hand write your message inside so the box can be sent straight to your mama.. perfect for those who are short on time to organise a gift!
5.Oh Sew Bootiful Embroidery kit £16.50
Sometimes buying for a mama is tough if they have everything they want/need! So, why not go for something a bit different, like this Love Heart Oh Sew Bootiful embroidery kit from Etsy. Either order in advance and sew it yourself and wrap it up for them or give them the kit so they can spend some time working on a needle craft project. If I had more time on my hands I'd love to do something like this!
Next week's gift guide will be on gifts ranging from £30 to £50.
