Mother's Day Guide

Friday, February 27, 2015

With Mother's Day coming up on March 15th I thought I would share a few great ideas with you. If you are looking for something unique this year then look no further.

Funky Giraffe Bibs 

This is one for a new Mum. Funky Giraffe Bibs is my favourite brand of dribble bibs after finding them when Zach was a baby. They are great quality and keep babies clothes lovely and dry. These cute Mother's Day themed bibs would be a great addition to a baby/toddler's outfit on Mother's Day. You can find these ones and a few other 'Mum' themed bibs at

This cute alphabet shaped notebook is the perfect gift for stationery loving Mum's. Make it personal by getting her first name initial or even an 'M' as a cute and quirky gift. The spine of the book is designed to look like an old fashioned vintage book and each page has a slightly off-white tint to help the vintage feel. The pages are a lovely thick quality paper. They would be perfect for scribbling notes or to simply use for decoration. Alphabooks are currently available for £12.99 at

Nella Milano Nail Lacqeur

Looking for something nice for Mum to pamper herself with? Nella Milano have launched a luxurious range of nail polishes in a range of fabulous colours. I have tried these out myself and was very impressed with the long lasting colour, which took much longer to chip than most other nail polishes (always important for busy mums who want nice nails!). They have colours to suit everyone. They are priced at £8.95 which is fair for a good quality nail polish and they are available from 

Venus Sugarberry Razor

Not your usual choice for a Mother's Day gift. The Venus Sugarberry razor, with it's five blades and Olay moisturising bars locking in that moisture, it gives a real smooth luxurious feeling. It may be something she wouldn't think to buy herself but would enjoy using it. Great for women who enjoy pampering and grooming themselves. I have personally tried it and after many uses would definitely recommend it. The Venus Sugarberry has a RRP of £10.99 and is available at all major UK retail outlets.

House Of Fraser

One of the best department stores in the country, I think House of Fraser has a false reputation of being an expensive store, when in fact as well as their more premium brands they stock a large range of lesser known and more affordable brands. Why not treat your Mum to a nice jacket or coat this Mother's Day? This Wallis Black Stripe Jacquard jacket above is perfect for Spring. It would look great on women any age or size. I have worn it as both casual and occasion wear and love it. At just £20 in their most recent sale it shows you just what you can get for your money! If you are not sure on what style she would like you could always take her on a shopping trip or buy her a gift voucher to treat herself. You can see the full range of Jackets and Coats at

Rokit Nail

Another great nail product here. This one is for more professional looking nails. Rokit Gel Polish Professional kit promises a rok-hard, high shine and salon quality finish from the comfort of your own home. With an easy one step application this kit offers women salon quality nails that last up to 14 days in next to no time. The kit comes with a high performance LED lamp that promotes a super fast curing time as well as a built in treatment timer. The Rokit kit would make a great gift this Mother's Day especially for all those lovely mums that sacrifice their free time for their family, it is amazing how something as little as having nice nails can boost a woman's confidence.

The Rokit Gel Polish Professional Kit is available from and is currently priced at just £63! (RRP £99.99). 

Baker Ross

For Mum's of young children, it is always nice to receive cute home made gifts for any occasion. Just the proud faces when the children hand them over can be the best gift. Baker Ross specialise in arts and crafts at great prices. They have a huge selection of products for all occasions. You can see above, some of the Mother's Day crafts my kids have been trying out. At just aged 4 and 2 they have really enjoyed these crafts and needed only minimal supervision to do these crafts. The keyrings were the more difficult but I think they did so well. You can see the full range of Mother's Day crafts at

Tatty Teddy

This 'Wonderful Mum Mug and Tatty Teddy' is a lovely gift for Mum. Either hand it over as it is or as an extra special treat you can use it to take her a nice cup of tea in bed with the gorgeous teddy on the side. The teddy would make a great keepsake for Mum and the mug will make her think of you (or your kids if you are a dad looking for ideas) every time she gets a moment to have a nice hot drink. 

The Wonderful Mum Mug and Tatty Teddy gift is available to buy at Clintons and has a RRP of £14.

We received samples of some of products featured so that I could try before recommending. All opinions are completely my own.
