I do love a good gift guide, especially around the different celebrated holidays such as Mother’s Day, Easter, Christmas etc but I’m starting to tailor my gift guides more towards things that I would like for myself. It makes it more exciting and fun to write plus it gives the hubby plenty of ideas for what to purchase in case his mind has drawn a blank. No excuse for him now really. So here’s some of the lovely things that I wouldn’t mind receiving for Mother’s Day.
At the moment my life is all about family and what better way to say it than with this fab FMLY top from Selfish Mother. I really like a good tee and I really need a few new ones for my wardrobe. I’ve had quite a lot of my casual clothes for years now and it’s about time I did a refresh. FYI this tee can be purchased from John Lewis so you can always visit a store and try before you buy, very handy that.
I am currently in desperate need of somewhere to store and display my jewellery easily. At the moment it’s all hidden away in original boxes and although this keeps it all nice and clean it’s a pain in the butt when I’m trying to hunt down the earrings, necklace or ring I want to wear with a certain outfit. It would be so much easier if I had something which I could display my jewellery in but also keep it clean and safe so I didn’t lose it. This is why I think these stacking boxes from John Lewis are amazing. You can buy different styles of trays, all the same size, so you can then stack on top of one another and save so much space. Amazing! I definitely want some of these.
Because I love a good cuppa I also love a good mug to go along with it and there’s nothing better than your child showing their appreciation by purchasing you a totally awesome mug. Like this one from Filthy Sentiments. Need I say more!?
Since the family and I have travels on our mind again this year I fancy a little travel wallet of some sort to help me keep all of our papers, passports and tickets handy. I usually throw them all in my handbag but trying to pull along a Trunki, push a buggy, load the suitcases and grab blindly for travel documents isn’t always great. Think of how much easier it would be if I had this beautiful personalised leather travel wallet. Here’s hoping, hint hint.
The hubby and I are right into lovely scents at the moment and I’ve been on the look out for something relaxing to have in our bedroom. What more could I ask for then than this luxury scented spa relax candle from The White Company. I bet it smells amazing and I’m sure a friend recently said it actually does smell like a spa. Fab.
So that's what I'd really love for Mother's Day, but what about you? I'd love to know what you'd like.
