A Mothers Day Wish List

Mothers day is a time to treat the women in our lives, to celebrate motherhood and appreciate the influence of mothers in our society. There is no denying that being a mama is incredible. It is the most tiring and difficult yet the most satisfying role I have ever played. I wouldn't change a minute for the world.  

This year, Mothers Day falls on March 26th, a date that is rapidly approaching. If you are feeling a little bit stuck for gift inspiration this year, I have gathered together a few items that I have had my eye on recently for this blog post today. A wish list of sorts! 

First up, we have the Selfish Mother MAMA supersoft sweatshirt (link). Easy to wear and comfortable clothing is a must as a busy mama and this sweatshirt fits the bill perfectly! Perfect for trips to the park or wearing around the house. This top doesn't just look amazing either, £10 from the sale of this design goes straight to MOTHERS 2 MOTHERS which you can find more about by clicking here.

Is your mama a super hero? I am such a fan of these Supergirl and Wonder Woman Itty Bittys from Hallmark (link). The perfect way to let the mama in your life know that she has super powers! Pair them with a matching card and you have an instant gift. So cute! 

If you don't like the hassle of making cards yourself then Hallmark (link) also have an amazing range of cards this year. I love the 'Queen Mum' card which transforms into an adjustable crown, I think this is such a cute idea and will make a fantastic prop for some fun mothers day photos! 

Next we have the Charlotte Tilbury 'Natural Beauty' Instant Look in a Palette (link). I think this is pretty much the perfect palette. Make up in 5 minutes? I'm sold! I absolutely need this beauty kit in my life! It's so pretty and feminine, perfect for every day use. 
With my regular lack of sleep, I rarely leave the house without makeup but this beauty would help me feel more human in just a few minutes. It's perfect for travel too!

There are no words for this "I dream of sleep" hooded top from Mother Like No Other (link). It is perfect! My eternal struggle for sleep is something we laugh about often, as a mama I am always tired. I am sure every mother can relate to this! A portion of money from every sale goes to Pandas Foundation UK who provide incredible post natal depression support. 

If you're looking for a gift that isn't 'stuff'' then why not let mama have the afternoon off and gift her a voucher for afternoon tea somewhere. Whether it's at her favourite place to eat or in a country hotel, there are so many places that offer them nowadays. I always find that afternoon tea feels like such a treat! I won't provide any links but if you're stuck for ideas then google will be able to help you with ideas for the best afternoon teas in your area. 

Lastly, if you're a mama like me then you probably spend most of your time outdoors. Whether it's the endless school or nursery runs, after school classes, trips to the park, walking the dog or trips to the shops. I literally feel like I am always outdoors doing *something* and so bearing our good old British weather in mind, a good jacket is essential. I have long been a fan of the Seasalt Seafolly jacket (link) ever since they first released them a few years ago. It is the perfect jacket in my mind. Lightweight yet warm, waterproof yet breathable. They last for years and are effortlessly stylish. The perfect treat for a mum who is always on the go!

How will you be spending Mothers Day this year? Let me know in a comment below!
