Mother’s Day and Spring are on the way

Mother’s Day

My girls were a little disappointed today. Ant told them that I want garden centre vouchers for Mother’s Day this year and they like to buy me lots of little presents. Things like chocolate, a new mug, teddies that say ‘World’s Best Mum’, you get the gist.

As you may know, this is the year of the garden. We have a mammoth task ahead of us. It’s not going to be cheap to get the garden the way we want it so I don’t want to be spending money unnecessarily. I’d much rather they buy me a tenners worth of alpine plants!

We did get presents for my mum, Ant’s mum and Aiden’s step mum from HomeSense. We’re not usually this organised! We tend to leave everything to the day before and go to Asda trying to find some nice flowers or something.


This shell box is so pretty

I love owls. I’d never be able to light this candle, though, it’s just too nice!

Scented candles are always a great choice for me. I just love having a gorgeously smelly candle burning away.

Chocolates. Need I say anything else?!

Bayliss and Harding would also be a good choice. I usually get some for Christmas and unlike lots of people who complain when they get toiletries for a gift, I don’t because I like them 🙂

Any of these would be the best choice for me right now, though. Garden tools, plants or ornaments are on my list because I will have a nice garden this year!

If all else fails and you don’t have a clue what to get your mum, there’s always the gift card option 🙂
