because raising a large family isn’t for the faint-hearted

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2018

Mother’s Day is on the 11th March this year. A time to show our Mother’s how much we love and respect them. I mean, without them we wouldn’t be here!

My mum is my best friend as well as my mum and we’ve always been close. I was actually born on Mother’s Day and she always says I was the best present she ever got!

When Mother’s Day comes along I always love creating or buying her special gifts, ever since I was 13 and won a Mother’s Day competition in Woolworths (I miss that shop). I completely forgot I entered it until my mum got the call that she had won and she was totally blown away. She loved it so much that she still has the card, which is bigger than my 8-year-old.

One year I created a canvas poem with handprints from each of the children (or in the case of Reese who was a tiny baby at the time). This still hangs pride of place on her wall.

For this gift guide, I am sharing the Mother’s Day ideas that I have been lucky enough to receive to review for her. Whilst I was given these items for free to review and say what I thought about them, it didn’t impact my opinion. For more information check out my disclaimer.

Becky and I made her a Tagliatelle Carbonara using Seaweed Pasta from Seamore Foods which she enjoyed.

She also enjoyed a bouquet of flowers, teddy bear and chocolates from Prestige Flowers and the children all enjoyed surprising her with.
