In just ten days time (on the 26th March if you need a little reminder!) it’ll be Mothering Sunday. Usually, I’d be popping out and buying my Mum a card and a little something, but this year will be different as both V and I will be celebrating becoming Mother’s for the first time! As we knew things would be crazily busy with Violet at this time, we got ahead of the game and planned a few presents for each other, obviously from Violet – before she even arrived! Isn’t she clever?! 🙂 I know we are a bit too organised and it takes away the surprise, but I’m so pleased I did as I haven’t braved the shops on my own with her yet, plus in my tired sleep deprived state, I’m so glad I made it easy for myself!
So with our ‘new Mum status’ we wanted to get gifts that would come in handy with a new baby as this time is all about being practical, we need all the help we can get! So, here are the gifts that Violet got us, maybe you might find some inspiration for a present for your Mum too!
As we are going to be spending a lot of time on the sofa feeding, napping and playing with Violet, we got these lovely super soft Pets Rock Cushions (£24.99 each). The designs are just hilarious and go fabulously with our union jack ‘thrones’ in the living room!
Next up, I found this gorgeous Personalised Heart Map (£49.00 with 10% off using code MUM10). We absolutely love the village where we live so this is a keepsake we can treasure forever, it’s also the first house Violet lived in so it’ll be a special place we’ll keep in our hearts, even if we move away one day. On the website you just input your postcode and they do the rest, so it’s really quick and easy to create.
As new Mum’s we’ve basically been living on coffee (thank goodness for the Nespresso Machine!) so we thought these matching ‘I really love my Mummy‘ mugs were cute gifts and will be well used too! We personalised each mug with our drink of choice (there is a smaller text on the back) so that all our visitors know what drinks to make us. 😉 Of course all mugs need coasters, so lastly these Marbletree Heart Coasters (£19.99 for two) were a lovely touch, they go so well in our nursery and will be used many a time for those early morning feeds, I’m sure!
So, those are the gifts we will be giving, hopefully we will do something lovely as a family too (or maybe just let each other sleep -that would be FAB!)
What will you be buying your Mum this year?

These are all lovely – clever little Violet! 😉
My Mum loves arranging flowers so it will be a bunch from Bloom & Wild for her, and possibly a magazine subscription.
I am just wondering if I get to celebrate Mother’s Day this year…I mean, at what point does motherhood officially start? I feel like a mother already though only 6 months into my pregnancy! Maybe I can persuade my husband this year is a dry run for my first official one next year! 🙂 x
I know, how clever was she, buying all these lovely things! 😉
Ooh Bloom and Wild are fab – I hope you were spoiled on Mothers Day, I think it counts if you are pregnant, you are technically still a mother! xx
Congratulations on becoming a mother! That is so exciting! I love that mug, I think it would be a fantastic gift idea
