First Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day always seems to creep up swiftly yet silently after the rush of Valentine's Day and this year is no exception with it being on the 11th March. Seeing as this is my First Mother's Day as an actual mother since I was pregnant for it last year, I'm quite excited to spend the day with my little one and do some cute bonding activities that I found on Pinterest. Cassius is only going to be 8 months old when the day comes around so of course I'm not expecting anything but his giggles and affection. 

With that being said though, I wanted to do a gift guide aimed at all you daddy's out there - even if your baby is too young to know about Mother's Day like mine is, it's always a nice sentiment to receive something, especially for your first year, no matter how little or big. 

Here are a few little bits and bobs I've come across online and love the look of. 

This was one of the first things to catch my eye on Not On The High Street as it's gorgeous and sentimental and the fact that you can personalise it is lovely. Add a nice little mummy message and some of your favourite photos of your little one and voila, perfect for storing anything you want in it.

I love my jewellery like most women out there and these are so darling, I'm definitely going to be hinting to Dane to get me one. Silver plated chains with Swarovski crystal birthstone charms, you can get these in either solid sterling silver or 14k rose gold plated sterling silver and personalise with your little one's initial and birthstone. Such an adorable accessory to any outfit.

For all those make up loving mumma's out there, this fun and cute slogan bag is a necessity for keeping your must have daily products in. The perfect size to keep in your handbag so you can touch up your make up on the go, this will definitely be a winner on the big day.

Mama Bear Mug / £9.67
Etsy is probably the best place to find cute gifts for any occasion and when I saw this Mama Bear mug, I knew I had to include it in my gift guide. I'm a sucker for anything that says Mama or Mum on it, as well as being an avid tea drinker & the spring flowers and Est. 2017 is such a lovely touch that I couldn't resist. You can choose what size mug you want and personalise the year to show how proud you are to be a Mama Bear.

Another adorable Etsy find, this is such a sweet little oak veneered wooden plaque that you can personalise and display in your home. The carving of the mother and baby is beautiful and it's classic and elegant, a great gift for any mother, no matter what age.

And lastly I really love the look of this frame, especially the sparkly background and flowers, it's so pretty and girly. It's handmade and you can choose what type of flowers you wish to have at the bottom on the crystals and I bet it would look gorgeous displayed at home. It's a lovely little reminder for mum's not to give up when times get hard.

There are a million and one other gift ideas floating around the blogger verse, from beauty to skincare to chocolate and wine, but I wanted to specifically aim mine at more personal little trinkets that I know I'd love myself. With a budget of £30, I think these are all more than reasonably priced and would be a great gift for any first time or even not first time mums out there. So get on it daddys, you've not got long left to treat your baby mumma!
