Mother’s Day is almost here again, it doesn’t seem like 5 minutes since last years. Mother’s day in our house often consists of the Hubby being at work and me spending the day with the children. Sometimes we will head to the local National Trust property for the children to burn off some steam and get some fresh air. If the Hubby is at home we will generally go for a nice walk with the dogs and he will (with my help) cook a lovely roast dinner.
As it’s Mother’s Day we always try to make it a bit more special, I love that both the children are still young enough to make lots of things at school and pre-school, cards, pictures and vast array of other wonderful items. I always keep the things the children make, my dresser is just as full of their creations as it is my ever growing collection of Emma Bridgewater pottery. Not only do I receive my little darlings wonderful creations, I also get cards and gifts. Some years it can just be flowers other years it can be host of delightful gifts.
There are so many lovely online shops now that it is difficult to find one that offers gorgeous items, at good prices with great customer service. I have placed orders with the lovely Lisa Angel a few times over the last couple of years, gifts for friends and personalised items for my little girl who loves the cutest things.
This Mother’s Day Lisa Angel have sent me a some gorgeous items to help make my Mothers Day extra special.
Mother’s Day with Lisa Angel
Lisa Angel’s web site is a place you can get lost in, just looking at all of the fabulous things they have to offer, it was really difficult to choose just a couple of items. In the end I chose these as my top picks for Mothers Day.
Peas in a pod
I have seen a few people with a pea in a pod necklace, often made within one metal and each pea representing people you love. It could be for best friends, your brothers and sisters or like me my little family of four peas. However, it could be you just love peas.
What really draw me to this rose gold ‘Peas in a Pod’ necklace was that each pea is a different colour, making it much clearer to me that it holds a representation for different people. You are able to order this necklace with varying amounts of peas, from two to four. It also is available in just silver if you would prefer that. My necklace cost £22 and came in a cute little box and mounted on a card.
I love a scarf, I have more than I could ever possibly need, however I just keep adding more to my already over flowing box. I do however wear them all, it’s not often that I don’t have a scarf with me, even through the summer months I will add scarf to a vest top and jeans combo.
I spotted this lovely ‘Starry Nights Watercolour Cloud’ scarf that costs £20. Your also able to personalise the scarf with up to 30 letters. I just loved the fresh spring colours, perfect for a Mother’s day gift. Time to hopefully pack away the big winter scarfs and get out the lighter weight ones.
I chose to have Mummy added to mine, it’s in gold scripted letters that is just enough to stand out but not so it is in your face obvious. The scarf is large, which for me is perfect, I really love large scarfs, I think they are much more versatile.
Family Memory box
For years people have had memory boxes of some kind, for children’s birth or just to keep special items in. However generally they are hidden away in the cupboard filled with cards like a few I have, I have an issue with throwing important cards, invitations, newspaper clippings, tickets and god knows what else that I think I must keep. Much to my Hubby’s disgust.
However I have loved the idea of having a memory box on display. Something you can just pop in the cinema tickets or the train tickets, or even the tickets to Lego land or a leaflet of a place we have visited. Anything that makes memories for our family however big or small. Maybe even at the end of the year empty it as a family to remember the adventures for the year.
While looking through I found this lovely personalised ‘Family Memory Frame’, it’s simple but just right for filling with our memories. It has a slot at the top in the frame where you are able to easily pop your bits through, then the back opens up to remove any things when its fill.
This memory frame is a wonderful gift for any Mummy for mother’s day.
What would your ideal Mother’s Day gift be? Whatever your doing for Mother’s Day, I hope you have a lovely day.
