When you become a mum, your life changes forever. Rare are those moments when you focus on yourself first – instead your life revolves around your family, and all the joys and challenges that new life brings. It's a beautiful, exhausting, amazing, difficult change. For all they give, mothers should be celebrated. Mums deserve something special that's just for them, and Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to make sure that happens.
While breakfast in bed and a chance to put your feet up is very special – how about one of these beautiful gifts as the icing on the cake this Mother's Day?
With everything required to harness that relaxing moment when it appears, this is a great gift for mum at the great price of $24.95! The gift pack contains a mini dreamy coconut soy candle, a citrus and lavender hand & body lotion, and a mini relaxing bath salts in a lovely calico bag. Check out Bubbalooz

These Jill Main Pohutakawa Merino Mitts from Not Socks Gifts
will be much used by mum on those chillier days. Don't you love the print? Made in New Zealand, they come in olive, orange or blue.
Fragrances can be full of chemicals and nasties – but it's so nice to feel special when you're doing the usual mum tasks and a little signature fragrance makes any woman feel a little more sophistiqué. I love the fragrance range from all-natural kiwi company Do No Harm
, including these Nellie Tier Scents. Pink Grapefruit and Rose can be my signature scent any day of the week, thanks very much.
The Giftloft Lady of the House Hamper
is a veritable treasure of products to make mum feel loved. You can customise this gift by choosing the candle, chocolates and lollies to be included. Mmmm candles, chocolates and lollies....
Giftloft also have a section dedicated to grandmas... I always try to remember my Nana (as well as my children's nana & grandma) on Mother's Day, and enclose a little card or picture from my kids too. This Mad Millie "Fromage" Cheese Making Starter Kit is from that section, though I know lots of mums who would love the chance to try out making their own cheeses too.
Sometimes, just for fun, I'll sift through my (too) many online pictures of my kids, remembering the stages they've been through and thinking about how far they've come. Nothing puts a smile on a mama's face like the perfect shot capturing their child doing something they love. Beautiful gifts can be made from photographs, and I think some of the most beautiful of all come from MILK Books
. For a gift of true elegance stitched together with love, check them out.
Harness the opportunity to celebrate your mum and other special ladies in your life this coming Mother's Day. Oh and drop a few hints so you don't miss out on your own little celebration!
