As you all know, I am a big advocate for Mother's Day, I love the fact that we have this one special day that we can make an extra fuss about our mums. To remember everything they have done over the years and for me, everything that my mum does now for me and my children.
So, for this one day, I try to spoil my mum, find things that I know she likes and make a fuss. Asda do a huge range of gift ides for mum from scrummy chocolates, to handmade cards and I was delighted to receive some of their range from them.
The teacup with truffles is a very quirky idea. Having a nice cup of coffee and a couple of choccies is my mums idea of heaven, and getting to drink from some a beautiful cup makes it even more worth while. My mum collects cups though, so I'm guessing this will be going in her collection rather than bunged into a cupboard.
My mum has a bad memory and so is always keeping notes around the house. So when I saw this chalkboard, I knew she would love it. Perfect for the kitchen, to sit on a shelf and be there, ready for when she needs to write something down. A measurement for a her baking perhaps or a reminder to buy more eggs, or even just to look pretty in the corner. It comes with a stick of chalk so that you are ready to write!
I know a lot of people who say that cards are a waste but I don't agree, in fact, I think they are the best bit. Getting to search for a card that your mum will love, and writing inside, all the things that you want to say to her. To say thanks, thanks for being my mum, for caring for me, for loving my children and helping us all out so much, thank you!
The fact that cards are so fancy means that after the day is over, my mum cuts all the shapes out and uses them for crafty things when my children call round to her house, it means that they will always be there, in the paintings, the drawings, the toilet roll figures, and she keeps them all in a box to show the boys when they are older.
These ones from Asda are of superb quality, beautiful designs and lovingly thought out.
