With Mother's Day coming up on Sunday the 12th of May, I thought it would be fitting this week that I write this blog as a mum to give you a few Mothers Day gift ideas 2020 seems to be the year for. It only takes a quick glance around the schoolyard to find that all mums are different. In essence, there are sporty mums, crafty mums, laid back mums and mums (like me) who live in a blissfully blind panic trying to keep up with their kids. However, for all the dads and kids out there trying to find the perfect Mother's Day gift, I can tell you there are some gifts which would suit almost all mums. Make sure to browse our range of Mothers Day gifts 2020.
Mums spending their time with children seem to be continuously followed by noise. As lovely as this can be (i.e. they never feel lonely), an hour of uninterrupted solitude may be just what a busy mum needs. An hour to sit back, read a book and have a cup of tea may be just the gift to show mum how much you care. Especially now in 2020, when a lot of us have no other choice but to spend most of our time at home, in self-isolation with our families and kids.
What mum would sniff her nose at a little 'me time'? Sitting back with a cup of tea (and we have lots of pampering tea and coffee gift hampers for Mother's Day)? Some time for a nice bath with a glass of champagne and some luxurious body products?
Ideally, this would be something along the lines of a filter for kids that stopped them in their tracks before fighting over whatever current fad, or just because they're stuck at home. Better yet, this filter would work by only allowing kids to make positive comments on the dinner selection. "Gee mum, this broccoli is delicious; I love how many vegetables we have the pleasure of tasting in this meal!" What mum would not beam hearing this kind of encouragement? If this seems like a pipe dream, then a Mother's Day dinner made by someone else might be just the gift (followed by a delicious box of chocolates where mum gets to pick first!).
Of course, I am also looking forward to Mother's Day this year. I cannot wait for the gifts handmade by little hands and for the absolute pleasure of being followed by all the busy family noise. If I happen to be presented with any gift from point 1 to 3, I will be a happy mum indeed.
