Mothers Day this year will be my first, and it’s less than two weeks away. I have put together a few gift ideas that won’t break the bank, so Mr Goodland, take note.
Get Creative – DIY presents I think always go down well.
1. Make a Card
Pick up some card, paper, pens or crayons and let your child make their own card. If your child is just a baby you could put their hand/feet prints on a card or just simply make one from them. You can pick up some baby-safe ink pads from Babies R Us for £4.99.
2. Put a family/favourite photo into a picture frame.
|Photo Frame £2.99 (B&M)|
I think most people have an empty photo frame lying around the house which they have been meaning to fill, but then it was put to the bottom of the list each day, week, month, years. In finding
a nice family photo or even a family favourite and putting it in the photo frame creates a simple gift. After all, a photo speaks a thousand words.
3. Create a photo album
|Photo Album £3.75 (Wilkinsons)|
This will take a bit of time, but if you have lots of photos from over the years then create a photo album of them all. If you don’t have many photos then start an album for it to be continued as a family throughout the years to come.
4. Make a box of treats
Creating a box of goodies means you can cater it for that special mummy’s taste. Things such as Hot Chocolate, Bath Bombs, Cookies, Candles, Wine, DVD, Book, New PJ’s and some Bath Oil will all go down well if that is what she likes.
5. Personal Organiser
Being a parent means you have to be extremely organised. Birthdays, doctors appointments, holidays, grandparent visits, school related information all have to be documented. Some organisers can be expensive but you can also find some for under £20.
A diary will work in documenting things down and you can pick one of these up to match all sorts of budgets. The Secret Garden Diary is my favourite as I love the book, and you can also get it in many different front covers such as, Alice in Wonderland, To Kill and Mockingbird, Sherlock Holmes and many more.
|Diary £12.95 (Notonthehighstreet)|
How about getting a Diary where you can write 1 line a day for 5 years. This gift would best suit someone who loves to write and enjoys keepsakes.
|One Line a Day Diary £8.39 (Amazon)|
There are many gifts out there but these are just a few ideas.
