Now I’d like to start this by saying I think everyday is Mothers Day….. but ‘officially’ this year its the 22nd of March.
So with Mothers Day round the corner, we’re reminded to give thanks and celebrate the brilliant women in our worlds! Those life giving wonders who birthed us, raised us and led us through this world. It’s a big, important job they do and they deserve more than a box of milk tray…
Fear not, for I am here to rescue you from the generic gift giving hole! I’ve put together this handy gift guide for all the Mothers in your life, from the expectant Mum to the Grandmothers. And what’s more each item in this guide are services and products produced by independent female businesses!
Now. To the guide!
Nannas, Nannys’ & Grans

A fond memory I have of my Nana was her incredible collection of teapots. Honestly they covered every inch of the house! So I had to include a tea gift in this guide!
Originally from Japan, Keiko came to the UK and says she was more than a bit disappointed with the green tea offerings she found. This inspired her to bring artisanal green tea from tea makers from across Japan. Keiko has blown my tiny mind with her green tea, it’s incredible and has honestly ruined all other green tea for me!

For the Mum who’s ready to start kicking butt again, book on with Amy. A great ball of positive energy, with an incredible understanding of the post-natal body! She’s a wonder woman who’s passionate about women health!
Teething is a rough ole time for baby and Mum too! So help ease the pain with a personalised amber teething necklace or bracelet.
Brand New Mums
Hair by Hannah Mlatem -
After a few days/weeks/months/who even knows what time is anymore of caring for a baby, it’s easy for a new Mum to put her needs on the back-burner. I say you remind her that her needs are just as important as caring for those of baby. Not only will she leave with envy inducing locks but she will also get the chance to enjoy a HOT cup of tea during her pamper!
The Perfect Home Cooked Meal with Not Naughty Nutrition -
The wonderful Emily of Not Naughty Nutrition has kindly put together a brilliant recipe to share with those looking to treat a brand new Mum to a nutritious, delicious, home cooked meal. Treat the tired new Mum in your life to a beautiful comforting meal PLUS stock up the freezer so they always have some to hand!
Mama Tote Bag -
New Mums may often/always find themselves with their hands full, neigh overflowing! It’s incredible how much stuff a baby needs whenever they leave the house! So give the new Mum a very useful tote bag with a handy ‘stay strong Mama’ reminder on the side.

Mums to Be
Yoga with Sarah Jones -
Give a Mum-to-be the time and space she needs to care for herself and prepare for baby’s arrival. With Sarah’s calming voice and guidance, the expectant Mother in your life can flourish through her pregnancy!
Mothers Milestone Cards-
We’ve all seen our friends post those adorable baby milestone cards, 12 weeks old, rolled over today, first tooth and so on.
But hey! What about Mums achievements? You know I’ll all about celebrating Mothers so these milestone cards are perfect for recognising your successes too!

Birth Affirmation Bracelet-
Throughout my pregnancy I used a simple birth affirmation to ease my nerves when I thought of what was ahead, “I relax, I release, I open.” A great gift for Mother to be would be to have a simple mantra like this hammered into her own piece of custom jewellery. To anchor her through pregnancy and childbirth, you can find some of my favourite affirmations here for inspiration.

And then I have a special gift which is sure to thrill every and any Mother…
