Mother’s Day Flowers from Blossoming Gifts

You may remember the lovely Valentines Day flowers that I was sent from online florists Blossoming Gifts to review a few weeks back.  If you didn’t see the post you can go ahead and read it here, the flowers were beautiful and I am delighted to write that they’ve approached me again to work with them to promote their range of Mother’s Day flowers and bouquets.

Debenhams Mother’s Day Flowers

The lovely folk at Debenhams contacted me last week to remind me that Mother’s Day is just around the corner, like it would be possible to forget with the amount of card shops and gift retailers pushing this annual day down your throat from the middle of February onwards.

Before I go any further Mother’s Day is not about having your kids go out and spend their hard earned pocket money on a mass produced piece of tat.  I’d rather have a hug, spend the day baking cakes, going for a walk in the park and feeding the ducks.  I don’t need much more than this.  However, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to spoil my mum.

7 Mother’s Day Facts

There is one day of the year when we have to make an extra special effort for our mums. Regardless of whether you go for an expensive slap-up meal or simply buy a bunch of flowers, every mum around the world appreciates a little bit of extra love and attention on this day.

My mum and I are exceptionally close and even though she pretends Mother’s Day isn’t her thing I love doing something extra special for her each year to remind her just how amazing she is.

As a mum myself I have loved getting home made cards and presents you cannot beat it.

My Perfect Mother’s Day Gifts

Homemade mother's day cardsYesterday was Mothering Sunday and my first Mother’s Day as a single parent.  Roo had been away the weekend with her dad and I was excited to have her back and my heart melted when I answered the door and there she stood in her new animal print skater dress for Tesco and red Dr Martens clutching flowers, a bag and her cards.

Her grin was wide and the words ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ burst from her lips and she couldn’t wait to get inside and show me what she had got.

I opened the cute card which she had written, and then turned to the gifts.  A beautiful bouquet of fragrant pink hyacinths in a vintage style tin basket smelt absolutely divine and she knows I love flowers.  Then there was also my gorgeous jewelled ‘Mum’ mug that I have proudly sipped coffee and tea from today.

Mother Knows Best

ShopitizeIt’s a true saying and as a child one that annoys you when you’re own mother continually reminds you of this very fact. I love the fact that Disney cleverly bought this classic phrase to live in their hit movie Rapunzel and I love singing this song to Roo when we watch the film together.

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and never has there been a day more apt to utter the words ‘Mother Knows Best’ and it seems that what we know has a habit of rubbing off onto our daughters as Shopitize found out in a recent survey of Brits and how their mums had influenced their lives.
