Top 5 Simple & Thoughtful Mother's Day Gifts

UK Mother's Day is this weekend, Sunday, 6 March!

I don't think I deserve an award for being a self-proclaimed super fab mom (hee), but I admit, it's really nice to be recognized on one special day for all those sleepless nights, school runs, playdates, creative dinners....must I go on?  I know my family loves and appreciates me, and just like many women, the simple and thoughtful ideas for Mother's Day would make me happy!

Here are my Top 5 Simple & Thoughtful Mother's Day Gift Ideas!

1. THE GROUP PHOTO FEATURING MOM

My children only hear my voice in videos or are shot by me in our photographs. I go for their secret, special moments that others don't see, so of course I'm always the one behind the camera. The only way I can be featured with the kids and create lasting memories on print is to have a professional behind the lens (forget my husband!). Helen Sanberg is an amazing photographer who shot me with the kids when Weston was a little munchkin. This is a present that lasts a lifetime.

2. FRESH FLOWERS

I never think to buy fresh flowers unless there is a celebration for someone! A floral subscription would be ideal (pretty please!). Flowerbx is the answer with fresh flowers from the markets in Holland.  Ahh, I'd actually get to stop and smell the roses! 

3. MASSAGE ME

The simple pleasure of a massage can rub out aches and pains and put mama in the zen mode. Why leave home when you can have magic hands come to you. I love a good session with Carla Williams

4. LOUNGING AROUND

I admit, some weekends we have pajama day where we just can't be bothered to get dressed! This calls for cozy loungewear, and I love the matchy matchy pieces from Roberta Roller Rabbit and simple basics from The White Company

5. FIRM UP

Let's just say I'd like to go back to basics and start boxing again to firm it all up. KoBox is the latest boxing gym that functions with nightclub music (!) on Kings Road. A few sessions would help me be a "knock out"! 

Top 5, just keeping it simple! Maybe I'll be surprised this weekend with one or a few Mother's Day treats this weekend. 

Happy Mother's Day!
