Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away.
Can you believe it?
If you’re feeling a bit behind the eight ball, it’s not you – Mother’s Day falls the earliest it can this year, on Sunday 8th May.
I really love Mother’s Day, particularly now I’m a Mum and find myself the lucky recipient of hand made treasures, cards and a bounty of random gifts from the school Mother’s Day stall. And yes, the silver cat ring holder Mr 7 gave me two years ago is still going strong!
But I know it can also be a stressful or sad day. So, whatever your circumstances, I hope you have some space and time to yourself this Mother’s Day. We’re thinking of you sisters.
If part of the stress is buying for someone who has everything, is tricky to please or you’re just looking for some new ideas, I’m here to help. I’ve got you, your Mum, Mother in Law and Step Mum covered in my bumper Mother’s Day gift guide.
As well as the usual pjs, slippers and mugs (who doesn’t love an update every now and then), I’ve curated a range of beautiful accessories, home wares and clothes to suit a variety of budgets and styles.
Let’s begin with these beauties which are all under $25.

Some mums don’t necessarily want to receive a gift but they’d love to spend some time doing something together. Often I buy a small gift to give on the day and arrange something to do together later. This could include a day trip, high tea, a weekend away, doing a class together (cooking, craft, learning a language).
