Celebrating Mama on Mothers Day


With March just around the corner, that means its almost Mothers Day. Here in the UK it falls on Sunday 11th this year. I’m sure like most Mama’s, what I’d like most of all is a nice long lie in, breakfast in bed and an entire day of doing nothing. Not so sure how likely that is to happen though, unfortunately! Still, a Mama can dream, can’t she?

Failing a ‘day off’ then a few treats are always much appreciated, while Mothers Day can easily become just another commercial money spinner, it doesn’t have to be. mamas do so much hard work, that I think it’s important to show them just how much they are appreciated, and while that should happen every day, having a special day means you can make a little extra effort so she knows that she is loved!

What should we get Mama?


Personally, I prefer a homemade card to a shop bought one, I have a box full of cards that my kiddos have made over the years for me. They are so much more special than a card from the card shop. Here are some great ideas if you’re stuck for inspiration!


I’m always pleased to get some a bouquet of beautiful blooms. Especially given the weather this year, some colourful spring flowers are bound to put a smile on your Mama’s face.

A new bag

You can never have too many bags right? {please, tell me it’s not just me that has hundreds?!}. This absolutely gorgeous turquoise kantha tote is from Ethihub. The bag itself is beautifully made, with an internal pocket and a zippered top, it’s a fantastic size for an everyday bag too. Ethihub is a great shop to support – full of ethically made and fairly traded goods – buying from them means that you are helping to support the artisans in Southern India.

A book

Why not treat Mama to a new book, make her a cup of tea, and let her curl up this Mothers Day to read it in peace? Rupi Kaur’s poems are so beautifully written, words that speak to your soul.

A magazine

A good, independent magazine is a great gift idea – my current favourite is the beautiful ‘Plants are Magic‘ – with 80 pages of plant-based art, craft, food, healing, interviews, stories, experiences, recipes, and tutorials inside.


Mothers Day isn’t the same without some chocolate – these iChoc bars are absolutely delicious AND vegan!
