This Mother’s Day I am dragging the celebrations out for a whole weekend instead of the usual 24 hours and I’m not a bit ashamed. We will be spending Saturday cooking up a big family lunch at our house (Shaun is doing the cooking!) and then on Mother’s Day itself, we are out for brunch and then cosying up at home for the day.
And that’s what it is all about for me – just time off from the usual chores and drudgery but with lots of uninterrupted time with the family. Mother’s Day is absolutely not about the gift giving and to be honest I have never really bothered about receiving a gift or not but I do absolutely love it when the kids make a card or a little gift themselves – that’s always super sweet, don’t you think?
Giving gifts however is a different story…I really love to pick out a thoughtful gift for my own mother and mother in law and I love to see their faces light up. I think the nicest part is that they never expect anything so it’s always a lovely surprise.
Handmade gifts are big news this year and I think giving a gift that’s handmade adds a little extra special touch. Knowing the background, design, care and thought that has gone into the gift you give is just such a lovely feeling and really helps you to select the right gift for the right person.
I’ve recently discovered that Amazon have a handmade section of their website called Handmade at Amazon, which was a bit of a surprise if I’m honest. I’m a big fan of Amazon and buy so much from them due to the convenience and super quick postage turnaround, so to combine this with the handmade touch is a real gem of an idea.
