Win a £50 Voucher from Voucher Express for Mother’s Day

What is your perfect Mother’s Day Gift?

If someone asked me what my perfect Mother’s Day would be, it would be going to the local pub for a Sunday Roast with my family and a bottle of wine, which I hope to do this year.

I love the cards and gifts that my daughter makes and brings home from school.  Currently, she’s been sneakily creating something at home and keeps shouting at me to close my eyes or leave the room.  I can’t wait to see what it is.

It’s not just Mother’s Day Gifts, but birthdays, Christmas and Valentine’s as well, I’d much prefer to receive an experience, preferably something my daughter and I could do together (e.g. Theatre, Cinema, Dining out or a book we can read together)  .  A lot of the tat will slowly make its way through the house eventually ending up in a keep sake box in the loft or in the recycle bin.  However, the memories of a day out with my daughter will last forever.

My Top Ten Mother’s Day Gifts for Fun Mum’s

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Mums with Personality

To avoid disappointment on Mother’s Day I take charge and organise it myself, which usually involves booking us into the pub for lunch.  Every Mother’s Day I seem to get flowers and a card, without sounding ungrateful the only people who really benefit here are Interflora and Hallmark.

Of course I cherish the cards and gifts my daughter makes at school and keep them all, even if I’m not sure what some of them are.

If  you want something done right, do it yourself – unknown

I’ve been trolling the internet to find inspiration for Mother’s Day Gifts, and I felt like I was transported to the 1950s.  Are mum’s really that boring these days?  I don’t do a lot of gardening, I don’t eat chocolate, I’m too busy to read many books, I wear minimal jewellery, baking is not my strong point, I don’t have the patience for jigsaw puzzles and I’m not a Yummy Mummy.

However, I like to think I have a great sense of humour, enjoy practical things and a lover of gadgets.

You Can’t Scare Me T-Shirt

I’m not sure what occasion or when I would wear this would be good to have in the wardrobe for those days I need a bit more attitude.

Is it #wineoclock yet?  I know I like wine but I don’t know a lot about it.

I really want to put this photo of my daughter on a canvas and put it above my desk as it makes me laugh and would cheer me up when I’m having a stressful day. Picanova is currently offering 72% off canvases so I may treat myself  (offer ends 23rd Mar 14).

Scratch Map

Prior to children I was a rather intrepid traveler and have lost count of the number of countries I have been to.  I’d like to be able to glance up and remind myself of those good old days.

Muffin Top Moulds

As I mentioned earlier I don’t often bake, but I would definitely use these as they crack me up.

Foot Spa

I won’t bore you with the details but I’m struggling with my feet at the moment and this looks blissful.

Executive Shaving

Smart Crock Pot

This has my name all over it, I love a bit of tech and have an unhealthy obsession with my slow cooker.  It would be fab to be able to control it remotely.

Diagnostic Code Reader for Cars

There is nothing worse, as a woman, walking into a garage not knowing a lot about cars and having that sinking feeling you are going to be ripped off.  I’d love to be able to diagnose the problem before going in, plus it would save me the £80 for them to run the diagnostics each time

Can someone please give my husband a nudge? TIA
