Celebrating Love For all Mums this Mother’s Day

Families come in all shapes and sizes, all wonderful, all valid and this Mother's day is about celebrating ALL MUMS and those mothering figures in your life. The idea of the cereal packet nuclear family is thankfully changing and whether you are a single parent, biological parent, adoptive parent, foster parent, same-sex parent, a non-binary parent who sees themselves as a mothering role, or an older sibling taking on the role of parent, everyone deserves to be celebrated, because family life is diverse and unique and individually beautiful.

I'm so proud of my little family unit, the adventures my boys and I embark on, the things we learn along the way and that I get to see them grow into themselves, while I myself continue to grow as an individual. I am continuously grateful on a daily basis that I still have my own mum in my life, especially after losing my Dad in my late teens. She recently turned 75 and is still painting, tiling and getting out her power tools regularly to help me with fixing stuff around my house. Her support and love do not go unnoticed as well as being a role model to me on how to thrive as an independent person regardless of age, and I hope to be the same to my boys.

This year I am partnering up with Boots to encourage everyone to celebrate all the different mother figures we are lucky to have in our lives, including oneself. They have such a huge array of Mother's Day presents that you are sure to find a unique and meaningful gift.

As my mum continues to make stuff with her hands, from sewing to DIY as well as being a keen gardener and never staying still, I thought I would treat her to a hand care set, as not only is this practical but also a treat I know she will actually use. The Joules Mini hand care set includes an exfoliating hand scrub, nourishing hand cream and soap, in a lovely toiletry bag.

While I never expect any more than a handmade card from my kids and some jam on toast in the morning, this year I am giving myself a pat on the back, for what has been quite an up-and-down year. I'm going to be turning 40 next year and I don't have a skincare routine, well I do, but it simply involves washing my face with soap morning and night and trying to remember to put on moisturiser daily.

Like most mums, I often overlook some of my own needs, and while I do focus on the things that give me joy, such as spending as much time outdoors as possible, there are other areas, especially as I'm getting older, that I do need to focus on a little more. But I am also about low maintenance and minimal fuss which is why the No7 Protect & Perfect skincare 5-piece gift set is perfect, it has everything I need in one box, to help me create an easy and doable skincare routine, that I feel even I can stick to and fits into my busy life and makes a great gift for Mum.

I am also working on prioritising small moments of calm because when you become a parent you simply don't get enough of that. While my kids love bath fizzers I thought it would be nice to treat myself to a few that I can put aside just for me. These Joules bath fizzers are really sweet and a great little pick-me-up and would also be perfect for those who are searching for a first Mother's Day gift.

Mothers day


  1. I certainly take a lot of "me time" around mother's day. It very important that we mom take care of ourselves so we can better take care of our family.

  2. Boots always do some great gifts, I know I'd love to get any of the Joules products. So important for all mums (blood or not) to be celebrated x

  3. I love the bath fizzers. Makes your bath a little bit special and great for having a bit of me time

  4. I love taking time out and having a bit of a pamper session. We all need to recuperate every so often, burn out is not fun! Xx Kira

  5. Thanks for the article, its really very useful.
