Now that Valentines day is out of the way, the next ‘celebration’ day is Mothers Day, and it’s on Sunday 15th March in case you’re not already aware! At the bottom of this post is a link for you to get a FREE photo card for your mum, but read on first! It will be my last one as a ‘mum to one’ unless baby decides to come early. My mum and I are taking Athena to London on the day after Mothering Sunday, for lunch at Duck & Waffle and maybe a visit to the Science Museum too.
I find it hard to buy presents for my mum, and now Sam’s mum too as present buying for my family in-law seems to have fallen to me since, well since we got together actually! Although saying that life actually got easier in the present buying respect when Athena arrived, because what Gran doesn’t want something with a picture of their first grandkids face plastered on it? Hurrah! This year I got designed and ordered them both personalised items from Truprint, and next year they’ll probably get upgrades with both children’s faces on seeing as grandkid number two will be here by then!
Their gifts this year will include mugs, keyrings and fridge magnets, although Truprint also offer a range of other items, including coasters, calendars, jigsaws, photo blocks and notebooks!
I wish I had the time and energy to make them something properly home made, like a decoupaged photo frame, or a really nicely put together photo montage. I did get a set of photos printed too of the monthly photos we’ve been taking of Athena since she arrived, and hope to do something crafty with them at some point! Maybe having them printed and ready will make me want to do something with them! Check out my pinterest board below to see some ideas of what you could try out if you had more energy and time than this pregnant mama does!
