Come to Mama's House
My friend bought me a bunch of these stunning dried flowers for my birthday and I instantly fell in love. Now they are my go to for any gift and would be perfect for Mother's Day. Flowers that you don't have to change the water, flowers that don't die, flowers that brighten up any room, yes please! They have a large variety of bunches to pick from so you can pick one to match your home's colour scheme. I love the brights but they have some gorgeous natural ones too.
My friend who is currently pregnant recently received a box from Oh Mumma and it was such a beautiful idea. It came in wonderful packaging and was full of goodies for self care just for mum. Founded by two mum's Shannon and Kyra who both have experience in the beauty industry you can feek confident that these boxes are full of the best products. You can also build your own box for a more personal touch. £1 of every box sold goes towards creating a box for a mum staying at Ronald McDonald House while her child receives medical treatment.
Nappy Cake Shop
We recently bought one of these for our colleague and were overwhelmed with how gorgeous and packed full it was. What a brilliant idea! The nappy cakes include nappies, muslins, a cuddly toy, milestone cards and many more options depending on which you pick. They come wrapped with a bow and gift card where you can write a personalised message.
