Spoiling my mum is one of my favourite things to do and if I could afford to, I’d be treating her every single week of the year. Unfortunately, that’s not always financially viable so taking the time on Mothering Sunday to show my appreciation is something I get a lot of joy out of doing. I appreciate just how lucky I am to still have my mum in my life and taking a few minutes out of my day – and a few pounds out of my bank account – to do this is something I really love. With this all said and done, I appreciate that sometimes it’s difficult to come up with a gift that goes beyond the normal bouquet of flowers. I love buying my mum flowers and I do every year without fail, but if you’re looking for something a little bit different this Mother’s Day then I’ve got you covered – with a week to spare.

Personalised Gifts


At the start of the month, the team at Snappysnaps got in touch with me to see if I wanted to collaborate on a Mother’s Day post. I ordered a wee personalised photo mug off the website with my mother in mind. A photo from my graduation of my brother and me is one of my favourites so it was that picture that first came to mind. The entire ordering experience was a really positive one – the mug itself came boxed up and was carefully packaged to make sure it didn’t get broken en route. I know that my mum will love having her morning cuppa in this mug – the perfect gift for a sentimental mum.
