When it comes to Christmas, no one buys more presents than Santa but if anyone runs a close second then it’s mum, that’s why we’ve put this gift guide for mums together.
Mum is the person who keeps all the plates spinning at Christmas – not literally, otherwise the sprouts would roll off. She plans out numerous lists; which presents need buying, what food needs cooking, where last year’s decorations are – then she promptly runs out of time.
What follows is a race against the clock to create a Christmas worthy of Frank Capra, whilst battling online shopping orders and backlogged queues at supermarket express tills.
That’s why we think mums need something a little extra at Christmas – and we’re not just talking about Red Bull and Pro Plus. We’ve compiled a list of presents that are perfect for mothers and mums-to-be. Because a mum isn’t just for Christmas, but for life.
Fenton Slouch Changing Bag Bee – We like nothing more than a good slouch, and with this bag mum can do it in style! Its honeycomb design is gorgeous and based on geometric styles found on the fashion catwalks, no less. Not only is it elegant but it’s practical too; with an insulated bottle holder, removable dummy pouch, plenty of space and a hardwearing and water resistant fabric.
Hanging Star Photo Frame – The greatest gift a mum can ask for is memories with her child. OK, the best gift is an all-expense paid trip to the Maldives free of nappy changing and breast feeding, but memories come a close second. This wooden hanging decoration features a photo of your little one that you can treasure for years to come.
Jumper with Bejeweled Neckline – super soft knitwear to keep mum and baby bump comfortable and warm this winter whilst the silver sparkle jeweled necklace adds a touch of glitz and glamour.
Welcome to the World Scan Frame - With the way things are going, it won’t be long before sonograms are actually selfies taken by babies before they’re born. Until then, we have the classic scans which we can look at and treasure. And what better way than with this Welcome to the World frame? It’s a gorgeous oak-effect design that could take pride of place in any nursery and one that mums-to-be will love.
Jo Malone Candle – Ok now we know this isn’t a ‘Mamas & Papas’ gift but we know that any mum/mum-to-be would be thrilled to open this little treat on Christmas Day. The perfect present to provide the ultimate relaxation.
Now you have no excuse for forgetting mum this Christmas – go on start treating them!
