10 Mother’s Day Gifts We’d Love To Receive This Year That AREN’T Flowers!

This year in light of the Coronavirus pandemic, Mother’s Day may look a little different. We can’t be spoilt by being taken out to lunch, and who knows when we’ll be able to use vouchers to get a massage or our nails done!

While flowers are always a beautiful gift to receive on Mother’s Day, they aren’t very practical either (not to mention the gorgeous, aroma filled things only last a couple of days and can be super expensive).

So, we’ve pulled together a list of useful gifts we REALLY want this Sunday from our kids (cough – partners).

Start hinting now, mums!

10 Practical Gift Ideas For Mother’s Day

If you don’t already have one of these, then we recommend you get one now! This clever vegetable cutting contraption means you can enjoy your favourite pasta dish, without all those heavy calories from the pasta.

This means you will be able to make and enjoy our yummy Zucchini Noodles and Feta and Mint Pesto dish.

2. A  lie in

5 ways to MAINTAIN a flat tummy

Mums are often sleep-deprived and any extra time in bed is always appreciated!

Rather than jumping on her bed in the early hours of Sunday morning, give it a couple of hours and let her wake up naturally.

3. Gift Voucher For Clothes

This is especially handy for our community mums who are kicking goals and losing weight this year! We need new active wear – like our Healthy Mummy vest tops – to show off our new amazing bodies!

4. Cute Recorded Messages

Ask your kids for a cute recorded personal message, song or dance for Mother’s Day. It would be a lovely memento to keep of your brood in their younger years.

5. 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Subscription

Noticed your wife checking out The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge?

Yes, she wants to sign up! No, she hasn’t done it yet. Yes, you should definitely do it for her with love from the kids!

6. A Day Off

Completely guilt-free to do whatever it is that we like to do. And no pesky phone calls while we’re doing it please!

7. Thoughtfulness

At the end of the day, what we really want from our loved ones is for them to show us THEY HAVE thought about, well, mum! Any gift and or card that says – yes mummy you are appreciated – goes a long way!

8. Homemade Vouchers
