With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to think how to best celebrate your mum. Unfortunately this year I won’t get to see my mum as I’ll be working, so I’ll have to give her her gift (along with her birthday gift from mid April!) the next time we see each other. I’ll still certainly give her a call on the day, but it’s likely she’ll be working too! It’s also my mum’s first year as a granny now that Ruby (my brother’s little girl) is here, and by the time Mother’s Day rolls around, Ruby will be almost 3 months old. Time goes so quickly. Of course, along with first time grandmothers, and even great grandmothers, comes first time mums like my sister in law. I’ll be in those shoes next year, and Spot will almost be one year old!
Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Do you have trouble buying gifts for your mum? Is she the kind of woman who has everything she needs, or does she love new shiny things? Here’s my round up of gifts that every woman – mother or otherwise – needs in her life, be it a Mother’s Day gift, a birthday gift, or a just because you’re awesome gift.

You can change out the moscato for whatever vice it is that helps your household run! Vodka? Coffee? Gin & Tonic? Chocolate? The sky is the limit, really!

Grey and Blue Silk and Cotton Scarf – Oxfam Shop
Winter is coming, and who doesn’t love a lush scarf to keep them warm? A scarf is also the perfect accessory for any outfit. I love the winter tones of this gorgeous scarf from Oxfam, made ethically in Vietnam. Available online and in store (AUD $29.95 + postage fees if purchasing online).
