HOT MUMMAS I Our Fave Mothers Day Gifts for Tired New Mummies


Mothers are the world’s greatest multi-taskers, and are usually juggling a million things every day, with no time for or thought for themselves. A tired Mum deserves a treat now and then, and Mother's Day is the perfect time to do it.

When it comes to new mums, often the baby's father will buy his partner a gift on behalf of their young baby/toddler(s) and will need some inspiration.

Whether the pressie buyer is on a budget looking for a bargain mother's day gift, or at the other end of the scale treating the lovely mummy to a luxury present, or somewhere in between: look no further.

As tired new mummies ourselves, here are some Mummy gifts that we would be very happy to receive on Mothering Sunday, 30th March 2014!! We are in serious need of pampering

What could be cuter or more thoughtful than presenting a new mum with a personalised quirky print for the nursery? Or a heartfelt 'mother' print, and all the special thoughts and messages conjured up by the kids to describe their mother.

White Company Ltd Edition Mirrored Glass Rose Candle
£22 from

For young ladies, roses and mums have a strong resonance, they evoke warm feelings as the scent is something we can all relate to having seen mum presented with a few bunches over the years!

Some of our favourite perfume bases (Vivienne Westwood Boudoir) belong to the heart of the Rose. Therefore, this stunning signature candle ticks loads of boxes with its classic White Company style packaging, mirrored white glass and beautiful rosebud scent. Just divine.

Mum's Skin Saviours Green People Mother's Day Gift Set
£12.95 from

For pregnant ladies or Mums who are breastfeeding, and for any eco and health conscious mother, the Green people range is the perfect choice for skincare. Their lovely natural products are safe, nasty and cruelty free, and organic.

This lovely gift set contains the perfect duo of facial moisturiser and hand cream - mummy skin essentials:

Vita Min Fix (25ml)
A vitamin-packed moisturiser to plump and firm the skin both day and night. This contains lots of vitamins and minerals and Evening Primrose, Avocado and Seaweed. I found this a great consistency-creamy but not too light or too heavy. Smells fresh and lovely. My skin looked great after a couple of uses.

Help at Hand (50ml)
This rich, indulgent hand cream is perfect for keeping hands soft and pampered. Help at Hand is a rich cream aimed at people with normal, dry or irritated hands. It is rich but not greasy and sinks in easily. It has a light, pleasant scent but that doesn't linger too long. It feels really moisturising even a few hours after application. It comes in a small 50ml pump format with lid, so it is easy to throw into your handbag and doesn't leak or get messy.

It contains organic olive, hemp, beeswax, lavender and rose geranium oil. It states that it is vegetarian not vegan due to the beeswax content. Personally I eat vegan, but I still eat honey and use beeswax. A personal choice.

Mum's Skin Saviours is made without SLS, parabens, alcohol (ethyl alcohol/ethanol), lanolin, artificial fragrance, petrochemicals, methylisothiazolinone, methylchloroisothiazolinone, phthalates and colourants to bring you the purest Mother's Day gift that nature can offer.

£19.95 from John Lewis

If a Mum has a toddler or young child, then a Gro-clock is a great Mother’s Day present, because it means she may actually get a lie in! The idea is that kids stay in bed until they see the sun on the clock face. This clock uses fun images of the stars and sun to communicate when to go back to sleep and when it's time to get up. The perfect antidote for tired mummies trying to get a toddler into a routine.

See my daughter below playing with hers and loving it, as well as the special story book that comes with it.

Dr. Organic Rose Perfect Complexion
Available from Holland and Barrett

The perfect gift for a mum who likes to take care of her skin. A beautifully presented set containing some of the most popular Dr Organic Rose Otto products.

Rose otto is a softly scented softening ingredient, popular with mums over the ages! This lovely set really makes the skin smell and feel soft and gogeous, just what a mummy needs.

Set includes:
  • Rose Otto Face Mask 125ml
  • Rose Otto Face Scrub 125ml
  • Rose Otto Facial Serum 30ml

Neals Yard Rose and Pomegranate Bath Oil
£14.75 for 100ml from

Perfect for tired mums, this new product from Neals Yard is sweetly scented, luxurious oil blend is carefully combined to restore a peaceful balance to mind and body. This is a replenishing and balancing formula. It contains damask rose, patchouli leaf, cedarwood and bergamot pure aromatherapy essences with a skin-softening, omega-rich base of organic pomegranate and apricot oils.

Lightly scented, with a softening calming rose scent yet a slightly fruity uplifting hit to it, this is just perfect for a tired mummy who wants to treat herself to one of the few daily luxuries she has time for: a hot silky bath. The oil is softening so you hardly need to moisturise afterwards: a time-saving bonus for mummies!

It is also certified organic, cruelty-free and suitable for vegans like me (CB). Yay! Neals Yard are a great ethical brand who believe that health and beauty should be more natural and less synthetic, and better for our planet.
