Birthday Wish List! A Gift Guide For Mums

Since I became a Mummy, I've learnt that you rarely have time to think about things. So, when my birthday is around the corner, I'm usually very under prepared. I don't know what gifts I'd like, which makes it harder on the people buying for me. I hate it when people don't tell me what they'd like for their birthday, so it annoys me when I do the same to them!

So, I decided to come up with a little 'birthday wish list'. This is a list of things that I'd enjoy for my birthday, and might be good for other mums too. If you're having trouble thinking of gift ideas, it might be worth giving this list a read!

We all know that motherhood is a blessing. But, that doesn’t mean it’s not stressful! Life as a mum is a constant mix of joy and stress. This tends to sap the life out of you sometimes and leave you tired and uptight. At the end of a long day, you just want to sit back and relax. Bearing that in mind, a footbath makes the perfect birthday gift. Nothing beats sitting on the sofa with your feet resting in a luxurious footbath. It’s guaranteed to make the stress melt away and leave you feeling relaxed and at peace.

If you have a family, then a lot of the time will be spent in the kitchen cooking meals. You have to make them breakfast, lunch and dinner, every day. It’s not too hard, especially if you like cooking, but there is one thing that can turn it into a pain. Bad kitchenware can make cooking an absolute nightmare. Why is it called a non-stick pan if stuff still sticks to it!? Anyway, enough of the rage, it’s time we got some new stuff. New pots and pans and cooking utensils can make cooking a joy once again.


Being a mother means you’re constantly looking at the time. You have things to do and places to be; you have to make sure you’re punctual! So, a new watch makes the perfect gift for a mum. And, why not add some style while you’re at it. You can get some lovely Michael Kors watches that will have the other playground mums green with envy. Getting a new watch is a great idea because you now have the time on your wrist at all times. You’re not frantically looking around for a clock to see if you’re late for something.


Sleeping Gear

When your children are young, it tends to be hard for you to get a good night’s sleep. Even when they’re quiet, you have trouble relaxing and slipping off into dreamland. Sometimes, all you need is a little help to make you comfortable. I’d suggest you get some new sleeping gear to help you in the night. Some lovely new PJ’s that are comfy and snug will go a long way to helping you sleep. Also, consider getting a sleep mask too. Sleep masks are great because they plunge you into darkness, which makes it easier for you to snooze.
