    Personalised Mother’s Day Gift Ideas | I Just Love It

    This is THE best Mother’s Day gift I’ve ever received and I just love it – pun intended. Before I tell you what the gift was, let just say this. Every year, I look forward to Mother’s Day. For some, it’s another annoying date on the calendar after Valentine’s and before Easter. However, for me it’s a chance to acknowledge and show appreciation to all the mothers and mother-figures in my life.

    I never got the chance to show my mum how much I loved and valued her. So for me to get a personalised Mother’s Day gift, breakfast in bed, or even a handmade cards from my kids fills me with pure  joy (see what I did there? hehe). Aside from Christmas and birthdays, it’s the one other day in the year where I feel some extra love. This year Mother’s Day started a bit early for me with the #bestmumbrunch hosted by I Just Love It in conjunction with their sister company, Historic Newspaper at Percy and Founders.

    I’m a journalist so it’s no surprise that one of my greatest love is the news and reading. You can understand my excitement when I received a certified newspaper published on my birth date from Historical Papers. I mean no words can even express the gratitude and love I have for it. I have stashed it in safe please so it won’t be destroyed by my mini mes and man-child.

    There is something about personalised gifts that makes them feel extra special. It truly shows how much time and effort the giver put into it. I love my Shimmer Silver Bracelet  with my initials on it. Even though hubby is on the name changing thing for when we renew our vows, I will always look at this monogrammed plate and remember it as who I was before the ‘rebranding’.

    I was also gifted a silver-plated vintage dessert spoon and again, I just love it. It’s truly a present that gift holds so much value and can be passed on. As well as the other mentioned gift, I was kindly given a spread love butter knife, personalised statement egg cup and an engraved high ball glass.
