Mother’s Day Gifts for a First Time Mum
After 8 years of infertility, I’d all but given up on ever experiencing Mother’s Day from the other side, so I’d never really thought about Mother’s Day Gifts as a first time mum. Each year as we ate out in restaurants and I researched gift guides and ways to treat your mum, it was tinged with a little bit of sadness that it didn’t look like anyone would ever be doing that for me. Finally, in 2017 I was 8.5 months pregnant for Mother’s Day yet it still seemed so unrealistic and crazy that in 2018 I’d have a baby! As I waddled my exceedingly pregnant butt to the restaurant table and proceeded to consume half the menu (I may have embraced the whole “eating for two” thing a little too literally..) I was still a little bit in denial that in a few weeks I’d be giving birth. My induction started 10 days later! So here we are in 2018 and I’ve got a happy, healthy 11 month old baby boy and it’s fast approaching both my first Mother’s Day and his first birthday! I’ve collated some gift ideas for that extra special first Mother’s Day. For me, it really is something to remember.
