Mother’s day 2019 in the UK is now past but if you didn’t have a chance to get that mum in your life something to use to treat herself, here’s the concluding part to my gift guide for a 30 something-year-old mother. Who knows, the 30-something-year-old mother in your life just might like one of them. A great gift takes a lot of thought and should be based on what the person likes. So here are some of my interests and gift recommendations:
Gardening gifts for mother’s day 2019
Two years down the line, I’m still learning the ropes of gardening but totally loving it. However, I dreaded prepping my garden for summer as I had a pair of garden gloves that could not withstand the thorns on my menace of an ancient rose tree. The slightest sunshine and we get new branches getting everywhere. I had to call a friend to help me out. The thorns are SCARY!
So for mother’s day 2019, if you know a mum that has a garden your present can be to ask her to sit with a large mug of hot chocolate (or whatever else she likes to drink) and offer to do her gardening for her. If that’s not an option, you can get her a pair of really thick garden gloves that most thorns can’t pierce through.
I haven’t used these gloves myself but the reviews about them are quite promising and I know I would like a pair myself too
The other day, I read a blog post about self-care and it reminded me that as a mother, it is nice to give one’s self a treat every so often. The post I read went on to say that I should buy myself a new lipgloss immediately. Just reading that post reminded me that since becoming a mother, I hadn’t indulged in one of my very few pleasures. A lipgloss was possibly the only “make-up” you would see me use. I can’t explain why but I loved going to my local drug store (Super Drug) to purchase a tube of Bourjois lipgloss. Using it always brought a smile to my face, it made my lips extra glossy and . . .
Anyhoos, if you know a mum who hasn’t made time to care for herself for a while, getting her a new lipgloss should bring a smile to her face, I hope.
This is the link to the lipgloss I used to buy and I think I’m going to order myself a new one now
Plays for 2019 Mother’s Day
I love watching Nigerian plays in a theatre and I must admit it’s been, give or take, around 8 years now since I last saw one. That’s why I think the Nigerian play HOARD, written by Bim Adewunmi and directed by Femi Elufowoju Jr would be a great treat for me.
HOARD is a new play about family, feuds and food and is set in the heart of Dalston, London. It shows from 15 May – 8 June 2019 at the arcola theatre. Click here to book your tickets now. If I am able to sort out a baby sitter, I think I would like to go watch this play myself.
