With just over 5 weeks to go until the big day, it’s time to get cracking with the Christmas shopping. Last week we looked at some of the best advent calenders around, and this week’s gift guide includes ideas for Mums – or maybe just treats for yourself! This is in no way a wish list containing hints for my husband. Honest.

1. Personalised Jewellery
I was given a cute silver necklace for my 30th Birthday. It’s from Posh Totty and is personalised with the girl’s names. I’m also loving these silver stacker rings from the same designer.
I’m not usually into candles, but I’m intrigued by Imperial Candles. Each one features an item of jewellery worth between £10 and £2,000 – it’s like a sweet smelling lottery. These should be given with an IOU for an hour of peace and quiet!
3. Me time
Forget gift cards for clothes, get her a voucher for some pampering, or to go out for afternoon tea or cocktails.
4. Costa gift card
Because mums need caffeine. And somewhere to enjoy five minutes of peace when the toddler eventually falls asleep in the pushchair!
5. Christmas mug
This Cath Kidston mug is super cute for those festive hot chocolates.
6. Family calendar
This is a must for keeping track of all those birthdays, appointments and play dates, and I really couldn’t do without mine! Currently we are using a ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt family organiser’ with a column for each family member.
7. Changing bag
Coco Bow sell a gorgeous, but pricey leather change bag if you really want to push the boat out. For a more purse friendly option, Babymel has a range of bags including this one below.
8. A camera for capturing those special moments
I would love a new camera. One that’s easy to use, doesn’t take much fiddling about with but captures professional looking, high quality images. Perfect for my blog and those family photo books. And I really should start taking more photos of every day moments, not not just blurry ones on my phone! There’s so much choice out there though, its hard to know what to buy without breaking the bank, so any suggestions welcome!
9. Wrist Watch
No more excuses for being late for the school run with this leather watch from Fossil. Okay, so one less excuse for being late for the the school run!
10. Luxury make up set
This Benefit Cosmetics make up kit is perfect for covering up those dark circles from night feeds and being woken up at 5am by over excited kids.
