So off I went to our local Boots store to view their range of gifts. If you would like to see what made it onto my wish list then please take a look at my Google + album.
It got me thinking about how little I actually treat myself. As a busy mum of three and wife of one, I spend a lot of time running around after other people. I hardly have time to buy myself new clothes let alone something more indulgent. Somehow, in the last five years I have lost a little bit of me. The only pamper products I really have are gifts from family. I am pretty sure that a lot of Mums can identify with this.
After much searching, I decided that a fragrance would be my choice of treat. It's something I wouldn't really think of buying myself and often too expensive to ask for as a gift from others. So how do you chose the right fragrance to buy? Well if you are a bargain hunter with two hungry boys that want to eat the sandwiches and crisps that you have put into your basket, you quickly head over to the Mother's Day fragrance displays.
I narrowed it down to two fresh floral scents that both had good discounts. In the end I asked middle man to chose for me!
As my husband was working away I asked big man what he thought of my choice after he had finished school.
"It's nice Mummy. It smells of flowers."
How do you treat yourself? Do you put the rest of the family first and forget that you can have the odd indulgence? Have you compiled a gift list for Mother's Day to give your other half or children a helping hand?Is it the special homemade gifts that make your Mother's Day special? I really am quite excited to see big man's card creation. At the end of the day, that is what I will remember years down the line.
