I love Mother’s Day. It really is one of those days of the year but I can quite comfortably justify breakfast in bed, maybe pancakes. I can usually ask for a present; this year it might be some trainers and I can milk some time alone, as well as some time with the kids.
I love putting together a gift guide with some ideas for Mother’s Day. These are products I would definitely want myself and without further ado, here are some of my ideas.
Workout Gear from Anonax Official
Anyone who knows me, knows I am a huge fan of training and working out! I have recently just got over an injury but I am loving my running and getting out and about.
Amonax Official stock some great home work out gear from resistance bands, to weights, to weight bars. Loads of choice and perfect for so extras for a home gym.
Perfect for Mums who are working on their fitness or strength training. These bands below retail at £8.99 and 4 different thicknesses, providing a wide range of resistance strengths. Amonax exercise bands also have added thickness, giving the bands greater durability to prevent snapping or rolling during exercises.
Creative Products from Stabilio

We were sent the Stabilo Easy Start, EASYgraph S pencils. These start at £1.18 to purchase and are an ergonomic graphite pencil. They are available in both left and right-handed versions. Its thin triangular shape and non slip recessed grip moulds along the whole pencil allows children to practice writing in comfort whilst encouraging the recommend tripod grip.
We were also sent Stabilo Boss Original Pastel Highlighters. These retail at £23.28 and they have a unique and distinctive shape which is recognised all over the world. Don’t worry if you forget to replace the cap, you are able to leave it off for up to 4 hours and the highlighter will regenerate once the cap is replaced.

Non-Alcoholic Soft Drinks from Fentimans
I keep dreaming of the summer season and BBQs starting again. That means choosing some delicious drinks for the occasion. We have friends who don’t drink alcohol and sometimes I prefer a soft drink. I also like something a bit different though! This is where Fentimans come in handy. The home of botanical brewing for amazing quality and flavour.
We were sent some Light Rose Lemonade and some Mandarin and Seville Orange Jigger to try! So refreshing. You can buy 12 x 275ml bottles for £16.49.
You can use these to make alcoholic or non-alcoholic cocktails, depending on your preference.
CBD Gummies from Alphagreen
As someone who suffers from aches and pains after a workout and can feel a bit anxious now and then (like many Mums), I was keen to try some CBD Gummies from Alphagreen.

Redefining SELFISH Book by Carolyn Hobdey
I’ve really tried to get back into reading recently and although I’ll never plough through as many as some, I know it’s doing me good!
So I was keen to include a book in this guide and one, which sounds like will help many Mums. Redefining Selfish As taken from the press release:
“Redefining SELFISH comes at an urgent time when women are reporting worsening levels of anxiety and growing mental health concerns, and are increasingly initiating divorce. Calls to domestic violence helplines are on the rise and, of course, the pandemic has had a massive impact. The S.E.L.F.I.S.H model created by Carolyn Hobdey guides the reader through how to give up feeling guilty about taking some time out, instead placing ourselves at the top of our ‘to do’ list and acknowledging the benefits to us and those around us of making ourselves ‘better’. Its purpose—and that of the whole Redefining SELFISH concept—is to encourage self-kindness, develop confidence and shift mindsets from harmful to helpful.”
