You know how when you’re a new mum and everyone gives you lovely things and sends beautiful gifts and you feel great and, sure, labour was iffy, but you’re not really sure what everyone was banging on about because this mum caper isn’t so bad after all? Well, cut to three years down the track when your baby won’t sit in the pram anymore, your house has been a mess for 917 days, and you’ve forgotten the last time you slept more than four hours straight.
Safe to say, life doesn’t look so peachy.
And it’s an outlook that I, my mum, and every other mum out there absolutely understands—but we can’t sit you down for a cuppa, chat for two hours, tidy your lounge room, and mind the kids while you have a bath, because we’re knee deep in our own world of sleepless, messy pain too. Sigh.
What we can do, however, is send you a sweet little gift pack that shows we’re here, we understand, and we’re thinking of you every single day. Here are a few of my favourite websites that specialise in awesome gift boxes for mums. Check them out in the slideshow.
