Mother’s Day is creeping up on us and my husband is now starting to drop subtle hints about what I would like. All the shops are now filled with flowers, chocolate, bubble bath, wine etc but I like to think outside the box and I prefer a quirky little gift that has thought, meaning and a bt of fun behind it.
I used to love saving up my pocket money as a child to save up for gifts for my family; I think it’s important to teach your children the value of money and whilst they save up hard for things they want that they also should be willing to splash out a little on their nearest and dearest. With this in mind I have compiled a gift guide for pocket money kids with a
little lot of help from Charlie as he said that I would like all of these (and probably him!) and the best part of the ones featured here? They’re all under £10 at Hawkins Bazaar! Clockwise (starting top left)
1) Fossil Dinosaur Poo Dig Kit (£8.00)
I think kids would find this absolutely hilarious to buy for their Mom – I know Charlie would love this and I’d actually love to “dig” with him. Charlie + poo = hysterical! Remember the Dinosaur who Pooped The Past…?!
2) Terrible Prank Kit (£4.99)
I am a bit of a kid at heart and would love playing pranks on my husband with Charlie. A great affordable gift that a young child would definitely love to buy!!!
3) Coin Counting Piggy Bank (£4.98)
We currently have an old sweet jar for saving our loose change and it can be quite a laborious task counting it out to change into notes so this would be a fab gift to help speed up the process whilst looking rather cute. I think it’d also help out with Charlie’s math skills so a present for us all.
4) Cookie Monster Mug (£7.00)
I like my own mug that only I use and as a fan of Sesame Street (look at the blog name!) I think the Cookie Monster mug would be fantastic. A mug is always a great gift as it’s always going to get used. It’s a bit more for kids to buy but with three of them they could all club together.
This is my absolute favourite – and is only £3.99! It’s a cute little dog tin with Boo who is the cutest dog in the world. My heart wants to explode looking at his beautiful little face. I desperately need this in my life!!!! There is also a My Little Pony one which is a bit more expensive but just as gorgeous.
As you may have guessed I don’t go in for the stereotypical “Mum” presents. Which one would you choose?
