Personalised Gift ideas - Don't forget Mother's day is on 3rd April!

I like to try and give personalised gifts to my family, I have spent hours searching online for presents. Below are a few of my favourites.
If you have any that you think that I could mention please let me know!

Name a Rose
I have just bought this for a very close friend who lost her amazing husband last year, he was very special to me and it is coming up to what would have been his Birthday, their anniversary and also her Birthday all within the space of a week. I thought that by naming a rose after him would be a lovely way to remember him by and to let them know that I am thinking about him often. The gift contains seeds, information on how to grow the seeds, you can send the registry card with your chosen name, you will then get a certificate with the name you have chosen a few days later.

Dear Mum from You to Me
I bought this as a gift for my Mum for Christmas, there are so many stories parents have to share but unless they keep a diary they are often forgotten or not passed on from generation to generation, I thought this was a lovely way to hear about my mum's childhood and special memories about our childhood which could be forgotten. My mum was really touched by this present, you can also get it for Grandparents, Fathers, and friends.

Heat Sensitive Photo Mug
I bought my sisters for Christmas last year what they thought was a plain black mug, we were all sat together and they all thanked me I could tell they were all thinking 'why on earth has she bought me a plain black mug'.
I then went into the kitchen and poured boiling water into the mug and a photo of Tillie appeared and there was a personalised message on the other side of the mug - they were all really touched by the gift and love it!
They arrived in a plain cardboard box, just seeing the surprise on my sisters faces was worth every penny.
On sale now for only £7.50 http://www.printster.co.uk/personalised-mugs-coasters-1/heat-sensitive-photo-mug-8.html

Personalised Cards
I always send personalised cards and tend to use http://www.moonpig.com/uk/ or http://www.marksandspencerpersonalised.com/ I think these are so special and also very reasonable often much cheaper than what you find in a card shop. It works out that they cost approximately £2.98 plus postage which in total cost your £3.48 all from the comfort of your own home. Fantastic value for money!
Delivery is also very fast and if ordered by 2pm should arrive next working day all being well.

Personalised Books
I bought one of these for Tillie's first Birthday, I think it is a lovely way to mark a special occasion by adding photographs and personalising it with your child's name and a friend's name, there are a wide range of good quality books available, prices start at £10

Personalised Whisky
http://www.scotchgift.com/ This is a fantastic idea if you know someone who is a keen whisky drinker and you want to send a gift that is a little bit special - you can design your own label or write down any ideas you have, the label deisgned then emailed for your approval before being posted a couple of days later. The whisky itself is very pleasant. I bought a bottle for a colleague's 60th Birthday which went down a treat! Prices start from £30

"Your baby has Laryngomalacia"!!!????

I will explain a little about my labour, maybe a detailed explanation might go up in the future but lets put it like this, it was not nice and after suffering from an Irritable Uterus throughout my pregnancy followed by a 42 hour labour and a scary ending but I got the beautiful Tillie Bean so was worth every second! Basically the cord was wrapped around her neck twice and right round her body. She had the hiccups so much during pregnancy and I am wondering if this does have a connection to the problem which was about to be revealed!

I remember a few nights after Tillie was born hearing a strange noises when she was breathing, I had to stay in hospital for a few nights as I needed a blood transfusion, I buzzed the nurse to check about her breathing but was told 'it is just mucous on her lungs it is very common it won't last long'.
Even as a new mum I thought that this wasn't the case, but who was I to argue.
This 'mucous' was getting louder and louder and by …

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

We decided that we would go to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park http://www.yorkshirewildlifepark.net/ Today with it being so sunny outside.
We told Tillie we were going to see some animals, I love the way she repeats everything we say now, she managed to stay awake during the car journey and the whole way round the park.
She was more interested in the cat that was sunbathing near the entrance, I didn't think she was going to move as she kept saying "hewwo cat miaowww".
She liked the Meercats and the play area is near the entrance so she was quite happily swinging away looking at the horses.
It is a nice place to go, I wouldn't say that you could spend a whole day there as there isn't a lot to do but for under 5's it is ideal. They can run around, go and pat the sheep and goats, walk through the Lemur park and get up close to the Wallabies.
The food there isn't the best and is very expensive for 2xsausage chips and beans and two soft drinks it came to £15.85!!!…

Kid's do the funniest things!

One of our elderly customers knitted Tillie a skirt, it was very kind but not something that I would put Tillie in. Plus is was very small, when I was presented with this skirt my first thought was "oh no she is going to see how tiny it is compared to my jumbo baby and there is no way am I ever going to let her wear that".

But being polite and I really was touched that she had taken time to knit this for us that I passed the skirt to Tillie who put it straight on her head and posed.....

Luckily the customer found this highly amusing along with everyone else who was having lunch in our pub that day!
