Happy International Women's Day & Mother's Day Gift Ideas..

by - Sunday, March 08, 2015

Hey guys welcome back to another episode of Saiprojects cooking, today's blog is going to be about Mums. 
Either single, married, working-class, busy and all types of Mums around the world. By the way, Happy Mothers day in advance, here in the UK Mothers day is celebrated on Sunday 15th March 2015 so if you're also celebrating Mothers day anywhere around the world, I am using this medium to wish you a big "Happy Mothers day celebration", well done on being a mum, (it's a tough job), more grease to your elbow. :-)

Also lest I forget, it is "International Women's Day" today, it is  an annual event that celebrates women’s accomplishments and promotes global gender equality.

This year’s theme is ‘make it happen’ and aims to encourage effective action for advancing and recognising women. It focuses on women in different professional sectors; the arts, female-owned businesses, in senior leadership roles, and all aspects of working environments where gender parity has still not been achieved. So Happy Happy Happy International Women's day to all women around the world, and remember "Lets all make it happen" :-)

Happy International Women's Day!

As Mother's day fast approaches, alot of us are thinking of what to get our mums, wives, partners, and all mother's out there!

Here's a list of affordable gift items that you can get your hands on at really good value for money.

Google is your friend, do not be afraid to use it. You can easily search for Mother's day gift ideas and a series of searches will come up for you to view.

Firstly think about what you know your mum likes; for example I love writing and I love social media so its very easy for my husband to pick up a gift for me for Mother's day.

If your mum is not easily predictable, then not to worry here's a list of gifts you can lay your hands on, and I'm sure you'll thank me later.

Flowers, Jewellery and perfumes seem to be the most common gifts mums receive for mother's day, however why not surprise her with something different this time.

Here are some of my ideas for a perfect Mother's day gift :-)

-Personalised gifts:- they are the best, it creates memories in years to come. You need at least 3-5 working days to be able to get your gift on time for Mother's day


-Kitchen Utensils:- If you've noticed your mum's kitchen items are old and crying for help, why not surprise her with new sets of cutleries, pots/pans, kettles, food processors, coffee maker, microwaves or you can even change her cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and other major kitchen appliances if you can afford to like I said IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO lol. Don't shoot me here I know it seems big and sounds expensive but if you can buy your mum a perfume, take her out to dinner and buy her clothes all worth £150, well you can get cheaper Kitchen appliances as cheap as £29 which your mum can look back on in the next 5 years with a beautiful smile on her face.
