Every year the boys buy me gifts from the Mother’s Day stall at their school. Jason gives them some cash (the richer boys use their pocket money) and they each choose a small gift. It amuses me to see what they have personally selected.
Son #1, without fail, buys me something hygiene or grooming related. Think soap, face washers, emery boards…you get the picture. I’m not sure if he’s giving me subtle hints to lift my game. If he gets me deodorant, I’m going to really worry.
I suspect Son #2 buys me what he would like to receive as it always involves chocolates or sweets. He’s a bit of a gourmand and he knows I will share my chocolates with him. Luckily, the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, as I love sweets.
Son #3 is still untested. This will be his first year that he chooses something and I’m just dying to know what he will buy me. That is truly the magic of Mother’s Day for me, especially while the boys are still young.
The one Mother’s Day gift I always ask for is “Peace and no fighting.” I’m hoping this year will be the year they can deliver!

And if it happens this year, an interiors magazine subscription from Magshop (hint to Jason) will be the perfect partner for the occasion (plus endless cups of tea and coffee as I put my feet up)!
I had a quick look at the magazines on offer at Magshop online and was excited at how varied the interiors titles were. Not only are there the standards like Australian House & Garden and Belle, but you can also subscribe to smaller titles such as Queensland Homes or purchase overseas mags like Elle Décor USA. What a great Mother’s Day gift for a house and garden junkie!
