Happy Birthday Mum With Moonpigmoments

I wanted to make my mum's birthday extra special this year and when Moonpig stepped in to help I was very grateful. Thanks to Moonpig for gifting me these items. 

My mum is a diamond and she's had a bit of a tough year. Why is she so special? She's always been very laid back and non-judgmental, she never makes you feel guilty about anything and always offers unconditional love. She's never had a lot of money but has saved hard all her life. When my son was in university, she helped out by paying for his accommodation. She didn't have to do that but we were extremely grateful. That's the sort of person my mum is.

Just before Christmas last year my father died. He had multiple conditions including heart problems, breathing difficulties and more. In the end, he passed away in hospital. It was a tough time especially so being so close to Christmas. Then Covid19 happened and my mum due to her age and health decided to stay at home and not go out unless essential. When you are grieving and then have to isolate it can be hard. So my mum definitely needs a treat.

Moonpig, the gift company, for their campaign Moonpig Moments, gifted me a selection of goodies for my mum. Firstly I decided to make her a personalised card for her birthday this July. The personalised cards available on Moonpig are fun. You can upload photos and add your own message. I was really pleased with the personalised card above when it arrived. I ordered a large card (205cm by 290cm) which was about A4 size and priced at £5.99 I thought it was a good quality card and nice to be able to personalise it. It came quickly too and you have the option to either send it directly to the person or back to you with an envelope.

I was also sent a Yankee Candle in the fragrance Sea Air. I live by the sea in a little seaside town in South Wales and my mum loves it there. She visits when she can, so I thought she would love this candle... and I wasn't wrong. Yankee Candles are a very well known brand of candles and this one had a light fresh fragrance that reminds you of the seaside. The burn time is 65 to 75 hours. 

Now my mum isn't a big drinker but once every couple of weeks she will have a little tipple and vodka and cranberry juice is her favourite. So she really appreciated the gift of the Russian vodka and a special glass embossed in gold lettering with the message 'Mum, you're so lovely'.   That's one thing I like about Moonpig, the variety of gifts available, so you can combine more than one to make an extra special gift.

To complete her birthday I chose a beautiful bunch of birthday flowers for her called The Happy Birthday. A bright and cheery mix of cerise germini, pink roses, white lisianthus and scented oriental lilies, the mix of pink and white looked amazing in the vase and my mum was delighted! I particularly loved the colour of the roses. When you order flowers with Moonpig you get full tracking and a two-hour delivery window which is brilliant, so you can plan your day. They also have a five-day freshness guarantee which is good to know. 

They are also special as they come with a box of handmade chocolates too which came in a lovely decorated box.
