Mother's Day will soon be here and Truprint are offering a wonderful selection of personalised gifts that can make your Mum's day. I was invited to purchase some of their stuff ahead of time to see what was in their fabulous range so my Mum, Mother in Law and my Nan's are in for a treat this Mother's Day.I chose all my products from this range of 3D Animated Photo gifts.
I got some keyrings
I treated myself to a notebook
I purchased bookmarks for the Nan's and Great Nan's who will obviously want to see their gorgeous grandchildren when they are reading a book!
I also made one mistake – I thought I had ordered Mother's Day cards but when they arrived, they were actual postcards! Silly me! I must read stuff properly next time. They are still excellent though and I will give them for Mother's Day as they might look good in a frame
Overall, I was very impressed with the Truprint range and I will order from them again. Delivery was very quick and everything was well packaged when it arrived. I have a special offer below for Jo's Nursery readers where you can get a free Mother's day card but you need to be quick as the offer will be expiring soon!

Mother's Day this year has taken on a new meaning for me. On Monday, just before he went to bed, Thomas called me 'Mummy' for the first time. He is 16 months old. He like most children said 'dada' first at around six months old and a few months later, the odd 'mama' started coming out too. I have been encouraging him to say 'mummy' since.
This is my second Mother's Day. I always thought my first ever Mother's Day would be most significant but actually I think it is going to be this one. Thomas now knows who I am and that I will come and help/cuddle/support him whenever he needs me too.
Since becoming a Mummy, I have changed for the better. I appreciate the small things in life now. I have enjoyed every moment with Thomas from the first smile, the first tooth, first food, first steps, and even managed to enjoy the (horrendous) first haircut experience! Thomas is changing every day now at an alarming fast rate and I am enjoying every second of it.
This Mother's Day and every other day for that matter, I will get to cuddle and kiss my son and tell him how much he means to me. Some other Mummy's like Jennie from Edspire are not able to do that anymore with their child as they are shining stars in heaven looking down on us all. Because of this, I urge you this Mother's Day to enjoy being a mummy, enjoy being with your children and remember those Mummy's who are less fortunate than ourselves.

With my first Mother’s Day coming up this week, I jumped at the chance to try some Mother’s Day chocolate from Hotel Chocolat. I received The Jewellery Box which contains 10 chocolates in the following flavours, pralines in milk and dark chocolate, berry mousse and Billionaire Shortbread. The box also contains a mirror and two compartments and can be reused as a jewellery box afterwards.
On first impressions, I was very impressed with the jewellery box. It was very pretty and well made. I was slightly disappointed when I opened the box though as instead of lovely chocolate looking at me, I had boring brown paper wrapped chocolates instead. Once you opened these packages, you found the beautiful chocolates inside. I can see why they need to seal them up but the idea of a jewellery box in my opinion is for it to hold pretty things in and this when it was first opened did not. I enjoyed the berry mousse chocolates as it was refreshing and zingy. I also liked the Billionaire Shortbread as it was rich and worked perfectly the milk chocolate.
Many thanks to Beth at Jam and Cream PR and Hotel Chocolat for sending me the chocolates to review
