Yes, we may have just had Easter and now Mother’s Day is sneaking up on us – less than a month away (Sunday 10th May)!
We all know how important and special our mums are and how we may have not always appreciated them as much as we could have. This year, we are getting organised, thinking about it now and going the extra mile for a unique mother’s day present. We are thinking about something a bit more imaginative than a box of choccies or bunch of flowers – something that she will love and can also be used and remembered beyond Mother’s day itself. And, let’s face it, something us mums can also hint to our husbands, partners, children that we would quite like too!
1. Practical Bag (for parents)
Nova Harley Luxury Baby Changing Bags
These are designer diaper bags that bring the catwalks of the major fashion capitals back to stylish mothers and fathers. Their range of beautiful bags are designed in such a way as to not forget any of your child’s essential needs and with the removable interiors allowing it to be converted to a fashion bag in seconds. They have quality leather and faux leather options cater for every budget and the superior craftsmanship will ensure that your Nova Harley will last well beyond the maternity phase.
These are beautiful high quality handbags that mums can use as everyday handbag, laptop bag, overnight bag or with the nappy bag insert as a nappy bag.
So great to see a nappy bag that doesn’t look like one – and dad can use it too!
These bags are available to buy from www.boutiquebrands.com.au
2. Everyday Essential Travel Mug for Mum
