FINALLY, a Mother’s Day gift

I’ve been a mother for nearly six years now and I’ve never received anything for Mother’s Day. I should scream and wail about this fact (and I’ve been known to), but Nathan is hopeless at gift buying and I accept this.

Last year was the worst year, as I expected to receive at least a token item that Amy had made for Mother’s Day, plus a little something from the school Mother’s Day stall – only Nathan didn’t hide the present well enough and Amy ate my chocolates and the dog ate the handmade necklace and card.

I may have been a little grumpy about this.

Okay, I was a lot grumpy and rather upset.


Amy has matured a lot in the last twelve months and while I’m not confident that leaving her alone with chocolates is a great idea, at least I know that the card is likely to make it home to me.

This year however, Ferrero Rocher offered to send me a Mother’s Day Hamper from their new online Boutique. Knowing that it was probably my only chance to get chocolate for Mother’s Day that I didn’t have to buy myself, I agreed.

My only complaint is that there aren’t enough of the white coconut-type chocolates in this hamper and that I was forced to share the mini ferreros with my children.

If your children are too little to make things and your husband is terrible at gift buying like mine, you can buy your own Ferrero Rocher Mother’s Day Hamper here.

I was not paid for this post, although I did receive the chocolates above for free to review. I can happily say that I am making my way through them as I type.

Happy mothers day.

You know, if you just HAPPENED to buy me some of those white Ferrero’s, then I could probably overlook last years mothers day clusterfuck. And the year before that was pretty shit too, if you recall.

Wait!, you’re not my mother. I’m sure Amy could be trusted with chocolate buying.

Veronica April 28, 2012 at 1:09 pm

Yes, I’m sure she could. Organise that please.

Hmmm – I’m laughing at the comments. My other half is the same. I buy my own b’day and Christmas presents these days. Otherwise I’ll get nothing. I do however get loads of mothers’ day treats from the girls and they try really hard to do everything for the day. Funnily enough he wasn’t so bad when we first got married …. he blames the kids. Hope you’re feeling better and the MS has gone 🙂

I do my own birthday present too!

I didn’t get mothers day gifts from my hubby for the same reason, but that doesn’t explain the lack of birthday and christmas gifts. Once the kids were in school I got gifts from the Cake Stall fund raiser and stuff they’d made in class. As they got older they bought real gifts which were lovely, they knew what I liked. books, cds dvds, a gold ring one year which I still wear.

I’m holding out for the “older” bit now, hehe.

You are such a nice Mummy sharing your hamper. I might have been tempted to hide it away to indulge in all by myself.

Veronica April 29, 2012 at 12:56 pm

I really didn’t have much choice, as they clung to me and whined. I managed to hide some of it at least.

I’d say that was a very well deserved gift, good on Ferrerro Rocher for sending them to a worthy mumma!

Once I received 164 individual Ferrerro’s in a shoe box for valentines MANY moons ago and I swear I was HEAVEN! Enjoy every last one of your delicious treats x

Veronica April 29, 2012 at 12:57 pm

I agree, that would be heaven! I am a BIG fan of delicious chocolates.

Dorothy @ Singular Insanity April 29, 2012 at 12:10 pm

How lovely! They are so yummy, especially to a nut freak like me… Mental note to contact Ferrero Rocher PR people 😉

Veronica April 29, 2012 at 12:58 pm

I adore them too.

Deb April 29, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Yum. For a big box of Ferrero Rocher, I’d damn well find a science angle to write about.
I’m glad you finally got something.

Yum and Heidi is deathly allergic to hazelnut so I would have to hide it and eat it while she is not around which means no sharing 😀
