Catablog, an online directory of Australian and NZ blogs, has asked popular parenting bloggers what gifts your mum wants this Mother’s Day (10th May 2015). Here is the insider tips for those stuck on what to get Mum!

Catablog co-founder Janyne Moore wasn’t surprised by the bloggers’ answers. Moore said: “parenting bloggers strike well with mums and engage effectively with them, because motherhood is a blur of emotions and bloggers help them understand their feelings are real and normal.”

Catablog’s parent bloggers shared some inspiration for the best Mothers’ Day gift:

Karina Lane, The Laney Files:  “The gift of me-time is the best gift to receive. For once I won’t be pregnant or breastfeeding so I will be going to town this year.”

Rachel McDougall, Toilets Aren’t For Turtles: “The best Mother’s Day gift I received was a pendant with the names and birth dates of my kids on it. My husband designed it and then had it made using a 3-D printer.”

Christine Knight Thomas, Adventure Baby: “The best Mother’s Day gift I’ve ever received was when my husband booked me into a massage and then took my daughter and I out for lunch afterwards to a restaurant I was dying to try.”

Jessica King, Mama’s Vida Loca: “My husband bought me a selection of new release books to read and sent me on my way to tropical paradise (our favourite resort at Palm Cove).”

Bloggers also shared words of parenting wisdom:

Bec Allum, Thermo Bexta: “There is no way the depth of a mother’s love for her child can be described until you are privileged enough to experience it for yourself.”

Laura Marneros, Mizz Mummy:“Changing a nappy is similar to life – just when everything is fresh something will come along again instantly.”

Kate Parker, The Online Water Cooler: “Surviving a child’s tantrum would make a hostage negotiator proud.”

Karina Lane, The Laney Files: “If you take your children shopping one of them will always need to do a poo when you have a full trolley.”

Cat Brickell, Life Behind The Purple Doors: “Your children can survive without you, but don’t make them need to – make yourself a priority – your health, mental and physical, is important.”

Hayley Chetwynd, House Of Many Minions: “The way you parent today shapes the people your children will be tomorrow.”

Sarah Barrett, Creating Contentment: “Your children form you and make you the type of mother you are. We all parent differently because we all have different children.”
