A Guide for Men buying Gifts for Women

Dear man in my life

Thank you so much for the Mother’s Day card and chocolates from the local shop, you obviously put a lot of thought into buying this gift, it is clear to see that you have been racking your brain for weeks and weeks. I know I am mega difficult to buy for because I want something that ‘means’ something. You have smashed it with the box of Maltesers, they hold so much meaning, I do love them after all, the fact that I am trying to lose weight for our holiday is irrelevant, I am sure that you thought about that too when you decided on the ultimate gift of a box of Maltesers. 

It also added extra meaning, when you ran to the shop on Mother’s Day to buy the card and wrote on it, in front of me, thank you for creating memories, you are wonderful!

Love you always and forever!

From the woman in your life…

Ps. Now, please don’t get me wrong, my list of job titles may make you think I am being a little bit sarcastic, I really do appreciate the Maltesers, but just one celebration, I hope to receive that gift with meaning, maybe one day, but until that day, I am truly thankful for all that I have, being a mum is the best job in the world and I wouldn’t change it for the world!

Next year I think I will just treat myself, to take the pressure of you darling, so if you could transfer me a few pennies that would mean the world!
