Peace lilySpathiphyllum

Helping to remove harmful benzene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde toxins.

OrchidOrchidaceae

Loves loads of natural light and less water.

Quick Note: Even those these plants are considered non-poisonous for children, they could still pose a choking hazard or cause an upset stomach if ingested. It’s best to keep them out of reach of young children and watch for any fallen leaves.

@steph_dontbuyherflowers

When I was a new mum I got loads of flowers, gifts for the baby and much more but nothing really for me. Which was okay..All those sleepless nights, feeding times all you need is a pick me up.

Perfect me time, a stroll around the gallery on a Sunday afternoon followed by afternoon tea at the National Dining Rooms or a quick trip to the gallery shop for a treat.

Everyone needs a hug, right?

@UKMagicFreebies

Hop over to a company called Magic Freebies who are offering a free ‘hug-a-gram’ for those unfortunate kids who won’t be able to give their mum a cuddle of their own on Sunday.

Aimed at grown up kids the service offers a variety of ‘huggers’ of all shapes and sizes each with their own ‘hugging style’ to best suit their mum’s cuddling needs.

To apply for a hug-a-gram, select the hugger that best suits you and e-mail  freehugs@magicfreebiesuk.co.uk with a short story on why your mum especially deserves the ‘hug-a-gram’ service. With huggers in limited supply, the short story will be integral to who receives the service.
