What sort of Mum is yours?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

If you’re lucky enough to still have your Mum around, then I’m sure that May 11 – Mother’s Day – will be highlighted on your calendar.

I regularly ‘have a bit of a rant’ about the over-commercialisation of Mother’s Day (and Father’s Day) – and am genuinely shocked by ads telling us to “buy Mum an ipad for Mothers Day – just $899″  or something equally as expensive.  $899 – seriously!

Having said that,  it does makes me feel a bit of a hypocrite to then spruke “Buy Note Couture for Mother’s Day”, but there’s lots of nice reasons to give some stationery to Mum,  (a) it’s personalised – which makes it super “Mum-special”;  (b) it’s helpful – Mums lead pretty busy lives, so anything that helps with organisation is heaven-sent;  (c) it lasts a while – 50 pages for a To Do List, 55 pages for Menu Planner, 20 Correspondence Cards and Envelopes – she’ll be using her stationery for a few months – and will think of you every time she does so; and (d) it’s not expensive.   :-)

There’s an amazing range of illustrations and designs to suit every Mum - fashionistas to foodies, shoe addicts to chocolate lovers, cat strokers to dog patters, coffee drinkers to wine o’clock ladies, horoscope followers to elegant name-and-address-only stylish Mums, even Mums who spend half their life taxiing their kids from one sports field to another (which is pretty much every Mum with kids under 18!) - it’s all covered.

So if you’d like to organise some Note Couture stationery for your Mum – or Mum-in-law, or Gran - or want to leave your partner a subtle note about how to find Note Couture online - you’ll need to make a diary note to place your order before Saturday 3 May so that I can make it for you and have it ready to be despatched Tuesday 6 May.  As always, I send via Aust Post Express, so you’ll receive within 1-2 days depending on where you live in Australia (or maybe a little longer if you’re out the “back of beyond’ .
