Being mum to 8 means Mother's Day is very much celebrated in our home .
My babies range from 1 to 15 years and so I love nothing more than when they make me their personalised gifts, their homemade cards , their little trinket boxes and tissue paper flowers of course are always welcome.
For me something personalised or made by them from them , means it was done with care and thought and not just something they've picked up off the shelf in a hurry , anyone can do that.
For the past few years when they have asked me what I want for Mother's Day, I've always told them nothing but they know me so well and what I really mean is I want them to make me something special or buy me something personalised .
I've never really been a fan of jewelry other than my Pandora's which I've recently started to acquire over the past 9 months from my husband , not much a fan of flowers or even boxes of chocolates. I've never had anywhere to put ornaments and only recently finalised my decorating to add frames and pictures to my walls so it's always been rather hard to buy for me if ever anyone needed.
The one thing however always welcome and has been proven to be my perfect given gift to me was that of a notebook or any sort of stationary to be honest.
Being a mum to so many and a blogger and home educator, I have always been very fond of books, notebooks, planners and diaries.
A couple of years ago , I literally begged my husband for the 'Mom's One Line A Day' memory book and absolutely fell in love , since then I seem to have fallen for anything that could possibly be as pretty and now Chroma Stationary have just crossed my social media scope .
I spotted their new line just in time for Mother's Day after seeing a post on their Twitter profile and immediately loved the idea .
You get to choose not only the style of notebook your wanting but you also get to choose the inside style , the embossing, colour, number of pages,and most of all you get to choose your personalised Message with Initials if you so wish .
Having received a small envelope through the letterbox , I immediately knew that this was my notebook just by the feel of it .
As I opened it up I was wowed at how beautifully wrapped they had prepared it for transport and even added a little touch of gratitude to my parcel.
I could clearly see that this was indeed sent with care and attention and they really did want to make sure you felt special receiving it .
I opened up the wrapping, carefully trying not to tear the seal (because I get rather OCD with things like this) and wanted to keep it in pristine condition and was absolutely besotted at the personalised Line stating 'Mum of 8' across the top in Silver Embossment along with my Initials on the bottom right hand corner .
It was just perfect , clear bright white , so fresh and so clean and fit perfectly with my dressing table to which it would stay for me to capture all my personal notes I would take before retreating to bed each night.
For just £8.50 - £9 you can either choose the Perfect bound or the Spiral bound Mother's Day Notebook and they're available in so many different styles and colour.
I was truly over whelmed with how pretty my new A5 notebook was.
I can see these notebooks not just perfect for Mothers days but also perfect for birthdays, Xmas , Valentine, in fact any special occasion where male or female would love to have something personalised and directed to themselves.
Not only do Chroma Stationary do personalised Notebooks but I have also now added to my wishlist the gorgeous Diaries they have available . They are perfect for my planning of my home schooling and blogging work and again you can personalise them to your own liking. £15 is an absolute bargain , you only need one diary a year right?
Chroma Stationary also supply A4 Notebooks, pens , pencils and pencil cases , all available for personalisation and if your still not sure what to buy that person you love for their special occasion, why not let them choose themselves and send them a gift voucher so they choose themselves.
Chroma Stationary are lovingly made in England and are of the highest quality .
I would highly recommend these notebooks to anyone who is inspired to capture their loving notes, memories or plans and it does not break the bank.
All of their Notebooks colours in their range is named after an important person or figure in Chroma Stationary's founder and designers lives, each colour reminds them and is named after a special person and each range is named after a memorable place.
Their belief is that colour triggers memories which I think personally is a beautiful thought , for me my favourite colour notebook would be purple for my wedding day .
Each Notebook is unique to the person it is personalised to.
If you could choose a Notebook, what colour would you choose and what memory does it bring to you?
