looking for a little inspiration. Want to do something nice for DPs first mothers day. Did anyone do anything especially nice for the first one?

That's lovely, how thoughtful smile

Some ideas:

- if she has a charm bracelet, you could get a charm made with a print of your baby's hand or foot (online options available but be quick!), or you could get a necklace pendant.

- on the same lines, there are lots of pottery places that will do an impression of the baby's hands and feet onto a mug, plaque, plate etc.

- book an outdoor family photoshoot

- flowers and chocolates are lovely

- an engagement ring grin

- breakfast in bed

Just a long lie-in with no baby! Maybe a card with hand or foot prints on. Breakfast in bed.

When my were babies, what I wanted more than anything on earth was sleep!!!!!

DH put a box of chocs in dd cot so when I went into get her they were there. Think I also got tea and toast and a magazine to read but that may have been year two!
I would say just a nice card and flowers would be lovely.
