Whether you’re a bewildered new Dad looking for a suitable gift for your Yummy Mummy’s first Mother’s day, or a seasoned veteran at this old game who’s running out of ideas for your Alpha-Mum: we’ve got you covered.
Alpha-Mum |’alfə|mʌm| Noun.
A mother who has raised her children with as much grace and poise as they would allow, and has now released them out into the big wide world. Often found watching her over her now fully grown children with a content satisfaction as their own offspring throw uncontrollable tantrums in supermarkets. Now a lady of leisure, the lesser-spotted Alpha-Mum loves nothing more than long, well deserved holidays and a crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
Yummy-Mummy |ˈjʌmi|ˈmʌmi| Noun.
This fresh-faced, beautiful mother is the envy of women everywhere. Always on the go and somehow always looking great, she appears to navigate the hectic world of parenting with ease. She can be spotted balancing one child on her hip, helping the other with their spelling practice and whipping up a highly nutritional supper all at once. The most common reaction to the Yummy-Mummy is: “How does she do it?”
Outdoor and Country’s helpful list of gift ideas for Mother’s day…
This beautiful Joules Scarf was made to be draped around the dainty neck of our Yummy-Mummies, easy to throw on with any outfit as she’s rushing out of the door for the school run, this trendy scarf will take any outfit from plain to pretty faster than our Yummy-Mummy can change a nappy (and that’s fast). For our classy Alpha-Mums, this Barbour Dress Tartan Scarf exudes the traditional elegance that she’s famous for.
An Alpha-Mum needs a purse that will not only look great, but is easily opened for when she’s treating her grandchildren. This luxury leather DuBarry Dunbrody purse features an easy to open press stud closure which will make her a firm family favourite. For the super-organised Yummy-Mummy, this sleek Barbour International Leather Purse boasts enough space for all of the family’s appointment cards.
Not even a rainstorm can stop our Yummy-Mummy from getting all of the jobs done, so make her the envy of the high street with this classic Telescopic Barbour Tartan Umbrella; easily portable and tucked away in her handbag ready for an unexpected shower. The Alpha-Mum has spent many a weekend in the rain cheering on sports teams in her time, so it’s only right that now she outwits the weather with this Hunter Bubble Umbrella (the umbrella shape of choice for the Queen herself don’t you know?)
When she’s off matriarch duties, our Alpha-Mum loves nothing more than pampering herself ready for the week ahead, so gift these beautifully comfortable Joules Freya Pyjama Bottoms so she can lounge in style. Since she’s always on her feet, make sure the Yummy-Mummy in your life feels like she’s standing on a cloud when she’s at home with these faux-fur lined Barbour Leigh Slippers.
Our Yummy-Mummies needs to have her hands free at all times so that she can easily carry shopping, take phone calls and most importantly keep hold of little hands, so this Barbour Summer Dress Tartan Cross Body Bag will keep her essentials close without compromising her day-to-day activities. A little bit of arm candy is a must have for the Alpha-Mum, this charming Barbour Tartan Tote Bag will perfectly complement any one of her elegant outfits.
No matter the gift you choose, you can be sure of one thing: Yummy-Mummies and Alpha-Mums alike are all partial to a bunch of flowers and breakfast in bed!
