Hotel Chocolat gifts for Mother's Day ~ Giveaway

Hotel Chocolat recently contacted me and asked if I'd like to give away something from their Mother's Day range of gifts to a deserving blogger. I could think of no-one more deserving than Anna from In The Playroom.

Anna has 3 children under 6, one of whom has Autism and global developmental delay, yet she still manages to blog and give advice and help to anyone who needs it. I have no idea where she finds the time - although I'm well aware she doesn't get much sleep! She never complains or moans and has so much patience for everyone, she's a star. Her boys are absolutely adorable with the cheekiest grins, but a little small yet to buy her anything for Mother's Day, so she gets my gift.

It was a hard choice to pick from all of the gifts available...


The Cocoa Juvenate Beauty Gifts look amazing and I can imagine the smell is divine.....


The Chocolate Hazlenut Spread would be a perfect thing to put on pancakes next Tuesday
 to really treat yourself....
 

The 'For My Mum' Pocket Selection of chocolates is a great gift. 
I'm hoping at least one of my children sees this (hint, hint)...


In the end I chose the H Box 'For My Mum' selection because it just looks so pretty and with chocolates including Salted Caramel Cheesecake and Strawberry & Rose Truffle, what's not to like?
I know Anna's boys go to bed at a decent hour, and her husband often works into the evening, so she can sit and enjoy these in peace and quiet.

Hotel Chocolat offered me the chance to have a H Box 'For My Mum' selection for myself, but I've had lots of nice things (mainly Lego) recently, so I've decided to give them away to one of my readers.

Entry is by rafflecopter below. The competition will end at midnight on Friday March 21st in order that the chocolates can be delivered by Hotel Chocolat in time for Mother's Day. The first question is mandatory and answering that as a comment on this post will open up additional tasks for extra entries into the competition.

Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mothers out there!
