7 Kick-Ass Slogan Buys For Mums

I love a slogan tee. I know they’re not for everyone, but I’ve always loved them – when I was a teen, I had one of those FCUK tops and thought it was the bee’s knees. When I was a student, two of my friends made t-shirts with my name on them in gold sequins and they wore them at my birthday drinks (it was topical – remember when Madonna wore the Britney and Kylie t-shirts onstage?)

I’m no different now, and I’m a bit obsessed with the range of slogan products available for parents. Here are some of my favourites…


1. Selfish Mother X The Bright Company Mama Jyms, £48 – This is a collaboration made in heaven, with two of my favourite brands joining forces. £10 from the sale of these TBC x Selfish Mother PJs goes to Wateraid, who do amazing work saving and transforming lives in 37 countries around the world, enabling access to clean water and offering much-needed hygiene advice.

2. Parent Apparel School’s Out vest, £20 – School’s out! For! Summer! Well, it’s very nearly out for all of us parents with school-age kids, and this vest is surely the best way to celebrate? One to wear on the last day of term (and actually every day of the school holidays).

3. Selfish Mother ‘Since’ tee, £20 – I LOVE these tees, with the year you became a mum on them, but if you want one, you’d better hurry as they’re being discontinued and they’re currently in the FMLY Store sample sale. £5 from the sale of this tee goes to Starlight, who grant wishes to seriously and terminally ill children and entertains over half a million children every year in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.

4. Jem + Bea MAMA clutch, £45 (available in late August – pre-order now) – this leather embossed clutch can be used for nappies and wipes…. or your lippy and phone on a night out. What’s not to love?

5. Alphabet Bags No Rest For The With Kid bag, £20 – This comes in a clutch/make up bag size too, but I love this canvas bag, which is perfect for filling with water, snacks, jumpers and a brolly (all the British summer essentials, right?) and slinging it on your shoulder before heading out for the day with kiddos.

6. Mére Soeur Rasing The Future tee, £23 – isn’t this cool? Because we are, literally, raising the future, and that makes the wearer of this tee a very special person, in my eyes.

7. Tease and Totes Girl Power tees, £28 for adult tee, £18 for kids’ tee – Twinning with your child (girl or boy) with a feminist message is the way to go, if you ask me. £5 from the kids’ tee and £10 from the adult tee goes to Worldreader to help them continue their incredible work, providing books to kids who can’t afford them.

Which is your favourite?

    I had one of those “FCUK me” t shirts and felt extremely grown up in it… it was probably hideous!

    Nowadays I am admittedly less keen on a slogan but I do have a couple of the Selfish Mother “Mother” tshirts. I am always tempted by Bright Company PJs so will have to have a look at those.

      Ha I remember the storm the FCUK Tees caused when they came out! Yes try the MAMA JYMS, I am basically living in mine after 6pm EVERY DAY.

    I also had a FCUK tshirts, felt like the dogs bollocks in it! I have a couple of these tees and especially love twinning the ‘girl power’ one with E… desperate for ‘raising the future’ to go back in stock along with ‘the future’ tees for the kids! I’m quite sold on the logo tee situation, evidently….

      I know no one reads Faulkner any more, but what he have here is a Snopes running for high office.Uh,no. Flem Snopes was impotent. Palin is more Drusilla from “The Unvanquished”. Stick to reading Updike.

    I really like the Mama clutch bag! xx

    I feel like I should get the ‘school’s out’ one as a warning to other people! My partner said I ‘had an edge in my voice’ this morning. I told him it was called THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS.

  10. July 18, 2016 / 11:49 am

    These are ace! I love the ‘Since’ tees, the Girl Power ones and the Mere Soeur collection as well. But I don’t have any yet. Which to choose…?

  11. July 18, 2016 / 10:14 pm

    do love those Mama PJ’s!

  12. July 19, 2016 / 10:03 pm

    THANKS SO MUCH lovely Alison, I love all of these! No REST FOR THE WITH KID makes me smile every time I see it. x

  13. July 21, 2016 / 5:45 pm

    Literally can’t get enough of a slogan. If I could wear one every single day, I would. No Rest for the With Kid and Gin and on it have got to be two of the best rephrases EVA!!

    I’ve got the get the PJ’s asap though….

  14. July 26, 2016 / 8:32 pm

    I’ve really never been into wearing slogans but I think I’m starting to come around. These are pretty cool.

  15. August 5, 2016 / 11:02 pm

    Ooh I have a Mother t-shirt from Selfish Mother but hadn’t seen the Since… one – I love that one! May have to get that one 🙂

    I remember my grey FCUK t shirt well and how I used to avoid wearing it in my dad’s company!!

    My favourite current t shirt simply says “All I want to do is drink wine and save animals” I love it. My daughter has one that says “my best friend has paws.”

    Love a slogan t shirt and would kill to have a Mother jumper – I see them around and they look so fantastic.

    I’d forgotten all about the FCUK t-shirt I had! I’ve seen some great slogan t-shirts lately and the kids have some pretty cool ones too!
