Our witty framed family print makes the perfect gift for new parents, experienced parents, siblings and friends - whether it's for a birthday, christening, Christmas, Mother's Day. Touchingly, it is also a popular gift for newly adopting families, which makes us very proud!

Written by our award-winning poet Joanna Miller, this A6 poem captures the fun times, the not so fun times(!) and the unrivalled bond we share with our families.

Whether it's relying, crying or a little white lying, everyone will recognise the experiences described in 'What is a Family?'

What is a Family?

It’s sharing, comparing, bonding & caring

It’s hugging & squeezing, talking & teasing

It’s praising & knowing, belonging & growing

It’s guiding, providing, trusting, confiding

It’s loving & kissing, nurturing, missing

It’s working & playing, treating & paying

It’s arguing, fighting & often delighting

It’s visiting, hosting & Sunday roasting

It’s relaxing & boring, most reassuring

It’s coaxing & charming, appeasing & calming

It’s waiting, debating, fulfilling, elating

It’s needing & feeding & tactful conceding

It’s driving, conniving, learning & thriving

It’s holding & nursing, worrying, cursing

It’s stressing, confessing & making a messing

It’s loaning & moaning, helping & phoning

It’s bickering, laughing, bedding & bathing

It’s listening, coping, planning & hoping

It’s relying, crying, a little white lying

It’s forgiving & mending, liking, depending

That’s what makes a family!
