So mother's day is coming up (March 14th in the UK) and I spent ages browsing for a sweet gift yesterday. My mum is a bit of a nightmare to buy for, she has everything and she's vegan, doesn't drink alcohol/caffeine, so food and drinks are hopeless. Tough call!
I have a million ideas for other people though (isn't that always the way), so I thought I'd share some of the nice stuff I found.
btw you're never going to see me doing a father's day edition, because buying for dads is totally impossible.
Super slick teapots and cups from Bodum. You could throw in a selection of nice black/green/white teas too.
Scented candles from English Eccentrics.
Tapestry kits by Emily Peacock.
Cashmere socks are amazing, Brora are the go-to people for cashmere in general.
Baileys have lots of pretty bits for the home.
Since getting my Filofax, I've been raving about them to anyone who'll listen. It's the perfect organiser!
Beautiful personalised note cards from Rifle Paper co.
Laura Mercier body stuff. This smells incredible, it's a struggle to not eat it.
Bracelets from Plumo.
Gloves from Dents.
Painted plates by Nathalie Lete for Anthropologie.
Or you could just bake something amazing! The pictures above are from lomopony.
Some epic recipes: chocolate fudge cake, sponge cake with raspberry and mascarpone, four nut chocolate brownies, maple walnut cake, Austrian coffee and walnut cake, chocolate chip ginger nuts, chocolate dipped cherry cake and rainbow cake!!!
If you're all sorted (lucky you) what are you buying for your mummy?
