Mothers Day, a day where you can thank the significant women in your life for all they have done and given for you. So, if you'd like some inspiration beyond some chocolates and flowers (VERY welcome gifts fyi!), I've pulled together some fabulous gifts from the Small Business community that I think others would like.
1. A Year of You - Self Care from £17.00
A Year of Dates is a business which I love! I bought a box as a gift to my husband for our wedding anniversary, and absolutely love the premise behind this. At a point in time where self care is so important, as everything else becomes more, more, more, giving the gift of self care is simply wonderful, and will certainly be appreciated by a loved one!
2. Ten Things I Love About Mum Print £23.00
All too often we don't tell those we love just why we think they're so awesome, so why don't take this opportunity to tell your Mum why you think she's the best, and she'll have constant reminder to make her smile just when she needs it (because we all need to be told!)
3. Grow Your Own Lavender Shortbread Kit £19.95
Does your mum have green fingers! How about a gift of some lavender seeds to grow (beautiful fragrance and the bees love it too!), and then a kit to use the lavender to make your own shortbread (delicious!).
4. Calligraphy Kit & Online Workshop £35
Would your mum like a new hobbie!? How fabulous would this be, to learn how to create beautiful works of art by learning how to master calligraphy. (I think I'll be treating myself to this!).
5. MAMA Makeup Bag £10.00
Perfect for a handbag, to keep all the important lotions and potions together. Can be customised to her favourite colour, including a sparkly glitter!
6. Family Keepsake Name Necklace £115.00
A stunning sterling silver necklace, which is personalised with the names of her loved ones. An amazingly special gift, which will be treasured for many more years.
7. Personalised Pet Portrait £99.00
Does your mum also have a furry friend!? They all hold a very special place in their hearts, so a beautiful portrait by the very talented Ros, would be a phenomenal gift.
8. Fingerprint Heart Necklace £125.00
Such a cute and personal gift, and a lovely take on handprint jewellery. Can be in either sterling silver or 9ct gold, so a very precious treat, to be kept close to her heart.
9. Rose infused Pink Gin £36.99
Gin! Need I say anymore!!
Except ... it is also infused with collagen!! (not suitable for vegetarians)
10. Crystal Intention Candle £36.00
I am a great lover of candles, each room in my home has a beautifully fragranced candle which I think really adds to my home. These candles are offered in a several scents, including Orange Amber which would be my favourite.
Hope these ideas give you some inspiration, and you can treat your loved one to something really special this mothers day.
Love and hugs
