Mother’s Day Gift Guide


It is definitely the thought that counts when it comes to gifts, but don’t we all love being spoiled from time to time? With Mother’s Day around the corner, I have compiled a list of lovely things to give (or if you are lucky, to receive!) for the special woman (or women) in your life. For an extra indulgent present I love Gucci’s 1955 bag (chic, but with a practical strap – because, hands-free) Sophie Billie Brahe’s decadent velvet jewellery box, Aurum + Grey’s delicate initial charm necklace (which you can add more letters to) or a lipstick from Hermes’s first makeup collection – the packaging is beyond beautiful. If your budget doesn’t stretch quite so far, remember a meaningful present doesn’t have to break the bank. Kiley Reid’s thought-provoking debut novel, Huskee’s sleek travel mug (I have this and always get asked where it is from) H&M’s scalloped gold vase, or a monogrammed soap and natural sea sponge for a soak in the bath, are all gorgeous and under £20. And you can never go wrong with a bottle of champagne or a bunch of flowers – FlowerBx is my favourite for simple yet striking bouquets. For me, I love Liberty’s whimsical print scarf, which I wouldn’t actually wear, but instead frame as a piece of art; or afternoon tea at Claridges – the ultimate treat (which is what I am going to organise for my mother when she is next visiting London.) However, considering my husband is very unlikely to read this, I am not holding out much hope for the scarf or a date at Claridges, but I am equally thrilled with a cup of tea in bed and homemade cards (is there anything sweeter than a messy card with childish writing?) I might just bookmark this list for my birthday instead!
