10 Ideas For Mother's Day
So, Mother’s Day. A moment for us to pause and celebrate the ladies who made us or be celebrated if you happen to have popped a couple out yourself.
If you’re a mum, stick this list under the nose of someone doing the gifting. If you want to thank one, go ahead and say it with a biscuit tin shaped like a carousel that plays La Traviata. No really. It’s my favourite thing on the list.
Haute Bohemians by Miguel Flores-Vianna, £45
This book is at the very top of my current wish list. Full of incredible, inspiring interiors.
Mariage Frères Earl Grey French Blue Tea Bags, £15.95
I’m a long term fan of this Paris brand. I’ve got my parents hooked as well. Muslin cloth tea bags adding a little bit of pleasure to your morning.
Appleyard London Olive Tree, £30.99
Sure you can send flowers and very lovely they are too but what about thinking a bit out of the box and sending and olive tree. Olive trees are also quite a good choice if you’ve done something to piss your mother off recently!
Fortnum & Mason Merry Go Round Musical Biscuit Tin, £25
Hands down favourite on the list is the biscuit tin from Fortnum and Mason. A tin shaped like a carousel full of biscuits that plays La Traviata. Could there be a more perfect gift? I think not.
Bjork & Berries Dark Rain Hand Cream, £16
I am a sucker for some great packaging. And this hand cream happens to give one soft, silky mitts too.
Milk Decoration Years Subscription (4 issues), £28.96
This super stylish French interiors mag is bursting with inspiration for your home. I love giving subscriptions as gifts – literally the gift that keeps on giving every month.
Slip Pure Silk Sleep Mask, £45
Mother’s Day is all about spoiling people. The opportunity to sleep in is luxury enough. Then go and add a silk mask and it doesn’t get much dreamier.
Charli London Mink Cashmere Travel Wrap, £129 reduced to £103.20
Who doesn’t want a big cashmere blanket doubled as a ‘travel wrap’!? Swaddle me in it.
& Other Stories Pointed Mule Pumps, £79
A bit Balenciaga/The Row for those who don’t have a couple ‘o’ grand for shoes. Loving these chucked on with a pair of jeans.
Liberty London Five Minutes Peace Beauty Kit, £125
Ultimate mothers day treat. Can’t go wrong here.
