Mother's Day Gift Guide - Embrace your inner Lady of the Manor
This year I’ve decided to allocate a theme to my Mother’s Day gift guide. As some of you will be aware, there is a large part of me that is secretly really rather into a bit of full on English country house chintz. I must say I find it all very comforting, especially in these somewhat uncertain times. So, I’ve done you a little round up ranging from an arguably thrifty tin of loose tea (!) to an unquestionably expensive (but non the less exquisite) floral eiderdown.
Let’s face it, you can’t beat eating breakfast from a tray in bed wearing a Victorian blouse and stinking of lavender.
Ever since I spotted their paper napkins ‘Gien’ has been a brand on my watch list. This tray has all the right vintage vibes without being over the top.
Mustard yellow and pale grey with a dusty pink border. Say no more.
Picnics this summer won’t get chicer than with these Chatsworth plates.
You obviously need an eiderdown if you’re going to take this country house game seriously. This one with it’s coffee underside is surely the prettiest of them all.
You can never have enough Victorian inspired blouses. Fact.
Take a long soak in the bath and read a cherished novel for some serious relaxation – you can’t go wrong with lavender oil.
Or you could risk getting this soaked and take it into the bathroom instead. This has a permanent place on my coffee table at home.
You’ll get top wellness marks for spending an evening sticking actual printed photographs into an actual real life photo album.
Flowerbx sources flowers directly from their growers and sends them straight to your door. Flowers don’t get much better than a simple bouquet of Lily of the Valley.
