Mother’s Day is coming up soon and my expectations are always kept low to avoid disappointment. Last year I was very surprised as my grown-up son and daughter teamed up to buy me this lovely concrete bowl from Moth, Manchester. It really surprised me they had both communicated and organised it together (sorry children I should have more faith in you both).
However, they have now raised the bar very high for themselves, so here are some ideas for them… I mean you 😉
💝 Scented Hand Soap Trio £15. Had a really good experience of L’Occitane soap recently, so this or any of their soaps would be perfect in my books.
💝 I love studio pottery and have bought a few pieces from an artist Karin Findell who sells at my local tourist information centre in Buxton. You can order online via her Esty shop. Pieces are earthy and very tactile, many have a lovely heart motif, absolutely appropriate for Mother’s Day. You will get a sizeable piece for under £30, well worth a look.
💝 Enamel Vase Trio, aqua (other colours available) £28 okla.co.uk, there are more lovely items in this price range on their site too. They have a shop in Manchester’s Northern Quarter but you can also buy online. These vases are ethically made in India.
💝Annie Sloan Mini Project Paint Pack £29.95. If your mum has never tried a bit or furniture restoration this would be a fun gift.
💝 I’m not someone who likes things being made girly and pink just to appeal to women but this little V&A Hammer and Screwdriver Tool Set caught my eye as it was sooo practical and pretty. I can see it in my desk tidy for whenever I need an emergency hammer. Would it be classed as an offensive weapon if I carried it in my handbag 🤔. I saw it in a local shop (again in Buxton, Atticusboo) but can be purchased from a number of Amazon or Ebay sellers. £10
Hopefully I’ve given you some ideas 😘
