Wow I can’t believe March is almost over, already!
With Mothers’ Day round the corner, I have compiled some great finds. Flowers & Cards are becoming things of the past, try one of these or perhaps a combination of them all. Spoil her rotten. 🙂
Start with a hand crafted card..
Crystal Card Kits are a great new idea.
You’ve seen “painting by numbers” – they’ve taken this concept into the modern day and created “bling by numbers”.
Using the pick up pencil, simply lift up the flat-backed crystals and place them onto the adhesive card. They will instantly adhere. The result are sparkly, beautiful cards, available in different themes. Click on their website where you can see a Youtube video on how it works.
For the house proud mama…
Cotton Traders have a stunning range of homeware. Why not treat your mum to some nice bedding to give her that perfect night sleep.
Enjoy the easy luxury and blissfully soft sateen weave of their 200 thread count cotton, in a breathable weave that will keep mums cosy or cool at night, depending on the season. They have such a good range over on their website.
For the ‘free from’ mama..
CICIONI is the extraordinary new product revolutionising the fermented and free-from world, and a first of it’s kind of in the UK!
It is the first product in a whole new category called ‘Fermentino’ – the act of fermenting nuts with water and salt, adding a whole new flavour to your meals. You can get some more info on their website..
For the organised mama…

For the sentimental mama…
Consider Engravers Guild of London. With lockets slowly becoming a thing of the past, bring them back with a personalised message.
The scroll embellishment on the front of the locket pictured is carried out by hand, showcasing the skill of the craftsmanship and making a very special item. The form of the piece is exquisite, with the hinge seamlessly flowing into the shape of the heart, and the necklace is hand polished to a brilliant gleam.

For the reader..
If you want to buy one gift for your mum this Mother’s Day make it Voices Of Powerful Women. Zoe Sallis, best-selling author and mother to actor Danny Huston travelled around the world interviewing 40 of the world’s most powerul women, many of whom themselves are mothers from Nobel Peace prize winners, actors, humanitarians and politicians including. Her interviewees included Jane Fonda, Benazir Bhutto, Marion Cotillard, Martha Lane Fox, Paloma Picasso, Mairead Maguire, Judi Dench, Yoko Ono and Tracey Emin. It’s an empowering read.
For mums ‘taxi’..
Mums who spend a lot of time in their cars stand a lot to gain from a high quality, premium Dash Cam as it is no secret that female motorists are often victims of discrimination and road rage whilst on the roads. This product would also naturally suit tech-loving mums who are travelling with their families during school breaks, weekends away or over festive periods.
