For those of us in the UK, Mother's Day is this month (Sunday 26th to be precise) so to help you avoid the supermarket when shopping for your mum, grandma, or indeed, any significant female figure in your life, I've put together my edit of thoughtful gifts, handmade by small businesses in the UK.
First up, and I promise, the only entry from our own product range, is our 'Mum Puns' plant marker set! For green fingered mums, each wooden plant marker from this set of 6 is engraved with amusing (some may even say witty!) mum-puns. Including such gems as, "Mum, you did a grape job raisin me", and available in both 'Mum' and 'Mummy' variations, you also have the option to add in a personalised engraved tag and your choice of organic seeds from the lovely Tamar Organics. Find them here
Also available for Grandma's too here.
Next up we have this lovely print from Paper Joy, I just love the colours! The print can be personalised for Mums, Grandmas, Aunties etc and you can add your name too. So sweet and will last much longer than a real bunch of blooms! Find it here
For those lovely grandma's out there, how about this personalised tea cosy from Milly & Pip - with a choice of two colour ways and your own wording on the front, this is a present that I'm sure would be really appreciated and used time and time again. Shop for it here.
Next in this edit we have this beautiful locket from Bish Bosh Becca - I think this would make a great gift to mum on her first Mother's Day - new dads take note! Available from the website here
Or for something completely different - how about these lovely butterfly wall stickers from Chameleon Wall Art - made in Oxfordshire by Jane Street, these are part of a huge range of wall art - I personally love the Mother and Baby Penguin! Find them on their website here
I couldn't decide which of Casa Lola's Designs to feature in this edit, there were several which had such lovely sentiments for Mother's Day! But I decided upon this one - I think it really sums up the role of a mother! Buy it here
Is your mum a crafter - perhaps she'd like this lovely cross stitch kit from Hannah Hand Makes for Mother's Day? Or, if you are feeling so inspired (and dedicated!), you could stitch it yourself and give it as a finished piece for her to hang! Find them here
And finally, for a gift that will no doubt be treasured for years to come, I've included this lovely personalised lavender pillow from Elm Tree Studio - all you need to do is find that perfect snapshot and send it over to Kirsty - sorted! Order one here
I hope you've found something to treat your lovely mums with later this month, no need to make a last minute dash to Tesco now!!
