Mother's Day Gift Guide 2016

Sunday, 28 February 2016

Hola Señoritas!

Mother's Day is approaching! (Funny story, I once forgot to buy my Mum a Mother's Day card and she didn't talk to me for about a month. True story. Shan't be forgetting to buy one of those again.)
Cards are pretty easy, especially seen as you can't go wrong with one with something soppy on the front, because Mum's seem to love that kind of stuff, right? (I wouldn't know, I forget to buy them) - but gifts can be tough.
Last year I created a 'Gifts for the Impossible Mother' guide - for the Mum's that are difficult to buy for - This year I'm going to stick to a simple theme of 'Does She Like?' for a select few cute ideas.


Does she like... Animals?

If the answer to this is no, you should seriously consider taking her back to the Mum shop for repairs.

I swear it's a 'thing' that Mums have cotton balls and pads and anything similar hanging around the place - but you never actually ever see them use them - or is that just me?? To make the bags of cotton balls look that whole lot cuter, look at this super adorable bunny cotton tail ornament/cotton wool holder*! LOOK AT IT. It even has an Alice in Wonderland quote at the bottom for the literature lover Mums out there. You can find this little guy over on the IWOOT website, along with a whole range of other fun gifts that I am a little obsessed with... including a chimpanTEA infuser. It is just as great as it sounds, I promise you. *Waffle not included

Does she like... Stationery?

If you answered no to this, I am already seriously concerned. Who doesn't like stationery, I mean, really?!

Chroma Stationery is a great option for stationery lovers. You can buy notebooks, pencils, pens and pencil cases that are all fully customisable! Whether you simply get Mum embossed, or her favourite quote like I have chosen, you can make it personal and pretty - including choosing from a gorgeous range of colours!
The Treasured also do a gorgeous selection of stationery (see above ruler!) and homeware/gift ideas. I love little websites like these because you can guarantee you can't just stumble upon them on the high street.  


Does she like... Tea and Biscuits?

I can't even talk about if the answer to this is no. My answer back is no. Just no.

How about a little treat hamper? A few packs of biscuits, a variety of teas, a new mug and a teapot? She'll love popping open the basket and choosing which biscuits to indulge in and the perfect partner tea. My current favourites are Chocolate Orange Thins from Border Biscuits (my favourite brand ever since I pocketed a load during a meeting) and Clipper Tea Green Tea. I like to consider it a balanced diet.

I hope these three, although small, ideas helped spring some inspiration into your head!
As for me, well, I am going to get a card and attempt to find a pretty fruit bowl. Because, you know, that's how you spoil somebody on a budget ;) (Ooooh, 2017 idea already!)

What are you getting your Mums? Let me know!
