Mother's Day Gift Guide – The Home Edit

Monday, 23 February 2015

Mums really are a national treasure. Always there to give advice, a loan or even just a hug, what would we do without them? I am guilty of taking my Mum for granted and don’t show her often enough how much I really care, so every year I like to use Mothers Day as an opportunity to fix that, I try to pick a special gift that I know she will love. 

I recently found a lovely website called Country Living which has a fabulous selection of unusual gifts suitable for anyone in your life. The range includes beauty, fashion, homeware and furnishings but here are a couple of pieces I thought my Mum might really enjoy,

Isn’t this Votive Holder just stunning? I adore the shabby chic feel of the metal handle in the shape of a heart and the little crystal tea light holders, I keep mine on a Asian influenced side table but next time I have folk over for dinner, I plan to use it as a romantic centre piece – pretty! 

And look as this gorgeous bee inspired gift set. Isn’t it adorable?

First up a jar of golden Dorset Honey, full of natural goodness. Yum!!!!

And some Boot Polish made from Beeswax which is perfect for cleaning and protecting shoes, boots, bags , and leather and wood furniture – I love the gleam of a freshly polished dark wood table.

Have you heard of Propolis Salve – it’s made from a glue made by bees to make their hives water tight and disease free. It has anti fungal and antibacterial properties and has been used for centuries as s natural treatment for everything from cold sores, burns and every tumours, I swear by it and always have a tub in my bathroom cabinet.

Another product I am never without is a lip balm and this one is really special. Fragranced with Lemon and Ginger it tastes and smells unbelievable and it doesn’t just act as a barrier on the lips, it actually nourishes and heals them, leaving them plumped up and super hydrated. Mwoah x

But I saved the best till last. Aren’t these honey comb candles ADORABLE??? I can’t tell you about burn time or throw or any of that other important stuff cos to be honest – who could burn these???

If you’d like to order any of these gifts or to check out their whole range ( don’t miss the pet products), you can find the Country Living website here.

So what do you think about the first two items on my Mother Days Gift Shortlist? Will they make the cut? Keep tuned to find out x
