When I was younger I would have got really upset at receiving something for the house as a present, but no it thrills me to get something that I want! I also have found that the older I have got the more expensive my tastes have become! Below are The Mad House’s guide to great gifts for Mums.
Great gift ideas for Mums
There is no M&S magnolia range in this gift guide, oh no! For me anything from Aromatherapy Associates is a HUGE hit. They are luxurious, but also last. I am also a big fan of Liz Earle and swear by her Cleanse and Polish. We are a paraben free household as much as we can be, so I would be really happy with any hair product from Aveda. I love L’Occitane, particularly their fragrances. If you are stuck then why not try a Pamper Parcel (There are some great reviews from Penny and Chris) .
No way back when I would have been pretty peeved to receive something for the kitchen as a gift, but now they make my heart sing. On my list this year are Joseph Joseph 6 Piece Nest Storage, yes tuppleware, but it stacks and it beautiful and functional! I would also love to receive Joseph Joseph Tri Scale, scales that fold up and I can store away.
We received a Sage Tea Maker earlier in the year and I love it. It would be the perfect gift for any tea lover. The same goes for my Philips Airfryer or my Tefal OptiGrill both have been in my kitchen for well over a year. All are integral items in my kitchen used every week and always on the surfaces rather than in the cupboards.
Food and drink
What can I say, I am a tea monster and would love a Tea Tasters subscription from either Twinings or Teapigs. Post Tea have a great selection of teas and I have been delighted with the tea advent calendar that MadDad bought me. To go with all that tea, then any things from Bettys would make me smile. We are huge lovers of their Fat Rascals.
I adore stationery and this list would be really long, so the highlights for me would be anything from Bread and Jam (I adore their notebooks), a gift voucher for Papermash, ink and pens from Bureau Direct (oh to be one of their reviewers, I am so jealous of Being Mrs C)!
I love jewelry that is meaningful. I wear a watch everyday and also a pair of diamond earrings that MadDad bought me before the children came along. I also have a Links of London Sweetie Bracelet and have a few charms that each mean something special.
I recently was sent a Tree of Life personalised necklace from Merci Maman and it is beautiful. I have worn it all week and it has been comepted on every time I have worn it and more than that it is a beautiful meaningful people of jewllery that I can hold close to my heart and is inscribed with the speical people in my life.
I am so lucky to be able to giveaway a personalised Tree of Life Necklace (length of chain and metal up to the lucky winner) to one lucky reader. Even better this wonderful necklace can be yours before Christmas this year as the competition finished on 21st December and will be sent by next day delivery after you have confirmed all the details required on it.
