As you are no doubt aware, it’s Mother’s Day on March 10th. Now, I’m sure, like me (ahem) you’ve already invited your mum to lunch and have bought her the perfect present. But if you haven’t, don’t panic, there are still seven days to go and we have some lovely ideas for you, which are sure to keep you in her good books.
Put a touch of cottage chic into her kitchen, with the Helmsley Kitchen Range, from Laura Ashley. The stoneware range includes a pretty jug, a set of three herb pots and a utensil holder, all with embossed detailing.
Enjoy afternoon tea together, with Sophie Allport‘s new fine bone china range, ‘Rose’. It includes jugs, mugs, tea cups, espresso cups, plates and a teapot. The pretty cotton fabric can be bought by the metre and is also available in a whole range of accessories, including napkins and a tea cosy. You can even buy your mum a nice, new ironing board cover…
Don’t worry if you couldn’t be bothered to bake a cake, let the aroma of lemon drizzle cake waft out of the kitchen, as you unwrap your shop bought offering, thanks to these Fragranced Kitchen Candles, from Cox & Cox. Choose from Lemon Drizzle Cake, Victoria Sponge and Apple Crumble. Delicious!
Or what about these graceful pouring bowls, from Pablo Blue? They have tactile dimples instead of a handle and can be used as a bowl or a jug. Gorgeous and practical. I’m tempted to keep them for myself.
