Mothers Day Idea's!

Are you ready?

Mothers day is fast approaching, are you ready for it? if you're like me, the answer will be no!

How do you know what gift to get for the special lady who brought you into the world? She's probably got most things already, and if you ever ask her what she'd like the reply is 'I don't know', leaving you desperately searching for inspiration in shops which all sell the same things, boring and mass produced, when you all want is a thoughtful gift, with a personal touch for a fantastic mum. After some searching, I have a few suggestions from some fabulous crafters to inspire you.

Fancy a bit of twinkle? Then these lights from Red Brick Glass by Wendy Jeavons will hit the mark! I love these purple ones (It's my favourite colour) but they are also available in blue, green, pink and clear.

Does your mum like stories? (I know I do! I love fairy tales). If so, then how about sending her this beautiful Alice in Wonderland Card? It is made by D'N'J Cards & Tags. Don't forget to check out their other items too!

For something a little more relaxing check out Oakwood Soaperie's shop on Folksy, or Website for these fabulous Luxury Cocoa Butter Bath Melts. She also has plenty of other scents, as well as scrumptious smelling soaps, bath bombs, face cleansing bars, bath milks, and even smellies for the boys! 

Is your mum a fan of jewellery as so many of us ladies are? If so check out Chicita Gimme That Thing. Beautiful wire wrapped rings and earrings  are abound here, so take a peek at these gorgeous accessories available in her etsy shop along with her luxurious hand knitted shawls, shrugs, ponchos and scarves.

If you fancy a more traditional Mothering Sunday card, check out Avaeli Cards selection, including cards with 3D butterflies, ribbons, buttons, and a variety of other textures and patterns. As these can be made to order, you will be certain to receive a card that's just right in your mum's favourite colours! With so many beautiful designs to choose from the hardest part is picking your favourite! I did!

These are all fantastic products, but remember, that's not all. There's plenty of talented people just waiting to produce a fantastic gift that your recipient will treasure. Take a little longer, do a little search, and find the perfect gift to show your mother you love her...
