With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend in the US, I thought that I would share a few gift ideas that are unique and thoughtful. So whether or not you are celebrating that wonderful woman in your life, these gifts are sure to delight your loved one and make them feel truly special.
1) Alphabet Notecards from Architectural Watercolors - €4.64 each
These charmingly illustrated notecards are the perfect gift as they are so inexpensive yet unique and personal. I discovered this company a few months ago and immediately fell in love with these beautiful illustrations. I ordered both the ‘N’ and ‘F’ then had them framed to go on my wall at home. Everyone who comes into my home now wants to know where I got them - so I am happy to share this secret with you!
2) Elizabeth Scarlett Travel Pouches - £25 each
These chic travel pouches are so pretty and are well sized for a number of uses. I first discovered this brand after looking for an elegant bedspread and finding the perfect one with hand-embroidered pineapples. The designs are truly timeless and guaranteed to bring smiles.
3) Gisou - Honey Infused Hair Mask - €51
I only like to recommend products that I use and love - this mask is truly one of the best that I’ve ever used, taming unruly hair and giving you salon-finish locks. The key ingredient is honey, which contains a blend of minerals, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants. As a natural humectant, honey maintains the hair’s natural moisture balance, resulting in healthy, soft and stronger hair with a silky shine.
4) Teawrks Curated Organic Herbal Wellness Tea Discovery Subscription Box - From $23
I am a big fan of subscription box gifts - simply because it shows your friend or loved one that you are thinking of them not just today, but every month! I have often gifted magazine subscriptions, and now I am looking for more subscription based ideas for my friends and family. This organic herbal tea box is perfect for someone who enjoys tea and is looking to learn and discover more about it. You will receive four expertly-picked organic teas per month, chosen from around the world. What a lovely gift.
5) Halycon Days Enamel Bangle - $200
These enamel bangles by Halycon Days are classicaly chic and timeless whilst adding a touch of glamour to any outfit. Although marketed for women, I think they are suitable for everyone and would happily pair this with a simple outfit to add a pop of colour. This is an item that you will treasure for many years, and maybe even pass down through the generations.
