The London Mummy Christmas Gift Guide : Women

Ok, women is quite general but this guide is packed so I am sure you will be able to find a present for your fussy sister or your mother in law who doesn’t need anything. I am really trying to buy all my Christmas Presents this year from small businesses – so if Amazon is your thing – this may not be your bag, but I urge you – please just have a look. When you buy from a small business, there is actually someone at the end who sees your order and you make a real difference to!


Melamine Camel Tray from Aurina 

If you love a simple animal print, you will love Aurina’s collection. I particularly like her lobsters and camels and the fact that it is melamine – nice prints whilst also being smash proud!

Black Pom Pom Scarf from Raindrops & Roses 

I love the eager gated size of the pom noms and the simplicity of one colour. When all around you is patterned, logo’s and multicoloured, it’s a delight to see a basic that will go with everything!
