How can January drag on forever and February be over before I could say ‘another celebration’. This month (Sunday 11th March) is Mothers Day. I actually think this is a ploy to cause more stress to husbands who have only just got over Valentine’s day and now they have to buy something on behalf of the kids (if the kids are under 10!)
Handpicked by Kate works directly with a collection of boutique, high quality and unique brands to bring you a range of exquisite homeware pieces and beautiful gifts. Kate’s desire is to provide an extra platform for these superb brands which have caught her eye along the way. (A girl after my own heart – this is my mission for TLM Edit!)
Below is a gorgeous selection of possibilities that Kate has compiled (and I added a few things that I really liked – there was so much choice on her website!)
So have a peruse, take your pick and press forward!
If they understandably aren’t so willing give them a break and buy something for your own mother or a special mother figure in your own life.
Thank you Kate – take it away…
