Yes, it’s that time of year again and if, like me, you are struggling for ideas before resorting to the inevitable bunch of flowers and box of chocolates, what about these for a few ideas?
The Breakfast in Bed Collection from La Cafetière is an unusual but very apt gift and if you happen to live at home or are visiting for the weekend then you could even present it as it is meant to be used, fully loaded, so to speak!
A little unashamed luxury. This stylish collection features a deep-sided bamboo tray, perfect for lazy Sunday mornings in bed, with an easy-clean waterproof surface. The set comes with a bamboo tray, a contemporary white stoneware teapot (2 cup/500ml capacity), 2 stackable mugs and a stackable sugar and milk jug. It’s also beautifully gift boxed. Perfect and not a flower in sight!
Is your mother a budding Delia or did she teach Jamie all that he knows (only kidding Jamie!)? If so, then what about a stylish cookbook stand? The lovely Alessa Cookbook Stand from Zack makes a great addition to any kitchen and is a great gift! Manufactured from high grade brushed stainless steel, it’s solid and stylish. It also folds up for easy storage when not in use.
Finally, we’ve mentioned them here before, but another super idea is Oliver Hemming’s award winning Spiceboy. A recent winner of the Red Dot Design Award and available in a variety of colours it’s a fun way to mix spices and grind them either individually or as a mixture. A great tool for spicing up a BBQ or meal with a custom herb mix. Your mum will love it!
