Feeling uninspired for gifts for your wee Mum this year? Here are some of my faves this Christmas…
It can be hard to find smaller, stocking filler type gifts which won’t be destined for landfill as soon as the Christmas tree is down. Luckily our brand new Gillian Kyle fine bone china teabag tidies fit the bill rather well. Just the kind of combination of fun, nostalgia and functionality that your Mum would approve of!
Or turn the tables for 2015 and encourage your Mum to eat her greens for a change. I love this fun veggie growing kit from Plant-N-Grow . A lovely, eco idea for a wee extra gift.
Add some glamour to her tea-break with our glitzy, limited edition gold Scottish Breakfast mug . These will all be gone before Christmas, never to be repeated, so make sure you (or your Mum) collect one while you can.
If you have a bit more to spend this lovely Sargasso clutch with quilted detailing by Katherine Emtage really stands out from the profusion of Harris Tweed products out there at the moment. Fantastic colour too!
Does you Mum like biscuits? Silly question, everyone likes biscuits. So maybe she might like one of our shiny new Tunnock’s biscuit plates? A sure-fire way to impress her pals when they pop round for coffee.
This beautiful South scarf By Helen Ruth depicts wild geese flying South for the winter, in a flurry of icy colours. Its wonderfully large giving lots of great options for wearing, and feels very luxurious with its hand-rolled hem.
One of our classic designs, this Caramel Wafer apron adds a bit of cheer to all kitchen activities. And even if she’s a ‘can’t cook, won’t cook’ kinda gal it will look great hanging up in the kitchen for decoration.
My mum loves a bit of quirky jewellery, so I was excited when I came across this understated and unusual gold and silver pendant from Genna Design . Made by hand, each one is a true one-of.
Here in the office we are all big fans of Liz Earle’s products and te divine blend of oils in her Superskin Concentrate makes it high on our wishlist. Naturally active ingredients include softening argan and organic rosehip oils, soothing neroli, lavender and chamomile essential oils … yummy.
And finally, with the 5p bag tax in the air, help your Mum build her collection of re-useable totes. Our colourful and fun cotton Sweet Tooth shoppers will remind her of a misspent youth (or possibly a visit to the dentist!).
