Mothers Day Competition


I am wondering if I ought to apologise for the amount of pictures that this post is likely to contain, but I'm hoping you will love them as much as me. I was talking recently to some very good friends of mine, Lucy, from London Bird Lucy and Mellissa, from The Diary of a Jewellery Lover about the tricky business of buying gifts for Mother's Day. There are so many generic 'Mummy' type gifts, mass-produced in our stores these days, much like I illustrated in my Valentine's Day post recently, that it's hard to find something truly unique and special. So, we decided to get together and figure out a lovely giveaway, with a prize that is sure to please any Mum.


If you haven't discovered Not on the High Street yet, it is my run-to place when I'm out of ideas. I don't know how they do it, but they always come up with amazing gifts that I would never have thought of and it's so easy to find the gift that is perfectly tailored to any person or occasion. They have a whole section devoted to Mother's Day, including personalised gifts and some for grandmothers too, which is a lovely thought. There is lots to choose from, which is especially useful, if you have little ones that need to buy gifts too. It's really helpful if you can get everything in the same place, but even more so, when you can choose something beautiful that will be cherished, instead of another 'Mum' tea towel, or mug, remarkably similar to last year's offering! Mum's do a really important job, so it is especially important to give them something considered and thoughtful. You should be saying 'Thank you, I appreciate you', rather than, 'I remembered to buy something, eventually!'


There are some lovely items available from Not on the High Street, and you can treat the Mum in your life, if you are lucky enough to win our competition. So, make your way through the competition widget below, and keep those fingers crossed!

No presents, just to spend time & chat with them is enough, to me a picked flower would mean as much as an expensive bouquet.

I would like to give my mother a day at the spa but she said she's not fussed on the idea so she's asked for flowers :) I would love to be woken by my 6year old Aaron and 4 year old Chloe with a cuddle in bed, Chloe likes buttering toast so I'd let her make me some toast and put milk in my tea and stir it because then she would feel like she's done something nice for me on mothers day. I'd like to bake some cookies or cakes with them and maybe go for a nice walk if the weather was fine and end the day with a nice warm bath and cwtch up on the sofa with a dvd :) Kate Milton

Would love to get my sis and bro-in-law over for Mum for Mothers' Day but unfortunately that's way beyond my bank balance as they are in Connecticut. Just be nice to go out for a meal, but Dad won't go and this year I won't be about too much on Sunday as I am away for the weekend and not getting back while late Sunday night (wasn't planned that way, but has to be done).
