As you can see, I have a desk full of goodies here. They are gifts that I have recently received ( with no obligation to post), but since I love them so much, I thought I’d share. How about some beautiful hardback books as mother’s day gifts?
I absolutely adore coffee table books, and I’m sure if you follow me on Instagram, you will have noticed my growing collection on my coffee table.
I would like to extend a huge thank you to Hardie Grant books for sending me this wonderful selection. If your mother loves Interiors then you’ll have to buy her Kit Kemp’s ‘Every Room Tells A Story’ .
I have always been a huge fan of interior designer Kit Kemp, and love how she boldly mixes colour and patterns together. Her book is certainly a visual feast not to be missed.
For mothers who love to cook, I would highly recommend Sicily by Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi. The book unearths the most beautiful local Italian dishes straight from the largest island in the Mediterranean.
If you have a mother with a sweet tooth and a penchant for travelling ( actually that sounds like me), then ‘The Desserts of New York’ is a must. I can’t wait to explore all those delicious and insta worthy spots when I next go to New York. For fashion lovers, I simply adore ‘ The Art of Stripes’ by Libby Vanderploeg. I mean, look at the cute cover in pink and red. I never knew there were so many ways to wear stripes and look stylish at the same time. You can never have too many candles right?
The ones by Miller Harris are a perfect mother’s day gift. Not only do they smell delicious, they come in such cute and colourful jars and packaging too.
Miller Harris have asked me which ones are my favourite, so far it’s a tug of war between the sweet citrus scent of Tangerine Vert and the blackcurrant pear scent of Cassis en Feuille. In case you were wondering about those beautiful plates and milk jar I have used for flowers, they are from Cath Kidston’s Park Wildlife Home collection. The whole collection is gorgeous. I have my eyes on the bunny set too. If your mum is really into beauty, then how about these blushers from Benefit Cosmetics.
The Galifornia golden pink blusher is amazing for a little warm California glow to a Winter’s skin, whilst dandelion gives off a beautiful shimmer.
For fans of Benefit’s Porefessional face primer, I’m loving the new Pearl primer with its additional brightening effect for a radiant look. ( It helps that the tube comes in my favourite pink colour too) Last but not least, how about a delightful tin of mother’s day bouquet luxe biscuits from Biscuiteers? The tin contains 16 hand iced biscuits, inspired by the traditional language of floriography. The flowers represent grace, patience, kindness and a mother’s love. Tea time can never come sooner for me with this tin of biscuits at home. They are too pretty to eat too, but that hasn’t stopped me. They also have Gluten free versions, and you can order them online, to be sent straight to your mother. Hope you’ve enjoyed this post. It’s been so fun sharing this with you.
Hope you’ve managed to find something from here, that your mother would like too. I know I would love to receive these gifts on mother’s day.
Wishing you all a wonderful start to your week.
