Mother’s Day in the UK is on Sunday 31st March this year, so I thought it would be fun to do a little round up of gift ideas.

Can you spot a few new things in my living space?

How cute is my new coral red plastic rug from my favourite store Pappelina?

This one is called Dana. Would be a lovely Mother’s day gift for your interiors loving mum don’t you think? You may have also spotted a lovely bottle of Prosecco next to my Swarovski glasses?

A bottle of Prosecco for mother’s day would be much appreciated! Says this mama. It’s not any ordinary bottle of Prosecco, but it’s Princess Prosecco. Let me explain a little more. Princess Prosecco are quality Prosecco imported from Italian vineyards, delivered straight to your door. Mothers Day gift ideas What’s cool is that in addition to getting a one off delivery or send as gift, you can also subscribe monthly.

Each month the Prosecco comes with an indulgence box with a theme based on the colour of the birthstone. Here’s what I got with my Prosecco – a miniature bottle of Gin with a recipe card for creating a Prosecco cocktail, a few sweet treats, a Flamingo luggage tag, an eyelash curler ( my daughter has already claimed it) and the surprise treat is a collection of Tincture household cleaner. That’s not the end.

Here are more Mother’s Day gift ideas.

Do you spot the treats? Let’s get closer. And closer.

Feast your eyes on my gorgeous A3 art print by Pea and Me. How fabulous are those colourful floral illustrations and the leopard print “Mother Hustler” words?

If I were you, I’d order one now for mum before they sell out. You spotted the Biscuiteers iced biscuits on my bedside table right? Another wonderful mother’s day gift.

If you quote LITTLEBIGBELL10 at checkout before March 31st 2019, then you get a 10% discount at Biscuiteers ( not including experiences or charity collection). So there you go. My Mother’s day gift ideas. Hope you like the recommendations. Wishing you all a wonderful week.

Jollie-Socks-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I must admit I still have a few more gifts to buy. Time is running out, but the most difficult part is deciding on what gift to buy?

There is still time to get something online and delivered by express, so I thought I’d share with you some of the favourite gifts that I have personally received. Here you have my last minute Christmas gift guide for 2015.

Gift number one are Jollie socks from Jollie Goods. Not only do I love the vibrant colours of these socks but also the concept behind this online store.

It was founded by Ed Vickers, who I have personally met. Whilst at Universty as a student, Ed was inspired to help the homeless. He came up with the idea of providing them with fresh pairs of socks. To all, it may seem a small gesture, but a pair of socks for a homeless person has a large impact, not only providing them comfort and warmth but helping with foot health issues that they are constantly suffering with, I know that for a fact as a doctor.
Jollie-Socks-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell For every pair of socks that we buy, we are doing our part for the homeless. So please do support. They are super cool and comfortable too. They come in matching tins, perfect for the Christmas stockings, don’t you think? Colourful-happy-enamel-plates-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell These bright and colourful enamel plates are just perfect to inspire me. Is there a friend in need of cheering up during this festive season?

They can also be put up on the wall as decor and are by Kate Samuels design. Tylko-totem-mill-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell This Tylko Totem mill for pepper and spices would be the perfect gift for someone who likes to cook and entertain.

It’s designed by Kristian Kowalski. You can customise your Totem mill with different colours online too.

I love mine as it is, in an orangey red with blue on white beech. Old english-company-pillow-cases-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Have you got a teen who loves to stay in bed with the laptop and headphones? I’ve been reassured this is quite normal behaviour for teens. Well, these pillow cases in a brush lettering font from Old English company would be the perfect gift then. Faber-castell-pen-for-Christ,mas-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell For that friend of yours who is a professional and seem to have everything, how about a gift that is both functional and elegant as this Faber Castell Ambition OpArt ballpoint pen in aqua? Faber-Castell-pen-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Well, everyone needs a pen right? Even better that the pen comes in such a gorgeous shade of aqua. Parris-wakefield-additions-laptop-and-ipad-cases For a lover of colour and technology, how about these super vibrant laptop and i-pad cases from Parris Wakefield? The designs are crafted digitally by mixing, merging and layering colours from a variety of inspirations. The cases are also waterproof for protection of your gadgets.

I have selected two different patterns and love the bold clash of colours together. Eyeko-eye-make-up-2-on-Little-Big-Bell I have recently discovered this cool eye make up brand called Eyeko. I’ve now started using the eyeliner and mascara. It really does create striking eyes. There are also tutorials on their website for you to learn.

Needless to say, this would be a wonderful gift for a make up fan. Someone who loves trying out new brands to create that perfect look of the season. Little-P-round-and-round-rug For the little fella in your life, how about this super cute Round and Round rug in geometric patterns from Little P? My son loves his rug and we will be showcasing it in his room on the blog soon. Drye-towel-in-a-tin Last but not least, how about a gorgeous towel in a tin from Drye. It may be Winter now, but let this towel remind us of sunny climes and days by the poolside to come. A towel is very much a universal gift, reserve this for someone you have absolutely no idea what to buy for. The designs are all gorgeous too.

Hope you find this last minute gift guide helpful. I’m off to check my gift list now.
