The start of Spring is here! That means that Mother’s Day is just around the corner too. Like I do every year, I have put together a gift guide with lovely gifts for mums.

Astley Clarke Personalised Locket

They have a lovely range of locket necklaces that can be personalised with pictures inside and engraved too and they make a great gift for occasions like Mother’s Day.
Here you can see the Biography Earth Locket Necklace in Yellow Gold Vermeil which I have had personalised with a quote inside and a message on the back. It’s a beautiful dainty necklace and the recess engraving of the Earth design is perfect for anyone who loves travel and/or nature. The material is 18 carat yellow gold plated sterling silver and 10% of all sales go to environmental and rainforest conservation projects in collaboration with World Land Trust.
Real Almond Amaretto Liqueur and Dark Chocolate Pralines with Grappa Cream
This gift set includes a bottle of Villa de Varda Amaretto Liqueur which is made in tiny quantities and completely from natural almond skins (unlike most Amaretto liqueurs). The almond harvesting in the Trentino forests is tightly controlled to preserve the natural ecology of the woodland so only a small amount of the precious nuts can be collected. Villa de Varda is an artisan grappa distillery set in the Dolomite Alps and their small team collects the almonds by hand in the beautiful forests and then turns them into a creamy and sweet Amaretto Liqueur with flavours of dry biscotti, candied orange peel, mountain herbs and of course those amazing almonds with their hint of elegant bitterness.
With the Amaretto Liqueur, you get a packet of delicious Dark Chocolate Pralines with Grappa Cream that are handmade by the maître chocolatier of Villa de Varda. The dark chocolate shells are filled with a delicate and soft Grappa Riserva Triè-infused cream. The perfect combination of dark, high quality Italian chocolate and the rich flavour of barrique-aged grappa. What a treat!
Personalised Gold Popcorn Charm Bracelet from Inscripture
This pretty and stylish charm bracelet from Inscripture would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift. It’s made from 18ct Gold Vermeil and perfect for daily use and fancy occasions too. The bobbly “popcorn” texture adds interest, and the bracelet can easily be adjusted in size to fit different wrist sizes.
To the 19mm gold heart charm, you can add a name, date, or short message. Mine says “Mamma” for Mother’s Day. You can choose to engrave both sides of the heart if you wish. You can also request to swap the heart for a different charm if you prefer.
High quality homeware products are always a great treat and make great gifts. These beautiful Usva Linen Towels by Lapuan Kankurit are perfect! They are available in different sizes and suitable to be used as kitchen/hand towels or beach/bath/shower towels, depending on the size. They have a classic design that never goes out of style and lots of colourways to choose from to suit your home.
The 100% certified linen towels are super absorbent, fast-drying, high quality towels that are made to last and easy to care for. They add a touch of luxury to everyday life and make a beautiful gift for a mama who appreciates quality and the little things in life. White Motive is the UK retailer for these wonderful towels so head over there to pick up some up.

For Mother’s Day, they have a few lovely posters that are sure to make a mum feel loved, including the Home is Where My Mum Is Map that you can see above.

You can preview all the changes on the screen while you’re making the changes.
My mum and my side of the family are all in Stockholm, Sweden, so I personalised the Home Where My Mum Is option tomake a Stockholm map with a scribbly red heart and changed the colours to represent the Swedish flag. I’m so happy with the result!

Candles with a Story from Olivia’s Haven
Olivia’s Haven specialises in hand-poured soy candles and home fragrances. The company was founded by Olivia Burns from Coleraine, Northern Ireland. After working in branding for many years, she decided to create her own brand and that’s how Olivia’s Haven was born. Having always loved candles and being fascinated with the link between scents and memories, she started experimenting with wax and fragrance oils to create her wonderful range of candles with scents inspired by her own memories. She worked alongside an illustrator to create the vibrant designs for the packaging that match the stories that the scents tell.
There are many beautiful scents to choose from. Here you can see Wild Heather, inspired by Olivia’s mum’s insatiable appetite for adventure and The Secret Library inspired by a secret library at an inn from Olivia’s childhood. You can read the full story behind each scent on each candle’s product listing. I love this whole idea and the candles are amazing!
