Lockdown Mother's Day
The long Winter is over!
It’s been a emotionally draining year for long distance family relationships with not being able to travel, so you want to get your mum something nice for that special day of the year. Maybe you haven't seen her much in the last year, or for some people not at all, so let's make it a good one. My parents live over 100 miles away, so I currently haven't seen them since October half term, but I'm glad they did come to visit then when it was allowed, before it all got crazy again! I'm used to seeing them once a month, so it has been a long winter, but hopefully it won't be much longer now and I'll at least be able to see them outside once its allowed!
So, if you need some inspiration for lovely gifts, I'm going to show you an item from each of the 4 categories of Accessories that I sell. Sit back with a cuppa and have a browse!
Scarves have always been my Best Seller - everyone loves a new scarf, whether treating themself with a splash of colour to their outfit or a lovely gift for someone else (that's also easy to post in lockdown!), they are a great accessory.
I'm running an end of Winter sale on the Cashmere scarves - pure Cashmere, handmade in Nepal, its a gorgeous soft fabric and a great size, large enough to use as a scarf or wrap around yourself as a shawl! The bright colours have sold out, but I still have the classic colours that will go with any outfit; Black, Charcoal and Khaki, reduced from £23.99 to just £11.99! Grab a bargain now!
I have both Leather and faux Leather bags, an amazing range, including shoulder bags, crossbody bags and clutch bags. Quite a few bags in the range have adjustable, removable straps so that they can actually convert between all 3 of those bag types in 1!
My favourite is the Animal Print Leather bags, available in Leopard Print and Zebra Print, in Stars or Lips, very on trend and will look great once you're out and about again.
I have some stunning jewellery, in both Sterling Silver and Silver Plated. As I sell from independent brands, I have a range that is handmade by the lovely Sara from Silver Designed Personally and also a range of non-handmade bracelets and necklaces. These beautiful Star earrings are part of the SDP handmade range:
The final category of Accessories that I sell is Gifts. I'm a stockist for both Caroline Gardner and Lisa Angel, 2 independent brands that have amazing accessories & gifts. My favourite is this stunning Rose Gold Cosmetics bag from Caroline Gardner, it has a wipe clean lining and will brighten up your day carrying it in your bag or sitting on your dresser for your bits.
I hope those give you some ideas. If you need some more inspiration, I was honoured a few weeks ago, to be featured in the 'London For Kidz' Mother's Day gift guide! They featured my Silver Feather jewellery, amongst other lovely businesses and their products/services. Check it out here.
Have a lovely Mother's Day, hope you get spoilt by your kids and they get you something lovely, even if its just a lie in!
