Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

C & A: If you’re anything like us, you will want to treat your mum to something really special on Mother’s Day – and with it fast approcahing us on 30th March this year, we thought we would show you some lovely ideas for gifts. We’ve tried to include ideas from a wide price range, have a look and let us know which is your favourite!

Firstly, we have decided to include one of our favourite books – Mary Berry’s Autobiogrpahy, we reviewed this a while a go (find it here). This is available on Amazon from £9.00 – a bargian for such a lovely present.

Marc Jacobs have brought out a lovely new perfume just in time for Mother’s Day, Annie tested this last week and loved it – it has a lovely spring scent, flowery and pretty but fresh too. It can be found at Boots for £48.00.

The ‘Just Call Me’ tea towel is perfect because you can personalise to which ever famous chef suits your Mum the most! A unique gift for just £10, available here from notonthehighstreet.com

The ‘Mother Hen’ necklace by Amanda Coleman is so pretty – it can be ordered in either silver or gold and is also available from notonthehighstreet.com from £40, find it here.

We had to include these because they are beautiful. They are made by The Cake Lady who is based in Boston, Lincolnshire. She is selling these handmade goodies as special Mother’s Day packages – sadly she can only take orders for collection, but her shop is well worth a visit if you’re in the area. Take a look at her Facebook page in the link to see some more of her baked treats, and have a look around your local area for unique Mother’s Day gifts like Rebecca offers – you might find something as exciting as this!

What Mother’s Day gift ideas do you have? We’d love to know! #twolittleowls

Recipe for Life: Mary Berry’s Autobiography.

A: This is such a good read. I loved Mary Berry anyway and it’s made me love her even more. I love the fact that she’s included some of her family recipes and photos in it too – it makes it feel so personal. However, if you’re going to buy it and have an e-reader I’d recommend buying the actual book. The photographs aren’t very clear on my kindle screen and you can flip between the recipes because they are slotted randomly in between different chapters.

C: Annie downloaded this on her e-reader and said it was really good (and we love The Great British Bake Off/ just Mary Berry) so I really wanted to read it but I don’t have a Kindle so I couldn’t steal it. Annie ended up getting me it as one of my Christmas presents, and I read it cover to cover in 2 days! It is so easy to read and Mary (we are basically BFF’s now and on first name terms) has had such an interesting/difficult life that although I’m not usually interested in autobiographies, I loved this! I would tell you more but I don’t want to ruin the book for you, but it has useful recipes throughout the book (such a good idea!) and lovely photos. It is also really easy to read so is perfect as a bed time read. My mum has currently stolen it (and is loving it) and Mave (Annie’s mum) is borrowing it next!

Something a bit different from us today, but we love reading so if you want any more book reviews/recommendations please let us know #twolittleowlsblog
