Yes, I know Mother’s Day in the UK happens in March. I freak out every year when the marketing hits the windows that I’ve forgotten to send home a card and something pretty to show my mom how much she’s appreciated. But American Mother’s Day – the one we celebrate – is this coming Sunday. So, I thought I’d put together a little gift guide for the day.
Here’s one of my favourite recent photos of my Mom and I – trying on glasses in Anthropologie in London:
And here’s a few gift ideas to help out those of you who are still shopping! If you need some more ideas, Diana also has a great Mother’s Day gift list over on exPress-o.
1. Vibrantly coloured Liberty iPad case; 2. Relaxing Lavender Foaming Bath from L’Occitatane; 3. A pretty Cuisine Couture Apron from Anthropologie; 4. Cedar Hanging Hearts for storage from The White Company; 5. An uplifting candle from Jo Malone. I like English Pear and Freesia; 6. A gothic cut bird feeder made by my dad from Sadler Garden Collections; 7. A summery Flower Bud Print Scarf from J. Crew; 8. A recipe book like What Katie Ate, full of beautiful photography and tasty meals; 9. A bright blue terracotta pot from Domani; 10. Little Observationist photography print to brighten up an empty wall

Aww..I love that photo of you and your mom:) You both are so beautiful and thank you for the link-love. Very sweet of you, Steph:) I love your list so much! My mom would adore that apron and I got her (and myself) “What Katie Ate” cookbook for Christmas. Such a gem! Have a beautiful Wed and talk to you soon. xoxo

That photo of you and your mum is so adorable. I love that Anthropologie apron, although I’m guessing it’s hideously expensive.

Thanks Lisa! I love Anthropologie aprons as well. The one I posted is £28 so not too bad! http://www.anthropologie.eu/anthro/product/home-kitchen/7532455558920.jsp?cm_mmc=SearchPPCUK-_-PLA-_-Kitchen-Aprons,TeaTowelsPotHolders-_-7532455558920&gclid=CO2A4sDgob4CFdMftAoduj0A7w#/
