Mamma Mia

For those of you having the annual problem of hunting down a gift that’s different but also says “I know you better than you think I do, and yes I am listening when you ramble in the kitchen”,

we’ve taken on the ever challenging task of Mother’s Day gifts so you can rest assured that even if you haven’t been the perfect son or daughter, your mum will have the perfect gift. (OK so we stole that last bit from a current advert)

We all know life just wouldn’t be the same without our wonderful mums, the one’s who listen time and time again when we’ve made mistakes, (crying down the phone at 2am always seems like a good idea at the time) or transferred us that £100 for the electricity bill because we just had to have that shirt to go alongside our other 8 shirts. Whatever the situation we couldn’t live without them (not to mention we wouldn’t be living without them!)

Kate Spade

There’s nothing by Kate Spade that we don’t secretly, (or not so secretly) hope to unwrap at any given opportunity; Birthday, Christmas, Easter, Valentines, New Years, May Day…. This year though we’re sharing the love with the women who gave us gift of jewellery appreciation in the first place, and if we happened to be able to borrow it once in a while it wouldn’t be the worst thing.
