Gift Guide for Her – Since halloween has been and gone and we have celebrated firework night I think its safe to start talking about Christmas.

The best part about this series is that you have the opportunity to win all the items mentioned in the guides which is worth a staggering £422

willow & finn Hand Poured Soy Candles

What better gift to give a mum this Christmas than some much needed me time?  willow & finn specialise in hand poured, small batch, soy wax candles uniquely fragranced with pure essential oils and luxury fine fragrance oils – with a nod to creating scents that both boost the mood or ignite a memory. The candles are poured into both refillable vintage containers and stylish apothecary amber jars including mini ones for travel. These are so beautiful and smell divine. Not only that their products and packaging have the environment in mind, packaging is recyclable and the soy used sustainable and carbon neutral. What’s more, any candle packaging that is returned to willow & finn, will go towards a discount on the next purchase. The fine fragrance oils are all phthalate and paraben free. Priced at £8 each for the 60ml travel size or £22 for the larger 180ml size they make a stylish vest responsible gift choice. You can currently get them online on their website.

 Dot Art Sticker Book

I love anything creative but I need to be able to pick it up and put it down easily around work and family commitments. These Dot Art Sticker Books from the National Gallery Bookshop allow me to do just that. So are perfect for creative but time stretched mums. There are two available to choose from Van Gogh’s A Wheatfield, with Cypresses and Georges Seurat’s Bathers at Asnières. Which are two of the most popular paintings in London’s National Gallery. They allow adults to understand how the two artists used colours to create vibrant and luminous scenes, resulting in the creation of works of art in stickers. Opening with a brief informative essay, each book contains thousands of coloured round stickers and  a poster “canvas” of coloured outlines. Readers simply need to match the stickers to the outlines found on the poster to recreate the painting, though it’s not necessary to place each sticker on  precisely the right outline. RRP £10.99 

MAD Beauty Rose Handy Set

A really handy set for a day out, a trip to a festival or a picnic possibly. The set comprises of a pack of wet wipes, a hand cream and our famous moisturising hand sanitiser  all with a light rose fragrance and also a pack of 3 ply tissues. Perfect the handbag and to make sure the special lady in your life is never without. Available from MAD Beauty RRP £9.99

Poppy Red Pen Tray Case

Light Lab pencil cases are not just for kids! This is ideal to fit into any bag and to store all your stationary essentials so they are easy to find. Instead of digging around at the bottom of a bag or similar. I love the colour and the fact that it opens up completely flat. Made from  easily wipeable  soft, flexible silicone fabric. This unique Japanese design adds a stylish touch to your everyday accessories. Available to buy from Gift Giving All Wrapped Up RRP £12.00

Scaramanga Large Leather Vintage Journal

You can never have enough journals and this  slim classic large leather journal from Scaramanga  looks as if they are the kind of leather journal Indiana Jones would use on one of his trips! They are handcrafted from repurposed vintage leather, so no two leather notebooks are alike. Containing  40 pages (80 sides) of handmade paper made from recycled cotton, which creates a unique texture that is suitable for most pens types (except fountain pens) and sketching. These great value handmade leather notebooks/journals can be used as diaries, journals, as sketchbooks, writing down recipes, collecting poems, they make a great place to record an exotic or unusual holiday with memories, photos, mementoes and souvenirs. RRP £22 and available online from their website.

Love Leggings

Leggings are a wardrobe staple when you are a mum. If its to throw on under a tunic for play days, lounge wear or for exercise. Love Leggings are  a new premium leggings wear brand that supplies a range of products including everyday cotton, sports, maternity and kids leggings and tights. With quality at the centre of everything they do their leggings are non-see-through and come in inclusive sizing from a UK size 4-28. They also have a wide range of colours and a range of fits and lengths to suit everyone. I was so impressed with the choice available. I opted for Focus Plum 7/8 Sports Leggings which are perfect for yoga. The have a no-fuss seam design for zero interference and a flattering ‘V’ shaped waistband for a perfect bum-shaping silhouette. I need all the help I can get after two kids! As they are 7/8’s in length, finishing perfectly above the ankle, or if you a petite like me it means they actually fit properly. I love them and the colour is so different they are too good just to wear for yoga! RRP £28

Portmeirion Auris Gin Glass Set of 2

For a really special gift these gin glasses are great for enjoying your favourite craft gin from. They are exactly what I have come to expect from Portmeirion. They come in a lovely gift box with three clear or pink crystals. The glass ware is sturdy sits nicely, yet it is not thick so easy to drink from. They are great quality and make a thoughtful gift. RRP £56.50 they are available from the Portmeirion website.

Folk Doves Backpack

Part of my mum wardrobe is a backpack. Running around after a toddler I need both hands free and I know they are a staple that a lot of  other mums use. But that doesn’t mean that it needs to be a boring one. This gorgeous Folk Doves Backpack is large enough to stash a laptop or spare pair of shoes when its not full of all the necessary stuff you have to carry around with kids.
