Ad - I was sent the items featured for the purpose of this gift guide.  

Spring is in the air and Mother's Day is a bit earlier this year and falls on Sunday 10th March here in the UK. We prefer to do Mother's Day on a budget and so I like to share affordable gift options. 


I love to read and know many mums who also like to also read in their down time, so I like to include books in my gift guides.

"What matters more, your place as a daughter or as a mother?"

Androulla is twenty-four and newly married when she learns that she is infertile. In a bid for Cypriot citizenship she is undergoing adoption by her stepfather, and wondering if she will have to adopt a child one day herself.

As this reality sets in, Androulla's marriage unravels. Between migration departments and doctors' appointments, she must question what it means to be from somewhere, what it means to be a woman and, when an impossible choice presents itself, which of those things means the most to her.

Clean G Rhubarb is a pretty in pink hangover-free hero, bursting with fruity aromas of London dry gin, rhubarb and red berries. Enjoy the notes of fruity rhubarb, juniper, and citrus with a subtle hint of coriander, mint and cinnamon. Delicious. 

I love crystal jewelry and  the wonderful Xander Kostroma have the most fabulous crystal jewellery on their site. All jewellery is made in small batches using fairly sourced crystals and 925 sterling silver or gold-plated components. This gorgeous crystal bracelet is made by threading (super) mini-Lapis Lazuli crystal beads onto a cotton string and is finished with a 925-sterling silver extension. 

It’s the perfect delicate piece to gift mum this coming Mothers Day. 

Designed by Xander this gorgeous Tote bag makes a great item to give as an additional gift. This limited-edition design is made from 100% cotton canvas and features a cashmere blue base, with the Xander Kostroma skull logo in a contrasting black repeat pattern which has been digitally printed.

It also has reinforced canvas strap handles branded with a continuous "Xander Kostroma" print that is durable and can carry your every day essentials with ease. 

I prefer to drink filter water over tap water and Zerowater have a range of jugs available that filter your tap water making it so much better and nicer to drink. The 12 Cup Ready-Read 5-stage Water Filtration Jug is perfect for a busy household to ensure you and your family have easy access to filtered water. Get peace of mind knowing you're always getting the purest tasting water with the new integrated TDS meter. This upgraded model with Ready-Read Technology gives an instant TDS readout of water as it passes through the device’s body. The premium 5-stage water filtration removes virtually all dissolved solids from your tap water – more than any other leading brand! See for yourself by detaching the meter and reading TDS levels before and after filtering your tap water.​
