Shop small this Mother’s Day – Best Mothers Day Gift Ideas


Now more than ever small businesses need us to support them.  What better way than to find a beautiful bespoke gift for you mother this mothers day.  I have a blog full of amazing businesses that are local to me here in York.  I have chosen items that are available to be sent across the UK and would love for you to have a look at the items and consider these businesses for your mama this March.  If your looking for a thoughtful idea of a gift you can find online on the makers own website or Etsy then this is the blog post for you, here are my best mothers day gift ideas from independent businesses.  


Lisa Galley

Mothers day penguin print, independent business, Mummy penguin with two babies

First up is the lovely Lisa Galley.  There is a lovely collection of prints and card perfect for mothers day gifts.  Lisa Galley can be found here – How stunning are the prints from Lisa! I really love the penguin print.  The penguin is taken from an original hand illustration by Lisa.  It is available in A4 or A3 print, you can add your own personalisation in the notes when you check out.  This print is available in lots of colours and also in a card.  Lisa illustrates beautiful art work – check out her site to see.


PQ Soy Wax Candles


Wax melts this mothers day, an alternative to flowers.


PQ Soy Wax Candles  make these Wax Melt Bouquets, they were made in response to a passing comment about flowers dying so they created a bouquet that wouldn’t.
You can melt them or alternatively you can display the bouquet in a vase and enjoy the cold scent throw. The tags can be personalised free of charge, the bouquet fits inside a large letterbox making it ideal to post and they’re vegan friendly too.  There is a choice of colour/aroma combinations as well as single flowers and larger gift boxed versions.
Here’s the link to the etsy listing.  Etsy link. PQ Soy Wax Candles can also be found on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Draper’s bath house is a local business run by  Emily, and she’s 12 years old and she LOVES creating things. As you may know I have a twelve year old daughter so this business felt even more amazing!  Emily enjoys the process going from an initial idea to an actual product.

From last year she’s been absolutely obsessed with bath bombs, bath salts and aromatherapy so set out to create her own and she’d like to share these with you.All off the products are handcrafted and made of high quality ingredients, love and care.
Right before Xmas she got so busy with orders that she asked her mum to join her team.They have some interesting all year themed ones and others that are perfect for yourself or as lovely gifts. Draper’s bath house
