Shop Small: Mothers Day

Since starting my own small business, I've realised that you can feel like a needle in a haystack. There are so many marvellous makers out there that you can easily go unnoticed, and from a customer's perspective I've often found Etsy overflowing with choice too. 

To make things easier for both parties, I'll be shouting out small shops on the regular basis, and finding treasures so you don't have to! What better occasion to start with than Mothers Day?

Think of this nourishing balm as an all-natural Vaseline!

1: slabs of pale pink wax with gold glitter in them. 2: a small wooden pink with wings and a peg fitted to its back for holding photos. 3: a wooden embroidery hoop with blue fabric embroidered with lavender and daisies. 4: glass triangles each with different coloured hearts in them strung together with brown string

From heavenly home fragrances to personalised picture frames, I was spoilt for choice as I searched for these gems.

1: a round silver disc on a necklace with dandelions stamped into it. Smaller dics surround it with individual dandelions seeds on them. 2: a wooden triangle on a wall with necklaces hanging from it. 3: a shiny mint green dish with rippled gold edges. 4: a silver cuff stamped with dandelions

Etsy is the place if you want a personalised piece to treasure, whatever your mum's style. Personally I love this dandelion pieces because I'm a nature lover. They're that little bit different and both can be customised and made unique to your mum.
Personalised Family Dandelion Necklace £48
Wooden Triangle Jewellery Display £15
Mint + Gold Ring Dish £18
Engraved Dandelion Cuff £12.50

1: a pink notebook with a hot pink bear silhouette on it. The bear has 'mama' written in it. 2: a notebook wrapped in mint green paper printed with 'whatlyddid' in gold foil. 3: a notebook with a pink foxglove, yellow flowers, and a bee on the cover. 4: white pencils reading 'mother bear' in gold foil.

I'm a firm believer that you can never have too many notebooks. If none on Etsy take your fancy I wrote a post on wrapping a custom one with Pretty Gifted paper.
Pink Mama Bear Notebook £8.50
Mother Bear Pencils £4
Floral Foxglove Notebook £4.50
Pretty Gifted Paper £7.95
If your mum owns her own business you could have it printed on this personalised paper and wrap a diary in it for her, or cover a box with 'Mum's Memories' and fill it with trinkets and photographs.

What's the best gift you've ever bought your mum?
