Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 - AD
*Disclaimer - all items in this blog post were gifted in exchange for a review on our blog. However, all opinions are our own.
Mother's Day. There shouldn't be just one day a year where we appreciate everything our mothers do for us. However, society tells us that there should be a day where special consideration should be taken for those most important women in our lives! I've had the pleasure of being gifted some products from four small, independent companies in exchange for a feature in this gift guide. So hopefully this blog post will give you a little inspiration as to what to treat your lovely mamas this Mother's Day. If not, you may discover a new brand who could provide a cheeky little treat for yourself!
Aimee is a young lady who I've had the pleasure of knowing for most of her life! She's a multi-talented, hard working entrepreneur from Coleshill, North Warwickshire. Aimee set up her business a couple of years ago, baking in the comfort of her home. She has provided birthday cupcakes and cookies for us in the past and they're some of the most delicious treats I've ever come across! This year for Mother's Day, she's offering a couple of different products. Firstly, her infamous cupcake box costs just £10 for a box of 6. So much care and detail goes into each cupcake as you can see! If you like the added treat which is loaded with sweets and chocolates, there is a supplement of £2. Another amazing product Aimee offers is her giant cupcakes. I knew her cupcakes would be amazing as I've had them in the past, but when I tried the cookie, I had to immediately message her because I couldn't get over how delicious it was! Far better than the ones you can buy from a well known cookie chain! Safe to say this one didn't last long in our household! I love how with Aimsbakes you can taste the love of a homemade product, without compromising on the attention to detail you'd normally associate with a professional company. The cupcakes and cookie both lasted a few days and still tasted amazing, so as hard as it'll be to not want to eat them all in one go, you can be rest assured you can enjoy these treats for a few days! Aimee has limited availability so be sure to get yourself on her order books if you're local to Coleshill! Aimee can be found on both Facebook and Instagram.
Anyone who knows me, will know that the way to my heart is through sweet treats! So when a second company got in contact with me, I couldn't say no to trying their product! Sugar Coated are a small business from Chester, who offer both local collection and postage on their decorated cookies. My Mother's Day treat box arrived and was so carefully packaged, that when I opened it they looked perfect! The products were beautifully wrapped and instantly looked like a luxury gift. I've always believed it takes a lot of artistry to become a successful baker, and this company seem to have that down to a T! Sugar Coated provide designs for virtually any occasion so would make a perfect gift for any time of year, not just Mother's Day! I think the photos speak for themselves - the intricacy of the designs is just incredible, and as you'd expect, they're as tasty as they are aesthetically pleasing! Sugar Coated can be found on both Facebook and Instagram, and currently still have their order books open for Mother's Day!
If you've seen my previous blog post, you'll know that Luke and I recently visited Heaven Sent - a luxury salon and spa in Lichfield. They've won me over, from their wonderful customer service, to their extensive range of treatments available. I've never come across a spa whose attention to detail is impeccable and has so many 'little touches'. As an experienced spa and salon goer, those details certainly didn't go unnoticed and I love that this is what they pride themselves upon as a brand. There's nothing mamas appreciate more, than a little bit of 'me time', and a gift card from Heaven Sent would be a perfect present. Firstly, has anyone ever seen such an 'extra' looking gift card?! I think even the gift card screams 'luxury' so your mamas will instantly know they're in for a treat! If you can't make it to store to purchase a gift card, an e-gift card is also available via email. Heaven Sent have a salon in both Lichfield and Boldmere, Sutton Coldfield, so there's a great team of beauty therapists on hand to give your mama that pamper she so deserves. Appointments can be booked on their website, and they offer some lovely dual treatments too, so there's something in it for yourself! Each salon has its own Instagram and Facebook pages which you can access here -
The final company in my mini gift guide is Rock The Tee, from my hometown of Tamworth! Lisa is the ultimate woman! A twin mama with not 1 but 2 businesses and is absolutely smashing it! From the moment we started talking with Lisa, she was so lovely and we've really been looking forward to working with her. Her business Rock The Tee offer personalised printing on clothing and accessories. As a boy mom, it's really hard to find matching outfits, but Lisa sorted us out no problem with her custom ordering! I've had a few clothing items from Instagram shops, but Lisa's products are one of the best I've had! My jumper is amazing quality and is so comfy. The quality of the printing is brilliant too - I went for a leopard print which really stands out against the black! The items came so beautifully packaged as well which added a lovely touch, and certainly helps out those of you who struggle wrapping! Products are available to order through Facebook, Instagram or Etsy and some of the Rock The Tee collection is also available at Frankie Doodle Gifts at Heart Of The Country Shopping Village in Swinfen.
I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank all four businesses for wanting to take part in my gift guide! As I said at the beginning of my post, I'd like to hope that I've either given you some inspiration as to what to get your mamas for Mother's Day, or maybe even introduced you to a new brand that you intend to use in the future! Let me know in the comments how you're going to show your mamas how special they are to you!
