Mother’s Day gift guide

I love a good gift guide mainly because I like browsing and thinking what I would like. Most of all I love shopping local which is why this Mother’s Day gift guide is the Market Harborough edit.

I think they think special about shopping locally supporting small businesses instead of the big guys because as we know when you buy from a small business that small business owner does a happy dance.

If you follow my Instagram you’ll probably know I love shopping at number 34 boutique there’s something there for for everyone and I love the spring colours of this beautiful scarf and handbag. If your budget is smaller why not grab a beautiful pair of earrings. No 34 on insta

I’m loving my make up at the moment and I bought a pallete from Midlife Happylife a year ago and love mixing and matching all the different products and colours that you can have. Why not treat your mum to a little mini makeover with Charlie and spoil her with her own custom made pallete.

For me an ultimate treat is a wonderful full body massage, local Laura Essentially Blended is a qualified aromatherapist I’m booked with in with her on Monday and I just can’t wait. She has space at Idyllic well-being in Wistow- a great setting where you can relax with a coffee too. Why not surprise your mum with a gift voucher

I love gifts that are activities and there is a brilliant local one that would be perfect to bring your mum to. Just before Mother’s Day _Insta mums meet ups are holding a spring wreath workshop hosted by The Flower bar harborough the workshop is only £35 including a glass of fizz Book here wouldn’t it be great to have a gorgeous bright and colourful wreath hanging on yours and your mum‘s doors on Mothering Sunday

Valentines gift guide

It’s a hard one; do you go for the traditional; but well loved? The cheeky!? The personalised? The edible? Or the cute? (Or do you just forget it (#awkward)

Are you buying for your girlfriend, wife, or maybe even Galantine???? Either way I can hopefully show you some awesome ‘small businesses’ that you may not be familiar with.

Personalised – sometimes it nice to be unique; with an awesome creation using a special song, your pictures, or even both. I love all of Aimee Rose Designs but for me it had to be this special song foil print with our wedding picture

I adored her designs so much, I went for the Valentine’s Day card too

Aimee Rose Designs

Edible If you are local to Market Harborough then you simply must try Enchanted Pantry all of Dawns makes are divine, but her Valentines menu looks spectacular- take a look

Thoughtful After all the greatest gift you can give us time…… Ava and Co I love these watches because they are beautiful; but lovely bonus is that they are a small Leicestershire based brand….. even more so is the story behind the brand and the ‘Ava’ in Ava and Co- go take a read

Traditional Roses- but not just any roses, roses from wonderful Philomena at the Flower Bar Market Harborough they’ll be wrapped plastic free and be ruddy stunning

No 34 boutique

For fashion lovers head to No 34 boutique in market Harborough they are currently full of pink and red loveliness all the heart accessories, wonderful cosy jumpers and perfect handbags.

Go all out and buy a cosy knit with some valentines accessories as a real treat. Not local to Market Harborough- head online to No 34 webshop

Pamper Needed? Then I have the place for you….. Secret Garden in Lutterworth is a hidden gem of a spa. I love their twilight packages and can imagine they’d be the perfect romantic treat

Me in the hot tub

Three hours relaxing; food, fizz, a treatment and hot tub time. Honestly it’s perfect…… but shhhh don’t tell everyone The Secret garden web

Beauty addict? The Laura Lane make up artist brushes are a real treat. There’s an eye set, or a face set; but to really spoil her go for both.

Laura also does make up classes; which I really fancy and sticks lots of awesome makes up and accessories including this own brand make up/travel case. Find our more Laura Lane Web

I hope I’ve given you lots of inspiration; lemme know in comments what you think…..
