Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Team member: Gerda Micke, Digital Marketing Coordinator
Mum Likes: Anything cooking and baking related, hand-made greeting cards and beauty products.
Mum Dislikes: Flashy jewellery, dirty kitchen.
The Gift: Minimalistic tableware would make a perfect gift and would be very handy for our family dinners. My mum’s all-time favourite Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni dish would look incredibly lovely served on a white plate. I think she would love Emma Alington’s handcrafted products.
Team member: Vicky Creevey, Enterprise and Events Manager
Mum likes: Anything cosy (such as nice socks), funny or creative gifts.
Mum dislikes: She’s clumsy – like me – so I avoid buying her anything that’s easy to break!
The gift: My mum works with children and is really creative so I’d buy her one of the STORY Walk-In Books to use with her class. When I was a child she used to do puppet shows so she’d love the little props that come within the pack.
Team member: Lewis Campbell, Retail Office and Shop Assistant
Mum likes: Anything homeware or dog related – she loves dogs!
Mum dislikes: She’s pretty easy to please, but I avoid buying anything pink for her. She’s not a fan!
The gift: Recently my mum told us she doesn’t want us spending money on her, but on things that will add to the house, and I think the Mathilda Della Torre prints would be perfect for her kitchen. She loves art and travel, and I think these prints would be a great addition to her collection!
Team member: Natalie Stevens, Enterprise Space Retail Manager
Mum Likes: Jewellery, anything with diamonds usually, otherwise rose gold or simple unique designs are big hit.
Mum Dislikes: Receiving beautifully wrapped but empty jewellery boxes with a note to say ‘it’s the thought that counts’ (my dad actually did this once!).
The Gift: Maya Magal’s Rose Gold Stacking Ring, or the Triangle necklace with stone charm as they are beautifully designed, handmade and simple. My mum used to work in a boutique designer store so has a good eye for jewellery and unique pieces. I took her advice when selecting the original collection for not just a shop, so I know she would love them.

Mum Likes: Homeware, anything relating to coffee or something useful/creative for the kitchen. She likes to relax so London Refinery candles would definitely be up her street.
Mum dislikes: My mum is not very fussy and appreciates the thought more then anything, I would avoid anything too flashy and I can’t buy her jewellery because of her job as a chef.
Gift: She likes to write so I would buy her one of the James Barker Notebook sets, or a House of Cally West London cup to enjoy her morning cuppa. I think she would also really appreciate one of Yuta’s pots as she likes collecting small trinkets and objects.
