A Natural Choice for Mother’s Day

A Natural Choice for Mother’s Day

Don’t forget it’s Mother’s Day this coming Sunday. There’s still time to order something on-line and, with spring just around the corner, why not go for a gift that captures birds singing and bees buzzing. We’ve got six seasonal suggestions to suit everyone’s pocket and taste.

Lumie Bodyclock

Lumie bodyclock

Lumie Bodyclock is the original wake-up light, also known as a dawn simulator. It wakes you up using natural light, which gradually grows stronger over a given period of time. This lets your body know that it needs to cut back on sleep hormones and start producing hormones to get you going for the day ahead.

The Lumie Bodyclock helps keep your sleep cycle on track, helping to boost your mood, energy and productivity levels throughout the day. The Bodyclock Go 75 costs £74.95 from www.lumie.com

Holly Lassiter Animal Mug

New Zebra Mug by Holly Lasseter Designs

You can never have too many mugs, especially when they’re as pretty as this zebra mug. Inspired by a visit to Edinburgh’s Botanical Gardens, the Benmore Ash Collection features two British animals surrounded by ash leaves and two African animals.

The mugs costs £14.50 each from www.hollylasseterdesigns.co.uk  and there are matching notebooks too.

Wilderness Collection Phone Cover

IPhone Wood case

From Snakehive London comes this range of natural wood phone covers, sustainably sourced from around the world. The range is suitable for a variety of phones and the rubberised interior means they fit perfectly. The prices start at £12.95 www.snakehive.co.uk

Tesco Mother’s Day Blue & Yellow Posy

Yellow and Blue Posy

We were very impressed with this Mother’s Day bouquet. A delightful blue and yellow posy featuring seasonal colours and comprising yellow tulips, daffodils, blue anemones and hyacinths highlighted by sala and gypsophilia. This hand-tied bunch comes complete with a cream ‘milk churn’ and not only looks good, but fills the house with a wonderful fragrance too.

The bouquet costs £25.00 www.tesco.com/direct

Julie Dodsworth-inspired BUFF®

Buff JD

A new range of designs are the collaboration between original multifunctional headwear brand BUFF® and British artisan designer Julie Dodsworth. Inspired by her days spent living on her narrowboat ‘Calamity Jane’, Dodsworth has created four unique Original BUFF® designs.

We love this blue one called Time to Nest featuring cheerful birds on the wing. It costs £16.75 www.buffwear.co.uk

Beefayre Hand Cream

Bee Calm hand cream

Beefayre wellbeing products are handmade in England and use the very highest quality natural ingredients, free from any petroleum by-products.

This Bee Calm hand cream is deeply nourishing and hydrating made, as it is, with cocoa and shea butter plus vitamin E. It’s gently fragranced with essential oils of lavender & geranium and comes in a perfect handbag size, 100g tube.

Available from www.beefayre.com for £12.95.



SkinYoga is a 100% natural and vegan-friendly skincare brand, which creates products inspired by ancient times but adapted suit to our modern lifestyle.

Every ingredient in the SkinYoga range comes from a renewable source and is without a hint of toxic nasties. The products are presented as a dry powder, which means that the ingredients are at their most potent when activated for use, simply by mixing them with water.

Like the discipline of yoga, the products are designed to reflect the principles of harmony, balance and to be in synergy with nature.

There are nine products within the range and we particularly love the Saffron Sandalwood face mask – perfect for hydrating the skin and to combat aging. It comes beautifully presented in a wooden box and costs £27 from www.skinyoga.co.uk
