  1. Here are a couple of gifts garden loving Dads can enjoy for Father's Day and thereafter - and a couple come with a personalised touch!

    Tree2mydoor.com are to trees as florists are to flowers.  Tree2mydoor.com send trees in the post, just as florists send flowers. 

    So Tree2mydoor.com (who I've used before and they are really good) have these personalised gifts which may be just the thing for Dads who love gardening and gardens...

    There's a Personalised Head Gardener Polo Shirt - you can add your dad's name (up to 15 characters) and there are several sizes to choose from...

    And there are also a Personalised Garden Hand Tools Set for £23.50 with a hand trowel and a hand fork.  You can have up to 3 initials engraved on the handle of each of these and I think they would make a lovely lasting gift for gardeners.   They're certainly different!

    And for Dads who love gardens and a Gin & Tonic, why not treat them to a Lemon Tree?  They can grow their own lemons for their G&Ts!  Tree2mydoor.com have a Lemon Tree you can send for £49.99....

    I've used Bunches.co.uk  several times before and they've given me great service.  I've ordered online and when I've had to get help on the phone, they've been really helpful :-)  


  3. I do love Emma Bridgewater's range of mugs - there's something for everyone.  I bought my mother one of the Wallflower mugs for a present and it looks really pretty - she puts flowers in them and puts them on a sideboard to enjoy.

    So there's good news if you're an Emma Bridgewater fan of her mugs.  There's a 2 half pint mug for £30 offer on at the moment.  And it includes boxed pairs!  

    Two half pint mugs for £30 from Emma Bridgewater!

    The offer ends midnight on Monday 26 March 2018 and of course there are a number of T&Cs** - but nonetheless this is a great offer.

  4. Green People have some lovely gift ideas for Mums who love to pamper themselves!  Their natural and organic products aren't tested on animals and they were started by a Mum who was looking for a solution to help her daughter's eczema and allergies.  

    I use their products and I love them.  I use their Gentle Cleanse and Make-Up Remover which is the best cleanser I've ever used; and also the Day Solution Moisturiser.   One of the reasons I love this company is because it works with chairties such as the Marine Conservation Society, the Woodland Trust and Butterfly Conservation and Plantlife, so they do support nature, which means a lot to me. 

    They have a range of products from moisturisers to hand cream, body lotion to make-up, and they also have two special edition gift boxes:

    Here's A Divine Treat, a special edition gift box of Orange Blossom skin care.  It includes Orange Blossom Exfoliator, an Orange Blossom Cleanser and an Orange Blossom Moisturiser, each of which is 50ml in size.

    And here's A Heavenly Treat, a special edition gift box of Damask Rose skin care.  It has a Damask Rose Cleanser, a Damask Rose Moisturiser and a Damask Rose Hand Cream.  Each is 50 ml in size.
