As we start thinking about Christmas and all the organising, gift buying, food preparing and social planning involved, us Mums often forget to think about what we might want as a gift from those partners and parents in our lives.
I know that when I am asked, I usually say, 'Oh! I don't mind, I don't need anything;' whilst secretly thinking 'you better think of something wonderful to show me just how much you love, appreciate and most importantly, understand me!'
With that in mind, and to help you drop appropriate hints to those that might ask, we have compilied a range of gorgeous gifts that we thought you might just love. Get ready to leave your browser conveniently open on this page over the next month or so!
All of the following items are produced and sold by local businesses and supporters of Mums in Bath. It would be great to be able to support other local mums this Christmas.
1. Lily&Bee skincare's range of serums and balms are just divine and should definitely be on this year's wish lis
The natural Skin Lifting Serum is packed with powerful ingredients which are full of vitamins and antioxidants to keep your skin looking firm and vibrant. It is packed with great quality essential oils including geranium, lavender oil, rosemary and the very Christmassy frankincense.
The Overnight Nourishing & Restoring Balm contains a unique formula of 9 different skin-enhancing oils to nourish your skin while you sleep; unclogging pores, controlling oil production and soothing ittitation. Including black seed and centaury oils to help clear clogged pores, control oil production and soothe irritation.
At £16.99 and £14.99 respectively, these two products are great together to give you the gift of fabulous skin this Christmas.
Even better, Mums in Bath can use the coupon code 'winter19' for 20% off on their website until the end of December 2019! Check out Lily&Bee's website for their full range of products.
2. If you are a fan of the gift of jewellery then local goldsmith's Jody Cory is the place to go. Jody's range of handmade unique, beautiful jewellery is made in her workshop near the Abbey. They also sell a range of gorgeous items from other designers and offer bespoke and remodelling of existing items too. Got something sentimental that needs a new lease of life? Jody Cory is the woman to speak to. Contact them directly for more information.
I especially love Jody's own inner circle necklace, as well as the cute Reeves and Reeves Oragami Elephant earrings and the Kit Heath Coast Tumble Trio Station Gold, Rose Gold Bracelet. Prices range depending on materials and workmanship but the ones I have chosen here are all £40-£85.
3. For something gorgeous for the kitchen table, Julia Davey Ceramics sell lots of beautiful items, with designs inspired by the local area. Whether it is the perfect penguin mug for a coffee hamper gift, a beautiful jug or butter dish, or a cute trinket dish, you are bound to find something you love.
Handmade and designed by Julia herself, you really don't get more local. I quite fancy one of Julia's craft workshops in her Bear Flat shop. Visit her website to see all of her gorgeous designs.
4. Let's be honest, as much as we love Christmas, it isn't exacly a relaxing holiday for those of us who have to do the hosting. What better, then, than the gift of a massage at Bath Massage Company?
A voucher for a visit with Polly and her team in her George Street treatment rooms for a relaxing massage designed for tired, stressed and aching muscles sounds perfect to me! Prices range from £35 to £65 for a Swedish massage.
