Something for Mother’s Day

If your husband is like mine, any gift purchase is a stressful time, so he appreciates lots of hints thrown his way.  The problem is, sometimes I don’t have any ideas of things I would fancy, but this year ahead of Mother’s Day, I have started keeping a small list of nice ideas that someone like me might appreciate and I’d thought I’d share it with you.

Something personalised

Shhhh… this is actually a gift for my husband for Father’s Day I have already organised, a personalised coffee mug with photo’s of our family wrapped around it.  I received the most fantastic service and quick turnaround from a small business in Table View, and even better, it cost R50!  Contact for orders.Mug for Father's day2

Something beautiful

I love a gorgeous scarf to accessorise and turn a plain t-shirt into a glamourous outfit. Cotton Candi is known for their washi tape and crafts, but they also offer a superb range of scarves for under R100. candi

Something relaxing

What mom doesn’t want some time out to relax? None!  One of my favourite spots is in Wynberg on the edge of Constantia at the Farriers Centre, and Gingerlily spa is set in this tranquil courtyard, a little oasis in the hustle and bustle of a busy suburb.  Gingerlily offers a full range of spa treatments at reasonable spa prices and you can even order a delicious treat from High Tea coffee shop next door.


Something edible

Well, something for mom to cook from in this case, a new recipe book! Your Best Life is the new cookbook by Dr Michael Mol and John Berry (from Kauai) and is packed with great and healthy recipes for you and your family. You can find it at Exclusives or online on Kalahari, Loot or

Something for your stuff

All moms like to carry around quite a lot of stuff, and our handbags take quite a strain.  After a major hint last year, my husband bought me this stunning coral handbag from Hodgy’s for my birthday and I have been so happy with this purchase. Such a great quality handbag (at a decent price) but it is also trendy and can fit a host of items in it!  It costs R360 and you can order online at
