Women Will Create's Festive Gift Guide - Presents for your Mum
I don't know about you but I LOVE a good gift guide. When it comes to buying presents for people at Christmas, I can be a little clueless as to where to start.
Over the last few years, I have really tried to shop for people whilst avoiding the high street and larger brands. I even cancelled subscriptions to stop me from ordering last minute bits from larger companies, as I knew they didn't need my money.
Of course, shopping small is something that I am passionate about. I wanted to put together a gift guide in a few sections to help anyone out who, like me, doesn't always know where to start!
So here we go! A selection of gifts that would be perfect for your mum!
If you are looking for something thoughtful and personalised, why not go for an engraved fragrance bottle? If you send a bottle over to Rebecca Writes, she will be able to add a perfect finishing touch that will give that gift something a little extra! Prices start from £12 and can vary depending on the amount of words that are engraved. There are a lot of perfumes you can now buy refills for so it can mean this bottle can be something that can be treasured forever!
One of my favourite gifts to give someone is a great candle. Instead of going fro large brands, I always opt for handmade. The scents are stronger and the packaging is a little different!
If, like me, you love to buy candles, then Hot Wax Newcastle is for you!
Their candles are made with soy wax, which is 100% natural and vegan-friendly, They are packed in eco-friendly packaging made from fully recycled materials. Each scent or candle is made in small batches to stop waste but also giving you something more unique and special.
Candles are £12.00 each, or a gift set of 3 is £30.00. Wax melts gift sets for £12.00 and include 4 wax snap bars.
