It’s time to celebrate Mums, Grannies, Aunties, Godmothers…and those special women in your life who deserve a treat.
My FGM (Fairy Godmother) is the most significant person in my life and thank god, is a die-hard gin lover.
Naturally, a bottle of gin is the most obvious gift to give, but if sometimes it’s nice to receive a gin-themed gift instead.
Here are some Mother’s Day gift ideas, that I’d love to receive!
Mini Martini Stud Earrings
Super-cute martini studs with olive setting. $49 The Iconic
Gin and Tonic Marshmallows
Delicious (I’ve tasted them!) gin and tonic flavoured marshmallows. $15 (for 12 pieces) The Marshmallow Club.
I bought this for myself at the beginning of iso and really enjoyed putting it together. It’s illustrated with botanicals, cocktails and a still. Some of it was really fiddly, but who doesn’t love a challenge? You could frame this once completed. $35 Cedar and Stone.
