Mother's Day is Sunday May 10th. It is about the gift of giving & showing Mothers how special, appreciated & loved we are. Now if you're as lucky as I am, you are blessed with this gift every day. Sometimes in subtle thank yous, other days with much fuss. Whether it's hand picked flowers from the garden, a coffee & magazine delivered to your favourite space in the house, or simply a little extra attention, "Mothers Day" is everyday, despite the rollercoaster of daily routines. However, since it's high on the commercial calendar of giving, let me share a few indulgent doses of simply divine retail pampering for your very special Mum or special Motherly role model, where you will find an abundance of gorgeous personal gift ideas that say " today is all about you and no one else"... It's all about the gift, the wrapping, the service, the attention to detail, so many different special touches that make the experience so memorable for that someone very special to you...
