Buying a gift for Mum can sometimes be a challenge. You might not know what she wants or you may do what I did one year and go out and buy the wrong thing. Yep that was me, I visited Wilko and bought my mum the latest mop, sponges, a bucket and dish cloth and she was less than impressed. I genuinely thought Mum would love it but I was just a child. Well to save you the same problems, whether your looking for gifts for your mum or partner, here are some fantastic suggestions. Do enjoy.
The items I am sharing have been reviewed on The Inspiration Edit in 2017, or samples of the products have been sent to me or I genuinely really love the products and can honestly recommend them.

Why not treat Mum this Christmas to a print or original piece of contemporary Art by Yvonne Coomber. Yvonne Coomber is a British contemporary artist based in South Devon who has a loyal global following. Yvonne’s highly sought-after flowerscape paintings sing of tumbling hedgerows, tangled meadowlands, open moorland and magical forests. They whisper of love. Through her work Yvonne transports the viewer to an effervescent place of happiness; a place where paint smiles. Her mixed media constructions often include glitter, gold leaf and multiple layers of rainbow-strewn glazes and paint that come together to create a perfect harmony. This unique technique encourages her delicate yet sprightly florals to be catapulted up from the canvas in a kaleidoscopic confetti shower of joy. Yvonne’s work is a constant pursuit for beauty and happiness.
