With Mother’s Day this weekend, you have just a few days to pick the perfect present to say thank you for all those moody teenage years… As you might know, here at Lee Renee we like to give presents that we would happily receive ourselves. Handmade, unique or longlasting – give the Mums and Grans in your life something to think of you fondly by, every time they use it (and nab yourself title of the favourite while doing so!)
The up and coming designer has found her spiritual home in Stornoway and works to create jumpers, handbags and accessories in the lovely Harris Tweed.
Our favourite of the By Rosie designs is the Moor Chic bag – in gorgeous berry coloured Harris and with leather handles. It makes us think of stained red wine lips and being wrapped up for countryside walks.
Other than a trip to the north of Scotland itself, we think you can’t beat this as a home grown Hebridean gift for your mum.
This London based company is a beacon for feminist art lovers – selling beautiful copies of fiction and non-fiction written by women, that have been largely neglected during the twentieth century.
The covers and inserts of these books are stunning. Receiving one book monthly, the Persephone 6 month or 12 month subscription would make a wonderful gift. By the end, you would have a collection that looks classy in any style of home and have read something completely new!
SOCIAL: If you do read a title you love – let us know on Twitter!
Flowers schmowers. Succulents and greenery are where it’s at for indoor plants. You and your Mum can spend a lovely relaxing morning together learning how to create your own self-contained ecosystems during this two hour hands-on workshop led by London Terrariums.
They will guide you through the history and science of the terrarium, before showing you how to assemble your own, providing makers with handy tips to ensure your creations continue to thrive after they’ve left the classrooms. Plants, glass vessels and all tools will be provided along with a care guide and perfectly printed tote bag. Visit the London Terrariums Workshop event page to book in advance.
Well, we couldn’t do a gift list without including the most beloved pieces from our own collections!
For new designs to the Lee Renee family that look beautiful and classic on the women in your life, the heart shaped pieces in the Delicates Collection fit the bill. They are selections in both silver and gold and the Initial Necklace adds extra personalisation – sure to be a favourite piece quickly.
The Halo Necklace is simple and elegant – always a popular choice for gifts. With all pieces arriving at your door in branded gift-wrapped boxes, it makes a great choice for a last minute present purchase.
Are you a mum? We’ll be here for if you want to treat yourself, any time of the year. Thank you for all your hard work – we literally wouldn’t be here without you!
Happy Mother’s Day from all at Lee Renee xx
