Mum’s Christmas Little Luxuries Gift Guide

I have a lot of lovely women in my life; my amazing Mom, sisters, extended family and close friends, all who I love buying gifts for.  Some of those are super easy to buy for, however I completely understand what it feels like to hit a brick wall when it comes to searching for the right gift for your Mum or Mum figure in your life!

I always try and seek gift inspiration each year in some form or another, so I thought it would be super helpful to showcase some of our top picks in our woman’s Christmas Gift Guide.

Christmas Cards

First and foremost, let’s talk Christmas Cards!  Does your Mum love a Christmas card with a difference?  There pop up Christmas Cards are perfect if so, as they are beautifully decorated and so detailed.  Crafted by a small team of paper engineers and illustrators, this year’s collection features 12 new designs, from the traditional to the whimsical, including Santa exploring his garden shed, to sleighs topped high with presents. There is also the Santa Express setting out to deliver gifts, a London double decker bus busy with festive animals, as well as a tartan Christmas car, cosy Christmas cottage and a gingerbread house. There are even festive inspired lanterns, a nativity scene and winter animal displays to choose from. Find them here at and prices start from £6.99.

For Jewellery lovers

Personalised locket

I love anything personalised, especially jewellery.  It can mean so much to the person you are gifting it too, but it is also lovely for the person giving the gift to see their reaction to something so sentimental.  Love Lox Lockets are the perfect way to show something how much you love them this Christmas with a personalised locket.  Not only can you have the locket engraved, but there is also space inside for two photos to be included.  The quality of the prints inside are perfect!

For Book Lovers

The Push over by Daney Parker is a gripping murder mystery with a twist!  The blub writes:

As reporter Grace investigates the killing of a cyclist, memories of another murder begin to process her – the murder she committed… Trying to come to terms with the crime she believes she has got away with, Grace starts writing her confession.  In this twisty-turny domestic thriller, we find out the reasons for the crime of passion that took place on Graces wedding day.  How each one of the four possible victims pushed Grace to her limits, before she pushes one of them to his (or her) death from the luxury cruiser where the wedding reception is being held.  

Meanwhile, in the peaceful Surrey town where Grace works as a newspaper reporter, there are some strange goings on.  Cats go missing, a cyclist dies, and it looks like these events could be connected to an old lady who befriends Grace.

Could there be two murdered living within a few streets of each other?
