Florence’s Gift Guide #2: For your treasured Mum/Aunt/Grandma

Today’s gift guide is for the other ladies in your life. Last week I did a guide for your sister and best friends, this time we’re tackling older ladies – Mums, aunts, grandmothers. They’ll have one thing in common: they deserve spoiling and are often tricky to buy for. Whether they tell you they ‘don’t want anything at all dear’, or don’t have room for more, or just have everything, here are some sweet ideas to treat them to something useful or easily expendable so that they can’t claim you’ve cluttered up their space!

  • Make sure her feet are always warm… Velvet and sheepskin slipper, Ruby & Ed
  • For the stylish cook… Jelly Apron, Thornback and Peel
  • Because she deserves spoiling… Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin
  • Because all ladies take tea and she can keep the tin… Williamsons Tea Bags, John Lewis
  • Wrap up in style… (Faux) Bear fur snood, Ruby & Ed
  • For Womens hour, Chris Evans, The Archers or even 6 music… DAB digital Radio, John Lewis
  • Beautiful yet usable… Green Herbs Soap, Zara Home
  • Because the internet is still confusing… The Personal Internet Address & Password LogBook, Amazon
  • Keep her hands soft… Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter, Lush

Florence’s Gift Guide #3

Ok, so today it’s time to tackle the men in your life. I’ll be honest, in that this post has filled me with dread. You guys may think I’m some kind of shopping oracle, but in fact buying for the men in my life is ridiculously difficult for me too! I’ve gone with my gut here – the things I love to buy for the men in my life, young and old, and the things they love to receive. I’ve also included some mens gifts I’ve stumbled upon along the way and thought were genius ideas, so I hope they offer some inspiration for you!

  • Plaid PJ Bottom – GAP. (I also always buy men 100% Wool socks from GAP, perfect for inside walking boots or wells when the snow comes!)
  • The obligatory magazine subscription (to Top Gear in my family’s case) but how about BBC Good food?
  • Scarf – GAP
  • Wool and Cashmere lined leather gloves – Banana Republic
  • If he doesn’t have a DAB digital radio yet, make it a Roberts solar radio from The Handpicked Collection. It covers everything from football on Radio 5 Live to The Archers, the shipping forecast to The Live Lounge! 😉
  • Olympics fanatic? How about this cord bracelet make especially for London 2012 at Links of London.
  • They were everywhere last year but really have been one of the best gifts I ever bought Pete. Bring out the big kid in him, whatever his age, with a remote controlled helicopter – a selection can be found on Amazon.co.uk

So have I helped at all with your dilemmas?
