Are you ready for Mother's Day? Yes it's time to be pampered/get a last minute panic purchase *delete as appropriate* and with another celebration just around the corner I've decided to get organised for once and opt out of the classic chocs and flowers gift. Instead i'm going to treat my gorgeous mama to something a little bit special with a homemade hamper full of wonderful goodies that suit her down to a tee. 

When I was a kid I used to love creating special hampers, taking time to pick out things I thought my family would love with my weekly saved £2.50 pocket money. Ok to be honest they might not have appreciated the hubba bubba gum and stickers but the thought was there and this time round I wanted to create something that celebrated the adventurer in my mama, as she taught me to always want to see the world and explore.

We moved A LOT as a child, I went to various schools around the UK, spent three years growing up in Perth in Australia, this is probably where my love of vitamin D comes from! After my road trip to Spain last year my mam has been keen to visit the Spanish coast so I couldn't wait to surprise her with an early Mother's Day gift. I took her to the Ivy Brasserie in Clifton as I knew she would love the interior and it didn't disappoint.

I decided to create a Mother's Day hamper with a twist, using a gold metal basket and filling it with things to inspire her trip such as this fab 36 Hours in Europe book, a new strap for my mum's Fitbit so she can count her steps and not to mention a coffee travel mug to keep her going! I also loved the idea of adding in a travel wallet for them to keep everything. Oh and postcards so they don't forget to write and make me jealous ;) Plus it was great being able to pick up all these items from john Lewis.

I tied it all together with wrapping from Paperchase and handed it over with a glass of bubbly. I knew my parents were planning a trip around mid March so I didn't want to risk missing out on my travel inspiration.

My mum loved her presents and thought the were so thoughtful *brownie points to me* and I loved making her happy and seeing her smile. I keep this photo of my mum at 16 by my bed to remind me to always seek the adventure and always be brave. I'm so happy to have worked with John Lewis to create a memorable Mother's Day!

Are you planning anything for Mother's Day? Are you or your mum an adventure/gardener/crafter/fashionista? I'd love to hear what type of hamper you would create!
