Winter seems to have finally made way for spring, bringing a freshness, optimism and promise of summer…just in time for Mother’s Day this Sunday!
If you haven’t bought a gift and live in or near Lewes then I have some lovely last minute gift ideas from the local independent stores in my home town.
A piece of unique , beautiful jewellery from Alexis Dove like these gorgeous gold vermeil clamshell hook earrings. Perfect for dreaming of summer!
A pretty, vintage treasure from Closet and Botts
A posy of fresh spring flowers from Lewesiana, my favourite florist.
A lyrical fragrance made by blending and sourcing exceptional raw materials from around the world from local Lewes parfumier, Nancy Meiland
For tea loving Mums VRAC is all about high quality crafted teas, sourced in small batches, whole leaf, handpicked and beautifully packaged.
A gift card to spend at lovely online store The Future Kept run by local East Sussex couple Jeska and Dean Hearne.
A bottle of local organic fine wine from independent wine merchant Symposium
A delicious Mother’s Day breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Limetree Kitchen
A visit to Charleston House which reopens March 25th. Charleston is just outside of Lewes and was the home and country meeting place for the writers, painters and intellectuals of the Bloomsbury group. The gardens are beautiful and it has a lovely tearoom.
To all fellow mothers I hope you enjoy your special day!
“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dates all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” – Agatha Christie
