Christmas Gift Guide for Mom’s

Last of the Christmas Gift Guides, but certainly not most least, is one for all the Mom’s out there. Dad’s, this is where you enter. It’s time to spoil the fabulous Momma of the house with a little something, although a gorgeous cup of coffee or tea in bed would be equally as appreciated. From smaller stocking filler treats to bigger ticket items, there’s something for every Mom. With just over TWO weeks to go, let’s get shopping!

 

  1. Always a winner in my books, a fabulous scented candle (I’m a bit of a candle snob, I’ll admit). This one is from the Stoneglow, Infusions range (Zingy verbena, lemon, lime and grapefruit are balanced by delicious orchard fruits. Cinnamon and clove bring warmth whilst a rich patchouli base note brings a touch of the exotic) Joyous – The Whimsical Whippet – R517.50 – http://thewhimsicalwhippet.co.za/product/joyous-verbena-spiced-woods-tumbler/
