Well here we are, just 50 days to Christmas (who’s on the count down with me?!) and I’m determined to be super organised this year! I’m lucky in that the only woman I have to buy for is my lovely Mum, but I also know that Gaz needs more than a few ideas for gifts for this Mummy too so hopefully I can send him in this direction!
Plus not only have I got all of these lovely ideas, but you can win several of these items at the end of the blog post!
1. Lazydogz Slippers
When it comes to Mums you can’t go wrong with new slippers and these gorgeous grey suede mules from Lazydogz are amazing! Available in a choice of two colours, they are made from the softest suede with a luxurious shearling lining plus memory foam footbed for extra comfort! They come presented in a gorgeous (and free!) gift box with a gift tag and ribbon and honestly, they are probably the comfiest and warmest slippers I’ve ever tried.
With a RRP of £60 they don’t aren’t cheap but as soon as you try them you realise they are worth every penny!
