What a year. Mums, mamas, mummies, mums to be, mums far away, mums who were, mums who yearn to be, we’ve all been tested on an emotional rollercoaster bigger than we could ever imagine. So if you’re looking for a fabulous gift to say ‘you’re brilliant’ to a mummy in your life then we’ve got some great ideas from Devon independents in our Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
What is so lovely about buying from buying from independents is that you know the time and effort, but most importantly LOVE, that has gone into each product. Not only to making it the very best it can be, but also down to the details of the packaging. Each product in our Mother’s Day gift guide is a real treat, and each company holds many ethical values and are doing their bit for the environment too. Thanks for supporting Devon local, and thanks for supporting mum businesses this Mother’s Day.
