Bargain mothers day gift ideas
Not long till 6 March which is mother’s day this year. I love this day as I get a lie in, breakfast in bed, flowers, chocs and maybe a nice high tea somewhere, or a surprise gift. Here’s a round up of gift ideas and they are less than £20 each.
All because the lady loves Milk Tray
A classic that if you get dad to dress up in black can be delivered by your own Milk Tray Man. I am a massive Cadbury fan, from visiting the factory tour a number of times, to my fix of Dairy Milk, so frankly a box of Milk Tray has to top my list. The iconic box is bursting with tempting flavours, from the old classics of Hazelnut Swirl and Perfect Praline, to future favourites Apple Crunch and Salted Caramel Charm. From the second the much-loved purple box is opened to the last delicious bite, Cadbury Milk Tray is sure to bring a smile to your mum’s face this Mother’s Day. Whether it’s the perfect way to say ‘I love you’ or just a token of your appreciation on this special day, make Cadbury Milk Tray your go-to gift this Mother’s Day. Cadbury Milk Tray is available nationwide in multiple box sizes from 78 g to 530 g, and RRP is from £1 to £12.99.
Gorgeous Zippo candle lighter
No longer does mum need to burn her fingers with this nice smart looking lighter. With the established Zippo name, this lighter has a nice safety aspect where you have to hold in a button on the back as well as slide the catch forward on the front, so that lighter can’t be accidentally turned on. It’s easy to fill and to adjust height of flame. Am sure this will make any candle loving mum happy for many years. But it at Zippo for £13.95.
