A few tips if you’re wondering what to get for mom, or for another special lady in your life. Offer a heavenly blend of tea and some beautiful cups. White tea “Avec les Anges” from Tea for Two. Cups are second hand. Pamper her with a Korres face cream or a luxurious wool and silk throw from Coco-Mat. Or get her a book to read during the holidays. Another idea that can’t fail is a homemade hamper: gather some of her favourite goodies from the bio shop. Or offer a Gift Card: a good present can also be a service – offer to baby-sit, cook a three course meal, give a massage or offer to clean the house.
I remember when I was a kid my dad went to cut down a tree from our family forest and the day before Christmas eve it was brought in from the cold and decorated. And the smell of winter green filled the living room. This year I have my own Christmas tree, in a pot, looking all super cute. Mini Christmas tree from The Garden at Powerscourt.
