Mothering takes many forms and I am grateful to the many strong women who have played a maternal role in my life.
From teachers, to bosses, to friends, female relatives, to my sisters and of course, my own mother; women have provided, in ways big and small, love, support and guidance.
I have been educated by women, nurtured by them, cared for by them and consoled by them. They have mothered me.
Mothering is far more than the relationship between women and their daughters; it encompasses ‘kin building’, the connections women make with other women, which create networks of care and weave webs of support.
I had many different mother figures when I was growing up, aside from my own biological mother; Sharon Norman, Judith Mould, Sarah Hopkins... to name just a few. These women welcomed me into their homes and treated me like I was one of their own, on the vague recommendations of their daughters (my friends), despite barely knowing me. I sincerely hope that I am as generous and open-minded to my children’s ‘lost friends’ in the future.
It is with mothering in mind that I created The Small Home Gift Sets. These new gift sets for women are a way to show gratitude; to nurture the nurturers; and to thank those whose reliable acts of care and kindness, which - especially as children – sometimes go unnoticed, but are always, always felt.
In turn, our Luxury Gift Sets seek to add small pleasures to a day, in ways which can be easy to overlook, but are always, always felt.
Perhaps it’s the calming cuppa in a pleasing artisan ceramic mug; or sinking into the softest sheepskin slippers which signals you are home and ready to relax.
Presented in beautiful, elegant packaging, these gift sets are as joyful to give, as they are to receive and offer the perfect way to celebrate mothering in all its forms.
