If you're looking for Mother's Day inspiration, here are six ideas that we think your mum would absolutely love:
College Green natural soaps are handmade in small batches using a traditional cold process technique. We combine six skin loving oils and butters, pure essential oils and spring water that runs through our village near Stroud, in the Cotswolds. They are palm oil free, rich in hydrating glycerine and have a rich, creamy later that is kind to skin. Individual soaps are wrapped in artisan Cambridge Imprint paper (£5), or available as a set of four, in a gift box (£20).
2. A glass jar of aromatherapy bath soak
For the mum who loves a bath, College Green bath soaks are pure bliss. A combination of three different salts, a blend of pure essential oils and skin soothing colloidal oatmeal make the perfect combination for a luxurious soak. Choose from Sleep Easy, Rosy Posy, Calming or Happy. And our Warming foot soak is a great option for active mums and those without a bath. Each bath soak comes in either an amber glass jar, or Kraft waxed pouch. And we've made a single-bath pouch that's perfect for popping in a card (£3).
College Green candles are made from pure soy wax and premium fragrance oils for a cleaner, soot-free burn. Available in amber glass jars, they will add a warm, cosy glow to any room. Available in small or large three-wick amber glass jars, or as a set of four in a gift box.
4. A fragranced wax melt gift set
For something a little different, why not give a wax melt gift set? Each comes with everything needed for hours of room fragrance: a ceramic wax warmer, two tea lights and a selection of wax melts, each one infused with a premium fragrance and dried flowers. There are several styles of wax warmer to choose from (£20-£25)
All our products are available in gift sets: a set of four handmade soaps; a soap, soap dish, bath soak and mini candle; four amber glass candles or wax warmer and melts. Make your gift set extra special by adding a Japanese-style furoshiki gift wrapping: it's a beautiful vintage scarf that's a present in itself. Just add `wrapping' after you've selected the gift set you'd like (extra £5)
6. A College Green gift voucher
Can't choose? Why not let your mum choose the gift she'd really love herself? College Green gift vouchers are instantly available. Perfect if you're not sure whether she'd prefer Sleep Easy or Rosy Posy bath soak, or a wax warmer gift set or set of four soy wax candles (from £10)
All our gifts are available from our website (choose 1st or 2nd class Royal Mail delivery), with local pick up available for customers that live nearby or from Stroud Farmers' Market on Saturday 26 March (the day before Mother's Day!)
