– Stylish Mother’s Day Gift


metm18While my brilliance may be legendary (in family circles), the truth is that I can’t yet read, nor put pen to paper. But that doesn’t stop me from appreciating the wonder of the written word.


And, when that word is written on a beautiful card or paper … I’ll devour it. And there’s more than a grain of truth in that.


After all, there are times when a hurriedly abbreviated text message may not say it all. Or sending your thoughts to an already full inbox just goes against the grain. Well, so I’ve heard.


metm_16marchThis Mother’s Day, I’m all about the power of words. Not for me the thrill of a ‘mama’ or a ‘dada’. It’s my mummy’s fine hand I want to feature – set against this gorgeous writing set. (Not writing myself out of the script entirely, my gift is slightly reminiscent of the nursery, but très chic and oh-so-grown up. Just like my mummy.)


It’s from the enchanting online stationery boutique, Papergrain –who are single-handedly making snail mail stylish again with a fabulous selection of cards, writing sets, baby albums and luxury journals not readily available on the high street.


Making it easy for you to choose a gift that says it all, if not in so many words.
