This year my Mum has a themed gift. It all started with a random comment she made to my Sister about a towelling dressing gown that she had seen. It would be the perfect dressing gown for using to get try after a shower as she could potter about her home getting breakfast and doing a few chores. My Sister and I did that trick where we made a mental note about the possible future gift possibility and then when we were alone discussed who was going to get it. It was decided that I would buy the dressing gown and so I set about looking for the great towelling dressing gown that she had seen. I eventually found it, but didn't buy it. As much as I love my Mum a towelling dressing gown that costs £50 isn't going to be brought... So I set off finding a second towelling dressing gown that didn't cost £50. And I found one! In Ikea of all places. The Snoa Rutan is a bath robe with tartan trim. This is works well as my Mum is Scottish and although it isn't her Tartan hardly anything that she owns in tartan is her families variety!
I knew then that the only thing missing from the theme was Slippers and this is where the Slippers from Clifford James came in. The review of which you can read about at Slippers for my Mum! The slippers were chosen by my Mum, so although they won't be a surprise she will be very pleased to have them and I think they add to the theme up quite nicely don't you?!
With a few other additions of some shower gel, some shampoo, conditioner and some chocolate treats my Mum's gifts are good to go. They are mostly wrapped, (the chocolate isn't) and are all ready with cryptic clue gift tags to add to the Christmas Day fun.
