*KLAXON* It's Mother's Day this Sunday! If you have if you have a mum, mother-in-law, stepmum, grandmother or someone else you think is like a mum to you then it's getting near last call for buying that something special. The shops are currently awash with all things pink and pastel when it comes to Mother's Day presents but if that's not for you there are plenty of other options.
One thing I love to do is to look through the catalogues that fall out of the weekend supplements. You can trawl round the shops for hours looking for something a little different or quirky but never find it. I do find one of the problems is that shops do get obsessed with seasonal events. So the Valentine's gifts in pink and red have just been cleared out to be replaced with floral colours of Mother's Day. With this in mind I've been looking through the selections on Qwerkity.
Going through Qwerkity there's arguably something for all ages and tastes. There's practical housewares and gardening gadgets, books, jewellery, clothing, and some tasty little food gifts. If you're needing quick delivery at an extra cost next day and designated Saturday delivery is available.
I went for The Flavour Thesaurus. As you can see online there's a very handy star review system for each item. For The Flavour Thesaurus there's ten reviews and it has scored 5 of 5 stars in every single review. If you've ever wondered if one ingredient goes with another then this is the book for you. Not only will it give you the thumbs up when it comes to flavour combinations but also suggestions for recipes to use them in. You may be someone who likes to try out new tastes or just need to enliven your current repertoire. If you've had to deal with food gluts such apples, tomatoes and courgettes you'll be able to find new and exciting ways of using them up. All in all a great cookbook with a difference and one you'll spend hours looking through for new ideas.
Have you bought your Mother's Day present yet? Do you struggle to find gifts throughout the year?
