Make This Mother's Day A Handmade Celebration With These Gifts From Handmade At Amazon!


Good Afternoon Lovelies, 

Mother’s Day is coming up and there is nothing like a handmade gift! Whether it be a card, gift or better yet a cake, I always think when someone has taken the time to actually make you something there is so much more love in it. It feels more personal!

Every year, I like to treat my mum to a goodie bag of gifts full of films, bath bits, magazines and a homemade coffee and walnut cake, as they are her favourites. In fact, it is pretty much always a cake filled day aha, as she starts with croissants, before going on to cakes and biscuits. All of which I like to make with good presentation and fun tools.

This year, I will definitely be making her the same cake, but with the help of Handmade at Amazon, who have some amazing options to store the cake and make the cake in. I mentioned a few items from them the other day on my Amazon guide, but I wanted to share more on how they can help you bake the perfect treats for your mum this mother’s day.

Whether you are making them with her, with your kids to celebrate the day or with fellow family members, you will definitely need to pick up these great items to help make the day even more perfect…

Handmade at Amazon English Dinner Apron by Victoria Eggs, £22: Making breakfast or classic dishes for your mum on the big day should be done in this apron! Highlighting all the dishes that you associate with home, this apron will make you look fancy and remind you of what your mum makes best as well.

Handmade at Amazon London Kids Aprons by Victoria Eggs, £15: If you are cooking with kids or your mum is getting stuck in with her grandchildren on baking dishes with them, make sure the whole family is kitted out and save on washing with these very stylish aprons. Fun for everyone with delicious treats at the end of it.

Handmade at Amazon Cake Tin by Jonny's Sister, £42: It may seem a little bit expensive for a cake tin, but the quality, look and design of this tin, means your mum can relieve Mother’s Day for a long time, as it stores the treats perfectly and tightly, after baking them. Cupcakes, big cakes, biscuits and more will make your mums day every day and no one else will be able to eat them as they have her name all over them!

These brilliant gifts will make for a fancy day, which has that handmade charm to them, as Handmade at Amazon have made sure that all of their gifts are made with care and attention. I am seriously debating whether to buy my mum the cake tin to store her coffee and walnut cake lovelies because I think it will look so fancy in our kitchen and remind her of the big day. Plus, it will mean that she can tell everyone to stay away from it.

To help you with your homemade gifts, I thought I would share the recipe I use to make the cake, which is a good old Mary Berry one lovelies. You honestly can’t go wrong with it…
