The Handpicked Collection

The Handpicked Collection is an online and mail order gift company that specialises in unusual and imaginative gift ideas. I discovered their Christmas catalogue back in November and was highly impressed not only by the range of products available, perfect for even those hard-to-buy-for friends and relatives, but also the prices.

As they explain on their website : "When buying unique gifts, or a treat for yourself, you want to know you're getting something special. This is why we founded The Handpicked Collection. We love the challenge of finding unusual gift ideas, and want you to enjoy shopping for gifts as much as we do. Our unique expert panel helps keep us on the right track, finding stylish and great value presents. So here it is, our award-winning gift  shop, offering great customer service plus time saving extras like our gift ideas finder service. Happy shopping!"

I'll be reviewing something from the collection shortly but in the meantime, here are their top picks for Mother's Day gifts. (Yes, I know we've barely packed away the Christmas decorations but what happened to your New Year's resolution to be more organised this year ?!)

I Love You Mummy Heart Dish
A lovely daily reminder in the form of a little dish, perfect for her favourite earrings.

Seed Packets Organiser
Green-fingered Mums would love this retro tin for bringing order to their wild, untamed collection of seed packets.  

Special Places to Stay – British Bed & Breakfast
If she’s spent many a year providing this service for you, why not scour the pages of this book and return the favour?

Black + Blum Candelabra Loop
True elegance for the hostess with the mostest. 
Tip: if you get her two, she can hook them together for a stunning centre piece.

Emma Bridgewater Big Love Tin
This will make sure you’re the first person in her mind the next time she bakes a batch of cupcakes.

Glass Photo Cube

There’s a reason this design has been around for decades.  Fill it with three favourite pictures and she’s sure to put it in pride of place.

Mummy Rules Mug

Well, this just formalises what we all know!

The Handpicked Collection are also having a New Year Sale which will continue until the end of the month.  Unlike many of the high street stores who use the sales as a way of churning out all the old rubbish that nobody wants even at reduced prices, they’ve just added the new category Bestsellers where you can get your hands on forty of their bestselling gifts at bargain prices of up to 40% off. Here are some highlights. I love those Marrakech lanterns.

 Caterpillar Bud Vase £9.95 £7.96

Silver-Plated Jug – Large £49.95 £39.96
Silver-Plated Jug – Mini £24.95 £19.96

Natural Slate Cheeseboard £14.95 £11.96

Marrakech Cream Lantern – Large £15.95 £11.17
Marrakech Cream Lantern – Small £9.95 £6.97
