Top 5 Gift Ideas for Mum from Country Style Editor, Victoria Carey

Top 5 Gift Ideas for Mum from Country Style Editor, Victoria Carey. Her biggest tip - anything handmade!

1. A thoughtful handmade card

I still have a collection of ones my son has given me over the years.

2. Fresh flowers

I love bunches of flowers that look like they have just been picked from a lovely country garden. Something simple like roses mixed with herbs like rosemary then wrapped in brown paper and tied with string.

3. A handmade teapot

Preferably made by someone who I know something about. Bridget Bodenham who is based near Daylesford in country Victoria does beautiful work.

4. Champagne and a homecooked meal

A good bottle of Champagne never goes astray.

5. Country Style magazine

If you like all these things, then you will definitely like a subscription to Country Style.
