My Mothers Day

I’m quite lucky that my husband is very good at buying presents. He knows me pretty well and I always do quite well out of birthday, Christmas, Mothers Day etc. So when I was asked to review a Mothers Day gift from the lovely folks at Not On The High Street I let him take the free reign and choose something or me – and this was what he picked as my gift: 

gin tea cup

Gin anyone?

And I absolutely loved it!! They picked me this uber gorgeous gin tea cup and saucer. It can in extremely secure packaging ensuring that it reached me in perfect condition. The saucer is dotted and the cup has a gold ring around the bottom. I have always wanted a proper bone china cup and I have always had to have a cup that is MINE so this is absolutely perfect. I feel ever so posh with a saucer but it’s something I absolutely love and will definitely be using it – probably for a cuppa with my bacon sandwich  (classy as ever eh?!) It’s a quirky, cool and different type of gift and one that most Moms would giggle at and absolutely love.


The cup is created by designer Yvonne Ellen who is an English designer and the items are made in England. Yvonne also has a wider range of products available on Not On The High Street including a vodka version of this mug and some pretty awesome animal plates! There’s a whole host of other super cute gifts for you or your own Mom that aren’t your stereotypical flowers, chocolate and bubble baths. gin tea cupMake this the year you think outside of the box and buy a very individual unique one off gift – trust me, it’ll get you major Mom brownie points.


Express Next day delivery is available so if you’re starting to panic as Mother’s Day is just around the corner (15th March in case you can’t even remember that!) – RELAX – do not fear; gin tea in this teacup will solve all ails!
