So in no particular order, here are my top Gift Ideas for Mum this Christmas:

All Our Shimmering Skies – 500 Piece Puzzle – Something that I always give mum for Christmas is a nice puzzle. Sanity have such a great selection of puzzles that it can be hard to choose. But my pick for this year is the new puzzle releasing November 24th, ‘All Our Shimmering Skies – 500 Piece Puzzle’. This puzzle is absolutely gorgeous. The imagery of the puzzle is positively stunning, with beautiful vibrant colours re-creating Trent Dalton’s beautiful piece of artwork. After this puzzle has been completed, it would make a beautiful piece of art to frame and display. This one will not disappoint. Pre-order this one today!

Adele’s new album ‘30’ Vinyl or CD – Adele has become one of the most prolific artists of the past 20 years, creating iconic tunes that transcend every age group. Her forthcoming studio album titled ‘30’ releases this year, just in time for Christmas. Releasing November 19th, this new album with no doubt provide your Mum with some new tracks to dance around to. The only downside of this will be hearing your Mum sing this over Christmas, playing the same songs over and over again. The album will be available on both Vinyl and CD, so take your pick, but definitely pick this one up for Mum this Christmas.

Gunpowder Milkshake DVD or Blu-Ray – We all love a solid action, revenge flick, but very few of these actually have a female lead, let alone a team of female heroines and in 2021 we received just that with ‘Gunpowder Milkshake’. This is an action blockbuster tailored towards a female audience and is absolutely a movie that Mum will enjoy. The film has a lot of fun with its insane p[remise and has a great cast of female characters including Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Carla Gugino, Michelle Yeoh and Joanna Bobin. This movie will make a nice edition to Mums collection and will be a great present for Mum this Christmas.

Friends Forever (Hardcover Book) – I am sure like my Mum, you Mum would love a good book, especially one that highlights something they truly love.

This is a great coffee table book and a great collector’s item for fans of the show. It allows you to explore the show without watching it and sometimes that is a lot of fun, especially as you can insert your own memories of watching these episodes for the first time whilst reading it.
