Cutch Candles bring comfort and company this Mother’s Day.

New Cheshire-based candle company Cutch has launched a range of natural soy wax, hand poured, luxury scented candles, which ooze sophistication, style, and visual punch.
Cutch’s products are blended with essential oils and fragrances that wrap around the senses. Named after the Welsh term ‘Cwtch’, meaning an embrace of empathy and reassurance, Cutch candles create a sense of wellbeing and relaxation, whilst delivering a sensory embrace.
Cutch was born in June 2020 when the simple, heartening act of a consoling hug had disappeared overnight. Wanting to send that warmth and comfort during a time when you couldn’t wrap your arms around your loved-ones, Covid-entrepreneurs Fiona Crownshaw and Sarah Dickinson started working on their new, home fragrance range.
The candles are themed around key relationships in life. Created in small, hand-poured batches with no variances in scent or throw, the products use lavender, citrus and herb- based oils sourced from ethical suppliers, alongside nuanced and elegant blends of more exotic oils to give a distinctive edge. The hand illustrated packaging is recyclable, and the Cutch team fragrance the box alongside providing branded wrapping and gift tags with every order, to make customers feel embraced from the very moment they open their delivery

Best Mother’s Day gifts to lift her spirits
Delivered to your door from Thedrinksbasket.com


It’s that time of year where we celebrate all things wonderful about our mums especially after the past year we’ve had. With the current lockdown restrictions a pampering day is out of the question. So, what kind of gift do you get for the Wonder Woman you (or your kids) call Mum? Whether she’s into Gin, Prosecco, Champagne or perhaps something non-alcoholic, save yourself some stress and get it delivered to her door, anywhere in the UK.
Be the perfect angel: Whisper Angel Rosé £18.99

This Mother’s Day, she’ll hear nothing but the whispering of her little angels while she enjoys her Whispering Angel Rosé. Clever word play aside, Whisper Angel Rosé is cram-packed with fruity flavours, reasonably priced, and the perfect shade of pink for a Spring celebration like Mother’s Day. Get her rosé all Mother’s Day, she deserves it.
For the “non-alcholic” mum: Seedlip £19.99

The world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit, Seedlip is the perfect alternative for those not drinking and for those looking to gift mum something unique. Seedlip is available in three individual and complex blends including Spice 94, Garden 108 and Grove 42. The non-alcoholic spirit is a welcome alternative to boozier tipples and is the perfect accompaniment to tonics and sodas or swirled through cocktails in highball glasses.
And if you’re planning a Mother’s day picnic, why not try “Seedlip on the Go” with a premixed alcohol-free G&T tonic. The range consists of 3 different flavours; Seedlip Grove 42 with Lemongrass Tonic, Seedlip Spice 94 with Grapefruit Tonic, and Seedlip Garden 108 with Cucumber Tonic.
Showing she’s worth the effort: Lanson Rose Champagne £34.99

If you really want to show your mum just how much she means to you- one sip of Lanson Rose Champagne will do that. This fruity bottle of bubbly is an absolute treat, pretty pale pink with a rose aroma and fresh finish, it’s perfect to sip and relax.
The name says it all: MOM GIN £23.99

Name a more suitably named gin for Mother’s Day, we’ll wait… It has your mum’s name written all over it. Not only that, but it’s also delicious, infused with strawberries and exotic botanical ingredients, a premium pink gin that’s (and we cannot stress this enough) designed for your mum.
Bake it with Baileys
Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur £19.99
A favourite for Mother’s day – this classic Irish cream Liqueur is a perfect addition to any hot drink, make several classic cocktails or why not treat her to a delicious Bailey’s filled dessert?

Bailey’s chocolate mousse recipe
Melt 1 cup of chopped dark chocolate, allow to cool slightly then beat in the egg yolks of 2 medium eggs and 1 tsp of butter. Lightly whip 1 cup of double cream and 7oz of Baileys. Then fold half into the chocolate mix. Whisk the egg whites until just stiff, now fold with the chocolate mixture. Add pieces of chocolate until it melts. Spoon half the chocolate mousse into four glasses, followed by some chocolate shavings and then half the cream. Repeat the layers and top with the remaining chocolate shavings. Put it in the fridge for three hours. No picking! (well, maybe just a bit…) Serve with a flourish – to some impressed oohs and ahs.

BASE Compression:

Sparked by a desire to create a powerful brand with amplified impact, BASE Compression, founded in Australia in 2019, is an authentic compression wear brand crafted with a conscience.

In particular, BASE Compression’s new L.A.B. Recovery Tights and compression socks would make the perfect gift for mothers and grandmothers this Mother’s Day. Not only is compression wear super comfortable, it also assists with the following:

– Reducing and preventing Varicose Veins which can result from pregnancy – compression socks and compression tights are often a prescribed treatment for those suffering from varicose veins. This is because these types of stockings gently squeeze your lower legs, encouraging the blood to return to your heart. This reduces the aching and swelling associated with varicose veins, and can even reduce their appearance.

– Training, recovery and lower leg injuries – compression garments promote blood circulation, reduce muscle fatigue and damage, help your muscles recover faster and assist in regulating body temperature.

Key partnerships for the BASE Compression brand currently include NBL’s Adelaide 36ers, NBL’s Melbourne United, NBL’s Brisbane Bullets, A-League Newcastle Jets, A-League Brisbane Roar, Gold Coast Knights, Magic United and Teekay Athletics.

“Show me you LOVE @HANDLES”
On International Women’s Day – Monday March 8th

For more info click on the image below . . .

Collaboration.
This initiative is open to anybody keen to raise the potential of SportsWomen and the power of WomenSPORT to empower women and girls worldwide by raising the profile of players/team, clubs etc. It acknowledges the importance of women role models in sport and will help them rebuild their fan base as the world gradually comes out of ‘lockdown’ later this year. Organisations representing WiS around the world have committed to this initiative and many see it as a way of developing synergies with other similar organisations in sport.
Please feel free to draw this exciting and achievable opportunity to your followers, family, friends and club mates. It is an easy, simple and cost-effective way to raise profile – one that NGBs, Women’s Sports Feds, charities and fans can all work enthusiastically together on around the world.

Not sure what to get your mum or grandmother?

Tea is always a winner, and how about a tea like Matcha Green Tea that does so many amazing things for her?

We’re talking:

ENERGY ENHANCING: what mum doesn’t need energy to take on whatever the day throws at her right? Matcha provides a natural boost of energy that sustains you over several hours, unlike coffee that provides a short burst then a dip, causing you to crave more.

RELAXING and MOOD LIFTING: taking the time for a cup of tea is quite therapeutic, wouldn’t you agree? Matcha takes it one step further, containing L-Theanine, an amino acid that significantly increases activity in the alpha frequency band which relaxes the mind without inducing drowsiness. It also lifts your mood by elevating levels of GABA, as well as serotonin and dopamine, all great things for keeping happy!

ANTI-AGEING: ah the fountain of youth! What mum doesn’t want that? Matcha contains a massive amount of antioxidants that fight free radicals and helps with preventing oxidation, inhibiting mutation of DNA and helping to restore damaged DNA. Marvellous!

IMMUNE BOOSTING: More than ever we are thinking of our health and keeping our immune systems healthy right? And for our loved ones too! Matcha boosts the immune system due to it’s high antioxidant content, particularly Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) assists your body’s production of T-Cells which reduce inflammation and fight pathogens.;

A packet of Matcha would be a lovely unexpected gift in the mail and we are happy to include a handwritten note from you, just let us know what to write at checkout.

Even better, give everything mum or gran may need to make a frothy cup of Matcha (either with just water or milk or her choice) with our Tea Shaker Sets. There’s even a pretty floral design Tea Shaker, perfect for your loved one!

The world will get a kick out of your front yard kitsch!

One day we were taking a stroll and saw a pair of legs sticking out of a dumpster. We immediately took them home and planted them in our front yard, toes up. They were funny but a bit morbid without the paint. Once the colors were slapped on, they fit right in to our quirky decor bringing smiles and compliments from neighbours and strangers.
One passerby joyfully announced, “Love those Lawn Legs!” And so…WE RAN WITH IT!
All mannequin legs are hand-painted with love and great care by a small musical family living in Florida. We are in an international touring band called ‘Hymn For Her’.
We use water based exterior primer and two color coats with the design on top of that. We add a clear satin top coat for a final layer of protection, which also makes the colors ‘pop’. Lawn Legs will last for many years. Each leg painting is its own unique piece.
Legs are between 29-33 inches long and only require a metal or wood dowel to plant in the lawn or flowerpot. We also offer custom designs.They would make an excellent ‘outside the box’ gift for Mother’s Day or any celebration.
They are fun, whimsical and colorful hand-painted mannequin legs that can be planted in the lawn, garden, planter’s pot, etc…
They even make a great mailbox stand. Order your Lawn Legs today before they run away!

Snow Monkey. Our Anytime Desserts are a creamy blend of only fruits, seeds, and superfoods, making them healthy enough for breakfast (yes, we said breakfast), workout fuel, or guilt-free indulgence.

Give your mother the gift of Snow Monkey this Mother’s Day—it’s a sweet treat that will make her smile while supporting her long-term health and wellness.

While playing D1 sports at Boston University, I started taking a bigger interest in health and nutrition. Now that I was looking at food as fuel for my sport, I became fascinated with discovering optimal foods for performance and recovery. In the middle of this journey, I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. This was a huge curveball for a constantly hungry, twenty-something D1 athlete. I found myself craving indulgences like sweets because there was really nothing available to accommodate the dietary needs of an athlete with Celiac, which was incredibly frustrating.

Not one to easily accept defeat, I took matters into my own hands and started churning my own vegan “ice cream” using bananas, hemp protein powder, and other fruits and seeds. Even though this concoction was supposed to just be for me, my friends and teammates got hooked as well. My weekly batches started disappearing faster than I could make them. It turned out that my recipe, which is now known as Snow Monkey, took on a life of its own.
Snow Monkey is a yummy treat that will leave you feeling great, and it’s the perfect gift for anyone who loves dessert almost as much as they love eating healthy—especially moms.

Rachel graduated magna cum laude from Boston University’s School of Hospitality Administration, where she first created Snow Monkey in her college apartment. Rachel has led Snow Monkey to secure a spot in the prestigious Chobani Food Incubator and expand distribution from 0 to 1,200 retail locations in only 2 years, rightfully landing her a spot on the 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30 list. Rachel is invigorated by work that breaks barriers and paves the way for societal advancements.

Company Overview

It’s been a challenging 12 months – so let’s make this Mother’s Day extra special.
Let Mineheart guide you with some unique and special gifts that stand out from the usual flowers and chocolates!

Mother’s Day Art Gifts
Giving wall art as a gift is a wonderful decision – it shows real thoughtfulness and will show off how well you know your mum and her tastes.

1. Funny Wall Art
If your mum has a good sense of fun our humorous wall art will bring a smile every day. Our latest range of parody wall art is a great choice.

2. Animal wall art
If Mum’s an animal lover we have a very distinguished collection of animal gentry – members of the animal kingdom in all their finery! Take a look at Uncle Walter, a highly decorated military walrus, or Cousin Parker in his beautiful velvet jacket.
If Mum’s taste is less formal, maybe Bernard in his jumper will appeal.

3. Colourful wall art
If you’re looking for a gift that will bring a feeling of brightness and life, a piece of colourful wall art can be the perfect choice. Instead of a bunch of flowers – how about one of Agent X’s floral or Pop artworks, blending the traditional and modern in a high-impact visual style:

Shashi is the heart of the family and the business. She arrived in Birmingham from India on a freezing day in January 1972 wearing only a sari. She was to begin a new life in a new country with her new husband. Knowing no one, Shashi found comfort in using the spices that reminded her of home.
When she retired, Shashi found herself bored and so Sanjay suggested they set up a small business blending spices and packaging them in tins with handmade silk sari wraps, he hadn’t realised it would change his and his mothers’ lives. The small business started in 2012 from Shashi’s kitchen with Sanjay simply taking a picture of his mums spice tin, listing it on ebay, and waking up on Boxing Day to see their first sale.
Since then, Shashi has grown the family business (Spice Kitchen) and developed our signature and award winning product- our sari wrapped Indian spice tins with recipe booklets. Each spice tin comes in a beautiful, colourful handmade, recycled sari wrap, like the one she wore when she first arrived. The recipe booklets help our wonderful customers replicate Shashi’s favourite family recipes- from her family to yours.
Spice Kitchen have expanded and now offer monthly spice subscriptions, options to buy re-fills to keep your spice tin full, as well as spice tins ranging from Africa to the Middle East to all Around the World. Her aim is to bring flavours from around the world to your home.
Shashi never ceases to think of others, when the Covid-19 pandemic hit she immediately turned her hand to making face masks and taking handmade bhajis to exhausted NHS staff. Her food is second to none and she has even cooked up a banquet for the CEO of eBay. She is the queen of short cuts and knows how to make complex Indian recipes less complicated, a skill she has passed onto her son.
Together they create recipes which they post on Instagram and company website www.spicekitchenuk.com for all to enjoy and they are never happier than when surrounded by people and spices in her kitchen.

A gesture with a difference on Mother’s Day, Delicario offer gourmet European delicacies from artisan producers in gift boxes and hampers

Mother’s Day will be a celebration at home this year and luxury brand Delicario www.delicario.com/ have created tailored gifts of fine artisan food and wine in gift boxes and hampers available online for home delivery as the perfect gourmet surprise for mothers to enjoy.

Mum is always giving, but once a year Mother’s Day is the ideal opportunity to let her know she is loved, appreciated and treasured. Particularly this year, sending her a gift box or hamper of indulgent artisan treats created from premium natural and often organic ingredients by family and small-scale producers from the verdant regions across Europe is an inspiring way to say she is special.

Steering away from large-scale producers, each gift box and hamper item is carefully selected for its outstanding flavour and premium natural ingredients, reliant on organic generational farming methods and natural preservation. Each gift box and hamper has been tailored for Mother’s Day with hand-picked delicacies. Priced at £46, Delicario Mother’s Day Sweet Wishes Gift Box is a sweet sensation of Italian lavender biscuits, Piedmont hazelnuts covered in milk chocolate, a fragrant apricot tart from artisan bakery Olivieri 1882, the zestiest of orange marmalades from southern Italy and a beautiful tin of bold English Breakfast tea. Each item is carefully packed in tissue paper, wood wool and presented in an embossed gift box with ribbon. The Delicario We Love Mum Hamper sells at £53 and is a quality small wicker hamper that brings the much missed travel experience home with an artisan journey through flavours of Sicilian green olive paté, mature sheep cheese with sprigs of thyme, the world’s best toasted hazelnuts from Piedmont and aromatic prosciutto, accompanied by a crisp white Sauvignon from the Rioja region.

Moringa, Organic Jojoba and Rosehip Oil! www.desertessence.com/store/oils/moringa-jojoba-rose-hip-oil SRP is $13.99/2oz.

There’s no way to truly thank Moms for all the things they do for us, but here’s a perfectly simple, soothing and pampering Mother’s Day gift she’ll love: Desert Essence’s Moringa, Organic Jojoba and Rosehip Oil! This replenishing and rich blend of botanical oils softens, illuminates and rejuvenates face, neck and hands. Derived from the seeds of the “Tree of Life,” Moringa Oil is prized as one of the most nutrient-dense beauty oils on the planet, containing an abundance of vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids. It, along with sebum-mimicking Organic Jojoba Oil, replenishes skin with balancing moisture. High in essential fatty acids and vitamin C, pure Rosehip Oil enhances the skin-rejuvenating benefits of this luxurious blend. Indulge daily for soft, smooth, glowing results. To purchase, visit www.desertessence.com or select national retail stores. SRP is $13.99/2oz.

How to use Moringa, Organic Jojoba and Rosehip Oil:

Show skin some love: Pour a small amount into the palm and gently work it into face, arms, legs, neck, torso or anywhere that needs some extra hydrating.
The eyes have it: Stress, poor nutrition and lack of exercise can make eyes look tired. Dab a tiny bit of oil on the thin, sensitive tissue around the eyes before bed and wake up with a bit of extra glow!
Treat tresses: depending on the length of your hair, rub a pea sized drop of oil into the palms and comb through freshly washed, wet hair.
Tame flyaways: A little oil is great for super curly or coarse hair to add sheen and gloss, or to tame “frizz” caused by humid air.
Enhance baths: add a quarter sized drop of oil to a hot bath. Pour in some bath salts or bubble bath for a luxurious home soak that won’t dry skin out.

What’s so great about Moringa, Jojoba & Rosehip Oil?

This unique combination of oils works wonders for face, neck and hands. Moringa Oil has protective antioxidant vitamin benefits. Restorative Rose Hip Oil stimulates collagen.
Moringa Oil helps fight skin fatigue to nourish dry, rough skin. Its anti-aging properties help reduce puffiness, purify skin, and boost radiance.
Jojoba Oil is an ideal carrier oil because it’s closest to the skin’s natural sebum. It enhances skin’s texture and glow, leaving it moisturized, soft, and smooth.
Rosehip Oil’s concentration of essential fatty acids GLA helps hydrate and illuminate skin, reducing fine lines and restoring skin elasticity.

Dyson HD01 & HD02 Supersonic Hair Dryer

Hair dryer design hasn’t fundamentally changed since the 1960s. Most still use large, bulky motors that can only fit in the head of the machine. The Dyson Supersonic™ is different. It’s re-thought. It’s small yet powerful digital motor sits in the handle, completely changing the way it works.

A glass bead thermistor measures the air temperature 20 times per second, guarding against extreme heat damage to protect natural shine.

The heart of the machine is the small and powerful digital V9 motor for fast drying. Conventional motors can be slow as 12,000RPM. The Dyson V9 motor is fast, at 110,000RPM, moving 13L of air each second to create a controlled, high velocity airflow.

It’s engineered for balance, with a motor that sits in the handle, for a new kind of drying experience.

It’s acoustically tuned for conversation. The powerful motor is tuned to produce one inaudible frequency. And it’s enveloped by a vibration reduction system, further reducing the transfer of noise between the motor and the case.

About:

What is Quiet Mark?

Quiet Mark is the international approval award programme associated with the UK Noise Abatement Society charitable foundation (est. 1959). Conducting expert acoustic testing and verification of products Quiet Mark has over the past 9 years driven change in manufacturing worldwide to prioritise noise reduction within the design of everyday machines, appliances, technologies and house build materials, creating the first one-stop platform for third-party approved noise reduction solutions for every living space to health and well-being.

Through specialist acoustic measurement and product assessment, Quiet Mark identifies the quietest products in over 70 product categories giving consumers and trade buyers a more informed choice about the sound levels of the products they buy. The Quiet Mark scheme drives designers and manufacturers to reduce sound levels of their products enabling households and workplaces to rebalance the soundscape reducing stressful unwanted noise.

Why Quiet Mark?

“I couldn’t hear my baby crying over the noise of the hairdryer”

The damaging effect of excessive noise on health, productivity and social cohesion is seriously underestimated.World Health Organisation research shows that environmental noise pollution affects mental and physical health and is now second only to air pollution as the world’s largest killer pollutant. Across an estimated population of 340 million people, at least 1 million years of healthy living are lost each year due to noise pollution in Western Europe.

In our fast-paced lives, vibrancy is exciting and necessary. But this heightened state can only be valued if there is also the opportunity to choose the alternatives of calm, quiet and the chance to switch off. Quiet Mark was established to provide a credible, independent scheme that would help consumers easily identify quieter products for the home, at work and for public spaces.

Acoustics Academy for the Building Sector

In February 2020, in a move to further expand its service to tackle noise related problems in building design Quiet Mark launched its Acoustics Academy to include third-party verification of specialist acoustic materials for the building sector including – walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows etc.

This brand-new online platform further equips and empowers architects, builders and designers with a guide to expertly verified leading acoustic solutions for every building application area. For more details – www.acousticsacademy.com

Our Partnerships

Quiet Mark has established a unique alliance of partnerships with leading retailers who are helping shoppers to find the quietest appliance technology available on the market including John Lewis & Partners, Argos Sainsburys, Currys Dixons, ASDA, Lakeland and British Independent Retailers Association.

Quiet Mark is working in partnership with the US Good Housekeeping Institute, one of the most trusted and respected names in America, acoustically testing and reviewing products for the benefit of its readers and raising the bar for quality acoustic design to support consumer health.

By highlighting the distinctive purple Quiet Mark as a trusted symbol, our retail partners are enabling consumers to make a more informed choice about quieter high- performance products they share their homes with. This is a powerful example of collective customer care to combat stress-related noise, an important health and environmental issue.

Our Heritage

The Noise Abatement Society (NAS) was founded in 1959 by the entrepreneurial businessman John Connell OBE who believed that being exposed to excessive noise profoundly affected health, children’s learning, productivity, and general quality of life – he called noise ‘the forgotten pollutant’.

John almost single-handedly lobbied the Noise Abatement Act through Parliament, when in 1960, noise became a statutory nuisance for the first time in the UK. His practical problem-solving included introducing rubber dustbin lids and plastic milk crates to reduce urban disturbance, stopping night flights, and in the early 70’s he commissioned detailed planning for a revolutionary Thames Estuary Airport directing flight paths out to sea.

Today the internationally respected NAS seeks to accelerate change to protect future generations from a worsening aural environment by disseminating new methods of sound management, running an awareness programme for schools, incentivising industry to design low-noise technology and providing the only national help line dedicated solely to the problems of noise. NAS cannot change the human condition, but it can offer practical ways to support those who wish to exercise choice in an otherwise noisy world.
