There are some lovely collections at the National Trust Online Shop and my mother particularly enjoyed the scarf I gave her.
It's called the National Trust Sussex Downs Sunrise Scarf 2018 and Mum loved it :-) She adores coming to stay in Sussex and I thought it would be a lovely momento of her stay here...
There's a bag you can also buy to go with it - or you could just get the National Trust Sussex Downs Tote Bag for £25...
Our Giving Gifts News Blog - Treat yourself and or a friend!
Here's a lovely gift idea if you're looking for a wedding present or anniversary present for a happy couple...a beautiful momento of their day
They are presented in a beautifully branded box. You can personalise the flutes with a message in up to 54 characters and use Getting Personal's innovative preview function to see how your personalisation will look. They are made of crystal and you should hand wash them only. The bottle of champagne doesn't come with them but you could always treat them to a bottle to go with the flutes.
There are other personalised gifts which may suit too at Getting Personal - a pair of whisky tumblers and wine glasses.
The world-famous Wimbledon tennis tournament starts on Monday 2nd July this year :-)
It really is an incredible tournament, and the stamina and strength of the tennis players is quite something. Day after day the matches go on - weather permitting - strawberries are consumed, Pimms are downed, and everyone has their own player they are supporting.
Why not treat yourself and a loved one to a Wimbledon Tour for Two?
Virgin Experience Days are giving you the chance to tour around the Centre Court as part of a small group, the picnic terraces and Water Gardens with their view of London.
And the great thing about tours like this is that you can go to areas that are usually out-of-bounds to the public, including the Press Interview Room and the Millennium Building.
Plus you can explore the hsitory of the sport in the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Musum which hosts an array of tennis memorabilia, a 200 degree cinema and special effects which create a "ghost" of John McEnroe.
It's not for anyone who has mobility problems as there's quite a lot of walking and the minimum age for this experience is 16.
Here are a couple of gifts garden loving Dads can enjoy for Father's Day and thereafter - and a couple come with a personalised touch!

So Tree2mydoor.com (who I've used before and they are really good) have these personalised gifts which may be just the thing for Dads who love gardening and gardens...There's a Personalised Head Gardener Polo Shirt - you can add your dad's name (up to 15 characters) and there are several sizes to choose from...

I've used Bunches.co.uk several times before and they've given me great service. I've ordered online and when I've had to get help on the phone, they've been really helpful :-)
