Mother's Day is nearly here [Sunday 22nd March] and in celebration of the Mother's in and around Rutland, there is no better time to put together a guide full of gift ideas which you can shop locally, in person and online!
As it's also #InternationalWomensMonth, I thought this would be the perfect
opportunity to champion women business owners and female entrepreneurs in and around Stamford and Rutland showcasing products and gift ideas which you can shop locally whilst supporting some truly inspiration women (many who are also Mother, Mums-to-be or Mumpreneurs!) and their businesses.
Don't Settle Petal, Mill Street, Oakham New to Mill St in Oakham and floral/foliage heaven is Don't Settle Petal. A beautiful florist and a really fabulous addition to Oakham - it's also the perfect destination for Mother's Day gifts! Whether that be a quirky house plant, a print for the home, a fresh scented candle or a bouquet of dried 'Forever Flowers' - you'll be spoilt for choice of things to spoil your Mum with.*
