Whether it’s mum on the school run, the mum driving to work every day or the mum who doesn’t feel as confident behind the wheel as she used to, THINKWAREhas the perfect gift idea for her.

All of THINKWARE Dash Cameras provide a parking mode when installed with a hardwire cable, which can give mum extra peace of mind when they’re not in the car. All of the models provide safety camera alerts either through the in-built GPS or external GPS antenna and they all come with an SD card included.

With its extensive range of dash cam cameras there is a product suitable for every type of driver, allowing you to gift her with a present that will keep her safe on the roads – and she doesn’t need to be a tech expert to use them.

THINKWARE F70 – starting from £79 or £99 with GPS antenna

· Small and discreet

· Motion and impact event recording in parking mode for up to 2 days (when installed with HW cable)

· Safety camera alerts (with external GPS antenna)

· 8 GB SD card

· 140 degree wide angle lens

· Front vehicle departure warning

The small and compact design of F70 keeps it discreet and with THINKWARE’s new mounting bracket it can be hidden away from the driver’s field of view behind the rear-view mirror, ensuring camera placement adheres to safety laws.

The THINKWARE F70 Dash Cam has an image sensor that enables the device to capture Full HD video – this means it gives the driver a reliable witness in the event of any incident. The camera also has a wide dynamic range sensor and 140-degree wide angle lens, which minimises blind spots and ensures all events are caught on camera.

A built-in Active Impact Monitoring system uses a 3-axis G-Sensor to monitor and differentiate incidents based on various recording modes. A perfect camera for someone who wants to feel a bit safer when they are on the road.

Lastly, when stationary at a junction or in traffic, the Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW) feature provides intelligent guidance which alerts the driver, with a clicking sound, that the car in front has started to move.

ENGLISH SPIRIT COMBINES TWO CLASSIC FLAVOURS TO CREATE THE ULTIMATE TREAT FOR MOTHER’S DAY

English Spirit, one of the UK’s original small batch distillers, has created a special, limited edition Chocolate Rose Liqueur to mark this coming Mother’s Day (31 March 2019). The stunning liqueur combines the two traditional flavours of rich cocoa and fragrant rose, resulting in a classic tasting tipple that has been honed to perfection and which makes for the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

Retailing at £18, English Spirit’s Chocolate Rose Liqueur is available to purchase online at EnglishSpirit.uk/shop, with all orders taken before 12pm on Friday 29 March guaranteed delivery in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday 31 March 2019.

Demonstrating English Spirit’s incomparable quality credentials and in line with the brand’s high production standards, the Chocolate Rose Liqueur has been created from scratch using English Spirit’s own scratch-distilled sugar beet vodka as a base for the drink. Single distilled and unfiltered – a rarity within the UK – the vodka retains the flavor notes of cream soda from the sugar beet and boasts exceptional smoothness, which is testament to the skill and experience of Master Distiller, Dr John Walters.

Walters commented: “I wanted to create a small batch liqueur that would make an ideal Mother’s Day gift for everyone’s special lady. Our English Spirit Chocolate Rose liqueur brings together two classic flavours often associated with a traditional gift and which are absolutely bursting with flavor, whilst also being unbeatably smooth and sumptuous at the same time.”

English Spirit’s Chocolate Rose liqueur is small batch and only a limited quantity has been produced for retail. The liqueur is 22% ABV and is presented in a 35cl bottle, with the limited-edition English Spirit label also featuring an original illustration by Cornish illustrator and English Spirit ambassador, Rosie Barlow.

NOVELTEA

Boozy Brew | Alcoholic Tea

ABV: 11%

RRP: £24.99 (70cl)

URL: https://www.noveltea-drinks.com/

Why NOVELTEA? Boozy brew mixologists NOVELTEA offer three ready-to-drink alcoholic teas, each one inspired by travel and culture.

Products:
The Tale of Tangier – an infusion of Moroccan green mint tea with spearmint, dried lemongrass, dried apple, blackberry leaves and Caribbean white rum

The Tale of Earl Grey – an infusion of black Earl Grey tea with British gin and botanicals

The Tale of Oolong – an infusion of Chinese Oolong Tea with Scotch Whisky

Britain is a nation of tea lovers. After water, it’s the most consumed beverage and it’s not surprising – after all; what problems can’t be solved with a cup of tea? Bored by ‘incremental innovations in established product categories such as new flavoured gins and new craft beers’, founders Efferoth and Passia are on a mission to disrupt the drinks industry and create a new category in the alcohol market – tea with spirit.

All three tales are completely natural products, made with real tea extract and devoid of any artificial colours. NOVELTEA’s 10-hour cold-brewing process draws out bitter tannins to deliver a smooth finish that also enhances the ingredient’s natural sweetness, before pairing with gin, rum or whisky.

The level of tea vs. spirit is 1/3 spirit to 2/3 tea

Limited Edition Mother’s Day Hamper: Created exclusively for the occasion, this hamper contains a selection of our finest pink products, beautifully presented in a pink wicker heart-shaped basket.

She’ll be spoilt for choice with our all-butter Classic Fudge and delicate Rose Petal Jelly, Sherbet Pips, Cranberry Crumbles and Chocolate Wafer Crispies. Treat her to something she really deserves this Mother’s Day. £40. https://www.cartwrightandbutler.co.uk/c-b-just-for-you-mother-s-day-hamper.html

The Travelwrap Company has created the perfect cashmere wrap for mothers everywhere – stunningly soft, fantastic quality, traditional craftsmanship and made in Scotland from sustainable and ethically sourced yarns.

The Travelwrap mill in Scotland is one of the longest established in the United Kingdom and internationally renowned for producing the finest cashmere pieces. The cashmere itself comes from one of the remote areas of Inner Mongolia and the mill actively participates in sustainable programmes to help prevent over-intensive grazing.

The luxurious softness of the cashmere is partly because only the longest haired fibres from the downy undercoat of the cashmere (originally Kashmir) goat are milled in the knitting process. Washing the cashmere in pure Scottish Highland water ensures an immaculate finish.

The quality of the cashmere and fine craftsmanship combined with an extensive range of vibrant colours are at the heart of every Travelwrap, making this niche British brand very special indeed.

The wraps have been spotted on some of the best dressed celebrities, from Kate Moss to Charlotte Tilbury and our favourite young Royals, and are perfect for the home, for everyday wear or for travel, whether keeping warm from airplane aircon (and avoiding the germ ridden airline blankets!) or throwing over a sundress in the South of France.

‘Cay wrap’, £229 available from www.thetravelwrapcompany.com.

Bad posture? Two leading companies share a commitment to help fix this epidemic

FACEBOOK | TWITTER | YOUTUBE

Tim Everett, an Osteopath with over 20 years’ experience, believes that the unique Swedish design and user comfort is responsible for the huge popularity. The light weight, discreet posture brace is a global market leader for posture correction.

The Mediroyal Exto Light which was previously available only in black, is being launched into the UK market in a new additional beige colour by The Bad Back Company. The light weight, discreet and easily adjustable brace is a global market leader in both comfort and posture correction. Tim Everett, an Osteopath with over 20 years’ experience, believes that the unique Swedish design and user comfort is responsible for the huge popularity of the EXTO Light.

Posture continues to attract a lot of attention from the media, industry, and the general population. Tim Everett founder of The Bad Back Company explains that there are many causes and consequences of an inefficient and poor posture.

“Many people are concerned that a bad posture not only looks bad but may be contributing to their complaints of neck, shoulder and particularly upper back pain. I see many people in my osteopathic practices that have pain and discomfort directly attributable to poor posture. The causes may be varied but I feel that our sedentary lifestyles and increased use of mobile technology significantly contributes to an increased kyphosis, forward head posture and resultant loss of a natural spinal alignment.

Another painful and leading cause of an increased thoracic spine kyphosis is Osteoporosis. As osteopenia and osteoporosis develop it typically results in a rounded upper back and shoulders which places a progressive and additional mechanical strain on the spine and supportive muscles. The EXTO light is designed to assist with supporting the spine of those with the early signs and painful symptoms of osteoporotic postural changes.

Tim explains “Whilst I fully understand that these adaptive muscular patterns develop over a period of time often in response to be being hunched over our ‘devices’ or due to changes in our bone density associated with osteoporosis I also understand that leaving the posture unchecked is most likely to lead to further accumulative postural pain and deformity. This is why I like the EXTO light. It is an easy to use support with high patient compliance that is designed to help correct and promote a more natural and efficient posture and a healthy posture is almost certainly a less painful posture.”

Industry also recognises that musculo-skeletal type pain driven by poor and inefficient posture contributes to significant costs to the economy. It is estimated that chronic back pain costs the UK economy £billions every year.

Mediroyal and The Bad Back Company continue to work together sharing a strong commitment to help solve the growing problem of bad posture.

The EXTO light posture support brace retails at £49.99, but The Bad Back Company is offering the product at a special discounted price of £41.99 and is available with free delivery within the United Kingdom.

Click through to the website for full specifications and more information on this one-of-a-kind posture support brace.

About The Bad Back Company:

Managing Director Tim Everett, is a practising Osteopath, and The Bad Back Company is regarded as a vital resource for those suffering with musculoskeletal pain. The online brand offers an extensive range of pain management products, all of which have been thoroughly tested and approved by Tim and his dedicated team for their effectiveness and value for money.

Tim Everett also writes regular blogs and articles to help you understand your pain or injury and these can be seen on the website.

Luxury car hire service, Driverso, offers instant online booking for the largest collection of luxury cars in Europe.

Formerly named Vroomerz, Europe’s most varied luxury car fleet has rebranded, expanding to include over 400 new models from 20 suppliers. Over 500 customers from 40 countries have booked a luxury car online with Driverso in the past year, each one personally delivered to their chosen location.

Driverso takes any hassle out of booking the luxury car of your needs, with quick and simple booking online, clear pricing and availability, and detailed information and imagery for each car. Customers are guaranteed to receive the exact make and model as selected on the website.

Preferential prices are offered for all Relax & Restore treatments, and the new spa days start from £65.

All Relax & Restore treatments have been specially designed for people living with or recovering from cancer, as extra care is needed to avoid certain techniques or products which may interfere with recovery.

Currently available in 10 Nuffield Health Beauty Suites across the country, Relax & Restore treatments can be booked online in advance. As they are suitable for anyone, sons and daughters can enjoy a spa day or treatment alongside their Mums.

McCarthy and Stone recently did a survey to find out the most common advice from mothers in the UK. 

According to their findings, Yorkshire kids are the grumpiest in the UK, London mums have the most concern over healthy eating and, North East mums might be the reason why the North is such a friendly region.

The toughest crowd in comedy?

Josie Long and The Scummy Mummies headline the comedy club where babies can come too!

Screaming With Laughter returns to Underbelly Festival Southbank for two epic shows where the comedy is strictly for grown-ups, but babies can come along for a load of lunchtime laughs. No need for a babysitter, just bring ‘em along and guffaw away – baby and all. Perfect for anyone and their under ones. On Saturday 20 April, it’s Josie Long and resident MC Hatty Ashdown hosts this antidote to baby rhyme-time clubs. While on Saturday 13 July, it’s the podcast pioneers The Scummy Mummies and Darren Walsh.

There’s lots of room in the Spiegel Tent to get up and have a wander, pop out changing mats and any other inexplicably giant space-invading paraphernalia. Not forgetting baby changing facilities, a play area and most importantly a judgement-free atmosphere. Screaming With Laughter welcomes mums, dads, friends, aunts, grans and other rellies – make sure you bring your baby-shaped golden ticket (don’t worry, babies go free – octuplet mums for the win!). Just relax and join in the Southbank festival atmosphere and have a right old giggle with us.

Here’s what our comedians have to say about Screaming With Laughter and the whole babylicious shebang:

“Performing for a room full of tired, distracted, sometimes zombied out parents can be a challenge as a comic… but then I’m one of them so it’s more like group therapy with wine! So excited to be back at the Underbelly’s gorgeous Spiegel Tent playing to a huge audience with twice the amount of babies to scream, but three times as much laughter from very grateful slightly boozed up new parents! Did I mention there was wine?”

Hatty Ashdown

“The Scummy Mummies are thrilled to be performing at Screaming With Laughter and to be at the Underbelly Fest for the second year running. We love performing at these shows. As mums we know these events are lifelines for parents with little ones. God knows, we all need a laugh after looking a baby and being covered in vomited and mashed banana and getting no more than three hours of sleep on most days! Can’t wait to see you all at the Underbelly – we will bring the catsuits, you can bring the laughs!”

Helen Thorn, The Scummy Mummies

“This having a baby lark isn’t for the faint hearted – I’m really looking forward to playing to a room full of sleep deprived parents who will understand me.”

4 in 5 mums expect to be disappointed on Mother’s Day – and miss being able to use the loo in peace

8 in 10 mums expect to be disappointed by Mother’s Day gifts
40% of mums don’t always have time to wash themselves
1 in 4 mums say they don’t have time to read a book, have a cup of tea or use the loo without being disturbed
Most mums stressed out by getting kids to leave the house

A new study of 2,000 UK mothers for Buyagift.co.uk reveals that 80% of mothers expect to be disappointed by the gifts they’ll receive on Sunday (Mother’s Day).

Most mums in the poll believe that their children or spouse won’t end up getting them the gift they want due to confusion around product names or mum’s availability. The most desired gift is a spa treatment, with 3 in 4 mums agreeing that they’d love one for Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day treat? They just want to use the loo in peace: The poll also found that mothers are rushed off their feet with 77% saying that they miss having time for themselves. 40% of mums in the poll admit that they most miss having time to wash themselves every day. 50% missed sleeping in while 1 in 4 mums also said that they don’t have time to enjoy a cup of tea before it gets cold or to use the toilet without being disturbed.

Kids stress mums out the most: Rather than relationship or financial worries, the vast majority of mums cited their kids as a source of stress. 50% said that their most common trigger of stress is getting the kids to leave the house. Another 40% of UK mums said that getting the kids to go to bed was the largest stress moment of their day. The kid’s behaviour during supermarket shopping, long car journeys and potty training also stressed out one third of mums.

Mums becoming dangerously sleep deprived: The stress from these daily frustrations could be driving sleepless nights for mums, as nearly 2 in 3 mums claimed that they get at least one hour less than the recommended 7 hours sleep on an average night. 1 in 10 mums get less than 3 hours sleep on an average night, making them dangerously sleep deprived.

Alison Vickery, Marketing Director of Buyagift comments: “From getting the kids to leave the house to potty training, modern stresses of motherhood often mean that mums aren’t getting the sleep and relaxation they deserve. With so much on their plate, 1 in 4 mums don’t find the time to do the simple things that we all take for granted – from reading a book or having a cup of tea to being able to use the loo without being disturbed! Despite this 80% of mums don’t expect to get the gift they’re looking for this Mother’s Day.”

Championing me-time this Mother’s Day, Buyagift conducted a stress experiment on UK mums with help of Dr Daniel Plews (Physiologist to Olympic athletes), to rank the scientifically most relaxing Mother’s Day treats.

The experiment on UK mummy bloggers studied their stress levels – or Heart Rate Variability (HRV) – at the most stressful moments of their day and during a plethora of beauty treatments to reveal the treatments that reduce stress the most.

Buyagift then compared the different readings to determine the most-improved stress rates and unveil which spa treatments truly reduce stress levels the most. A simple neck and shoulder massage beat more complex treatments, such as Swedish full body massage, hot stone massage and Indian head massage. Surprisingly a wash, cut and blow dry came in second – beating eight other treatments.

The top 10 most relaxing treatments according to science:

Neck and shoulder massage
Wash, cut and blow dry
Deep tissue massage
Steam and sauna
Swedish full body massage
Pedicure
Facial
Hot stone massage
Indian head massage
Manicure

6.8 MILLION MUMS TO HAVE A LONG-DISTANCE MOTHER’S DAY

6.8 million mums with grown-up kids may be spending Mother’s Day without their son or daughter this year
More than 1 in 10 live more than 100 miles away from their mum
Long-distance named as a top reason for not seeing mum on Mother’s Day

LONG-DISTANCE motherhood is making it difficult for Brits to see their mums this Mother’s Day, as more than 1 in 10 people now live 100 miles or more away from their mum, according to new data.

A survey of 1,000 UK adults carried out by One4all, the Post Office gift card, has found that once we reach adulthood, only 53% of us see our mum every year on Mother’s Day – meaning a shocking 6.8 million mums may be spending Mother’s Day alone this year.

According to the data, 11% live more than 100 miles away from their mum, which can make paying her a visit on Mother’s Day difficult.

Shockingly, more than 1 in 4 (28%) adults say they would not travel further than 10 miles to see their mum on Mother’s Day.

The top reasons respondents gave for not seeing their mum on Mother’s Day this year include ‘it’s too far to travel’ and ‘it’s too expensive to travel.’

However, distance is not the only factor keeping mums and their children apart this year as some admit ‘I have other plans’ whilst others say they can’t see their mum on Mother’s Day because ‘she has other plans’.

Almost 1 in 10 (9%) admit to only seeing their mum once a year or less and therefore many will resort to sending a token of appreciation in the post for Mother’s Day this year.

More than 1 in 4 (26%) are planning to send a card this year whilst 28% will send a gift to mark the occasion.

Leanne Halpin, Group Consumer Communications Manager at One4all Gift Cards, says: “With up to 10 million mums potentially spending Mother’s Day without seeing their grown-up son or daughter, it makes it even more important to pick up the phone, send a thoughtful gift or use technology to have a face-to-face chat.

“Naturally some children will fly the nest and settle further afield, be it for higher education, a new job or to start a family of their own. It’s natural then that some people aren’t able to celebrate these family occasions due to the expense or distance. It only makes it all the more important to keep in touch and make sure even ‘long-distance mums’ are made to feel that they are loved and being thought about.”

According to the survey Londoners were found to be residing further away from mum than any other region, with 15% living more than 100 miles away.

The study also revealed that women are much better at regularly seeing their mothers, as the data revealed that almost twice as many women (20%) see their mum every day, compared to just 11% of men.

The One4all Gift Card is the UK’s leading multi-store gift card and can be loaded with anything from £10 – £400.

The One4all Gift Card can be spent in more than 55,000 stores and websites across the UK and is available to buy from Post Offices nationwide and online at www.one4all.com.

Glendalough Rose Gin

Released at the beginning of 2019, the Glendalough Rose Gin is much more than “just another pink gin”. It’s a small-batch product, made when the distillers took their Wild Gin recipe and redistilled it with extra fruit, flowers, spices and fresh wild rose petals from three varieties – the rare and elusive Wild Rose found in the Wicklow mountains, the ancient prized Damask Rose and the large fragrant Heritage Rose.

Because of the delicate ingredients used to make the Rose Gin, a slow distillation process is used with the vapour distillation playing a large role in extracting the essential oils and flavours. After distilling it is infused with more roses to deepen the flavour. All this gives it an aromatic nose, a gentle sweet spice, reminiscent of Turkish delight, as well as a lovely pink hue.

At the Glendalough distillery, the focus is on making innovative spirits whilst staying true to the tradition and heritage of their ancestors. They work with expert forager Geraldine Kavanagh who forages in the local mountains around the distillery to make every gin produced unique and full of the flavours of Glendalough.

Available: Amazon and Master of Malt

SINGLE MUMS SPEND £50 ON THEMSELVES FOR MOTHER’S DAY

– 57% of single mums admit to buying themselves a gift

– The average Brit intends to spend £17 on Mother’s Day gifts this year

– 1 in 3 Brits aren’t planning to gift at all

SINGLE mums are taking matters into their own hands to arrange Mother’s Day gifts for themselves, according to new research.

A survey of 1,000 British adults carried out by SerenataFlowers.com, the UK’s leading online florist, has revealed that 57% of single mums admit to buying themselves gifts “from the kids” on Mother’s Day.

On average, single mums were found to spend £50 on themselves in total. Almost 1 in 4 (24%) even said they would purchase a card themselves for their children to sign and give back to them.

But it’s not all bad, British adults are still breaking their piggy banks to treat mums with the average Brit intending to spend £17 on Mother’s Day gifts this year.

The gifts mums are most likely to receive include confectionary (65%), flowers (42%) and candles (29%). These were closely followed by jewellery (25%) and alcohol (21%) which came in fourth and fifth place respectively.

Lucia Polla, marketing manager at SerenataFlowers.com, comments: “It’s amazing to see so many single mums making the decision to treat themselves to a Mother’s Day gift, and rightly so. Single mums deserve to feel appreciated and Mother’s Day is the perfect time for everything they do for their kids to be recognised with something special, no matter what the cost. Wouldn’t it be nice even for single mums to be treated by a close friend or family member so they don’t have to treat themselves to a gift.

“For children wanting to invest in a gift, treating mum doesn’t need to break the bank, especially when there are so many great value products out there to choose from. It’s the thought that counts, which as cliché as it is to say – is the truth. Try to budget the month ahead so you can keep a little money aside for a small but thoughtful gift which mum will truly appreciate.”

Surprisingly, 1 in 3 (33%) Brits aren’t planning to get their mums anything at all for Mother’s Day this year. 45% admit they will just send a card.

Of those respondents not planning to buy a gift this year, 34% claimed this was because they don’t celebrate Mother’s Day whilst 28% said they won’t be seeing their mum on the day. 15% said they would not be purchasing a gift because they couldn’t afford to and 12% said their mum had asked them not to get her a gift this year.

Top 10 Mother’s Day Gifts

Confectionary – 65%
Flowers – 42%
Candles – 29%
Jewellery – 25%
Alcohol – 21%

TESCO SET TO PROVIDE MOTHER’S DAY BOUQUETS FOR ONE IN THREE BRITISH MUMS

Netherlands-based Tesco flower suppliers, Villa Gerbera, prepare to send their flowers for Mother’s Day bouquets. Tesco suppliers will harvest and hand-tie five million bouquets for Mother’s Day this year, providing a bunch of flowers for almost one in three (28 percent) mums in the UK.i

Amongst European Tesco suppliers preparing for harvest is Villa Gerbera, based in Rotterdam. They will be picking almost nine acres of gerberas in time for Mother’s Day, approximately 10 million individual stems. These gerberas will feature in the Tesco Tequila Sunrise bouquet – a bright collection featuring roses, gerberas and lilies and predicted to sell over 40,000 bouquets to gift givers in the week leading up to Mother’s Day.ii

Michelle Buck, Head Florist at Tesco, commented on Mother’s Day horticulture trends: “In recent years we have seen a shift away from country-style dainty bouquets to a trend of Renaissance-style bunches containing statement blooms like the large gerberas picked in the Netherlands, which we are using mixed with classic roses and foliage in our zingy Tequila Sunrise Bouquet.”

Mike Zuidgeest, Director at Villa Gerbera, commented on the harvest: “For us, growing gerberas is a passion. The gerbera means ‘happiness’ so we hope they will bring a smile to mums faces this Mother’s Day.”
