When figs meet tea

I really like Mini Moderns, their design work is stunning and I really like their colour choices. I really love the Whitby design, I’m very tempted by the coffee pot.

Mini Moderns Whitby Enamelware Coffee Pot

 

But I also love the home fragrance collection they’ve put together and I particularly like the Darjeeling diffuser.

 

Mini Moderns Darjeeling Fragrance Diffuser

 

It’s partly to do with the colours, but mainly to do with the fragrance notes, which are tea, fresh green fig and spicy white pepper. Sounds perfect for a food lover, and works as well in the lounge as in the kitchen.

Of course those who read my blog regularly might have expected me to pick another of their fragrances. Yes, they have a Gin Fizz version too, which I could also be very tempted by.

Definitely a brand worth keeping an eye on if modern, clean line design is your thing.

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and breakfast in bed is a tradition in many homes. Well, breakfast in bed is bound to need tea in my book, so here are ten great mugs for delivering that first brew of the day in.

Mum is my hero mug from Emma Bridgewater

Simple styling, lovely sentiment from Emma Bridgewater, sure to bring a smile to any mum’s face.

 

Mama Bear Mug from Plewsey

 

Show her she’s the mama bear in your tribe with this lovely mug from Plewsy.

 

Spotty China Letter Mug

 

 

No one else can claim this lovely spotty mug with her initial on it.

Chalkhill Blue Enamel Ware Mug from Mini Moderns

Go a little different, with this Chalkhill Blue enamelware mug from Mini Moderns. Definitely going to keep the tea warm.

 

Catch of the Day Mug from Port & Lemon

 

I like this Catch of the Day mug from Port & Lemon, the design is really appealing but unfussy.

 

 

Olive Berries Small Mug from Repeat Repeat

 

Not every mug has to be an enormous bucket of tea. For something elegant, then try the Olive Berries Small Mug from Repeat Repeat.

The Boss. Because she is.

The Boss from Ban.do. Because she is. Simple as that.

 

Greasy spoon mug from Gillian Kyle

Peggy the Chicken Mug from Joules - perfect gift for a country loving, tea loving mum

 

If she is a country mum, or just fancies the country life, then about Peggy the chicken from Joules?

 

 

Home is where my mum is mug

 

 

Home is where my mum is. For some it always be the truth, so let her know it. To be fair, if you’ve never moved out then she might be very well aware of it!

Of course you could gift wrap the mug, but would be so much nicer to deliver it to bed, full of tea!
