First of all, if you haven’t heard of Lily King then let me introduce you. Lily King is an online lifestyle store offering the most beautiful selection of gifts, homeware and fashion accessories. The collection is curated by Lily herself who has a keen eye for individual pieces that are both stylish and contemporary.
I was keen to collaborate with Lily King because I enjoy sharing new finds with you and championing independent brands. Also as the owner of a lifestyle store myself I am inspired by the business she has been able to create.

Browsing the online store is a pleasurable experience, there is a good selection of products available yet the choice isn’t overwhelming. You really get the sense that the products are carefully chosen. So if you are looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, look no further.
Turning to an independent store for gifts never fails to impress. It will take the same amount of clicks as shopping from your usual site and it won’t cost you any more – but it will make you look thoughtful and cool because you’ll stumble upon fabulous but lesser known brands such as Becksonderdaard.
Now for the edit – want to know what was on my shopping list from Lily King? Definitely not a macaroni necklace made by a child! Don’t get me wrong, they are very charming but mums do a lot throughout the year and we definitely deserve a bit of indulgence.
First up is a decadent bath oil from Ortigia a Sicilian brand that screams opulence and this elegant Ume ceramic dish and incense sticks to go with it. Far from being unimaginative, my personal opinion is that gifting luxurious bath and body products is like saying ‘take time off and relax, you deserve it’. – Glorious packaging, heavenly scents and quality ingredients are such a thrill.
Find the perfect gift for everyone
Believe it or not I was thinking beyond my own wish list whilst I was working on my edit from Lily King – yes, really – I came to the conclusion that this gold initial necklace and this brightly coloured throw would make excellent gifts for my mum and my mother-in-law. The quality and design of both is excellent and they will be impressed that they didn’t receive a bunch of flowers and a box of chocolates.
Have you shopped from Lily King before? Anything special on your Mother’s Day wish list? Drop me a line, I’d love to know!
