Cuisineart Bean to Cup Coffee Machine in box

£198.95 at Harts of Stur


If your Mum loves coffee then why not gift them professionally made coffee in the comfort of her own home, with this professional bean to cup coffee machine from Cuisinart. It produces the ultimate filter coffee by freshly grinding your beans, with its built-in burr grinder, before brewing.

Cuisineart Bean to Cup Coffee Machine

Grinding your coffee beans immediately before brewing helps keep the delicate oils and aromas inside them giving you a more enjoyable cup of coffee. We love how once you add your choice of fresh beans, you can select the strength of your coffee from the mild, medium or strong settings. Plus, how you can also brew your coffee from your favourite pre-ground beans.

Coffee Bean Storage Cuisineart Coffee Machine

Best of all the machine is fully automatic, it grinds just the right amount of beans, to just the right consistency, before brewing up to 12 cups of coffee, which can be kept fresh and warm for a few hours in the double walled thermal carafe. It can also be programmed to make your coffee ready for when you wake in the morning, which is our most fav setting.

This wonderful find, You’ll Never Walk Alone, is the fifth book from Rachel Kelly, the Sunday Times bestselling author. Rachel is the author of four previous books which cover her experience of depression, anxiety, and recovery steps to wellbeing.

It’s a collection of various poems some upbeat, some a bit dark, but all a reflection of true life’s ups and downs. We love how they have been curated into seasons of the year, as we get that winter tend to be dark and summer more joyful and this connection is how our moods too have seasons.

The Binding Room Nadine Matheson Book

The binding room book cover

£4.50 at Amazon


If your Mum loves reading, especially crime thrillers then one we must mention as a fab gifting option – The Binding Room by Nadine Matheson, as we love how well written it is, how the story moves at a good pace and how it has some wicked twists to it.

Nadine specialises in Criminal law and has represented all types of people over the last 20-years as a solicitor. Having always worked in criminal defence she has represented her client at all stages of their case, from the police station through to the court of appeal and has worked on the most serious of cases including murders, sexual offences and large fraud cases that have made it into the news.

Nadine Matheson’s D.I. Henley novels show the realities of a criminal investigation but also the impact that intensive investigation has on the victims, their family, and friends as well as detectives working the case.

The Jigsaw Man was the first in the D.I. Henley series and was named ‘Book of 2021’ by the Evening Standard and was shortlisted for numerous awards. The Binding Room is the second of Nadine Matheson’s D.I. Henley novels and tells the story of how following a fatal stabbing of a local pastor, the serial crimes unit are called to investigate, where D.I. Henley discovers a hidden door that hides a torture room. Inside they find the body of a man strapped to the bed in the middle of the room, but the penny soon drops there’s someone torturing people and leaving them to dead, when another body is found. With nothing connecting the victims, it’s up to Detective Henley to stop them before another binding room is found.
