The blurb says “These lightweight waterproof multi-sport trainers for women are ideal for a range of outdoor activities including walking, leisurely bike rides, climbing and tree-top rope fun.” I like the sound of treetop fun, but am a bit more of a scaredy cat than that!
Cranes Cranberry Gin
Ooh, I think most mothers would be very pleased to get this on Mother’s Day! Cranes say, “We handcraft our smooth and fruity, yet delightfully sharp gin using high quality premium cranberries. Only natural ingredients are used throughout creation, meaning our gin is vegan and gluten-free. A bottle of Cranes Gin is the perfect gift for your Mum this Mother’s Day!”

I love these, and am constantly being asked for a charger, so this would make a perfect present to make my life easier! The Super Juice Super-Fast Wall Charger (with rubber grip for ease of pulling out of the socket!). Instead of waiting 2 hours to charge a mobile to 75% with a standard charger, the Super Juice charger will do it in 45 minutes. And also the 12345 Power bank range – each one is numbered and the number on the power bank indicates how many charges you get from the power bank. Ideal for festivals and travel!
