‘She was muddled and mischievous as a chimney-jackdaw, she made her nest of rags and jewels, was happy in the sunlight, squawked loudly at danger, pried and was insatiably curious, forgot when to eat or ate all day, and sang when sunsets were red . . . She was an artist, a light-giver and an original, and she never for a moment knew it.’
Chapter 7: ‘Mother’
Laurie Lee, Slightly Foxed Edition No. 53: Cider with Rosie
With Mothering Sunday approaching we thought some of you may appreciate a few bookish gift ideas for the mother figures in your lives – or for any fellow booklover or, indeed, yourself!
All items can be wrapped in handsome brown paper, tied up with our cream ribbon and sent directly to recipient, or to you to hand over in person. If you’re worried about delivery times, or if you’re cutting it a little fine when placing your order, you can also choose to have an instant gift card sent to you to print out at home or sent straight to the recipient by email.
Please do read on for a selection of present suggestions for Mothering Sunday and other occasions.
With best wishes, as ever, from the SF office staff
