Another holiday another gift guide! This ones to celebrate all the Modified Mommas out there.

So if your mums not like all the others or you want to thank your Mrs for being the best mum in the world to your bundle of joy but fancy something a little bit different and alternative here’s the guide for you.


We’ve trawled the internet for you and hand picked our favourite finds that the mother in your life is going to love. As an indie brand we’re big supporters of other indie businesses so you’re sure to find something completely unique that will knock her socks off (or on we have come cute socks in here)

Pirates, Parrots and Caffeine

Travel Mug, £15, Menagerie of Mayhem

Arrrrr, what more could a wench want? Hand drawn by Fiona Fletcher of Menagerie of Mayhem the pirate skull and parrot design wraps all the way around the travel mug. It is made from stainless Steel and is completely dishwasher safe, which she will love by the way. Partner with some rum for a proper pirate coffee…

EDIT since we first wrote this page Menagerie of Mayhem seriously upped their game and have so many awesome new products.

Ruby the Punk Unicorn

Plush, £22.27, Corimori

Not so much an indie brand but this plush was so badass we couldn’t resist!

If you’re looking for a normal white unicorn with the typical rainbow hair, you won’t find it in Ruby, for she has something much better – a unique personality! Ruby is the world’s best rock-unicorn because, instead of the usual unicorns, our Ruby has a skull Tattoo, three earrings and a piercing. And yet, she is very sweet and you’re simply going to love her! A typical example for a hard shell and a soft core, because Ruby likes to rock as much as she likes to cuddle and will go through thick and thin with you. The Corimori plush characters were all designed in Germany and during the manufacturing of the stuffed animals, special attention was paid to amazing details, excellent workmanship and a super soft filling.
