Not another Bunch of Flowers

Not another Bunch of Flowers is an online shop set up by Anikka Burton. She was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago (she's now in the clear). She's one amazing lady who has been through so much.  You can read her story here.

She was sent lots and lots of bunches of flowers by friend and colleagues. A huge lover of flowers but there is only so many a girl needs!

Anikka has hand picked "favourite pretty pampering and practical gifts to brighten any loved one's day".  Everything is so special and perfect for gifting and will most definitely make someone's day if not their week! 

There is a need to be careful with pampering and edible gifts as many contain ingredients best avoided like SLS, parabens and dairy produce during chemo treatment.

A proportion of profits will be donated to select charities which I think is a really kind and thoughtful touch.

The shop has a beautiful selection of products designed to lift the spirits and make someone smile.

I picked up a beautiful mug with a heartfelt message - Always Remember how Much you are Loved by Juicy Lucy - this costs £7.99 and comes with a matching gift bag.  P&P is £3.95.

I just know the recipient of this will be touched and feel loved every time she has a hot drink.  It is just perfect for anyone needing "love and sparkle in their lives".

Anikka has thought of everything! There are hampers, general gifts, jewellery, pampering, chemo, surgery, mobility, little gifts, cards and gift vouchers available to buy.  See the full range here.  There are some gorgeous little gifts under the £10 mark - see these here

Here are a few which caught my eye - 

An adorable rose scented candle in a porcelain pot with a label bearing the words "Look towards the sun and the shadows will fall behind you".

Which contains Liberty Print Daydream Eye Mask and Earplugs, Green & Spring Relaxing Bath and Shower Foam 300ml, Green & Spring Relaxing Body Lotion 300ml, Green & Spring Relaxing Candle Set 3 x 37g and a box of Pukka Night Time Tea.

Perfect for wearing alone or under a woolly hat. Especially picked for chemotherapy patients or alopecia sufferers.
