The Perfect Mothers Day Gift: Fine Bone China

Are you racking your brains to think of an easy, affordable, but thoughtful Mothers Day gift that will arrive in time for this weekend? We have the perfect answer!
Hudson and Middleton mugs are a fantastic gift for someone you love, and they are easily affordable but top quality fine bone china. Starting at £9.95 plus P+P, we have a great range of different designs to suit all different personalities.
The Anna Danielle range…..

The Anna Danielle collection is a fantastic collection for people who love their pets. This range of cats, dogs and horse illustrations is heartfelt and humourous, and for anyone who has a pet, they will know the characters they portray are completely accurate. From cats rolling in clean bed sheets, to dogs waiting eagerly for an owner’s return, to a horse totally unwilling to go into a horse box, this is a fabulous range for animal lovers and because they’ve worked with Hudson and Middleton to produce these mugs, they are of the highest quality fine china.

The Trumpers World range…..
hm-trumpers-world-breakfastThe Trumpers World range features some great light hearted farmyard scenes, which are just perfect for a country lover. These china mugs come in a slightly shorter but wider shape known as the York mug shape. Many of the designs feature chickens and pigs and have funny slogans such as “Ladies Who Lunch”, “Gordon’s in the Brown Stuff Again” (featuring a particularly muddy looking pig “Gordon”) and the oh so cute “The Breakfast Meeting” (shows a hen standing above a row of piglets eagerly listening to her orders). This range has sadly been discontinued so although we have quite a few pieces left in stock, when they go we will not be able to replace them.
Hic Haec Hoc…..
hudson-middletonHic Haec Hoc is a fairly new range of lovely china mugs with funny messages and pretty designs. The four we offer at the moment are centred around gardening, which is apt timing for the onset of Spring. The messages are just ever so slightly suggestive in parts, e.g. “Garden Lovers Enjoy Dirty Weekends” and enjoy a spot of light humour. These mugs would make a perfect present for any keen gardener, and if you were looking for one for Mothers Day, how about “Garden Goddesses Have Got It Growing On?”
On The Farm…..
On-the-farmThis is a range of quite substantial sized china mugs with beautifully simple designs around the outside. Still made from fine bone china, they feature typical farm animals and objects. The three designs we stock at the moment are “Cows”, “Pigs” and “Sheep” and each animal is teamed with a stereotypical farmyard object such as wheelbarrow, wellies and tractor. The simple design with vibrant colours is subtle yet lovely at the same time, and the shape and size are great for a larger brew. The china is slightly ribbed around the outside making them very tactile as well as aesthetically appealing.
We do stock a few other ranges but these are our favourites at the moment. We plan to expand this range in the near future as well, to include some of Hudson and Middleton’s more recent collections, as they continuously work with new artists to create more and more lovely collections. All their products are manufactured here in the UK, in Stoke on Trent, which is very important to us as we like to support British Industry wherever we can.
Each mug comes gift boxed and will be sent by Royal Mail 1st Class post. For this week running up to Mothers Day, we will send them all 1st Class Recorded Delivery to make sure they arrive in time for the weekend. If you order before noon on Friday 28 March, we will have your item dispatched to you to arrive before Mothers Day.

Have a browse of our Hudson and Middleton collection and see what you think. We hope you love it as much as we do!
