Mother's Day Gifts from Gone Crabbing

I came across Gone Crabbing recently when my friend Eileen at ET Speaks From Home reviewed their fab kids' hoodies and Wild Lettuce soap. When they got in touch to tell me about their Mother's Day gifts recently I knew I had to tell you about them.

Gone Crabbing Logo

The Norfolk company sells a really broad range of products, from clothing for children and adults, through homewares, to small pocket money items like keyrings and erasers. The company was started at a kitchen table five years ago by a Norfolk mumpreneur who spotted a gap in the market for high end souvenirs. Colin the Crab was born and is the symbol of the brand and now Gone Crabbing has a wide range of products, two shops- in Burnham Deepdale, Norfolk and Southwold, Suffolk - and a thriving website.

As mentioned the Gone Crabbing range is extensive. With everything from beach towels to baby clothes, pencils to placemats, there is something for every budget. We were sent a mug and a bar of soap as an example of their Mother's Day gifts.

Gone Crabbing Mug and Soap Mother's Day Gift

I love a bone china mug. Given the choice it's all I will use to drink tea from. Tea always tastes better in bone china. I received the Petal mug which retails at £8:50. This is a white mug with a distinctive petal design all over it. While it doesn't feature Colin the Crab or any of his friends the style of the flower design is distinctively 'Gone Crabbing' so it fits into the range well, with a girly touch. The mug is a decent size, a little chunkier than the usual bone china mugs and is really nice to hold. It's a lovely mug and I'm sure most of the mums I know would be delighted to receive it as a gift for Mother's Day, perhaps with a chocolate treat, or a few of their favourite tea bags inside?

Gone Crabbing Petals Bone China Mug

Another gift which would be lovely to pop inside the mug before giving it as a gift, is the 'Really Lovely Smelly Soap' which matches - featuring the Petals design on the wrapper. Now, I'm fussy with soap. I like it to be good at lathering, smell wonderful and be creamy too. Gone Crabbing soap ticks all of those boxes. As soon as I opened my parcel I could smell the strong Jasmine scent. I love the fragrance of Jasmine, it's one of my relaxing, centring aromas, and this version is beautiful. There are seven soaps in the range, each fragranced, and wittily named, differently. They are triple milled, and manufactured in a small English soapery, and aren't tested on animals. A complete win win and, at £4:99 for a 200g bar, I think they are great value for money too. So many soaps are great in the packet and rubbish when used to wash with, this one passed that test too, producing a rich, creamy lather with a gorgeous scent, which makes using it a pleasure. I'd be utterly delighted with this as a gift and, if Jasmine isn't a favourite of yours there are six other scents to investigate too.

Gone Crabbing Very Lovely Smelly Soap

I've been really impressed with the Gone Crabbing products I have tried. I think they represent excellent quality and good value for money, with some lovely gifts available. It's always great to support small British companies who offer something a little quirky and they definitely fit the bill. I think I'll certainly back to buy from the website in the future.
