Teachers spend their working days looking after our children. Come the end of term, how about a gift that is all about looking after them?
Don’t Buy Her Flowers is a thoughtful gift company, with gift packages for women that encourage the recipient to sit down and take a bit of time for herself.
The Some Like It Hot package contains delicious shortbread, tea and a Thermos mug (also perfect for taking to work when they’re back in September), or help them unwind with the Recovery Package, containing five luxury British products to scrub and soothe from head to toe. If you know they’re a gin-lover, the Any Occasion Package covers that.
Founder Steph Douglas said:
‘As parents we want to show how grateful we are for another year of care and education, so it makes sense to give a gift that is all about looking after them.
‘There’s a growing trend for parents to club together to buy something a bit more thoughtful - most of us have parent group emails set up anyway so it’s easy to organise. We have add ons and options in all of our packages, so they can be tailored to make them perfect for the recipient and suit the budget’.
Prices start from £17.50. Add ons include COOK food vouchers and MILK Beauty vouchers*.

Don't Buy Her Flowers sells thoughtful gifts for new mums and anyone that deserves some TLC. Our packages are all about encouraging the recipient to take a bit of time to herself or with her partner, because she deserves it.

Each package has been carefully put together using primarily British products and arrives beautifully gift-wrapped. Many customers report recipients cried when they opened their package, overwhelmed that someone is thinking about what they actually need. Best seller The Care Package contains a magazine, tea, flapjack, handmade truffles and a scarf. The Recovery Package is all about taking time out with five products to sooth and polish from top to toe. Other packages include Gin & Tonic (very popular for Mother's Day 2015), dry shampoo, and a Thermos mug to finally combat the issue of parents never getting a hot cuppa. COOK food vouchers can be added to any package, giving new parents or anyone feeling below par great food delivered to their door.

Set up in 2014, the idea for Don't Buy Her Flowers came after founder Steph Douglas had her first baby and received more flowers than she had vases for. Research found that 96% of new mums receive flowers, and Steph saw that a go-to gift that requires looking after at a time when someone is doing more caring than they've ever done in their life makes no sense. Initially with a focus on new mums, customers quickly started also buying packages for birthdays, get well and any occasion where they wanted to let someone know they're being thought of. Steph also writes the Sisterhood (and all that) blog, an honest account of motherhood and relationships.
