Where we live in Bucks we are lucky enough to be within walking distance of a gorgeous village, Chalfont St Peter has some really unique shops and places to eat. This Mother's Day why not consider supporting your local businesses and shop locally?
Just on my high street we have an array of fantastic unique gift shops as well as other local business who provide photography services, beauty treatments and much more.
I've managed to get some really lovely gifts in the past most recently a framed print of our beautiful village taken by a local photographer Paul Upward and framed by Cath at Emerald Framing in the village. I've also had some wonderful treatments at my local beauty salon Calme - facials are to die for - plus bought a really unique gift from Marie at Fired Works for a wedding anniversary gift a photo on glass it's stunning. If you head into see Adele at Adele Kelly boutique she will always help you pick out something to put you ahead of the fashion pack, as well as stocking some amazing gifts.
One of my new favourite places to eat is the Jolly Farmer with a Sunday roast that melts in your mouth and the most amazing gin and cocktail menu it really is a treat all round. For a coffee and a sweet treat try the Breadhouse - with a children's play area and board games you can spend a cosy couple of hours there.
There's something really comforting about seeing familiar faces as you wonder down your local high street, that sense of home you just don't get elsewhere. We've lived here for four years and I can honestly say I've never felt at home as I do here in this village. Take a wonder down your local high street, you never know what you may discover.
