Poppies Hamilton is definitely my kind of bookshop. They have some great books you won't find in mainstream bookshops like Whitcoulls. And they also have a great kids selection - which has become particularly handy given so many friends of mine have young kids who are just getting into their storytelling years.
There’s nothing like a good book. Surprise your Mum with a tasty cook book like ‘My Darling Lemon Thyme’ by Emma Galloway - only just released last month, this is sure to get her excited with new recipes to try out in the kitchen. Or if Mum’s not into cooking, find a good novel or autobiography from Poppies’ fascinating shelves!
