Mother’s Day Gift Guide!
Hello friends! It’s that time of the year again… Mother’s Day! As a child we never celebrated the -let’s be honest here- made up holiday, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to realise it might be made up and possibly designed to sell cards. But it also brings joy and an excuse to meet up with our mums and say ‘thank you’ for everything they do, and have done, for us.
I don’t care what anyone says, beauty supplements make a fantastic gift! After all, it’s not unusual to give face creams and cleansers as a gift which are designed to make your skin look better, so why not give supplements to make your skin look better – from the inside?! Personally I’m all about Rejuvenated beauty supplements. They are the creme de la creme of the market and they have the best ingredients and, I think, the best results!
Sun Day ‘Botanical Sleepy Mist’
If your mum struggles with sleep, then I can’t recommend a pillow spray enough! I swear by them when I’m having trouble sleeping and if you travel long haul they are a game changer for getting on local time. But here’s the thing people don’t say enough… not all pillow sprays are made equal! I have tried a lot and honestly, some of them do not work and some of them work like a dream! What’s the difference between a good and bad pillow spray?! The ingredients! Personally, I find the This Works, Aromatherapy Associates and Sun Day ones the best for their effective blends and high quality essential oils. However, if you are giving a gift, then I would say go with Sun Day because the packaging is *chefs kiss* and they use a magnificent blend of 12 essential oils which truly work! LOVE!
Liz Earle Treats
When it comes to skincare, I’m fully obsessed with Liz Earle! I love their classic Cleanse & Polish cleanser, as well as their new Cleanse & Glow, the CICA paste face mask and of course, the toner! But damn! It’s all good!!!! Go for a gift set, or do a pick and mix selection tailored to her skin! Whatever you fancy! I truly can’t say enough good things about Liz Earle products!
A New Mug
A beautiful mug makes a great and affordable gift. Personally, I LOVE a Le Creuset and I like buying them in lots of lovely colours. Plus they are lovely to drink out of! Always a winner!
Fortnum & Mason Tea (or hamper!)
This could either be an add on to a new mug, or served (pun intended) alone, but I can’t recommend a little Fortnum & Mason Tea enough! It makes a beautiful little treat gift and the tins can be kept forever!! Or, if you have a little more budget, there is no greater gift than a F&M hamper!!
A Beautiful Book
My mum loves beautiful books as much as I do and one of my favourite coffee table books recently has to be the Pearl Lowe ‘Faded Glamour’ book. If your mum loves interiors, I highly recommend it, otherwise how about a beautiful cook book instead?
L’occitane Bath & Body Treats
My mum LOVES L’occitane Bath & Body Treats and it’s always her go-to brand when she’s buying gifts for others. Which is why I know she loves a little L’occitane gift set for herself! Personally, I would recommend anything from the Almond, Shea Butter or Lavender range, but it’s honestly all beautiful! My personal favourite product from the brand is the Almond shower oil which is why I thought this set with the jumbo sized shower oil was a winner!
I LOVE Monica Vinader jewellery and I have to say, it makes a GREAT gift for literally everyone! I think because it’s so simple, beautiful and timeless, it’s perfect for everyone!! Click to this post to read my review AND get a 20% discount code!
Aromatherapy Associates Bath Oils
It’s no secret I adore Aromatherapy Associates Bath Oils and whilst I normally buy myself a big ol’ bottle (usually either Rose, Deep Relax, Revive or Forest Therapy). However, when it comes to gifts, I LOVE a selection box so the receiver can have fun finding their own favourite fragrance! This set is absolutely stunning and contains all my faves and more! Stunning gift for every bath lover! You truly don’t get better than Aromatherapy Associates!
A Lovely Candle
Like every woman out there, I LOVE a good candle! There’s so many great ones to choose from, I love Diptyque, Jo Malone, Fornasetti and right now, I’m loving this one by Nest, which you can find at Cult Beauty. It really fills the space and is super pretty and clean smelling for spring time. The Rose & Oud sounds stunning as well!
Mavala Nail Polish Set
Fun fact!! Everyone feels better when they have painted nails!! It’s just an instant mood lifter, like a good red lipstick! I LOVE the Mavala nail polishes, they are dreamy colours and stunning quality! This new Prismatic collection is a dream come true… in fact, I might have to buy two, one for me, one for mum!
Fancy AF Sunglasses
My mum LOVES a good pair of sunglasses and one year I gave her a pair of Prada sunglasses and she was PUMPED! It was kinda extravagant, but she was super shocked and she still loves them and wears them years later!! Personally, I would recommend either Ray-ban, Prada or Gucci! WBU?
Jean Paul Gaultier ‘La Belle Fleur Terrible’ Perfume
Finally, perfume is always a wonderful gift and this new Jean Paul Gaultier ‘La Belle Fleur Terrible’ Perfume is a stunner! It’s filled with notes of vanilla, iris, lily, bergamot and amber, but personally I think it’s got a wonderfully sweet, almond accord with earthy, dry florals and musk. It’s delightful and addictive! A true crowd pleaser!
