Mothers Day Gift Guide

Mothers day is fast approaching and so here is a little edit of some amazing gift ideas if you’re stuck for some inso.  But first I’m going to start off my mothers day gift guide with a little note to my mum:

My Mamma,

I don’t call you half as much as I should, I don’t text you half as much as I should but I know that whatever I’m doing you’re watching through the beady eyes of social media and probably showing everyone at work what I’m up to and telling the cashiers is Asda that I’m in this magazine or that magazine (as you buy their full stock of copies!) and it’s all done with such pride in your heart.  Well, it’s all down to you, the little business woman that I have become, the fashionista, the bargain hunter, the dream follower, the dream getter…you taught me to never give up and to work my ass off what I want in life and without that driving force behind me I would be nothing.  Oh and you’re also a pretty wicked wedding planner, cake baker, flower arranger and hot chocolate maker, to name but a few of your many talents!

Love you mum!

Skin Care
I really love Estee Lauder products and I know my mum does too so I’ve picked out a few things which are great for mums:
Advanced Night Repair
Revitalising Supreme Moisturiser
New Dimension Firm & Fill Eye System
New Dimension Plump & Full Expert Lip Treatment

Aerin’s luxurious products go hand in hand with Estee Lauder, plus this white & gold packaging is just the dream, treat your mum to this Body Cream and Body Wash

Make Up
As you all know I’ve recently fallen head over heels for the Tom Ford beauty range (as seen in this post) and I’m urging everyone to try it, so if your mum is a luxury lover then she certainly won’t say no to anything from the collection.
Another great beauty brand for mums is definitely Estee Lauder, I bet your mum already a fan of the famous Double Wear Foundation, so why not add to her Estee collection with an eyeshadow pallet, bronzer or hydrating lippie.

Make Up Brushes
Zoeva cosmetics do the most amazing range of make-up brushes, choose from one of their gorgeous brush sets and your mum will have all the tools she needs to get her glam on!

Sometimes you just can’t go wrong with fragrance, whether it be topping up on your mums fave scent or treating her to a new one, these are my current favourites:
Valentino Valentina
Tom Ford Noir
Bronnley Zealous Flower
Aerin Amber Musk
Chanel Chance Eau Tendre
Elie Saab Le Parfum


Sweet Treats
The boozier the better right?  Substitute that afternoon tea for a ‘Champagne tea’ (ok minus the the tea) with these Pink Marc De Champagne Truffles and a bottle of Moet & Chandon.  But of course followed by some Lolas Cupcakes

No reason, just because you love her!

White Croc Strap Watch – Abbott Lyon
Earrings – Rue Gembon

Scented Candles
It’s a fact, all mums (and all women for that matter) are suckers for a scented candle!  Treat your mum to one of Jo Malone’s new scents, personally I love the Mimosa & Cardamon!
Or perhaps this Indian Rose scented candle from Rituals.

Did you know Rituals made tea?  No I didn’t either until a couple of weeks back, but if your mum is a tea connoisseur then she will love these!  And why not surprise her with one of these Emma Bridgewater mugs, it’s got her name on it 😉
P.s. How cute is the Emma Bridgewater spoon?!

The White Company have the most beautiful collection of silver frames, so why not print off a special memory which she can keep for ever.
Scents bring memories back to life so check out their range of home fragrance.

I always order my flowers from Next.  I have never had an issue and they always arrive looking beautiful and last for weeks.  This is the Premium Florence Gift Bag Bouquet.
Order before 5pm on Saturday 5th March for delivery by Mothers Day.
