Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Monday, 25 February 2013
I hope this post title hasn't alarmed you, its okay .. there's still a few weeks to go! Mothers day is Sunday 10th of March. 

Luckily for me (not) , it's also my dad's birthday that day. And my nephews birthday a few weeks later... Hence why I'm getting organised in advance! 

I don't tend to spend huge amounts on Mothers day or Fathers day. I think its a hugely over-commercialised event and, like Valentines day, I don't like to be forced into spending lots of money to prove my love for someone just because 'Clinton Cards' tells me to. I'm not a total event-scrooge though and I do love buying presents. I buy a small gift which usually involves flowers and sweets. 

I thought I'd show you some of the gift ideas I have for my mum this year. 
I know its not really a beauty related post, but there's a few beauty products in there and I thought it'd be a nice wee change. :) 
They're all around £20.00 which is what I would normally spend! 

UK Beauty and Fashion Blog

Yankee Candle in Waikiki Melon - This is my favourite smelling candle from the new range. I am obsessed with yankee candles! This one is like summer in a jar <3 Available here.

'Zig Zag' Collage Frame - I love these frames from Matalan and I think it would bea lovely gift to give a nice big frame full of nice family pictures. There are loads of different styles and sizes available at Matalan. :)

Shanghai Butterfly Chiffon Scarf - I always feel wary about buying clothes as a present but I think scarves are the perfect idea - it's hard to go wrong! This gorgeous scarf is lightweight for spring/summer... from Accesorize.

Origins Lavender and Vanilla Body Souffle - I love giving presents to someone that you know they'd love, but wouldn't necessarily buy themselves. I don't think my mum would treat herself to this because its quite pricey but I know she'd love it as a gift. I found this one at John Lewis. And who doesn't love lavender?!

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish & Muslin Cloths - I'm ordering this for myself pretty soon and thought it might be a good idea to get one for my mum aswell! Most mums like to take care of their skin and I've heard great things about this product! 

I hope you liked my gift ideas and I'd love to know what you ideas you have. 

Next, I have the impossible task of picking a birthday present for my dad. 

I'd also like to apologise for my infrequent posts over the last week. As you'll know from my constant moaning on twitter, I'm redoing my full bedroom (floors, wall, furniture, everything!) and its stressing me out big time! Should be back to normal in a week or so :-) 

Happy Monday! Only 5 days til the weekend! xxxx

Mothers Day Gift Ideas
  1. My Mum swears by Liz Earle cleanse and polish. I don't actually like it but thats just me. I'm sure your Mum will adore it! They are all such good idea's. I'm going to buy my Mum a M.A.C lipstick and possibly a yantra mat because she suffers from back pain and insomnia, hope it works and isn't a waste of money haha :D

    1. oh i haven't heard of those mats but that sounds like a good gift idea :) MAC lipsticks are the perfect gift as well because I think it would be impossible not to like them lol xxx

  2. That Candle sounds as though it smells amazing!
    My mam has an obsession with scarves so we bought herone, along with flowers and Chocolates, they're always the best option to go for! :D

    1. You need to go and smell it, its sooo good! My mums the exact same with scarves which is perfect because I always have someone to steal from lol xxx
