Gift Guide || Mother's Day

So now that Easter is officially over it is time to start thinking about the next important weekend - Mother's Day! Every year I leave my Mother's Day gift to the very last second  and have no idea what to get her... So this year I am getting in early and I am going to sort out what to get her gift early! I thought I would share this post to help you not leave it to the last minute as well! 

(Don't look mum...stop reading....YOU CAN'T KNOW)


Printiki*

Let's start with the sentimental option. There is something about Mother's Day that makes me want to create a sentimental gift for mum/ Something she can have and keep forever, regardless of whether my artistic skills were good or not! Well Printiki* has made that easy for you. You could get some photos printed to put in some frames, or make into a scrapbook, or even a photo book. There are so many options! 

I recently got some prints printed off from Printiki* to create a scrapbook of the past few years. I was really impressed with how quick they came and how great they were! I used my Instagram to select and print the photos from, but you can also upload from Facebook or straight from your computer. Simply select what sort of prints, or product you want to create and they will be printed for you and delivered to your door. 





Royal Essence Ring Candles*

Every mother loves candles doesn't she? Mine does at least...she always has a stack of candles ready to burn around the house! Well why not make that a little more exciting and gift her a Ring Candle! She can let it burn away as she patiently waits for the extra gift hiding beneath the wax. I remember when I was burning my Royal Essence Cinnamon Doughnut* candle my mum seemed a little jealous of the rings I discovered deep down inside. 

Give her that extra special something, the excitement that comes with finding the rings deep down inside. Plus they smell amazing and there is a scent for everyone!





Peony Parcel

Who needs more pampering than our Mothers? Probably no one. After all they do for us they deserve to have a little me time. Gift her a Peony Parcel to remind her to take some time for herself. You can gift the May box, which will arrive (hopefully) just in time for Mother's Day, with 3 to 5 travel and full size products to remind your Mum to take a few minutes of pampering for herself. 

You all probably know already that I love Peony Parcel, their boxes impress and amaze me every time. I think they would make the perfect Mother's Day gift!




Urban Rituelle*

We all have to shower (well I hope we do...we might get smelly otherwise), but we don't all have to use cheap, boring soap. Urban Rituelle has just released their new Harvest Wellness Cleansing Bars* that are the perfect gift for Mother's Day!  With six amazing different scents to choose from there is one for everyone. The best part is that they are free of any sulphates, parabens, synthetic fragrances or other nasties! 

If soaps aren't your thing, than have a scroll through the rest of their website, with a range of candles, hand creams and body wash products, among many others, there will definitely be something for ever Mum on there!


Natura Siberica*

After receiving my new favourite foot cream from Natura Siberica mum started to steal it from me...so I knew, without a doubt, that I needed to get her one so that she would STOP STEALING MINE! Let's hope she doesn't read this, because I am probably going to pick her up one of the Oblepikha Siberica Foot Cream* for her, so she will stop stealing mine.  Alternatively, if she's not a foot person, you could get the Oblepikha Siberica Hand Cream which trustworthy sources have told me is amazing.

If your mother is a bath person, I also recommend the Revitalising Bath Salts* which are some of my favourite. They make for the most relaxing bath ever. 




van Der faun Fragrances*

Last but not least, it's perfume. Perfume is the perfect present for Mother's! At least, we always seem to buy my Grandma a new perfume every year, so it must be! Well rather than getting one that might potentially damage her skin, why not get a beautiful natural perfume! van der Faun fragrances smell so gorgeous and are completely natural, with no nasty products that might potentially damage or irritate the skin!

There are two different scents to choose from: Hummingbird* a light, sweet and flirtatious scent; or River* a warm, spicy scent. Both are amazing choices that any woman would love. Plus look at how gorgeous the packaging is, who wouldn't love to see that on their vanity or in their bathroom everyday.



There it is! My top picks for this Mother's Day. If you can't choose just one, why not put together a little pamper basket or box to show her just how much you love and appreciate her. What will I be getting my mum? Could be a bit of this or a bit of that, but I can't really tell you in case she reads it! It must be a surprise!!!

  4. I wish my mom was into beauty. I would buy her so many things, haha. But since she's not, I always struggle with some special gifts, so it always ends up with some massages or spa recreation.

  9. Great ideas Laura! My Mum isn't into beauty (although I've kinda got her back into makeup recently) & isn't all that into being given gifts either. She'd be happy with a thoughtful card & some lottery tickets, that's how practical she is! That said, she'd probably enjoy me playing beautician & giving her a facial & a pedi though.
