Mother’s day is fast approaching, so if you’ve yet to pick out something nice to give to your mum this Sunday, then maybe this gift guide will help! It’s a run down of my top 10 gifts for your mum, catering for all budgets…
Lancome La Vie est Belle – If you want to go down the perfume route, this would be my top pick this Mother’s Day. To me, this is a real ‘signature scent’, it’s powerful and instantly recognisable. It’s sweet, but I think it is better suited to more mature women. The bottle is stunning too. You can pick up a gorgeous gift set for £39 (£54 value) including free delivery here.
Isla Cashmere Scarf – OK, I admit it, this next gift is from my sister’s company, but I can’t tell you how much almost every woman in my life loves these scarves. They are 100% scottish cashmere, and therefore quite expensive, but definitely something to think about if you really want to treat your mum this year. They will last for years if cared for well and keep you warm and cozy in the winter months, while working well as an evening wrap in the summer. They’re also fabulously comforting when travelling, so if you have a jet-setter mum, this would go down well I’m sure! £145 each, available from IslaCashmere.com
All About Mum Chocolates – If chocolates are your mum’s thing, my chocolates of choice for gifting are always Hotel Chocolat. They’re not too expensive but always delicious, and they produce really pretty, original designs and flavours. Their ‘All About Mum’ Mother’s Day special selections are especially lovely this year. Available online and in-store, from £12.
A Picture-Perfect Frame – I spotted this photo frame the other day and fell in love with it instantly. The square mounts are perfect for framing Instagram pictures, so if you want to give your mum something to remember this year, why not add some gorgeous filters to your favourite photos together and pop them in a beautiful frame. This one is currently on sale for £26, from the Laura Ashley website.
Lov Organic Tea – If your mum is a tea fanatic, I would recommend taking a look at Lov’s website. These organic loose leaf teas not only taste delicious (my favourite is Winter in Lov) but they come in gorgeous tins that you can reuse and re-fill. For the perfect gift for tea-loving mums, why not buy her a cute tea pot, or a vintage teacup too? From £9 available from the Lov UK website.
Elizabeth Arden Prevage – My mum is a total skincare fanatic, so she’s tried her fair share of lotions and potions over the years. Her most coveted brand however, is Elizabeths Arden’s Prevage. The products are super pricey, so she doesn’t tend to buy them for herself very often, so I always know it’s a safe bet when it comes to Mother’s Day. My favourite product from the line is the triple defence SPF 50 moisturiser. It’s a little more affordable than the rest of the line at £65, but equally as luxurious and effective. Prevage is available from Elizabeth Arden counters nationwide, but Triple Defence is exclusive to, and Currently 10% off at John Lewis.
Lancome Teint Visionnaire – For any make-up obsessed mums out there, Lancome’s new Teint Visionnaire foundation would make a wonderful gift. It is a beautiful, natural finish foundation and concealer duo product with skincare benefits built-in. It has the same anti-ageing ingredients from Lancome’s bestselling Visionnaire serum (which is £80!) so it’s a triple-hitter and bound to be a hit with mum’s everywhere. £36 with free delivery here, or at Lancome counters nationwide.
REN Rose Trio Gift Set – Ren is one of those brands that once you fall in love with one of their products, you’re likely to become addicted to the whole range. The products are no-fuss on both the packaging and ingredient front, but they work. This little taster set of their divine rose body products is perfect for Mother’s Day, and it’s only £15, available from the Ren website.
Jo Malone Fragrance Diffuser – You can never fail with Jo Malone for Mother’s Day (or any occasion really!) but my personal favourite product from the brand (and the one that I think is perhaps the best value-for-money) are the fragrance diffusers. These are so potent, the scent is likely to carry around your entire house, and they last for months. My personal favourite is the divine Pomegranate Noir. £45 each, available from the Jo Malone website, or counters nationwide.
The White Company Candles – If candles are your mum’s thing, then my pick this year has got to be The White Company’s ‘Noir’ 2-wick candle. The White Company candles always get a thumbs up in my book, as they are equally as lovely as many other high-end candles, but half the price of many (here’s looking at you Diptyque!) The Noir 2-Wick is a little more expensive at £35 compared to £20 for the singles, but the scent is to-die-for and I love the sleek black glass packaging. Available from The White Company Website, or in store.
What will you be getting your mum this Mother’s Day?
