Mother’s Day Gift Guide + GIVEAWAY!
Mothering Sunday is upon us and I’m really excited to share with you some of the amazing gifts I’ve found this year that would be the perfect present for any Mum or Mum to be!
What’s more, I’ve got an amazing giveaway running for you to win your very own Wax Lyrical Hillside boxed candle glass! (More on this absolutely gorgeous product later…)
Since becoming a Mum, Mother’s Day has become one of my favourite days of the year. For a start it always falls on a Sunday so there’s never any chance I’ll be stuck in work and secondly it’s a day just for me to celebrate doing the best job in the whole world!
I have my own Mum and Mother-in-law to celebrate too, so as well as being on the look out for gorgeous gifts my
son husband can get me, it’s important I find gorgeous gifts that they will love too. Here is a pick of my favourite gifts this year.
Hempz Skincare Range
Hempz have got a huge range of skin, hair, sun and sunless products which are enriched with 100% hemp seed oil which is rich in vitamins and proteins. The result is a luxurious range of products which leave your skin and hair feeling nourished and revitalised. I love the body wash and moisturiser which both smell divine and leave my skin feeling brand new: the perfect gift for a new Mum who is feeling a bit run down due to lack of sleep. The body wash is priced at £16.99, lip balm is £7.99 and the body scrub is £17.99.
Dartington Crystal Vases
Dartington have just become my favourite brand of quality crystal glassware. I adore having flowers around the house as soon as there is the smallest hint that spring is on its way but trying to find a quality vase can be tough. They have a huge range of products which are perfect to give to any Mum this Mother’s Day but my favourite is this Cushion Vase in Heather which just looks gorgeous filled with my favourite flowers. For the budget conscious there’s even a section on their website dedicated to gifts £25 and under as well as the opportunity to personalise any gift you choose.
Olverum Bath Oil
Olverum bath oil is made up of ten essential oils and is the perfect addition to your bath to help relieve tension, ease aching muscles and create a relaxing environment for any hard working Mum. Available from Harvey Nicks, Fenwick and House of Fraser, Olverum will make the perfect gift for any Mum who wants to improve their wellbeing and feel renewed this Mothering Sunday. The travel set with three small sample sizes is priced at £19.
Naissance Bath Bomb Kits
I am always on the look out for a gift that is a little bit different so this year I was happy to stumble upon Naissance’s bath bomb kits. There isn’t a Mum on this earth who doesn’t love a good bath bomb and this kit lets those craftier type Mums create their own before relaxing in a hot bath with it fizzing away. Priced at only £16.99, this bath bomb kit is a great present for those on a budget.
NeoStrata Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum
NeoStrata have released this amazing serum which is used by celebrities such as Jess Glynne, Louise Redknapp and Elle MacPherson. It’s triple acting formula volumises and sculpts the skin reducing the appearance of wrinkles and firming the skin. My Mum always told me that using an anti-aging cream was a good idea from the age of twenty and I am totally in love with this one! Priced at £79.00 it’s at the other end of the spectrum budget wise, but seriously who can put a price on fewer wrinkles and firmer looking skin? God knows my skin has seen a battering since becoming a Mum and I know need to decide whether to keep this product for myself or gift it as a Mother’s Day present!
Wax Lyrical Candles
Wax Lyrical are my new favourite candle company and what’s more they’re northern! They are based in the Lake District and have a fantastic range of candles, fragrances and diffusers. I love to burn candles all year around, but especially in the winter to warm up the room and create a floral scent when there’s about as much chance of me opening a window as there is me giving up my obsession with coffee. This beautiful hillside candle not only looks gorgeous but leaves a scent of rolling countryside hills making you feel like you are up in the Lakes on a warm Spring evening. This particular candle is priced at £21.99 but there are candles to suit every budget on the Wax Lyrical website.
I am offering one lucky reader the chance to win their own freshly fragrant Hillside candle from Wax Lyrical. All you have to do is enter below. Winner will be drawn on 17th March 2018 at 10am and will be informed by email. T&Cs apply.
