With Valentine’s Day well and truly out of the way, it’s time to get ready to celebrate how amazing your mother is! In the UK, Mother’s Day is on the 11th March but it’s slowly creeping up on all of us. I thought I would provide you with a little gift guide that might be a little helpful for you. Last year, I had flowers delivered to the door with a balloon and treated my mum to a lovely Indian meal. She loved feeling number one for the day so sometimes it can just be the little things.
Jewellery is always a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. There’s nothing wrong with a lovely pair of earrings such as this pair of daisy earrings from Daisy London. I love how cute and dainty they are; and not to mention they are a perfect addition for Spring/Summer. This bracelet is actually from ChloBo and can be the perfect gift for mothers who prefer wearing a little something on their wrist along with their watch but not into statement jewellery. I love how it looks a lot more expensive than the bracelet actually was. I think the pearl elephant bracelet* is just so unique and something different to the usual heart or flower that you tend to see throughout jewellers. I encourage to you have a look on the Browns Family Jewellers website because they really do have some beautiful gifts, especially for Mother’s Day.
If you are on the look out for a bit more of a luxury Mother’s Day gift then you could always opt for her favourite perfume. I think you tend to have two types of mothers: the one who has an array of perfumes that she likes to mix up or the one who sticks to that particular scent and doesn’t really change it up that often. Chanel No. 5 is a popular choice however if your looking for a cruelty free option then I highly recommend checking out the Eden Perfumes. You can actually search which scent would be similar to a non-cruelty free contender on their website and it automatically comes up with one similar. For example when I wanted a cruelty free option to my mother’s favourite it came up with Eden Number Five Floral Aldehyde* a timeless and legendary fragrance made up of a floral bouquet of flowers.
Another perfume line that you could also look at if your wanting something a bit more luxurious is Clive Christian. They have a range of exquisite fragrances crafted with rare and precious ingredients. I had a bit of a look into them and realised that they are actually cruelty free. You could also take a look at The Library of Fragrance, my personal favourite cruelty free perfume brand. They have a lovely selection to choose from. My current favourite is Fresh Laundry however I have tried and tested plenty of their scents.
If your mother is into beauty and skincare and your rather confident with what she likes then you could treat her to a Latest In Beauty ‘Build Your Own Box’*. They kindly let me try out their Beauty Guru Package which meant I got to choose nine products to put into a perfectly gifted box. They have three monthly options available: The Beauty Guru (£18) for 9 products, The Beauty Enthusiast (£15) for 6 products or The Beauty Novice (£9) or 3 products. It’s free delivery on all of the box subscriptions and you can cancel at anytime. Rather than subscribing to a monthly box, you can also pay as a one-off payment which can be a lovely treat for Mother’s Day.
There’s a lovely range of products available and after some research I manage to choose nine cruelty free products. The products I went for were: Being by Sanctuary Spa Makeup Bag, The Green Parent Natural Beauty Bible 2017, MUA Twelfth Night Winter Shades, Lord & Berry Crayon Lipstick in Fire, Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Blush Basin, The Library of Fragrance Spray in Gin & Tonic, Weleda Pomegranate Body Lotion, Amie Purifying Facial Wash and Amie Matte-Finish Moisturiser.
Finally you can’t go wrong with a box of chocolates. There are so many options available for mother’s so it’s about choosing one of her favourites. A classic option that you could go for is an indulgent box of Guylian’s Belgian chocolates. They are so creamy to taste and melt in your mouth texture that your mum would love with a glass of wine in the evening or with or morning cup of tea. There’s an option to go for the classic Sea Shells* or you could try the Guylian’s Mater’s Selection with some rather unusual flavours such as ginger-lime, or caramel with Costa Rican pineapple. Guylian’s Belgian chocolates are available from most major supermarkets.
Hotel Chocolat always have amazing special occassion chocolates too. I picked up their Mother’s Day H-Box which has 14 of the best-loved chocolates including: Champagne Truffle, The Brownie (a personal fave) and Cherry Deluxe.
I hope this post has given you some inspiration for what to get your mum. Have any of these taken your fancy? What have you got in store for your mother this year?
