So for Mother’s Day all I really want is to spend time with my little family, maybe go to the beach for a walk or be treated to a nice lunch out.
If I were to be purchased something and this truly is the biggest hint I can make, ahem ahem, then here are a few things I would love.
I really love my crafts so gift wise top of my wish list would be one of the amazing Sizzix machines. I tried one at the Handmade Christmas Fair and I have been lusting after it ever since, cutting amazing patterns into card and felt it could take my crafting to a whole new level.
A box of Cadbury Milk Tray would go down a treat, the iconic box is bursting with tempting flavours, from the old classics of Hazelnut Swirl and Perfect Praline, to future favourites Apple Crunch and Salted Caramel Charm. This gift has the added bonus of making everyone in the house happy.
There’s not much better then a long, hot, relaxing bath and Dove have some brilliant sets available for Mother’s Day. To make them even more special you can head to the Dove website and personalise them, get your message printed on the box and pick from a selection of beautiful wrappings to make it really special.
The bookworm in me just loves this range of clutch bags from the Natural History Museum. Lost in the Apothecary is a deep red clutch bag that comes complete with shoulder and wrist straps. With brushed gold corner protectors and beautiful floral detailing on the front, this bag is delightful and I love that the lining has a page print design to complete the authentic look.
I have wanted one of these personalised lockets for as long as I can remember. The David Deyong ones are just perfect as they have little mini opal charms you can add and opals are my favourite stone.
A little organic luxury from Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps. With unscented Baby Mild and eight other sweetly-scented soaps to choose from – Lavender, Green Tea, Eucalyptus, Citrus, Almond, Rose, Tea Tree and Peppermint, Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps are not only great value for money, but their 18-in-1 uses are a multi-tasking helping hand around the house for every mother.
I’m a bit obsessed with light therapy and it’s benefits at the moment so a Lumie Bodyclock is just the best thing, helping you to drift off naturally and wake up gently. The Lumie Active 250 comes with a radio, white noise maker, dawn chorus function and so much more making it an ideal gift.
Pretty and useful this one is more for my mum than me, Ahmad Tea produce stunning tea caddies filled with the finest loose leaf tea and they make the perfect gift this Mother’s Day. From the traditional English Breakfast Tea and aromatic Earl Grey, to the more exotic Ceylon and Orange Blossom there is a gift to suit every tea taste.
So that I can get a few minutes peace and quiet a new case for the iPad, a new case that can be dropped from 6ft and is therefore immune to toddler tantrums is always going to be well received. The BLOK cases from Logitech are stylish, practical and you can even get one with a keyboard so it great for working on the go as well.
The perfect personalised gift for people who love to travel, or have special memories linked to special places the El Camino bracelets are perfect. There are so many places that are special to me, I got married in America, too my first overseas blog trip in Rome, not to mention all those other amazing places I’ve been, Paris, Barcelona, Brugges, all over the UK, Norway, Andorra the list goes on. These bracelets allows you to tell your travel story.
I always enjoying giving a gift hamper, I love receiving them as well. Sometimes it can be hard to know where to start, so that’s why I love the free downloads that Wayfair have created. All the labels you need to create the perfect hamper for Mother’s Day, just pick up some lovely gifts, make a few bits, wrap and decorate.
Disclosure – I was gifted some of these products for inclusion in my article, but I wouldn’t have added them if I didn’t genuinely think they were fab.
