Mother's Day Gift Guide

REMINDER. It's Mother's Day on Sunday! If you're anything like me then you still won't have picked anything up just yet. In fact, if I wasn't writing this post (or yesterday's) then it would have barely crossed my mind. Oopsie. 

For Every Mum

Yes. Trust me, every Mum will LOVE this. I wrote a post with The White Company yesterday on their Mother's Day gifting and just wanted to reaffirm that I really do blooming love it.  The stunning but simple white packaging is what always gets me and I generally find it hard to narrow down what I want from them - and gifting is no different. The White Company have a great Mother's Day gift guide on site but my top pick from the brand is the Seychelles Luxury Gift Set, £49. The set includes a signature candle (around 28 hours burn time), a bath and shower gel (250ml), a body lotion (250ml) and a triple milled soap (150g) all in the incredible Seychelles scent. 

For The Tea Addict

Everyone knows someone that loves tea - and if that's your Mum, you need to get your hands on this set. The Clipper Tea's A Sublime Selection Gift Set, £12 includes a selection of teas (60 envelopes to be precise) across the Skinni Vanilli, Happy Mondays, Skinny Mintie, Snore & Peace, Calmer Chameleon and Flower Power flavours - delicious!

For The Makeup Addict 

Clarins have released the Tender Moment's range for Mother's Day. If you're Mum likes makeup and you want to get a little soppy then this range is definitely worth eyeing up. The Skin Illusion Blush, £16 and the Daily Energiser Lovely Lip Balm, £16 makes up this collection filled with love and kisses (and embossed with them too). The products are natural looking - so won't be too bright or bold for your Mum but a really lovely, and sweet addition to her makeup bag. 

For The Skincare Addict

If I wanted to treat my Mum skincare-wise then Decleor would most definitely be one of my go-to options. For one, my Mum (and most Mum's) know the brand so they know the luxurious quality of it and two, it delivers. The Decleor Recharge Your Life Awakening Box, £35 is a lovely idea. It encompasses the wellness trend and gives you what you need to have a pamper - and give your skin a glow boost too for, as they say, "total body radiance". I love this idea and the notebook is super cute too. 

For The Mum With A Sweet Tooth

Crabtree & Evelyn are so well known for their hand creams, and rightly so - they are some of the best but this Mother's Day I'm talking the lesser known part of the brand - the food. Crabtree & Evelyn do some of the most delicious treats and the Limited Edition All Butter Rose & White Chocolate Biscuits, £5 are a must-buy for any Mum's with a sweet tooth. Pick up one of the mini hand creams, like the Rosewater Hand Therapy, £6 to go alongside it for pink perfection. 

For The Au Natural Mum 

Know someone that goes down the natural route for beauty products? This year Balance Me have launched a gift set featuring their best selling Rose Otto range - a personal favourite of mine. The Balance Me Balancing Rose Otto Gift Set, £40 is a great option for Natural lovers or Mum's with sensitive skin as the products are great and come in generous sizes - steer clear though if they're not a fan of a rose scent. It smells delicious if they are however. 

For the Sanctuary Obsessive

Much like everyone knows someone that loves tea, everyone also knows someone that loves Sanctuary. It can be a bit of a Marmite brand but it's on such a high at the moment and this budget friendly gift set is sure to bring a big smile to your Mum's face. Pick up the Sanctuary With Love Mother's Day Gift, £22 for the wow factor without breaking the bank.  

For The Mum Who Loves A Throwback 

If you mention Vera Wang Princess to any girl, they've got a story. Whether they owned it and adored it when they were younger or it was so high up on their wishlist they literally couldn't reach it - it's part of most girls stories, and Mum's will most definitely rememeber that. Vera Wang have recently released the latest addition to the Princess range - the Vera Wang Princess Of Hearts EDT, £19.99. 

Fragrance notes: Top notes of Bergamot, Watermelon, Wild Strawberry. Heart notes of Lily of the Valley, Star Jasmine. Base notes of Cedar, Musk, Vanilla. 

It's a sweet as the original scent but a little bit more "wearable" today. It's sweet, it doesn't break the bank and it's a lovely memory-inducing beauty gift that gives so much more than just the fragrance. Now let's not forget the secret ring on the bottle...

For The Difficult-To-Buy-For Mum

If your Mum is one of those, 'I've got everything' or 'I don't really like anything' kind of women then picking up products that everyone uses in their everyday lives are a great option. No7 doesn't break the bank but also is great quality for what you get. The No7 Indulgence Collection, £25 includes everyday essentials like hand cream and body wash in a beautifully packaged gift set. The products are nicely sized and I adore the pretty Spring-like packaging of the products. 

For The Mum Who's Not A Gift Set Fan

I know quite a few people who think that gift sets around "gift giving" times are the absolute bane of their life and so finding that one product to give to someone who feels this way can often be a little on the difficult side. I'd generally recommend picking up something from The White Company - as like I said earlier in the post, they really can do no wrong in my eyes and are the perfect spot for a gift. But as I've already raved about them, I'm going to give another option. The Cochine Saigon Vietnamese Rose & Delentii Scented Candle, £45 is a great option. From the beautiful packaging to the luxurious scented candle in side - it's a great option to treat your Mum all year round.
