Mother’s Day in the UK is less than a week away and if you’re wondering what to spoil the most important woman in your life with, I’ve got you covered. Whether she loves receiving fresh flowers, her signature scent or some yummy chocolates, my gift guide has something for everyone and for all budgets.
Let’s start off with perfumes and I always recommend my favourite to any lover of floral, full-bodied scents – Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. It’s my signature scent and I won’t ever be without a bottle, it’s the most gorgeous perfume ever. If she prefers less florally sweet perfumes, have a look at Calvin Klein’s CK One Gold, it’s a unisex fragrance containing patchouli, bergamot and fig. I had a smell of this whilst on holiday and it’s amazing! Not to mention, the bottle is pretty fab too. Other great perfumes include Dior J’Adore, Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream and Jo Malone Basil & Neroli.
If your Mum is a beauty fiend, there are lots of fab gift sets you can treat her to. Such as the L’Occitaine x Rifle Paper Co Shea Collection which contains a rich body cream, body scrub and hand cream and not only that, it’s all housed in a gorgeous tin designed by Rifle Paper Co. I need this myself! Ted Baker’s Porcelain Rose Garden Toiletries collection is a gorgeous set of lotions, washes and bubble baths.
Other fab beauty gifts include the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette which contains 16 stunning matte and shimmer shades and it also smells delicious! The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is a timeless classic and would make a great addition to your mother’s make up bag. You could also take her for an Estee Lauder makeover at a counter near you where she can be shade matched so you can ensure you get the right shade! Throw in a bit of retail therapy and a yummy meal and it’ll be a perfect girly day out.
I think candles can make the perfect gift if the recipient likes them, of course. This would be a big no-no for my own mother! My favourite at the moment is the Diptyque Roses Candle, the scent is beautiful and I just love how luxurious these candles look. The limited edition Rose Delight would make an ideal gift, just look at that packaging! If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly offering, you can’t go wrong with Yankee Candles. The small jars are only £8.99 and come in a range of different, gorgeous scents such as Fresh Cut Roses, Peony and Clean Cotton. If you’re willing to spend a bit more, you can get the large jar candles personalised!
For the more traditional gifts, you can’t go wrong with a lovely bouquet of flowers – stores like Marks & Spencer and Interflora have a great range whatever her favourites may be. Pamper your Mum with a spa day or treat her to some mouth-watering chocolates and sparkling prosecco.
