With Mother's Day just around the corner (it's this Sunday!) here's a few ideas to help if you need to buy a last minute gift, or just need a bit of inspiration. Every year my Mum says that she only wants some daffodils for Mother's Day, but of course, I have a few extra treats for her this year!
And make sure you scroll down to see how you can win a £50 shopping or restaurant voucher so you can treat your Mum!
A nice box of chocolates is a must for Mother's Day. I doubt that there is a Mum on the planet that doesn't want to wake up on Sunday to be presented with a sweet treat! This stunning box of chocolate is called 'The Mother’s Day Sleekster' from Hotel Chocolat and includes 27 of their finest recipes in milk, dark, white and caramel chocolate.
The menu includes a variety of chocolates, from pralines to desserts and fruity truffles to tipsy ones. My eyes are drawn to the Billionaire’s Shortbread, Fudge Sundae and the Carrot Cake! I hope my Mum will share with me...
Simple jewellery makes a great gift for any occasion, and this beautiful bracelet from ChloBo would make the perfect Mother's Day present. All ChloBo jewellery is inspired by the island of Bali, but handcrafted in the UK.
This delicate charm bracelet is made from sterling silver and features tiny round beads and a pretty elephant charm which symbolises peace and good luck. The bracelets can be worn on their own, or stacked with others for a statement look. The bracelet comes beautifully packaged too, in a sleek gift box and inside a bag, along with special care instructions and a mini catalogue.
Bath and body goodies such as these also make a wonderful gift for Mother's Day. Yardley London has been famous for creating luxury fragrances and soaps ever since they started in 1770, and their products are still made in the UK today. The quintessentially English brand even has a Royal Warrant by appointment to H.M. Queen Elizabeth II - a seal of honour only given to the very finest British companies.
Nevertheless, these products from Yardley are great value and very affordable, with their eau de toilette range currently only £6.66 in Boots! Their English Freesia collection has a refreshing, light citrus floral fragrance, whereas the more modern Royal Pink Diamond range has a fresh, fruity scent.
If you aren't able to give your Mum a gift in person this year, why not surprise her and order some flowers to be delivered straight to her door? Homeland Florists offer FREE delivery on all orders, even on Mothering Sunday! The family run business is based in a real physical high street store in Northampton, and has been established for over 35 years.
I received this beautiful bouquet of flowers to try today, and they are so pretty! The bouquet is made up of an arrangement of pale pink gerbra, pure white avalanche roses and alstroemeria. Flowers never fail to bring a smile to my face, and a stunning bouquet like this is certain to make your Mum smile too!
Sass & Belle
Pretty little trinkets make wonderful gifts for Mother's Day, and Sass & Belle have plenty to chose from! They do lots of adorable little vintage style gifts which I think my Mum would love!
Firstly, the 'My Family' photo frame is a beautiful classic style and is made out of solid mango wood, carved with hearts on either side. I'm going to find and print out a photo of our whole family and pop it in the frame to give my Mum on Sunday. She'll be so pleased to have a photo of all of us together!
The delicate little milk bottle 'wild flowers vase' is a gorgeous dainty little vase which will be perfect for topping up with flowers from her garden every so often. I popped in a little sprig of flowers from the above bouquet and it looks so sweet! And finally, this handmade fabric elephant keyring makes a lovely little gift! My Mum loves elephants so I'm sure she will be thrilled to receive this!
