Mothers Day Gift Guide
Mother’s Day in Australia is just around the corner on Sunday 8th May and now my mum is over from the UK (yes!), we now always celebrate the Australian Mother’s Day here. So I’ve been thinking about the kind of gift she might love and, of course, what I love as a mum of 2 myself. Here is my Mothers Day gift guide for 2016 and a chance for my Australian readers to win a gorgeous prize for their Mum!
I love receiving jewellery, what Mum doesn’t? How about a lovely personalised necklace for bracelet.
I love this beautiful necklace from BroxRocks. You can customise it with your choice of hand stamped initials on solid sterling silver or gold vermeil nugget charms and the necklace arrives beautifully presented in its own gift box.
2. A lie in
“A what?” I hear you ask! What I’d give for an uninterrupted night sleep and lie in!
Well, the uninterrupted sleep might be a bit much to ask for some Mums but how about treating your Mum to a lie in or at least a few hours to herself to relax, read a book, paint her toe nails or just do nothing!
My Mum works so hard at home and during my treatment for breast cancer, she has kept the house looking immaculate – it’s never been cleaner and tidier!
She never takes enough time for herself though, to relax and pamper herself. A lot of Mums are the same, aren’t they? Pampering gifts are always such a lovely treat so perhaps I’ll take her out with me and we can get our nails done.
I also love this at-home Gel Manicure Set from Sally Hansen so if I can’t persuade her to come on a trip to the salon, I might treat her to a manicure in the comfort of her own home. You can see my tutorial on how to use the kit here.
My mum loves hand cream and given her cleaning addiction, I think it’s a must have in her handbag! We both love the hand cream from Yes! Nurse.
The company was founded by Antonia, a Paediatric nurse, who wanted to make a hand cream that would heal her hands, damaged and sore from her job.
In the Yes! Nurse gift set, you get the Yes! Nurse Protect Your Lovely Hands hand cream and some lovely moisture mittens to wear over night!
My Mum and I both share a love for perfume and love many of the same scents. She’s had her eye on a lovely solid perfume balm from Miessence that I’ve been using so I know she would love one for herself!
It features aromas from certified organic rose, jasmine, ylang yang and orange blossom together with the warmth of vanilla.
I love that it’s so compact and can fit into a handbag or even your purse for a night out. I apply it on my wrists, neck and other pulse points which release the scent softly throughout the day.
This is a limited edition item just for Mother’s Day!
