With Mother’s Day just around the corner you may be in somewhat of a quandary as to what to buy the special mum in your life. I’ve put together some ideas of the things I’d like to be given to me or things I think would make lovely gifts to give.
Who doesn’t love flowers? I love that they can be given relatively inexpensively yet still look beautiful and caring. Flowers never fail to make me smile.
As a mum of four I like to try and keep myself looking….dare I say it glam?! Perhaps not for the school run but for a night out or special occasion I love to feel great about myself. Receiving beauty products, particularly ones I’ve never tried, is something I love.
I think we can all get stuck in a rut buying the same beauty products we know and love but imagine having 100,000’s beauty products at your fingertips and in the comfort of your own home? Cosmetify is just that – a search engine for beauty lovers. With products and brands from hair care and makeup to skin care you’ll be spoilt for choice.
And by that I don’t mean diamonds (although that would be nice…) I mean costume jewellery or a sentimental keepsake with your children’s handprints or initials on. I love to have a choice of jewellery to match with my outfits and there are so many options out there on the high street you don’t need to break the bank to spoil your mum.
We’ve recently come back from a spa break as a couple but I’d happily go along on my own or with my mum or a friend and spend some down time just flicking through magazines and relaxing. Even if you don’t have a treatment just hanging out in a spa is sometimes enough to make you feel like you’ve had some time off being mum.
A good book
I rarely have time to read but I love books and reading (I guess that’s why I love blogging too) but I’d love a voucher to buy books or even a book subscription set up for me. Being given a book is great because it takes all the indecision away about what to read!
