Mothers Day Gift Guide and Competition

This gift guide has been developed to inspire you all with some fantastic ideas about what to buy this Mothers Day (March the 15th).  If you find it tricky sourcing the perfect gift you will be well accommodated here as I have such a lovely line up to introduce to you.

Flowers

You cannot go wrong with a flower delivery and Appleyard Flowers have a particularly gorgeous selection available.  They are such a luxurious company; your flowers arrive beautifully presented and last so well.

My mum was the lucky recipient of the mothers day flowers sent for my blog and she had such a contented look on her face when she received them.  Flowers always bring joy to my mum and the Liberty bouquet is simply stunning!

It’s a gift she really appreciates and its lovely you can include a personal message to complete the gift.  At £49.99 any mum will feel truly spoilt and special with attractive fresh flowers.

Chocolates

If your mum has a sweet tooth then you could consider a chocolate gift.  Guylian chocolates have brought out some new additions that are nothing short of delicious.  We sampled the Crunchy Biscuit and Caramel Sea Horses.

I really like the design and with an RSP of £4 each they are such a reasonable gift to buy.  They do look considerably more expensive.  The taste and presentation would fool you into thinking that they cost significantly more.  They are available to buy from the Guylian shop.

Personalised Jewellary

I have always wanted to have a chain with my boys names and hand prints on, bella & bow made my dream come true.  This has been my most favourite item from the gift guide, a beautiful dainty heart charm necklace (£50).  The gift wrapping is nothing short of gorgeous, a lovely gift box and beautiful ribbon tied around it.  It feels like a very luxurious present and the necklace itself was everything I wished for and more.

I cannot think of a more precious gift for a mother than one involving their own children.  Our children are our worlds so its natural we would want jewellary we can treasure forever.  The ordering process was very easy, we were sent a kit with clear instructions on how to provide handprints of my boys.  It comes with tips if you are trying to get the handprint of a baby or young child, like attempt to do it when they are sleeping or eating.  You use the magic wipe making sure you cover all the fingers (or toes depending if you wanted a footprint), then press down on the special coated paper. You can have a few attempts, as many as you can fit on the paper and then use an arrow to indicate your favourite, I think that's a useful suggestion in case one of the hand prints does not work out properly and you have a preference.



You can choose to have keyrings, charm beads, necklaces, charm bracelets and cuff links. They have really thought of everything, including a set if you wanted your pets paw print!  You can tell a lot of care and attention is put into these products and the packaging.  All the handcrafted charms are individually hand polished so they are so shiny and absolutely stunning. My necklace is very delicate and pretty I think I will never take it off!  bella & bow aim to bring a smile to their customers face and they certainly achieved that.

As a small independent company they have excellent customer service, they pride themselves in being friendly and approachable.  I would gladly recommend them for gifts this Mothers day.

Practical Gifts

We were sent a Selfie Stick (£20) from Case Hut, these are really growing in popularity and I was desperate to try one out.  I think lots of parents are glad of a chance to finally take pictures all together as a family.  Otherwise a parent tends to be on photo duty and you do not have as much opportunity to document memories the same for the future, on top of that they can be lots of fun on girly nights out!  It’s good for mums to let their hair down, unwind and take some crazy snaps for future reminiscing.



I was pleased with the arrival of the EasyLock (£29.95), mums are always concerned about safety and although this is not a traditional gift it will certainly bring lots of reassurance.  I thought it was a useful gift to feature because I actually would be glad to receive it myself.  Often when we stay at hotels for blog events I do not sleep as soundly as I should.  A big part of this is down to a cleaning lady once leaving her security pass in our room, I just thought about what could have happened if it fell into the wrong hands.  But with the easy lock I can add my own extra security and actually get a decent nights sleep again.  If you’re a woman travelling alone or an elderly person it will make all the difference giving you comfort and a sense of security.



Baking

As a family we love making cookies, they are just such a tasty treat we do have one difficulty and that’s getting them the right size, we tend to make them far too big and then they do not cook quite as well.  It’s obviously a trial and error process and you can learn by your mistakes or you can just make it so much easier with an OXO Good Grips Cookie Press (£26.00).  Using this clever gadget each of your cookies are then the perfect size all consistent and gorgeous!  As with all of the Good Grips range it is very comfortable to use.



It is quite an exciting item because it brings lots of fun to your cookies; the stainless steel discs bring 12 different shapes to your cookies.  Children will love seeing the shaped cookies, trees, flowers, snowflakes and a teddy to name but a few.  Once created and cooled you can them decorate them with piped icing I think there will be no going back to thick slightly burnt cookies for us!  Keep an eye on our instagram account we will be showing some of our creations over the next few weeks.

Brabantia have some lovely products to bring a splash of colour to your kitchen.  I think this baking set is particularly useful, ideal for any budding chefs.  It has a special promotional price at the moment of £38.50, which is very fair given it includes a mixing bowl, kitchen scales and adorable cookie cutters.  It's great to have functional products but ones that look stylish too.



It is available in red or mint (pictured), I actually have a mint set to giveaway so do not forget to enter the competition at the bottom of the page.

I like how Brabantia have developed a page of inspiration, so you can see which of their products you will love.  Is it wrong that I am excited by a scented bin!!!  We have just had a Brabantia ironing board arrive and its amazing, again household items might not necessarily be your first choice for gifts but if they make your life easier then why not!

Candles

I find nothing more soothing than burning candles at the end of a stressful day.  Candlelight is renowned for being relaxing and calming; us mums certainly need to take every opportunity to unwind at the end of a long day parenting!

Yankee Candles have an extensive range of gorgeous scented candles for every possibly occasion.  We were sent the Mum small pillar candle (£9.99), which smelt of fresh cut roses, it makes a wonderful gift because it’s presented as an attractive tumbler and has a long burn time (35 to 45 hours).  The fragrance would make your house smell divine and it is a pretty colour, a delicate pink.  The Mum wording is what makes this stand out as the candle for Mothers day.



If you prefer something more unusual the Alusi Candles are just the thing.  They are sculptured works of art; they make for a striking centrepiece to any dinner table.  We were sent two from the range, but they do get more and more elaborate.  Seeing them lit you see the true beauty, they are such sophisticated candles.  I like the multi wick aspect to enjoy more flickering candlelight; these are candles at their most innovative.  I must admit I was hard pressed to burn these candles, it was tempting to keep them for decoration.

Lighting candles can now be made easier with a Zippo Candle Lighter (£13.75) these are so handy to have if you regularly light candles, much easier than having to dig out some matches or try your luck using the hob!  It’s a nifty little gadget for the price and looks a quality item.  This would make a welcome accompanying gift to go alongside any candle purchases you might make this Mothers day.



Wine

A bottle of wine can make a thoughtful gift; it’s worth seeking advice from a wine merchant if you’re a little clueless like me.  Or you can just keep to what you know your mum likes rather than attempt to give them an education in wine.

We were sent a bottle of Echo Falls Fruit Fusions (Summer Berries) available from Tesco and Asda for £5,75.  This was an exceptionally sweet wine, the flavour of the summer berries was lovely but I found it a little too sweet for my taste.  


A photo posted by Karen (@missingsleep) on

Someone I know suggested diluting it down with tonic water and I think that was an excellent idea and would make for a refreshing drink.  Lots of people do have a sweeter palate though so for them the Fruit Fusions range would be an excellent match.  I am quite keen to sample the White Peach and Mango that sounds quite interesting.


You can make a wine gift that bit extra special with a service from GiftsOnline4U, they have a personalized pewter shield shaped label on them with “I love you” and your own choice of message (up to 60 characters).  I had a message for my mum so I am looking forward to March the 15th and seeing her pleased face as it’s such a unique and lovely idea.  You can pick from three choices (white, red or rose) and the gift looks quite exclusive.  It costs £29.99 including delivery which is worth the cost if you want to try something that bit different this Mothers day.  I think the label looks very attractive and elaborate on the bottle, perhaps after the wine is enjoyed a candle can be added and the bottle become a decorative keepsake.


Beauty

It’s always lovely to receive beauty gifts; us parents need to find time to pamper ourselves and feel desirable.  Usually I look like I have been dragged into a hedge backwards but making more of an effort gives you increased confidence and a renewed look at life.  So this Mother’s day perhaps you could spoil your mum with a hamper of beauty treats.  Here are a couple of suggestions to fill it with.

Finding time to shave your legs in the rush of a hectic daily routine can be hard, but the Venus Sugarberry razor (RRP £10.99) is very pleasant to use, with five blades it gives a close shave (so you do not have to shave as often!) and the Olay moisturising bar ensures you also have a comfortable experience too with less dryness and discomfort.  The gorgeous Sugarberry scent makes the whole experience that much more agreeable too.



I especially like the new Venus Snap (RRP £9.99) it’s so convenient for travel with its own protective case and its dinky size.  It’s so useful just wetting the skin and starting to shave you do not need to bring any extra shaving gel along with you, which would make your wash bag heavier.  It truly is a portable razor.  You can find out more information on these razors from https://www.facebook.com/GilletteVenusUK.

I was sent a selection of Creightons products being available from Poundland you know your getting an absolute bargain but what I had not counted on was getting such fabulous products for the price.  I was sent the Scrubaholic Face Scrub (£1) it had a lovely smell and seemed really effective at cleaning my skin.  They have quite a lot of choice as part of this Squeeky Clean range; all the items are £1 and seem to revolve around the sweet smells of raspberry and pomegranate and leave you feeling radiant.

Intensive treatments for your hair are usually quite pricey but not so if you head to Poundland again and pick out the Keratin Pro 2 Minute Miracle, these are professional products but at silly prices really!  It seems crazy to pay more when you can get quality effective products at these prices.  My hair felt much better after its treatment, less flyaway and out of control (the hedge look was smoothed out!!!).


Braun have lots of options for Mothers day, their products are designed with busy women in mind, ones that want to look their best but have little free time to themselves.  I was sent the Silk-épil SkinSpa (£169.99). This epilator is so efficient it can remove hair as small as a grain of sand meaning you can get the smoothest epilation experience possible in the comfort of your own home.


The 40 tweezers technology might sound a bit brutal but fear not because it’s cordless you can use it with warm water which makes your skin less sensitive.  I think the biggest concern for women with these types of products is pain, reassuringly Dr. med. Petra Staubach, University Skin Clinic, Mainz recommended this product as a gentle method to remove hair! 

I am all for gentle and the fact the epilator massages the skin really makes all the difference, Braun are all about you having comfortable skin.  Using special cooling wet wipes which are included prior to using the epilator prepare the skin, so really any concerns you have are soon dissipated and its product you will soon love its wonderful getting rid of even the finest of hairs, 4 x shorter than waxing.

It is such a technologically advanced epilator, coming complete with ample useful features like a smartlight so you can identify the areas you want to work on even with the most smallest of hairs, it has a flexible head so it can move easily around the contours of your body and has SoftLip tips to tackle flat-lying hairs.  The one hour charge is very convenient and the product is simple to get to grips with.

It might seem an expensive piece of kit but you can even change the attachment head and give your pores some deep cleansing which can really help skin complexion.  If you factor in all of this the prices suddenly seems more attractive.


The Rokit Gel Polish Professional Kit (usually £99.99 but on offer currently) is the perfect option for someone who likes to take care of their nails.  It can get costly to keep having your nails done so investing in one of these kits can help you get shiny salon nails at home.  Although you might find yourself popular with friends who want you to do their nails too.

The kit is fast and effective, it cuts down a five stage process into a much quicker one (no base or top coat) and you then have lovely nails for 14 days.  Part of the increased speed is the high performance lamp which is included in the set; it has 32 LED lights for super-fast curing time.  It comes complete with one shade and you can buy more individually for £14.99 each.
Cosmopolitan Beauty said this is one of the best gel kits out there, so do make sure you enter the competition at the end of the blog post as I will be giving away one of these fabulous kits.
Fashion

Given its still quite cold a gift of a warm jumper or coat would be very welcome this Mothers day, I really feel the cold so like to be wrapped up well especially with all the dog walking I do in all weathers.

The dog had chewed off the toggles on my current coat so it was looking a little tatty, I was beyond thrilled to review a winter coat from House of Fraser it was only £35 in the sale so an affordable purchase.  The parka has washed well I managed to get quite muddy on one of my country walks and its looking as good as new still.


You can search the Winter Shop to find the ideal gift for staying warm and they have managed to source a whole host of stylish clothes for winter, with fashionable gloves, scarves and hats to accompany your winter coat.  I am drawn to the Yumi products they seem more fun but if you prefer you can pick out something more serious, it all depends on the personality of your mum and what she would like.

Board Games

Lots of mums have been watching Downton Abbey, I am a huge fan myself.  I love period drama, it captivates me seeing life how it was.  It seemed a slower pace of life back then without all these facebook statuses, tweeting and instagramming everything!  I am always sad when a series ends and I have ages till the next one, so its fabulous you can play the board game in between.  Destination Board Games have the Downton Parlour & Card Games (£19.99) and Destination Downton Abbey (£24.95) with both available to buy from their website.  It is a great idea returning to more traditional games like these which provide hours of entertainment. I will definately be taking these to my next girly night in with my friends.

Tatty Teddy

These gorgeous teddies make a lovely gift for Mothers Day, young children particularly like soft toys so they will enjoy being able to pick one out for you to cuddle.  I was sent the 1st Class Mummy one for inclusion in this guide and I must admit I love the sentiment.  With an RRP of £10.00 it makes a reasonable priced but thoughtful gift.  They are available to buy from Clintons and they have teddies for every occasion, each one is very soft and has lovely details.

    I really like the flowers. You cannot have enough flowers in the house. Roll on summer when I can pick some from my garden

  147. what beautiful gifts, i would love to give these to my very special mum. my mum is my rock because she is always there for everyone despite having her own problems. She always puts others first before herself and is my best friend. She really deserves to be spoilt.

  148. I think the flowers are beautiful & look to be a good sized bouquet, so often when florists deliver flowers the bunch looks really puny compared to the photos also my Mum loves Belgian chocolates & often buy the aforementioned brand for me on my birthdays & Christmas. I think the candles are lovely especially the sculptural looking one from Alusi Candles & personally I've always wanted one of the gel manicure kits! :)
