Mothers Day Gift Guide and Competition

With Mothers day soon upon us (6th of March) I thought I would put together a guide of suitable presents to inspire and delight the recipient, including a rather fabulous competition to win to have a chance of winning them all.

Beauty

KISS have a comprehensive range of quality products letting you achieve salon results in the comfort of your own home.  The talented musician Leona Lewis is their latest brand ambassador; it’s a great collaboration with Leona also being a widely recognised beauty icon. The right beauty products can make you feel much more confident, its nice having a chance to spend some time beautifying ourselves when most of the time we are running around after children!  KISS products look very natural and are quick and easy to apply.  They have some very pretty ready to wear gel nail designs with sparkling glitter, ideal for glamorous occasions when you want to be noticed or something more subtle when you just want to make your nails look very healthy and in tip top condition. 

The KISS lashes have tapered ends so look lighter and softer than most other lashes brands.  You can choose from multi-angle or true volume if you want fuller lashes.  The KISS products are much more affordable than the cost of a trip to the salon, KISS Salon Acrylic French & Nude French are available from Boots £7.95, imPRESS Nails available from ASDA £7.98 and KISS Lashes available from Boots, Superdrug and ASDA starting at £4.99.  The pictured bundle below worth around £100 will form part of the generous giveaway!

Pampering

It is important to unwind when you have a family to take care of, finding time to have a hot bath and relax your body is very therapeutic.  If you are feeling frazzled adding Olverum to your bath is very soothing and helps nourish your dry skin.  All the benefits of a spa without the expense, I have the 125ml bottle (worth £26) to giveaway as part of my competition bundle.


The scent is very aromatic and luxurious so this will be a real treat for the winner.  It is gentle on the skin, a natural product that will ease your tensions both of the body and the mind.  It is a product that will help you sleep more soundly and ease your sinuses if you have a cold.  The main stockist is the House of Fraser.

Personalised Gifts

Gifts such as these can be lovely and very thoughtful and Born Gifted have lots to pick from.  They have offered me a personalised wine glass (£9.99) to giveaway which is ideal for Mothers day, I must admit the occasional glass of wine is just the thing after a challenging day parenting two lively lads but this glass reminds you how much you mean to them too!



Technology

The olloclip 4 in 1 photo lens (£69.99) is an award-winning piece of kit helping you take pictures that really count.  It is a premium mobile lens that will allow mums everywhere to take the best pictures of their children, photos to cherish and return to again and again.  The olloclip makes the most perfect gift for Mothers day, allowing you to transform your phone into a worthy camera for documenting memories.  It enables you to have four very versatile lens options, fisheye (expanding your persepective to almost 180 degrees of vision), wide-angle, 10x Macro and 15x Macro (for increased magnification) with ease, switching the lens only takes seconds offering you so much more than the iPhone’s built-in camera.  The lightweight design is perfect for travel, meaning you never miss an opportunity to take your finest picture.


Griffin Technology sent me an iPhone 6 case (£34.99) to giveaway; the protective easy to grip case can survive a 10-foot drop on to concrete.  How often do we give our children our phones to play games on to amuse them for a short while, this way you can ensure your phone survives the experience!  The Survivor Summit case has a multi-layered shell to deflect impacts, scuffs and scratches, keeping your phone looking as good as the day you bought it.  It can even protect the phone against heavy rain, ideal if you live in Wales like I do.


This case has been designed to exceed military standards – so it should be fine in the hands of children!  So head to Carphone Warehouse to get your own or enter my competition below.

The HyperX Cloud II Headset (£66.38) gives you an optimal gaming experience so much more immersive when you can have clarity of sound.  The 100% foam makes them comfortable to wear; the pink and white edition would make a lovely gift for those mums who still enjoy to game (I confess I was a World of Warrior priest in my time!).  The heaphones give you more choice with independent audio and microphone volume control.  They can also be enjoyed for listening to music or watching movies with their virtual 7.1 surround sound they really do enhance the audio quality.  I know my husband would have been eager to get his hands on the black/red design helping him pinpoint his enemies in the shooting games he favours.


If you would like to win the prizes mentioned worth almost £300 please fill out the form below by the 5th of February, so I can announce the winner on Mother’s day.
