When it comes to Mothers Day/Fathers Day, I always find it so difficult to pick out things for both my parents. It’s not like any birthday, it’s more sentimental to show your appreciation to your Mother/Father.
So Mothers day is a day that I like to spoilt my Mum, no you shouldn’t just do it that one day a year. I like to surprise my Mum with flowers throughout the year whenever I see a pretty bunch. You see so many of those comments from people saying ‘Oh you shouldn’t just have to have Mothers Day to appreciate your Mum.’ Oh shut up Julia you’re boring, I’m just sharing the love this Mothers Day – whether you like it or lump it.
So of course, the main gift is a gorgeous bunch of flowers. Whether you get them delive
red especially to the front door for a surprise, or whether you popped to the local petrol garage to pick some up on the way home from work. Your Mum will always appreciate flowers, well unless they’re allergic or something.
Another good gift is always a candle, there’s so many gorgeous scents and brands out there. However, Yankee is just a popular one and with a Yankee candle you cannot go wrong. This scent – Garden Sweet Pea is all about bringing the outdoors within your own home. It has a gorgeous Spring scent to it, which is perfect for the upcoming months. It smells fresh, floral with a touch of sweetness.
Another easy choice is a Pandora purchase. I think every Mum most own a Pandora, I mean I even do and I don’t wear the thing. However, whenever someone gifts me with a new charm – I’ll wear it. You can either make them an expensive piece of jewellery, or just as an everyday accessory. There are so many different collections of charms, or even other pieces of jewellery – i.e rings, earrings and necklaces.
A women everyday must have is a gorgeous fragrance, and this is the Lancôme La Suit Trésor. This is on the little expensive side of gifts, but the fragrance is so worth it. It has notes of fresh raspberries, frankincense and vanilla with a black rose essence. It’s a long lasting, radiant, sophisticated but not over powering. It’s a must have fragrance for anyones collection.
For the more affordable gifts, there is Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lipsticks. This is in the shade Walk Of Fame which is a gorgeous, luxury, red. The formula is comfortable on the lips, and it’s long lasting which is what every women is looking for within a lipstick. It’s an elegant shade, which adds a statement look.
Next up is a total treat for any Mother, CND Vinylux Top Coat and Polishes. I have chosen two easy shades which will go with everything. Cashmere Wrap, is a very subtle pink close to a nude and Mystic Slate is a gorgeous slate grey with a hint of blue. Then of course, a Top Coat because that’s important. You need the top coat to keep the polish locked in, and so it won’t chip. This an easy pamper present for your Mum to treat herself to within her own home.
Lastly, we have This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. I mean, I’ve been using this for the last month and it’s a total win, win. With the mixture of lavender and camomile it deliveries your mind to give you the best night sleep. Just spray a couple of times over your pillow, allow the product to set and let your body and mind drift off. I wake up every morning feeling fresh and like I’ve had the best night sleep. Like quite literally *slept like a baby*. The scent is a relaxing scent, and really does the trick for any sleepless nights.
What have you got your Mum this Mothers Day?
