Mother's Day Gift Guide.
As Mother's Day is approaching (30th of March for those who don't know) I thought I'd put together a little gift guide for inspiration, some of which i may have already purchased for my mother and mother in law.
You can never go wrong with a Cath Kidston gift the vintage style has a very general appeal especially their home wear. This set of 4 mugs available here in various vintage prints is a lovely gift and only £20! Also everybody loves a cuppa tea right?
Boots now do a luxury miniature selection which include the brand Soap and Glory. At only £2.50 each they are a great way of testing the product without paying out the full price and carefully selecting a few make a really nice pamper treat. Available in boots or online here.
Struggling with gift ideas? Try a quirky little website called the dot com gift shop. Here you can get these vintage style cake tins and tea coffee sugar caddies currently on sale for under £10 for both. Maybe even fill them with some handmade goodies to make them extra special.
What mother wouldn't like a photo album full of sentimental photographs? Paperchase is the best place to find a really pretty albums and other matching stationary.
Jewellery can be a great gift, something simple like these small gold plated heart studs from ASOS look really good quality but wont break the bank at only £25.
Scented candles are definitely on trend at the moment and what can i say....i am a complete sucker for them! Yankee Candle do a huge range of beautifully scented candles and some i think would make an excellent Mother's Day gift are Bunny Cake (a limited edition easter scent), any of the limited edition dream garden collection which are perfect for spring or a celebration small tumbler in white chocolate and mint which simply says 'Thank You'.
Or why not turn the box of chocolates cliché on its head and go for a luxury tub of hot chocolate! Whittards do every flavour hot chocolate you could even imagine, and speaking from experience they are like none other i have tasted! This hazelnut white hot chocolate would rival a box of chocolates any day.
Hope this guide was helpful, thanks for reading.
