Inside: Gift inspiration for the women in your life this Mother’s Day – gifted items included.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and you may be wondering what on earth you can buy that will show the woman in your life that you love and appreciate everything she does.
Of course, showing your appreciation should not be limited to one day of the year, but it gives you the opportunity to make a fuss and make her feel extra special on that day.
I have put together a few different ideas of things that I would always be happy to receive. Hopefully, there will be something you think she will like and don’t forget, she will want the day off from normal duties and breakfast in bed!
Gift ideas for Mother’s Day
You can’t go wrong with flowers for Mother’s Day. I don’t think there is a woman in the land who would feel disappointed if you were to present her with a beautiful bouquet and I have a 15% discount code for you from Blossoming Gifts to use. Simply add KATYF15 at the checkout to get your discount.
Hands are often neglected but can make such a difference to how someone feels when looked after properly. Why not treat her to some goodies from Leighton Denny which are all cruelty-free. And if you have the skills, why not offer to give her a manicure too!
I treated myself to a manicure and used the varnish to create a cute leopard print – love it!
“Invest in your hair, it is the crown you never take off.”
Having your hair done is always a luxury so why not treat her to some gorgeous hair products from Cake to bring that luxury to every hair wash. Vegan, cruelty-free, naturally luxe, and scented like cake you really can’t go wrong!!
If she is anything like me then she will have short and sparse lashes. It’s a curse of being a woman I am sure of it. Code Beautiful have developed Forget Fake Lashes – a pre-mascara lash plumper that instantly gives you thicker and fuller lashes as well as being enriched with vitamins and waxes to encourage lash growth. Their products are cruelty free, paraben-free and vegan too so go take a look on their website for more.
Hands up who always has their cup of coffee cold or lukewarm? It goes with the territory of being a parent so why not treat her to the gift of a drink that will always be the perfect temperature? The Ember Travel Mug² is pure genius, it really is. Using an app, you control the temperature of the drink to the exact degree so that it will always be just the right temperature – no matter how many nappies you have to change or snacks you need to go fetch.
The mug can be personalised to you and you can personalise your favourite temperatures for all of your favourite drinks. I am fussy about my hot chocolate so will be working out the exact temperature and saving it within the app.
As I get older I tend to lean towards useful gifts and so I am always wondering what someone might actually need when I am shopping for them. If she is into fitness then these sports leggings from Love Leggings are amazing. I want another pair as these are the best I’ve found because they do not fall down and are so comfortable. They are also made from breathable material and wick away moisture so you don’t get hot and sweaty.
I am a big fan of personalised gifts as they show that you have put just that little bit more effort and thought into the buying process. Funky Pigeon have got some fantastic gifts available and you can personalise them so that they are perfect. My personal favourites are the notepads and the tote bags as you can never make enough lists or have enough bags to carry around all of the stuff that comes with having kids!
Are you doing anything special for the day? Cake is always a great way to help celebrate any occasion, isn’t it? If you are vegan or have dairy or egg allergies then this cake from OGGS will make for the perfect cake. Egg-free recipes are particularly difficult to get right but I can tell you this is delicious!
“This isn’t a Celebration Cake for vegans, this is a cake without compromise for everyone. Whether you are a meat eater, plant-based, have egg or dairy allergies or simply just love great cake…we wanted to create a product that can bring everyone together and be shared by all” – Hannah Carter, Founder.
Hopefully, that has given you some ideas as well as introducing you to some fantastic brands!
