Top ideas for Mother’s Day gifts
I love Mother’s Day. It’s that one day a year where you get to spoil your mum rotten and get her a gift that truly shows how much you appreciate her. I don’t like to go too over the top though; I just like to buy simple gifts that say something about her. In case you’re struggling to find the right thing with only a few weeks to go, I thought I’d put my top, easy-to-find gift ideas in today’s post.
1. Classic jewelry
This is my number one gift because it always goes down a storm and you can get something that’s completely unique to your mum. It could be a necklace with a heart or a pair of earrings with her birthstone. This year, I’m looking at buying my mother a ChloBo charm bracelet, and in particular, the one which is made of pearls with a heart charm on it – simple, elegant and just her style!
2. Candles and toiletries
This is another staple gift of mine because, I don’t know about you but, my mum loves scented gifts. If she’s a candle-lover, go for fresh or floral scented Yankee Candles, perfect for spring and going into summer. Or if she likes the scent but without the flame involved, reed diffusers are a good alternative. Then there’s always toiletries like hand creams and body washes, and Molton Brown is ideal for an affordable but luxury item.
If your mother prefers to wear the scent on herself rather than in her home, look at high-quality perfumes as a gift instead. If you have a slightly bigger bank balance, I’d recommend Jo Malone scents for a more luxury feel. However, if she has a favourite brand of make-up, see if there are any new scents being released, or any on sale in a gift set with a body lotion to match.
4. Make-up sets
Speaking of make-up brands, picking your mum up a new eye palette or lipstick set in soft nude tones are guaranteed to feel like a real treat. Too-faced have just re-released their peach eyeshadow palette, full of warm pinks, soft hues and peach colours that make for a perfect summer look. Or, if your mother prefers to stay neutral, the Urban Decay Naked palettes should be right up her street, and not too expensive.
5. Gardening sets
If your mum prefers a trowel to a foundation brush, you can still get her a beautiful gift. For example, you could put together a wicker hamper full of green-fingered goodies. A new set of essential tools, some hard-wearing gloves, a set of seeds for the garden and some new plant pots will go down a storm, especially given that we’re getting into spring and it’s the ideal time to re-plant.
