With Mother’s Day approaching, it can be difficult to decide what to buy. For me, I have to decide on presents for my mum, my step mum, my mother in law and my grandma. It can get difficult trying to pick what to buy everyone.
I have put together some ideas this year and have included personalised ones too 🙂
Beauty tools come in so handy and I am always in need of small scissors, whether it is to cut my nails or trim false lashes down, they are really useful to have. I have a pair of Rubis tweezers and they are my favourite pair as they are sharp and precise as well as being easy to use so I would definitely recommend this brand. The scissors are really great quality and a must have beauty tool.
I hate carrying around a perfume bottle as they are so bulky and often the small samples you get end up leaking all over your bag and only last one or two uses so a solid perfume is ideal. It comes in a beautiful compact tin so is ideal to carry around with you and great for travelling. It is so easy to use, you simply use your finger like you would with a tin of lip balm and then apply anywhere on your skin. It has shea butter in too so is easy to apply and kind to your skin. Bella is a refreshing floral scent and really beautiful, you can get it in a range of other scents too.
I love the Ren Moroccan oil range and always have done. Their body lotion is so lovely but I recently discovered their body oil and fell in love. I smells amazing, as does everything else in the range! You only need a small amount and it makes your skin so soft. It would make the ideal gift for someone that loves a good pamper or deserves one!
Sheet masks are a massive trend right now and Maskologist have created these lovely lavender youth promoting masks. You can buy then singularly or as a pack of 4 and they also do a really nice sounding rose one to help your skin glow. The lavender youth miracle mask helps to reset the skin, making it plumper and more radiant. It leaves your skin feeling amazing and looking so fresh. It is pretty much a professional facial in a box! These masks are completely biodegradable as they are created without the plastic mesh base structure of other hydrogel masks so once used they are fully dissolvable in water so can be used as a body treatment in the bath, bonus 🙂
This is honestly the best hairbrush I have ever tried! It is so easy to hold and it is flexible so it can bend to suit your scalp. It is a lot less harsh than other brushes out there so helps to prevent breakage and as a plus, it can also be used on wet hair. A lot of times you see specific brushes for wet hair as this is when your hair is most vulnerable but this one is safe to use all of the time. It comes in a few different colours and I think the white and rose gold one looks so pretty!
This beautiful set is vegan, cruelty free and free from harsh chemicals,. It would be ideal for anyone that loves a good pamper and loves a nice bath. Made with essential oils, each carries natural benefits, and ensures a relaxing bath. They are beautifully made too and look too nice to use!
They come in 4 different scents – sweet orange (happiness), geranium (balance), eucalyptus (clarity) and lavender (relax).
The healing hut have an amazing range of vegan and cruelty free skincare products. The pregnancy oil is a calming lavender blend created to help soften your skin. It is ideal to use whilst pregnant or once given birth to help with any stretch marks. An ideal pampering gift for an expectant mother or a new mother 🙂
This organic eye cream is ideal for normal, mature and tired looking skin. It contains natural oils and extracts to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles. As with the rest of this range, it is vegan and cruelty free. I find that I much prefer putting natural products near my eyes as they are very sensitive so something like this is great for anyone with sensitive skin too.
Night cream is important to use as this is when your skin rejuvenates itself and when the products have time to work. Jasmine and Chamomile are especially good for dry and sensitive skin, they work together to regenerate cells and combat inflammation. The scent is beautiful and having this applied to your face by your nose can also help you to relax and sleep better. I think this would be great for new mothers that maybe aren’t spending much time or money on themselves as a little pick me up and treat.
I really do recommend the healing hut products, especially if you are buying from someone that lives a vegan/cruelty free/organic lifestyle. Their products are really well priced and made with a lot of care and love. They are the ideal pamper products to treat someone to. Doing a face mask can be really relaxing as well as good for your skin.
Clay face masks are great for all skin types and the perfect booster for your skin when it’s not looking its best. Clay is particularly good for fighting inflamed or oily skin. Apple, Avocado and Aloe all contain antioxidants and vitamins A,C and E to protect the skin against environmental damage, and ageing.
I wanted to get a nice photo of my myself with my mum for her to display as she has just moved house and is in the middle or decorating and adding pictures and ornaments etc. I have used Asda before for personalised products and have always been impressed with the price and quality. The picture is printed on a piece of slate with s a stand and you can have it made in various sizes. I thought this would look really nice on display.
The personalised mugs from Asda are a really great quality too. Their online tool to customise the layout/size of the photos is so simply to use, I designed and ordered both products straight from my phone. I wanted to get a nice mug for my step mum so opted for a picture from her wedding day to my dad. The picture came out really well and the mug looks really good!
I have mentioned live in the light before, they are one of my favourite go to websites for natural skincare and they have released this beautiful candle gift set which would make the ideal present for any candle lover. All of the candles are natural and in the set you get:
Frosted Glass Tumbler – 7.75oz
Medium Tin – 3oz
Large Tin – 6.7oz
Set of 4 Tealights
Large Pillar – 14oz
Scents may vary box to box but the ones I got all smell amazing! You get so much for your money and it’s all packaged really well in a box and is just such a lovely present.
This beautiful plant house would be the ideal present for someone wanting to add a bit of greenery to a kitchen or bathroom. I think this would look great on s shelf or window ledge with an aloe vera or cactus in. It has a concrete foundation block and then a copper coloured frame making it look like a little house, really cute!
Jasmine is a proven anti-depressant, the essential oils sweet aroma works to combat moods and boost energy. It can also provide the right scent for the perfect night’s sleep. It is the ideal scent to have in the bedroom. This candle is the perfect size if you wanted to take it with you if you were travelling and struggling to sleep whilst away from home. Candles make a great gift and this one is vegan and cruelty free.
I don’t usually get cards for people but this is another level! It is a 3D pop up card that is a pair of wellies with flowers coming out of the top and a bird on. I have never seen a card quite like it. I think it’s a great idea and they have so many designs, you can even get one that is a teddy bear! I think it’s really cool!
Food & Drink
Price varies depending on stockist.
You can purchase boxes direct or if you want to buy singularly you can usually get these in the free from section of supermarkets or independent vegan/health stores.
These are ideal if you are buying for someone with a gluten or dairy allergy or someone that is vegan as all of their products are organic, gluten free and vegan. The cookie dough is even one of your five a day?!
I don’t eat a vegan diet but the chocolate bars are some of the nicest ones I have ever tasted. When I was eating a vegan diet I was obsessed with the hazelnut praline one. They are so tasty and they taste like really posh, high quality chocolate.
These both would make a great gift, whether you want to buy a selection of different ones or treat someone to a big box 🙂
This rocky road bar is vegan and gluten free so again this is another ideal treat for anyone that is eating a vegan diet or has a gluten or dairy allergy. I love the design on the packaging and it tastes so good! I am a big rocky road fan and this is the perfect size as a treat and they have so many different flavour bars to pick from 🙂 They even do their own version of a creme egg!
This set contains a great mixture of oils and vinegars in a presentation box. I think this would be great for anyone that is into cooking or looking to better themselves in the kitchen(like myself!). It is a great way to try different flavours I wouldn’t usually have picked up. The set contains 8 x 40ml bottles:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil “LASITHI” – Organic
Raspberry Balsam Vinegar
Mango Balsam Vinegar
Tomato & Basil Balsam Vinegar
Calamansi Balsam Vinegar
I love how they come in a box too and il gusto have so many other bottles to try, you can get some really good gin selection boxes too.
Cricketers gin is a small batch, artisan crafted, London Dry Gin. It features the local Berkshire botanicals: wild marjoram, milk thistle and blackberries, these unique flavours harmonise with zesty orange, spicy coriander, and subtle tones of liquorice to deliver an exquisitely smooth juniper-forward gin. It is great mixed with just a plain tonic so you can really appreciate the flavour or you can of course create your own mix by adding it to something flavoured.
This is a must have for any gin lover and not just for people that like cricket!
This beautifully made scarf is reversible. One side of this soft scarf features a check weave in a mixture of vibrant colours accented with navy blue or grey hearts. The other side shows the pattern in reverse with multi coloured hearts against a navy blue or grey background. It has soft frayed edges. The scarf is really soft and would make a really great present, especially this time of year and the colours are great for winter/spring.
Cover-Up have an amazing selection of phone cases made out of wood, stone, felt or shell. The shall range is stunning and they have so many different type of shell to pick from. I think a really stunning, unique phone case like this would be a really good gift. The case is very hard wearing and they come in so many different options as well as lots of different phone models.
This beautiful necklace is a set of angel wings with a heart hanging in the middle. It is such a lovely piece and very elegant. The healing hut has a good range of jewellery, not all of them are on the online shop at the moment but you can always contact them to find out what they have in stock or visit them if you are local to Hook.
I think this bracelet is really sweet and thoughtful. The idea behind it is that you give it to someone as a gift and make a wish, over time as the thread frays it means your wish is coming and eventually when it comes off your wish is meant to come true. It is adjustable and will fit most wrists 🙂
I hope I have given you some good ideas!
