Gift ideas inspired by the woman herself!
Feeling at a bit of a loss about what to buy your mum this Mother’s Day? Don’t panic. I got together with MK1 Shopping Park and have found some gift ideas that are slightly different from the norm that are inspired by my very own mum. Hopefully yours will love them too!
FRAGRANCED DIFFUSERS SET OF 3 – £10 – NEXT
I know my mum adores diffusers. Unlike candles they can be left unattended (yeah, she’s a safety-head) and don’t need to be lit to fill a room with fragrance. Cue bags of freshness, something cute for the mantlepiece and maximum daughter points for me.
I was drawn to this set as it gives three different scents for the modest price of £10. Each diffuser will last approx 4 weeks and the scents White Jasmine, Apricot Blossom and Pure Linen are all perfect for Spring and are SUPER pretty with tiny flowers inside the bottles.
PIXI VITAMIN WAKEUP MIST – £16 / 80ml – M&S
Many women love to discover new beauty products and the first person they want to tell about them? Their mum and friends of course!
I first discovered the Pixi beauty brand in my beauty advent calendar this Christmas just past. What a find! Beautifully scented beauty products that do wonders for the skin and best of all, they’re gentle. I was super excited to find out this brand is stocked at my local Marks & Spencer at MK1 Shopping Park giving me easy access to get try the entire range.
This product is my latest love. A facial spray toner that can be used before you apply moisturiser or after makeup for a boost of hydration. And by gawd does it give a lovely velvety dose of moisture without being greasy or heavy! That all coupled with the beautiful fragrance from the orange blossom water, it’s a bit like a delicate perfume for your face. I think this is perfect for my mum who loves the sunshine but knows that skin has to be treated with extra care after exposure. Hello peachy skin!
GREY BEE MOTIF SOCKS – £10 – NEXT
CUTE. BEE. SOCKS. My mum is infamous for always buying socks as gifts. So, I always figure it means she would love me to return the favour! Why bees? Why not! They’re a hot fashion motif at the moment and these are proper socks with their sensible fit and active freshness tech. Mum will approve.
ROUND CACTUS TIN CANDLE – £1.50 – PRIMARK
Gifts don’t have to reflect their cost (see following gift too). This little cactus candle might only cost £1.50 but I challenge you to not smile at it’s cuteness! There’s a whole variety of small cactus candles or faux mini succulents in Primark at the moment, all at ridiculously good prices. A surefire way to brighten up mum’s dressing table without stealing all her precious room and I know she won’t light it as it’s tooooo pretty (that’s what she’ll say but safety-head).
RELAXING SPA MUD MASK – 90P – PRIMARK
A single serving, pamper treatment that only costs 90p! There’s a variety of face masks at Primark but I choose this Lavender & Jasmine one because my mum loves lavender. Filled with natural clay and essential oils this is the cost effective way of saying, “Hey mum, Iove you, take five”. This would be a sweet item if you was creating your own Mother’s Day hamper too!
