It’s a national day that happens every March here in the UK, and it’s quickly creeping up on us – Mother’s Day! If you are a last minute buyer on the hunt for a gift for the special lady in your life, then hopefully something from the guide I’ve put together below will be of interest and fingers crossed, well received.
Myself, I sometimes struggle and often put together a little hamper of items that my mum likes. There are some great gifts in here that would be a great hamper addition if you are also the sort of person who is indecisive and likes to create your own.
English Tea Shop
Premium Tea Collection, 24 bags – RRP £10, available from Amazon
The Premium Tea Collection from the English Tea Shop is the perfect gift for the cup of tea lover. Each of the eight carefully selected blends has been designed to tantalise those tastebuds; with three of each flavour, the individually wrapped pyramid tea bags range from true classics to the more exotic. Just some of the flavours include white tea blueberry & elderflower, earl grey, and darjeeling black tea.
Arnicare Bath & Massage Balm, 200ml – RRP £8.55, available from Boots and Amazon
For those mothers who are on their feet a lot, how about a bottle of the Arnicare bath & massage balm from Nelson’s, to help them relax and unwind after a long day? This dual purpose balm is enriched with evening primrose oil and sweet almond oil to hydrate the skin; and arnica montana extract and lavender and grapefruit essential oils to help calm the senses. It can be used as either a bath soak or massaged directly onto tired muscles.
The Orange Square Company
Olverum Bath Oil, 125ml & 250ml – RRP £29 & £53, available from Olverum.com, Liberty, Conran, Harvey Nichols and Fenwick
Here’s another one for those mothers who love to relax & unwind in a comforting bath; a bottle of Olverum bath oil from The Orange Square Company. Olverum bath oil is packed full of 10 essential oils including lavender, lemon peel, exotic verbena, Siberian fir needle, and rosemary; so as expected, it smells wonderful. Because it’s highly concentrated, just one 5ml half capful is needed per luxurious bath; meaning the lucky recipient can get 25 baths from a 125ml bottle, and 50 baths from a 250ml bottle.
Mummy Bee lavender & geranium large candle (65 hr burn time), 200g – RRP £18, available from beefayre.com
As a candle lover I would be delighted to receive one of these gorgeous candles from Beefayre. All of Beefayre’s candles are hand poured, made from purely natural ingredients. The essential oils of lavender and geranium in this particular one smell absolutely delightful. Beefayre do a whole range of candles, as well as other ethically made products such as reed diffusers, hand cream and lip balm; so you are sure to find something wonderful to treat your mum.
Earrings are versatile accessories that can be used to complete an outfit. In particular, I love the beautiful range of options that are available at BrilliantEarth.com. Here’s one of my favourite designs that I came across and the great thing is, the earrings are affordable and there are plenty of unique designs to choose from.
Mother’s Day flowers – RRP from £19.99, available from prestigeflowers.com
A bunch of flowers seems to be one of the go-to gifts for Mother’s Day, and one of these bunches from Prestige Flowers will do just the job. With a wide variety to choose from, every bunch arrives beautifully wrapped and smelling glorious; plus the added bonus of a free box of luxury chocolates with every Mothers Day bunch!
