Today's post should hopefully serve as a last-minute reminder to any of you who aren't aware or have completely forgot that this Sunday is Mother's Day here in the UK. I've got a couple of last minute gift ideas to share with you which should hopefully work for many different Mums and there's still more than enough time to have your gifts delivered before Mothering Sunday arrives.
First up are flowers. I don't think that you can really go wrong with a beautiful bouquet of flowers when it comes to Mother's Day. Bonus points if you know what your Mum's favourite flowers are.
Instead of picking up a bunch at the local supermarket/petrol station, why not treat your Mum to an arrangement of blooms that look as though you've spent hours selecting each and every individual stem? This bouquet from Appleyard London is so pretty and packed full of stunning stems, flowers and even a few sprigs of berries. It's the Secret Meadow bouquet* for reference but they have a whole host of lovely flowers and bouquets to choose from for a real range of budgets. The best thing; you can order right up until Saturday night for Mother's Day delivery and you can also save 33% on your Mother's Day flowers by using the discount code BLOG33.
I've mentioned it before and I'll mention it again but in our household/family, giving the gift of a candle or even just something candle related, is the way in which we show our love for one another. Regardless of the occasion or celebration, you can pretty much guarantee that someone will receive a candle.
Partylite's Spring collection* really is ideal for Mother's Day. One of my Mum's favourite Partylite scents is Berry Blossom so the fact that it comes in a gorgeous two-wick GloLite large jar is absolutely ideal. We've certainly been impressed by Partylite's Large GloLite jars in the past with most lasting around 50-60 hours.
Then there's the beautiful porcelain butterfly tealight holders. It's always nice to have a little tealight or two burning and these house the wild lemongrass tealights (as pictured) perfectly. And last but not least we have the decorative fragrance sticks and a lovely little white ceramic flower holder to keep them in. Partylite's fragrance sticks are a recent discovery for us but they're definitely something that we'll be trying again. Unlike traditional incense sticks or similar products, you don't even light these sticks but they're so full of fragrance. These would work particularly well if you're buying for someone who likes the scent of candles but not the worry of having to remember to blow them out.
When it comes to beauty, the one area that my Mum spends the most time and attention on is her hair so this stunning set from Paul Mitchell* at Look Fantastic would certainly be right up her street. The gift box is as equally brilliant as the products that are enclosed and the fact that it's rectangular, definitely makes it an easy present to wrap this Mother's Day. You can also order right up until 9pm on Saturday night for next day delivery from Look Fantastic and they have so many great Mother's Day gift ideas to choose from.
Stationery is always a good shout when it comes to Mother's Day gifting and it couldn't be more perfect for my Mum this year. As she's taking partial retirement in a couple of weeks time, I thought that I would commemorate the day by creating a personalised notebook* from Chroma Stationery. This way she can note down all of her plans for her days off, of which there are already quite a few and it's something that she can keep for years to come and get a lot of use of.
And last but certainly not least, a great card. Depending on your Mum's taste and sense of humour, there's a card for her thanks to Jolly Awesome*. These are just some of the fantastic selection available and you can even pick up your Jolly Awesome card at Scribbler this weekend.
What are you planning on getting your Mum this year? Or have you already done your shopping? And what do you think of my Mother's Day picks? Plus, how funny are the Jolly Awesome cards?
