Mother's Day Gift Guide (Luxury/Bargains/Steals)

Birthdays, Valentines day, Father's Day, Mother's Day..blah blah blah..SO many holidays, so little gift ideas!
I find it so difficult to find presents for people, even people I know and am very close to. Have to admit though, when you handpick a present for someone and they love it, the feeling is definitely priceless!

Getting to the point of this post, we have been looking around and handpicking Mother's Day gifts and came up with a gift guide for you! Now, if you eventually do not end up buying these exact products, at least you will have some ideas.

Now we know that our readers are varied, some are students, some are very young and some are even working professionals. So, for your ease, we have divided this post into three categories: Luxurious, Bargains and Steals. As you can tell, you will definitely find something that will fit your budget. So lets jump right into it!


Pinks Boutique Spa Candles/£35/Available in-spa or online
3 Scents to choose from: Jasmine and Ylang Ylang, Grapefruit and Ginger and Orange and Clove

Hand poured using only eco-friendly soya wax (no toxic paraffin or palm oil) and pure natural essential oils, each candle arrives nestled in fuchsia pink tissue paper and dried rose buds and a re-usable box.
Now you might be wondering why I have featured just a normal candle. Well, it is NOT a normal candle. Once melted, the sumptuous blend of oils and waxes can be used as a luxurious body moisturiser that sinks into the skin and nourishes and hydrates while smelling amazing!

Paco Rabanne Lady Million Perfume gift set/£45.99/Available at The Perfume Shop
Gift Set Contains: Eau De Parfum 50ml and Cuff

Fruity and floral is how I can describe this fragrance, but the smell, the bottle, the packaging, everything oozes luxury and glamour. The perfect present to make your mother feel like the queen that she is.
With notes of raspberry, orange and patchouli and Arabian jasmine in the heart of it all, you know this was probably inspired by an Arabian desert princess.
And what could be better than a gold cuff paired with it to top it all of!


Lush Mamma Mia Gift Box (Orange or Pink)/£19.95/Available in-store or online: pink/orange 

This is definitely the best gift to give your mum a break and let her indulge in some 'me time'. This box contains products that will pamper her hands: the luxurious Sultana of Soap bar, Tiny hands Serum and the amazing Lemony Flutter for the cuticles. To add to that, there is Ro's Argan body conditioner, which is every bit the indulgence it sounds, leaving you with fresh skin "kissed by the first rays of the morning sun". And if that wasn't enough, you have the Washing up fairy (pictured above) that is a more eco-friendly and fun alternative to normal washing up liquid. All this with a price tag of just under £20? I wouldn't even think twice! 

The Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Company- Bespoke Pizzas/£9-£17/Available online
Available in 7",10" and 12" sizes

We are BIG fans of chocolates and desserts! And if your mum is anything like ours, she will LOVE this present! The gourmet chocolate pizza company makes and delivers bespoke order-made pizzas (have you looked at the low price tag?) where is gives you a choice to choose your own base as well as 3 toppings (lots of choices for that!) and even customise the chocolate curls to top it all off. This can be a present on its own or a great alternative to a regular cake on Mother's Day.


Argos Black Onyx Glitter Ball Bracelet/£4.99/Available in-store or online 

A very cheap alternative to designer jewellery but with a substantially low price tag. We love this beautiful Onyx bracelet that will look great for evening looks or paired with an LBD just to add a little sparkle to any outfit. This is for the low-key mum with subtle elegance.

ELF Makeup Clutch Palette/£7.50/Available online
32 Eyeshadows, 6 Lipcolours, 2 Blushes, 1 Bronzer, 1 Brow Powder, 1 Eyebrow Cream, 1 Face Shimmer, 3 Dual ended applicators, 1 Mirror

WOAH! Have you seen that list of things? And the price tags? Do I need to say more? Well, it turns into a little portable clutch. YES!


We hope you liked this handpicked list as we have worked quite hard on this over the past month or so. We know its a long post and lots of info to read through, but do hope you got some great ideas. Let us know in the comments below what you will be buying for Mother's Day!
