Us mums really do not get pampered enough, and its sad how much work we do and how little we are appreciated for doing it, I understand that we have Mothers Day but that shouldn’t mean we cannot treat these amazing ladies with extra little gifts throughout the year as a way to say, take time out, relax and we love you.
I decided to get together a collection of affordable gift ideas and treats that you could grab up for your wonderful mum, friend or even simply just for yourself as we all know how important it is to take time out and self care once in a while.
Seksy Embrace £35 – This was such an impulse, I am of course super duper picky when it comes to perfumes but this was stunning, the description of it is that its elegant and it honestly is Embrace is a perfect evening perfume to wear out or to family parties but I have worn it daily and have had many compliments from others, The bottle is beautiful with a little Swarovski crystal that sits on the rim of the bottle.
Olverum Bath Oil £29 – Once in a while you get the chance to have a nice hot bath, and why not add this amazingly scented bath oil into it, all you need is one teaspoon into a hot bath and sit back and relax, when this came through my door I could smell it before I had even opened it and that is when I knew it was wonderful, I have only used it the once because I dont want to ‘over use’ but its amazing and has left my sore and tired skin smooth and happy, everyone should have this wonderful thing in their bathroom cupboard.
Hot Rocks Massage Stones (gift set) £14.99 (sale price £9.19) – This set speaks to my inner hippy, it reminds of a time sitting with my step mum with her incense sticks burning and Madonna’s Ray of Light album in the background, sore backs will want this more often than you expect, it comes with a little book to show you how to warm them up, a candle, the stones themselves and some incense sticks, need a pamper evening with your friends? then this one needs to be grabbed, and its on sale too so that’s an added bonus!
Stemless Wine Glasses £14.99 – These are stunning, they are so pretty, my husband has been using them a lot more than I have while drinking cider, he noticed that because of them being made of metal the condensation freezes on the outside and keeps the liquid in the glass themselves nice and cool for longer, they are just so different from your usual glasses, given that they aren’t actually made from glass, you can get the ones with the stems on them but I got these ones so they can be used for more than just a nice cold bevvy at the end of the day.
What fun things in this little gift guide would you go for?
Until next time
