Mothers Day Gift Guide

Wednesday, 4 March 2015 ·

It's always important to show your loved ones how much you care about them - life really is too short for anything else. With Mothers Day fast approaching this is the perfect opportunity to go one step further and treat your mum and let her put her feet up for the day, she's done a lot for you after all. 

Whether you decide to 'do' something nice such as cook a lovely meal or even clean the house for her or go down the route of buying her something special I can guarantee it will mean the world to her! 

Here are some of my favourite gift ideas: 

- Hotel Chocolat Milky Drinking Chocolate - the perfect spin on the popular gift of chocolates
- Olivia Burton Forest Green Watch - to remind her how much you love her every time she checks the time
- Rifle Paper Co Notebook - this is almost too pretty to use...almost
- Chanel Chance Eau Tendre - a beautiful fresh fragrance, perfect for the upcoming warmer months
- Floral Next Cushion - cushions are the perfect way to add a splash of colour to a room 
- Mary Berry Absolute Favourites - what mum doesn't love a bit of Mary Berry? 
- Electric Blue Finsbury Organiser - a filofax is a must have for every handbag and this blue number is just stunning
- Floral Anthropologie Apron - Anthropologie really can do no wrong! If this doesn't make you want to cook I don't know what will
- Diptyque Rosafolia Candle - the most luxurious of all candles, the perfect accompaniment for a long hot bath

Have you got any special plans for Mothers Day?

    I'm glad you enjoyed it :) The perfume is one of my favourites and I can't go a day without my Filofax! Hoping to make my own version of the cushion next week!
