My 2018 Mother's Day Gift List


With Mother's Day less than 2 weeks away, on Sunday 11th March, it's fallen early this year so we all need to be prepared. I thought I'd show off what is available at the moment for those mums out there - the perfect gifts for Mother's Day. Some items are perfect if you're on a budget or for if you want to splurge, but most of all, they're all with mum in mind. 

So here is my gift list for 2018...


Personalised Framed Poem | More Than Words | £28.00
Made especially by Kat, More Than Words offer a fully personalised and bespoke poem for that special person in your life. Perfect for Mother's Day, you simply need to provide them with some background info on the person you want the poem for and she will write it into a poem for especially for that person, and will frame it in a choice of colours. 

Kat asked me to get some information from the kids, asking for them to think of words to describe me. Using these, as well as finding out about some of my hobbies, and about me, she came up with a poem just for me. The finished poem is stunning and is such a one-off gift that makes it such a special item for Mother's Day. 


Verbena Spa Diffuser | Only & Eve | £29.00
Give mum a gorgeous scent this Mother's Day with the Verbena Spa diffuser from Only & Eve. I recently wrote a post entitled Escape To Enchantment With Only & Eve in which I detailed how amazing their range of candle and diffusers are and so I just had to include one in my Mother's Day post. 

The Verbena Spa scent has subtle touches of rose, jasmine and melon to mix in with the verbena and lemongrass. Mum can relax at home with these scents of tranquillity, leaving the whole house smelling fresh for up to 12 weeks.  


Mother's Day Pampering Bundle | Grace Cole | £28.00
Feathering the stunning Body Butter, Bath Soak and gorgeous candle, the Mother's Day Pampering Bundle is a great gift and comes in 2 scents, Vanilla Blush & Peony and Nectarine Blossom & Grapefruit. 

Mum can relax in the bath, lighting the beautiful fragrant candle, the unique wax blend burns for up to 35 hours and diffuses a rich, always-fresh and continuous scent to gently radiate throughout your home as you bathe in the glowing candlelight. The glossy elixir of the Relaxing Bath Soak has a subtle fragrance and pillow-soft bubbles so mum can immerse herself into the relaxing bath. And the Luxurious Body Butter is so deep in moisture with a thick, smooth texture so mum can leave the bathroom in full relaxation mode, with the gorgeous scent following. 


Eva PU Leather Crossbody Bag | SwankySwans | £24.99
I always think a good quality bag is always a great present, especially when you can choose various colours to match your mums personality. I chose this Eva PU Leather Crossbody bag from SwankySwans in the stunning navy blue colour. It is a stylish solution to everyday needs, with plenty of pockets secured with zips and buttons - a gorgeous practical messenger style bag. 

Based in the UK, SwankySwans is the ultimate shopping destination for unique and trendy accessories made for creative fashionistas across the globe. SwankySwans sell hundreds of distinctive styles of satchels, handbags, backpacks, clutch bags, wallets and scarves. Their inspiration comes from all things cute and quirky to create the bold, fascinating and flamboyant designs SwankySwans are renowned for. 


Atlantis Map & Butterfly Purse | SwankySwans | £4.99
As well as the gorgeous bag above, I also picked out this Atlantis Map & Butterfly Purse from SwankySwans too. This beige purse has a mixture of colours within the design so can match against any bag, even the navy blue one. It has space for your notes, cards and even an inner zip for coins. 


GLOSSYBOX | £10 a month
For the same price as a bouquet of flowers you can subscribe your mum to a 3 month GLOSSYBOX plan and she will receive 5 premium beauty products delivered straight to her door every month! GLOSSYBOX understands motherhood and believes every mum deserves that little bit of pampering on this special day. 

With a worth value of £78.41 March’s box features a Mudmask night mask to help those pores breathe, a Figs and Rouge pore perfect cream to rejuvenate skin and an exclusive new Lipstick from Oryza. The box will also include two other items from either the Secret Flush from Universal Beauty, a Leighton Denny Miracle Mist, and Illuminating Stick from Laura Geller, Erase from LUE by Jean Seo, La Theorie Des Volcans Noir Eternae Youth Potion, or a Decleor Hydrating Oil Serum. 


Feather & Down Sleep Essentials | Feather & Down | Various Prices
Made in England, the debut collection from Feather & Down features bath, body and home fragrance products, specially created to encourage a restful night’s sleep through a bedtime ritual and the carefully blended Feather and Down sleep fragrance. To promote National Bed Month, I think a set from Feather & Down would be the perfect gift for Mum this Mother's Day - I mean, what parent doesn't need a helping hand to sleep at night, and with their gorgeous scent, mums can settle off to sleep. 

I picked out some of their products that would make an ideal gift (they even have them in their Sleep Essentials Kit too). Sleep Balm, Pillow Spray and Shower Cream contain a blend of relaxing essential oils to encourage a restful night’s sleep, helping you to wake up feeling refreshed and bright, ready for a new day. The Feather & Down Pillow Spray has recently won Best New Health & Wellbeing Product at the Beauty Awards with OK!


It's no shock that chocolate would be on this list and what better than the amazing Elizabeth Shaw chocolates. From the sumptuous long, chocolate Flutes that come in 5 delicious flavours to the Crisp, delicious honeycomb in four different flavours covered in chocolate. You can also get some truly divine Elizabeth Shaw Biscuits too which come in 4 flavours - Raisin & Hazelnut, Coconut & Hazelnut, Raisin & Cocoa and Mint & Cocoa.


Borgo Molino Prosecco | Co-op | £9.99
It was obvious that something alcoholic would be on this list, and what better than a gorgeous bottle of Prosecco. This opulent looking Prosecco has a rich fragrant bouquet. It is dry on the palate with notes of green apple and citrus fruits. It looks stylish and alternative, and is perfect for mums who like something fresh and fruity with classic style.

Maple & Vanilla Bean Soy Scented Candle | Lillyrocket | £8.00
Made from 100% soy wax, these small batch candles have been hand poured in the UK. With different choices of scents and designs on the front, I picked out this 'Mum makes a house a home' design and went for the sweet maple and Honey blend with the deliciously sweet notes of Vanilla and Brown Sugar which makes up the Maple & Vanilla Bean candle. 

These vegan friendly candles have a burn time of approximately 40 hours and come in a jar which measures 8.5cm high x 6.5cm diameter and features a traditional style gold coloured screw top metal lid with a choice of 10 different scents. 


Molly Purse Bag | Mia Tui | £28.00
If your mum, like me, has a bag for every occasion, then I'm sure a purse bag will be on her list of must-haves too. The Molly from Mia Tui is the ultimate small purse you can wear across your body. It has a fully detachable and adjustable cross-body strap together with a wrist strap, allowing two different ways of using the bag.

There are 6 sections to this small, but ever so handy, purse bag - 2 sections for 3 credit cards each (6 in total), 1 zipped section for change, a front pocket with magnetic closure and 2 larger pockets for phone and bank notes. It also comes in tons of colours too, my favourite being this stunning Rose Gold. 


Me Time Box for Moms | Baby2Body | £25.00
Baby2Body is the digital, personalized health and wellbeing coach for pregnant women and new mothers. Baby2Body is the only global, data-driven platform dedicated to optimizing women’s health, fitness, and mental wellbeing during and after pregnancy by coaching them with effective exercises, nutrient-rich recipes, techniques for tending to emotional wellbeing and fun tips on tending to fashion and beauty.

The Me Time Box for Moms includes carefully selected products to help moms unwind, relax and take care of themselves - so is the perfect gift for any new mum out there. 


Let’s Celebrate Chocolate Cake Kit | Delicious Alchemy | £5.00
The brand-new kit, launched by gluten and dairy free experts, Delicious Alchemy, means that you can treat loved ones to a deliciously rich homemade chocolate cake with ease - so easy that even kids can make it as you can see from T's creation above. Each kit comes complete with a gluten and dairy free chocolate sponge mix, chocolate icing sugar, multi-coloured sprinkles and icing sugar to write a personalised message.
