Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas (That Show You Really Care)

Hey Lovelies!

If you are anything like me, you will have had many good intentions of buying that perfect Mother’s Day gift – but somehow, the day is almost here and you have nothing (scream). Fellow disorganised people – here are some amazing last-minute Mother’s Day gifts that will show her you really care.

1.For New Mums Try: First Mother’s Day Personalised Book by LETTERFEST, £22, www.notonthehighstreet.com

Should you be the partner of a new mum, listen up: the first Mother’s Day needs to be memorable – and nothing says thoughtful and precious like this gorgeous book.

The story, written on behalf of baby, thanks mum for everything she does. Simply include the details of the baby’s age, name and your personalised message and LETTERFEST will do the rest. This keepsake can be treasured for many years to come.

2.For Young Children Opt For: Why I Love You Mummy Poem Print, £14, www.notonthehighstreet.com

How sweet is this? For Mother’s Day a few years ago, I received a loving poem from my child and it made my day. This poem is a definite tear-jerker and winning formula for a magical Mother’s Day. The poem, written by Joanna Miller is available in 2 colourways and for an additional fee, a short message may be added at the bottom. So adorable.

3.For Teenagers Try: Sound Asleep iMusic Pillow, £14.99, www.prezzybox.com

Teenagers will undoubtedly veer towards the cooler gifts – and nothing seems better than this iMusic pillow (particularly for the sleep deprived adults out there). The speakers are contained within the pillow, so mum can chill out to meditation sounds or drift off to sleep with some relaxing music. If the TV is more her thing, this pillow can even be set up to listen to her favourite shows instead. Job done – just don’t forget a hug!

4.For Grown-Ups Try: Chill Out Day With The Escape At Hilton for Two, £99, www.prezzybox.com

Why not treat your mum to the perfect escape from life’s stress with this must-have pampering present? Included in the price is a delicious afternoon tea for two as well as a 50-minute treatment of their choice. So, if a swim, sauna, followed by a facial or back massage sounds like something your mum would truly appreciate, go ahead and spoil her. She deserves it.

5.For Your Nan Try: Personalised Key Ring – Silver Plate Rose, £14.99, www.gettingpersonal.co.uk

Valentine’s Day Gifts That Are WAY Better Than Chocolate And Flowers

Hey Lovelies!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whilst we are aware it may well be yet another well-marketed way of cashing in on the customer, we need something to cheer us up on the frankly freezing cold and dreary winter mornings – and what better way of doing this than imagining the postman falling over as he struggles to carry a tonne of cards and presents to your door? For anyone wondering what to gift the love of their life this February 14, read on:

1.Personalised Wood Memory Box For Couples by DUST AND THINGS, £17.49 (Was £34.99), notonthehighstreet.com

OK, so maybe there is something that beats the memory box; behold the Tiffany’s Bead Bracelet. As a true sucker for all Tiffany’s jewellery, I may be slightly biased – but I think this beautifully elegant bead bracelet featuring a mini heart tag in pink would be a winner this Valentine’s Day.

3.Personalised Plaited Leather Bracelet, £14.99, prezzybox.com

Whilst it might not go down to well should he buy you an expensive Tiffany’s bracelet and I return you gifted him this – something has to be said for the romantic gesture this man’s bracelet evokes. Featuring a matte metal engraved charm, he doesn’t need to be a hippie or surfer to appreciate this gorgeously stylish band. After all, each time he glances at his watch/Fitbit/sleeve he will (hopefully) smile at your thoughtful declaration of love.

4.Personalised I Love You Candle, £8.99, findmeagift.co.uk

Everyone loves a candle, don’t they? Even if they aren’t at the top of your fave list, come the most romantic night of the year, these little gems are a must-have. So, what better way to show your adoration for that special someone by making them their perfect meal, amidst candlelight that is that little bit more special?

5.Multi Photo Upload Framed Print – Photos With Message, £19.99, gettingpersonal.co.uk

Last-Minute Beauty Stocking Fillers For Under £40

Hey Lovelies!

Well, it’s just over a week until Santa tackles the chimney (excuse me while I nip outside to scream in sheer panic). If like me, you’ve almost run out of cash and at present the stockings don’t exactly look brimming, read on. Here are some amazing beauty stocking filler gifts (at such a good price you can even buy 2 of each and keep one for yourself). #Hohoho!

1.Benefit Benetint Lip And Cheek COlor, £21.67 (Saving £3.83 Online Only), boots.com

For beauty lovers of all ages, check out this amazing stocking filler gift. Whether the colour in your lips is beginning to fade and you want to inject a boost of beautiful colour for Christmas or are simply after a key colour trend to see you through party season, Benefit’s Benetint is the perfect answer.

My advice – don’t think of this as a lipstick per se when applying to your lips. When I first tried this I simply brushed it on – big mistake. What you need to actually do is brush a few drops on and blend, repeating the process until you achieve the desired colour. The results are a gorgeous rosy glow that truly lasts. LOVE!

2.L’Oreal Double Extension Beauty Tubes Mascara, £11.99, Superdrug

Do you know someone who loves the extra-long lash look? Instead of buying more falsies (that are bound to hang off by their third cocktail) why not treat them to the next best thing? L’Oreal’s Double Extension Mascara offers a two-step system comprising of a conditioning base coat  (loaded with Ceramide R and containing fibres), of which ensures a luscious lengthening effect. The other side gives your lashes that much sought-after deep colour. This is one of my favourite mascaras – no clumping, smudging or mess – just stunning lashes!

3.Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Duo Gift Set, £36 (Worth £48), feelunique.com

If you read my recent article on the best setting sprays, you will know Urban Decay is one of my most treasured brands.  Their innovative formula combines Proprietary Temperature Control Technology that will prevent your makeup (and you) from going into meltdown mode. This super long-lasting spray means that you can stop worrying about the whether or not your makeup still looks amazing (then going to the bathroom, looking aghast at your reflection and spending the following 20 minutes trying to work out if the hot guy who smiled at you might actually have been smiling for the wrong reason). With Urban Decay’s magic All Nighter you can simply get on with enjoying the evening and know that everyone will be smiling at you for the right reasons!

Have an amazing Christmas! xx
