Mother’s Day is just around the corner and this year it falls on Sunday March 26th, so there is plenty of time to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift. If you are as old as me, you’ll most likely find it hard to choose a present for your mum, mother-in-law or a special friend who is a mum who deserves a present on Mother’s Day. I’ve searched high and low for the perfect Mother’s Day gift and have come across some lovely and also novel ideas for you.
Personalised Mug and Tea Chest from Mr. Nutcase.
Mr. Nutcase is a website I’ve only just discovered and has personalised gifts for any occasions, including Mother’s Day. From candles to photo mugs, from cushions to teabag tins, they have a huge range of items to choose from and to personalise, meaning you are bound to find something for your Mum or Wife for Mother’s Day. I ordered a personalised mug (for myself I might add) which has a picture of myself, BattleKid and BattleDog on it. The process of uploading my picture and creating my mug was extremely easy and before I knew it my new mug was in my basket, ready to checkout. I also ordered a teabag tin for my Mum from BattleKid. We are a big tea drinking family, show me an Irish family who isn’t, and with my parents soon retiring to Portugal I thought this teabag tin was lovely and bright for their new adventures abroad. I personalised it from BattleKid and think his grandmother will love it. As mentioned there is a huge range of items on Mr. Nutcase that would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift and prices start from as little as £4.99.
Morning Sidekick Journal.
This is a new science based journal designed to help you start your day earlier (and easier) in order to help your productivity and personal happiness in just 3 minutes every morning. The Morning Sidekick Journal helps you set goals, track your progress and start new habits with laser focus. We mums could all do with an extra few minutes in the day and to have something to help us get up an extra few minutes earlier to get stuff done would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift. At the time of writing this post I haven’t received my hardcopy of the Morning Sidekick Journal so I cannot comment on the journal nor its effectiveness but I did read a good review of it by an American blogger, Bernadette. Anything that could get me out of bed quicker, and up and at it is worth a try. The Morning Sidekick Journal costs $29.70 (or around £24.00, depending on the exchange rate) and is available as a hardcopy or printable PDF. This does ship from the USA so please allow extra time for it to arrive.
Maisie-Jane Necklace Lanyard.
If you have a sister or friend who you’d like to give a Mother’s Day gift to, and they possibly work in an office, then this Maisie-Jane Silver double star necklace lanyard is the ideal gift for them. A modern take on the office lanyard, this necklace will jazz up any office outfit. It has a removable hook to use with a work pass or name badge and can also be worn as a standalone necklace. There are loads of necklace lanyards to choose from with simple chains or chains with charms and there is definitely something for everyone on their website. The necklace lanyards are very reasonably priced at £12.50 and it also comes with a badge/pass holder. And for those of us who are bloggers, this would be perfect for those conferences we all attend. Definitely more snazzy than the fabric necklaces other lanyards come with. Perhaps leave the Maisie-Jane website strategically open on your laptop as a hint to your hubby and maybe you’ll receive one for Mother’s Day!
Beespoke of Devon Aromatherapy Gift Set.
This Aromatherapy Gift Set from Beespoke of Devon would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift for that someone special this year. The beeswax candle, soy wax and essential oil tin candle and skin care aromatherapy cream come packaged in the most beautiful white Beespoke of Devon lidded box which is tied with navy blue ribbon. It is a beautiful gift and one I’m sure any mum would be delighted to receive this Mother’s Day. The candles are made from natural waxes. The tin candle contains pure essential oils and you can choose from Geranium and Lemongrass, Lavender and Orange, Cinnamon and Orange, Grapefruit and Lemongrass, Patchouli and Cedarwood and Peppermint and Lime. I received the Geranium and Lemongrass and it has a lovely fresh scent to it. The skin care cream is free from SLS and parabens with a glycerine base and natural essential oils. I received the Nourishing cream which contains Neroli, Mandarin and Lavender and it is a light, easily absorbed cream with a very subtle but beautiful scent to it. The Beespoke of Devon Aromatherapy Gift Set costs £20 and really is a lovely gift set to give as the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
Welsh Lavender Calm Balm and Hand Cream.
Inspired by the labours of Welsh hill farmers, Farmers’ Welsh Lavender Ltd products are made with lavender grown on the farm just outside Builth Wells. All the Farmers’ creams and balms are made by hand with care. Using naturally derived ingredients, they are not tested on animals nor do they contain any artificial colours or perfumes. The Farmers’ Calm Balm contains lavender, camomile and sandalwood and is designed to help heal and comfort. A perfect size to keep in your handbag, this soothing scented balm can be used anywhere on your body including your lips, temples and under your nose whenever you need a moment of calm. You can even leave it beside your bed to help you drift off to sleep at night, aided by the soothing smell of lavender. The Farmers’ Hand Cream has been developed to help nourish hard working hands and is light, non-greasy and easily absorbed. With a lovely lavender scent the 30ml size tub is perfect for popping into your purse or pocket so it is close to hand (every pun intended). The Farmers’ Calm Balm costs £12.00 (30ml) and the Farmers’ Hand Cream costs £4.00 and £12.00 for a 30ml and 100ml tub, respectively. These two little gems would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift, particularly for someone like me who loves lavender.
