As a mum of very small children I never expect anything special for Mother’s Day. There is nothing better than a homemade card, a drawing or perhaps a bunch of flowers. However with Mother’s Day just around the corner I have put together a gift guide with few ideas for different styles, should you want to treat your mum a little bit.
Sunday 6th March is Mothers Day in the UK. Mother’s Day is the time of the year to spoil all the mummies out there. My favourite presents are the handmade bits and pieces my children bring from nursery /school every year and of nothing beats a nice bunch of flowers.
Let’s face it, babies do not need any Christmas presents, it’s us the adults that love buying something for the youngest members of the family. Their first Christmas is always a very special time, so here are a few ideas in case you are still looking for presents.
Unfortunately for me, and for everybody around me, my birthday is the week before Christmas so I usually get all the presents for the year in December.
I have put together a birthday and Christmas wish list with all the things I’d love to get.
It’s nearly the end of October, Halloween tomorrow and soon we will all be talking about Christmas. As we are heading into winter I thought I’d share the things I’m currently loving.
White company Winter Candle – This is one of my all-time favourite candles.
It has a mixture of orange, cinnamon and clove and it really transports you to Christmas. It makes the room smell divine and as the name says, it really makes you feel all wintery and cosy. I always try to start using it in December but this year I have started earlier.
I just love this range from the white company, I already have the room diffuser and will be probably be buying the potpourri.
Oliver Bonas Ring – I have mentioned before in the blog my love for Oliver Bonas, it really is my go to shop whenever I want to treat myself or buy gifts for friends or family.
My partner surprised me with this ring a couple of weeks ago and I love it. It has semiprecious stones- although at the moment I can’t really work out what the main stone is, and it has a beautiful and unusual design.
I have been wearing it every day and I think I will put more bits from this range in my Christmas / Birthday wish list.
Do you know what the stones are?
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel – I had never tried Sally Hansen products before until I picked up a bottle of the Miracle Gel other day. What a great discovery… I now love it and I have been wearing it ever since.
It is a great product and very easy to apply, the brush is wide and covers the nail in only one stroke. It only needs two coats to look perfect. My manicure is still looking good and chip free least 5 or 6 days after applying it which is unusual for a non-salon polish. I will definitely be buying more colours of this range.
Have you ever tried this range?
I’ve also been loving the lovely weather we have been having in London, until today. It has been very mild and even sunny most of the time, it’s lovely to be able to leave the house and not feel like winter is here although I am sure that is about to change soon.
