Daffodils

Daffodils

When i was little, my dad stumbled home in the early hours and bought my mum some daffodils stolen from someone else’s garden as a gift. This always seemed so sweet, romantic and a little rebelious to me. Every time i see one, they remind me of being a child again. (Which i love because it was always lots and lots of fun!) I always consider Mother’s day to be really big occasion, but for mine, she’s SO hard to buy for. Not because she’s ungrateful or anything, but because she can’t have the usual generic presents like chocolate & alcohol and only likes one type of perfume that the whole family end up buying at Christmas so she ends up with a serious backlog! So, i’ve been doing some internet browsing and found some treats you all might like for gift ideas for your mummys and you can even tell your pops too!  Happy Mothers Day! xo 

Warm her up. 

Basile Floral Chiffon Silk Scarf £41.89

   I love love love silk scarves. I have tons and the collection keeps building every time i go to a charity shop or vintage shop because they are so cheap and each one is always different . Some even have weird/wonderful patterns on such as a random dog or something. I found an Italian company which does have a UK site and it’s called Forzieri and has all sorts of scarfs, beautiful leather gloves, shoes, bags etc for him and her. I found a lovely silk scarf  for £41.89 which is longer than the average scarf, but you can choose from some gorgeous colours. They are specially made in Italy, pure silk and delivered in 24 hours! Perfect gift! The gloves are from the same site and come in a range of amazing colours too. They are real leather but unlined so unsure how warm they’d be but they do have a bigger selection on the site with lining but they cost a  bit more money. The ones i looked at are perfect for spring. Below is  just one of the colours but there are more available on the site such as hot pink, mustard yellow, lilac, turqoise, white & black.

 Pamper her.

 

Pampering

Pampering

 

There are TONS of ways to get pampered, but i came across a brilliant deal on Lastminute.com which seemed like a bargain. For £12.50 you can treat your mum (or yourself..or both!) to two mini pampering treats such as a pedicure, a manicure, waxing, tanning, a massage or a facial. I’ve had a look at the details and you’ll receive a voucher valid for 9 months but you should book the appointment before then to ensure the salon is free. Each treatment will last around 20 minutes each and there are 50 participating salons nationwide. Bargain! (although it doesn’t say where/which salons on the site but if your open to adventure then this sounds like a good laugh!) Check out the link above for full T&C’s before purchasing anything! Another site with lots of pampering on was Buy a Gift.co.uk and it had some great bargains for spa treatments and even a photo shoot for mother and daughter. Click the link above to see more! 

 

Give her a Gadget!  

 If your mum is gadget savvy, then I want one of those.com is the perfect place to go. They have all sorts of quirky gadgets on there such as iPod alarm clocks, Emergency phone chargers, Diamante Mice for computers and so on. The prices start really cheaply as well so there definitely worth keeping on your list for birthdays and especially Fathers Day!

 

 Give her some Charm.

 All ladies  love expensive jewellery (personally i prefer cheap and tacky..) but mum’ s love it. I think charm bracelets are a lovely gift because each occasion they can keep being added too and personalised.  Links of London have a charm maker website and prices start from £70. They’ve got tons of different charms you can choose from and they cost around £45 per charm.

For something a little bit cheaper, i found the base bracelet from The Charm Store, Amazon which is cheaper costing only £61.60 reduced from £154 and the charms are around £5 upwards. So it’s definitely worth shopping around for.

 

 

 

Personalise her Card.

There is only one site which i will recommend for this, and it’s Moonpig.com (YES, i know the advert is annoying  BUT if you can see past the pig in a space helmet and annoying jingle, you will come across something quite wonderful). They are a brilliant site for personalising cards. You can add photos, any writing you want to other cards and it for a standard sized card will only set you back £2.99! It really makes a card special. You can even add flowers as an extra gift. For Valentines day, me and my boyfriend both sent each other cards from it and i chose the ‘Oi!’ background (A rip of Hello! mag) and added loads of sweet photos with somehumourous text it was such a lovely change from standard cards!

 

 So, I hope that helped you guys figure out some gift ideas. Comments below on any gift’s you’ve already bought or anything else you’d like to comment about!

Annie Lennox Collection and about £30 of Thorntons chocolate. She don’t care she’s diabetic, nor that Annie Lennox is rubbish, but because its “Mothers Day” she gets to be a bitch.

Why the hell isn’t there a “Son’s day”??? It’s not fair!

haha Well James, because son’s didn’t squeeze out a baby from a small hole and then mother them until they were, well actually you still live with yours don’t you babycakes?! haha THAT’S WHY! Freeloader:P..and in reply to your text NOOO i don’t think i am out tonight, i have a blog to maintain and a marriage of brownies to keep up with! xxx
