Mothers Day Gift Guide 2015

 Next weekend see's the arrival of Mothers Day and for those of you who, like me, are not too organised but want to treat your Mum...I have gathered together some ideas!

Ranging from the traditional to the more quirky, there should be something here to suit every taste!

If you are really stuck for ideas, My Voucher Codes have created this super helpful quiz to help you narrow down the choices!


Flower delivery is always a popular choice for Mothers Day, especially if your mum lives out of the area like mine does!

I'd never ordered from Appleyard London before but I was so impressed with their delivery and the quality of the flowers and beauty of the arrangement!

My flowers arrived on 23rd February, and today only 3 of them have had to be thrown out...the rest are still looking fresh which I think is amazing 12 days later!!!

If you plan on buying Mothers Day Flowers this year be sure to pay a visit to Appleyard and don't forget to use the exclusive discount code BLOG40 for 40% off the luxury bouquet range!

Fingerprint Jewellery

Bella and Bow offer a wide range of personalised, engraved fingerprint jewellery all of which is perfect for Mothers Day!

An inkless fingerprint kit is sent out in the post to allow you to take your childs fingerprints in the comfort of your own home and in your own time - this was super easy to do using the inkless wipe provided even with a fussy toddler!

I posted the prints back, and within the space of a week my charm had arrived!

The gift wrapping (Which is included in the cost as standard) is absolutely stunning - gift wrapping always really sells a product to me as it's all in the first impressions and Bella & Bow really have excelled in this department!

The charm itself is absolutely beautiful - the perfect little print is adorable, and I love that Tyne's name is engraved on the reverse - I plan on buying one of new babys print when he's born so it's great to be able to distinguish whose print is whose!

The charms are suitable for Pandora bracelets, Chamilla, LoveLinks and Trollbeads - this is how mine looks on my gorgeous Trollbeads bracelet! (See my Trollbeads post HERE for more details on those!)

The personalised heart shaped charm is available HERE for just £45.00!

Personalised Prints from The Day That.....

The Day That offer beautiful framed prints showing the sunrise on the day of your choice.

The print we have shows the sunrise on the day that Tyne was born and is labelled as "Tyne's First Day" which I think is just adorable....I remember so clearly that it was a snowy morning when Tyne was born, and you can feel that frostiness from looking at this beautiful capture.

Just looking at it really takes me back to that morning!

You can choose prints from any day over the past 10 years - you could choose a wedding date, a special anniversary or any other meaningful day since 2005!

Personalised Jewellery

This beautiful family cluster necklace from Little Lightburners is a gorgeous keepsake gift for any mother or grandmother and I think it is a real bargain too!

The 18" snake chain is sterling silver, as are the included heart shaped disc and the leaves which are engraved with your choice of initials.

The cluster also includes beautiful czech beads in colours to signify the birth months of the family members - ours includes aquamarine for March which is when Tyne was born, and Crystal for April which is when the new baby is due (As you can're getting a little hint about new babies name here too! ;)

The necklace comes beautifully wrapped too, and for just £24.00 I think you'd be hard pushed to find a nicer and more thoughtful gift!

Other Ideas

The Green Goddess Fresh Face Mask from MiMi Kits is a pretty unusual gift but a fantastic one nonetheless!
The kits are 100% natural, organic, paraben-free and contain no synthetic ingredients... they provide everything you need for you to make your own beauty treatments!
The Green Goddess Fresh Face Mask makes around 4-6 treatments for mums and kids to enjoy together.  
I found this so much fun to use and really enjoyed the experience of creating my own face mask and seeing exactly what was going into it...and it left my skin feeling really pampered and cared for!
Available HERE for £22.00

The WOW Mask is a brand new Bio-­peptide Aqua Gel mask that contains innovative natural ingredients to restore the skin’s tone, elasticity and hydration to reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.

Each pack contains five masks and can be used for 20-40 minutes.  After washing and drying the face, take the mask out of its protective sleeve and place on the skin.

I was a bit skeptical on whether this would be worth its price tag but I have to say that my skin felt amazing afterwards. It felt  firmer and hydrated and so much smoother than usual. I used this as night and my skin still felt so smooth and moisturised by morning, I swear my make up didn't stick in patches like it usually does!

Available HERE for £99.00 (Or available sold as singles for £20.99).
