Mother's day gift ideas

If like me you're a bit stuck on what to buy for Mother's Day this Sunday (for the UK), here are some little inspirational ideas which might help!

*  These hand creams from L'Occitane are so smooth and smell delicious.  I have the cocoa flower hand cream - it's lasted for ages and makes my hand feel so soft afterwards!

*  For something a little bit more unique, how about these personalised glasses case from not on the high street at £18

*  Another lovely gift idea from not on the high street is the Pamper Me Bath Time gift box, available in three fragrances - English Rose, Orchard Fruits and Patchouli and Lavender

*  Why don't you have a look at what treats your local hotels and restaurants are offering?  The Vale Resort is a gorgeous hotel not far from Cardiff, who are offering a Mother's Day Break package from £89.  This package includes:
  • 1 night luxury accommodation
  • Full Welsh breakfast
  • Full day use of relaxation facilities in the Spa
  • Feel Good Facial (25 minute)
  • Express Manicure (25 minute)
  • Afternoon tea in the Spa
  • Use of extensive leisure facilities including 20m pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool bath and gym
  • FREE parking
If you want to pamper your mum this is such a lovely treat!

What are you buying for your mum on Mother's Day?



  1. Goodness! You are way ahead of me. But that's good because every year I get stuck on what I should give her. These ideas are great!

    1. I get stuck too!!! I'm going for something personalised this year for a change!

  2. I use L'Occitane hand creams and they are really nice...with Shea butter, they make your hands feel really hydrated and smooth.
    I am still not sure what I am going to get my's always hard as I try to be maybe something for the kitchen.

    Loving the blog, now following
