Because Mum’s deserve to feel special
I’m a big believer that we should try our very hardest to make our mum’s feel special every single day of the year, after all we do have a lot to thank them for! Without sounding too soppy, if we think about how much our mum’s actually do for us- the list really is endless! Mother’s day is the perfect time to make your mum feel even more loved and show her how much you appreciate everything she does. I believe the way to every women’s heart is through flowers, gorgeous scents & beautiful jewellery so that’s what I’ve based this year’s gift guide on, because mum deserves the best!
Let’s face it, as women, when we receive a flowers we instantly feel loved. Who knows whether it’s down to the element of surprise or because it’s a break to our normal routine? Whatever it is, we know it works! If you haven’t been organised enough to pop to the local florists, or have just had a hectic week at work and completely forgotten, don’t panic there is still time to put a smile on your mum’s face this Sunday. Interflora have a wide range of beautiful flowers so you will be guaranteed to get hold of your mum’s favourites. If you order by 4pm on Saturday 5th March they’ll arrive in time for Mother’s day! Personally, I love the Wonderfully White, Mother’s Day Basket & Vera Wang Scented Delight.
Choosing a fragrance can be challenging as it’s a very personal choice, but these two scents smell divine. Firstly my favourite of all time, which my mum loves too; Hugo Boss Orange Women. It’s a warm passionate fragrance that combines the uniquely liberating notes of crispy apple and white florals with a vanilla and sandalwood heart and available at Boots for £57.
Of course warm scents aren’t every mums cup of tea, and for those who like a more floral fragrance, I’d go for the sophisticated and sexy Gucci Guilty Eau de Toilette available also at Boots for £43. It’s a perfect evening smell with hints of of mandarin, pink pepper, lilac, violet, heliotrope, patchouli and amber.
Although there’s no other feeling like unwrapping a gorgeous gift, sometimes the most memorable gifts you can give on Mother’s day is an experience you can enjoy together. Creating memories will last a lifetime and that quality time spent together will really help you and your mum stay extra close. I’ve always been a lover of using Groupon to find the best deals in your local area. The mother & daughter makeover photo-shoots are a perfect keep sake, or, if you both are adrenaline junkies they always have plenty of supercar driving experiences which are bound to get your heart racing.
Finally one of the most personal gifts you can give is a piece of jewellery. If you love your mum but unfortunately don’t have a massive budget, here’s some great quality elegant pieces from Pandora & Emozioni which will make her feel special.
Pandora are one of the UK’s largest jewellery brands and specialise in creating pieces that celebrate the unique bonds of love and family, perfect for Mother’s day hey? They have a fabulous selection of affordable yet great quality accessories, my mum and I especially love the rings. The sterling silver Heart Stacking Ring at £35 or the Delicate Bow Ring at £40 look great and accessorise your everyday outfits perfectly.
Treating mum to a new necklace is a lovely idea, Emozioni do a fantastic range of interchangeable pendant coins to create a look that truly reflects her ever-changing emotions. How it works; you choose your chain, then choose from the elegant array of sterling silver or gold plate diamond keepers which will house your personal coin collection to perfection. They have a DEAL on at the minute where you get a free coin up to £50 when you purchase ANY Coin Keeper and ANY chain.
