Mothers Day Gifts – a few ideas from Annabel and Grace

Sunday 27 March is coming up fast and we all have wonderful women in our lives that we’d like to show our appreciation to. It could be a present, it could be an extra long hug or an offer to do the washing up for a week! If you or your children are stuck for ideas for Mothers Day gifts, read on (and send the link to this article to your husband/partner!):

Annabel: U BEAUTY GIFT SET

I love it when my daughters tell me about a beauty product that they think I will like. We are always sharing tips especially now they are both 30+ and are really wanting to take care of their skin. Having said all of that they are much more aware of what is available than I was at their age. However, with U Beauty it is my turn to tell them about a gift set that I would really love to receive on Mother’s Day. I am a big fan of U Beauty but I know that their products have high-end prices. I am a firm believer that skincare products need to be exceptional as you are massaging them into your skin and you want to know that the ingredients are exceptional and the product will do what it claims.

I have been lucky enough to try all of the U Beauty products and they are extraordinary. I have sun damaged skin, not badly but I do need to use concealer and/or foundation. However, after using the U Beauty Resurfacing Compound my skin has improved beyond my wildest hopes. Pores are less visible, lines have reduced and my skin is so much brighter and I am now not wearing concealer on my cheek area.

So this gift set of a 15ml Resurfacing Compound (£85) with a FREE 10ml SUPER Hydrator (£48 Value) is such a good way to try out U Beauty for yourself. This offer is only available until 31st March.

“The Resurfacing Compound quickly reached cult status (a.k.a. it sold out everywhere), and so we weren’t surprised to learn that The SUPER Hydrator would raise the skincare bar yet again.” – Byrdie

Annabel: LIFE ARMOUR SWEET DREAMS GIFT SET

The Sweet Dreams Gift set is a wonderful gift for any Mum. I have been using the Drops of Slumber for some time. They give me a wonderful night’s sleep which is often top of most Mum’s list of needs. The addition of the tea makes a great gift set. A cup of tea before you go to bed and then the Slumber Drops and I think you will have the sleep of babies.

Grace: GORGEOUS GARDEN GIFTS

With Spring officially starting this weekend, lots of us turn our minds to our gardens. It can be an exciting time – planning what to plant whether we have a substantial plot, a balcony, a few pots by the front door or would like a wonderful new house plant. Check out Gardenesque’s excellent range of Mothers Day Gifts here.

Mum In A Million: this stunning hybrid tea rose has a profusion of well-scented flowers that appear continuously for several months each year. The roses last for ages after being cut and put into a vase. £19.99 from Crocus. MORE INFO

Grace: DIPTIQUE SOLID PERFUME

My friend Bumble was given one of these solid perfumes which she carries in her handbag and absolutely loves. Diptique uses an alcohol-free wax to create a scented balm that reveals its fragrance when released onto the warmth of the skin. This Philosykos fragrance is eco-responsible, refillable and inspired by a grove of fig trees warmed by the Greek summer sun. Other equally uplifting fragrances are available. Quality exudes here – from the product to the packaging. A real treat. £48 from Space NK.

And on the subject of fabulous fragrance, if you know the brand your mother likes, PerfumeDirect has some money saving offers here.

Grace: UPCYCLED SARI SILK PYJAMAS

What a brilliant idea! Luxurious silk pyjamas which have been upcycled from handpicked vintage saris. With a handy little pocket & buttons made from coconut shell these beautiful pjs are super comfortable as well as friendly to the environment. Sari silk keeps you cool in the Summer and cosy in the Winter – so an all year hit! £59 from Not On The High Street

Grace: ELEGANT SILVER LOCKET

This sterling silver round locket from Hersey & Son is a timeless design that’s so wearable. Has space inside for a treasured photo or lock of hair.

Hersey products are crafted to the highest standards in their London workshop.

From £60 depending on size less 8% off with code MUMLOVE8 until 31st March 2022 as well as free standard UK delivery.

Finally, a few other thoughtful gifts that Grace has spotted

  • Just One Pan – a brilliant cookbook that we may have mentioned before (!) but it’s packed full of excellent time/effort saving tips and the recipes are delish. £16.54
  • From Yolo to Solo – a very entertaining book that proves life is for living. Read Annabel’s review here.
