Mothers Day Gift Guide

Isn't time flying this year, I cannot believe we are almost at the end of February already and Mothers Day is just around the corner and with Mothers Day in mind I have put together a guide of thoughtful gifts ranging in price that I am sure some Mums would like to receive.  My Mum means the world to me and I like to show her all year round that I love her, not just on Mothers Day but that doesn't stop me treating her to some lovely goodies on this special day too.

Itty Bittys from Hallmark UK
Me and my daughter love these cute little collectibles from Hallmark, amongst the collections you can find cute characters from The Wizard of Oz, Justice League and Peanuts. Priced at £6 each or 2 for £10 at selected retailers including Hallmark UK and Amazon.

Lacura Argan Oil Skin and Hair care from Aldi
Aldi have embraced the Moroccan beauty trend by supplying this organic hair and skin care range containing Argan oil. The range includes Anti-Ageing Day Cream £2.99, Anti Ageing Night Cream £2.99, Anti Ageing Hand Cream £1.79, Shampoo and Conditioner £1.99, Cream Hair Treatment £2.99 and an amazing Oil Treatment for 2.99. You can buy all the products which smell and feel fabulous on the body and hair from the 21st February in Aldi stores for a limited time.

Case Logic Snap View Case
If your mum is tech savvy then why not purchase her a lovely new case for her tablet.  The Case Logic SnapView case is available to fit the IPad, IPad Mini and the Samsung Galaxy Tab and retails at around £29.99 for the IPad II version in Argos. The case is available in a wide range of colours all to compliment your IPad and with multiple viewing angles so that you can enjoy working in many typing positions.  A case also offers added protection to your screen, I learnt this the hard and expensive way and now ensure my IPad is covered at all times.

Beanies Coffee Stash Box
If your mum is a coffee lover then why not treat her to a selection of coffee. Beanies Coffee Stash contains 9 50g flavours of instant coffee to tempt her tastebuds and can be a refreshing change from your usual coffee. Flavours such as Mint Chocolate, Double Chocolate, Ginger Bread, Amaretto Almond and Irish Cream give the coffee unique flavours and only 2 calories per serving. This coffee is suitable to vegans and vegetarians and retails at £22.50.

Choc-o-lait Hot Chocolate Gift Set from Qwerkity
These mouth wateringly good blocks of Belgian chocolate on sticks which you dissolve in mugs of hot milk are sure to be a winner. The gift set contains 9 sticks, 3 milk chocolate, 3 dark chocolate and 3 hazelnut chocolate and taste so divine. This Mothers Day Gift is available from Qwerkity priced £16.99.

Ferrero Rocher
Since I was first introduced to Ferroro Rocher they have been one of my firm favourites, I just love that crunchy hazelnut in the middle of all that cream and wafer layer. The heart shaped gift box of the classic Ferroro Rocher is an ideal way of showing your mum you love her or if she loves coconut then why not opt for the Raffaello mini box, similar to the classic but with a toasted almond inner and coconut outer, either are delicious.

Joan Collins Contra Time Skincare Collection
Any woman loves beauty products and the Contra Time collection contains ingredients to protect the skin whilst preventing signs of ageing. The range includes a Scrupulous Cleanser containing nourishing yoghurt extract to soothe and soften the skin £30, Rose Optimise Lotion to balance the skins pH levels £25, Day Cream to protect and hydrate whilst reducing the signs of ageing £35, Eye Serum to reverse the signs of stress and lack of sleep £35 and Night Cream to help reduce the signs of fatigue and leave your face feeling fresher and brighter £40. The skincare range is available from Joan Collins Beauty, QVC, Urban Retreat and Harrods.

KISS Gel Lamp, Polishes and Treatment Systems
How about treating your mum to a gift that will last, the KISS Gel Lamp costs £38.99 and this will allow her to pamper her own hands and save money. The Gel Polish costs £13.99 and is available in 15 trendy colours, each bottle provides approximately 24 manicures, just think how much money this could save her. KISS also have Treatment Systems which can help her to have beautiful nails, Cuticle Care, Strengthening, Repair and Growth which contain all the items needed to help with problem nails priced at £7.99. These are available from Superdrug and Tesco.

Travel Case from Aldi
If your mum travels a lot then why not treat her to a new travel case, Aldi will have this Premium Travel Case in stores from the 21st February. The travel case has a large main compartment with 2-way zip, expandable zip (for when you come back with more than you went with), telescopic handle and 2 wheels. This is ideal for a flight case and is really light and would make a great travel companion. The case will be on sale at Aldi priced at £17.99 and is great quality.

Zippo Candle Lighter
This has to be the ultimate gadget for any woman who loves candles, I cannot tell you how many times I have struggled to light the wick on my candle jars when they are near the bottom. Not only will she be able to light her candle but she won’t end up with burnt fingers. The Zippo Candle Lighter runs on butane gas and is available in a pearl or brushed chrome finish and costs £13.75 from Zippo.

What would you really like for Mothers Day? I would love to hear your ideas.


  1. Ohh great ideas.
    That Beanies Coffee is amazing isn't it.
    As long as I get a card and maybe some flowers I'll be happy. Anything else is a bonus x

    1. Thank you Kim, I hope you get some xx

  2. Some great ideas on here. I like the sound of the small coffee jars. I am always intrigued by the sound of different flavours but never brave enough and to possibley waste money on a big jar just in case I don't like it.

  3. A fab selection of items I love beanies coffee and would love the little selection as a gift.
