Mother's Day Gift Guide


Mother's Day is slowly approaching and everyone will need to start thinking of ways to treat their mothers nicely! Debenhams kindly got in touch to ask what my mother taught me and out of all the many great things she's taught me, one of them was to simply look after myself. I've been taught to look after myself in various ways like my skin, health, and just in general in my life. Mother's day is a perfect day to get your mom to do the same for herself and buy her things that she normally wouldn't. 

Along with a beautiful set up of breakfast in bed, you can get things which your mom can pamper herself with. My go-to firstly would be a skincare set because I feel like many mothers tend to forget to look after their own skin. The Clarins Cleansing Collection is perfect as it has a cleansing milk, toner and eye makeup remover all for £23.00 which is great if you're on a budget. If you'd rather gift your mom a set of bath and body products, the L'Occitane set would be perfect.

In addition to the skincare and bath products, another great idea would be to gift something like candles, diffusers or just homeware that you know she would love (after all, you know your mom best). If you've got more money to spend then diffusers from Yankee Candle or Sheridan would be a great addition to the skin products. For those on a budget, a small candle of a scent you know she would love will of course do.

Another go-to for me is beauty products. Your mother can never have enough lipsticks. Me and my siblings love gifting luxurious lipsticks besides the actual gift like jewellery for example. A neutral every day lip color like the Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color in the shade Neutral Rose is beautiful and for a bold red lip, the stunning shade Retro Red. Besides lipstick, perhaps you could get your mom something she needs in her makeup collection. I opted for theBalm Mary Lou Manizer highlighter because she doesn't own any highlighters, so I chose one that I knew would look great on her.

There's nothing better than self-made gifts, so maybe you could think of something sentimental that you could make with a little bit of help from YouTube. If your mother reads, searching on Goodreads about her favorite genre would help you find a nice book for her to read. Lastly of course, you could either opt for a card from a store or search on Pinterest for a printable card like I did along with a bouquet of flowers. For more ideas, you could visit Debenhams' page dedicated to Mother's Day!

I hope this post was helpful and gave you some ideas of what to gift your mother! If you have any questions, feel free to comment :)

  23. Mother's Day in Oz is not until May, but these are some great ideas for gifts! My Mum always taught me to speak my mind and don't back down for what you believe in, but also be mindful of other people's beliefs. She's a great person, my hero :)
