Mothers Day Gift Guide

It's almost that time of year when we start racking our brains on what to get the Mother in our life and celebrate the greatness of all she is and all she does. I have been sent a selection of items to feature in a gift guide to make your job a little easier this year. With not many shops open yet, thanks to lockdown 3.0, the majority can be purchased online and delivered to your home!

Lavera’s MY AGE Skincare range is formulated with active ingredients such as hibiscus and ceramides, which offers the perfect care for mature skin. Hibiscus actively combats the ageing process by firming and lifting skin, whilst plant-based ceramides form a protective layer to help prevent moisture loss and visible damage from environmental stressors. Combined, these key ingredients help to fight the signs of ageing whilst leaving feeling hydrated and moisturised. No matter where your mum's tastes or beauty needs lie — or if you don't know exactly what those are because we know mums are notoriously hard to shop for — Lavera’s MY AGE Skincare is the perfect indulgence they deserve! You can get the whole range from the Lavera website delivered right to your door with prices starting from £22.95.

Now I know my Mum loves a little gin and I love a little vodka tipple every now and then, so these miniatures are perfect. The best things in life often come in small packages and this new trio of beautifully sculpted miniatures is no exception from the Isle of Wights distillery, rrp £16.50. The 100% recyclable pack features a glass miniature of each of Mermaid’s premium spirits - its signature Mermaid Gin, Mermaid Pink Gin and recently launched Mermaid Salt Vodka. The mini bottles are stunning and can be kept afterwards for decorative keepsakes.
Whether you live with your Mum or you’re planning on leaving a basket of goodies on her doorstep this Mother’s Day, be sure to whip up a home-baked treat for her by following one of these easy recipes from OGGS. Don’t worry if Mum is following a plant-based diet or avoids eggs as OGGS recipes use OGGS Egg Alternative Aquafaba. If you fancy whipping up your own cake then the OGGS Egg Alternative Aquafaba retails at £1.95 and is available from Sainsbury's, Asda and Waitrose. Not a baker……not a problem. Spoil mum with  OGGS Zesty Lemon Cake, a luscious lemon sponge cake, every slice is zesty, zingy and light. This light but zesty cake is perfect for sharing over a cuppa. The Zesty Lemon cake retails at £5 and can be purchased from Waitrose and Ocado.

I love a personalised gift and not just a print have hundreds available, this one caught my eye straight away. Song lyrics of your favourite song with your favourite line overlayed on top. There are over 30 different colours to choose from and you can even add a personalised message. You can choose any song and they can customise your request to exactly what you want. The design process is simple, just fill in the song title, main song line, colour for the lyrics and finally your personalised message. Available on A3 & A4 or framed for extra, prices start at £15.90.
The gruum range is based right in my hometown of Manchester and most of the products are made right here in Manchester. gruum don't label their products as mens or womens and offer a single range suitable for all. They never test on animals and only source from suppliers who do the same. The haircare heroes set is £24 and is completely plastic-free. The shampoo and conditioner bar is free from any nasties, parabens and artificial colours. For the environmentally friendly Mum, this is the perfect gift, the shampoo and conditioner bar even come with a tray to place your bars to dry out after use. The bars are available in nourishing, brightening, revitalising and colour protect.

Sudocrem is a motherhood staple isn't it? Its got soo many uses and I personally use it all the time. With Mothers Day in mind, why not make your Mum smile with a gift in the post that’s been made just for her? It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, the excitement of receiving something mysterious in the post never wears off. Sudocrem have just launched their new Personalised My Little Sudocrem portal online at https://personalised-sudocrem.com. You choose the name, design, even a gift box and Sudocrem will do the rest.  

 Have you already got your Mothers Day gifts covered this year? Are you more of a bunch of flowers and card person or do you go all out? Myself and my Mum will probably order in an afternoon tea from a local business and have a quiet chilled out day.

Thanks For Reading
