Mother's Day Gift Guide

You will never know the true meaning of love until you become a mum. I will never forget getting those two pink lines, my first scan, hearing her heart beat for the first time and then the gush of love I felt when I first saw my daughter. But you see every day I fall in love with her a little more. The cheeky smile, watching her bond with her dad, her sweet voice, the way she runs, the way she cuddles and the way she calls me mummy… I can truly say that being a mum was the one thing I was meant to do on this earth. It just comes naturally, I love with no limits, and this tiny human comes before anyone and anything. When she was just hours old I knew I would give my life for hers. My mum always told me growing up, “when you become a mum you’ll understand” and I hate to admit but till you become a parent there is a lot you don’t truly understand. Mother’s day is just around the corner, whether you’re celebrating with a walk in the park or over a family lunch. It’s all about that one person who holds a family together like no other. Each and every mummy deserves to be celebrated, whether you’re celebrating being a mum or congratulating a first time mummy. It’s a chance to spoil the one who has nurtured, encouraged and moulded us into the people we are today. It’s the least we can do to show them that we appreciate everything they’ve done for us over the years. It’s not always easy shopping for women in general so I decided to put together a gift guide of presents I wouldn’t mind being spoiled with. Flowers Women love flowers, what better way to say I love you than with a bunch of carefully selected flowers. I for one love pastel flowers. I love the way it makes me feel every time I look at them. I also think they add such a nice touch to my home. LVL As a lot of you know a few months ago I was extremely luckily to become part of the bestest girl squad out there. Shout out to #LashGang. Along with wearing the badge proudly it comes with many perks to the job. The amazing team over at Nouveau sent me out a cute Mothers Day message with a treat for busy mothers like myself. LVL straightens your natural eyelashes at the root it lasts anything from six to eight weeks. The results are immediate, wake up ready to go. You can spoil your mummy for as little as £45. (Please check your local salon as prices may vary) I’m super excited about having it done on Saturday, make sure you check my Instagram and Snap Chat stories between 2.15-3.30 for before and after shots and if I'm feeling brave I’ll even do videos! I’ll also be doing a full detailed review hopefully Saturday evening. Bath Lovers. If being a mum has taught me anything is that the best cure (that and a glass bottle of prosecco!) to a bad day is soaking in a bath that smells delicious and leaves my skin feeling baby soft. Lush is my go to company when it comes to this. They have a wide variety of products from bath bombs to shower gels. To be honest my husband could buy me a ton of this stuff and I’d be over the moon. (husband because Emma Lou is far to small to buy me presents if she had a say it’d proably be a minnie mouse or mickey) Lush is a great place to start if your trying to stick to budget friendly. Make Up. Being a #BBlogger (beauty blogger) its kind of my duty passion to always want makeup. I’m the biggest sucker for high end products. Around special occasions you can bet your last penny that somewhere on my wish list theres some sort of makeup I want. Whether it’s the latest palette to a high end lipstick. After all you need something to help hide the evidence that once you become a mother you NEVER sleep a full nights sleep, even if your baby does. I’m currently lusting over, Nars All Day Lumiouns Foundation, Nars Conclear, Charlottle Tilbury Lipsticks and Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette. The Candle Lover. Its no secret I LOVE candles, my home is filled with them regardless of the season. I love going from room to room and smelling the different scents. Something about that makes me smile inside. Landon Tyler do some amazing gift sets at such affordable prices. If you have a bit more to spend I definitely recommend you check out Diptyque and Jo Malone. You can normally find them in your local John Lewis or Space NK. Jewellery. Unforgetable memories. This has got to be probably one of my favourite gifts to receive. Something about opening a little box feels me with excitement and happiness. I always find giving jewellery is such a personal heartfelt moment. From the moment you receive it to every time you wear it it’ll remind you of the person and moment. Pandora always have a mothers day collection which is perfect for everyone of all ages. Its definitely my go to company when it comes to gifts. I think I’ve pretty much covered a gift that would suit a wide variety of women. Everyone loves getting spoiled especially by a loved one. But since I’ve become a mother I can honestly say the best gift you can give your mums this mothers day is your presence. I understand that life can get in the way and being with them is not always an option, but even if you take 5 minutes of your day to just call them and thank them. Technology is our bestest friend (sometimes worst enemy) it can bring us closer to those who we love, FaceTime, Skype, Facebook. I hope you all have an amazing day. What are your plans for Sunday? xxxx

  8. I often lean towards luxury makeup and bath products for my mumma but LVL is such an ingenious idea for a prezzie! My mum often can't be bothered with a lot of makeup but loves her lashes to stand out, I'm definitely gonna treat her to a little Nouveau session for her birthday! Lovely post and photos!

  10. You've picked a lovely selection of gifts here. I'm certainly partial to a Lush bath bomb myself. I had to have a small giggle about the line "I can honestly say the best gift you can give your mums this mothers day is your presence". As my mothers' day gift this year, my husband is taking the kids away for a day and night to give me some much needed "mummy time". Each to their own, I guess!

  11. A pleasant and sweet perfume could be a special gift for Mother's day. Every year I thought something different to gift for my Mom. This year I think I will buy a perfume for my Mom from my local store named BPIB. This will be a different gift idea for my Mom. By the way, thanks for sharing this post.
