It’s nearly Mother’s Day and if you’re anything like me you’ve probably left finding that perfect gift right until the last minute! It has to be said that when it comes to buying presents for my mum I’m usually really organised. This year it’s not the case so I’ve been searching high and low online and have come up with this Mother’s Day gift guide. Let’s find out which companies can offer us last minute delivery and what type of presents might best suit our mums….
New Beauty Releases
Why not impress your mum with some newly released make-up, perfume or bath, body and face oils? One product that really caught my eye was the latest mascara by YSL, The Shock. It’s available in black, electric blue and burgundy, so there’s plenty of shades to choose from that could potentially suit your mum. If it’s perfume you’re after, Guerlain have just released Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum, which is inspired by Angelina Jolie. Or, perhaps your mum is always talking about keeping her skin looking youthful? Then the Elemis Pro-Definition Facial Oil or The White Company Super Serum could be the perfect gift from you. Of course, you don’t have to go for something that’s only just been released. Why not give mum something a bit more classic, like the Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Mind Bath & Shower Oil. If your mum is someone that likes to relax and de-stress, then you might like my next idea.
You could treat your mum to a spa day or weekend away. Last year I took my mum for an overnight stay at Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa and she absolutely loved it. There’s some amazing deals at Boots such as the Elemis Escape Spa Day for Two and the Reviving Spa Day which is available at locations all across the UK. If a spa isn’t your mum’s thing, then maybe she would prefer to go for afternoon tea? Last Minute have loads of afternoon tea experiences available (you can check them out here), such as Afternoon Tea for Two at The Ritz and Cream Tea for Two at Harrods. While we’re on the subject of food and drink, you might want to get your mum something she can consume at home?
Food & Drink
Scanning the internet for Mother’s Day gifts led me to some lovely food and drink ideas. Many of which I wouldn’t mind myself! What a shame I’m not a mum. The best item I came across was some Bottega Rose Prosecco. I mean, rose and prosecco. Can you really go wrong? Then there’s these Hotel Chocolate Pink Champagne Truffles, and if you’re looking for something non-alcoholic then maybe Harrods Raspberry Hot Chocolate could be the one? What about if your mum’s not a fan of presents that you consume? Then go for something a little bit more unique….
Candles & Accessories
What about The happiness Planner? This is something a little bit different and after all, who doesn’t want to plan to be happy? Another fab gift that would make any rose gold loving mum happy is these Martini Glasses by Tom Dixon. Oh my goodness, how gorgeous are they? While we’re on the subject of gold I also found this stunning Olivia Burton Watch. I can’t imagine anyone being unhappy with that. The last two items on my list are a Mini Diptyque Baies Candle (miniature things are always good!) and if you’re feeling flush, the Chloe Marcie Bag. That satchel is gorgeous and right on trend being in the shade blush nude. On a side note, if your mum’s a fan of bags but you can’t afford the real thing, then be sure to check out these designer hand bag dupes!
Finally, I don’t suppose it would be about Mother’s Day if I didn’t mention flowers. I’m pretty sure most mums would be chuffed to bits if they received a gorgeous bouquet. I know buying flowers isn’t the most original idea out there, but it’s a fail safe option if it’s the kind of thing your mum likes. I’ve had a little look, and there are still many last minute options for flowers around. The best one is probably with John Lewis, as you can order as late as 10pm on Friday night. Anyway, I’ve listed all the delivery options below.

Here’s to all the mum’s out there, whether they are still with us or not. I hope you all have a lovely Mother’s Day.
Whatever you do, don’t forget to appreciate your mum all year round!
This post is dedicated to Ollie’s mum as sadly she is no longer here.
