Hello all, the time has come to worship the number one woman in our lives! Yep, I'm talking about our mama's and you know their special day is coming up! If your mothers are anything like mine, you'll ask the question "What would you like for Mothers Day?" and be greeted with a "Oh I'm happy with just a card..." Which she and you will both know is rubbish! I was fortunate this year in that she actually mentioned some perfume she fancied trying and so I'm sorted. It did get me thinking about the unfortunate souls that will be left clueless when shopping for the perfect gift. Fear not wary shoppers, this is the ultimate gift guide for the perfect cliche' gift.
Bouquet of flowers
Every woman loves a bouquet of flowers. I got sent some from work following a robbery and honestly, they were so beautiful I forgot the whole thing. If all you get is a card and a big fat lot of flowers, she'll be one happy lady. Just make sure that she's not a hayfever sufferer!
I know that Pandora bracelets are hugely popular and I think they make a wonderful gift! Plus, you give yourself future gift ideas in the form of charms. Other jewellery would go down a treat as well so keep your eyes peeled to see what sort of necklaces etc she wears.
As I mentioned earlier, Pandora charms make the perfect gift and, Pandora have even made it easier for you by designing beautiful Mothers Day charms such as this one. Perfect for if she already owns a bracelet. Other brands such as Chamila also offer beautiful charms.
The number one gift in my opinion is perfume. Even if I don't feel my makeup has gone right or my outfit isn't working, a spritz of perfume is enough to make me feel 100%. My mom is no different and so I've invested in a bottle of her favourite perfume. If you don't know your mom's favourite perfume, or she's already got a dozen bottles, get her a new one to try. I've not come across anyone who dislikes the Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume and so this may be a safe choice to try.
Purses are the sort of item that I hate paying for. Not saying I steal but I always find spending money on something to put your money in is a bit ridiculous. I'd rather have more money. that being said, they do serve a purpose and so being bought a purse is the perfect gift. Try finding one that matches her everyday handbag to show you've really done your research! This one is £15 from New Look here.
Thinking about purses got my noggin really working. What woman doesn't appreciate a nice bag? You can get some really lovely bags for reasonable prices too, like this one from new look for £25 here so you know you can get a nice one for your budget.
My mom, like me, is a serious tea drinker. Like big time. So it makes sense that a mug with lovely words included is the perfect gift. Plus, they're usually super cheap if your mom has set you a money limit. This one is £10 from Marks and Spencer here.
Other great gifts may not be gifts at all. It may be that the best present is a pamper day, where you wait on her hand on foot. Or perhaps taking her out for a meal or to the cinemas. At the end of the day, Mother's Day is all about showing that you care and appreciate all she's done for you. That's all from me my loves, go tell your mothers you love them!
