A Mother's Day Gift Guide

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

With Mother's Day just a few weeks away I've pulled together a gift guide featuring some fabulous brands, thoughtful gifts and a few things you may not have thought of. As I mentioned in my post What Mum Really Wants // Boots UK, Mother's Day can be so much more than just chocolate and personalised Mum gifts so take a little inspiration and let me know what you think. 

I am sure you're going to love it. There's something for every budget - I'm excited and I hope you are too

Let's get stuck in...


Aurum is an Icelandic eco-friendly jewellery brand that creates beautiful pieces made from recycled 925 sterling silver and recycled gold. Everything is made in Iceland and the packaging is also sustainably produced from the leaves of the Mulberry Tree. 

The Bond Ring is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship taking inspiration from the bonds between people, intimacy and love making it a really special piece for Mother's Day. The ring comes in a range of sizes with more to choose from on their website. 

I really love the selection of necklaces, there are just so many gorgeous pieces. 



Astonish (from £1.19)
Much loved cleaning brand Astonish is so much more than toilet cleaner - who knew?! I didn't but a personal care delivery of shower gel, hand washes and bath soak changed that. Prices start from just £1.19 so they're perfect if you're creating a hamper for someone you love. 

There's a range of scents available including Pink Paradise, Golden Glow and Green Earth.


I adore Floral Street and I've been having so much fun exploring the brand this year so I just had to include the wonderful Sunflower Pop within this Mother's Day guide. The one of a kind collaboration sees Floral Street partner with the Van Gogh Museum to create a timeless fragrance with bursts of citrus, fruit and joy. 

The bottle features yellow-tipped sunflowers from the brush of Van Gogh which has inspired the blend of fresh mandarin, bursts of sustainably sourced Calabrian bergamot, vegan honey accord, and a pop of bellini accord. 

It'll be such a staple fragrance this spring - just look at that bottle! 



Looking for a candle with a twist? You need Boujee Bougie candles in your life - they're gonna make such an excellent gift. The debut collection features five scented candles with totally unique scents, available in two sizes. The luxury blend of wax is 100% natural and is composed in their in-house perfumer and compounded in Grasse, France.

Succulent is their tribute to the noble botanicals that bring beauty and joy to our homes, without any of the hassles of actually growing anything. With notes of cactus and tomato leaf, Succulent is verdant and fresh, evoking a glass conservatory overflowing with lush tendrils. It's like nothing I've ever smelt before - absolutely incredible! 



I use a lot of L'Occitane within all parts of my beauty and skincare routine so there were always going to be some staples included. First up, is the limited edition Herbae par L'Occitane Clary Sage Eau de Toilette (£55.00) - a gorgeous new take on a much-loved original. The lightly floral fragrance features top notes of sparkling bitter orange and Vert de Bergamot paired with red thyme and herbaceous clary sage, it's really quite special. 

Next up, hand creams! I'm never without L'Occitane hand cream and they make such great gifts. The much-loved Shea Butter Hand Cream (£21.50) is my fail-safe, you just can't fault a classic but if you did want a twist, the Rose Hand Cream (£21.50) is just as lovely. They soak into the skin and leave hands feeling oh so soft. 



My favourite brand for everyday accessories, Elizabeth Scarlett is my go-to for gifting. I have pouches, eye masks and pyjamas from the brand and the limited edition Crane Maxi Pouch is my latest addition. The pouch can be used for everything from tablets to baby essentials, meaning life can be that little bit more organised. It's perfectly sized to use for travelling or for organising your bag and features a small internal pocket to keep your smaller items safe.

This particular design features two elegant cranes, swooping across the midnight sky in a rich quilted velvet base with delicately stitched stars - it's incredibly beautiful. So perfect for Mother's Day.



Going back to skincare, Neom is a wonderful wellbeing brand that just nails relaxation for home and body. Renowned for its much-loved Wellbeing Pod, Neom is one of the best brands to turn to when it comes to gifting - birthdays, Mother's Day and more. The Great Day Hand & Body Wash (£40.00) is a great little set featuring two 300ml pump action bottles loaded with super-natural ingredients and pure essential oils to help boost your wellbeing. 

The Great Day Body Scrub (£38.00) is a fab addition to the range - I love using this in the mornings as it really invigorates my skin. It combines deep nourishment with rich exfoliation with an uplifting blend of essentials oils. There's even a body butter available within the range - next on my to-buy list. 



New in from Nourish London - give the gift of sleep this Mother's Day, something I would be very grateful for. The set features three products to enable the body and mind to relax making it perfect for anyone with a busy life or stressful job, who dreams of sleep or just some restful calm and comes ready to give in a recyclable card box.

Inside the set, you'll find the Probiotic Multi-Mineral Repair Mask, Sleepy Pillow Mist and the Relax Hydrating Peptide Serum. 



Céla, a Candian skincare brand is known for its natural, effective products suitable for home and spa. Originally created for the Hammam Spa, it was soon recognised how much the products were desired at home too which means we can now get our hands on them! Designed to calm, protect and soothe the skin - the Céla Complex is a blend of six Canadian botanical extracts - Blueberry, Elderberry, Evening Primrose, Juniper Berry, Rosemary and Lavender. Combined, these potent extracts reveal the skin's natural radiance while protecting it from the ravages of environmental factors and supporting its health at the cellular level.

Choose from products such as the Glacier Clay Cleanser that helps to cleanse the skin, remove dead skin cells helping to reveal a glowing complexion or Creme Rose which is a velvety soft lotion for skin that hydrates and softens. Each product is beautifully designed and packaged making them perfect for beauty hampers and gifting. 



If you do want somewhere a little different to order flowers and gifts from then Floward is the perfect destination. With 100s of products to choose from, you will find a thoughtful gift that will convey your feelings perfectly. 

From DIY Boxes and hydrangeas to the most stunning hand-picked bunches and roses galore, you'll find the perfect bunch for your loved one in no time at all. All the flowers arrive in an upright box meaning your flowers won't get squashed in transit. 

I can't get over how beautiful the bunch is I have in the images below.
