MOTHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE

10.3.15

So this weekend coming Sunday 15th March is Mother's Day!

Mother's are amazing, and we all would've be the people we are today without them, so I'm totally up for celebrating that!

I've decided to do a Mother's Day Gift Guide to help you find the perfect gift for your amazing Mum, whatever your budget!


Mum's are very house proud, and they love the fine, sweet and nice smelling things in life.
So this Mum's Rose Scented Yankee Candle is perfect
I think personalised gifts are always the best gifts and they add that extra sentimental value.
So what's better than a stunning rose candle with 'Mum' on it for Mother's Day?


Handmade Off-Cuts Bunting
Obviously this second gift recommendation is only going to be relevant if you're quite creative, like me!
I love being creative, making things an giving thing a new life and home.
I recently made this gorgeous floral bunting for a friend of mind with some stunning floral off-cuts. 
Bunting is really simple, quick and extremely effective - as well as adorable - to make, especially if you have a sewing machine.
What I love about bunting is if you alternate and mix and match the triangles you don't have to spend a fortune on fabric, you can get away with using off-cuts which you can pick up from Charity Shops, fancy dress shops, interior shops or eBay!
A handmade gift is always a treasured, special one.


I was recently introduced by a friend of mine to Imperial Candles.
But this isn't any normal candle! Oh no
There is a jewel worth between £10 to £2,000 in each one!
But what jewel have you got?
Your jewellery surprise could be a £155 Ring or a £10 Pair of Earrings, or it could be £2,000 Necklace!
The surprise is exciting and enjoyable in itself however, you don't just get a new piece of jewellery for your collection, but you also get an amazing scented candle of your choice!
The candles are a great size and Imperial Candles have a great range of scents.
They're just the perfect gift!
Who doesn't love jewellery surprise?



My Sterling Silver Earrings worth £35 from my Coconut Scented Imperial Candle
Oxygenetix Breatheable Foundation for Healthier Skin
I've been loving this Foundation from Oxygenetix which I feature in my Monthly Favourites.
It's amazing. Like no other foundation I've used before. Yes, it's more expensive than you usual foundation but if you have a more flexible budget this Mother's Day, this foundation is perfect for your Ma.
Mum's tend to not like experimenting with makeup and like to use something easy, with great coverage that doesn't look cakey or too young.
This foundation is breathable - not that I knew what that meant until I tried the foundation - but once you try it, it all makes sense!
It's got great coverage but with gives your skin a healthy glow and flawless look, like you're not even wearing any!
It's the perfect foundation for any age, but I really think it's perfect for Mum's and anyone looking for that perfect foundation to rely on that's easy, and simple to apply.


Everyone loves a statement and go-to Red Lippy.
This Red Lipstick by Rimmel London/Kate Moss for Comic Relief in Red Nose 01 is the perfect shade to achieve that amazing statement red lip.
Mum's love something easy and simple to vamp up their look for a night out, and I think this affordable lipstick is perfect!
It's Limited Edition for Comic Relief and at least £1.60 from each purchase goes to Comic Relief, so it's always nice to get someone a gift, that can help someone else.



Like I said, I think personalised gifts are the best gifts!
So what's better than a personalised gift you'll use daily, Personalised Towels!
I bought these towels fro my boyfriend and I as a spontaneous gift.
But I think they're perfect for anyone, especially someone who's difficult to buy for, because everyone needs towels!



You might of seen my post from February Favourites Posts about my New Venture Silhouette where I create Personalised Sign Giftware, an have recently launched a Bag Collection.
With designs from handbags to holdalls, suit carriers and luggage theirs a bag for everyone.
I've been using my Fiona Bag as my every day bag recently and although she looked small, I probably should've called her Mary, and just like a Mary Poppin's bag she seem to never ends inside. 
My main aim for my Bag Collection was to make them Fashionable but Affordable, with the cool, refreshing Nubuck Style Finish and Prices starting from £14.99 to £35.00 for an extra large luggage bag I think I've definitely achieved it.
Check out my Bag Collection and Silhouette Sign Design on Facebook here as well as my Silhouette Sign Blog Post and Silhouette Bag Post too.

They're great gift for you, Mum or Nan with the range of styles, one for everyone




I recently got this amazing balm from Australian Body Care
It's a multi purpose balm is for softening and soothing dry, chapped skin, lips, cuticles and nails.
It's amazing for chapped or sore lips and you get so much in the pot, as you only need a little bit when applying.
Mum's love skincare and perfecting and protecting their skin and a multi purpose balm like this is the perfect gift as it can be used in so many ways for so many things.



Who doesn't love a new fragrance, especially as a gift!
This fragrance from Signature Fragrances symbolises everything sweet & edible. Lurre reveals itself as a sweet yet sophisticated scent, exuding distinct notes like strawberry and vanilla, against a backdrop of amber and golden musk accents, which compliments the fragrances’ depth and femininity.
This is my favourite fragrance from Signature Fragrance, but they have so many more!



You might be aware of my new Venture, Silhouette.
At #SilhouetteSigns we create the perfect personalised gift for you, your loved one, your family, your best friend, babies, married friends, engaged friends, new born congratulations and even Pets too! 
We personalise our Sign Designs with namesdatessayingsquotes and not forgetting for instance our family designs where we create your family in Silhouette's Sign Design perfection, that perfect unique print to hang in your house and keep forever, and why not include your beloved pets too!
I think our Family Print is the perfect gift design for your Mum this Mother's Day, to hang proud in your Ma's house.
(However, the last available day for ordering before Mother's Day is Wednesday 11th March, so order quick!)




I hope you and your amazing Mum have a lovely Mother's Day!
