Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, just over a month away, on the 12th May. For some that may still seem to be a long way away, but as my Mum lives in Europe, and I need to allow at least two to three weeks to post something to her, it that means that I have even less time to get the perfect present arranged. And that’s when I thought, that maybe I’m not the only one with a Mum living on the other side of the world who needs to start shopping a little earlier, and hence why I thought it would be a good idea to start early with a couple of Mother’s Day Gift Ideas.

I love Estee Lauder products, so the Mother’s Day Makeup Set looks just amazing to me, and may just have to go on my own wish list!! Actually, I would be so happy receiving any of these gifts – I mean, how good does the Crabtree & Evelyn Collectable Hand Care Tin look? And what about the Jane Iredale gift box, and not to mention OPI Top Ten Red Nail polishes.. And I absolutely love the 100% Natural Australia Jojoba, so that starter pack sounds like such an amazing pack. And what about the Glasshouse candle how gorgeous does that sound?

What do you think of these gift ideas? Anything you will be adding to your wish list? Or you think will be the perfect gift for your mum?



  1. Thanks for this post :) Lots of good ideas. I absolutely adore the Crabtree & Evelyn tin and want it for myself....hahaha. Think mum would love it too! When I am sending things overseas I often send scarves as gifts as they are not too heavy and make lovely gifts.

    1. Im the same, I also try to find things that are not too heavy to send, and something that cant break on the way!

  2. Great post. Thanks for sharing.

    If you get a sec, please check out my latest post 'Springtime Coral'.

  3. The hand care tin looks so gorgeous!! And the glasshouse candles smell the best x

    1. Yeah, the tin is gorgeous isnt it, and I just love their hand creams! But I can also find a home for a Glasshouse candle in our house any day ;-)

  4. Such a great range of products! Great ideas :)

    I always get Mum vouchers because she loves to be pampered but never gets enough time. A voucher makes her take the time :)


    1. Thanks heaps. A voucher is a good idea too though, and I like that it forces her to take the time out for some pampering.
