Mother’s Day Gift ideas - Part 2

How time flies – and now there is less than a week until Mother’s day. With my Mum living in Europe, I got her present arranged and posted to her quite a while ago, and I also know that it has arrived there safely – but told her that cannot open it until the 12th May!!

What about you, have you bought your present for your Mum?

I already did a post with some Mother’s Day Gift ideas a few weeks ago (if you’ve missed it, you can see it here), and well, I thought that I’d do another post, as there are simply so many great gift sets out in connection with Mother’s Day, that I would love to receive myself. I’m not due to give birth until June, so looks like I’ll be missing out this year, although I keep telling my husband that I’m mum to our two Labradors, so surely that counts too... ;-)

Anyway, here goes..
*Clarins Eau Dynamisante Treatment Fragrance

This is such an iconic fragrance – and the first ever treatment fragrance to combine fragrance with skincare benefits. The delicate fragrance not only smells amazing, it also helps promote a feeling of freshness, vitality and well-being, all while It firms, tones and revitalises surface skin, leaving it moisturised and soft.
