The other day I started my series of gift ideas for Mother's Day, if you missed the first part, you see it here. Anyway, here's the second part with even more suggestions within electrics, beauty and lifestyle products, so there something for every budget and taste… 

She's sure to fall head of heels over this super cool and super girlie bright Oral-B PRO 500 Electric Toothbrush Pink Edition. The Oral-B PRO 500 electric toothbrush has been designed so it is on a slight angle for a better clean of each individual tooth. It has a 3D movement cleaning system that oscillates 7,600 times per minute and pulsates 20,000 times per minute, while it also rotates to break up and remove more plaque, and combined with the round CrossAction toothbrush head, which is inspired by professional cleaning tools, it delivers a clean that is so much better than using a regular manual toothbrush, as it helps lift and clean away more dental plaque as the round brush surrounds each tooth and deep cleanses between the teeth too. In fact, it promises to remove up to 100% more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush.

The toothbrush has a handy two-minute timer which buzzes every seconds so you know when it is time to move onto the next quadrant of your teeth, to ensure that all get a good clean. It also has a very long battery life, lasting up to 7 days on a full charge. It is super light in the hand, and so easy to use, and your teeth feel so clean after each use. It also comes with a charging station, and comes with a 2 year warranty.

Or perhaps you’d like to gift her something a little more intimate, such as these gorgeous bamboo Sensual Boy Leg knickers from Modibodi. They are incredibly soft thanks to the natural fibres, and they not only look very stylish and glamourous, they are so incredibly comfortable to wear that you actually almost forget you've got them on. But what's more, is that they are also very high-tech that they actually double as absorbent underwear too as they feature a 3mm inbuilt panty liner, that offers you better protection than any pair of regular undies and disposable sanitary products, so they help protect you from light bladder leakage, periods etc. this inbuilt panty liner uses moisture-wicking technology to draw sweat and discharge away from the skin, while being leak proof, antibacterial, breathable and stain resistant. And you simply wash them like any other underwear. So how good is that, stylish and comfortable underwear that makes you feel confident and give you peace of mind from leaks, periods, sweat and odour, while making you feel great about yourself too.

Want to give her something that's so practical that she'll absolutely love, then you cannot go past this Hair Towel Wrap from Freestyle. The Hair Towel Wrap, is made from super absorbent microfibre, that helps dry the hair so much faster, and with my very long and thick hair, I can really notice a difference. I also love that you can wrap your hair in the towel and safely secure it with the button - something I really love. I am so fed up trying to wrap my wet hair up in a normal towel while I do my makeup, as it always only stays put for a few moments, and I then end up giving up, and my hair is still dripping wet and subsequent drying takes so much longer. So this towel wrap is really a godsend. And you can simply pop it in the washing machine with the rest of your towels and use again and again. Seriously such a time-saver, and the lavender-pink shade is so gorgeous too. It is available in two sizes, a small for those with shorter hair styles, and large, if you like me have got a lot of hair!

Or what about a Freestyle Detangler Brush, which has flexible bristles that makes it so easy to comb out and detangle your hair whether it is wet or dry, as it glides through the hair smoothly and gently without pulling or dragging the hair, thanks to the epoxy tips, which also helps smooth down the hair and prevent frizz and flyaways. This hairbrush is super lightweight, and has an ergonomic handle too, so it is easy to hold, and it is also heat resistant so you can use it when heat styling it. And because it is so lightweight it is also perfect to pop into your handbag as it wont weigh it down either.

Another suggestion would be some body pampering products from Natural Instinct such as the Uplifting Body Wash with Lemon Grass and Ginko, and the Silky Hydrating Body Lotion with Triple Nourishing Complex. These products from Natural Instinct are not only made in Australia, but they are also made from natural plant ingredients and free from all the chemical nasties including petrochemicals, PEGs, mineral oils, sulphates, silicones, parabens, PABA, and artificial fragrances and colours, as well as they of course have not been tested on animals.

The Natural Instinct Uplifting Body Wash with Lemongrass and Ginseng is an invigorating shower gel. It has added ginko to help regenerate the skin and stimulate circulation breaking down lipids commonly associated with cellulite, while the Vitamin C helps smooth and even the skin tone with antioxidant properties leaving skin feeling soft, supple & youthful, and finally energising lemon grass which stimulates and helps tone the skin leaving it feeling smooth & revitalised. It is so gentle on the skin, leaving it clean without drying out the skin or making it itchy, and it has the most beautiful fresh and zesty scent thanks to the ginseng and the lemon grass, and it is hence the perfect soap to use in the morning when you need a bit of a kick start, and I love that this scent lingers in my bathroom after use, making it smell like a spa!

Pair that with the Natural Instinct Silky Hydrating Body Lotion which contains a triple nourishing complex boosted by among others sweet almond, rosehip and jojoba oils to add intense moisture and nourishment to the skin, leaving it so silky soft and supple. But the ingredients natural also have other purposes, and so the sweet almond oil also helps improve the skin's barrier function, the rosehip oil rich in fatty acids and vitamin c helps heal and has anti-ageing properties, while the jojoba oil has moisturising and protecting properties. In addition it also contains other nourishing ingredients including avocado oil and mango seed butter, as well as lavender oil and chamomile flower extract, which is likely contributing to its slightly floral scent. This body lotion leaves the skin silky soft and so smooth, and is perfect to combat dry winter skin too.

Or what about spoiling her to a few perfume such as the newly launched Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria Eau de Toilette. This perfume is a new version of the Euphoria scent which was launched some years ago. The Deep Euphoria contains among others cascalone, mandarin leaf and white pepper in the top notes, black rose, geranium and jasmine sambac in the middle notes, and in the base notes it has musk, pachouli and woody notes

Deep Euphoria is a fruity rose scent that dries down to a warm floral and very feminine scent. I am not a huge fan of rose scents on their own, finding them somewhat 'old-woman'ish", but that is far from the case with Deep Euphoria.

I find it such a gorgeous scent, as it is neither too spicy, or too sweet, but a beautiful sophisticated scent with just the rose scent lingering. It is 'just' an EDT, but still, I find that it lasts well on the skin, as if I put it on in the morning, I can still detect it at the end of the day, although if I do go out at night again, I do find that a refreshing top-up squirt is nice. It comes sin the most stunning deep dark pinky-purple bottle, which apart from the shade is like the original one, but although it was launched years ago, it is as modern and stunning now as it was then. For me Deep Euphoria is sure to be a autumn and winter favourite.

Regardless of what you decide to gift her, don't forget to include a handwritten personal note, such as in one of the gorgeous Hallmark's Signature Collection Cards, which she'll be sure to love and treasure.
