Today I am continuing with my Mother's Day gift ideas, which I hope you enjoy and feel make it a little easier to pick that special gift for Mum. If you've missed the previous parts, you can see Part One, and Part Two

It may be on the brink of Winter here in Australia, but who doesn't want to hang onto the feeling of summer for a tad longer. And with this Summer candle from Sydney Fragrance she can do just that.

The Sydney Fragrance candles have been hand made in Australia with the aim to represents the many facets of Sydney style, and this particular Summer candle has been inspired by Sydney's beachside summer with a mojito with a twist of lemon in the hand, vanilla scented in the house, and a bouquet of fresh cut orchids in a vase. This premium and luxury candle is made in a high quality glass with a black timber lid, and with the highest quality soy-blended wax and with the best of fragrances including among others lime, pineapple, lemongrass, apple, white jasmine, mush and vanilla. The soy contents means that the candle will burn cleaner and better, and not cover your walls (and even worse, your insides!!), with black smoke, so its much better and healthier for you too.

The huge candle, not only looks stunning, it will instantly fill your home with the most gorgeous fresh floral and zesty scent that will take you right back to summer, even on a cold winter's night, and burn for a massive 80 hours.

Another suggestion would be some premium skincare from Gensen Japan, such as the Sun Age Control Day & Night Repair Serum, and the Sun Age Control Day & Night Revitalising Moisturiser.

These Japanese products are made with Onsen water from Japanese Hot Spring Waters which originate deep in the volanic earth, as these waters are rich in minerals and iodine, which have skin healing, anti-inflammatory, anti-infection, restoring, and rejuvenating properties. As well as the products contain Plat Ceria, which is a non-greasy base that helps protect the skin from UV rays. The Gensen Japan Sun Age Control Day & Night Repair Serum aims to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to help hydrate, while protect the skin, as well as it helps restore and rejuvenate the skin at night, to help prevent and reverse skin ageing for a combined more luminous and younger looking skin, promising to also smooth fine lines, repair past sun damage, regenerates ageing skin, accelerate skin renewal, which providing hydration to the skin. This serum is so light and gorgeous that it absorbs immediately into the skin, and in spite of its intense moisture, it leaves the skin soft and smooth and silky soft.

The Gensen Japan Sun Age Control Day & Night Revitalising Moisturiser, is a very light, almost gel-like consistency, which absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it soft and smooth, and with a velvety matte finish. It is the perfect moisturiser to use under my makeup, making it say looking nicer all day. It helps lock in moisture into the skin, repair the skin and promote skin renewal, and all while giving the skin a soft and healthy glow. Combined these two products are perfect for anyone concerned with fighting the signs of ageing, and because the products are so gentle they are also suitable for sensitive skin, and their light and non-greasiness makes them perfect for greasier skin types too.

What about spoiling her to this gorgeous Essential Gems Gift Pack from Dr LeWinn's, which contains a Sensitive Cleansing Milk and Hand & Nail Cream.

The Sensitive Cleansing Milk is a mild cleansing lotion is designed for sensitive skin, and contains among others sweet almond protein to regenerate and moisturise the skin, as well as aloe and orchid extract and white tea to soothe and soften the skin, all while being free from common skin irritants such as parabens and sulphates. The cleansing milk comes in a stunning white pump bottle and it has the most divine floral scent. And it quickly and easily removes all traces of makeup, and leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth.

The Hand and Nail Cream is a long time favourite of mine as it is truly incredible. It contains among others aloe, and multi vitamins including A, B and E and it helps add intense moisture and nourishment to the hands, and leave them with protected from damage by creating an invisible protection layer on the skin. The rich cream absorbs quickly and easily into the hands and leaves them so much softer and smoother, and younger looking too, and continued use, will also help improve the condition of nails and cuticles leaving them looking so much healthier too.

The products come packaged in the most gorgeous and so useful silver cosmetics bag, and it is such great value too as you literally get the hand cream and cosmetics bag for free!

Well, if you're considering giving her a gift, then she must be a mum - and hence having undergone a pregnancy and probably breastfeeding, would probably mean that her boobs are not as perky as they once were - so what about bust lift in a tube - by giving her a tube of Alpha Keri Body Slimfit Bust Lift and Firm Cream. Used twice a day, this cream promises to help improve breast filling and shaping and create lifting and push-up effect by up to 5mm in 4 weeks. The cream contains among others African “Tree of Life” which help tighten the skin and improve shape, as well as marine collagen lipid-filler microsphere technology that helps plump up the breast. The cream has a gorgeous fragrance, and it is easy to get into the habit of massaging it into the breast and décolleté, and after using for a few weeks, I have to admit that it can be difficult to say exactly to what extent it has actually lifted my breasts which have been through two pregnancies and two rounds of breastfeeding - however, I have definitely noticed that the my skin is not only looking softer and smoother, and more plumb too, but small lines also appear to have mininised somewhat, as well as the skin in general looks more youthful and glowing. So definitely worth a try, I know I’ll be using this as a part of my body skincare regimen from now on.

If she's into makeup, then why not gift her one of Real Techniques's Bold Metals Collection's newest products, the Miracle Diamond Sponge. This new makeup sponge is designed to make achieving a flawless look even easier. Unlike a beauty blender sponge, this one, as the name suggests, is shaped like a sponge, and has a unique white and grey marble swirly design.

With this Miracle Diamond Sponge you can use the larger flat sides to apply makeup and buff and blend larger areas of the face, and the smaller sides for better and more precise contouring on areas such as eyes, mouth and brows. The pointed tip is great to use for covering small imperfection such as blemishes, or in the corners of the eyes. As with any other makeup sponge, it can used dry for a full coverage, or damp for a more dewy look. The new shape does take a little getting used to, but it is such a great tool, and I personally really like how good it is at working on smaller areas thanks to the pointy tip.

If you really want to spoil her, then this stunning Volante Silver Watch from Klasse 14 is sure to make her happy. The beautiful watch has a 36mm stainless steel face, with, and features an applied index dial, with a Quartz analog movement - and with its sleek silver mesh band it is simple and simply stunning - like a piece of classic and timeless jewellery, that will never go out of fashion.

This watch is the essence of style and quality, and will look incredible regardless if she is wearing casual clothes or dressed up to go out.
