Mother's Day Gift Inspiration

Mothering Sunday - Mother's Day is this weekend (3rd April 2011) and if you haven't already bought your mum a gift I thought I would share with you my ideas...

Unless your mum has hay-fever the chances are that she will be pleased to receive a pretty bunch of flowers. My  mum adores roses and lilies so this bouquet would be perfect

Super Rose and Lily Bouquet- £40 from

I think mums would really enjoy being treated to Afternoon Tea. 

If you are looking for inspiration on which venue to choose why not read my Afternoon Tea reviews section here . Most venues are probably booked now for the actual Sunday but it will be something nice for her to look forward to.

If your budget won't stretch that far.. How about treating your mum to afternoon tea at your home? She will love the fact that she doesn't have to cook on the day and you can really personalise it. Bring out the best China and if you have a tiered cake stand it will look doubly impressive. I suggest some finger sandwiches, scones, cream and jam and some cute miniature cakes either bought in or better still home-made!

If your mum loves pampering herself and you want to treat her my favourite high street pampering ranges are either Champneys or The Sanctuary products. The ultimate pampering bath oil in my opinion is from Connock London if you really want to spoil her :-)

Alternatively, why not buy her a voucher/book a beauty treatment like a massage or facial. If you are in London I can recommend West One Beauty salon.

Perfume is another gift wonderful gift to give to your mum, I know it is quite a personal thing but I think my mum would adore some Chanel. Contained in a beautifully presented bottle, Coco Mademoiselle is a truly stunning scent and will evoke memories of you every time she wears it.

Calvin Klein's Beauty is a gorgeous, fresh scent. Available from John Lewis and other fragrance stockists.

Lastly, a lipstick always has the ability to refresh a makeup wardrobe and make you feel great. I suggest one of the new Pure Colour long lasting lipsticks from Estee Lauder. With a huge range of shades from the collection to choose from, one will be sure to suit your mum. I love the luxurious packaging and they literally glide on. Simply beautiful.

I hope you enjoyed this gift inspiration post. What will you be buying or hoping to receive this year ?

I always forget I am a mummy now too  - I wonder what I will be given?
