Whether it’s breakfast in bed or a fresh bunch of flowers, that handbag she’s always wanted or the skincare she’s been eyeing up, Mother’s Day is soon approaching, (Sunday 6th March) and it’s time to spoil her! Ocean Loans wanted to see how I would treat my mum!
A fresh bouquet of flowers will never fail to put a smile on her face. Flowers aren’t something you buy for yourself usually so subtly ask which her favourites are and gift her a bunch.
Cosy or chic, pyjamas are an instant comfort. These dusty pink silky options are from La Redoute, they feel very luxurious.
Whether she lights them while in the bath or wants to fragrance the house, Yankee Candles make a lovely present. They have so many different scents and different sizes to suit your budget. I picked Summer Scoop, Cherry Lemonade and Champaca Blossom, all of which have beautiful light and summery scents.
My mum loves Ralph Lauren Romance, it’s very simplistic with notes of Lotus Flower, White Violet and Camomile. Another classic is Chloe’s signature fragrance, I always get compliments when wearing it. It’s soft and non-offensive making it a good choice if you aren’t sure which perfume she likes.
Depending on your budget, No7, Clinique and Elizabeth Arden have amazing products for mature skin. My mum has repurchased No7 for years, the Protect and Perfect range is rated highly and has won several awards. Clinique’s Repairwear Laser Focus has been in my mum’s stash for a while and she’s running low, more expensive skincare can make a lovely treat. If you are looking for a ‘suits all’ style skincare products, I would opt for the Elizabeth Arden’s latest release, 8 Hour Miracle Oil*. It can be used on your skin, hair and body.
Give her some time to unwind with some relaxing products for the bath. I particularly love the Clarins Bath and Shower Concentrate, a little goes a long way and it has a heavenly spa-like scent.
As I mentioned in my Luxury Lipstick post, there is that small sense of pride when you pull out a luxury lipstick from your handbag. Sleek packaging, embossing and high-quality formula make it a lovely gift to give. My recommendations would be Charlotte Tilbury, Chanel and Tom Ford.
Of course, you don’t need an excuse to say thank you to your mum. These gifts could be given to anyone special in your life… or treat yourself to!
