Mothers Day Treats | Last Minute Gift Ideas

Hi guys! This would of been up a couple days ago but life kind of got held up by snow and freezing rain, which caused some problems where we live in the South West, to say the least. So, with an important day approaching, I have a few last minute Mothers day treat ideas, to gift a fab mum/relative/guardian.

Thankfully for a change, we can actually afford to take my Mum out for Sunday lunch this year, but I will be gifting her something too, (can’t share obviously as she may read this!). So, here are a few ideas to get for your mum, or anyone you are close to who cares for you, to show appreciation on Mothers’ Day, 11th March.

 

Scentered Ultimate Survival Kit – £50

Help get her ‘scentered’, with this awesome kit from British natural aromatherapy brand, Scentered.

A gorgeous set comprising of a pretty cotton travel bag, along with all the full size range of balms : Escape, Stress Less, Sleep Well, Focus, Love. These innovative, mood changing balms are a convenient way of aromatherapy inhalation, worth trying. Each one is designed to help Stop, Inhale, and Reset a mood, enjoying the benefits of aromatherapy whenever or wherever.

Being solid, they can be used on the go, with no spillages in pockets or bags, and the fragrance blends really are beautiful! Myself and my mum have used these balms for the last few years, so I can recommend them.

The Ultimate Survival Kit makes an gorgeous gift for any mum/loved female, helping her to stay calm, centred and boosted, with aromatherapy treats that will help her perform at her best, whatever pops up in life.

 

Crabtree & Evelyn fragrant pamper treats…

Following the scent trail, these two products from British brand Crabtree & Evelyn, also make beautiful gifts for mum (or special caring female in your life), to pamper herself and enjoy. Fragrance allows our brains to shift a gear when it comes to mood, wether it be calming or uplifting, or even both. So, to make her feel special and enjoy some ‘me time’, these should just help to improve her day.

Wonderlust Bedroom Candle – £42 for 200gm

This new gorgeous candle belongs in the bedroom. With a balance of feminine and masculine, Yin and Yang, its blend creates dreamy layers of scent that calm and soothe. The blend consists of feminine powdery notes of Violet and Geranium, plus hints of Iris, Cinnamon leaf, along with notes of Elemi, Pink Pepper, Cedarwood and smooth Tobacco.

In a white frosted glass jar, this candle looks clean and serene enough to sit with any bedroom decor. Providing up to 40 hours burn time, mum will experience layers of relaxing fragrance with this lovely candle.

La Source Refreshing Body Mist – £16 for 120ml

This body mist is rich in antioxidant green seaweed extract, plus an amino acid blend to help condition skin, leaving it revitalised and also softened. If your mum loves oceanic and subtle fragrances, she will love this. I am definitely a fan, as it is really suitable as a fresh scent for spring and summer. Containing botanical notes with zesty citruses and green herbaceous, it is also mixed with a hint of musk. This is a subtle body fragrance mist, not overpowering, simply fresh and easy.

Fragrance : Crisp and clean with refreshing aquatic and musk notes, reminiscent of gentle shoreline breezes.

 

Or, if she has enough fragrances already…why not treat her to a magical tipple!

Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur  – £39.99 for 50cl

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians, this special, sparkly gin liqueur is 40% alcohol and distilled in the UK. A fab treat for Gin lovers, this has a great flavour with a little added kick…(maybe from those poor crying unicorns). If mum loves gin and all things Unicorn, she will love this as a gift.

“A mythical spirit made from the tears of humanely raised Unicorns, this gin liqueur contains real Unicorn tears. Created by Firebox in a secret location, using our free range Unicorn herd and closely-guarded extraction process (patent pending).”   Firebox

This at first, looks like any ordinary gin, but keep scrolling to be cast under its spell…

To give Unicorn tears their unique taste, we humanely force-feed these beautiful beasts entire wheelbarrows of citrus fruit, oranges, juniper berries, bunches of coriander, and sticks of liquorice. ”  Firebox

Simply swirl the bottle to awaken the prettiest of sparkling ‘unicorn tears’, and become magically mesmerised before you pour! This is definitely a party/celebratory drink providing real colour and sparkly in the glass, but also a fantastic tasting gin. Cheers!

I hope one of these few last minute gift ideas might help you out for Mothers Day. Whatever you do on the 11th March, and whoever you celebrate with…have a wonderful day!
