MOTHERS DAY GIFT GUIDE | 2021

 It’s a week until Mother’s Day and I can’t quite believe we are in March already, the months are just flying by!.


I’ve put together a lovely little gift guide for anyone that is looking for some gift inspiration this Mother’s Day, there is definitely something in here for everyone this year :)

Gin - do I need to say anymore , I love gin and the Crane’s cranberry gin is absolutely delicious and award  winning!., which doesn’t surprise me .This one is 70CL and retails at £32.00.Perfect with lemonade, some ice and some fresh cranberries - delicious.



Another favourite is the mermaid gin from Isle Of Wight Distillery, it’s been a household staple for years. The bottles are absolutely gorgeous and I actually recycle mine and keep them for flower vases :)

They have got these lovely miniatures gift set which I think would be a lovely gift to have this Mother’s Day , and it retails at £16.50. 


Jewellery is always a hit for Mother’s Day isn’t it , and I’ve got the perfect bracelet  from El Camino.

The El Camino travel bracelet captures all your travel memories as you go with their gorgeous charms and beads.

Travelling is definitely something I have missed this past year and I can’t wait to add to my bracelet all the new adventures we will be taking soon :)


Sharpie and bear have just released their Mother’s Day earrings range and they are so pretty. These bird studs are stunning and are rose gold , which is my favourite :)

The stud settings are lead and nickel free and are stainless steel.These retail at £8.00, which is an absolute bargain.  



Tea and biscuits in bed on Mother’s Day , yes please. This little teapot gift set tin is full with delicious biscuits and an array of different flavoured tea bags.

Retails at £18.00


Hair care is self care , and we all love a bit of self care , especially hair. I know mine definitely needs the hair salon , but why not have a self care evening with a selection of goodies from V05

These would make a lovely hamper for Mother’s Day , and the range has something for all hair types, whether it’s curly or needs a bit of volume. I love the hot oils and have used them for years .


Add to that hamper some moisturiser for the face and body and also a lip balm from Dragonfly CBD and make the ultimate Mother’s Day hamper . 

The range is luxurious and feels amazing on the skin , and contains different strengths of  CBD oil which is known for its health benefits.Retail from £4.95 and have a selection of products available.



 Bath bombs are a lovely gift and the So bomb DIY light up sets would make lovely gifts for you and the children to do together .

These look great , you can pick them up as a set of 2 or a vanity case.

Retail at £8.00+


Leggings  are my go to and I have raved about the Love Leggings  for years , they are the only leggings  I wear and I absolutely love them . 

They keep their shape , figure flattering and are PERFECT! :)

They have brought out a new range , Jeggings and these would make a lovely treat for mother’s this year . They are super soft and fit like an absolute glove .The range starts at just £15.00.

If you have followed me for a while then you will know I absolute love Orchids , they are my favourite flower and I love them so much.


Lechuza have their Orchidea  plant pot which are incredible.They are self watering with a water level indicator and have a removable plant insert too.

They come in three different colours and retail at £19.99

We made the dragon and the turtle from it Saturday afternoon, my god it was a challenge - Nila gave up half way but I was determined to finish it , it looked pretty good to be fair.

I spent this morning getting the house cleaned so that wasn’t on my mind for next week , schooling and working from home in a nice freshly cleaned house , I am so looking forward to.



Hoovered and polished , clothes put away, the works. We then headed out for a walk, I’m really trying to get out everyday or move our bodies every day . We tried to set up the Wii but the controllers have corrosion so I’ve ordered some from eBay ,which will be here by Thursday - can’t wait for a just dance off! 



Bubble baths and a sausage roast and snuggles in bed . We made a den to snuggle in tonight and Nila fell asleep straight away, she was absolutely shattered!.



I’ve just got into bed with a brew and going to meal plan for the week and catch up on some work before the week starts - i think I’ll do Doner kebab in the slow cooker tomorrow, if you haven’t tried it ,’it is so good!.

Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend .
