mother's day gift ideas

Damn Jess, back at it again with the last minute gift guides. As much as I totally get that for Mother's Day some of us like to play it low key with flowers or perhaps breakfast in bed with a card, sometimes it's nice to go all out and truly spoil them. I tend to go for the more handmade approach but every few years I treat my lovely mum to a special gift or two. Everything that I've included is also worth keeping in mind for wonderful birthday presents too.

When it comes to treating my mum, Jo Malone is the first brand that comes to mind. She's as equally obsessed with their colognes as I am, and sees off a bottle of 154 in record timing. I love the 30ml bottles for gift giving as I find they are both perfect in size and price. 

Argentum La Potion Infinie is as luxury as luxury could possibly get and has the price tag to prove it. I use this little jar of magic when my skin is in need of some extra loving and I'd love to live in a world that I could treat each and every special lady in my family to a jar. As far as anti-ageing skincare goes, I truly do believe that this miracle cream is unbeatable. I will review it in full very soon! 

For gift sets that include lots of useful products to try out, Elemis have it nailed and are probably the gift of choice amongst most of us for that reason. I really enjoy that they are always such great value and more often than not the products included are worth around double the price that they are set at, and this one comes with a really useful wash bag too.  

From the very start of my blogging days up until now, Liz Earle has remained one of my all time favourite skincare brands and after introducing my family to the brand is now a staple for them too. My mum bought this set for my nana which just goes to show that my skincare advice has taken affect on them both. 

Back in my beauty college days (4 years ago!) I trained in Dermalogica facials and became rather addicted to a whole host of their products. My most loved product was always the Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque and now that I'm the proud owner of my very own version, I've become once again addicted to the stuff. It gives the most hydrated, dewy and radiant looking complexion I've ever had and makes my skin look as if I down eight pints of water each and every day, which I assure you is far from reality.
