Mothers Day Beauty Gift Guide and DIY Gift

12:44 Laura Thornberry 20 Comments


With Mothers Day coming up, in just under a week, on Sunday 10th March, many people will be looking for the ideal gift for their mothers, and 9 times out of 10, being stuck for ideas. In this blog, I'm going to give you some ideas on what to buy your mums, and hope they are something you may choose if you're stuck. 

Gift Buying Guide - My Top Picks

Chocolates, wine and flowers, as well as a nice card, are the typical presents that many get their mothers for Mother's Day. I'm sure this is appreciated by many, as it always is "the thought that counts", however, some people like to be more thoughtful and personal in what they purchase for their mothers.

 I have chosen 3 beauty gifts that I think would be perfect for Mother's Day!Buy Heathcote & Ivory Vintage Mimosa & Pomegranate Indulge Me Set Online at johnlewis.com

DIY GIFT - Make It Personal!

This year, I have decided to create my own gift set for my mum, to make it more personal and more direct to the things that she likes. This is a way to put your own stamp on something and be more creative and thoughtful with the gift you are giving.


This is a gorgeous small wicker gift basket that I purchased on Ebay for £3.99, which I thought was perfect for what I wanted to make. The basket is made with brown wicker and has a creamy beige linen lining, which really go well together.

I then purchased a numerous amount of beauty bits to put into my set, which I know that my mum really likes. This way, it is more personalized to your mothers tastes, and will definitely be a winner on Mother's Day!

    My mum has sensitive skin so it's really hard to by skin and makeup products for her!

    I brought her a Yankee Candle because she loves them, some Chocolates from Thorntons and some socks with pugs all over because it's our fave dog, that were from Topshop haha!
