With Mother’s Day on Sunday, there’s still plenty of time to pick up a gift if you haven’t quite found the perfect one!
Along with the usual gift guide, I’ll also be sharing some great special promotions brands are currently holding for Mother’s Day as well as how you can enter to win some lovely prize packs if you’re a little strapped for cash! You can also take a look at last year’s gift guide for more gift inspiration.
Sali Hughes’ Pretty Honest – I’ve spoken about this book a few times on the blog and I am still just as much in love with it as when I first purchased it. This book truley is a beauty bible with a difference. Whilst you’re receiving professional advice, it still feels as though you’ve asked a question and a friend is answering it. It’s easy to read and perfect for a beauty beginner or professional. For more thoughts on the book, click here.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 – With tech being such a big part in our lives, it can be hard to keep up with all the new releases but a tablet is such a versatile product to have. Even if your mum isn’t tech- savvy, an affordable tablet like this is perfect for them to read the online newspaper, watch videos, take pics and more.
Gift Vouchers/Cards – If your mum is just the hardest person to buy for or you kinda know what they’d like but not the exact product, purchasing a gift card is a good route to go. This way, they’re able to pick out exactly what they’d like and something that they will definitely use. Vouchers for places like Westfields, their favourite restaurant or even an experience (like a Spa Day or Cruise) will be very well received.
Go-To Skincare Gift Set – If there is a choice between purchasing skincare or makeup, I do slightly lean toward skincare as makeup is quite personal in terms of shades and such so a fantastic skincare pack this Mother’s Day is this one from Go-To. Soon to be reviewed on the blog, this line contains only natural skincare with no nasties and the products are of such a high quality and are suitable for all skin types.
Secret Garden by Johanna Basford – Colouring books for adults are all the rage at the moment and one of the most popular has to be that of Johanna Basford’s! Her books are gorgeously illustrated and ready to be coloured, decorated and designed for all those arty mums out there.
The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Deluxe Collection -Beautifully packaged, this Fuji Green Tea set is perfect for those who love a bit of pampering and relaxation. The package includes a body scrub, bath tea infuser to produce a fragrant soak, body butter and fragrance to leave your mum relaxed as well as smelling and feeling amazing.
Fragrance – Perfume is always a winner, whether you pick up their favourite scent or purchase a mini set to let them discover some new fragrances.
AMAZING Mother’s Day PROMOTIONS
ALLEGRA RHODES – These products only landed on my doorstep this afternoon but I had heard amazing things about the brand’s products in the past so I’ve quickly given them a go and they really are SO lovely! The Red Lychee scented products here have such a classically beautiful scent. Allegra Rhodes has an AMAZING deal on right now (I just had to share!) where their range of 3 piece gift packs (RRP: $123.85) are now all on sale for $30.00 only! There’s a range of hand, body or scent products PLUS each $30.00 gift pack now also includes a $25 Allegra Rhodes VOUCHER which you can use for future purchases! It’s such a fantastic deal and is a gorgeous Mother’s Day gift!
LUK BEAUTIFOOD – With a number of great Mother’s Day Gift Sets, this is my pick of the bunch! This $99.00 set (usually $175.00) comes with 7 sheer nude 100% natural lipsticks accompanied by a lovely Sally & Jane pouch. These lip nourishes glide onto the lips and impart a lovely soft colour with hydration and shine. For my full thoughts on this product, click here.
