I can’t believe how close Christmas is! Aaron has been asking me for weeks what he can buy me and I’ve struggled so much for ideas. I think because I have been so worried and focused on what I was going to buy for everyone else, I completely forgot to even think about what I want! Motherhood in a nutshell right there…
I thought I would come up with a selection of gifts that would be perfect for mums, some as main presents and some as little stocking fillers. Here is my Christmas Gift Guide For Mums.
SCENTED GIFT CANDLE; BRINLEY WILLIAMS (£16) : I LOVE a candle and I always have one on my wish list for both Christmas & birthdays. What I love about the Brinley Williams candles are how customisable they are! You can pick different quotes to have on the glass holder, what colour glass you would like your candle to be in (either black or clear) and you can also pick from one of thirteen scents including Basil & Mandarin and Parma Violet! You also get to choose whether you add a lid to your candle & a gift box, which if you want to make your gift extra special, would be a lovely touch.
COPPER STONE PAN; JML (FROM £19.99) : I know this won’t be everyone’s idea of a good present but I actually really enjoy cooking! Not only because I get 30 minutes to myself but I find something really therapeutic about cooking. I’ve seen these copper stone pans advertised so many times on television and there is something so intriguing about a pan that claims nothing sticks! I’m determined in the new year to be healthier and because these pans reduce the need for fats & oils when cooking, they are the perfect addition to the kitchen.
SLEEK MAKEUP POLISH & POUT KIT; BOOTS (£8.50) : Since having Teddy, I haven’t really found the time to have much ME-TIME. You truly are at the bottom of a very long list and it’s hard to fit in any time for yourself. It’s crazy how the smallest things can make you feel good about yourself, I love taking ten minutes out of my day to paint my nails & I’ve always been a bold lip kinda’ gal, so this duo set would be perfect! It is also a part of Boots 3 for 2 offer.
INDIGO CHOCOLATE MAKING GIFT SET; INDIGO HERBS (£19.99) : I am a complete chocolate lover. There’s no denying that, however as I’ve said I do really want to try being slightly healthier in the new year and that is why this make your own chocolate gift set is perfect! All the ingredients provided are 100% pure botanical resulting in chocolate that is more healthy and nutritious. The set also comes with Goji berries and Brazil Nuts for added flavour. The recipe is also gluten & dairy free, and also made with low GI natural sweetener. I think this set makes such a lovely gift idea because it’s something you can actually make at home.
SLEEK MAKEUP: SLEEK.SLEEP.REPEAT; BOOTS (£18.00) : I love this pouch from Boots, it is filled with a gorgeous eyeshadow pallet, a matte lip gloss and a mini mascara! My sister is a mama and I know she would absolutely love this. It’s so important to look after yourself as a mama and whether that’s enjoying a cup of tea or putting a little bit of make up on, whatever makes you feel nice & good about yourself OUTSIDE of being a mum.
I hope this post gives you some ideas of either gifts to buy for someone else or you might like to add some to your Christmas wish list.
