gift, gift guide, Mother's Day, Mothering Sunday, candle, gin, scarf, Miss Dior, The Body Shop, MAC, books

For us Brits (just to clarify, already given my American housemate a mini-heart attack, oops!), Mother's Day is rapidly approaching. Of course we should all show our love and appreciation for our lovely mums all year round (hoping my mum's reading this, not gonna lie to ya), but it's nice to have a day to show her what she really means to you.


If you're a queen of leaving things to the last minute like me, and stuck for what to get, here's a little gift guide for you for whatever budget you're on.

Her favourite perfume, or one you love the smell of and think she will do too. Price: £30-£60



A bottle of her favourite alcohol. Price: £20-£40



A scarf, because it's bloody freezing at the moment (plus you can borrow it too). Price: £10-£30



A candle, who doesn't love candles? Price: £10-£20

A pretty frame with a cute picture of the two of you in it. Price: £5-£20 



Train tickets to a place she loves, for a day out just the two of you. Bonding time, awwww. Price: £5-£20

A coffee table book. No one can have too many of these. Or, if you're not so much into books, this scratch map of Europe for different nationalities dishes. Price: £5-£10



Be her slave for the day. The majority of us at one point in our lives have had our mothers slaving after us. I mean, we've all been babies. Give her the Queen treatment and answer her every beck and call all day. Price: Free 


And the classics, her favourite chocolates, a mug, hand cream, bath salts, jewellery, a bunch of her favourite flowers - lucky for me, my mum's favourite are daffodils which are usually about a pound a bunch! Score.
