Mother's day - a last minute gift guide

In my usual style I've left it till the very last minute to pick up a gift for Mother's day. Thankfully though speaking to friends and colleagues it seems like I'm not alone and if like myself you've still yet to find the perfect treat then here are 4 last minute beauty suggestions (all easily available on the high street):

Elemis cellular recovery skin bliss capsules

Elemis pro collagen treats

With high end skincare  for all skin types, Elemis would be a natural choice for Mother's day. You could always treat your mum to her favourite serum or moisturiser but if she's new to the brand then either the above gift sets would be a good option. The cellular recovery capsules in particular comes beautifully packaged and with individual little pods of skincare oil this would be perfect for the mother who likes to take the time to really pamper herself. Pro collogen treats on the other hand contains 2 skincare essentials - the much raved about cleansing balm (see my review here) and the advanced eye treatment. Plus the sturdy case doubles up nicely as jewellery box afterwards.

Yardley Jade EDT

Perfume would be another classic gift and for a light spring scent then take a look at the new Yardly Jade EDT. Inspired by the swinging 60s and with notes of peach, bergamot, rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang and sandalwood it's their most youthful fragrance yet. The perfume rather reminds me of Chanel Chance and even better it's currently less then £10 at Boots, meaning there'll be plenty of change left over for a box of her favourite chocolates too.

Mandara spa bali santi

Finally for some pampering bathtime treats then what about the newly launched Mandara Spa bali santi range? Key ingredients include coconut oil, lotus flower milk, yogurt, spice and flowers, although blended together it smells exactly like a tub of melted chocolate. The Bali santi nurturing body milk in particular is just beautiful and I'd highly recommend picking up a bottle for yourself too!

Are you a last minute shopper like myself? What did you get for mother's day?


  1. Lovely gift ideas. My mum would just love the Elemis sets (so would I). Perfect treats
