Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide.

I don’t mean to alarm you but there are now only a handful of shopping days left until Mother’s Day (May 8th) and if you haven’t yet found the perfect gift for your mum then it is time to kick your butt into gear and head to your local shopping centre to pick up a a few of the easy to find and thoughtful gifts.

All these gifts are centred around the fact that mums tend to put everyone else before themselves and deserve a little bit of pampering every now and then. Mums are super busy and as a rule tend to neglect themselves when things get hectic.

mothers day 1

One part of our bodies that classically get neglected, especially as the weather cools down  are our feet. For those uber busy mums who don’t have time to visit the salon taking care of your feet home is essential. In the past its involved all many of files and pumice stones which can be slippery and messy. The new Scholl Velvet Smooth Wet & Dry foot file  can be used in the shower to help remove dead skin and is fully rechargeable with the included charger, eliminating the need to keep buying extra batteries. Its a great little tool to help manage your feet in between pedicure treatments.

Lush always do great bath times with collections of bombs, melts and shower products. Their Mothers Day collection this year did not fail to impress with their popular Yummy Mummy Shower Cream promising to fill your bathroom with orange and geranium perfumes. The Rose Bombshell BathBomb is pretty and feminine and creates swirls of pink water and rose petals for mum to soak in (preferably while enjoying a sneaky glass of wine and a locked door)

mothers day 3

Simple, pretty and no fuss makeup is what mums need on a day to day basis (but dont forget those  mums who prefer the Glam Kween look by hooking her up with a Sephora or Mecca voucher) ItCosmetics is made for mums, their no fuss, skincare infused makeup is perfect. The Je ne sais quoi collection provides a naturally pretty and rosey flush and are versatile enough to be worn on the cheeks for a natural glow as well as on the lips. Available exclusively instore at Sephora.

mothers day 4

Nothing shows your appreciation for all those nights you kept her up and all that mess you made her clean like a beautiful and luxurious fragrance. The collection of fragrances from Aerin are powerful and feminine all in one inspired by florals. Gardenia Rattan is pure white flower fragrance wrapped in an elegant bottle. Available from David Jones Aerin Lauder’s collection of fragrances from Estee Lauder are not cheap but are luxurious and special for that special woman in your life.

If you’re after beautiful fragrance without the giant price tag then look no further than your local The Body Shop outlet. The British Rose collection is beautifully scented with a pure and clean rose fragrance. Less grandma-ish rose scent and more the perfume of a summer rose garden the collection includes lotions, body mists, shower gels and more.



It might seem a little daggy but now thats its coming up to winter consider getting mum a lovely pair of pyjamas. For a little more luxe head to Peter Alexander for some fancy pants. Great news is that our super sexy curvy mums are now catered for at Peter Alexander with selected styles being available in up to size 26.

Regardless of what you get your mum be sure to spend some together talking or sharing a cuppa.
