Mother's Day Gift Guide

Hello Lovelies,

I hope you had a lovely weekend, I had an extremely relaxing one, with many hours being spent on the couch, watching - probably - far too many ANZAC Day documentaries, I seriously could watch them repeatedly !

So with Mother's Day fast approaching - well for some countries at least - I thought I'd put together a little gift guide to help ease some of the gift buying stress. Whether you're lucky enough to have a mother in your life or whether you just have some fantastic female figures around you - Aunts, Grandmas, Sisters, etc - I thought I'd give you some suggestions on what you can buy or make these lovely ladies, to show them, just how much they, and their hard work are appreciated !

Coming from a family where both my mum and my dad would always make a point of telling my siblings and I that they didn't want a gift and as long as we were there to celebrate with them, that's all that mattered, I still think it's a nice gesture to give someone a gift just to show how much you appreciate them in your life. So whether you're someone who likes to buy a gift from a shop or is more into creating a D.I.Y present with a personal touch, I have got you covered !

You can click the links underneath each photo, which will either take you to the online store or D.I.Y website, if you were wanting to purchase or make any of the suggestions below :)

Store Bought Gifts

All of the gift suggestions above are under $50, which means you can still buy an amazing gift, but it definitely won't break your budget. You can also personalise store bought gifts, by adding things that the person likes ie: Buy a candle scent they enjoy, add a box of their favorite tea/coffee to a cute mug, etc. Whether she's a fashionista, a devoted gardener, or a passionate cook, there's something for every lovely lady.

D.I.Y Gifts

DIY Gifts

Personal Notes in a Jar / Glitter Candle Jar / DIY Photo Collage / Vanilla Brown Sugar Body Scrub / Pedicure/Manicure in a Jar / DIY Personalised Mugs

I love the idea of a hand-made gift and the fact that you can add so many personal touches to them, plus they can be customised to each person. By adding their favorite scent to a body scrub or favourite nail polish colour to a pedicure/manicure in a jar, you can personalise it specifically for them. I've also added a gift that my siblings and I made my mum one year for her birthday, which was a collage we made out of all different family photos and stuck them inside a photo frame, we then wrote our own little personal messages in gold pen around the black border and added some extra cute little love heart stickers.

I hope you all could get some inspiration from my Mother's Day Gift Guide and are no longer feeling as stressed or worried with what to get that special woman in your life.

I'm doing a double post this week, so stay tuned for my next post on Thursday. Until then, I hope you all have a lovely day and I'll see you very soon !

  1. I just tweeted at you :) I would totally buy the crown sugar scrub. I feel like it's something my mom would use.

    I can see that you listed all the products in hyperlinks. You can use www.dobundle.com to find all these products online and pair them with one image. So I can click on the image you created and it takes me to the products - no need for separate hyperlinks :) You can then post it on your blog. Let me know how you like it.
