Mother's Day Gift Guide: Part One

Tuesday, March 12, 2019
Today's post is finally my first Mother's Day gift guide for the year! I have been lucky enough to be gifted a range of gorgeous gift ideas from the following brands: Clockface Beauty, Aromaworks, David Hampton, Prestige Flowers, Primal Cure and Tiny Box - thanks so much to all of the brands involved!

*David Hampton Britannia Leather Zip Around Purse (£65)
Let's start with the most luxe item in today's gift guide, the gorgeous 'Britannia' purse from David Hampton which is a luxury leather goods brand that have a wide range of purses, wallets, bags and leather accessories to choose from so you're bound to find a cute Mother's Day gift. The Britannia purse has six card slots, two currency compartments, an ID window, coin section and outside receipt pocket.
The purse comes in a gorgeous gift box marked with David Hampton on the front so aesthetically it makes for a very luxe and generous gift. As for the purse itself, it comes in three colours including plum and thistle as well as red (which is more of a pink tone). I opted for the red variation which thankfully looks more pink toned than opaquely red which I love and despite the current political situation, I do actually love the union flag design.

I think it would make a lovely and luxe gift for Mother's Day this year as it's beautifully presented, it looks gorgeous, it is very well made and it is a practical gift (we all know how much I love to give practical gifts that are also very pretty - this one ticks all of the boxes for me). Mother's Day is a great excuse to treat your mum, guardian or grandma so why not opt for a luxurious and practical gift idea this year? Check out the David Hampton website for more gift ideas!
*ClockFace Beauty Face Mask - Green Clay and Rosewood (£24)
Sticking with the luxurious gift theme is a vegan and all natural skincare brand that's new to me, ClockFace Beauty. They have a fantastic range of skincare for men and women that are all gentle, natural and suitable for vegans to use. I was very kindly sent the green clay and rosewood face mask which came in a cute little gift box!

It contains a selection of natural ingredients including green clay, coconut oil, white clay, vitamin E and essential oils. This particular mask is designed to remove dead skin cells, fight signs of ageing, unblock pores and clarify the skin as well as acting as a natural antiseptic to reduce inflammation and irritation. I've used it a couple of times already and it's a lovely traditional mask, perfect for pamper days.
*Aromawork Aromabomb - Serenity (£10)
My final luxe pampering gift idea is from a brand I've tried previously and loved, Aromaworks. I was sent one of their boxed single bath bombs, in the 'serenity' scent. There are four single bath bombs to choose from as well as a few gift sets but any one of them would make a great pampering gift idea for tired mums, guardians or grandmas.

The 'serenity' scent combines sea salt and calamine with essential oils to create a spa-like scent in your own bathroom with notes of lemongrass, neroli and geranium. I think a bath bomb is a great pamper gift as it's more of a treat product and it is an item my mum wouldn't ever buy for herself - those are some of the best types of gifts to receive, something you've wanted for a while but don't want to buy for yourself.
*Prestige Flowers - Lomond (£34.99 - sale)
Flowers are a safe gift for so many people - I personally love receiving flowers and not just because they look great in blog photos...This gorgeous bouquet from Prestige Flowers contains sorbet roses, germini flowers, shamrock blooms and decorative foliage. The combination of the beautiful array of various hues of pink flowers mixed with the bright green foliage makes it the perfect fresh spring bouquet.

Prestige Flowers have so many options when it comes to their bouquets, not just in terms of the floral combinations but also the size of the bouquet (standard, medium and large), message card and the little extras you can add to your gift such as chocolates (if you choose this bouquet, it comes with free chocolates), a vase, balloons, alcohol or an adorable teddy bear.
I've had my bouquet for about ten days and it's only just starting to show signs of being not quite it's best which is fantastic. I always use the flower feed within the package and after the first few days, I switch the water everyday to make sure it's fresh. I'm so impressed with this beautiful bouquet as it arrived safety, well protected and beautifully packaged; additionally the flowers themselves lasted longer than I thought they would and it's such a pretty arrangement. I think anyone would be happy to receive this bouquet from Prestige Flowers as a gift, especially for Mother's Day.
 *Tiny Box Magnetic Gift Box (£2.67)
Last Christmas instead of using gift bags, I made my own large cardboard gift boxes and decorated them with wooden tags, wooden stars and metallic ink (you might have seen the result if you follow me on Instagram - @ofbeautyand). I loved the result and I am always trying to package gifts in a more unique and environmentally friendly or re-usable way.

When looking for very large cardboard boxes that would be easy to decorate, I had trouble finding ones that were the size I wanted and that didn't cost the earth and I wish I'd known about Tiny Box last November as it would have saved so much time searching. Tiny Box stock a huge range of gift boxes and bags so you're bound to find something for whatever gift you have.

As you know, I love creating hampers for friends and family so the magnetic gift box I was kindly sent from Tiny Box is perfect. I'm going to be using mine as a Mother's Day pamper hamper box filled with beauty products for my mum this year. The size and structure of the box is ideal as a hamper as it's study, well made and it has a magnetic closure. If you need a gift box or bag for Mother's Day then I cannot recommend Tiny Box enough.
 *Primal Cure Cosmetics, Skincare and Supplements 
Speaking of hamper products, a brand I came across last month, Primal Cure, have a great range of health care and wellbeing related items that could be made into a wellness Mother's Day hamper. They stock a wide range of supplements for a variety of issues or for general use as well as herbal tea, essential oils, skincare and bodycare products.

I was sent a range of their products including their skincare and supplements, all of which fit inside my gift box so there's room for even more pamper products! I love giving gifts, especially hampers as they seem like much more personal and special gifts compared to a generic gift set. I think a wellbeing hamper, with Primal Cure products, would make a great and thoughtful gift this Mother's Day.
*Primal Cure Lavender Essential Oil (£6.99, 20ml)
My favourite product from Primal Cure, alongside the very nourishing cocoa butter daily moisturiser, is their lavender essential oil. They have a couple of great essential oils sets to choose from too. I love lavender, it's my favourite scent and it happens to be one that's ideal for relaxation so it would be great to add to a Mother's Day hamper.

You can use essential oils within diffusers, to make your own beauty products or on their own, the latter is the way I tend to use them. For the lavender oil, I like the dispense a few drops into my bath or onto my pillowcase so I can smell it as I sleep - that's the easiest way to use this oil but there are so many variations. Whatever you're adding to a Mother's Day pamper hamper, make sure to check out Primal Cure of wellbeing gift ideas.
