Mother's Day is nearly here in the UK and I am sharing a little gift guide with some of my favourite products sent from brands recently, some of which would make perfect mother's day gifts for your mum or another special female relative or friend in your life.
This year Mother's Day for me will be a little different. I am going to visit my daughter in Bath for the weekend. I've booked a small Airbnb apartment. We have Thermae Bath Spa booked for some relaxation and rooftop swimming, we will do some shopping and meet up with her friends, then we will have lunch on Mothering Sunday before I head home and see my son in the evening.
Like so many of these 'special days', Mother's Day can bring mixed emotions for lots of us, I won't see my own mum on the actual day but I will visit the care home as soon as I can and take some spring flowers, a card and most importantly be with her and hold her hand,

Rosemood Atelier for personalised stationery, photo books and prints - I have recently written a blog post about the gorgeous products from Rosemood Atelier, they make beautiful, treasured gifts for someone special and I have a 10% discount code for orders placed before 31st March 2022, use code FIFTYFAB10. But remember to order before the 16th March for delivery in time for Mother's Day. My top recommendation? A personalised hardback notebook with a special quote and favourite photo memory embossed on the cover. I am using mine as my 2022 Journal and it has the quote 'she designed a life she loved'.
Cannabotech make products with both premium pharmaceutical grade CBD and medicinal mushrooms to supercharge your wellbeing, best sellers include their Beauty Sleep Drops and I am currently trying out one of their anti-ageing creams, the FormuGuard Antioxidant Cream feels silky smooth, nourishing and luxurious. It is anti-inflammatory and can calm the skin and ease redness and irritation. For 20% off the full range at Cannabotech use FIFTYFAB20.
Dermaworks have a fabulous range of beauty products that are affordable, ethical and easy to use. I have been trying out the Dermaworks Eyebrow Enhancing Serum to reactivate dormant roots and encourage new growth. Check out their products and use my discount code FIFTYFAB to get 10% off your order.
Code Beautiful is a super make-up and beauty brand set up by two sisters. I have tried out quite a few of their products now and love them! Cruelty free and vegan, they encourage us to embrace our vibrant selves. I love their new Code NBD Natural Brow Definer, or for Mother's Day have a look at their gift boxes, the Code Vibrancy Kit - I Woke Up Like This has all my favourite products in it. Any mum would be delighted with this I think. Use my code fifty to get 15% off their full range.
Tisserand is a well known aromatherapy brand and they have recently launched their new Nature's Spa Bath & Body Collection, an indulgent, organic-oil rich bath and body collection featuring their famous oil blends. They sent me the Rose & Ylang Ylang Indulgent Hand & Body Soap and the Indulgent Hand Cream to try out. The scent is gentle and the cream is rich and nourishing. A very pretty gift.
You know how I love gorgeous but comfortable underwear. Well the Flower Elegance set from Playtex in their new colourway, blueish grey is beautiful. Or for relaxing days, the Envisage bralette in Deep Ocean from Fantasie is super comfortable.
Vouchers make a thoughtful treat, so how about a spa day, a luxurious treatment or afternoon tea. Or combine all three! I tried out Cecily Medi Spa in Marlow recently and they have some fabulous packages for mum and daughter time. I also recommend ERA Skin & Laser Clinic at Thame for medical grade treatments and skincare products. One of my favourite locations for afternoon tea is the Corinthia Hotel in London but there are so many fun options to indulge mum with a day out.
Flowers are always acceptable, I have a regular delivery from Freddies Flowers but equally beautiful daffodils, presented in a pretty vase, would be so appreciated!
Contemporary Art - Wychwood Art Gallery is an online gallery specialising in affordable, contemporary art for sale. I was lucky to be sent a print called Beach Huts & Flowers by Anya Simmons, it comes in a double mount and is signed by the artist. And at just £25 it makes a lovely gift, no need to frame, I have mine propped up on my shelves in the lounge to remind me of days at the seaside! Find a selection of beautiful limited edition prints at Wychwood Art Gallery here.
Relax and sleep - The Gift of Sleep from Nourish London comes in a pretty gift box containing three products to help us get a blissful nights sleep (exactly what mum needs). It costs £39 and inside you will find ... a Sleep Pillow Mist, Probiotic Multi Mineral Repair Mask and Relax Hydrating Peptide Serum.
Hopefully a few ideas to inspire you! Or to treat yourself!
