Mother's Day Last Minute Gift Ideas

For the lazy sons and daughters out there who haven't yet managed to pick up something for Mother's Day, here my dainty little gift guide on some affordable treats to suit your wallet and some indulgent foolproof luxuries to spoil the special lady in your life.

If you're a teenager or a student with a tight budget or just don't have enough cash to spare till pay day this month, you'll love these gorgeously packed goodies from The Body Shop that are sure to melt anyone's heart.

The Born Lippy Gift Set contains a tinted Lip Balm trio with wearable shades, decent pigmentation and of course intense hydration. Most of all however, the red tin heart box which has serious keepsake potential is simply to die for and of superb quality for £6.

If you're mum's a chocolate fan however but likes to stay away from the calories, she'll love these Chocomania Heart Soaps that come adorably wrapped up in a cone shape and smell scrumptious enough to take a bite from. Guilt-free naughty treat eh?

Two of my favourite Spring Fragrances, these are lightly floral and fruity to be easily likeable by a majority of mums and still delicately packaged so they'll love to flaunt the elegant piece on their dresser. Opt for Pure DKNY Rose for a rose based, warm and comforting scent that's not overpowering and Loccitane's Spring Cherry for a more upbeat floral and fruity chirpy scent that's refreshing.

Still lingering around scents, opulent candles that look as good as the Timothy Dunn one are a stunner, especially this Arabian Fig & Cashmere Wood one that's delicious, woody and musky with a hint of rose. It burns pretty well and the aroma that fills up the room is subtle, grown-up and beautiful.

The cult favourite Neom Reed Diffusers are a fail safe option  as they rely on unique and long lasting scents in the first place. Their newest addition, Rose & Neroli is my absolute favourite as it's feminine and sweet yet light and clean for this season. The fact that it comes packaged gorgeously with a stunning bottle also helps. Must have for your mum's living room!

Finally, you cannot go wrong with skincare as every women likes to pamper herself once in a while and these indulgent skincare products will provide just the right atmosphere. Super Facialist by Una Brennan is a new range of Face Masks and their Firming and Lifting one would be highly appreciated by my mum I know that for sure.

Where as the Hibiscus & Fig Body Lotion by Ahava has ingredients sourced from the dead sea so it's not only great for the skin and a change to the regular drugstore lotions, it smells divinely sweet and will get you into the habit of moisturising your body if you've been skipping out on it lately.

Hope this helped if you were struggling with last minute gift ideas. Regardless, have a lovely Mother's Day tomorrow!

I love the heart soaps, and the sweet little lip balms! I'd definitely have picked them up if the Body Shop in my town hadn't just closed down :/ xo

Lovely picks! I think a candle or perfume is always a good choice!

The heart soaps look so adorable. I'm going to check it out at my TBS store.
