Mother’s Day is fast approaching and is one occasion where I need to be more organised than most. My Mum’s birthday also falls in the second week of March and she lives in France… yey! Presents and cards have to be bought a few weeks in advance to ensure we are ready and the package arrives on time. With just over a week to go, here are some gift and card ideas for inspiration before Mother’s Day on Sunday 11th March.
Fortunately I can always find the perfect card to send my mum from the Hallmark range of cards. This year’s range includes some stunningly intricately designed cards which are always my favourite. With comedy cards, funny cards, cards with badges stating ‘Mum of the Year’ and cards with a heartwarmingly touching sentiment, you will easily find the perfect Hallmark card for Mother’s Day!
I always try to buy a cute present from Mini Me and a somewhat useful present from myself. When sending presents through the post, it tends to dictate what we can buy unfortunately. This year, Home Bargains have some wonderful gift inspiration and naturally Mini Me wanted to send a soft, cuddly toy which I have had to prise away from her and I thought a keyring from me would come in handy and this was super cute.
Skincare products are always a great gift idea to give on Mother’s Day and with the launch of the new NeoStratra Skin Active Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum, it is impeccable timing. The serum contains AmnioFil which penetrates the skin to help stimulate collegen and hyaluronic acid production which helps to improve the appearance of deep lines. Using the serum daily leaves your skin feeling super soft, giving a smooth appearance and more importantly, revealing a firmer complexion. Finding out that Elle Macpherson is a fan of NeoStrata products makes me think I should have started using the range a while ago! The serum is very easy to use with a pipette, that you use to apply 3-5 drops to a cleansed face twice daily. The bottle is quite pretty and is the perfect complement alongside your skincare products. Priced at £79, you can purchase the NeoStrata Skin Active Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum and other products in the range here.
Need super cute inspiration on a budget? The Hallmark range of Itty Bitty’s are a perfect gift idea, with Lady and the Tramp being the latest addition to the range of Disney characters. Part of the Limited Edition collection, you can purchase characters from the Itty Bitty range here.
