Hey Beauties!! How is everyone this week??
Can you believe it’s almost Mother’s Day?! Every year I struggle to find the ‘Perfect’ gift for my mother and mother-in-law. How much is the ‘right’ amount of money to spend? What’s too much? Does it even matter?? Everyone has their own opinion.
But it’s the thought that counts though right?!
Below I’ve shared some gift ideas that I think are perfect for mother’s day. Each varying in price and completely different.
For the mum that love’s abit of glam in her life. If your mum is anything like me and loves to play about with makeup or maybe she’s been talking about trying out some lashes for a while, check out falseeyelashes.co.uk!! They kindly sent over some lashes for me to play about with and they are beautiful!! As you can see from the picture they have different styles and work with different brands. I LOVE that the glue they have is latex free as I’m severely illergic.
Below are the Eyelure Lashes which I absolutely loved the feel and look of. These were so easy to apply as they have a self adhesive so you don’t need glue!! They didn’t budge on my eyes at all and were actually really comfortable, I forgot I had them on!! I had many comment’s on how lovley they were and some people didn’t realise I had falsies on!! I can’t wait to create more look’s with these. I highly reccomend getting their lash applicator as it made applying them sooooo much easier!! Check out my Instagram to see what other looks I created with them!!
Whether mum’s admit it or not, we all love something sentimental that’s handmade by our child!! I keep a box when all the drawings/cards that the sprogs have made me through the year’s. My mum even has thing’s I made her when I was small!! These keepsakes don’t seem like much, but the effort an love that goes into them is more than any mum could ask for. Check out HOBBYCRAFT for some amazing craft products!!
Does you mum drink alot of herbal tea?? My mother-in-law love’s the stuff so this would be a great gift!!
So what is Theenk Tea?!

Everyone love’s smellies right?? Then you need to check out Sniffy Wiffy!!
Here is some info behind the product..
“I had the idea for SW a few years ago now whilst watching Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies – they were showing a breast check and talking about all the different things you need to look out for. They also mentioned that the best time to perform a self breast check is when your skin is slightly slippery, such as while applying body lotion or while in the shower etc. I did think to myself that there was quite a lot of info to retain and also I was one of many who thought a lump was the only thing to look out for. I then had a bit of a lightbulb moment and thought why not put all the different steps involved and what to look out for on tubs of body lotion, also donating to charity along the way. I then had to set about creating my own body lotion and at the time my daughter was quite young and prone to skin irritations – I realised that there were tons of ingredients in Johnsons Body Lotion and was intent on trying to go back to basics and formulate something with very few ingredients. I had no idea whether this would work/be any good but after a lot of trial and error I came up with my body lotion with only 5 main ingredients (4 if you opt for fragrance free). From that came various other products eg my Hair & Body Wash which took me absolutely ages to formulate as I wanted to avoid using the controversial SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulphate) – trying to source an alternative and then create a formula was very hard but fab when I finally managed it! All my products are also free from parabens. SW has been a very slow burner as I have had no investment and when I started was working 3 other jobs to support my children. (I am now just doing 2 others!). My husband left us a few years ago so I had to take a long break from it but am so so keen to get it back up and running. It is obviously hard with no marketing budget – it really is a case of trying to sell then using the money made to put straight back into the company. I operate SW as a Social Enterprise – my social mission being to try and increase the number of ladies and gents who know about, and self-check for, the signs and symptoms of breast and testicular cancer – significantly recognising that a lump is not the only sign of cancer. More recently I also introduced a kids range showing the signs & symptoms of meningitis and septicaemia so that all parents/carers can have this vital info to hand. “
I absolutely LOVED the idea behind this brand especially the name, it’s AWESOME!! And can personally say after testing out the Body Lotion that the smell incredible and left my skin silky smooth!! The formula is thick in consistency and dried down really quick so no sticky skin for me. The packaging is simple but beautiful, all recyclable and the instruction’s to check yourself are clear and very informative. This is something I really think any mother would love!! Check out their WEBSITE to see all the amazing product’s and scent’s they have!! I had ‘Citrus Burst’.
What will you be getting your mam for mother’s day beauties?? Please let me know if you do get anything I suggested!! If you enjoy my gift guides please let me know down in the comments!! I hope you all have the best mother’s day with your mam’s!!
Much Love – Mrs Slee-Jones xx
