What to get for Mother’s Day?

Mothering Sunday is creeping upon us.  This year I have to buy for a mummy and a
mum-in-law, therefore I decided my search is post-worthy.   
So, budget depending, I thought I’d explore a few options,
which hopefully might inspire you too.   

Radox Eastern Spirit Bath Therapy

Shame on you, you cheapskate.  Just kidding. 
If you’re on a budget, these Radox bath goodies are great.  Radox have really pulled out all the stops
with a choice of shower gels, scrubs and bath soaks.  
With different options such as Eastern Spirit
Bath Therapy (£2.31), which has a zingy scent with extracts of Orange Blossom,
to Radiant Spa £2.21), which features fig and neroli oil, you can bring a
little luxury to Mother’s Day without breaking the bank.   
My tip would be to opt for the bath soak over the shower
gels this Mother’s Day.  This is because
a bath just screams ‘me time’.  So the
added value of a bath soak goes way beyond the product itself, so it’s well
worth the small price you’d pay. 
I’ve tried their Moisture Soak, which contains calendula and
rose, and it really does make bath time feel so much nicer, not to mention
leaving a nice smell in your bathroom long after you’ve pulled the plug. 
If you’re budget stretches, jewellery is always a great
option.  Keep it simple and classy and
you can’t go far wrong.  I always think
jewellery is a much safer bet than clothes, which is plagued with issues, not
least upsizing your favourite lady. 
So here are a couple of jewellery options I think fit the

Another ‘safe bet’ is a good old pashmina.  They work with everything and you dodge that
whole ‘I’m not a size 14, I’m a 12′, issue. 

Accessorize do some lovely, soft pashminas (or stoles, as
you may call them).  I’ve bought one for
my mum in the past.  It was super-soft and she loved it.  They’ve
got some nice ones in stock now:

You can’t go wrong with a bunch of your mum’s favourite
flowers.  They brighten any room, and I know
for a fact that both my mum and mother-in-law love flowers, so I think whatever
I opt for, I’ll sneak a bunch in.
