So tomorrow is March, which means one thing in the UK - Mother's Day! Appreciating your Mum is SO important, so it's such a good opportunity to really show them what they mean to you. My Mum is amazing, she was a stay at home Mum and was always there when we got home from school, cooked our dinners, did our washing, etc. She gave up so much for us and if I could - I would spoil her rotten for it. With that in mind, I thought it would be quite a cool idea to do a luxury gift guide for Mother's Day.
I've teamed up with the The Royal Exchange to compile my top five ideal Mother's Day gifts. The Royal Exchange is an incredible luxury shopping and dining centre in the heart of London (actually quite close to where I work) with 30 luxury boutiques contained within it. Now I know how close it is to where I work, I'm going to have to be careful as there are a wealth of fabulous beauty and fashion accessories boutiques filled with lovely products. Note to self: do NOT walk down to Bank on my lunch break...
1 | KIEHL'S ROSE ARTICA YOUTH REGENERATING EYE CREAM, RRP £35
Well it wouldn't be T&M if there wasn't some sort of beauty in here would it? Kiehl's is one of my favourite brands of all time. Their skincare products are incredible! This particular product has a unique formula, which helps to regenerate the eyes for a more youthful appearance. Although I don't think my mum needs any help in this area, it's still a beautiful gift.
2 | LINKS OF LONDON EFFERVESCENCE PEARL EARRINGS, RRP £75
Pearl earrings just scream class don't they? I just think they are so timeless and classic - I always think of Audrey Hepburn when I see pearl earrings and let's face it, who wouldn't want to look like her? Links of London is a great jewellery brand and I happen to have a few of their pieces, as does my Mum. It's such high quality but still affordable and I just adore their Effervescence Collection.
3 | BREMONT SOLO 37 ROSE GOLD WATCH, RRP £3,450
So, the most expensive item on my gift guide but oh my life, look how pretty it is! Both my Mum and I are big fans of rose gold, so I know she'll love this piece. The embossed leather strap comes in a variety of colours, but personally I like the brown with rose gold, and it has a scratch resistant sapphire crystal front. Finished with 18 carat rose gold (wow) it is pricey but boy, is it worth it.
4 | LULU GUINNESS NEW FACE POLISHED LEATHER CESCA TOTE, RRP £350
My Mum is already a huge Lulu Guinness fan and when I saw this bag I just thought of her instantly. I love the cheeky little wink and the classic red pout. It comes with a detachable cross body strap, which is always super handy and I love having the option, and a classic red lining which really brings the whole look together and keeps it classically Lulu Guinness. Can I buy this for myself please?
5 | MOLTON BROWN YLANG YLANG ROOM FRAGRANCE, RRP £22
There are Molton Brown items all over my Mum's house, so this would be right up her street. The cheapest item in my selection, but no less beautiful. I really like room fragrances as they're a touch different to candles (and if you have curious cats, candles are NOT a good idea) and I feel like it's a nice touch. There's a whole collection with this fragrance, so you can always add extra bits and pieces to go with it.
There are so many other beautiful products you could pick up at The Royal Exchange, this is just a small collection! I hope my picks inspire provide some inspiration if you are struggling. Go on; treat your Mum this year!
What will you be getting your Mum for Mother's Day?
