I’m a mom (and yes we spell it like this in Birmingham) so I figured I’m in as good a position as anyone to create a mother’s day gift guide to share gift giving ideas. I have a huge range of hobbies and interests so I’ve been busy reviewing all manner of products to bring to your all manner of options no matter who you’re buying for. I’ve also managed to secure some samples so will be running giveaways throughout March with some items featured in this guide.
House cleaning services
If you’re grateful for all the time and effort being put in to cleaning and wish to give your loved one a break from it all then what better opportunity than providing a voucher for house cleaning services this mothers day? Fantastic Services have vouchers and £50 could cover three house cleans giving a mom the time to have a real break from it all to do whatever they wish. Sounds like a dream gift to me! You can personalise your vouchers too. Thanks to the team at Fantastic Services I have a £50 voucher that can be used towards a cleaning service of choice to giveaway.

Zendo candles are a U.K. based company which crafted hand poured aromatherapy candles with nature powered well-being benefits. I had the opportunity to sample the very first batch of this gorgeous orange, cedarwood and cypress candle and boy oh boy does my home smell divine.

The perfect print

They also have a personalised section that that is super popular and makes the ideal presents to share in this Mother’s day gift guide. I know which prints I have my eye on and have cleared a space in my home already.
I’ve always been insanely jealous of seeing the kids playing at the park and I’m always the first to join in on a zip wire or roundabout – the must have for kids according to Arlo right now is Heelys. These bring the nostalgic vibes and I couldn’t resist choosing my own matching pair of quad roller skates too! Rainbow vibes and all the colours. What better way to celebrate motherhood than with matching skates?
Thoughtful, long lasting and Useful
These portable cutlery sets from Mnched are perfect for on the go use. Wether that’s for work, road trips, picnics or a foodie weekend. Having your own set means you never have to go for single use again. Mnched sent me out two sets and as soon as I opened the packaging my mom was looking over my shoulder and suggested a set would be perfect for her work packed lunches. I surprised her with this marble effect set early, and had to include it in my Mother’s Day gift guide. My set is a beautiful Matt pink colour. Click here to win your own set.
A cleansing ritual
There is nothing I enjoy more than trying to recharge my batteries. It’s quite hard to do that when you’re so busy but when I have five minutes peace I like to unwind and recharge my crystals, have a moment of meditation and light some Insense to find my inner calm. Vedmantra sent me out samples to try out and I am obsessed with white sage. Each pack contains twenty sticks and a burner which is ideal. White sage is known to have strong insect repelling qualities and are used in cleansing rituals to infuse positive energy and I’m totally here for that!

Curl up with a book
There is nothing I enjoy more than getting lost in literature. now that spring has arrived I enjoy taking five minutes outside to sit under a tree and transport myself in to another world. The Stealing by S. A. Sutila is a brand new page turner – think Wuthering Heights but set in America in the midst of the eighties. I’m only half way through but already encountering some insane plot twists so I have no idea where this is going to take me. one minute its romance and the next it flips and confronts some heavy issues head on.
Peach and rose gin
It’s beautiful and the perfect gift for Mum’s and Gin lovers! Available via www.didsburygin.com priced £29.95.
