Mothers Day Gift Guide

So it's not long now until Mothers Day and I have been building up a bit of a collection of items for our Mothers Day gift guide. Mothers Day doesn't have to be about chocolate and flowers, although they are my absolute favourite thing to get! So take a look at this lovely collection I have for you, I'm sure you will find something for the Mother in your life.
A relaxing soak in the bath as all some Mums will want, these natural bath salts with Aromatherapy oils & rose petals from Dead Sea are priced at £6.85. Just a handful of salts scattered into the water will transform your bath into a haven of relaxation. These bath salts come in two delicious varieties so there’s something to suit every mood. The three wise men knew what they were doing when they brought spicy Frankincense as a gift for Jesus. It calms both your breathing and your mind whilst soothing tense muscles and rejuvenating your skin. Exotic Jasmine moisturises and tones the body outside whilst the calming fragrance soothes you on the inside. Lie back and feel your stress just float away.
I love this Shabby Chic Calendar house from Katie Jane Home for just £15. It has day and month blocks inside a house shape box. The natural colours would fit in any lounge or office and it would make a lovely gift.
