Mother's Day Gift Guide

We're now a week away from Mother's Day, so I'm here to give you some suggestions on what to gift the best woman in your life this year...

A fragrance will always go down well and one of the best launches (so far) this year is the Chloe Nomade. The scent is inspired by adventure, freedom and empowerment and it comes in a bottle designed around the signature Chloe handbag. The eau de parfum features top notes of mirabelle, bergamot, lemon and orange, heart notes of freesia, jasmine, peach and rose and base notes of oakmoss, amberwood, patchouli, sandalwood and white musk. It is available in three sizes - 30ml, 50ml and 75ml, with prices starting at £47.

Another, more interesting scent, is the YSL Black Opium Hair Mist. Making the perfect affordable option for fragrance fiends who like their scents on the premium side, this hair mist features the original YSL fragrance's signature notes of black coffee, white flowers and vanilla. It smells absolutely gorgeous and is also infused with argan oil to keep hair smooth and silky, whilst smelling freaking beautiful. It cost £35 and is available from The Perfume Shop.

Speaking of The Perfume Shop, if you do decide to go with gifting a fragrance, be sure to check out the brand's personalisation service. It is a unique service that enables you to have some of the world's best perfume bottles engraved with a name or personal message - and there are over 300 bottles to choose from! Prices start at £5.99 and you can create any message you want, so long as it stays within 66 characters!

For those that love to go traditional and give a gift set, the Elie Saab Le Parfum set is the perfect choice. Le Parfum is an ultra-feminine, woody, floral scent that has amazing projection and equally as amazing lasting power. It features top notes of African orange flower, middle notes of jasmine and base notes of patchouli, cedar, rose and white honey. The gorgeous gift set contains a 50ml bottle of the beautiful scent and a 75ml scented body lotion, packed up in a cute white Elie Saab bag. It cost £60 and is available from Debenhams!

If your mum is more of a skincare girl, I recommend gifting something from Olay's Regenerist collection. This range is dedicated to regenerating skin cells for more firm, youthful-looking skin. Each product in the range is also packed with antioxidants, to ensure the skin is protected from environmental aggressors that speedup skin ageing. The Regenerist range features everything from a cleanser and CC cream, to three serums and six moisturisers - so there are a variety of products and price points to choose from. The range is available at Superdrug, with prices starting at £16.99!

If money is tight this month, I recommend the Mandara Spa Amber Heaven Collection. There are four products in the collection and they each smell super indulgent and will leave your mum feeling perfectly pampered - there is a Honey Bath, Softening Body Cream, Luxurious Bath Soak and Shower Cream. Available exclusively at Sainsbury's, prices range between £3 - £7, so you can treat your mum to the whole Amber Heaven collection without breaking the bank!

Another great affordable option is the Champneys Reward & Restore Gift Set. It is a true pampering pack that includes a Summer Dream Rewarding Shower Gel, Summer Dream Rewarding Bubble Heaven, Summer Dream Rewarding Body Lotion, Harmonious Hands Restoring Hand Scrub, Harmonious Hands Restoring Hand & Nail Cream SPF15, a metallic pink nail polish and a nail file! And these aren't just a load of miniature versions either - they are all full size products! Which is pretty impressive, considering the set is currently just £22 at Boots!
