Being a mum means putting those little people before yourself. Long gone are the days of pampering, impromptu days out with the girls or luxe weekends away. That being said, mum’s still need to make some time for treats and self care, after all you can’t pour from an empty cup! There’s nothing more important than reminding your partner what a fab mum she is or your own mum how special she is to you.
I’ve put together a little guide with inspiration to help you decide what to treat your mum or partner to this Christmas or for some ideas for a birthday, Mother’s Day or special occasion.
When you have little one’s sleep becomes a thing of the past! Anything that helps me get the best sleep possible in the few hours that I get I’m here for. Echor’s End Of Day Candle is a natural candle filled with essential oils to help you relax and get the best nights sleep. I like to light this an hour before bed so I can chill out, forget the stresses of the day and feel like I’m at a luxury spa for a while, even if I’m actually just in my living room! This candle would make such a lovely gift for a mum who could do with some chill out time.
My next gift suggestion is maybe not the most exciting gift but something that most mum’s will be very thankful for. ModiBodi are a sustainable period pants brand and in my opinion are a life changing discovery for busy mum’s. I’ve been using ModiBodi for more than a year now and I’m truly converted, no more worrying about leaks or being caught off guard when out and about. They’re also ultra comfy, once you’ve change to reusable period products you will never look back. They’re a little pricey to get started with initially but ModiBodi are well worth the investment in my opinion and a fab gift idea to introduce a mum to more sustainable and comfortable periods!
You can’t go wrong with gifting some skincare for a pamper. Dermalogica are one of my favourite skincare brands, I feel their products really show results. Some of my favourite Dermalogica products are the daily microfoliant, ultracalming cleanser and sound sleep cocoon night cream.
Wake London also have some lovely more affordable skincare treats and all their products are vegan and cruelty free Their eye gel is great for those tired mum under eye bags and their hyaluronic acid enriched face cream is perfect for tired, dry skin.
For the new mum, Little Butterfly London are a luxury UK based company who make the most beautiful pamper treats for pregnancy, babyhood and beyond. Full of organic, natural ingredients perfect for even the most sensitive skin any mum would be delighted to find something from Little Butterfly London under the tree. They have a range of beautiful gift sets to suit a range of budgets as well as stand alone products, you’ll be spoilt for choice! They also have 30% off for Black Friday using the code BF3022
If you’re looking for a little stocking filler for a mum in your life (or yourself!) Mavala have some lovely little trios of nail polish in a range of colours to suit any style. I particularly love this nude set full of 3 perfect every day shades. They’re excellent quality and don’t chip easily which essentially for busy mums running around picking up toys and washing our hands 300x a day!
