I can’t believe March is here. I don’t know about you but the last two months have flown by! Today is International Women’s Day too and I would like to wish all the ladies around the world happiness, laughter and lots of self-love! We are powerful, strong and we can achieve great things.
This week in the UK we are also celebrating Mother’s Day. As a mum of two I love receiving hand made cards from my girls and getting lots of cuddles and kisses. I also like to receive a surprise gift, whether it is a skincare product or something personalised, it makes me so happy. Below I have listed some of the wonderful local Basingstoke businesses which offer great Mother’s Day gift ideas. Make sure you check them out and I am sure you can find something for your mum or as a treat for yourself.
Ella-Rose’s Wonder Emporium creates wonderful handmade soaps, bath scrubs and bath bombs. You can treat yourself or your loved one to wax melts or whipped soap full of the luxurious scent of your choice and with or without a little sprinkle of sparkles! I bought a couple of soaps from Ella-Rose over Christmas for my girls. Sophie chose a mermaid and Hanna had a dog paw. They smelt lovely!
Tropic with Alex has a lot to offer! There are so many different gift ideas, ranging from gifts under £10! Tropic products are Vegan friendly, gorgeous and natural. You can treat yourself or your loved one to a body wash collection, luxury bath bomb or to a “walk on the beach” foot collection. If you also contact Alex she can tell you all about the brand and answer all your question about each product.
Aimeleigh from Feral Creations makes fabulous personalised gifts. I think each mum would love a mug with a picture of her kids. You can also order a personalised cushion with a photo or have a personalised print on a t-shirt. Those gifts would for sure make every mumma happy!
Wonderful Rebecca from See Scents offers Mother’s gift sets which include bath bomb, soap, body scrub and foot scrub. They would make a great gift for any mum! Back in December, I bought bath bombs and soaps from Rebecca as a teacher gift and all teachers loved the smell and quality. You can also find fabulous candles in Rebecca’s shop.
Are you looking to surprise your mum with something unique? Debbie from Happy Flock and Co can send 24 Flamingos to your mums garden! It includes set-up/collection, personalised sign and photo magnet of the big day. It would brighten anyone’s day and bring big smiles! Who doesn’t love flamingos!
Sammy from Labelled up and down creates personalised clothing, phone cases and cake toppers. These are great for celebrating Mother’s Day. If you have a little one Sammy can create a lovely baby grow with a personalised message such us “our first Mother’s Day”. Babies look so cute in them!
Another great idea is to purchase a gift voucher for yourself or your mum for a massage, facial treatment, eye or hands treatment. I would love a massage, especially after lockdown! Claudette from Karlek Beauty offers gift vouchers that you can use after the lockdown ends. It would be a treat to any hardworking mum!
Now, do you or your mum loves chocolate? If yes make sure you check out yummy treats on Hayley’s website. She runs Mum of Sons and offers a variety of products including chocolate smash hearts. They look delicious!
Lastly, if you are looking for a family photographer in Basingstoke to capture your family moments, a photography voucher might be just perfect. Also if you just had a baby and wondering what your husband can get you for Mother’s Day, my newborn photography vouchers can be a wonderful surprise!
All the above businesses are fab! These women work so hard and are passionate about their businesses. Show them some love and you will make their day even with the smallest order.
Till next time
