Mothers Day gift ideas 2013

This year I have decided to do something different with my Mothers Day gift ideas list, I will be choosing a ‘steal’ and ‘splurge’ option for each gift. I will also be providing links to a few products that will be able to be purchased within Australia and the US/internationally.

Scented Candle

mothers day gift ideasSteal: Pink Hope soy candle ‘Hope’-Lily of the valley. These 300g soy candles come in 3 pretty scents ‘Hope’-Lily of the Valley (which is perfect for Mother’s day, as they normally bloom in May and they are May’s ‘Birth flower’), ‘Courage’- Gardenia and ‘Inspire’-Jasmine.
$14.95 each (300g candle) from Pink Hope, 100% of the proceeds from each sale goes to the Pink Hope charity! (International shipping Available)

Splurge: Peter Alexander Fudge Brownie Limited Edition Glasshouse candle. I smelt this candle a couple of weeks ago, it smells amazing! Exactly like brownies, chocolatey and a little nutty…”features top notes of coconut, middle notes of cream, buttery roasted nuts and almond, and base notes of chocolate and fudge. ”
$42.90 Available exclusively at Peter Alexander stores (Aus only)

Macaron Baking Kit

mothers day gift ideas

Steal: Macaron baking kit. This set contains a macaron baking sheet, spatula, balloon whisk, palette knife, piping bag and 10mm piping nozzle. Great value for the price, just find a easy to follow recipe online and off you go! Not sure if the whisk is necessary (it’s easier and quicker to use an electric mixer), but still handy to have.
$15 from The Reject Shop,Available in-store from Thurs 2nd May, 2013. (Aus Only)

Splurge:
Mastrad Macaron baking set- Cookbook included. The set also contains macaron baking sheet, sturdy silicone piping bag, bag stand, 6 nozzles and other accessories. The Cookbook includes 30 different sweet and savory recipes to try. I think the bag stand is a great idea, as filling piping bags can be difficult. There’s even a brush for cleaning the piping bag (I know how much of a pain they can be to clean!)
$59.95 from Howards Storage World and $49.99USD from Shopmastrad.com. (US/Canada)

Perfume

mothers day gift ideas

Steal: The Body Shop Amazonian Wild Lily perfume oil 15ml. The Body Shop recently released five new fragrances. While the Madagascan Vanilla flower was my favourite, Amazonian Wild Lily was my mum’s, so I thought it was worth a mention. The body shop perfume oils are great for mum’s that want a scent that will last longer and don’t normally wear a lot of perfume (unlike my mum! haha)
$19.95 each 15ml bottle from The Body Shop and $12USD The Body Shop USA

Splurge: Valentino Valentia gift set. I absolutely adore this fragrance! It is a strong and elegant scent, but not over powering. It smells expensive, that’s for sure! The set includes a 100ml Body Lotion and 50ml Eau de Parfum.
$130 from Myer (available from Wed 1st May, 2013) and $112USD from Nordstrom

 

There’s some of my picks for Mothers Day gift ideas. I will be doing a few more Mother’s Day posts over the next two weeks (some DIY, Baking etc.)
