Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2015

If you’re a last minute person like me, here are some last minute Mother’s Day gifts I’m sure your mum would love! Whenever I post these guides, I always keep my mum in mind. She is the most difficult person to buy for! If my sister & I ask her if there’s anything she has her eye on, she would always say no. She is the most selfless person I know & she is so independent – if she likes anything, she’ll just buy it herself.

With that in mind, I am sure these gifts will please even the most difficult of mums to buy for!

Glasshouse Candles
Each year, Glasshouse & McGrath’s Foundation release a limited edition Birds of a Feather scent for Mother’s Day. This year, it’s Pink Sorbet, described as a blend of grapefruit, watermelon & lemon. It also comes in a neon pink jar and would make a great storage container once you’ve used the candle. The price is slightly higher than the regular range ($42.95 v $39.95) but 5% of the the RRP (minus GST) will be donated to the McGrath’s Foundation. With the price tag, they are a slight splurge & definitely something my mum wouldn’t buy for herself.

If Pink Sorbet doesn’t float your boat, Glasshouse also has other amazing scents available in their range with my personal favourites being Tahaa, Rio De Janeiro & Montego Bay.

Smells like cherry blossoms, this cute bubble bar bubbles up well & has a refreshing ocean-like scent. Great for mum to take a relaxing bubble bath!

Hand Creams
My mum is addicted to hand creams. She goes through them like crazy so I always like to ensure that she has a never ending supply of hand creams. Lanolips has 3 hand creams available:

Lanolips Antibacterial Hand Cream

Lanolips Antibacterial Hand Cream

Antibacterial Hand Cream ($15.95/50ml) – this hand cream is great for everyday cleanliness as it works as both a hand sanitiser, instantly killing 99.9% of germs but with added hydration with the aloe vera & lanolin meaning no dry hands no matter how many times this hand cream is applied.

Lanolips Intense Hand Balm

Lanolips Intense Hand Balm

Intense Hand Balm ($15.95/50ml) – as its name suggests, this is more of a heavy duty hand cream if extreme dryness is a concern.

Lanolips Everyday Hand Balm

Lanolips Everyday Hand Balm

Everyday Hand Balm ($22.95/50ml)  – a great everyday hand cream aimed at maintaining everyday softness.

Lanolips products are available online, Priceline, David Jones, Terry White chemists, & Mecca.

Molton Brown Beautiful Hands Gift Set

Molton Brown Beautiful Hands Gift Set

For a beautiful hand cream gift set, you can’t go past the beautiful packaging of Molton Brown. This year’s limited edition gift set, Beautiful Hands ($45), contains 3 beautiful scented hand creams – orange & bergamot, gingerlily, & rhubarb & rose. You can purchase the trio online, and at Myer and David Jones.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea range*

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Butter

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Butter

The Body Shop products make great gifts, but I thought I’d focus on the new Fuji Green Tea range. The range is infused with green tea leaves from the Mount Fuji region, for healthier, smoother & softer skin. With Winter coming up, the body butter ($23.95/200ml) would make a great gift. I love The Body Shop’s body butters as they don’t feel too heavy once applied but they do provide long-lasting moisture protection.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Scrub

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Scrub

The body scrub ($29.95/250ml) would also make a great gift (maybe create your own gift pack?!) with Winter coming up. The body scrub contains little microbeads for gentle all over body exfoliation and smells very refreshing!

If creating your own gift packs doesn’t appeal to you, The Body Shop has got your back. There are 3 pre-made gift packs ranging from $13.95 – $84.95.
