So it’s been a while… Sorry about that…
But I am back, feeling springy and have a laaaaavly Birthday gift guide for you. I have tailored this one towards my fabulous Mum as it’s her birthday at the end of the month but it would be suitable for any one who loves all things girly.
Spring is one of my favourites for gifting, I love the in-between seasons and it’s kind of like a ‘preparation’ for the warmer or colder weather so you can buy people things to get ready for the season ahead. For Spring/Summer I love picking up new fragrances, skincare and makeup. I definitely find myself reaching for particular scents each season and love finding new fresh, bright scents for the warmer months.
The first scent I picked up is Jimmy Choo Blossom. I had a sniff of this when I was shopping a while back and have had it on the list of favourites for a while now! It’s such a pretty scent. The bottle itself is super pretty and it definitely smells very floral light and pretty. It’s one of those perfumes you can wear both day and night which I love as it can really become a ‘you’ scent.’
I also chose one of my mum’s favourites scents which is Si Passion by Georgio Armarni, this is totally gorgeous, not one I’ve ever really gone for but every time my mum wears it I am like ‘What are you wearing?!’ it’s absolutely beautiful, such a pretty scent. She’s been in love with original Si for a long time but since having this she’s been wearing it almost every day and I am totally obsessed with it, I might have to pick one up for myself!
For skincare I thought I’d pick the Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Moisture Cream as it’s one of my mum’s favourites and I feel like it’s such a staple skincare product to have in the cupboard! L’Oreal has been a popular brand in my mum’s skincare drawer for a long time now so I picked a couple of her faves for her birthday, L’Oreal Revitalift Cica Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream and the L’Oreal Revitalift Laser Renew Anti Aging Super Serum. I always feel super cheeky buying my mum anti age products but she always insists that she loves them- these make such a great combo as well especially before bed time as it gives the serum time to sink in and really get working on the skin.
Lastly she’s been after some little mini hair straighteners for a long time, they’re perfect for people with shorter hair and also for taking on holiday. The BaByliss Pro 200 Nano straighteners come in pink and purple and also come with a little bag to keep them in which is perfect for travelling.
This is such a perfect little selection of products for a birthday gift hamper, I love filling a nice box or bag with some of my mum’s favourite things and some extra little treats! As always I love Fragrance Direct, such an easy and reliable website with some amazing prices for your favourite things! – I have worked with them for over two years now and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about them – these items were very kindly gifted to me but I picked the items and all views are my own!
