Christmas Gift Guide | Mums

Tuesday, 22 November 2016

The Christmas adverts are on the telly, and there's Christmas music in the stores. So that means it's time for gift guides! I am so excited to be bringing you THREE gift guides this year, to hopefully make your shopping a little less stressful.

First up is my guide for mums / step mums / nannies - the ladies in the family! Hopefully you'll find something that catches your eye...

(L-R) Illustries Family Album, Nakd Bars, Personalised Mugs, Olverum Bath Oils, Flowers, Guylian Chocolates, Personalised Family Wreath


Since we got married last year I've been obsessed with family name gifts. This fairy light wreath from Create Gift Love is made from maple wood veneer, and is made to order in a workshop in The New Forest. It can be personalised with your family name - "Christmas with the..." or "... Family Christmas" for example, and includes rope so you can hang it wherever you wish!

 Create Gift Love also offer hundreds of beautiful, personalised gifts made from ethically sourced wood, leather and stainless steel. So if the wreath isn't your loved ones style, there's plenty of other products available.


I always love receiving chocolate gifts - they never get boring! High quality chocolatiers Guylian have released three new products this festive season, so why not try them all? Their classic praline Sea Shells have been given an even bigger box (50% bigger to be exact!), so would be a perfect gift if your loved one has a sweet tooth. Don't expect her to share though!


There are so many memories you experience as a family and most you'll never want to forget! These family memory books from Illustries are designed for you to jot down those precious memories - "A snapshot of your family to treasure forever".

There are pages to include the standard information such as family trees, achievements and fun times. But there are also pages for those memories you don't usually think about - family recipes, secrets, awards and even space to jot down what a regular day means to you. It's a truly wonderful gift!


Want to give a sweet treat but keep it healthy too? These Nakd Christmas Pud bars are perfect to pop into a stocking! The festive treat is made with only dates, cashews, raisins and 'natural Christmassy flavouring'; is gluten, wheat and dairy free and suitable for vegans. Why not give them a try!


I think most mums will agree with me that a lovely relaxing bath is the perfect way to end a stressful day. These Olverum Bath Oils are perfect for just that! Made with a unique and luxurious blend of essential oils, they're designed to ease stress and release tension. You don't need to use very much either, so you'll get plenty of relaxing soaks from this sweet gift set.


Personalised gifts are always a winner in my eyes, especially ones that feature the little ones! Mr Nutcase offer a whole range of personalised gifts including cushions, phone cases, towels and the mugs shown below. You pick the photo you want - either a collage or one special picture - and they do the rest! Obviously the quality will depend on the photo you choose, so make sure to pick a good one.


Who doesn't love receiving flowers?! The bouquets available from Appleyard London are simply stunning, and would be the perfect gift for any lady in your life. The luxury bouquets can be delivered 7 days a week, and there's next day delivery if you order by 6.30pm too - perfect if you need a last minute gift! Their Christmas range is beautiful; but also check out the rest of their products.


Thanks for reading, and I hope I gave you some inspiration!

Merry Christmas!
