Mother's Day Gift Guide 2016!

Hello Everyone!

*This post contains PR samples, all opinions are my own :)

As Mother's Day is now on the horizon, I thought it would be fun to put together a 'Mother's Day Gift Guide'. I'm all too aware of the struggle of finding a gift for a Mum who already has everything,
so I thought this might be of help to some of you.

So, if you're on the look out for a lovely gift for someone special, here are my top picks...



Chocolate Hamper
If you're shopping for a chocoholic, Prestige Hampers have THE perfect gift!
The chocolate desire hamper from Prestige Hampers is packed with chocolaty goodness. This would make a beautiful (and very thoughtful) gift for those with a sweet tooth. Hamper gifts are also great because they can be delivered directly to the repentance's door, which I imagine would be a wonderful surprise!
 Inside the handmade wicker tray, you'll find:
  •  Mercers Chocolate Sauce
  • Hamlet Chocolate Assortment
  • Lily O' Briens Sticky Toffee Chocolates
  • Simply Delicious Butter Fudge
  • Shortbread House of Edinburgh Choc Chip Mini Biscuits
  • Beech's milk Chocolate Bar
  • Cole's Triple Chocolate Pudding
  • Chocolate Shop
  • Belgian Creme Brulee
  • Mercers salted caramel sauce
  • Farmhouse Biscuits Salted Caramel & Choc Chip
  • Monty Bo Jangles Cookie Truffles  
  As you can see, there are lots of chocolate-y goodies.
Prestige Hampers offer named-day delivery and next-day delivery is also available with most products. 
If you're looking for non-chocolate hampers, Prestige Hampers have a huge selection including cheese hampers, sweet hampers, alcohol hampers, pamper hampers, dog hampers, cat hampers, chocolate bouquets, selection hampers and fruit baskets!

P.S  The lovely people that work at Prestige are so helpful and they offer excellent customer service.
Every time that I've dealt with them, they have always gone above and beyond to make sure that everything is perfect.

Gardening Planner-
If you're looking for a gift for a keen gardener this Mother's Day, this gardening journal/planner from the lovely website shop 'What You Sow' would be the perfect, thoughtful and practical gift! This planner/journal includes little pockets which are perfect for storing seeds and other garden-related little bits and bobs and there are also pages and pages of lined paper, plain paper and square-lined paper- so there is lots of room for plotting and planning! Aside from being an all-around adorable gift, I'd imagine that any keen gardener would find this pretty planner super useful as we move into spring.
On the What You Sow website, it says...

 "Any keen gardener will enjoy keeping note of gardening tips and plans in this pretty Garden Journal from The Thoughtful Gardener range. With a handy expanding file divided into seasons, the journal includes; square,dot, graph, plain & lined papers."

On 'What You Sow', there are lots of sweet gardening gifts, all of which are really different from the normal garden-related gifts that you see everywhere else, and to top it all off, there is also a free printable vegetable themed mother's day wrapping paper and gift tags available for you to print off which I think is truly the most adorable thing ever!

Cookies
Custom Cookie Co are a brand that several bloggers have already raved about. On the oh-so-cute website, you can purchase hand-iced cookies for any occasion, whether the cookies be a gift, promotional cookies, wedding favors or even a 'just because', there is always an excuse to buy these super cute biscuits.
The cookies that I received for this gift guide were of course Mother's Day-themed. Inside the gift box were a mix of chocolate, gingerbread and vanilla cookies, all of which are super buttery and rich and each cookie has been topped beautifully with pastel-coloured icing. You also have the chance to add a personalized message to the gift tag on the box and since the cookies are completely hand made, you can make a special request to completely personalize them. On the website, it says-

"Hand decorated letter and flower cookies presented in a premium gift box. Gift box contains a ribboned gift tag bearing your special message."

All in all, if you know somebody that has a sweet tooth and you'd like to gift them something thoughtful and a little out of the ordinary, I'd highly recommend Custom Cookie Co. Their service was second to none and the cookies themselves are soooo delicious!
 They also have a Youtube channel which have some of the sweetest (he he, see what I did there) videos you've ever seen! Check it out HERE

Bath and Shower Gel 
If you're looking for a pamper gift this Mother's Day, then you should go ahead and check out TreacleMoon. I've featured TreacleMoon bath and shower gels on Blossoming Daydreams a countless amount of times and that is because I blooming-well love them! From the adorable scent names to the sweet little passage on the front of each bottle, TreacleMoon really have thought of it all.
The item that I think is particularly fitting for Mother's Day is 'Gentle Powder Love' it's a calming powdery scent which is (nostalgically for Mums) inspired by the iconic scent of baby powder. Also, TreacleMoon is vegetarian and vegan friendly.

"Always remember that true beauty begins from the heart..."

I think that a bottle of this teamed with a few other pampering gifts (there are more pamper ideas further on in this guide) would make give Mums the ultimate downtime kit!

Lip Balm
Another little pamper gift that I think would be a super cute 'stocking filler' is Balmi Lip Balm.
They come in a range of flavours and colours.
Balmi Say...

 "We’re just like you. We are passionate about looking good, feeling great and being cool."

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Balmi make my all-time favourite lip balms. I love the pastel colours and the range of flavours and most of all I love how moisturising they are. Unlike some other lip balms on the high street, Balmi's vitamin rich balms actually do moisturise the lips.
If you bought lots of little goodies like this to create 'homemade pamper hamper' (Pinterest it for inspiration), you could create the perfect unique and personal gift.

You can purchase Balmi lip balms from boots or directly from the Balmi website.

Flower Bouquet
 A Mother's Day wouldn't be Mother's day without flowers, I decided that I had to include a beautiful bouquet in this gift guide. 
Prestige Flowers have a huge selection of blooms tailored to every occasion you could imagine and if you order by 9pm, the flowers can be delivered to the recipient the very next day.

You can also opt to include a little extra gift to go alongside the flowers such as a vase, cuddly bear, a bottle of wine, occasion balloons, luxury chocolates or a cake! Many of the flower bouquets that are available from Prestige come with a free box of chocolates which I think is such a sweet additional extra.
 I've had the flowers for over a week now and they're still going strong.

I'd highly recommend Prestige Flowers not only for their impeccable customer service, but for their great range of pretty petals!

Letterbox Cake
If your Mum is a fan of cake, then this next gift is PERFECT for her. I'm sure you've all seen and heard of Bakerdays before, they are sooo popular right now. I featured a letterbox cake form Bakerdays on Blossoming Daydreams back in June of last year.

Bakerdays are a cake-making company but they're not just any old company, they came up with (in my opinion) the best idea ever. Bakerdays have invented a cake that is able to fit through a letterbox. This is fab news for anybody who isn't able to personally visit people on their special day. The cake can be
customised / personalised. You can upload a picture that you'd like to have printed onto the top of the cake and you can also choose the contents of the cake, whether it be vanilla, Belgian chocolate, fruit cake or even gluten and wheat free / dairy free.
The Bakerdays website makes it simple to create your own special design of cake. Choose a size and flavour, then add your special message! If you order before 2pm, we can deliver your cake the next working day, virtually anywhere in the UK. All our letterbox cakes come complete with candles and balloons and our large cakes come with cake slicer. - See more at: http://www.bakerdays.com/#sthash.hQaZb9ai.dpuf

I chose the 'Best Mum' cake and I chose the Belgian chocolate filling. It amazed me last time I tried a cake from Bakerdays and it has amazed me again just how good this cake is.
The letterbox cake arrives in a secure tin with a little packet of love heart sweets. You need to trust me on this one, these cakes are superb quality!
