It may be Friday night but there's still plenty of time to get a little Mother's Day gift inspiration for those of you who are stuck on what to buy. Below you'll find 17 products, all of which can be found easily in your local department stores, boots, supermarkets and of course a little Lush has been thrown in too. How will you be spending this Sunday? Lucy xx

Rituals Sweet Orange & Cedar Wood Shower Gel (£8.50)*
When I started blogging, beauty boxes were the new thing. Everyone started raving about Rituals after their foaming shower gels appeared in a couple boxes. How I've left it this long to try out the brand I don't know. If your mum loves to pamper but perhaps lacks the time for long soaks in the bath, any of the Rituals Shower Gels will add a touch of luxury to her morning shower routine. You only need the smallest amount, the clear gel turns into a rich, creamy lather which carries the most beautiful of scents. Sweet Orange & Cedar really makes for a great morning refresher.

Rituals Sweet Orange & Cedar Wood Body Scrub (£19.50)*
Now I don't know about you but my Mum loves a body scrub. Consisting of a luxurious blend of oils and organic sugar, Rituals have created the perfect sugar scrub. Designed to nourish and revitalise the driest of skins, this scrub has soon become a firm favourite of mine. Paired with the foaming Shower Gel, the scent lasts not only on your skin but also leaves the bathroom smelling incredible for hours.

Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter (£6.95)
Lemony Flutter is actually one of my Mum's holy grail products. If you're stuck on what to buy your Mum this Mother's Day why not select a few products to give your Mum a well deserved manicure this Sunday. Lemony Flutter is an ultra thick cream, which is best used over night on cuticles, hands, elbows and also happens to smell just like lemon curd.

Lush Floating Island Bath Oil (£2)
Each year Lush release a whole collection of goodies for treating our Mum's, you can find singular products and beautifully wrapped gift sets online or in-store.

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Line
Who wouldn't want a piece of the hottest celebrity beauty collaboration? I recently shared my first thoughts of Gwen Stefani's line with Urban Decay, with it all being faultless. Both myself & my Mum have loved using the products, with the eyeshadow palette being perfect for any beauty obsessed Mum's out there, not to mention the ultimate nude lip duo - Ex-Girlfriend.

Champney's Heavenly Days
If you're wanting your Mum to take time out and relax, Champney's Heavenly Days is the perfect range of products to do so. We're all fans of the Heavenly Days collection - even as far as my Dad. He has his own bottle of Sleep Pillow Mist on his bedside table. The relaxing collection features the classic scent of 'british blooms', lavender, geranium and calming chamomile, enabling you to grab a well earned moment of bliss. I'd recommend the Pillow Mist, while some sprays can be overly strong on the lavender, Champneys have created the perfect blend. The Sleep Temple Balm is another firm favourite, I picked this out for my Mum at Christmas who also picked one up for my stocking & uses hers most days. If I'm feeling anxious I'll always apply to my temples. The Massage Oil is also one not to miss, not to mention you can find many other products in the line such as; a diffuser, bubble bath, candle, shower cream, butter souffle & gift sets.

Armani Diamonds Violet EDP 50ml (£38) & Rose EDT 50ml (£38)
The latest Armani Diamond additions, Violet & Rose are a fresh take on the ever so popular original. Having picked up these two in the sales, either scents would make the perfect gift for Mother's Day. Having worried they'd be overly floral, they really aren't. Rose has top notes of rose, raspberry and blackcurrant while Violet has notes of raspberry, lychee and passion fruit, along with a smooth chocolaty base. Descriptions really don't do these two fragrances any justice.

Sensationail Starter Kit in Pink Chiffon (£69.99)
Having featured Sensationail on LW in past gift guides it's not surprise to see it again. With Mum's always on the go why not treat her this Mother's Day to her own At Home Gel kit, inside you'll find everything you need to give your Mum a manicure this weekend, not to mention save her a tonne on future salon visits and time taken out her busy schedule. Sensationail is fool proof and quick!

Bomb Cosmetics Little Hotties (£ 6.99)
This may surprise some of you, having not enjoyed the bath products from Bomb Cosmetics but I've become quite the fan of their Little Hotties. If your Mum loves her candles why not create your very own fragrance mix. Bomb Cosmetics can be found in all sorts of places, usually small gift shops or home ware stores. Little Hotties are small wax shapes, with so many scents to decide over. You can fill a box up with just one fragrance or as many, it's basically pick 'n mix for adults.

Lindt Lindor Strawberries & Cream (£4)
Lindor Truffles are an essential when it comes to gift giving in our family, don't you just love it when the Strawberries & Cream option returns. The luxurious white chocolate truffles have tiny pieces of strawberry & the smoothest of centres.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate 30ml (£37)* 
With the harsh winds of winter sticking around it's not surprising many of us are struggling with drier skin. I can't recommend the Midnight Recovery Concentrate enough, it's an absolute miracle in a bottle.  The replenishing nighttime oil helps to recover radiance by morning, is paraben free and 99.8% organic.

Bronnley Cosmic Bloom EDT 50ml (£35)* 
You can't go wrong with fragrances when it comes to buying for Mum's right? Over the years you'll know her classic scent, so why not pick switch it up a little? Cosmic Bloom has been sat in the spare room for both of us to use when getting ready in the morning. The EDT from Bronnley sits in the Eclectic Elements line, featuring notes of bergamot, cloud berry, rhubarb, black violet, freesia, rose musk, sandalwood and vanilla. Having never ventured into Bronnley before, I'm pleasantly surprised with just how long lasting the EDT is, not to mention how dreamy the scent is. If your Mum adores citrus-floral fragrance she'll adore this with spring on its way.

  1. Lovely picks! Lemony Flutter is one of my faves and it quite literally smells good enough to eat (my Mum also loves it). Also, you can never go wrong with Lindt! x
