Last minute at buying Mothers day gifts? If you struggle to get gifts for your Mum on Mothers day, then this blog post is for you. I honestly dread days like this as I spend 3 weeks saying I’ll buy something, and never do until last minute. So I decided on a thing I like to call the ‘Pamper Hamper’. The Pamper Hamper is a bag filled with little gifts for your Mum. A bag filled with loads of little things so she can relax and chill out for that one day.
A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND.
My Mum, if you don’t know me personally has gone through a lot. In my eyes my Mum is not only my best friend but the strongest woman I’ll ever know. The things she’s been through in her life at her young age still shocks me a little. Obviously growing up around my Mum being sick a lot, I took it upon myself to grow up a lot faster. Yes, seeing someone you love being ill sucks, but it’s made us all a lot closer. Not just my Mum, Dad and I. But also our whole family.
So, I decided that what my Mum needs most in life is a relaxing day. A day that she can sit at home, and use this little bag I’ve put together. Putting together a ‘pamper hamper’ isn’t hard at all. So, I thought I’d show you what I bought and give you a little inspiration on a last minute gift guide.
What I included.
Bubble bath, nail polish, face wipes, DVD, diffuser, cosy socks and a little bottle of wine.
These are things I know my Mum uses, and will use. I know when she isn’t feeling well she runs herself a bath. I know that she removes her makeup with makeup wipes.. which drives me INSANE. I know she only likes nude shades on her nails. I know that a good soppy real life movie is her all time favourite. I know she likes ankle socks instead of fluffy socks as she gets too hot. I know we don’t light candles in the house, so a diffuser had to do. And lastly, every Mum needs a glass of wine to wind down. I couldn’t not put that in there.
So, if you have no time at all to grab something for Mothers day this is easy yet a little personal. Please let me know if you do use this idea! I’d love to see what you come up with!
Lastly, thank you Mum. For making me who I am today. For making me a stronger person and teaching me not to take anyone for granted. I am super proud to have a mother like you. Who most people I know don’t have a bad word to say about you. You may have a little too much wine on nights out, but that’s ok, as I had to take after somebody, right! I love you, and the little team we have. Dad, Spencer and I are super lucky to have such an inspirational person in our lives.
