Christmas Gift Guide: Presents For Mum


1. Wallet / 2. REN gift set / 3. Diptyque candle / 4. Philosophy Grace set / 5. Sewing basket / 6. Michael Kors nail polish / 7. Laptop case

This is the last 2013 Christmas gift guide from me! I've enjoyed putting these together, and I know the blog world is filled with various other gift guides but I have to remember that not everyone is an avid reader like I am! Some people might only read one or two blogs, and others come from Google from searching for said gift guides, so either way, if it helps someone get cool gifts for others, then that's all that matters. Personally, I love gift guides because I am not the best shopper at this time of year and I need all the help I can get. So stressful!

My mum's present is the only one I've got to buy this week, and I actually think my sister's got it covered. We only discussed it last night but this year, she's getting one present from the whole family because we're clubbing our money together to get her a Kitchenaid mixer (she doesn't read my blog so there's no chance of her finding out), but if that falls through, then I think I am going to get her the Cath Kidston sewing basket.

I don't know about you but my mum is such a difficult person to buy gifts for, she has got everything she wants! The key thing when buying for my mum is that I want it to be useful, something she will definitely use, so the quest for the perfect present doesn't often go well! I do try to save up to buy really good gifts (Mum deserves it!!) but I usually end up buying something she's about to run out of, like the Elemis skincare she uses on a daily basis, or L'occitane moisturisers. These are what I would classify as a boring gift because no imagination goes in to it, but I know she'd definitely use it. Since I've been quite organised this year, I've actually spent the past couple of weeks browsing for something good. 

How's your Christmas shopping coming along? Are you all set, or are you one of those who leave it until last minute? Loads of things are on sale so if you're a last minute shopper, you're going to get some bargains!

  5. This is an absolutely gorgeous guide, I'd kind of like all of these presents for myself haha!
    I see so many gift guides that are the same so it's nice to have something a little different xxx

  6. Great picks! My mom is the easiest person to shop for my on my list, as she's happy with just about anything. However, my dad is a completely different story...
