If there is one person I don’t mind pushing the boat out for it is my mum. She does an incredible amount for me regardless of my age and I am excited to be heading away next week for a wee holiday with her and the whole family to celebrate her turning the big 60 ( and me turning 30!) I usually like to go with the pampering element for a gift for her as it is not something she would splurge on for herself and this year it is L’Occitane that has caught my eye for providing me with a gift that is doesn’t break the bank. A little something that looks incredibly pretty as well as smelling divine is just what I am after!
I have used a variety of their products over the years and usually always have a miniature of their hand cream in my bag at all times which always feels like a little piece of luxury, so my first thought is to treat mum to a set of these as she suffers really badly from sore and tight hands. I actually first received these as a gift myself and I found it such a lovely pressie that I know she would love them.
Mum loves to have scents around the house and in recent years she has dabbled with diffusers instead of candles but a lot of the cheaper ones don’t have the lasting aroma that you look for. Having popped in store and given this verbena set a sniff; I can say I think it is gorgeous and could be a winner (although I now just want it for myself….)
The mothership loves lavender and relaxing notes so the Lavender gift set feels like the ideal gift for her. I like that it contains a little of everything from soap to shower gel and hand cream. The packaging is relaxing just looking at it!
Talking of packaging, I kind of want this pamplemousse and rhubarb set just for the beautiful box!! A combination I can’t say I have ever seen before, I am dying to give this fruity set a go.
So many top choices for treating my mum where I know she will be over the moon with her gift and I know she is getting some luxurious quality. Definitely just what she deserves!
