Mother's Day Gift Guide with Buttercrane Shopping Centre, Newry

Now I'm sure you have ALL REMEMBERED that Mother's Day is this Sunday 11th March and I'm going to assume that you all have ventured out and done your shopping already but for those of you who, like me, is still yet to find something special for their beloved mother, never fear.  I've spent my day searching the shops and have come up with my Mother's Day Gift Guide that's not only lovely for your mum, but lovely on your pocket!  Need some inspiration?  Well here we go!


First stop.  Boots.  We all know Boots is a fantastic shop for when you're gift shopping and one thing they do splendidly is Gift Sets and an endless supply of gift sets at that.  So for you guys, I picked out this little Ted Baker number.  It's pretty, its pink and value for money.  My mum and I are basically the same person when it comes to things like this,  I know if I'll like it, she'll definitely like it.

Can you go wrong with Jewellery? Hell no and Argento has something for everyone, not only in brands but also in budget.  From a selection of Swarovski, Nomination, Olivia Burton, Close, Karma, I could go on and on, each with their own sparkly appeal but the brand that really caught my eye was August Woods.  When it comes to jewellery, I prefer something minimal and simplistic and with August Woods having pieces that cater for everyones taste, it is its versatility that makes it a fantastic present.  At a price point between £10 - £50 including some cute gift sets, you'll find the perfect gift.

Skincare.  Skincare.  Skincare.  Something that we rarely buy ourselves but if gifted to us, we are over the moon!  I love skincare and I know I should probably use it more, hence I spent my time running in and out the likes of boots, superdrug and the body shop, sampling everything!

I've heard a lot about this range from Superdrug and with reviews being positive.  It is one that will be going into my shopping basket.  Vitamin C is said to brighten the skin and help sort out uneven skin tones so this product is a dream for me. And as I said before, if I like it, I know my mum would love it!

  • Superdrug - Superdrug Vitamin C Orange Peel Jam Mask 50ml £4.99
  • Superdrug Vitamin C Eye Cream 15ml £4.99
  • Superdrug Vitamin C Booster 30ml £4.99

The Perfume Shop

On my instagram stories on Monday morning, I asked you guys if you were Floral or Fruity?  In the end Fruity scored 57% and Floral scored 43%!  I am with the majority on this one but it turns out that Sarah Jessica Parker is a little bit of everything!  

'The inspiration behind Sarah Jessica Parker's first scent Lovely was her love of layering scents. What became of this inspiration is a feminine and timeless signature scent for woman of all ages.'

With this gift set, I'm thinking delicious scents, something that looks pretty on any dresser and of course, value for money!

Yankee Candle

Who's mum doesn't love some home decor?  Especially in the form of scented candles with cute insta worthy accessories.  If you know Yankee Candle, then you know that everything comes in various different sizes so you can always get something that works within your budget.  My Choice?  I've gone for this gold accented jar lantern that will enhance any room especially when paired with the dreamiest scented candle in the world, Summer Scoop!  I have this candle for my bedroom and it really is delicious.  You could nearly eat it. (Disclaimer*** - Please don't eat the candles.  You'll feel grim.  I bet they don't taste as good as they smell.). Just light it up, sit it on the fireplace and enjoy.

Yankee Candle - Simply Pastel - Medium Jar Lantern £19.99 // Summer Scoop - Medium Jar £19.99

What better way is there to let your mum know she's the best mum ever than with an absolutely humongous balloon!  Saying that, I think I was enjoying more than Mum.  Well then there you go, buy your mum balloons but you get all the fun!  It's a win win really because we all know... it's the thought that counts!
