Wait – Mother’s Day is this Sunday?! Gift Guide

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Bristol chapter.

I think I’m probably not alone in saying that, now that I’m a student, unless something is reported on the Daily Mail Online or there’s a quiz about it on Buzzfeed, I probably don’t know it’s happening. About a week ago, one of my housemates asked me when Mother’s Day was, and I replied that I was pretty sure it was in May (my bad).

It’s still not too late to send a gift, though, and here are a few ideas:

#1 Himalayan Detox Bath Salts £10 

Help her forget the stress of having children.

#2 Nuxe 24hr Moisturising Body Lotion £10.66 

Because French mothers are #flawless – escentual.com is currently offering discounts on all French pharmacy products.

#3 White Tea and Jasmine Scented Candle £12.45 

A handmade candle is a nod to the days of your art class gifts of yore.

#4 Heart Shaped Cheddar £11.95 (also available at Better Foods on Whiteladies Road) 

Well, my mother thinks these are pretty great…

#5 A Chocolate Selection

These Lindor Milk Truffles are perfect for any chocolate lover.

#6 Flowers! 

What mother wouldn’t be proud to receive a beautiful bouquet from her beautiful offspring?
