The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Mums - 2019

**AD - Gifted**

Christmas is next month, can you believe it!? It definitely feels like Christmas has snuck up on me this year. With the kids now back at school after half term I have decided its probably about time I made a start on my Christmas shopping. I even ordered our real Christmas tree over the weekend and took the kids to pick up some new decorations from The Range.

When it comes to buying Christmas gifts we all want to gift the perfect present but it can be hard to find that gift when there are so many things to choose from. Especially when it comes to mums, they are so special to us that finding a gift they will love and show them how much they mean to us can feel overwhelming and impossible.

So I wanted to share with you some great gifts I have found that would be perfect for mums (or nans, sisters, aunties etc) this Christmas to help you with some ideas.

Takenaka Double Bento Box - £32.99

The Bento box is a traditional Japanese style lunch box and is perfect for those mums on the go whether its to take to work or out with the kids. This Daffodil yellow double layer bento box has two separate compartments as well as a hidden fork inside and elastic bank to hold your lunchbox together when transporting it.

The Bento box is also microwave safe so you can use it for hot dishes and just zap in the microwave when needed. It is also dishwasher safe for quick and easy cleaning too.

Feather & Down Sleep Products - RRP Prices Vary

When it comes to sleep, Feather & Down are the masters of getting it right and lets face it, have you ever met a mum who doesn't dream of a good nights sleep!?

They have a range of beautiful gift sets which would make the perfect gift this Christmas and some of my favourites are above. These include the " Gift of Sleep" set which contains a pillow spray and calming candle, the "Bath Oil Duo" which contains two different bath oils one called sweet dreams and the other breathe easy. Both oils transform any bath into a silky smooth bath to help you relax. The final gift set is the "Perfect Sleep" set which contains a pillow spray, roll on and eye mask to help you sleep all of your worries away.

All of these sets contain the Feather & Down blend of Lavender and Camomile essential oils to help encourage a sense or calm, tranquillity and an all together better, more relaxed nights sleep.

What's better than a bottle of delicious prosecco for Christmas? Well how about a bottle of delicious prosecco with a very cool personalised label!?

St Moriz Tanning Products - RRP Prices Vary

We all know someone who loves to tan, all year round! So giving the gift of a beautiful tan, especially in the winter when sun is definitely sparse is always a winner. The St Moriz "Clearly Radiant" gift set contains the medium/dark tanning mousse and a high shine lip gloss to complete the sun kissed look. 

Of course if you want the best finish to a tan you need a tanning mitt so if you are buying your mum (or friend) tan for Christmas then a mitt is a must to go with it.
