When I come to organise my Christmas shopping I always find the category of Mum difficult. Either buying for my own Mum or answer the question of ‘what would you like for Christmas?‘. Take my Mum whenever I ask her what she would like for Christmas I am generally met with the ‘whatever’ or ‘anything’ answer – one year she asked me for some new socks so I filled a gift box full of them, strangely she has never asked for socks again.
I’ve gathered a few suggestions of what you could add to your own Christmas wish list or what do your Mum this Christmas…
Microwavable Cream Cozy-Boots
Not wanting to stereotype all Mums but I know I love coming home, taking my shoes off and popping on my slippers. With the colder nights what better way to keep your feet cosy than with a pair of microwavable cream cozy-boots. Scented with lavendar to help relax after a busy day

Cala Lily Amber Earrings
Jewellery is always a classic favourite to buy Mums for Christmas, however this year instead of buying something generic take a look at the Museum Selection to see if you can find something a little more unique.
Theses Cala Lily Amber earrings are a beautiful and I’m sure a welcome addition under the Christmas tree – Cala lilies were a recurrent motif in the work of Art Nouveau designers such as Émile Gallé (1846-1904); a symbol of purity.

I read a post from the Frugal Family on how to do Secret Santa on a budget, one of the gift ideas was a pamper hamper. Creating a special pamper hamper for your Mum would make a fabulous gift and it doesn’t have to cost the earth. Creightons have a range of different pamper products from bath and shower, Sunshine Blonde and Beautiful Brunette shampoo and conditioners to their Squeeky Clean range of body lotion, face scrubs and photo finish moisturiser – the best thing about the Creightons product range is that they are all only £1.00 each! allowing you create a pamper hamper for Mum for under £10.00.
