Mothers Day Gift Guide 2015



I'm really fortunate to be shown some of the latest and greatest products arriving on the market.  There are so many innovative brands out there doing some amazing things!  I've pulled together seven of the best Mothers Day gift ideas to help narrow down your search for the perfect Mothers day gift...

La Mav Organic Skin Science
I'd been in a skin care rut for quite some time.  I'd been using the same brand for the past 10 years and felt it just wasn't working for me anymore but I wasn't sure where or how to look for a new range to try.  Thankfully, a La Mav Anti-Ageing Pack landed on my door step for me to try and it must have meant to be because I love it!  After trialling this range for two weeks my skin is visibly clearer, smoother and more hydrated.  La Mav products are 100% plant based, certified organic and cruelty free.  The La Mav Anti-Ageing Pack includes Bio VA5 Wrinkle Smoothing Day Crème (this beautiful product is my favourite), Antioxidant Rich Nightly Repair Nectar (this smells sensational!), Bio A7 Firming Eye Lotion (awarded "Best Eye Cream" of 2010 by Nature & Health Magazine) and Bio A7 Firming Eye Lotion (described as natures Botox!  Need I say more???).  Products are available individually or the Anti-Ageing Pack retails for $119.95 and is available from Vanilla Bloom and participating Health 2000 Stores.


Allan Scott Cecilia Brut NV
This elegant bottle of bubbles is a beautiful tribute to Catherine Cecilia Scott - wife of winemaking founder Allan Scott and mother to their three children.  According to daughter Victoria, Catherine is "an avid bubbles fan" (as am I!) so it's apt that this carefully balanced blend of sparkling Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes should be released in time for Mothers Day.  RRP$29 and is available from Glengarry's and www.allanscott.com.


Manuka Biotic Naturally Nourishing Hand Cream
Most Mums will suffer dry, cracked hands at one time or another.  With all the hot water, constant washing, laundry and exposure to numerous chemicals and detergents it's an unavoidable occupational hazard.  Manuka Biotic have introduced their Naturally Nourishing Hand Cream with anti-inflammatory manuka oil, antiseptic calendula oil, antimicrobial kanuka oil plus vitamin e, cucumber extract and olive oil for moisturising and conditioning.  Free from parabens, PEG's and added colourings and fragrances, the Manuka Biotic Naturally Nourishing Hand Cream is perfect for all skin types including sensitive and chronically dry, and will leave your hands feeling soft and smooth all day long.  RRP$19.99 is available from all Health 2000 stores.
 
One of the first things that went out the window when I became a stay at home Mum was salon hair care products.  Suddenly my hair was no longer a top priority (the sacrifices we Mums make huh!).  So the opportunity to care for my hair with a salon range would be welcomed with open arms!  System Professional by Wella has created LuxeOil was created to transform dry, distressed and damaged hair (which is me too a tee!).  Everyday my hair gets knotted up on top of my head.  Sounds like a good cut and this brilliant sounding range would go a long way to soothing my damaged tresses.  Starting at RRP$34.00, there are five beautiful products in the SP LuxeOil range to rehydrate, rebuild and restore your well deserving Mums hair.  Available at salons nationwide.


Give the gift of a great hair day this Mothers Day with VS Sassoon 3Q High Performance Dryer.  As mentioned above, my hair totally gets overlooked in the care of my smaller family members.  It generally gets knotted up on top of my head (both wet and dry).  But the VS Sassoon 3Q High Performance Dryer is very appealing for this time poor Mumma.  The 3Q's stand for Quick (up to 70% faster than your standard dryer), Quiet (up to 40% less noise than your standard dryer) and Quality (up to 10x longer life than your standard dryer) plus with high ionic conditioning to eliminate static and frizz.  The VS Sassoon 3Q High Performance Dyer is also lightweight (only 480gm for my pathetically weak little wrists!).  Sounds perfect!  Just what I need to give my hair the attention it so desperately needs!  RRP$239.99 and is available from Harvey Norman and Noel Leeming.
I'd never say no to the gift of clothes on Mothers Day (or any other day of the year for that matter!).  And I'd be totally confident with husband choosing anything for me from Witchery.  Witchery's White Shirt Collection is a perfect gift because not only is everything in the range is beautiful and stylish but you'll be supporting the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.  100% of all gross profits from sales of the Witchery White Shirt Collection go to the OCRF and its vital research of an early detection of ovarian cancer.  I was under the impression that a pap smear was genealogically all encompassing but I was stunned to learn that ovarian cancer was not detected with this test.  So this is a Mothers day gift that will continue to reach far and wide beyond your original purchase.

Whether you're surprising your Mum with a SodaStream machine of her own or your planning on using your own SodaStream machine to create a refreshing cocktail, mocktail or infused sparkling water - SodaStream is the perfect way to add a little sparkle to your Mums special day with both the traditional flavours or the new Free range which is free from high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, colours and flavours.  There are recipes online for a cucumber & mint fizz, strawberry daiquiri and even a rejuvenating SodaStream facial!  What a multipurpose piece of equipment!
