Gift Ideas from Boots this Mothers Day

I love receiving smellies and one of the places I often go to to buy presents is Boots. This Mothers day they have lots of fabulous products for your mummy!

I was sent a few items to review from their ranges

No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Body Serum 200ml £27

I haven’t used a body serum before so wasn’t sure what to expect. I found the serum was really easy to apply and felt that it absorbed quite quickly into my skin which I liked. I have been using it mainly on my arms and legs and have found that my skin feels softer than it normally does even my husband has noticed!

Soap &Glory Eau De Soap &Glory Original Pink Perfume Spray 50ml £16.50

I loved the packaging of this perfume the box and the actual bottle. I really love the smell, it has a really girly smell, my daughter loved it too and said ‘mummy you smell pretty’, people at work also commented how nice I smelt when I wore it. I would really recommend this perfume as the smell is so nice and it has a great price point!

Boots Exacts Fairtrade Mini Body Butter Collection £7.50

I love these, I love the packaging and love the cuteness of the pots!

My favourite scent was the Almond body butter and found that all the body butters rubbed in well, I think the body butters would be great to take on holiday as found that they all moisturised my skin really well so would be great to hydrated your skin when sunbathing all day.

I think these make a great present especially from your little ones as the gift is cute in my opinion.

Boots have 3 for 2 Mix & Match across selected skincare, hand & body, self tan, indulgent bathing, No7 and vitamins

Active Rainforest Honey Review and Giveaway

I often hear that honey has healing powers so when I was offered to try out this gorgeous gift set in time for Mothers Day I was quite excited.

Mother's Day Gift Pack RRP 15.99

Mums can boost their health and wellbeing inside and out as the Active Rainforest Honey from Chile has not only been shown in studies to possess powerful antibacterial and antiseptic properties, but also has immediate and remarkable moisturising and soothing properties, nourishing the skin.  It has stronger biopotency than Manuka honey and taken directly on a spoon, on toast, or added to cold drinks and food, it tastes great too!

New mums might like to know that recommended use twice daily of the Antiseptic Honey20+ can help to diminish stretch marks and scars.

Who would have thought that honey could have so many uses!

The special edition Active Rainforest Honey Gift Pack is available to buy online at £15.99 from leading vitamins and supplements company Lifeplan at http://www.activehoneycompany.co.uk  and also from selected health food retailers.

I was a bit dubious about trying the antiseptic honey as I was worried that it would be really sticky, I was pleasantly surprised that although it was sticky putting it on, it wasn’t sticky afterwards and smelt quite pleasant. I have been using the antiseptic honey on my stretch marks and it seems to be calming them down!

The honey I gave to my mum to try as she has been using honey for a while now for her health and well being. She said it is nice and has a strong flavour but all in all my mum likes the honey and feels that it is great for her wellbeing.

Tatty Teddy Chocolates Review and Giveaway

I received a box of these gorgeous chocolates to review as an idea for mothers day.

I love the Me to You bear so to receive a box of chocolates with the gorgeous Tatty Teddy on peeping through roses would make me very happy.

My sister took the box of chocolates with her to a baby group of first time mums and they were all impressed with the chocolates.

The selection includes milk, dark and white luxury chocolates with a choice of luscious fillings including golden caramel, almond and marzipan and strawberry parfait.

What we liked about the product

The picture on the box
The generous amount of chocolates
The taste of the chocolates
The packaging will appeal to young children buying their mum a present

What we weren’t so keen on

The cellophane wrap on the front

There wasn’t many negatives as the general consensus was that all the mums at the baby group would be very happy to receive this box of chocolates.

So overall a yummy classic but pleasant present

The Tatty Teddy Chocolates are just £4.99 from selected Tesco stores.

I have 1 box of Tatty Teddy Chocolates to give away
