All Mums fancy reliving their youths… don’t they? Well I certainly do 😉 I used to spend hours roller booting with my siblings so a pair of these retro styles roller skates would make a perfect gift for me! Can you spot a pair like you used to have? Mine were very similar to these gorgeous colourful Rio Roller Candi Quad Skates, everyone should own a pair!

This Olverum bath oil is a real treat, it is so relaxing, leaves your skin feeling so soft and just feeling lovely. Every Mum (and Dad for that matter) should have a bottle on the side of their bath.

Olverum (true oil) is a unique and luxurious aromatic blend of essential oils.

With just a few drops in your bath, these carefully chosen extracts combine to help ease stress and relax tension in both mind and body, bringing you back to your complete and natural self.

You can purchase Olverum 125ml (enough for 25 baths) for £23.50 and 200ml (enough for 40 baths) for £36.95. After a long day of chasing around after the kids I can highly recommend a long soak in a deep Olverum bath 🙂

The I Am You Are book is full of small affirmations to help you believe how amazing you really are. The words are small, but they are mighty. If you let them, they will allow you to see, accept and believe in all the amazing qualities that make up who you are as a person.

I Am You Are is beautifully designed and delightfully encouraging in a simple and effective way. Plus, its small size means you can carry around a little dose of inspiration in your handbag.

This is a really cute way of making someone feel wonderful and at £4.99 it won’t break the bank.

    All fabulous suggestions for Mother’s Day… thanks for sharing your top picks! For me, it would have to be the mini Opi nail polishes, can you ever have too many colours?

    Wow – those roller skates!! Lots of happy memories but I fear they would land me in A&E these days – I dont bounce as well as I did at 11! I will settle for lovely chocs and bath bits instead I think, much safer!
