My Top Gift Ideas For Mother’s Day…

And I should mention, dear husband, that my birthday is just a month after Mother’s Day, so feel free to revisit this list of items I am lusting after! 

So without further adieu…..

Here are my top picks for Mother’s Day! In no particular order…… really, no not really but anyway….. 

iPhone 7 in Rose Gold, 32GB minimum storage please!

As my blog has grown, my phone has become an essential business tool! My 16GB iPhone 6 is simply not big enough to store all the data, info and apps that I use on a daily basis!

An Alex & Marla Handbag

I’ve spent a small fortune on handbags in the past, they all break or look ratty after a while. It’s time to invest in high quality bag that is both functional and timeless. I am IN LOVE with this one from Alex & Marla

It’s big enough to carry all the things I carry around with me on a daily basis, I love that it zips closed, because I travel a lot for business so my handbag is often shoved in the overhead compartment and I need something that can close properly. And the quality. Oh it’s just so beautiful. Cupcake Mummy won one a while ago and when we met up a few weeks ago when I was in Cape Town, it immediately caught my attention and I have been coveting it ever since! 

I also really desperately need a new laptop bag!

Again because I travel all the time and while my current one is beautiful, it’s just not very functional! The only thing I can fit in it, aside from said laptop is a tiny notebook. I travel with a lot of stuff and need a laptop bag that offers me more space.

I do love this one from, The Ladies Business Bag from Wild & Free! It would totally go with my new handbag! 🙂

But I’d be more than happy to “settle” for a Lou Harvey laptop bag too! They are so gorgeous and vibrant and functional and I trust the quality of the bags from Lou Harvey having been a fan for years and used a number of their products!

Then, I’ve been coveting these shoes from Tilla & Jacob for months now, I am a little obsessed, I’d own a pair in every design if I could! How gorgeous are these Chocolaticas? 

Then, on to more practical gift ideas…..

I recently bought myself a Romos Power Bank. It’s FANTASTIC! Like a total lifesaver! Especially with all the power failures and when I’m travelling. And the one I bought can charge up to 2 devices at the same time and about 10 times over, fantastic right? Only problem is, I bought such a large one, it’s like carrying a lead brick in my handbag! I’d love a smaller one for when I travel that doesn’t feel like I’m carrying around a 10kg sack of potatoes with me everywhere I go!

And lastly, on the beauty front……

Body Treats

Has the greatest anti aging oil ever! I have used this product numerous times and loved it! It smells amazing and feels luxurious on my skin. With winter upon us, it’s time to add more oil based products into my daily regime and I’d love to use this product again! 

Lastly on my wish list is the Tissue Oil Body Caviar from Beauty Factory! 

And this I want for the same reason as the Body Treats Anti-Age Oil. With winter here, this is such a fantastic product to deeply moisturize my body. I love using it, I love how as you massage the caviar into your skin, the beads burst open and release tissue oil! It is heavenly!

And then lastly…..

If you can’t give me this:

Then I’d love a lazy, beer and wine infused lunch, under the trees, next to the swimming pool at the Black Horse Brewery!

We Visited The Black Horse Brewery & I Was Blown Away By This Hidden Gem

Or a nice lunch at my other favorite, Toadbury Hall!

What’s on your wishlist this Mother’s Day?

    I hope that your hubby has been saving all year for your gift – hahahaha. I absolutely LOVE the Tilla & Jacob shoes. Saw them recently in Parys and fell in love although they are rather pricey so I’d have to save up all year!!

    The Ladies Business Bag looks like a perfect gift. My laptop accidentally fell out my laptop bag. It would have been so much safer in this beauty bag
