OYL’E London creates beautiful jewellery pieces which on their own are stunning enough, (just look at the rose gold bracelet pictured here!) but these also come with a delightful hidden secret! Each 925 Sterling Silver piece holds a 100% pure wool bead which can be diffused with OYL’E high quality 100% pure and non-adulterated essential oils. The vents on the pieces are designed to slowly diffuse their chosen aroma to the wearer throughout the day – delivering mum all the therapeutic and uplifting benefits aromatherapy has to offer!
Necklaces & Bracelets are available in both silver and rose gold and quite cleverly feature adjustable chains making them fit perfectly on any lucky mum that gets to wear one.

As we talked about in Blooming Lovely: the positive power of flowers, flowers have wide-reaching, happiness-inducing benefits which make them perfect well-being gifts. Current readers will not be unfamiliar with my love for Bloom And Wild UK flowers and I’m a big advocate of their flower subscription service. Choose between 3 & 6-month subscriptions and mum will have an ongoing dose of love & appreciation delivered through her letterbox each month.
For Mother’s Day, they are offering the Mother’s Day Surprise special edition gift box, which includes the sweet & uplifting Spring Meadow bouquet as well as a rather moorish bar of ‘Love You Mum’ milk chocolate from Ocelot.

An award-winning 99% organic & 100% natural facial oil that provides long-lasting nourishment and makes all skin-types (even sensitive) glow. Massaged into skin both morning & night, 2-3 drops of this ethically sourced, cruelty-free plant-based oil blend will have mum smiling from ear to ear. What I love about this oil (and I stress the word LOVE) is the simplicity of it – there’s no requirement for serums or eye-creams – this does it all in one bottle. If mum is busy, doesn’t want to faff with lots of products, but wants something to give her skin an air of wow – this is the oil to gift her!

Fabulous Liberty print eye-pillows are filled with dried-lavender, chamomile & buckwheat and are weighted with linseed to effectively and gently contour the eyes. Promoting calm, rest and relaxation or even greater focus during meditation or yoga these pillows really support and provide mum with some much-needed peace. Made of Tana Lawn cotton – a cotton fabric that behaves just like silk – they have a removable outer cover for ease of cleaning. Why not create a well-being gift set and add an atmosphere mist such as their ‘Love’ atmosphere mist helping to create the perfect ambiance with hints of Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Mandarin, Rose, Clary Sage & Vetiver.
Top tip: To soothe tired eyes, place the eye pillow in the microwave for 20 seconds prior to use. Alternatively, for a relieving cold compress, place the pillow in a bag within the freezer prior to use.

ARDERE (pronounced ar-deh-ray & meaning to glow) produce luxurious 100% organic, natural wax candles with cotton wicks and pure essential oils. Yielding the power of the olfactory system (sense of smell) to gain alignment with both body and mind – they’ll help mum to feel the best version of herself.
Each candle is inspired by destinations around the world. So you can transport mum to a garden in Thailand with an aroma of kaffir lime & ginger (my personal favourite) or stay closer to home with The Dales through scents of green fig & hedgerow blackberry. There are 6 candles to choose from – so where in the world would she choose to go?
Good to know: Each candle is hand-poured in the UK and has a burn time of 64 hours.
WILDWOMAN is a monthly reminder in the form of a self-care package to put yourself first. How many of our mum’s could benefit from this! How many of us could benefit from this for that matter?!
Each attractively packaged box contains a non-fiction self-development book and plenty of other goodies centered around the theme of the month.
Every month, Mum will be provided with the opportunity to reclaim some time and headspace – as well as a positive reminder of the importance of her own self-care. Mum can even get social by accessing the WILDWOMAN book club community online interacting with other like-minded women.
If mum doesn’t realise she’s a superhero already, this monthly hit of self-empowerment will leave her in no doubt!

Seriously, you! Receiving cards and gifts is absolutely wonderful (and I probably would advise against rocking up on Mother’s Day without at least a card) but, speaking as a mum here, you will have been the greatest gift to enter your mother’s life. So your time, your attention, your appreciation & your love are all valuable gifts to shower Mum in happiness this Mother’s Day.
Wishing you and your mum – or whoever holds that mother-figure place in your heart – a very happy Mother’s Day.
What do you love to do for Mother’s Day? It’s great to celebrate and be celebrated, isn’t it! I hope you’ve found some well-being gifts that you know your Mum (or mother-figure) will love or perhaps you’d want to treat yourself to too. (I know I have!) If you have any questions on any of them – just let me know, I’ve either seen, used, touched, smelt (or all of the above) them all – which is why I’m recommending them here.
