Andrew James Colour Changing Diffuser
£19.99 from www.andrewjamesworldwide.com
Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to turn any room into a tranquil oasis for your Mum, so she can make the most of some downtime. The Diffuser doesn’t come with any fragrances so that means you can create your own blends or select your favourite scent. All you need to do is fill the 120ml pot inside with water and add a few drops of your favourite essential oil. The diffuser uses ultrasonic technology which gently vibrates molecules to release the aroma into the room. As no heat is produced, the Aroma Diffuser is safer to use than candles or oil burners, and automatically switches off when the water level is low. Not only can the diffuser spoil your senses with your favourite scents, it also humidifies the room, improving the air quality and leaving you refreshed and relaxed. For £19.99 this makes an affordable, attractive and mood enhancing gift for Mother’s Day.
IXXI Anti-Ageing Absolute
£49.00 from www.ixxi-cosmetics.co.ukWe are told that IXXI is a lovely French natural cosmetics brand, new on the UK market. Thanks to its exclusive ingredient, OPC PIN, it offers everything a busy mum can look for in a beauty treatment: natural, antipollution, antiaging while locally-produced and ecological-minded. Anti-Ageing Absolute brings effective action with highly redensifying, regenerating and protective benefits. Wrinkles are corrected and the skin in nourished, regaining comfort and radiance. The Mumsclub team have been using it for a few weeks now and can really see and feel the difference in our skin …. long may this continue!
Picture Keeper Connect
£54.48 on Amazon
Now the MumsClub team “may” have been fighting over this particular product. The Picture Keeper Connect backs up all the information on your mobile phone, without having to rely on cloud technology (which might be more attractive after the recent Amazon outage). We have all had that annoying “out of storage” message when we want to take the perfect photo but the PictureKeeper allows you to store your photos but has a handy app that allows you to print a real picture and get it delivered to your house. There is nothing we don’t like about this handy little product and for busy mums (or Instagram addicts) who always want to capture the perfect picture (and may need to take 10 images to find it), then the PictureKeeper is the perfect gift.
Kerstin Florian Correcting Eye Rescue
£98.00 from www.kerstinflorian.co.ukKerstin Florian’s Correcting Eye Rescue is the perfect at-home spa treat, featuring easy to use under-the-eye pads to treat dark circles, puffiness and fine lines. Simply spritz the eye pad with hydrating Neroli Water for a brighter, visibly plumped and more luminous under-eye area. It is worth noting that you can’t take short cuts and use tap water and you need to give yourself 15-30 minutes to carry out the treatment, so it is not something you can do on the run! We were told that the eye correcting rescue decreases wrinkles by 35% and improves skin elasticity and after trying them out, our review panel do seem to have more of a twinkle in their eyes!
Swan Easy Grip Wine & Bottle Opener
£18.34 from Avina Wine accessories It is well documented that the MumsClub team do love a good bottle of wine or two, so we couldn’t resist adding this pink wine and bottle opener into our Mother’s Day Gift Guide. This product is really designed to last, as the winged corkscrew is backed with a ‘You Break It, We Replace It’ guarantee, so you never have to buy another cute wine bottle opener again. To top it off, it also comes with a stylish bottle stopper too in a presentation box, all just for £18.34.
£ 53.99 from Amazon Well, what a treat this has been, so easy to use, just throw your fruit in with some cold water, ice cubes or frozen fruit and voila just a few seconds in the super powerful 1200w Nutri-Pro produces a fabulously smooth smoothie. A quick rinse under the tap and the blade is clean and ready for another. You make the smoothie in the cup you use so less washing up. There’s a handy booklet of ideas for smoothies, and it comes with useful attachments too. My son, who is normally reluctant to eating fruit will happily make himself a milkshake with real fruit in this. He’s never been able to drink a smoothie before because of the bits but there are no bits with these smoothies! A true time and hassle saving device for my kitchen that’s for sure.
