We are now just days away from Mother’s Day, with the recent snow covering the UK everything seems to have been put on hold. For us it has and Mother’s Day has been pretty far from my mind these last few days. With the day now looming I’ve realised just how much has been left to the last-minute this year. With many women in our lives from Mothers to Grandmothers and even a Great Grandmother to think about there is a whole host of likes, dislikes and interests which we can find a gift from. Since I can’t be the only one who finds themselves needing some last minute gifts this Mother’s Day, I thought I would share some idea’s with you.
Dorco Eve 6 Razor and Blades
This is more than just a mere razor. The Dorco Eve 6 has 6 uniquely bent blades which can be placed even closer together to give you a safer shave with less skin irritation. The blades are paired up with a rubber guard which you can see up close below. This guard is designed to prepare your skin and hair for the effects of the blades followed by the blue lubricating strip which are all positioned on a pivoting head which bends to ensure a smooth shave over all those areas you hate shaving. I love that the whole head for the Dorco Eve 6 can bend almost in half allowing you to get all the harder to shave areas without having to make odd shapes with your body! Is that just me?
I think most Mother’s out there would be amazed to receive a gift that is so practical and would get used regularly. I would have to recommend that this would be a perfect gift for a new mother especially. I know it seems a bit more unusual as first Mother’s day gift, stick with me. Just under five years ago I celebrated my very first mother’s day, within a week of giving birth to D. I wasn’t long home from the hospital, still sore and just starting to figure out how to be a Mother. I would have been so grateful to have someone think about the practicality of a gift like the Dorco Eve 6 Razor. After not being able to even see, never mind shave my legs and feet properly for a good few weeks or months this would have been perfect! If your buying a gift this Mother’s Day for a new mum, I would have to recommend you get her the Dorco Eve 6 and give her a good long (as long as possible) uninterrupted bath/ shower/ relaxing time. You will be her hero!
You can get the Dorco Eve 6 along with blades from just £4.58 thanks to the current sale. (Sale available at the time of publishing this guide)
Eyejusters Adjustable Reading Glasses
These reading glasses are exactly what they sound like. Reading glasses which you can adjust! The whole idea is so obvious that you wonder why they aren’t everywhere. The Eyejusters are the only pair of reading glasses you will ever need. It’s no secret that as we age our eyes have a harder time and for many of us reading glasses will become part of our daily life.
Most of the Women in my family wear some form of reading glasses, a few even have various pairs for different tasks. The great thing about these Eyejusters is they won’t need whole host of glasses anymore! With a range of strengths to choose from Eyejusters can be changed to suit every activity you need from hobbies and reading to seeing items close up. It’s simple to change and choose any strength between +0.5 through to +4.0 D. The easy to use dial you see in the photo above is used by twisting to your desired strength. With one dial on each lens you can even adjust the Eyejusters to suit each eye if you need a different strength. I love that they can even be adjusted on your face! Yes, it is really that easy.
Eyejusters are the perfect gift for Mother’s who wear reading glasses for any reason and you don’t need to worry about buying the wrong strength at all. I know these would be loved by so many of the Women in our lives. With a whole range of styles and colours available there is something for everyone too.
You can get Eyejusters Adjustable Reading Glasses starting from £69 with the Multi layer pair featured above at £79.
Mummy & Baby Bunny
How cute are these? Stuffed animals are everywhere around Mother’s Day. Soft fluffy animals can be adorable. It’s almost guaranteed that I will get one each year. I do love little cute animals and this year will be just the same! I simply had to include this little duo which are just beyond adorable! A matching Mummy and Baby Bunny set with a lovely pink floral fabric used on both the feet and ears on the Mummy bunny along with the Ears on the baby bunny. The set has super soft fur perfect for cuddling. The Mummy Bunny even has velcro attached to the front paws which lets the Mummy cuddle up to the Baby. The set is also available in bears, which are equally adorable.

The Makery Craft Kits
It’s no secret that I enjoy getting crafty. I love to make new items and trying new crafts for myself. A lot of the women in my family are the same and each has their own little niche of crafts. My Mother and Grandmother are very talented as are both of Simon’s Grandmother’s. Which of course means I love to find crafty/ creative gifts and Mother’s Day is no exception. The Makery Craft Kits are perfect for those with a creative streak, since each kit is geared to one craft and contains every item you will need to complete an entire project along with easy to follow instructions.
The Makery Clasp Purse Craft Kit
A clasp purse is a lovely accessory especially in the summer months. Being able to make one that is completely unique and made by yourself just adds a little something extra.

The Makery Letter Embroidery Hoop
Letter embroidery is very popular at the minute. Everyone loves being able to add a personalised touch to items in the home. The Makery Letter Embroidery Hoop Craft Kit allows you to give embroidery a try in an easy to follow pattern for each letter you might want to use. I love personalised items myself but embroidery seems pretty daunting. This kit makes it possible to try with some help and easy starter project that will let you gauge just how you feel about embroidery as a craft with the end result of a lovely wall piece to feature somewhere in your home.

The Makery Felt Cuckoo Clock Craft Kit
This kit from The Makery is a little more unusual as the other two, however it is just as cute. This Felt Cuckoo Clock is pretty cute and I know my a few women who would love a little kit like this! The whole kit comes ready to go with pre-punched holes in all the little felt pieces which you will apply following the step by step instructions before assembling the actual clock element.
Inside the box you will find all the pieces wrapped in a bright and funky tissue paper which feels a little exciting to open up.

Mother’s day just wouldn’t be complete without a lovely box of chocolates to indulge in. There’s just something about relaxing with chocolates on Mother’s Day that feels like bliss, add in a good book or TV binge and I am in heaven! I had to include some chocolates in the list and since the Dairy Box from Nestle is one of my favourites, it simply had to be included.

I have yet to meet a woman who doesn’t love candles or wax melts. One of the biggest and most widely loved is Yankee Candle. I personally love Yankee Candle and since they don’t just do candles but also accessories which can be used with candles and wax melts. Just like this Petal Bowl Wax Burner which is one of my favourite items. With its elegant, yet simple design and the range of colours available you can add it to any room and colour scheme. The Yankee Candle Petal Bowl Wax Burner is perfect for anyone who loves wax melts and candles. Why not add a wax melt or two and make it a little gift set.
