Mothers Day Gift Idea - Hamper/Beauty Box Style

Ok so she won’t read this as she is on her holidays and I will give it to her tomorrow. So anyway this is the little idea I came up with for my mums birthday present, or you could use it as a mother’s day present idea (I'm cooking her a full roast for mother’s day).

So the idea came about before Christmas with all the beauty boxes that were flying around, I decided to make my mum and sister their own beauty boxes, filling them with makeup brushes, lipsticks, skincare….. you get the gist!

Well anyway they LOVED them. So for mums birthday, because I couldn’t think of one single great present, I decided to go for several minis. I wanted the ‘vessel’ to be a spring/summer bag as all hers are either black or too dressy for the day time. So here it is:

New Look Bag - £9.99
I then decided to whizz around Boots and Superdrug to fill it and this is what I came up with:

Overall I think it looks lovely and a lot of thought went into this; bright nails for spring, peachy blushes, and the packaging on the new No7 spring line was shouting ‘Buy Me’.

So what do you think? good idea? Might do this with all my presents now J

And a little bit cheeky but as it was 3 for 2 at No7 I got myself the new highlighter, how beautiful is this?


  1. You got lovely things for your Mum! I like the colour of the bag, I'm sure she'll love it!

    1. awww thanks. Atleast what she doesnt want she can give me haha. I know she will love it all x

  2. I am in love with the bag! X

  3. That is so cute, it's my Mother's birthday tomorrow and I am sorely tempted to copy you!
