Christmas Gift list ideas for a Busy Mum

Christmas Gift list ideas for a Busy Mum

Who else struggles to come up with Christmas Present ideas for their loved ones? I have to admit that I used to struggle, but it becomes a whole lot easier getting ideas in when you are a blogger! I have been sent loads of ideas and been to conferences where I have seen so many gift ideas so I have gone through them all, tried a few out and have come up with my best ideas so the coolest gifts.

This is my first list aimed at the busy, time precious mum. I also have a post on personalised gift ideas and also ideas for the difficult to buy for husband. If you are the busy mum reading this , why not share this with your kids of hubby and give them a few ideas!

Aldi Christmas Gifting Range

My first gift idea comes from my favourite shop, which is Aldi.

I got to see their Christmas range for the first time in July and I was most excited to browse through the gifting range. Now in the past week I’ve manged to get my hands on a few of the items which are available from now in store and online.

The slippers are so lovely. Firstly they are warm. Secondly they dont look like granny slippers, they look rather funky. And thirdly they are £4.99. Here is my pink pair, a gift to me!

Angela Langford skincare

This is a brand new skincare range to come to the UK, made by Angela Langford whom you might recognise from Masterchef fame. It is developed from natural ingredients in the UK and is cruelty free. I have been trying out the thirsty work moisturiser and the little lift serum.

They feel beautiful and soft on my skin, giving me a glow and a lift to my tired eyes. Take a look at her site, I love the idea of the skincare sample pack. You can order a few samples to try it out and just pay for the postage. What a perfect inexpensive way to try out a new brand before committing to skincare spending frenzy!

Buy a Gift Spa day

Buy a Gift is my favourite company to buy gift experiences from. I had the pleasure of trying out the Verularium spa in St.Albans using a Buy A gift spa voucher experience. I went along with my friend Anita and we had a blissfully relaxing day. There is nothing better when you are busy mum to take the day off, and relax in saunas, steam rooms, jacuzzis. Enjoy a facial or massage included on the voucher price. The only thing that we had to pay for was lunch and any other treatments if we wanted them.

Went on a lovely spa day today curtosy of the team at @buyagift. Took a friend who I havnt seen forever and we basically laid on a lounger for 3 hours and caught up on life. A good day. Had a nice lunch and a relaxing facial too. #grateful to my buddy for real chat. Real life #3positivethings 1) coop had Ben and Jerry on offer 1/2 price 2) I can confirm our new memory foam mattress is really comfy. 8/10 hard 3) Josh has got his first game with watton tomorrow and he can’t wait. Nice to see a smile back on his football face. . . . . . . . #lawofattraction #loa #gratitude #dailygratitude #thankful #positivity #lawofattractionquote #moneysaving #frugal #ukblogger #ukbloggerlife #ukmoneyblogger #bloggingyourwaytoriches #spaday #stalbans #nomakeup #makeupfree #verularium #coopfood #benandjerry #football #friendsarefamily

Aldi Candles and Diffusers

The Aldi candle and diffuser range is amazing. The Jo Malone copys were introduced as standard range back in September and have been flying out of the door. There are three scents for the candles and four scetns for the diffusers. They look extremely high end and yes they smell exactly like the £44 Jo Malone versions of the same thing. But these ones cost just £3.99. Why not get a set of the three candles, no 1,2 and 3. Pomegranate or Lime, basil and mandarin or blackberry and bay.

Malee candles, body scrub, handcream

I met the founder of this beauty brand at the Amazon Christmas event back in July and fell in love withe concept behind the product, the smell, the packaging..everything about it. This is a beauty product with a difference. The candles can also be used to moisturise your skin. I had the most amazing hand and arm massage delivered by ZeZe the owner of the company.

I was fortunate to receive the hand cream and body scrub after the event so have been using it for a few months. The products are amazing and I am definitely buying some more.

It available on Amazon here. I love the Verdure scent, based on the green tea and early morning mists. Its the perfect scent to wake you up in the morning.

Belmio Coffee pods

These are a beautiful alternative to Nespresso pods and come in at much cheaper. But yet taste just as good as the Nespresso pods. I tried out this taste of premium luxury pods, which are available on Amazon for £14.50. The pink ones were my particular favourite. A strong coffee with a hint of caramel.

So there you have it, lots of ideas for the busy mum whom is need of a bit of luxury.
