Mother's Day is just around the corner!
If you're anything like me you leave you're gift shopping until the very last minute. If that's you, you're in luck here are some last minute gift ideas - all under $70
The BasketI love creating 'compilation' gifts where I gather some small items to create one super gift. I love creating the DIY hamper and what better place to house these items than this gorgeous 'Rosie' basket from Market Basket*?
The 'Rosie' features red leather, fabric lining and is surprisingly quite big, so it can fit alot more than you would think!
Bonus Points: The Rose detail just screams Mother's Day doesn't it?
Available: Market Basket
The HairI love gift sets. They just make everything so darn easy.
This is a limited edition Mother's Day gift pack from evo*, think of it like a gift with purchase as the shampoo + conditioner retail for $29.95 each. So for the same price of $59.90 in total, you also get this fun kitschy toiletry bag and shower cap. The shower cap is pretty impressive and not the $2 shop quality I was anticipating. It's got a sweet terry lining as you're mane is too good to touch plastic.
Contains: Gluttony Shampoo 300ml, Bride of Gluttony Conditioner 300ml, Toiletry Bag + Shower Cap
Bonus Points: Does not test on animals, 100% recyclable + paraben free - sweet!
Available: Salons only check them out here or online at Adore Beauty.
The BodyLet me introduce you too... Antipodes*, an organic brand created and made in the exotic country of New Zealand. The Joyful Hand & Body Cream smells amazing - a not-too sweet scent thanks to wild blackcurrant berry and hibiscus flower.
Unfortunately using Antipodes is unlikely to magically transform yourself or your mother into Elle Macpherson but you will be closer to having oh-so-smooth skin.
Oh yeah, this is perfect to put in that super awesome hamper that you're building for Mother's Day.
Bonus Points: Certified organic, using 100% natural ingredients + gorgeous scent.
The BathSomething a bit fun for bath times. This is the 'Mum Tulip' which also has the scent of Sex Bomb bath bomb - yeah, let's not think about that too much regarding mothers, ay?
Bonus Points: Probably the nicest brand on the block - I am completely biased towards Lush and love the fact that despite their massive expansion they've stuck to their core values of being against animal testing.
The FoodIf you're anything like me and cooking for your mum is a bit of a rarity, as let's face it you'll never be half as good as her, treating her to a home cooked meal would mean a lot. It doesn't have to be particularly amazing but the fact that YOU made it - means a lot more. Plus it's a 'thought that counts' gift and is easily adaptable according to your budget.

You can get a potted one with a 'design' for only $24.98 at Bunnings OR you can do a bit of DIY and just buy the plant from Bunning's or Paddy's Market in Sydney for about $3-8 (depends where you go, type and if you're nice). Recycle a nice glass bottle (as that's hipster cool right now AND environmentally friendly) and buy some stones from the local $2 shop - easy!
