  11. What a great list of ideas! I’d really love to get the nail strengthener! I’ve always had very thin nails and have never been able to grow them.

    1. My nails have always been one of my best features, strong and long, but lately they have been a nightmare and finding this is really helping x

      1. Hah! My mom does this too. Except I taught her how to use wishlists. So now she just loads her wishlist up with stuff and I get it for her for holidays. Pretty good deal.

        1. I am not even going to try to show my Mum Amazon wishlists, she has trouble getting her emails, and I am forever hearing there is something wrong with the emails as they are not loading, I go and load them straight away x

  12. You’ve shared some really great gifts here! I’m a mummy to be and hope I get a little treat this mother’s day 🙂 I think all moms deserve to have a special day!

  13. These are all great ideas, and I adore that they are economical. I can totally picture one of my tiny air plants in that vase. So cute!! 🙂

    1. The vase is very cute I love it, I think companies forget that Mothers Day is for children to buy and the prices shoot up which is so unfair x

  14. Such a good list for those of us who are stumped as to what to get. I love the bath salts idea. Everyone can use a good and relaxing bath.
