Christmas gift ideas for Mum

Mum’s are superstars all year round and should always be at the top of your list for people to treat at Christmas time. They do so much for us and Christmas is the perfect time to show them how much we appreciate it. If you’re feeling a little stuck for inspiration, don’t worry because we’ve created this handy list packed with items any Mum would like to find under tree.

Supercuts - Wella Professionals Fusion Gift Set

Sometimes Mums can be so busy looking after everyone else that their hair is probably the last thing on their minds. This gift set from Supercuts is perfect for hair in need of a little TLC and will have Mum looking a million dollars in no time. Not only does this item work to repair damaged hair, but the special Silksteel technology works to help protect it from further damage, which means this is a gift Mum can enjoy for weeks to come.

Argento Jewellery - Nomination Classic Rose Gold Base Bracelet

These simple yet stylish bracelets are ideal for those looking to add a little customisation to their gift. The bracelets look great on their own but are designed for use with cute little charms which you have to pick at the time of purchase. The really cool thing about this item is that the owner removes a link in the bracelet every time they add a new charm. If you fill up the charm slots then you should have enough removed links to start a new bracelet from scratch!

OFFICE - Dr. Martens - 1460 Serena Fur Boots

An iconic boot for an iconic lady! Dr. Martens have been making their ever-popular boot since the 1960’s so it’s fair to say they know a thing or two about stylish footwear. These particular boots take the classic design and lines them with an eye catching leopard print inspired lining that are sure to keep Mums feet nice and toasty all through winter. Given that they’re black, they should go with most outfits meaning the owner can really get the most out of them.
