What to buy for Mother’s Day in lockdown?
Some people find Mother’s Day shopping a doddle; others have to buy for the Mum who buys everything she could ever wish for, leaving you a little stuck for ideas. Throw into the equation a National Lockdown where all but the essential shops are closed, and you’ve got yourselves a challenge on your hands. Fear not, I have a few ideas up my sleeve for you, and they can all be purchased online!
Asda Photo Gifts
Photo Gifts will always make their way into my gift guides because I love them, and I can’t think of any reason why anyone wouldn’t? Each year there are opportunities for new photographs, new memories to capture and share. Making a photo gift with Asda Photo is so quick and easy. You can even do it on your mobile phone. Just select the card and gifts you want to make, upload the photographs straight from your phone and place the order.
They have beautiful products to suit every taste, every occasion and home style. Whether you’re looking for a photobook for your Mum to feel a part of all the things she has missed over the past year, a canvas to go on her wall, a cushion for when she wants something to cuddle or a cup for her cocoa before she goes to bed at night. They really have thought of everything.
All gifts arrived well packaged so that they arrive in tip-top condition and are with you in just a few days. You don’t even need to leave the house!
Wireless Bamboo Phone Charger
If your Mum’s phone is anything like mine, then it’s always running pretty low on battery. Whether I am using my phone to catch up on emails, take photographs or videos of the children, send messages to loved ones, or grab five minutes to read my latest book on the Kindle app, my phone’s battery gets depleted fast.
With the Personalised Wireless Bamboo Phone Charger from Always Personal, I can keep my battery topped up without plugging and unplugging it. The Bamboo top can be engraved with your own personal message or name. It has a blue indicator ring that lights up to show the phone is charging.
Metaphysical Crystals from Wakuda
I LOVE crystals and I know I am not alone! More and more people are turning to all things ‘woo-woo to enhance their lives. My love for crystals started at a young age because I was attracted to their beauty but crystals are so much more than just a pretty stone. Over the years I have amassed quite the collection of crystals and now the children have started their own little collections too. You can even mount these crystals to jewellery, for example, you can find a new choker necklace and embed these beautiful crystals into it. So why should you buy crystals?
Crystals have long been used for their healing properties from bringing peace to the mind, offering protection or attracting wealth and abundance, the possibilities are endless and the thing that I really like is that there is no right or wrong crystal. Rather like in pregnancy when you crave the food that your body (and your baby) needs, it is the same with crystals. You are naturally drawn to crystals that you need the most in your life.
I love this beautiful Rose Quartz Gift Set and Shungite Pyramid, both from Wakuda. Wakuda is an online global marketplace for black-owned small businesses in the UK.
The Rose Quartz gift set is filled with the crystal of love, happiness, warmth and joy. It’s a crystal filled with unconditional loving energy so that the recipient knows how much they are loved and is also good for self-love. The kit comes in a gift box and contains:
- Rose Quartz Heart Necklace on vegan leather rope chain 17 inches
- Rose Quartz Guardian Angel
- Healing Love Jar of Rose Quartz Chips
- Rose Quartz Tumble Stone
- Selenite Stick to keep your Crystals cleansed
- Love Stone
The Shungite Pyramid is a powerful protection purification stone which offers protection from EMF radiation (think of all the wifi flying around the house), geopathic stress, the evil eye and all forms of negative energy.
Copper Infused Clothing
Like it or not, viruses are here to stay and even though we have vaccines for Covid-19, it will always pose a risk. I have recently discovered Copper Clothing which the US Environmental Protection Agency has recognised for providing long-term effectiveness against viruses, including SARS-Cov-2.
The majority of people I know who have received the vaccine already have said that they will still be taking steps to protect themselves when out and about. They still intend to wear face masks and gloves to reduce any risk of passing the virus onto others.
The four-layer Copper face mask is lightweight and comfortable to wear yet offers four layers of protection which provide 99% filtration of particulate matter. The mask is anti-microbial copper-infused which will keep you safer for longer. It is machine washable and eco-friendly. It has been ergonomically shaped to fit the face’s contours without bagging or gaping and has adjustable ear cords to fit all head sizes.
The anti-microbial copper compression gloves have become a staple part of my wardrobe. They have been proven to have anti-viral properties and a 99.99% reduction and destruction of Bovine Coronavirus in 10 minutes! They are super soft and comfortable to wear with grips across the palms and fingers. They have also been amazing for my hands through the cold weeks as I suffer from Reynaud’s disease, which is extremely painful.
At the moment, you can get a 15% discount for Mother’s Day if you enter WOMEN21 when prompted at the checkout. They have a range of clothing and sleepwear as well as products for pets and household bedding.
