The high street shops and online stores alike are saturated with birthday gifts divided into categories of recipients that are entirely of the store’s own design, usually with surplus stock from Christmas.
If you are very much someone who, when choosing that special gift for that cherished maternal figure in your life, wants to treat them to something special, something with a touch of luxury and something that little bit different, then continue reading.
Your mum and your grandma more than likely have enough ‘smellies’ and other toiletries to open their own branch of Boots and, although grateful, such a gift is unlikely to blow their proverbial socks off.
Gift sets that, essentially, consist entirely of products that are still being sold separately but have been wrapped together in pastel-coloured cardboard are now double the price are all well and good. However, to ensure your cherished mum or nan’s birthday will be truly one for them to remember by treating them to a red-letter experience day.
From afternoon tea in a castle or luxury hotel or an overnight stay in the Cotswolds to more energetic and daring adventure days such as a hot-air balloon ride, a helicopter tour, or even paragliding, there truly is a red-letter experience day to suit anyone and everyone.
Indulgent Beauty Treatments
There is a multitude of amazing benefits to treating a loved one to a gift voucher for a plethora of different beauty treatments from a prestigious and luxurious beauty salon, such as a beauty salon Oxford.
Maybe your mother or grandmother prefers a relaxing spa day or swim and sauna, or perhaps they would like to experience an indulgent and multi-beneficial face, neck, or body massage. There are lots of benefits to a professional and well-executed massage, which include but are categorically in no way limited to:
- A significant reduction in stress and anxiety levels
- The banishment of various aches and pains
- A substantial boost in energy
- Improved blood circulation around the body
- The lowering of blood pressure and overall heart rate
Undeniably, the best birthday gift, especially for a beloved member of your family, is a present that has clearly been thought about carefully and suits the personality, likes, and desires of the recipient.
With that being said, why not create your own birthday hamper to gift your mother or grandmother and, what is more, why not personalise the hamper by filling it with treats and gifts that you know for a fact that they will utterly adore.
Invest in a quality bottle of wine, a selection of decadent cheeses and corresponding pickles and chutneys, and some luxury chocolate liqueurs to form part of the basket contents. Next, choose some beautiful and strong-smelling candles and wax melts in scents that you know they will love and pair them with a simple and modern in design wax burner. Finish off the hamper with ribbons to create the perfect birthday gift.
