Birthday gifts are always tricky and I like to put some thought into what I buy somebody but it is often difficult to find a present that means something!
Whilst living at university, 5 hours from home, I don't talk to my parents that frequently and so it has been a lot harder to buy presents! It's my mums birthday in a few days so I decided to put together a little gift box.
Here are the things I included...
Mini FCUK signature bodywash £2.35
Mini Umberto Giannini beauty balm £1
Mini Ted Baker original body spray £2.35
Mini Bastiste dry shampoo £1.49
Mini Soap & Glory Hand Food £2.50
(All from Boots)
Yankee Candle Tarts in Vanilla Cupcake, Vanilla Satin, Pink Lady Slipper £1.20 each
Purple soap £2.49. (Candles and soap from 'Cards & Candles')
Bracelet £5 (Sainsburys)
Two Glass Candle Plates 50p each (Sainsburys)
Green & Blacks mini milk chocolate and butterscotch chocolate 85p each
'Birthday Girl' Rosette (everyone loves a badge on their birthday!)
Mini box of Guylian Chocolates
Earrings Next £3
And there's finished box... it's all a bit crammed in there but I like the idea of her having to rummage through to find all the little goodies!
And of course I had to include this birthday card, I laughed for a good while and isn't it just adorable?
Finally, a personal touch. This is a little something I drew at Art Society the other week.
What do you guys think of the goodies I included? I must admit it was a bit rushed to put this all together and I'm worried about how much this is going to cost to post because it is rather heavy but I think she'll like it! One thing I really wanted to put in there (but it wouldn't have gotten here in time) was one of the Paul & Joe cat collection blusher sticks!
If you were to put a gift box together what would you include?
I hope you all had a good and relaxing bank holiday weekend!
