Shark FlexStyle Air Styling & Hair Drying System
All mums love a nice hairdo. But they frequently settle for 20 year-old Babyliss hairdryers which sound like they conked out yonks ago. Of course, Dysons are the don – but just so expensive.
So, why not splash out a little on Shark’s FlexStyle, which is roughly half the price of Dyson. You can dry your hair, blow dry it straight, opt for a bouncy blow dry, curly, or style your curls with a diffuser.
Similar to the Dyson Airwrap, the Shark FlexStyle comes with two barrels, which rotate to style your hair into ringlets, while the funnelled attachment is ideal to tame flyaways, for a sleek straight do.
The bristle brush attachment, is ideal for those wanting a salon-like blow dry, while the diffuser is perfect for those with curly hair.

Gucci Bamboo Eau De Parfum
A timeless classic.
What better gift to give on Mother’s Day than a best-selling perfume?
Gucci has an array of fragrances for men and women, but the Gucci Bamboo is a popular choice and Mum is sure to love it.
Gucci Bamboo is a sweet and light fragrance, which will last for hours, but is not overwhelmingly potent or too sickly sweet – the perfect balance if you ask us.
With over 267 flowing reviews, this perfume is certainly one to snap up for any gift giving occasion if you ask us.

New Balance Trainers
Is your mum constantly running errands?
We know mums are constantly on the go, whether it is the school run, running errands, whizzing round supermarkets for the food shop, heading to after school clubs, and that’s probably all before their working day begins.
With that in mind, why not treat your mum – and her feet – to some comfortable, durable and oh so stylish trainers to help her complete those tasks with ease?
New Balance are one of the brands of the moment, and one we can’t get enough of, so we predict your parent will go head over heels for them too.
There are plenty of designs and styles to choose from, with New Balance’s 550 style being a huge hit with Gen Z, but I also love the 327 style, which resemble a running trainer and provide optimum comfort and support for your mum.
