1. Teal Velvet Glass Jewellery Box, £9.99
The glass, velvet and copper frames combined give this jewellery box a definite look of sophistication and luxury without a hefty price tag. There's also a version with mirrored glass interior as a cute alternative. If your mum loves her jewellery, this box is the perfect way to declutter and offer a stylish storage and display solution (and if you're feeling generous, you can put some actual jewellery in it, too).
2. Serenity Luxury Candle, £3.99
A candle is an essential gift for someone with a hectic schedule, with it being exclusively a luxury. Mums spend all of their time manoeuvring from work to family life, and lighting a candle restores a sense of serenity and calm. Aldi's range of luxury candles certainly offers that experience, packaged in chic glass containers made from tinted glass. We love their heavenly scents – you can't go wrong with this fab buy.
3. Grey Ladies' Mini Tote Bag, £14.99
Not only does this tote bag look great, it's also small and compact enough to hold on a long day/night out and is fitted with a large central compartment and three inner pockets, while also featuring an adjustable and removable strap. It also comes in black and pink so... we may have to buy one for ourselves too (as well as our mums, obvs).
4. Ladies' Floral Watch & Notebook Set, £9.99
We just cannot get over that ridiiiculously good price... if it wasn't for the fact that Aldi is constantly surprising us with great deals, we'd think there had been a website error. Slim, sleek, practical and stylish, this watch ticks all the boxes. However, that's not all this gift has to offer, there's a gift box, a metal case, a matching A6 notebook and a pencil, too.
5. Healthy Glow Gift Set, £7.99
Honestly, since Aldi dropped their skincare range Lacura, inspired by big makeup and skincare brands, the internet has been going mad. The packaging is cute and classy and the products really do deliver, at a fraction of the price of its inspiration. This skincare gift set includes toner, oil and a hot cloth cleanser. We love the scent and nourishing feel of the rose water oil. Mmmm.
