Usually mums are the first people to say they don’t mind not getting a present for Christmas or their birthday, I am the same myself. I think it is just written into a mum’s job description not to expect presents ever again and let everyone else go first. I really enjoy watching my kids or my husband unpack their gifts and I absolutely love seeing their faces as they discover the surprises inside. In saying that, it is nice to receive something special every now and then even if it means you have to go get it yourself.
As I was loading up my trolley with lots of gorgeous Christmas bits and pieces (more about that another time) the twins ended up at the beauty department of our local Target store. I think they were mostly interested in the colourful boxes of bath crayons and Disney princess shower gels but it did give me a free minute to check out the fragrances section. Personally I very much like getting a new fragrance as it really is a gift that keeps on giving, day in day out. You’ve got to love Target stores because everything is so close together, perfect for one-stop-shopping!
This is also about where my relaxing shopping experience ended, every child managed to try (at least) four different perfumes on each arm and through this big cloud of wonderful and not-so-wonderful smells I couldn’t work out what I liked most. So I decided to make a quick and practical decision and went for a lovely 3-piece Beyonce Heat perfume gift pack ($49.95). With three 30ml bottles inside I am sure it contains a nice option for any occasion and it looks great as a gift, I’ll even bother to wrap it up and put up a surprised face!
Next time you pop into your nearest Target store take a few minutes to look for yourself too, it is easier than you think and don’t forget the Target Online Store is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. For more information visit www.target.com.au.
Here’s to a lovely present for every single mama this festive season, whether it be a surprise bought by family or a hasty gift purchased by you!
