Life of a Mum

Teachers thank you gift guide

Bloody difficult isn’t it; what to get someone that maybe sees your child more than you, but you don’t know them very well. Also might be more than one, so it can get expensive!!!

My gift guide is based on a modest budget of £10….. so hopefully something for everyone

No 34 Boutique obviously a local favourite of mine! They stock loads of gift options for £10 and under; earrings, socks, candles and more. They’ll even box you up a cute bundle such as this ….. check out No 34 boutique on Instagram or pop into their Market Harborough boutique

Memories and gifts there’s lots of low cost teachers gifts here, lots are personalised too. My favourite if the card and gift in one- this cute personalised card has a detachable magnet and is £8 Buy here

Isabellas Illustration’s if you’re a teacher you’ve gotta love stationery right? I bloody love something to update my desk….. this positivity planner is so cute and just £4.99 Buy here

Leicestershire Craft Centre know a creative teacher??? Then a voucher from here would be awesome! They could put it towards a workshop (starting from £10) a DIY kit or even a pattern Leicestershire Craft Centre

Primrose and Bear I love these cute personalised pouches from Primrose and Bear perfect for pens, makeup or any other handbag essentials and they’re only £10

Essentially blended full body massage!

I’ll start my saying ‘oh my!’

Firstly on my arrival I noted it was a beautiful setting; the sun was beaming down, there’s plenty of free close parking and Idyllic Well-being is wonderfully welcoming.

Clean, tidy, friendly and relaxing. The Idyllic well-being cabin is beautifully spacious and inviting, I was greeted with a smile and Laura from Essentially Blended came through and took me to the treatment room.

I must admit, I have a super busy life, and when I booked a ‘full body massage’ – I did not further reading or investigation. I was expecting a ‘full body massage’ for maybe 60 mins.

But, what I got was so much more! Laura is a well trained aromatherapist, not just a masseuse/beauty therapist, and it shows. First she went through a comprehensive and holistic assessment of me, my body, my lifestyle and my needs.

Essentially Blended has totally undersold herself with this treatment! I’ve had treatments at Spas that cost double, but we’re no where near as good as this. I wouldn’t call this a full body massage- more a full body experience.

I was in with Laura for about two hours in total. And was massages from top to toe, with a blended oil made specifically for me. The room smelt amazing, and as well as massaging me with an oil, she also popped a steamy bowl under the couch to relax me.

This was FULL body- I never knew how much tension I held in my forearms and lower legs and insteps until I had this treatment. Louise even gives you a mini facial, and amazing fragranced mask from Evolve Beauty whilst she performs the most exquisite head massage; that gentle but firm hair pulling was insane!

Laura even gave me (decent sized bottle) of a 3% oil blend to help my muscular tension to take home! Honestly, take my advice and quickly book up before she ups her prices

Honestly, it was the best massage ever. Huge thanks to Laura for gifting me a voucher towards this experience. You can find Essentially Blended at Wistow, in Idyllic Well-being, Leicestershire.
