If you’re looking for some great Mother’s Day for the health conscious mummy, I’ve got some great suggestions for your today..
Let’s start with the every so adorable Olika Birdie, which is actually not a decor item, but rather hand sanitiser, which yes, will look incredible on your desk too.
The Olika Birdie contains 350+ sprays of sanitiser made and also contains essential oils of lemon, bergamot and spearmint, and you use it by simply pushing down on the head of the bird to dispense. And even more cleverly, the base of the birdie, contains 10 small dry wipes to help you remove any dirt and grime. So this little birdie not only looks super stylish and adorable, it also smells so lovely and fresh, all while keeping your hands clean and refreshed, as well as soft and hydrated thanks to the added aloe vera leaf juice and glycerin. Now How clever is that
Olika Birdie - RRP: $35 / 2 pack, 2 x 20ml + 2 x 10 wipes

If she’s a huge coffee drinker, what about gifting her some high performance ONE coffee from Before You Speak Coffee. This coffee is not your ordinary coffee, yes, it is made from arabica coffee, but what makes it so special is that it is infused with superfoods to naturally improve your health, well-being & performance. The added superfoods include;
That means that this coffee, which essentially an instant coffee will not only give you the usual caffeine energy fix and enhance energy and reduce fatigue, it will also help improve brain function, increase fat burning, stabilise blood sugar levels and thereby reduce food and sugar cravings. Its recommended only to drink one serving per day, which can be in the morning to start the day, or whenever you need a little boost.
They come in convenient little sachets, so they are also easy to bring with you to ie the office. I also love the fact that you can enjoy it either hot or cold, as unlike normal coffee it actually tastes just as great cold. It is slightly sweet (thanks to the added stevia), , but I think the pepper, turmeric and ginseng counters for that, making it a slightly spicy scent too. For me, I don’t think that it will ever replace real coffee (I’m generally not fond of instant coffee either), but I do love that by drinking this, I can get a coffee fix, and drinking one cup in the afternoon when I typically get tired, has certainly helped give me that much needed kick to get through the afternoon, while also stopping me from raiding the pantry for anything sweet.
Before You Speak Coffee also has a stunning collection of accessories, including this cool Before You Speak Coffee C up, with the text "but first coffee", which just makes the coffee experience even better (and is exactly how I feel each morning).

If she’s always on the go, and busy, but loves healthy food, what about giving her some Funch healthy snack premixes. There are lot of different varieties available such as the Funch Vanilla + Coconut Protein Ball Mix, which has a great vanilla-coconutty taste. And while there’s no added sugar (but added stevia) they are slightly sweet, so helps take away any sugar craving, while giving you a high dose of proteins and fibres that will help keep hunger (and further cravings at bay).
Or there’s the Funch Luxe Ball Honeycomb Crunch Mix , which is made using buttery peanuts and sweet honeycomb. Again, these have a gorgeous satisfying sweetness to them, without any added sugar (but added stevia), so they are perfect for that afternoon sugar craving. They are also a great source of energy thanks to the fibre and proteins.
These mixes are made using high quality ingredients, and are so super easy to use as they can be made without any blender and also don’t require any baking. You simply mix the contents of a pack with the suggested ingredients (which include among others rice malt syrup and coconut oil for the protein balls, or warm water and rice malt syrup for the honeycomb crunch), and then simply roll them into balls, chill them, and then enjoy. You can of course also roll them in desiccated coconut if you like, as well as you can add other ingredients such as dates, which personally I really like.
The pack makes approx. 10-15 balls (or a few more if you add the dates), and once made up, they last up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Or they can also be popped into the freezer, but mine’s never lasted that long. So quick and easy to make, and so super delicious, yet healthy at the same time.
