Mother’s Day is just around the corner, but, thankfully, you haven’t yet left it too late to find the perfect gift.

In my completely unbiased opinion, beauty products make for some of the best gifts for Mother’s Day – there’s something for every budget, and it is an easy way to add a bit of luxury to her life.

If the important woman in your life is the type to spend a little too much time getting ready in the morning, here are some gift ideas to show her you get her.

Pamper mum this Mother’s Day.

Spice up her makeup routine

One thing all mums have down pat is their makeup routine. They know their shades, they know what their favourite products are, and chances are they’ve been using them since before you were born.

If your mum has ever shown an interest in trying something new, or you notice her products starting to get a little low, Mother’s Day is the perfect time to help her out.

I wouldn’t get anything too shade-specific, like foundations or concealers, but if you have a general idea of the types of colours your mum likes to use in her makeup, go for a new eyeshadow palette like the Tartelette In Bloom Clay Palette, or a new blush, like the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush.

Make her feel pampered

You can’t go wrong with a nice bath or body product to pamper mum this Mother’s Day.

Fresh makes some really beautiful skincare and body products that smell lovely and are a step up from your normal day-to-day products, without feeling too fancy that she’d be hesitant to use them. I love their Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Face Cream!

Indulge fragrance lovers

Though a very simple gift to some, there’s a reason why perfumes and candles are so popular for Mother’s Day.

The secret to getting this one right is to truly listen to the person you’re buying it for – do they like fruity scents, floral scents, or perhaps sweeter scents?

If you’re not sure, you can always go the discovery set route, so mum can try a host of different scents before choosing to purchase her favourite (unless you’re generous enough to buy it for her). Plenty of brands do these for candles and perfumes, including Le Labo, Yves Saint Laurant, MALIN+GOETZ and Juliette has a gun.


Make an investment in her hair for her
Though you can get hair tools at all price points, the good ones that last will set you back a pretty penny.

If mum has been complaining about an old hairdryer or straightener, it may be time for you to step in.

One of my favourite hair tools is the Shark FlexStyle, and given it comes with every attachment you could possibly need to blow-dry and curl your hair, it’s the perfect all-in-one for mum.
