Mother’s Day is a time for showing the women in our life how thankful we are for the love, care and support they have shown us. I believe that self-care gifts are the best kind of gift for Mother’s Day, and beauty care is my favourite form of self-care. This year I’ve collated the best gifts, for any budget, to give your mother this Mother’s Day, or to pass on to your own loved ones as a hint of gifts to give you!
Don’t leave your gift purchases until the last minute. This year we are giving you enough time to buy your Mother’s Day gifts online so you can take advantage of extra sales, offers and gifts with purchase.

Candles can be perceived by some as a thoughtless gift but I have to tell you, when it comes to Glasshouse Fragrances, I’ve only ever had people jump for joy upon receiving one. The beautifully packaged glass jars contain triple scented, heavenly bouquets that delight the senses of anyone who comes in contact with them. My favourite for gift giving (to others and myself!) is Tahaa, a vanilla caramel treat with a hint of coconut that transports me to a polynesian island.
As a woman I understand the trials and tribulations of maintaining basic beauty needs, one of those being unwanted body and facial hair. I’ve found the new Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler to be a handy trimmer tool that makes grooming a little easier. Whether you are looking for a gift to give your mom, or a gift to you from a loved one, there is always a beauty need to attend to and this tool is a great way to resolve it.

Cult skincare brand on the rise is Glossier, and if you are on Instagram or read beauty blogs (obviously you do, you are here, aren’t you?) it’s hard to have not noticed their popularity. Unfortunately, Glossier is currently only in the USA and soon-to-be in the UK but for everyone else we are cut off. Except for one product, and that product just happens to be a great gift idea! Glossier’s very first product, Balm Dotcom, is the one that started it all. Treat your mom to a 3-pack of this universal beauty salve and maybe she will even throw one back to you as a thank-you.
