The gifts we’re giving this Mother’s Day

Finding the perfect gift for {Mother’s Day} can feel like an insurmountable task; flowers are always a safe bet but their short-lived nature often detracts from their beauty. Obviously, it’s the thought that counts but finding a {gift} that fully encapsulates our appreciation makes those unwrapping moments all the more special. That’s why we as a team turned to each other to validate the buys we’ve been eyeing for Mother’s Day — our mums are in for a treat, if we do say so ourselves, and hopefully our picks will help you find the right match for the mother figures in your life, whoever they may be.

There’s something so special about sharing beauty rituals with loved ones. My mum has always taken great pride in how she presents herself — from the spritz of her signature Chanel perfume to the careful way she styles her hair — but one thing she often strays away from is eyeshadow. When I lived at home, it became routine for me to do it for her when she was going somewhere nice; I used to moan that she should learn to do it herself but looking back, I miss it. That’s why I’m going to be gifting her RÓEN’s {75° Warm Eyeshadow Palette}. I know the burnished shades will look beautiful on her and the creamy, swipe-and-go texture promises easy application.” Beth, Senior Copywriter

A regular to only the finest beauty counters, I know my mum will get teary-eyed receiving a La Mer {Crème de la Mer Moisturising Cream} (and maybe a Jo Loves {Home Candle} too as I had to miss her 60th birthday last year due to lockdown). She’s just finished renovating her bedroom and en suite so these will sit pride of place on her new dressing table until she rings me asking for a replacement.” Emmie, Deputy Content Editor

My mum has always been super religious about body moisturising but being the simple skin care woman that she is, she settles for any ole lotion. That said, I think it’s high time she added a touch of luxury to her routine which is why I know Augustinus Bader’s {The Body Cream} will make the perfect Mother’s Day gift! My wallet might take a hit but the look on her face when she opens it will make it all worth it.” Nasreen, Junior Copywriter

If there’s one thing my mum loves more than anything, it’s smelling good. She loves beautiful scents both for the house and on her skin so for this Mother’s Day, I’m going to gift my mum a Boy Smells {LES Candle}. As a Piscean spring chicken, I think my mum would really appreciate the floral notes of peach blossom blended with deep musky aromas. She would probably hesitate to burn the candle out of sheer awe of its beautiful packaging but when she finally gives in, I know she’ll beg me to buy her more.” Precious, Junior Copywriter

My mum absolutely loves a good night cream — and they don’t come much more luxe than Omorovicza’s {Rejuvenating Night Cream} (and if you can’t spoil your mum on Mother’s Day, then when can you?). This rich, reparative formula promises to plump and smooth the complexion with collagen-stimulating peptides and vitamin A, while also leaving skin feeling silky-soft thanks to plum almond oil. The sleek glass container will make an oh-so-chic addition to my mum’s bathroom too!” Chloe, Copywriter

I can’t lie, my mum is an absolute diva! Whether it’s the latest mascara, the most luxe foundation or whatever new powder she’s read about in the Sunday rag, she has to have it and sharpish. This year she discovered Manicurist’s {Green Flash} polishes and the fact that she can give herself an at-home UV manicure that actually works. To break her out of the habitual wardrobe of colours, I think this year I’ll opt for Manicurist’s ‘Navy Blue’, and although she’s a stickler for the classics, I know she’ll agree that blue is the new black.” Niall, Copy Assistant
