Looking for a Mother's Day Gift but still not sure what to purchase? Here are my gift suggestions covering fragrance, makeup, pampering, home and lifestyle products - all perfect ways to show Mum some love!
Lifestyle Gift Idea: Subscription box - My Little Box* shown (various prices)
Subscription boxes are still a big thing this year, with more and more coming onto the market every month and catering for every budget, hobby and passion that you can think of. If I was choosing a monthly subscription box for my mum, I would opt for something like My Little Box because they offer a mix of beauty and lifestyle products so you can get the best of both worlds in one box. I've reviewed last month's box on All Subscription Boxes today, and ASB have loads of other suggestions too!
Fragrance Gift Ideas: Stella McCartney Stella Eau de Parfum* (50ml, £60, link) and Dolce & Gabbana Rosa Excelsa Eau de Parfum* (75ml, £76.50, link)
If you're splashing out, a designer perfume is always a real treat. If your Mum loves feisty floral fragrances, Stella McCartney's Stella is described as 'sophisticated with a sultry edge' and features notes of Rose Absolute, Mandarin, Amber and Peony and a stunning ombre effect bottle.
For something more classic but still with a contemporary twist, Dolce & Gabbana's new Rosa Excelsa captures the scent of Rose petals in bloom and blends this with Turkish Rose Absolute, Water Lily, White Dafodil, Papaya and Neroli with Sandalwood undertones. I love the bottle too!
Home Gift Ideas: Flamingo Candles Bunny Kisses Easter Candle* (£12) and Conscious Skincare Grapefruit, Lemon and Cedarwood Eco Candle* (£19.99, link)
I've said it many times before, but I love giving candles as gifts. Flamingo Candles have brought out a brand new candle for Easter called 'Bunny Kisses' which features a cute bunny and a heart on the front instead of their bespoke Flamingo mascot. Bunny Kisses is a deliciously sweet (but not sickly) scent of rhubarb, caramel and vanilla custard in natural soy wax - a lovely scent if your Mum is sweet things and enjoys baking.
Conscious Skincare are a seriously underrated brand in my opinion, and I was delighted to see that they've launched a new candle into their range of eco-friendly products. This one is scented with essential oils of Grapefruit, Lemon and Cedarwood, and it smells amazing! Very uplifting, zesty and perfect for Spring.
Pampering Gift Idea: Aveda Stress-Fix Soaking Salts* (454g, £31, link)
Everyone should use a luxury pampering treat now and again, but I feel that Mums always seem to miss out as they have a lot of their plates. Treat yours to Aveda's Stress-Fix Soaking Salts which are truly worth every penny as the sugar and mineral-rich salts are infused with an all natural aroma that's proven to help you relax and de-stress. Scented with French Lavender, Lavandin and Clary Sage, these are perfect to use after a busy, stressful day. Huge tub that will last ages as you only need two tablespoons per bath!
Make-up Gift Ideas: INIKA Organic Liquid Foundation* (30ml, £29.50, link) and INIKA Organic Pure Primer* (50ml, £29.50, link)
Introduce your Mum to the wonders of natural and organic make-up with Inika's bestselling Organic Liquid Foundation and Pure Primer. Both of these have been reformulated recently and now feature Hyaluronic Acid which is well known for its hydrating and skin-plumping benefits. The Pure Primer is an easy way to get into the habit of using a primer as it feels like a light moisturiser and creates a smooth base for makeup. The Liquid Foundation offers light-medium coverage and has anti-aging ingredients to help smooth wrinkles and rejuvenate skin - both are cruelty free and suitable for vegans.
