Mother’s Day Gift Guide
23 February 2020
Mother’s Day is about showing your appreciation to the important person in your life who helped make you who you are today. Whether it be your Mum, Step Mum, Nan, or anyone else who helped to nourish, guide and support you, show them you care with a thoughtful gift this Mother’s Day.
While every woman is different, there are undeniably a few ‘types’ who are tricky to buy for. In our Mother’s Day Gift Guide, we’ve hand-chosen products to make gift-buying a breeze.
The Busy Bee
Her diary is bursting at the seams and she always has somewhere to be. For the Busy Bee, the most precious gift (short of finding more hours in the day) is the gift of relaxation.
A Neom candle makes the ideal thoughtful present for the hard-working woman in your life. Available in five unique scents, try Calm & Relax, which uses ylang ylang, frankincense and patchouli to create a calm atmosphere in the home.
The Natural Mum
If you have a mum who is conscious about the environment and trying to make greener choices, choosing the right gift can be a daunting task. Thankfully, when it comes to Mums who value the healing properties of natural ingredients and eco-responsible packaging, Philosophy has everything you need.
The Mum Who Has Everything
When it comes to the mum who has everything, you have to roll out the big guns. The chances are if she wants something, she’s already bought it, so you need to go a step above and find something she didn’t even know she wanted. Perfume is perfect for fulfilling this tricky brief.
For a beautiful fragrance that won’t break the bank, Ghost Dream more than delivers. Multi-award winner, its floral oriental scent combines top notes of water and rose with deeper musk, jasmine and orange blossom. Or, if you’d rather push the boat out on a luxury fragrance, you can find our top picks at the end of this article.
The Mum Who Doesn’t Sleep
Whether she’s a new mum who you want to acknowledge on Mother’s Day or your own mum who has a touch of insomnia, we all know someone who struggles to get enough sleep. Thankfully, this is one of the easiest people to buy for, as there is a fantastic range of sleep-inducing products available.
