Of all the annual holidays, Mother’s Day is arguably one of the most important. Raise your hand if you're a mum yourself... and discovering first hand that raising your kids can *at times* be a thankless job...

At allbeautyHQ, we might be a little bit sassy and fearless, but there's no doubting that our mums did a pretty good job (if we do say so ourselves). So, showing our mum how much she means to us isn’t a task that we take lightly.

This year, instead of panic-buying expensive socks, why not treat your mum to a thoughtful gift when she’s least expecting it.

In fact, why not give one of the below gifts for Mother’s Day and the others at random times throughout the year?

Whether you're a mum who needs to treat herself or if you're looking for a fancy gift to treat the leading lady in your life... Go on, she deserves it.

Add a fancier atmosphere to her living room

Whether your mum has retired or isn’t quite at that stage yet, she’s likely to spend more time at home than she once did. By nature, as we age, we tend to enjoy our creature comforts more and appreciate the little things in life, like the comfort of a favourite armchair or the routine of a nightly TV line-up. Why not add to the ambiance by gifting her a scented candle? Choose the right fragrance and you’ll add a whole new element to the room, enveloping her home in a warm scent that adds to the atmosphere. For safe options,  you can never go wrong with a candle or reed diffuser from Jo Malone.

Give her the gift of a good night’s sleep

How many sleepless nights have we given our mums over the years? Well, why not make up for it by helping her drift off with ease this Mother’s Day? Thisworks is an award-winning company that produces a range of sleep-inducing oils, diffusers, balms and pillow sprays. The Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, in particular, has a fan following, with 97% of people surveyed reporting they felt more awake the day after using it. With lavender, chamomile and vetiver, the fragrance blend relaxes body and mind, improving sleep quality and reducing restlessness. 

Let her know you’re thinking of her

It’s the little things that count, and nothing is quite as impactful as being surprised with a gift when you’re least expecting it. We love the idea of slipping a gift-wrapped goody into mum’s handbag for her to find later. It doesn’t have to be an expensive or ground-breaking gift, something as simple as a hand cream can be just as appreciated.If you’re looking for a product that looks as luxurious as it feels, you can’t go wrong with Neom Organics Scent to Make You Happy. It contains mood-boosting essential oils, designed to lift spirits as well as nourishing the skin. Or, if her hands are particularly dry from gardening and other hard-wearing activities, try something more powerful like this Shea Butter Intense Hand Balm by L’Occitane.

A touch of the spa, at home - because spoiling mum is the ultimate WOOHOO feeling

When was the last time your mum enjoyed a day at the spa? Treating her to a spa day would be the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, but if you can’t, or if she’s not one to indulge in the rest and relaxation that spa treatments offer, there are plenty of other ways to bring the experience to her. A good-quality body scrub is a fantastic way to indulge in some pampering. Aromatic, invigorating, exfoliating and hydrating, scrubs offer an at-home treatment with minimal effort. Opt for a brand that can be found in the top spas, such as this Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Scrub from REN Skincare, or the Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow from Elemis

Give her bathroom an upgrade

No, we're not talking about a full bathroom renovation, though that would seriously earn some brownie points; we're talking soap. Forget buying the same old hand soap from the bottom shelf in the supermarket, year in, year out. This year, why not replace her depressing bar (or bottle) of hand soap with something a little more luxurious?There is such a wide range of decadent hand washes that the hardest part is narrowing it down to a shortlist, but  Molton Brown White Mulberry Hand Wash and L’Occitane Shea Butter Verbena Liquid Soap come pretty close to the top. L’Occitane gets bonus points for having an eco-refill option, but that Molton Brown bottle is all class.Whatever you do to show your mum how much you care this Mother’s Day, remember to appreciate her throughout the year. After all, without her, you wouldn’t be who you are today.
