Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

A selection of spring beauty picks

With Mother's Day just around the corner, I've rounded up my pick of some beautiful gift ideas from every beauty hall and house. From candles to make-up and even lovely soap, you'll find something for mom right here...

Ren Mother’s Day Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil, £30.00
One of my favourite bath oils, this one from REN is special because it disperses into a milk as it hits the water, meaning it spreads easily through the water. This is such a treat for any mom who loves a bit of ‘me’ time, and REN have even personalised a limited number of bottles to say ‘Mum’s Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil’. Get them while they’re hot!

Mum's Bath Oil

Creme de la Mer The Moisturising Cream, from £105
If your mom loves taking care of her skin, this little pot of magic will be the ultimate treat from her. With a fresh, clean scent and a rich, comforting finish, you’ll make her skincare ritual a joy to indulge in. However old she is, she’ll see the benefits of using this. From 24 to 62, we all love this in my house. Did you know that you can get a facial at your local Creme de la Mer counter for £50 which is redeemable against purchases? Why not book her in for a facial and treat her to her favourite cream afterwards? (I’d recommend visiting Nancy at Urban Retreat in Harrods if you’re near to London.)

Creme de la Mer

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Beauty Collection, £39
It’s a universal beauty product and one that my mom taught me to love. This gift set, encased in a red glossy vanity case, contains the original formula alongside other variations for hands, body and face. 8 Hour Cream is such a great one for any mom because they have to put out fires left, right and centre and this luxury balm can be used to heal a multitude of sins.

8 Hour Beauty Collection

Clinique Cheek Pops, £16.50 each 
These gerbera shaped blush pots are as pretty on your dresser as they are on your face. Available in four wearable shades, they’re perfect for a gentle summery flush of colour.

Clinique CHeek Pops

Fragonard Sweet Pea Box of Soap x 4, £12.50
As if the M&S Beauty Hall couldn’t get any better, they’re now stocking Fragonard which means we now have easy access to affordable, fine fragrance. This little box of four Sweet Pea soaps comes in a bright floral package and will keep her going into the spring.

Fragonard Soap

The Body Shop Lip Butter Lollipop, £15
The Body Shop brought out these little lollipops for Christmas and I’m so glad they’ve stuck around because they’re so sweet! A little heart shaped lollipop contains five lip butters, each in different delicious flavours, perfect for any busy mom. Keep one in each place that you need – by the bed, in your purse, on your desk… wherever else you might wish.

Lip Butter Lollipo

Sophie la Girafe Cosmetics Skincare Starter Set, £22.95
I spotted this on Twitter last night and nearly took the next train to Harrods. The Sophie giraffe is a beautiful, natural toy for your baby, and now Sophie has got her own baby friendly skincare products! This will make the most unique, special treat for any new mom and her baby.


Diptyque Insolite Candle from Liberty, £45
An exclusive collaboration between London’s quintessential beauty hall and the worldly Diptyque, this zesty candle will add a soft spicy aroma to any living room or bedroom. She’ll love the packaging, too; an eclectic mix of prints, reminiscent of the haberdashery section of Liberty.


Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick, £24 each
These are the loveliest lipsticks I’ve tried in a long time. With an old fashioned ‘lipstick’ scent, a creamy consistency and a long-wear colour pay off, they are total beauty luxury. Opt for a muted pink like Insatiable Ivory or Intense Nude for a classic shade that she’ll wear day in and day out.

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 15.55.22 vouchers, from £10
If you just can’t decide what to get her, you can’t go wrong with vouchers from They have everything in one place with fast, free delivery, and beauty’s finest Newby Hands is on hand to offer tips and suggestions in their editorial section. Let her choose her own perfect gift this Mother’s Day.

Whatever you treat your mom to, don’t forget the most important thing – a lovely card. You’ll find the most beautiful selection at Liberty or Selfridges.

Have a lovely Mother’s Day!
