With Mother’s Day right around the corner - the 26 th of March here in the UK to be precise - we are turning our attention to the perfect gifts to give for Mothering Sunday. For many of us, our mums have been our rocks and it’s important to show your appreciation for all that they have done. It can be tricky to know what will be best received though, with so many options available such as chocolates, flowers, gift cards and more. To help make choosing the perfect Mother’s Day gift simple, we have put together a full guide, full of ideas and suggestions, to help you find the perfect present.
Mums are often busy people, with a household to look after and in many cases a full time job too. After having children, women find it difficult to take time our for themselves, something they were probably able to do a lot of before starting a family and creating a loving home. A great gift for Mother’s Day is one that enables them to pamper themselves for a change.
In addition to giving them high end products that they can really indulge in, give them the time that they need too by promising them to get everyone out the house for at least two hours. Dads, isn't it time you called in that babysitter? Especially if checking when they last had a night to themselves means digging out the 2016 calendar.
We love the Clarifying Clay Masque from SkinCeuticals as part of a pamper session. The non-drying face mask is deep cleansing while also healing and calming the skin- great for anyone with tired skin that needs a pick me up. It feels so luxurious on the skin and is the perfect way to relax and invest in a little ‘me time’.
If you want to pull out all the stops for your mum, when it comes to pampering nothing is better than a session with ELEMIS. With several packages to choose from, an ELEMIS penthouse treatment is the ultimate indulgence. In addition to the treatment, your mum and a guest will receive a bottle of champagne, strawberries and time to unwind in a private relaxation area. We love the Rejuvenate and Restore package, which includes a deep tissue massage, hot stone massage and the garden of England rose restore treatment.
You can also give your mum the ELEMIS experience at home, with one of our ELEMIS gift sets. We particularly like the ELEMIS Skin Solutions Hydrate set, which is great for mature skin. Working to deeply hydrate the skin, this set provides everything you need for luxurious skin care that brightens and softens the skin. Offering so much more than basic skincare, the ELEMIS gift sets feel so luxurious and are a joy to use.
Going the extra mile...
If you want to enhance your ELEMIS gift further, why not consider booking a night away in a luxurious London hotel. With the ELEMIS spa based in May Fair, our favourite pick to combine with an ELEMIS treatment is The May Fair Hotel. Just a stones throw away from the ELEMIS spa, a night here teamed with a pamper session makes for a truly spectacular Mother’s Day gift.
In addition to pampering, gifts geared towards beauty are also a fantastic idea for Mother’s Day. Many Mother’s spend most of their time putting others first, and so it’s not often that they indulge in an expensive beauty treatment or product. The best gifts are often things that someone wants, but would never treat themselves to, making beauty-focused gifts ideal.
One of the mostly highly sought after treatments on the market at the moment is HD Brows. Recently rebranding from HD Brows to High Definition, HD still offer their iconic HD Brows treatment. The ultimate treatment when it comes to brow grooming, a HD session includes a tint, shape and mini makeup lesson to make the most out of your brows.
HD isn’t just a simple brow treatment though; instead multiple steps are taken to ensure the perfect brow shape to suit the individuals face. Brows are big at the moment, and we are all being made well aware of how important the shape of the brows are to the face. Treat your mum to a luxurious brow treatment this Mother’s Day, you can find local HD salons here.
A facial is a luxurious gift any woman would enjoy this Mother’s Day. Not only can you treat your mum to a wonderfully relaxing pamper session that’s good for her skin, but you can also give her the chance to get away for the day to unwind. A great option when it comes to selecting a facial is Champneys. Offering personalised facials, you can choose from a variety of options that will be created specifically to treat the individual’s own unique skin. Browse the Champneys facial options here.
Makeup sets also work well as gifts, but with makeup being such a personal thing, how do you go about selecting something that will be well received? The trick is to choose something neutral. Many of us opt for a natural look from day to day, so the makeup kits that work best are those than enable us to create a flawless natural finish. We love the Pure and Simple set from Jane Iredale, which contains everything you need to create a beautiful natural finish while also being kind to the skin. In addition, the kit comes in four colours, so that you can choose the perfect set for your mum’s skin tone. Shop the kit here.
We hope the ideas above have given you some inspiration to surprise your mum this Mother’s Day that shows her just how much you appreciate all she does. Alternatively, if you are a Mum, forwards this post to that special someone as a hint... ;)
