Ladies, I don’t mean to alarm you but Mothering Sunday is fast approaching. This year, it falls on Sunday 15th March, which I regret to inform you is only a few days away! But remain calm! We have compiled a list of helpful suggestions that will allow you to avoid that last minute panic. This year step away from the usual flowers and chocolates and opt for a gift that will provide your Mum with the indulgence she truly deserves! So without further ado, here’s our top 5 gift guide for the big day…
Mums are superheroes. They selflessly deal with everything that is thrown at them, and still come out fighting on the other side. So on this day of honouring our greatest female role models, why not allow them a little time for themselves to pamper and indulge in some well-deserved TLC. Enter Thalgo, and their Polynesia Gift Box, a brilliant set guaranteed to leave our mothers feeling blissfully relaxed. The box comprises of three signature products that are based on the healing beauty traditions of the Polynesian region. We are especially taken with the exotic island body scrub, which promises to leave skin feeling intensely soft and cleansed of impurities.
Moroccanoil with its repairing qualities makes it a ‘must have’ for any woman. So knowing how busy mums are, these products are great for cutting styling time while still providing long-term conditioning. For the avid travelling mother, those thoughtful people at Moroccanoil have developed a Nourish & Style Travel Set to cater for those who are constantly on the move. This handy set comes complete with Moroccanoil oil treatment, moisture repair shampoo, moisture repair conditioner and luminous hairspray, which just so happen to be all under 100ml, making them the perfect carry on solution! Any mum would be thrilled to receive this gift that also comes in a stylish faux leather carry case.
Everyone loves candles. Who wouldn’t, they are glorious creations and can instantly add life and charm to any home. That being said, Kevin Murphy have developed an excellent present option in their FRESH.YOUNG.ANGEL trio of soy candles. This simple but thoughtful gift is bound to put a smile on any mums face and at the current reduced price of £20 it won’t break the bank. Each of the limited-edition candles is fragranced with the signature Kevin Murphy scents. ‘FRESH’ embodies the aromatic aroma of geranium and pink grapefruit while ‘YOUNG’ is infused with essences of orange flower and yellow balm. Last but by no means least, ‘ANGEL’ uses the heavenly tang of tangerine imparted with chamomile flower and vanilla.
We are all too aware that being a Mum can really take its toll. The stresses of raising children would age even the most resilient of women, so anything that promises to fight these signs I’m sure would be received with the most hospitable of welcomes. Hands in particular, are susceptible to the first signs of ageing, in many cases even more so than the face. Therefore, their maintenance is crucial. Lucky for us, Nailtiques have developed a fantastic moisture gift kit, which provides all the necessities for keeping those hands looking and feeling young. Presented in a gorgeous box, the set includes a highly concentrated hand conditioner, which is primed with pure aloe and jojoba oils to keep hand and cuticle areas hydrated for baby soft skin. It also includes a glass nail file, which can easily be popped into a handbag for any nail related emergencies!
Our final recommendation for the perfect Mothers Day gift comes in the form of Silk Fibre Lash Mascara. Applying fake lashes everyday is simply not an option for the time-pressed mothers of the world, but this mascara helps achieve the same effect minus the time and fiddly frustrations. I cannot emphasise enough just how incredible this product is, it can actually lengthen the look of lashes by up to a staggering 150%! We know your Mum would be delighted to receive this innovation in lash technology, and what’s more, she might even let you borrow it as well.
There is still time before Mothers Day to snap up these amazing products from the Salon Look, so hurry up and get buying and you’ll have one very happy mummy!
