If there’s one thing that every mum has in common, it’s forgetting to take some time out for themselves, so why not remind her how much she deserves it? And nothing soothes the soul quite like a top-tier beauty routine - if yours is still feeling like a chore, it’s time for an upgrade.
The thing is, mums are pretty busy people (and so are you), so we've compiled a list of 9 best Mother's Day beauty gift ideas for you, from goodies to fill a gift hamper that says "thanks for being the best mum ever" to gifts that’ll keep first-time mums sane.
The perfect Mother’s Day gift box doesn’t exis… Wait. The gift of glowing skin is the gift that keeps on giving, which is why this collection from OTO CBD is our number one pick for the best Mother’s Day gift set. The set contains the brand’s Ritual CBD Serum, Ritual CBD Day Cream, and Ritual CBD Lip Balm. All of which are designed to hydrate, replenish, and restore skin’s natural glow.
Can’t decide between getting her makeup or skincare? Go for the 2-in-1. Colorescience’s Total Protection Colour Balm will give her the broad-spectrum all-mineral protection her lips need daily. Plus, it has a high pigment colour payoff that looks gorgeous on any skin tone. It’s probably not exactly the personalised Mother’s Day gift you had in mind, but it can be when you pick a colour you know she’ll love. Choose from Berry, Blush, or Bronze.
At-home facial? Say no more. Circadia’s highly effective actives utilise exfoliating AHAs, antioxidants, and hydrating botanicals to give skin that post-facial glow, all without having to leave your bathroom. Which, in our humble opinion, makes the ideal Mother’s Day gift box for the self-care obsessed or first-time mums who aren’t quite ready to hit the town for a facial yet.
We’re back at it with the SPF. But we can’t help it! Sunscreen is an essential skincare product that most of us (especially active mums always on the go) aren’t getting enough of. Plus, this Nutrient Day Cream by John Rosebrook won the Harper’s Bazaar 2020 Anti-Ageing Award, recognized by all mothers as a good thing. We swear you can’t go wrong with this age-defying moisturizer with SPF 30.
Is there anything more boujee than a Mother’s Day gift box that’s all about lashes? Nouveau Lashes’ Lash Indulgence Gift Set includes their best-selling Triple Enhance Lash Serum and Rejuvenating Eye Cream & Mask—aka everything your mum needs to look like a long lash goddess. No matter how busy her schedule is, we guarantee she’ll make time to use her new favourite Mother’s Day gift.
There’s no need to overthink first Mother’s Day gift ideas, since there’s no better gift for first-time mums than some extra (and much needed) Z’s. OTO CBD’s The Gift of Sleep makes the perfect Mother’s Day gift set, including all the essentials mums need for some quality shut-eye. The collection includes the brand’s best-selling CBD Sleep Drops, Mini CBD Pillow Mist, CBD Night Face Mask, and a Silk Eye Mask, all of which help make bedtime a relaxing ritual.
If personalised Mother’s Day gifts are more of your thing, put together a curated Mother’s Day gift hamper full of their favourite things (or soon to be), including OTO’s CBD Pillow Mist that’ll enhance any gift basket. It contains a blend of 20% CBD oil and 11 Ayurvedic botanicals, all designed to support sleep and induce feelings of relaxation that’ll help her to switch off after a hectic day.
Curating a Mother’s Day hand and nail gift set is one of our go-to’s for when we’re stuck on ideas. This year, spoil your mum with the best vegan nail polish from NAILKIND. The Danish nail polish brand is one of the industry’s leaders, creating 85% bio-sourced, natural polishes that are good for animals, the planet, and your nail game. Choose from soft pinks, vibrant reds, or playful blues meets fresh greens for nails she can show off beyond Mother’s Day.
If your mum likes to look put together no matter where she is, you need to introduce her to Axiology’s lipstick collection that’ll do exactly that with only a quick swipe on the lips. The all-natural formulas are packed with nourishing vegan, cruelty-free ingredients like kokum butter, avocado oil, and coconut oil. You won’t be short on choice as the collection is full of different shades, from bright pinks to mauve plums. Make it a personalised Mother’s Day gift by choosing a shade or shades that most compliment her hair, skin, and eye undertones.
