We think mothers deserve to be celebrated each and every day, but for those who want to do a little something extra for your leading lady this Sunday, look no further than our comprehensive guide here.
However, flowers, cards, and restaurant bookings are the easy bits. Gift-giving, however, still remains to be an art few have mastered. With the past year being more challenging than ever, mom deserves more than a stalk of carnation or another mug. Instead, opt for a gift that will help her to put her best face forward, so she’ll look just as good as she feels.
These Mother’s Day beauty kits have been specially curated to address all her concerns — from wrinkles and pigmentation to oxidative stress and tired skin — and we’re pretty darn sure they’ll even land coveted spots in her beauty routine long after.
For the lady who appreciates the finer things in life — think a glass of bubbly and a beautifully scented candle — this set gives her not one, but two fragrances to unwind with, alongside a bottle of Veuve Clicquot. The Vanilla & Sandalwood Dual Candle is one of the perfumer’s best-selling home fragrance, and perfectly sets the mood for the Yellow Label champagne it comes with. The convenient gift set also comes with a candle holder and a pair of champagne glasses.
If mom’s too busy for one of Porcelain’s sharable one-for-one facial treatments this Mother’s Day, this might be the next best thing from the lauded local spa. The Timeless Complexion Kit is a curated selection of its best-sellers, each promoting hydration and antioxidants to her daily routine for healthier and softer skin that ages gracefully. The full routine consists of the brand’s Hydro Cleanser, Deep Hydrating Lotion, Natural Skin Refiner, and two Bio Cellulose Masks, alongside a facial Gua Sha tool for better circulation and lymphatic function.
With a dedication to creating bespoke regimens, Yours takes skincare to the next level by creating personalised serums and creams with Swiss actives like Matrixyl and Ameliox. For Mother’s Day, the brand’s Blockbuster Set comprises the Day & Night Set (with personalised Day and Night serums and creams), as well as the Cloud Factory Gentle Foaming Cleanser and Bounce Back Balancing Toner, so mom’ll have her full, bespoke regimen down pat.
Created for ladies who embody femininity and strength, the Chloé Signature Eau De Parfum captures the spirit of women with its fresh floral fragrance. Here, top notes of pink peony, freesia, and lychee evoke freshness and are perfect for the year-long summer here. The fragrance then evolves with mid notes of magnolia flower, lily of the valley and rose, before culminating in a base of velvety elegance via cedar wood, amber and honey. This complete set comes with an adorable miniature and lotion of the same scent so your leading lady will always smell divine.
Busy working moms who want to take skincare to the next level will find there’s plenty to love in this curated set. Expect an introduction to the bestsellers within this dermatologist-approved brand; the Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight cream, for example, helps with skin texture and brightens the complexion, while the Serum 10 is packed with vitamin C to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Other stellar products mom would appreciate include the Resveratrol BE — a nighttime anti-aging serum that’s packed with pure resveratrol to enhance radiance and firmness — and H.A. Intensifier to promote firm and smooth skin.
For the mom who’s always adventurous and experimental, this Cool Mom Kit is a smorgasbord of products from lesser-known cult beauty brands that she’ll enjoy trying out. The daily essentials selection includes everything from a body cream by Augustinus Badar and a lip and cheek balm by Olio E Osso, to a de-puffing eye mask by 111Skin. A Revolve Beauty pouch comes with so she can take her exciting new loot with her wherever she goes.
Ole Henriksen knows a thing or two about giving people their long-lost glow back, so this is one that mom will surely appreciate. This set of three vitamin C skincare bestsellers — the Truth Serum, C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème, Banana Bright Eye Crème —provides youth-boosting results with collagen and Banana Powder-Inspired Pigments, which instantly illuminate and improve the appearance of ageing skin.
There’s nothing quite like a pampering bath after a long day’s work. This adorable kit comes packed with Drunk Elephant’s best-ofs for the hair and body, each promising to revitalise and restore even the driest skin. The limited-edition starter kit even comes with a comb and neon clear pouch, which will no doubt have plenty of mileage when travel restarts.
