The best Mother’s Day gifts to treat your mum to

From a thoughtful fragrance to a pretty pampering set, Katie Wright rounds up this year’s most gorgeous Mother’s Day gifts.

With all that they do for us, our mums definitely deserve more than just a card on Mothering Sunday, so show Mummy Dearest how much you care with a present from her favourite beauty brand.

From scents to sets, these are gifts that will make mum’s day...


Not only are face masks super-trendy (it’s the most Googled beauty term this year so far), they let you and mum indulge in some pampering time together.

Choose one of these active- packed luxury offerings and don’t forget to post a ‘maskie’ photo on Instagram!

* Bee Good NectaPerfecta Beautifying Mask, €47.95 

* Charlotte Tilberry Goddess Skin Clay Mask €48 Brown Thomas 

* This Works Stress Check Face Mask, €31.30 free p&p)


There are a host of new spring fragrances that smell as good as they look, like Narciso Rodriguez’s punchy pink Fleur Musc and Jo Malone’s brushstroke-embellished Bloomsbury Set collection (we love the fresh and floral Blue Hyacinth Cologne).

* Jo Malone Blue Hyacinth Cologne, €56 for 30ml, Brown Thomas 

* Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris, €83.50 for 90ml Debenhams 

* Narciso Rodriguez ‘For Her Fleur Musc’ Eau de Parfum, €83 for 50ml, Debenhams (


They may seem a bit like the lazy option, but when gift sets are this good, you’d be a fool not to...

If your mum is a Protect & Perfect superfan, she’ll love the Advanced Collection, while Lush’s Best Friends box is packed with brand new bath bombs, plus some old favourites.

* Trilogy Limited Edition Perfect Pick-Me-Up Gift Set, €25.60 plus p&p)

* Sanctuary home is where the heart is gift set, €26.50 Boots 

* No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Collection Travel Kit, €37.50, Boots 

* Lush Best Friends, €33.95, Lush stores 


Bringing stunning scents that linger long after the flame has gone out, scented candles are the perfect accompaniment to a long, hot soak in the tub, and the beauty brands have really outdone themselves this season.

From the new limited-edition Gourmand collection, the Molton Brown Vanilla & Violet candle is a sweet, floral delight, while the Jo Malone Home candle is made up of layers of lime, basil and mandarin.

* Home Collection Pomegranate votives and diffuser gift set, €22, Debenhams 

* Molton Brown Gingerlily Single Wick Candle, €49 (

* Annick Goutal Eau d’Hadrien Candle, €56.32 free p&p)
