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

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.

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
