Mums are just the best, aren’t they? When you’re ill, heartbroken, happy, sad, or just feel like being a moany mess – they’re there. The great thing about mums is that they don’t just come in one shape or size; whether it’s a sister, auntie or nana, we have all experienced a strong female role model who has helped to make life a little more comfortable.
With that in mind, it’s time to show some serious gratitude. This Mother’s Day, let's get them something other than chocolates and flowers, because our mother figures are worth more than a last minute, unplanned splurge in a supermarket.
Below, we’ve taken the stress out of Mother’s Day shopping by compiling a list of home-spa products that are guaranteed to be used and empty by the end of next month.
If you’re going to go all out, you might as well do it with Caudalie. This deeply nourishing gift set contains an anti-ageing moisturiser that feeds even the most delicate of skin types, plus a matching firming night cream and eye cream. Particularly stressed out mamas will appreciate the infused lavender and chamomile for a true sense of relaxation.
Even the pickiest of parents can't say no to a relaxing bath. This moringa-infused bath oil and body butter set are the perfect duo for a self-pampering sesh.
We also love adding salts to our baths, and we're sure the special mother figure in your life will also love the therapeutic benefits of this mineral soak. OLVERUM's signature blend of essential oils mixes with Dead Sea salt and Kalahari Desert salt, which are high in magnesium, potassium and calcium to strengthen skin, nails and hair, plus avocado oil to soothe the body. If that's not a recipe for the best bath ever, we don't know what is.
Don't stop at a hair mask; include a face mask too for the ultimate spa experience. We always trust ESPA for the spa-inspired products, and this radiance-boosting mask is no exception. With a creamy clay formula jam-packed with nutrients like broccoli seed oil, spinach, kale and spirulina, this mask delivers a total detox every mum will love.
Elemis feature in high-class spas all over England, making this a real lavish treat for hardworking mothers. Don’t be fooled by the treatment's small size – this small but mighty product is clinically proven to smooth out fine lines, firm the eye area and brighten dark circles. The anti-ageing formula of padina pavonica, vitamins B, C and E and seaweed will give your mum all the nutrients her hard-working eyes need.
Hm, what to do while sitting around waiting for those nails to dry? Well, those tootsies need pampering, too! Sure, they may look a little daft and your mum is bound to laugh, but afterwards she’ll be treated to softer-than-soft feet that feel utterly bliss.
Bring the spa into the comfort of her own home with this ESPA Restorative Candle. Not only does this candle infuse any room with a tranquil and calming orange, lavender and palmarosa aroma, but it also contains essential oils that help soothe mind, body and soul. Perfect for when you're looking to create a relaxing moment and de-stress.
Any mum will appreciate a plumped up, refreshed complexion, we promise. With a spa-like scent, this expert face mask provides salon-worthy results within 10 minutes, making you the favourite child this Mother’s Day.
Maybe you missed out on booking that Mother's Day massage, but fear not! The Organic Pharmacy have the perfect at-home solution that relieves achey muscles whilst simultaneously reducing the appearance of cellulite. A product that improves the look and feel of tired legs? We'll take two, please!
Here's one for the stressed out mummies! Why stop at a facial massage? Give the gift of a relaxing spa treatment with this body oil that also serves as a body massage oil, enriched with damask rose extracts and rose essential oil to calm, soothe, and protect the skin.
We all know how great an Indian head massage can be, and quite frankly, who wouldn't want to indulge in one every day? The Aveda Exfoliating Scalp Brush allows for a post-shower head massage that relieves headaches whilst encouraging healthy hair growth.
