8 Mothers Day gift ideas guaranteed to make you the favourite child
Okay, smartypants, you’re an only child so you’re the favourite child by default? WRONG! When it comes to Mother Day gifts the competition is real. The lady that your mum met at the hairdressers got flowers, chocolates AND a card from her son. He’s now everyone's favourite child and you are in the bad books.
Well not this year, this year you’re going to turn it around with a thoughtful and unique present that you can buy in a few clicks and will arrive in time for the big day. That wonderful woman has done a lot for you over the years, it’s time to say thank you.
Essentially 3 gifts in one and it comes in a pretty display box...winner! Any perfume by Thierry Mugler is always a hit but we think that there’s something a bit special about Aura. It’s super sophisticated, with notes of Orange Blossom, Bergamot, Bourbon Vanilla and Sandalwood.
A photo of the distinctive and fierce emerald green heart bottle will be sent to all her friends when she tells them how great you are.

Suggesting that your mum needs some anti ageing cream might seem a recipe for disaster but you’ll soon be forgiven once she tries this light and hydrating day cream. The subtle scents of White Hibiscus and Baobob along with its naturally plumping and firming qualities make it a winner in our eyes.
There’s chocolate, and there’s CHOCOLATE! Long gone are the days where a battered box of Milk Tray will suffice, it’s time to step up your chocolate game. This sophisticated selection of fairtrade dark chocolate bars not only taste delicious but come in the most gorgeous display box.
It’s hard to pick a favourite flavour but there’s definitely something moreish about the Sea Salt and Caramel bar, especially with the slightly crunchy texture of the cacao nibs. Heaven!
Over the years your mum’s hands have worked hard taking care of you, now it’s time for you to take care of your mum. Clarins have released this luxurious limited edition hand cream that’s perfect as part of a skincare regime or for on the go. The Jasmine scent is fresh and rejuvenating and hydrates even the tiredest of hands.
Face masks are in right now and Andalou is the top of the game with superior quality ingredients and stem cell science behind their magical little mask pods. By the time you’ve made her a cup of tea (or something stronger if requested) the mask will be ready to come off to reveal your mum’s brighter, firmer and happier face.
The winter feels like it has been dragging on forever so unless you’ve planned a surprise Caribbean holiday for your lovely mum then this is the next best thing. Just one application of Bondi Sands silky liquid gold tanning oil will leave your mum’s skin looking radiant and lightly sunkissed just in time for summer. Which is right around the corner. Honest!
There’s nothing more relaxing than floating in a deep bubble bath so this gift set is perfect for when your mum needs a bit of ‘me’ time. The bubble bath creates masses of luxurious bubbles and who doesn’t love a bath bomb for a swirl of fizz and colour?
If you want to go the extra mile then the Nacomi Sunny Orange Sorbet Body Butter is a perfect end to the perfect bath.
You probably spent a lot of time wiping lipstick off your face after your mum gave you an embarrassing kiss on your cheeks as a kid but don’t let that put you off this gift idea. The flattering and subtle shades of the Coquette and the Sensual lipstick suit all skin complexions and can be worn every day. Then there’s the cheeky red Boudoir lipstick because even mums get to go out sometimes and they deserve to feel great.
