Mother's Day Gift Guide - Sunday, 8th May
I have carefully curated this Mother's Day gift guide with your mum in mind, no matter what her age, passions, personality or style. It includes beauty products and other pieces which I love and I know your mum will love too!
So to my mum, new mums, grandmothers, mother figures, loved ones and amazing women doing their thing to support and nurture one and other - I wish you a Happy Mother's Day.
PERFECT GIFTS FOR THE MUM WHO...
LOVES TO BE PAMPERED
I have always been a fan of the Jurlique range and their new 'Beautiful Rituals' packs are a great gift for Mother's Day. Each pack is specifically designed for either the hands, face or body and contains three products your mum will love! Made with organic ingredients for beautiful, healthy skin, these packs are perfect for at home pampering!
WANTS TO STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES
Released just in time for Mothers Day, The Body Shop's new 'British Rose' collection celebrates natural beauty and is infused with roses which are organically grown in the heart of the English countryside. From hand cream to fragrances, their new body care range will give your mum petal-soft skin and is available in store and online.
Spoil her with a 'Bowl of British Rose' gift pack or create a custom gift to suit her style.
'Bio-Oil twice a day will keep stretch marks at bay!'
Like they say 'prevention is better than the cure' and Bio-Oil is perfect for reducing the possibility of stretch marks, uneven skin tone and dehydrated skin - all factors expecting mums might experience during or after their pregnancy.
Bio-Oil is formulated to keep the skin supple and helps to reduce the possibility of stretch marks forming during periods of rapid change in body size. During pregnancy, simply massage into the abdomen, hips, breasts, lower back and upper thighs twice daily from the start of the second trimester.
Available in 3 convenient sizes, perfect for home and travel, Bio-Oil is the ideal gift for the mum-to-be!
IS ON THE RUN
'Your mum will be kissing you with thanks in no time!'
My mum is always putting the family first, which doesn't leave her much time for herself, so she likes to keep her daily beauty routine simple but still wants to use products that will get results.
Now your mum can have that naturally pretty lip colour, the anti-aging hydration of a super luxe treatment lip balm, and a powerful stain that doesn’t dry out her lips thanks to the 4-in-1 Vitality Lip Flush from iT Cosmetics. Formulated with plum oil, cherry oil, shea butter, aloe and jojoba, these good-for-you ingredients all work together to treat, hydrate, condition and nourish your lips - perfect for the mum on the run!
LIKES TO RELAX
There is nothing more relaxing than a warm bath, but I love to mix it up by adding my favourite bath bombs from LUSH.
Available in a range of different colours, formulas and sizes - these bath bombs create an explosion of colour, fizz and excitement and take bath time to the next level!
Simply add the bath bomb or a portion of the bath bomb (depending on its size) to a warm, running bath and watch it work its magic as it swirls around the tub unleashing gorgeous aromas and sometimes a hidden surprise!
I have only recently started using them but I am obsessed and ensure I always have a back up bomb at all times!
WOULD PREFER A BOUQUET OF BRUSHES
'Beautiful You. Beautiful World.'
Swap a bunch of flowers for a bouquet of brushes this Mother's Day!
Introducing my mum to good quality makeup brushes has changed her life! She can now see how investing in the right tools can create a flawless finish using a fraction of the product!
The EcoTools Four-Piece Beautiful Complexion Set is the perfect gift and contains a mattifying finish brush, skin perfecting brush, eye perfecting brush and correcting concealer brush. Each brush is dermatologist tested and has soft, cruelty-free bristles and sleek bamboo handles. Plus the packaging transforms into a gift box with a ribbon and tag so no gift wrapping is required!
'She will love her very own custom creation!'
What do you get the mum who has everything? Custom lipstick of course!
Located in Paddington Sydney, The Lip Lab is the very first company offering custom blended lipstick solutions. For $55 you get a one-on-one consultation with a professional colour consultant to choose your colours, flavours and finish and in less than 15 minutes your new lipstick is ready for you to pucker up and apply!
This is the hottest destination in town so book now to avoid disappointment!
'Mon Purse By Jodi'
The new Mon Purse By Jodi Collection is perfect for the mum with style! From the Bucket Backpack to the Double Zip Pouch, these leather accessories in this seasons hottest hues are to die for!
Jodi Anasta (Nee Gordon), known for her role in Home and Away and as Myer Ambassador, has collaborated with Mon Purse to design her signature handbag collection. From colour ways to styles, she has been involved in the complete creative process and the result is a range of fashionable statement pieces which you can customise to suit your style.
Not only can you select the leather, lining and hardware colour of each piece BUT you can monogram it with your mums initials for that extra special touch.
'Jewellery that redefines. Designed to inspire authenticity.'
I recently came across Willow & Hunt on Instagram and I am so excited their online store has launched just in time for Mothers Day! Their collections consist of beautifully designed pieces in a range of finishes from rose gold to matte black.
But the collection which I think resonates perfectly with Mothers Day is 'AEGIS' which means protection and support and is 'dedicated to women who enrich others with their love, patience and never-ending support.'
I could not have said it better myself and I know a few new mums that will suit this range to a tee!
'By Dreamers For Dreamers'
Throughout the years I have purchased Blacklist prints for my home and they have also made for perfect gifts. Husband and wife team, Nathan and Jaynie Johnson from Sydney, create the most incredible prints made up of hand-written type, pictures of paradise and foiled elements which come together to create works of art.
These stylish and artistic prints are the perfect way to express your love while supporting local talent, something I strongly believe in.
Plus with the option to select from three frame colours (black, white, wood), they will complement any home or office.
But just like any other holiday, I don't believe there should be a specific day to celebrate our mums. After all they did give us life! So make sure you tell your mum you love her on the daily and don't take those little moments for granted.
