Mother's Day Gift Guide

By Miss Makeup Magpie
Mother's Day is almost upon us in the UK, so we've compiled an ultimate Mother's Day gift guide to help you choose the perfect gifts.

I can't quite believe how quickly this year is speeding by as it feels as if Christmas was only last week. Amazingly enough, Mother's Day is almost upon us in the UK as it's on the 26th of March this year, but Mother's Days do differ across the globe so don't panic if you're not in the UK. Considering how close Mother's Day is, now is the time to start thinking about potential gift ideas. Mothers Day is such a great opportunity to spoil and treat our mums, and let them know how special they are so we've scoured the site and chosen our favourite products which we think will make for perfect gifts for your mother, mother-in-law or any other significant women in your life.

Yankee Candle Home Fragrance

I always think candles are a great gift idea as they're so universally appealing and most people love a good candle. I really rate Yankee Candle as a candle brand as they have so many different scents so you're guaranteed to find something your gift recipient will love, and they're so beautifully presented within their glass containers regardless of which size you choose. If you know what kind of fragrance your mum likes, you could choose something along those lines but if you're unsure what she'd like, I'd recommend something very clean and fresh such as the Yankee Candles Fluffy Towels Candle. Who doesn't like the smell of fresh laundered linen? The Fluffy Towels scent is so fresh and clean, and I think it's just perfect for this time of year as we transition into Spring. Yankee Candle describe their Fluffy Towels fragrance as being a blend of lemon, apple, lavender and lily and to me it really does smell of freshly dried laundry which has just come off the washing line and I can't imagine anyone not liking that comforting, smile-inducing scent.

Schwarzkopf Haircare Gift Set

When it comes to deciding upon gifts for my mum, I always like to treat her to some luxury haircare products as I know she'd never splurge on specialist haircare for herself. The Schwarzkopf Bonacure Moisture Kick Set would be such a great gift idea as you get three full size products which come with a cute bag too. If you're unsure of your mums specific hair type, I'd recommend going for a more nourishing haircare formula, and the Schwarzkopf Bonacure Moisture Kick range is suitable for those with dry, brittle or normal hair so it covers most hair types. The Schwarzkopf Bonacure Moisture Kick Set contains a 250ml size of the shampoo, a 200ml size of the Spray Conditioner and a 200ml size of the Treatment Masque inside a fantastic faux leather wash bag which looks and feels luxurious and would be perfect for holding toiletries when travelling.

If you'd rather opt for an haircare gift for a more specific hair type such as colour treated hair or greasy hair, you could always put together a few specialised products and make a DIY haircare hamper instead for a more personal touch. If however, your mum has normal, dry or brittle hair the Schwarzkopf Bonacure range is ideal as it helps to improve and regulate the moisture balance of the hair, and the products contain an hyaluronic acid derivative which rebalances the moisture level of the scalp and hair to smooth the hair's surface and prevent dehydration. I think this would be a really good suit-all haircare gift as the products have somewhat of a lightweight formula which is designed to improve the hair's hydration whilst also improving suppleness, manageability, bounce and shine.

Dove DermaSpa

If you're feeling stumped on what to buy your mum this Mother's Day, I think Dove are a good brand to consider as their products are so affordable and are well loved by many. I remember buying my mum Dove gift sets when I was a child with my pocket money and even now I still buy Dove gift sets as you really can't go wrong. The Dove DermaSpa Goodness Gift Set would be perfect for any age as it contains a selection of skin loving products within a beautiful gift box, which has a more luxurious vibe to it then perhaps the standard Dove gift sets. The products within the set belong to the Dove DermaSpa collection which is their more premium range of products and I think the packaging reflects that really well but because it's Dove, it's still very affordable.

The Dove DermaSpa Goodness Gift Set contains three Dove DermaSpa products as well as a beautiful manicure set within a white compact. The manicure set consists of some nail scissors, tweezers, nail clippers, a glass nail file and a cuticle pusher, and the mini tools are of high quality so it's a nice addition to the set. Product wise, the set contains the Dove DermaSpa Goodness Indulgent Hand Treatment, Dove DermaSpa Goodness Body Lotion and the Dove DermaSpa Goodness Body Cream; all of which are full size, which makes this giftset even better value.

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference

If you're on a budget, I think Dove gift sets are a solid gift idea but if you're willing to spend a little more, I cannot recommend the Elizabeth Arden skincare sets enough as Elizabeth Arden is such an amazing higher end brand. The Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Gift Set is guaranteed to put a smile on your loved one this Mother's Day, and again it's another beautifully presented gift set. Elizabeth Arden grace many vanities across the world with their luxurious yet effective products and this particular set would delight existing Elizabeth Arden fans or those who are completely new to the brand as it contains four generously sized skincare treats. I think gift sets like these are always so handy as they allow you to be able to try multiple products at once without having to splurge on the full sizes, and I always appreciate it when gift sets come with a bag or pouch, and this set is no different. The four Elizabeth Arden skincare treats are packaged within a super sleek, silver zippable pouch and the products within the pouch are designed to cleanse, smooth and nourish your skin to leave it balanced, revitalised and refreshed.

The first product within the kit is a 50ml size of the Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser, Visible Difference Skin Balancing Toner 50ml, Visible Difference Skin Balancing Lotion SPF 15 30ml and lastly the Visible Difference Optimizing Skin Serum 5ml. I particularly like that this set essentially gives you a whole skincare routine with really decent sizes, so you can fully try each product and decide whether or not you'd like to purchase the full sizes. The Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference range is highly praised and claims to give visible results within just six days so you know that the products are going to be effective too.

Versace Eros Perfume

We couldn't possibly do a Mother's Day Gift Guide without including a fragrance, and our perfume pick is the stunning Versace Eros Eau de Parfum which is one of the UK's bestselling fragrances right now; and for good reason too. Versace are such a reputable brand especially in the world of fragrance, and the packaging and bottle design of Eros is seriously impressive. The bottle has been designed to resemble a golden Greek coin with the Greek key and Eros design featuring on the front of the bottle. Versace Eros Pour Femme is a stunning statement scent which is guaranteed to receive compliments with top notes of; sicilian lemon, calabrian bergamot and pomegranate, a heart of lemon, sambac jasmine absolute and peony with a base of sandalwood, ambroxan and musk. Not only does Versace Eros impress in terms of bottle design and the fragrance itself, it also boasts considerable longevity at around six to seven hours and we think anyone would be thrilled to receive Eros as a gift especially as Eros is the Greek god of love so it's very apt indeed.

So they are our top five product picks this Mother's Day. We really hope it's given you some gift inspiration on what to buy, and would love to know which gifts you've got planned for Mother's Day?
