Friends, it’s that time of year again where we are called to celebrate the most important women in our lives. While some of you may not have realised in lockdown that the calendar rolled over this weekend to the gorgeous month of May, the dawn of the new month means another holiday is right around the corner. You guessed it, Mother’s Day is only a few short days away!
If this news has sent you into a mild panic, and for those who were certain we still hadn’t left March, we here at Beauty News have got you covered. It can be difficult to come up with the perfect gift for the perfect woman, so we took the liberty of collating a list of sure-fire pressies to make your mum smile on her special day that you can organise without having to leave the house!
Hands up if a go-to present you have bought your mother in the past was an easy-to-organise spa voucher? No? Well you should really consider it sometime, they’re great. Of course this year, presents that involve specialist treatments are out of the question, but this doesn’t mean your mum has to miss out! There are a wealth of at-home beauty products and treatments you can buy that will have her feeling as relaxed and refreshed as if she’s spent the day at the salon.
Our top beauty picks to surprise your mum are:
BrowKo Thicc Sized Brow Soap
Having been in lockdown now for over a month, it’s no question that some of our brows are in dire need of a little TLC. To bring your mum back to feeling her beautifully groomed self, we recommend BrowKo’s Thicc Sized Brow Soap, a vegan, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic god-send that promotes brow health and thickness without the need of a beautician!

Lancome Hydra Zen SPF15 Routine Set
In these trying times in 2020, we all need a little zen in our lives. This year, you can bring the day-spa home to your mother with Lancome’s Hydra Zen Routine set, a luxurious range of products set to make her feel like she’s just stepped out of a professional beauty therapist’s office! You can shop this product here.

Around-the-home gifts to make her day
While beauty products can make great Mother’s Day gifts, some of our mum’s may appreciate the simpler things in life. There are also a wealth of great buys for around the home you can gift your mother with this weekend that will make her isolation time all the more enjoyable.
Mud & Gee Tea and Bath Salts Sets
Some of our mothers are wise and knowledgable women, who know that the best way to relax is curled up with a good book and a freshly-brewed cup of tea, or soaking in a warm, glorious tub. And, if for some reason your own mother hasn’t discovered the restorative powers of these two pastimes, why don’t you buy her a gift that shows her what she’s been missing? We would personally recommend Mud & Gee’s ‘Best Mum Ever’ Black Chai Tea just for that extra touch. You can shop this product and Mud & Gee’s collections here.
Nigella Lawson’s ‘At My Table: A Celebration of Home Cooking’
You’d be hard-pressed to find a mother on earth who loves to cook and doesn’t love Nigella Lawson just as equally. Whether it’s the calming-sultry voice or the fact that the woman never met a meal she couldn’t perfect, this lady is more than likely a rockstar in your mother’s eyes. While this book has been around for a few years, what better time than when we’re all stuck in our homes to gift your mother with the holy grail of at-home cooking books? You can shop Nigella’s masterpiece here.
Cute and Quirky Succulent Planters from Succtus
Boasting a huge range of small, medium or large planters for all types of succulents or cacti. Succtus have a wide assortment of designs ranging from cute animals pots, ceramic classics and unique garden decor, so you can find something to suit anyone’s style! These would be perfect for a home garden or more space-conservative apartments. Spoil Mum with a special planter and make her isolation celebration a memorable one! You can view the full range from Succtus here.
Shweshwe Roots DIY Jewellery Kit
If your mother loves all things DIY and crafts, we may just have the gift for you. While at-home isolation has prevented us from being able to give our mum’s experiences rather than gifts, Shweshwe Root’s DIY Jewellery Kits have the perfect solution for combining the two. To provide your mum with a bonding experience she will treasure, DIY presents offer the gift of a lifetime, and you can shop their products here.
