Because mum has some (seriously) good taste
We are definitely steering the hell away from monotonous and cliché Mother’s Day gifts this year. No bath bombs, sorry. Home-made cookies. Nope (ain’t nobody got time for that). And no bouquets, puh-leez.
We have rounded up some serious top-notch products that you will be trying hard to resist the urge to not keep for yourself.
1. If your mum loves expensive china | Jo Malone London Red Roses Cologne and Candle
Basically, anything from Jo Malone London is stunning. It’s packaged beautifully, smells delightful, and makes our mums feel like the royal majesty queen herself!
Red Roses Cologne $232 for 100ml, $116 for $30ml | $68 for the Red Roses Travel Candle (pick the ones you like and ask the lovely people at Jo Malone London to pack it up as a gift set)
2. If your mum loves gardening and fresh flowers | Shiseido Ever Bloom Fragrance
Every couple of months we come twirling back to this fragrance, because it is SO DAMN GOOD. Fragrance is definitely a personal choice, but hey, it’s you, you know your mum better than anyone else right? If soft floral notes is her thing, then she is going to love this one. It’s floral but also feels fresh and sexy. The full run-down is here in case you want to find out more. Seriously, take our word for it. She will treasure this one!
Shiseido Ever Bloom Eau De Parfum, $139 for 50ml, $199 for 100ml
3. If mum is a crafty-goddess| Natural fragrance making workshop with Perfume Playground
This is a delightful and personal experience that any mum would enjoy.
Samatha helps you to get fully into the experience and have fun layering with different notes. The result—a fragrance made by you, especially for you, and its 100% natural. You can both walk away with something special and discover how similar or different your fragrance choices are. Sharing this experience with mum, followed by dinner at Coco's Cantina. Lucky mums, eh!
Intro club pop-up $115 per person, and if you decide to go back for another workshop then it's $65 for returning members.
4. If mum loves to be pampered | Signature Facial or Sans hair treatment with blow dry at Stephen Marr Hair + Skin
Start her morning with this, and you are sorted for the rest of the day! Followed by a coffee date or brunch or nothing. She will still be pleased as punch with the pampering itself.
Stephen Marr salon provides a holistic approach to beauty and only uses the best range of products. So you know your mum is in good hands!
ps : This is a goodie for people like me who live overseas and flying 16 hours might be a wonderful surprise, but tbh, mum would be as happy with an hour-long pampering sessh.
Stephen Marr Signature Facial $240 - light therapy and vitamin infusion | Sans hair treatment + styled blow dry $80 (only for Mother's Day) | Contact details
5. If mum enjoys fine wine | La Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask
That forest green bag with La Mer goodness inside is sure to assure your mum just how much you love her!
La Mer is a splurge, yes, but if you want to set the bar high and give your mum the best in skincare, then don’t look anywhere and walk straight into La Mer. The two-step brightening mask is a wonderful treat, as it’s something you could both enjoy together. Night in with wine and masking? Win-win.
Warning: she might not want to share this one.
La Mer Two-Step Brilliance Brightening Mask, 30ml primer and 50ml mask, both for $395
