Mother’s Day gift ideas for all beauty lovers
These beauty-related Mother’s Day ideas are perfect for beauty lovers of all types.
I do not know what to do? These Mother’s Day gift ideas are perfect for beauty lovers who deserve a little sweetness and decadence.
For lush luxury:
Tom Ford Rose De Chine Eau De Parfum Spray 50ml, $399
The scent is one of those Mother’s Day classics: it’s personal, and probably something she wouldn’t buy for herself.
Tom Ford’s new Private Rose Garden fragrances are like a very special, long-lasting bouquet, and they look chic on the dresser, too. Designer moms will love it.
* What your favorite nostalgic lipstick says about you
* Eight of April’s best beauty releases
* Shop: Pretty jewelry to offer for Mother’s Day
* Tomato candles are all the rage, and here’s where you can buy one
For the fashion obsessives:
Hermès Plein Air blotting papers, $70
From a practical standpoint, these help mattify the skin and reduce shine. But the thing is, they really do come packaged in an orange Hermès box, an entry into the world of Hermès luxury.
If your mom has ever dreamed or joked about owning a Birkin bag one day, this would make for a sweet (and let’s be honest, a little ridiculous but lovely) gesture.
For the mom who needs to relax:
Aēsop Body Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm, $49
At first glance, a body balm might seem like too practical a gift, but when it comes from Aesop, it combines elegant packaging with everyday use.
The rejuvenating option, with its citrus and vanilla scent, will be like a handy little reminder for her to take some time for herself.
For the mother whose place of happiness is her garden:
Unforgettable Greenhouse Gardenia candle 380g, $90
French for “unforgettable”, this new gardenia-scented candle from the Australian brand will evoke memories of gardens and intoxicating summer scents. Because what mom doesn’t love gardenias?
For home lovers:
Santa Maria Novella scented pomegranate, $135
A slightly random but delicious take on home fragrance, this handcrafted terracotta pomegranate is designed to be displayed as an object, while perfuming the air with the brand’s popular floral/spicy melograno scent.
For history buffs:
Trudon Marie-Antoinette Bust decorative candle, $199, from around the world
It may have a wick, but this intricate 22cm wax figure of the doomed French queen is made to be displayed as an object rather than burned.
For the mother who shows her love through the kitchen:
DS & Durga Breakfast Highlands candle, $106, from Mecca
Another candle, but this one rejects the floral norm and instead interprets the idea of a cozy breakfast in Scotland, and translates it into fragrance.
Warm and spicy with notes of oats, cookies, hay, scotch marmalade, strong tea, smoked things, heather honey, toast and gorse, this is the one for mom with a sense of humor. And who love a group brunch.
