Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Nothing is too much for Mum!

Luxury Mummy Spa Kit – £39.99
For mums of all ages, Love Boo have put together three of their best-selling products (Bosom Buddy, Miracle Oil and Silky Soft Body Wash – all paraben free) to leave her skin soft and nourished.

Dolce Parfum by Dolce & Gabbana – from £45 
With top notes of neroli leaves and papaya flower, heart notes of white amaryllis, white daffodil and white water lily and down notes of cashmeran, and sandalwood, Mother will be very happy to receive this beautiful looking and smelling scent.


Honeybell White Jasmine Natural Candle – £15
Honeybell Soap’s organic candles contain a combination of Palm, Soya and Rapeseed oils which are bought from ethical material sources. The Palm oil comes from Malaysia and the UK supplier is a founder member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, both promoting best practise and ethics in the sourcing and production of palm oil. This size candle has a burn time of 40-50 hours and at this price, it’s a must buy.

NUXE Rose Petal Cleansing Range – from £12
Mature skin can be slightly more sensitive but this gorgeous range from French brand NUXE cleanses without stripping and leaves skin with a delicate rose scent. My favourite profucts are the Gentle Toning Lotion (£13.50) and the Micellar Water (£14.15). If she doesn’t know about double cleansing yet you need to teach her!


Clinique New Turnaround Concentrate – £32
New Turnaround Concentrate from Clinique has been upgraded with a formula that enhances the cell renewal and maturation process – for effective and visible results. Surface imperfections are reduced and skin is smoothed thanks to Chestnut Extract, Salicylic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) and Sodium Hyaluronate, capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water.

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Soft Cream – £18
L’Occitane launched this new collection of shea butter creams back in February but I think they’d make great gifts for Mum. Older skins tend to be drier and these creams (with 10% shea butter) nourish and moisturize without leaving the skin greasy.

Clinique 16 Shades of Beige

16 Shades of Beige is a gorgeous collection of soft nudes for eyes and nails from Clinique.


The nail collection boats a nude for every skin tone (I have ‘do not disturb’ and love it) and has been specially formulated for sensitive skins.

The limited edition eye palette helps you go from barely there to full on glamour with one product. You can mix, match and layer as the shadows are crease and fade resistant.

A Different Nail Enamel For Sensitive Skins – £12
Limited Edition All About Shadow 8-Pan Palette – £32

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

According to the scientists at Clinique, our ‘skin is programmed to fine tune its rhythm for the next day at night time. During these hours, skin also becomes vulnerable to water loss and a compromised barrier function.’

My face took such a battering from the wind and snow today; walking to London Bridge train station literally made my skin sting! I needed to treat my face to some goodness, so I made sure that tonight I had a good night time skincare routine.

This new Moisture Surge Overnight Mask works like a good night cream (so don’t rinse it off) and it contains ingredients like aloe barbadensis leaf water to hydrate and calm the skin, trehalose and sorbitol to prevent dehydration, sodium hyaluronate; a polymer which helps plump and smooth the skin, shea butter, mango butter and pomegranate sterols to moisturise; and algae and caffeine to smooth and calm the skin.

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

Depending on your skin type, you might find it too rich in the Summer but for winter, it’s just what you need. I have combination skin and it didn’t make my face feel greasy on application or in the morning.

The Moisture Surge Overnight Mask smells gorgeous and after just one nights wear, I could see the difference in my face. My skin felt ridiculously smooth, fresh and hydrated and even Mr 32 Boroughs remarked that I looked well. Considering my 2 year old woke me up at the crack of dawn, I can’t put it down to a good nights sleep!
