WHAT DO MOTHERS WANT? - Gift Ideas For Mother's Day
WHAT DO MOTHERS WANT? – Gift Ideas For Mother’s Day

So, what do mothers really want? Given the fact I’m a mother, I consider myself fully qualified to answer this question!

First, I think we’d like to feel that you’re grateful for what we put our body and mind through by having children. Therefore, a gift and a nice card is an absolute must.

Second, all women love to feel beautiful. But of course, feeling beautiful is individual. For some it’s as simple as sleeping in, having a long aromatic bath or getting a manicure. Being a mother, I know how hard it can be to find time to take care of ourselves. So don’t think for a second we don’t appreciate any extra alone-time you give us.

And so this is my winning formula:


And here are some of my gift ideas to make any mother feel special:

Cryotherapy Session And Lunch In Harvey Nichols

A Cryotherapy session will leave her energetic and in an uplifted mood for the rest of the day. This is on top of the many health benefits of this treatment – and it’s a fun thing to try! After the session, you can even continue the celebration with lunch on the fifth floor of Harvey Nics.

GUCCI Large Tiger With Bee Scarf

I love this silk scarf’s striking illustration: a lion worthy of triumph at a gladiatorial contest roaring savagely as the label’s trademark bees approach from the four corners of its world. Bordered with a tonal double stripe, this piece will make a striking addition to her Spring / Summer accessories collection.

Aurelia Aromatic Repair & Brighten

They say that you can tell a lady’s age by looking at her hands. This exquisite, scientifically-advanced hand cream helps to diminish signs of pigmentation, while deeply hydrating and nourishing skin for brighter, softer, younger-looking hands and stronger nails. I particularly love this hand cream because it smells just divine!

Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil

This indulgent bed-time treat will allow her to experience a tranquil and relaxing night’s sleep! Aromatherapy Associates’ multi-award winning Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil possesses deeply relaxing powers of Vetivert, Camomile and Sandalwood. Camomile helps calm the mind and body. Vertivert acts as a natural sedative and Sandalwood comforts. This is what any woman needs after a long day.

This cleansing brush can make her life so much easier – the less time she spends getting ready for bed, the more sleep she’ll get. And this is just the gadget to help. This brush offers beautiful skin at home or on-the-go. The Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften and smooth skin. In just 60 seconds, the action removes more make-up and dirt than cleansing with hands.

YOLKE Water Lily Stretch-Silk Pyjama Set

I promise she’ll love sleeping or lounging in this luxurious featherweight silk pajama set.  I love the stylish water-lily print. The timeless relaxed fit makes this set comfortable enough for a princess!

Meso Infusion Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Micro Mask review

Meso Infusion Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Micro Mask

This mask is one of latest and most innovative masks, hence the price. It has a self-dissolving micro structure technology that allows the anti-aging ingredients to penetrate deep into the skin, as they would with Mesotherapy treatment. As a result, the mask delivers unrivaled anti-ageing results. It’s loaded with pure Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C (powerful antioxidant), which deeply moisturize skin and erase pigmentation.Mother's day, gift ideas, my beauty insider, mbinsider

SAINT LAURENT Logo Flap Leather Wallet

Saint Laurent’s iconic ‘YSL’ logo made a come-back a few years ago and it looks like its here to stay, at least for a while! It’s the perfect gift if you’re looking to purchase something more substantial for her, and it’s a timeless.

GUCCI Princeton Leather Slider Sandals

If she’s a fashionista, I promise you she’ll be over the moon at the sight of these Gucci sandals. Minimalism meets refined luxury! Sumptuously crafted from butter-soft leather, this pair will be the perfect, easy-to-wear addition to her wardrobe. But beware… Other women in your family may have some serious envy issues!
