What to Buy: Mother’s Day US

Since I spend half my time in New York, I’m here with a friendly reminder for all my American readers that it’s Mother’s Day this weekend in the States. So, don’t forget to spoil the most important woman in your life on Sunday 13 May! Of course, turning up on her doorstep with a bouquet and a hug will be the best present possible, but if you can’t be there in person, mail one of these beauty treats to show her how special she is to you…

Stuck on what to buy mom for Mother’s Day this Sunday 13 May? I’m here to help. If you can get to her to deliver your gift in person, so much the better but if, like me, you’re often away with work, finding the perfect gift to deliver until you can get there is all the more important. It’s no surprise that I often opt for beauty gifts for special occasions, but they’re all the more appropriate for Mother’s Day, because moms so often don’t take the time to treat themselves!

Here are a few of my current favourites…

L’Occitane 5-Piece Hand Cream Collection
How hard have those hands working for you over the years? This five-set of hand creams can be placed around her home so that she remembers to take a second for herself and keep her hands feeling soft and smooth after every chore.

Rahua Jet Setter Hair & Body Kit
Planning a special trip to spoil your mom? Make sure she travels in style with this Rahua haircare kit.

Help her home smell just a little sweeter with this Baies scented candle. A lovely aroma of blackcurrant leaves and Bulgarian rose, she’ll think of you each time she lights it.

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Sleep Time Bath & Massage Oil
The mom in questions still buried under heaps of nappies, or more of a mom-to-be? Opt for this luxury bath and massage oil from Aurelia, perfect for delicate skin.
