You swore it wouldn’t come to this. You were going to be better this time. But, despite the best of intentions, it’s May (how did that happen?!) and you’re staring at your calendar in horror, realising you’ve left your Mother’s Day gift shopping to the last minute.

Luckily, we’ve got you covered with a beauty lineup guaranteed to make her day. These are the extra special surprises; the self-care she really deserves, the luxuries she’s always dreamed of and the skin essentials she didn’t even know she was missing.

Here’s our guide to Mother’s Day gifts she won’t already have. Ready, set, Click & Collect!

A hairdryer like nothing she's tried before

Deserving of a spot at the top of every Mum's list? A high-tech hair tool that's the equivalent of having a pro hairstylist on hand. Make her dreams come true with the just-launched Dyson Supersonic Nural™ (a MECCA-first retail exclusive!). Featuring smart tech that automatically adapts to protect her hair and scalp from heat damage and remembers your favourite settings, this will make her getting-ready routine quicker than ever.

Gifts from the top shelf

If she’d prefer an at-home salon of the nail kind, gift her the manucurist Green Flash Routine Set. With a just-launched ‘Dark Pansy’ hue – a deep burgundy she’ll want to wear all winter – this LED set has all she needs for a manicure that lasts like a gel (but wipes off with regular remover).

While doing laundry is anything but luxurious, smelling like clean laundry might just be the definition of ‘quiet luxury’. Enter MAISON MARGIELA’s Replica Lazy Sunday Morning EDT – a scent that evokes clean sheets and sleep-ins with just a spritz. Not sure about her scent preferences? Let her explore Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Fragrance Wardrobe for Her.

Remember, luxury isn’t always about the big things. For the mum that hasn’t upgraded her makeup since frosted lips were all the rage, switch out her broken powder blush for MECCA MAX’s ultra-creamy, easy-to-blend Off Duty Blush Stick.

Pamper presents

Spa days don’t have to be a one-off! Nobody knows how to transform a shower into a self-care ritual like Flamingo Estate. Their Garden Essentials Garden Soap Set contains a quartet of olive oil-based, hand-poured slabs, with a soothing scent guaranteed to bring instant relaxation.

Complete her ‘everything shower’ with a seriously nourishing hair mask, like Sam McKnight’s Bigger Love, and a skin-smoothing set for spa-like results, like Frank Body’s Grab my (rose)hips Kit. Finally, set the mood with Diptyque’s Roses Candle, which smells just like a bouquet of fresh flowers (but lasts a lot longer!).

Magic potions and lotions

For mums that have never ventured further than cleanse-tone-moisturise, revamp their routine with The Emma Lewisham Essentials – an all-in-one kit featuring seven clinically proven formulas to plump, lift and brighten.

Is she a less-is-more type? Keep it simple with a two-step routine in the form of the MECCA COSMETICA Better Together set. Even better, this ultra-hydrating serum and moisturiser comes wrapped and ready in a reusable purple makeup bag!

If she already has a 10-step routine, top it off with the ultra-decadent face cream used by everyone from A-listers to models: Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream. Or, in case you’re worried about picking a formula to suit her skin, introduce her to INTU WELLNESS’ Sleep & Skin Renewal Powder* instead – a nightly supplement designed to help her wake up feeling re-energised and with more hydrated skin.

*Always read the label and follow directions for use.
