A Mother’s Day gift for every type of Mom.

How do you celebrate your mom? The truth is that most of us don’t do it regularly enough. From juggling a family, to upholding a career, to managing a household, hobbies and friendships, moms do it all, and they deserve all the appreciation in the world.

Mother’s Day is around the corner and there’s no better time to treat mom to a gift she’ll really love. We’ve put together a Mother’s Day gift guide with something for every mom – no matter what her interests. Plus, we know that times are tough, which is why we’ve included something for every budget:

For moms who love a self-care session

There is no one as deserving of a pamper session as a mom. A little bit of time by herself, indulging in a luxurious bath or beautiful beauty products is the self-care she needs to rejuvenate her mind and body.

Tree Hut is known for their incredibly scented body scrubs and whipped body butters, not only because of their fragrances, but also for their clean formulas filled with natural, skin-loving goodness. Why not treat Mom to a scrub and body butter duo in her favourite scent? We recommend the classic Tree Hut Moroccan Rose Body Scrub (R349.00) and Whipped Body Butter (R349.00) for floral-loving moms or Tree Hut Watermelon Body Scrub (R349.00) and Whipped Body Butter (R349.00) for moms who prefer a fruity fragrance.

If Mom loves taking a bath, she’ll love a beautifully scented bath soak. Earthsap Milk & Honey Bath Soak (R83.00) and Wild Rose and Lavender Bath Salts (R68.00) leave skin feeling soft and nourished and are delicately scented to make the bath water extra luxurious. They’re filled with natural ingredients, offering a more eco-friendly way to unwind. 

If Mom is into aromatherapy, you need to introduce her to SOiL’s Remedy Rollers, a selection of organic essential oil rollers that can be used for everyday wellness or to address particular concerns. They can be used on-the-go (they’re small enough to fit in a handbag) or as part of your home self-care regime. The Wellness Remedy Roller Trio (R150.00) offers three rollers designed to promote good health, while the Everyday Remedy Roller Trio (R150.00) is designed to ease the ups and downs of daily life. 

Looking for a gift set that won’t break the bank? Bramley’s limited edition Mother’s Day Gift Sets (R39.99) are available in the warm and earthy Shea Butter variant as well as the classic floral Magnolia variant, and each set contains a 100ml Tissue Oil and 250ml Body Butter. These pampering products, enriched with Bramley’s unique, signature Bio Pharm oil as well as vitamin E oil, provide protection and nourishment at a steal. 

For moms who are serious about skincare

Why not elevate Mom’s skincare regime with a nourishing face mask that not only feels great on her skin, but also offers plenty of hydration? We love SKNLogic’s Multi Regenerating Masque (R360.00), which is rich in hyaluronic acid, jojoba seed oil and shea butter, as well as vitamins C, E and A to increase cell renewal, collagen production and healing. 

If she’s into sheet masks, then Hada Labo Tokyo Moisturizing Facial Sheet Mask (R58.99) is the one. It contains the brand’s signature Super Hyaluronic Acid to lock in moisture, boost hydration and leave skin feeling and looking refreshed.  

For moms who love a beautifully scented home

A home fragrance product is always such a treat, and one that most moms will absolutely love. If she’s into candles (let’s face it, who isn’t?!), we recommend SKNLogic’s Body Candle in Fig (R320.00), an ultra-moisturising candle that can be used as a massage oil or body oil when melted. The oil can be applied anywhere on the body and is filled with the goodness of fig extract, olive oil, beeswax, shea butter and vitamin E. 

If Mom doesn’t have a home fragrance diffuser yet, now is the time to treat her to one. The SOiL Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser (R650.00) uses water and ultrasonic vibrations to disperse your favourite SOiL essential oils into the air via a fine mist. It’s super simple to use and clean, and is low on energy. You can use it with any of SOiL’s essential oils, and if you’re not sure to start, we recommend going with one of their blends like the De-Stress Blend (R125.00) or the Sleep Blend (R150.00).

For active moms

If Mom enjoys her sports or workouts, chances are her muscles can do with some TLC. Up her Epsom salt game with Tree Hut’s Shea Moisturizing Epsom Salts in Coconut Lime (R325.00) or Tropical Mango (R325.00). Filled with magnesium sulfate (known to help ease muscle discomfort), shea butter and a variety of vitamins, these luxurious salts help revitalise tired and achy muscles while nourishing your skin.

For moms who go the extra mile to care for their pearly whites

We should all be taking our dental hygiene routines seriously, and if Mom has a liking for the finer things in life, than an introduction to Philips Sonicare may be in order. Available in a gorgeous royal purple or ombre diamond, the new Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 Toothbrush (R3899.00) will allow her to start her day in style. Powerful enough to give an exceptional clean, yet gentle on teeth and gums, this luxe toothbrush makes use of BrushSync technology to automatically select the right mode and intensity for your needs.

Above all – no matter what your choice of gift – remember to give Mom the ultimate gift this Mother’s Day by telling her how much she means to you.
