Thoughtful Gifts for Mum

Share Article on:

Remember to show appreciation to the woman you love on Mother’s Day. This special occasion always seems to catch us unprepared! If you have already asked mum what she wants for Mother’s Day, then you’ve probably received the standard response “You don’t have to get me anything.” Of course this is not the time to take mum’s word for it. Giving nothing in return to the woman who gave you the gift of life would not bode well for you, so it is totally understandable if you’re feeling the pressure to find something that she will love and actually use. We have compiled a list of gifts that are guaranteed to make mum smile. From pampering beauty products to stylish fashion accessories, we’ve got you covered.


1. Lancôme Absolue Soft Cream

Treat Mum to luxurious skincare with Lancôme's Absolue Soft Cream. This anti-ageing moisturiser is infused with an exclusive blend of Grand Rose Extracts for accelerated skin cell renewal and ultimate skin regeneration. The unique “thick-thin-thick” (TTT) formula transforms from a thick nourishing cream to a thin serum-like consistency, and back to thick again as skin is plumped from within. The cream melts and absorbs beautifully into the skin, as fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced. The result is a glowing and rejuvenated complexion accompanied by the light scent of French roses – an Absolue treat for tired skin. For best results, pair with Absolue Rich Cream for the most pampering experience for your skin.

2. Sigi Skin Love Your Skin Kit

Sigi Skin Love Your Skin Kit offers a full pampering session for Mum. It comes with an overnight Dream Capsule, 50ml sleep mask and Tea-Tox sheet masks, 8 sheets. The former contains bakuchiol, a 100% plant derived retinol alternative that boosts collagen and reduces the appearance of fine lines, while the latter visibly brightens the complexion with probiotics, cold pressed yuzu extracts, kombucha and sake extracts. The sheet masks soothe irritation and restore the skin’s natural microbiome after exposure to environmental stressors and pollution. Plus she gets free Bunny Ears to boot – a thoughtful addition to keep hair off the face when masking up.

Tip: Apply any excess serum on the décolletage to reap extra benefits. Each sheet mask is soaked in a generous 27ml of liquid.
