With Mother’s Day coming up at the end of this month, we’ve done the hard work for you and tracked down the gifts we think she’s sure to adore. From beauty care to sweet treats and a tipple or two, there’s something for every leading lady in your life…
Super Facialist Rose Hydrate gift set
Give your mum the gift of great skin with this chic gift set from Super Facialist, scented with indulgent rose. This mini four-step routine features a creamy cleanser, complexion-boosting scrub, radiance day cream and nourishing night cream, to help her achieve a healthy and glowing complexion. Plus, it’s housed in a super-cute washbag that’s perfect for travelling.
Miller Harris Reine de la Nuit candle
Upgrade her home fragrance to something a little bit more luxe, with a glamorous Miller Harris candle. ‘Reine de la Nuit’ is a warm, ambient scent that will help the home feel luxurious in an instant, combining tuberose with mimosa, violet and amber to create a rich and sensual perfume that will last for forty fragrant hours.
ORO V gin
Delicately flavoured with French lavender, we think mums will love a G&T (or two) made with this unique Scottish dry gin. Try it with elderflower tonic, a few slices of lemon and a sprig of lavender for the perfect cocktail to celebrate.
Max Factor ‘Your Time to Shine’ gift set
Does your mum love to get glammed up? Then she’ll love this sophisticated set from Max Factor, including three full-size classic products to help her feel her most polished. The set includes the Masterpiece Max mascara for a full flutter, a soft Masterpiece palette packed with ultra-flattering neutral shades, and a Lipfinity liquid lipstick in bold red, for a classic scarlet lip.
PURE Spa & Beauty ‘Mum’s the Word’ spa package
One for you, one for mum! Give her the gift of some quality time with you this Mother’s Day, and book in for a relaxing pamper afternoon at one of seven Scottish PURE Spas. Enjoy a facial and a massage, as well as use of the spa facilities to help you both unwind – plus you’ll enjoy complimentary fizz and chocolates, and mum will leave with a free skincare gift too.

Otro’s ‘meal for two’ voucher
We’re sure anyone would love this one – a meal for two, whenever you fancy it! We think she’d love a gift voucher for upscale Otro in Edinburgh, where she can spend it on an indulgent meal for two if it’s date night, or even treat the fam to a classic Sunday lunch.

Mums of any age will love using this indulgent oil from skincare wizards Time Bomb. With powerful calming and anti-inflammatory properties and skin superfood ingredients enveloped in a healing silky formula, the Glow Oil will soothe and smooth her complexion and help her to awaken her skin’s inner incandescence and uncover a radiant and rested complexion.
STORIES No.1 fragrance
Fragrance is such a special gift to receive, so why not introduce her to something new to always remind her of you? Stories No.1 is a delicate floral fragrance that opens up to a deeper, warmer ambience, with notes of orange blossom and bergamot, swirled with sandalwood, jasmine and amber. If you really want to treat her, you can buy her the matching body wash and lotion too, to lock in the scent for hours on end.
Marks & Spencer Afternoon Tea gift selection
We’re not all lucky enough to live close by to our mums, so if you can’t manage to take her out for afternoon tea this year, why not send it to her instead? M&S’s gift selection includes teabags, shortbread, jams, cake and truffles, as well as a beautiful bouquet of roses – and you can have it delivered to her door.
Natural Beauty Pot Aromatherapy Bath Salts gift set
We all know how hard mums work, and if yours deserves to relax at the end of each day, treat her to a gift set of natural aromatherapy bath salts. These soothing salts use Epsom salt and magnesium to create the feel of a hot spring in her own bathroom! Rose will help her feel her most gorgeous, lavender to help her fully relax, and calendula and lemongrass to revive and re-energise her spirit.
