MOTHER, I LUXE YOU: GIFT GUIDE

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Like spring days, less layers and the frantic sudden need to book a summer holiday, Mother’s Day is just around the corner. I hope you’ve booked in some time to spend with the woman that birthed you to life this coming March 6th, as obviously quality time is the best gift a daughter can give her mum.

Should you find yourself apart this year, my Mother’s Day Gift Guide has plenty of rather luxe treats which are good consolation prizes if you can’t be with her in the flesh. Double points if you give one of these gifts in person though!

Guerlain Abeille Royale Nourishing Treatment

Guerlain is one of my mums favourite makeup brands. Although she tries to act all organic eco-queen when it comes to her skincare, I know she covets high end beauty just like the rest of us. The Royal Abeille skincare range is one of my most fav lines of skincare. I am a BIG fan of the Night Cream (review here). This super luxe face oil is like nectar on the skin. Honey has awesome repairing power and this light serum/oil feels cooling on the face. Massage into skin before applying night cream to firm and tone skin. Any mother will feel like the Queen Bee using this elixir.

UGG Scuffette Slippers

I feel like this is a no brainer. UGG are the leader in comfort and luxury footwear so a slipper variation can only mean major mum points this Mother’s Day. The Scuffette version comes in a slip-on design with an exposed sheepskin cuff and soft and fluffy genuine sheepskin lining. They comes in a variety of colours also and are available from Amara.com who I am currently obsessively pinning homespo ideas from. Check out their gift guides here.

Ormonde Jayne Champaca Perfume

Ormaonde Jayne makes some of the most luxurious and exquisite perfumes and are only really available from the most haute of shopping destinations, think Selfridges beauty hall and Harrods perfume rooms. The Champaca absolute, which comes from a tiny pale orange flower from India, is an elegant and creamy scent. I love it because it has a touch of exoticism about it but feels warm and airy at the same time. The myrrh and tea add a touch of smokiness and the bamboo and basmati makes it oriental. Overall it’s a lovely scent and when I smell it reminds of the warmth and familiarity of my mum.

If your mother is downright fabulous and has refined tastes of her eau de parfum then I readily recommend the Ormonde Jayne perfumes.

Top notes: neroli, pink pepper, bamboo

Middle notes: champaca, freesia absolutes, basmati notes

Base notes: myrrh, green tea notes, musk

Jo Malone Candle in Red Roses

This is the first ever Jo Malone appearance on my blog, which is saying something as a beauty blogger! It’s well known that a Jo Malone candle is the mark of a generous and classy gifter. The Red Roses candle, which comes immaculately wrapped in the signature black and ivory box, looks and smells very special. Rose is so very now and so very classic at the same time. All Jo Malone candles comes with a very smart box of long matches as well, which beats having an ugly plastic lighter lying around.

Face Gym Gift Card

My wild card of the gifting bunch is a Face Gym Gift card. I was lucky enough to try out one of their Face Camp plans last month and it was one of the best treatments, wait no, experiences I have ever had in my life. If you thought a full body massage or facial was something to write home about, I’m telling you you ain’t tried nothing til you’ve booked yourself a Face Gym session with one of their very talented therapists. These hand goddesses have the ability to relax and unwind the entire body through pummelling, sculpting and massaging your face, applying pressure to points of tension whilst using a really lush and expensive collection of products.

They offer their Signature Workout which involves a ‘high-intensity’ circuit of fast whipping to detoxify the skin, sculpting to contour muscles, topped off with a cooling moisture bath. 30 mins for £40. Alternatively take advantage of their Mum & Me offer and book a side by side special 45-minute Signature face workout and receive a free scalp massage and Mimi Luzon face mask for just £40 each.
