Not another ‘Best Mum’ mug…

If you’re as lucky as I am to have a wonderful, caring, glamorous mother who deserves a beautiful gift this mothers day, then let me help you with some easy-peasy gift ideas, because I’m pretty sure she doesn’t want another set of jammies…

These ideas all come from personal beauty shopping experts at MyShowcase, where all the brands are organic, cruelty free and as natural as they can be. Products arrive beautifully packaged in white tissue with a big pink silk bow, straight to you door, no need to wrap!

The captions are links to find out a bit more about the product so go and check them out! 


Sheet masks are all the rage these days with the rise of Korean beauty products, however this one from Maskorea takes the standard sheet mask to a whole new level. This is the ultimate indulgent facial experience with a full 3 step regime. Step one is a foaming pre-mask cleanser, step two your serum-infused cellulose sheet mask, followed by a post-mask anti-ageing night cream. Your mum deserves this after putting up with you!

If she’s not such a big fan of the creepy and slightly slimy sheet mask idea, treat her to this rich, organic glowing mask from Evolve Beauty. This mask contains clay, natural sugar extracts, raw cacao and coconut granules to gently exfoliate and rejuvenate, leaving your doting mother with smooth, glowing skin. Best of all, you only leave it on for 5 minutes, so if your Mum is as busy as mine, she’ll always have time for this one!

Don’t you just love this tube?! This amazing 2-in-1 uses kaolin white clay to mattify and purify, refining over all skin texture, so if your Mum’s skin is on the oily side, this is her mask. It also doubles as a scrub, so should be used once or twice a week so as not to aggravate. Another 5 minute wonder, so great for busy Mums!



Those of you who know me will likely have heard me talking about this candle possibly more than once if we hang out often enough! I adore this La Montana candle, it smelly kind of sweet, but also minty and musky and eugh it’s just amazing. I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t deserve to own this candle, which means it’s about time your Mum had one.

If your Mum has a slightly more sensitive taste in fragrance, the Kukui collection would be great for her! A slightly softer scent than the others, this candle, room/linen spray and body lotion set is the epitome of class and sophistication, and provides a delicate yet enticing scent of Hawaiian flowers. So if she appreciates a fine smelling room, body and bed sheet, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better gift than this.

Beatitude is the ultimate in luxury aromatherapy brands. Based in East Lothian, they use only 100% natural pure essential oils in all of their products, and their candles are no exception. This comforting candle is made with eco soy wax and contains the perfect arrangement of floral, citrus and herbal notes, which will fill up your room for up to 60 hours. Help your Mum get the ultimate chill time in with this one.


This beautifully packaged primer provides a one step makeup effect by blurring any fines lines and wrinkles and providing a pearly luminous glow – I mean, who doesn’t want all of that?! For speedy Mums on the go, this is a must have, and for £12, you can’t say fairer than that.

After using the Kure Bazaar Natural Manicure Ritual, there’s nothing better than a few coats of a beautiful on trend colour like this deep cool grey; so chic, so stylish. This nail lacquer is 85% natural and free from formaldehyde and other nasties, making it non-toxic and densely pigmented. I used a wacky green colour they have for a wedding last year and it lasted me the whole following week, which is seriously impressive seeing as I can barely keep shellac on for two days! Treat your mum to some funky furnished finger tips this Mothers Day.

For those glamorous Mummas out there – a gorgeous warm berry eye shadow palette complete with applicators (as if any one has time for that!). A neutral cream, matte light brown, satin dark brown and a sparkly pop of something plummier, these colours compliment one another perfectly and with look show-stopping at your Mum’s next night out with her pals!

And to top it all off…

At the very least your Mum deserves a card for all the grief you’ve given her! Why not make it this one from English Graphics?

Happy Mothers day to all you yummy mummies out there!
