What do you get the women in your life who already have everything? Whether it's a gift for your own mother, or a mother's day gift for your wife from your own children, we've got you covered.
I love gift buying and wrapping. For me the packaging can be as much of a treat as the gift inside and that's especially true with Swiss botanical brand Arbonne. But more importantly is what's in the packaging and how it works, that all mothers will love this Mother’s Day (or any day of the year!).
I love the Arbonne ethos of pure, safe, beneficial, which means all their products are created with botanical ingredients. They then use safe, green science, to enhance what nature has provided and undertake independent clinical studies to show their efficacy. There are not many beauty brands that can make those claims which means their products are an extra special treat to give as a gift for your mum.
So what's on my list of must have Mother’s Day treats? I’ve picked out a selection of potential mother’s day presents that I know I, as a busy mum would love, and that my mum, who’s retired but still wants to look and feel young, would love too – there’s something for everyone!
Arbonne’s RE9 anti-ageing range
This range is perfect for mum! Arbonne’s RE9 anti-ageing range is their flagship line and has been for the past 37 years. It’s been clinically tested and proven to help improve skin firmness in just 24 hours. Most big cosmetic companies only do perception tests where a panel of testers get to answer a questionnaire asking how the products made them feel. The independent clinical trials that Arbonne undertakes are way beyond this meaning you can have complete faith in the brand and in the products you are about to treat the most important woman in your life to.
The RE9 formulas are powered by nine major age defying elements plus breakthrough botanicals like sea buckthorn oil which supports supple tone and beech tree bud extract which smooths the appearance of wrinkles.
It works really effectively as a six step process that takes you from cleansing through to toning, adding a serum and moisturising the face, around the eyes and morning and night. Each product also stands alone so if your budget can’t stretch to the full range opt for one or two key products and let the lady choose to top up with new products as she runs out of what’s already in the bathroom. She’ll be super excited you introduced her to this amazing brand and certainly thank you for it.
So what are my must haves that also make great gifts for Mother’s Day? I love it all but if I was going to start anywhere it would be with the cleanser, serum and moisturiser.
Here are my top picks for Mother’s Day Gift Ideas:
RE9 Smoothing Facial Cleanser (£33.00)
This is a rich, pearlescent crème formula which gently washes off makeup and impurities leaving skin feeling smooth and refreshed. Amongst other things it contains that amazing botanical Sea Buckthorn, which supports supple tone and smooth looking skin, as well as algae extract. It makes a fantastic mother’s day gift that uses natural ingredients to achieve the best results.
Full of collagen supporting ingredients that are clinically tested to hold in moisture and help visibly firm and lift while lessening the appearance of fine lines. What’s not to love about this amazing product? If you bought nothing but these two products you mum or wife would be over the moon.
These two day-time moisturisers are concentrated formulas which not only moisturise but help prevent sun burn. Both have collagen supporting ingredients and botanicals to help capture a youthful appearance – something every woman wants. The ultra-hydrating crème for drier skin moisturises deeply, supports collagen and protects the skin’s youthful appearance.
If you’re out of your depth buying beauty products for the face but still want to ensure your mum or wife knows how special she is to you, then why not treat her to a beauty product which you can share. I love the Arbonne Aroma essentials products. They blend art and science and use the century old art of aromatherapy to create either uplifting or relaxing scents which are sure to please.
My favourites are the Sea Salt Scrub (£26).
This amazing shower product is designed to energise will gently slough off dead skin cells while in the shower or bath to reveal brighter, youthful looking skin – perfect if your mum deserves a bit of pampering!
Or for a relaxing bath to help your loved ones unwind at the end of the day reach for the relaxing scents of lavender in the Unwind Bath Salts (£20). These mineral rich salts will help your mum or wife take some well-deserved me-time at the end of a busy day. It’s the perfect end to a Mother’s Day weekend.
If you’re still completely at a loss as to where to start this Mother’s Day, please get in touch. I’d love to help you get the gift you desire and make another woman’s dreams come true this Mother’s Day.
