With Mother’s Day 2023 coming up soon (the date is May 8th in case you were wondering), the best beauty gift options are simple. They should come from brands that mother dearest is already familiar with to take the stress out of guessing, be beautifully designed to show that you really care, and if she wants something a little out of the ordinary, be experiential in a way that delights her.
Aside from taking your Mum to see all the best things of the month, add the cherry on top with a well-thought-out present. Here, we have rounded up some of the best of the best in this Mother’s Day 2023 gift guide—all for your gifting pleasure.
1. For the Moms Who are Heroes
If your mother is a hero to you be it with her selflessness or spunk, Chanel’s Mother’s Day 2023 activities will be one of the best beauty gifts for her. Match your mother’s character to a fragrance—Gabrielle for the unconventional or Cristalle for the classic—and if you’re a mother, pick something nice for yourself while your kids can participate in activities like Spot the Difference or Colouring and Connecting the Dots.
2. For the Moms Who Love Romance
Anything from Dior Beauty from the Dior Addict Lip Glow to the Dior Capture Totale Le Sérum is guaranteed to please a beauty-addict mother but if she is also a romantic, the House’s Mother’s Day packaging is guaranteed to sweeten things up. Featuring a symphony of roses and a gold iron trellis on its front as designed by Italian artist Pietro Ruffo, it’s a beautiful way to tie things up and show her that you truly love her.
3. For the Moms with a Classic Style
For the mothers with a classic style from the way she dresses to her insistence on dining etiquette, the Jo Malone Highlands collection is a great starting point for gifting. Featuring equally classic fragrances from the woody aromatic Melancholy Thistle to the sparkling citrus of Wild Achillea, an old-world touch can be added with the brand’s personalisation service at Ion Orchard: add a dried floral topper or decorate the box with floral stickers.
4. For the Low Maintenance Moms
For moms with a low-maintenance skincare routine, you might want to help them stock up on Paula’s Choice products which are efficacious as they are efficient in use. This time around, the American brand has a 20% off their best formulas with a complimentary Ultra Smooth Glow Duo with every purchase of RM300. With the famed Liquid Exfoliant and the UnScrub, mom’s about to unlock a whole new level of glow.
5. For Moms Who Already Have Everything
If your mom already has everything and purchasing her a gift is proving perplexing, consider the Aesop Mimamori (Japanese for someone who tends to watch over and protect others) gift set that contains a body cleanser, body balm, and hand balm. The reason? Firstly, nobody will reject one of the most aesthetically pleasing brands when gifted it and secondly, if your mom truly has everything, there’s a high chance she’ll need a refill of these most-wanted products.
