It's Friday, which means the weekend is almost here! Friday also means it is just over one week until Mother's Day! Haven't got your Mum anything yet? Fear not, bellabox has got you covered. We have created our very first limited edition Mother's Day bellabox, as well as compiling a list of the best of the rest beauty gifts out there. So whether your Mum is the sporty kind, or prefers to stay at home primping the house, there is a beauty gift out there that your Mum is sure to love!
The Sporty Mum
The sporty mum loves to keep fit and healthy. She can be a gym junkie, a fierce contributor to her netball team, a yoga fanatic, an aspiring golfer, or she could even just love a great walk outdoors! No matter what activity your mum loves, why not gift her with some choice 'active'-friendly beauty products? Here at bbHQ we cannot recommend replacing yours and your mum's regular hairties with twistbands enough! Your mum's hair and wrists will be thanking you, as twistbands don't snap or pull at hair, and are nice and comfy when worn at-the-ready on your wrists. We also recommend Herban Essentials Essential Oil Towelettes for refreshing touch ups on the go. Naturally antibacterial and antiseptic, these sweet smelling towels come in a variety of scents and are made with the highest quality, pure essential oils.
Glam mums love to get dressed up and aren't afraid to keep their fashion and beauty looks up to date whilst also looking stylish and appropriate. If your mum is a Glam mum she probably has a wardrobe full of shoes, so why not give her tired feet a deserved rest with Hollywood Feet Secret Heel Cushions. These cushions ease the discomfort of a pair of painful shoes, especially if she plans on wearing them over a long period of time! After all, it's no good wearing a stunning pair of shoes if you can't even walk in them! Glam mums also love a lip colour. For a subtle, lightweight sheen, great for everyday wear, we recommend Savior Faire Lipgloss. Each shade has its own unique fresh scent and flavour. We love 'Lolita' – a peach coloured lipgloss with a delish peaches and cream scent.
Home maker mums
Home maker mums love to primp and preen their homes and most likely have a subscription to House and Garden or Home Beautiful. They are always looking for something new to fix/repair/add to their pride and joy; the family home! Why not give her gifts that she can use to enhance her home whilst also making her feel special too? The Miller Harris Fleur Oriental Set is the perfect choice for a homey mum, containing a luxurious eau de toilette that she can use on herself as well as a beautiful smelling candle to leave her home gorgeously fragrant too. The Bloom Organic Hand and Body Wash is another great option - mum can use it in the shower, or display it on the ensuite vanity for guests. Plus it smells delish!
Natural mums love keeping it clean and simple. If your mum is a natural mum, she is might love a green tea, exude a kind of fresh faced beauty, and she was probably really strict about letting you eat junk food when you were little! If this sounds like your mum, why not gift the gift of some amazing natural skincare. After all, great skin is where it all starts, especially if your mum isn't into lots of cosmetics. We love the A'kin Rose & Geranium Pure Creamy Cleanser & Toner in One for an everyday skin care staple. It removes makeup and impurities naturally with certified organic Australian avocado oil, shea butter & olive squalane and mildly tones with Witch hazel. Being so natural it is especially great for sensitive skin! To get extra brownie points with mum, spoil her further with the Phytomer Hydracontinue Instant Moisture Creme, to round out her skincare wardrobe. The Phytomer moisturiser contains Pheohydrane, a 100% natural marine ingredient, to help maintain the skin's natural hydrating functions - also essential for ageing skin.
New mums deserve the most pampering! A new mum will most likely be a little sleep deprived and obsessed with the new addition to their life, rather than the beauty routine they may have been missing for a while! A great gift for mum and bub is the Yes to Baby Carrots Gentle Foaming Shampoo and Body Wash. All natural, this wash is perfect for bath time bonding, and being 100% natural, hypoallergenic, free from parabens, petroleum and SLS, it won't cause any tears. But of course new mums need something special, all to themselves, as well! She will love the emerginC vitality mask to renew and refresh her complexion. Particularly good for dry, sensitive or tired skin, this rich and creamy mask contains co-enzyme Q10, alpha-lipoic acid, lutein, vitamin H and vitamin E to nourish and hydrate. Plus it is suitable for all skin types!
Grandmothers and Nans
Grandmothers and Nans are generally - in one word - amazing! They also deserve a little love on mother's day. Why not treat them with a soft and soothing hand cream like the Sasy n Savy Rose Lavender Hand n Nail Repair, with vitamin C & E that protects and nourishes hard-working hands. If your Nan loves trinketty bits and bobs she will adore Star & Rose Confetti Soap Roses. These little soaps look and even feel just like rose petals, but can be scattered into a warm bath and used just like a normal soap. They also look beautiful presented as blooms on a bathroom vanity.
And last but certainly not least...
