Give mum the gift of self-care this Mother's Day

By treating mum to some hard-earned R&R, she can take some time out for herself for once. Whether you’re shopping for your own mum or buying on behalf of your kids, here are 5 thoughtful self-care gift ideas for Mother’s Day. 

Being a mum is so much more than just one role. Often, it means being a cook, hairstylist, driver, confidante and so much more — all in one! But, mums do it all with a smile on their faces, rarely stopping to complain or ask for anything in return!

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to show mum just how much she means to you. And, there’s no better way to do that than by giving the gift of self-care! By treating mum to some hard-earned R&R, she can take some time out for herself for once.

Whether you’re shopping for your own mum or buying on behalf of your kids, here are 5 thoughtful self-care gift ideas for Mother’s Day. 

1. A massage
There are few things more relaxing than a massage. Not only is it 45 minutes to an hour of pure bliss, but it’s impossible to use your phone throughout! That means mum gets some uninterrupted ‘me’ time — no phone calls, texts or emails! Treat mum to a massage voucher and to take it a step further, book in for one on her behalf and make sure everything is taken care of at home. That way, mum has no excuse not to carve out the time for herself. She’ll love you for it!

2. Aromatherapy essentials
Let’s face it — life can be chaotic sometimes. While mum may not always have time to metaphorically slow down and smell the roses, that doesn’t mean she can’t literally! Aromatherapy — using natural scents to promote relaxation — is the perfect way to add a touch of bliss into mum’s busy life. Whether it’s a beautiful, scented candle or a diffuser kit with an array of essential oils, it will mean mum can always achieve those zen vibes at home.

3. A glow-up
Of course, mum is always glowing from the inside out. But, between all the rushing about, she might not always feel like it — especially if she’s a new mum. A voucher for a beauty service is the perfect way to get her feeling (and looking) more like herself again. Whether it’s a relaxing facial, blowdry, manicure or pedicure, she’s sure to walk out feeling like a million bucks! 

4. Magazines and tea
Magazines are such a great source of relaxation and inspiration, but many busy mums find it hard to justify buying them because they rarely have time to read. That’s what makes this such a great gift! By pairing one of her favourite magazines with a delicious, herbal tea, mum will always have a go-to self-care ritual she can incorporate into her everyday life. Bonus points if you also get her a gorgeous China teacup set to serve her tea in!

5. Bath essentials
Is there any better way to tell mum you think she’s the bomb dot com than with a bath bomb? From a luxurious bath soak mix to an indulgent body scrub or moisturiser, bath essentials are truly the gift that keeps giving. When mum needs a break from everything, she can simply close the door and treat herself to a relaxing bath ritual!
