Beauty and Fragrance Gifts for Mother’s Day

Beauty and Fragrance Gifts for Mother’s Day


Mother’s Day will be here before you know it and with it being on the 31st of March, the last day of the month it is best to be prepared while we still have the budget. We all want our mums to feel appreciated and loved every day of the year but on Mother’s Day we can make an extra special effort.

If you are struggling with idea’s here at Fragrance Direct, we have the answers so there is no excuse to grab some flowers and chocolates from the corner shop last minute. If you think this year your mum would like to try a new fragrance, then these three launches are ones to have a look at. The first is Issey Miyake Eau’ D’Issey Pure Petale De Nectar, which is a fresh light Eau de Toilette that has just launched and is perfect for spring summer. This is a great one for all mums out there with a feminine taste due to its sleek, delicate bottle design and sweet scents of pear, honey and rose.

The second recommendation for a fragrance would be the new Emporio Armani In Love with You. This new Eau de Parfum is a fruity, sweet, addictive scent with notes of black cherry, jasmine and vanilla and with its classic, simplistic bottle, this would make a great gift. Not only that the name of the fragrance would flatter any mum out there.

The final suggestion for a fragrance would be the Dolce and Gabbana The Only One 2, the second chapter of the story. This new launch is for the sophisticated, strong mums out there with its signature coffee and violet notes. With its red, empowering bottle it symbolises love and femininity.

If you are thinking of other options this Mother’s Day, there are some great gift sets that any mum would love to receive. The first is the Gatineau Pamper Collection 4 Piece Gift Set, this set includes the Aquamemory High Hydration Cream Mask, Defi Lift 3D Revoluming Lip Care, Vitmina Suractivee Hand Cream and the Professional Mask Brush all in a beautiful wash bag. For anyone who uses Gatineau and is new to the brand, this is an incredible brand and would be a real treat to whoever receives this set, another bonus is you would make a huge saving on these products.

The next idea we pulled out as a great present was the Crabtree and Evelyn Garden Hand Therapy Duo. This brand always does lovely hand cream sets in beautiful packaging, but this duo is a favourite. Both creams smell gorgeous especially the Gardeners moisturising therapy and are great for healing any cracks or dryness caused by the cold weather.

This set is for if your mum deserves a little pamper, this Soothing bath and body set by Urban Veda is a trusted brand that will harmonise delicate skin. It includes a body wash and full-size soothing body lotion full of calming botanical extracts that will de-stress and pamper this Mother’s Day.

The final recommendation from us here at Fragrance Direct would be for those mums who are into their beauty brands and products. The Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance Mascara Set includes a full-size mascara, lip and eye make up remover and a precision glide eye pencil eye liner in black velvet. This is a highly recommended brand and these three products are essential in any lady’s make up bag making it a great gift this Mother’s Day.

We hope that this has been helpful and that you find the perfect gift for your mum this Mother’s Day! Make sure you take a look at the Mother’s Day category for more options.

This formula with acacia honey, wheat protein and vitamin E, helps to smooth dry hair acting as a comfort food leaving your hair soft and silky. Perfect for restoring some health after all the heat styling over the festive period.

For men the American Crew hair products are one of the best, they have a shampoo and conditioner which would balance hair leaving it soft while washing away any excess build-up of any styling products from the day.

The Max Factor Miracle Foundation is a steal in this year’s sale transforming your skin with the perfect shade match giving you a healthy-looking finish, imperfection coverage and leaving you with a dewy complexion. A great opportunity to try something new.

If you are looking at gift sets for gents, the Prada Luna Black Rossa Black Gift Set including a spray and shower gel is the latest in the in the line of sophisticated fragrances. This Eau De Parfum is the combination of raw and refined, with top notes of bergamot and base notes of amber, musk, coumarin.

The Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal Gift Set is fabulous for a lady. It is a feminine, intimate scent with heart notes of honey and gardenia and with its unique bottle and packaging it makes this set extremely desirable.

If you are thinking of spring and inspiration for your 2019 spring summer look there are some great lipsticks in the sale such as the Revlon Super Lustrous Colour Change Lipstick or the Lustrous Matter version both formulated with microfine pigments for long lasting high colour impact.

One last favourite would be the Marc Jacobs Daisy limited edition Eau De Toilette 100ml this classic pure fragrance is signature Marc Jacobs and charmingly simple. The top notes are infused with succulent wild berries and soft violets leaving you with a fresh and radiant scent on the skin. This is one not to be missed.
