Every year it comes around; every year, it catches you off guard. Mother’s Day will soon be here, so take the stress out of this year’s celebration by picking out the perfect gift today. Whether she shares your love of fragrance or is a little trickier to buy for, we have every base covered, with something for all budgets.

Treat Her Like Royalty

Just because you’re on a tight budget needn’t mean you have to scrimp this Mother’s Day. Chocolates come and go, flowers fade away, but fragrance is the gift that keeps on giving. 

Fit for royalty, Vera Wang Princess Eau de Toilette makes a perfect gift for mums of all ages. A bright, happy perfume, Princess opens with fresh notes of apple, mandarin and apricot then gives way to a deeper sweetness courtesy of vanilla, dark chocolate and pink frosting – all of her favourite desserts wrapped into one. 

As an Eau de Toilette, Princess is a light, easy-to-wear scent that she’s sure to reach for again and again. And, at less than £15 for 50ml, it’s a great gift that won’t break the bank.

Three Times The Fun

If your mum is one of those “Oh, I don’t need anything” types, it can make shopping for Mother’s Day so much more difficult. She might say she doesn’t want a gift, but through experience, you know better. So, what do you get someone who won’t give you any clues? The answer is the Michael Kors House Of MK Gift Set.

A well-known brand that speaks of quality, Michael Kors fragrances are universally popular, and this set includes three different scents for her to mix and match. Wonderlust, Sparkling Blush and Gorgeous are miniatures of their originals, complete with iconic glass bottles and packaged in a giftable gold box – all for less than £20.

At that price, you may want to pick one up for yourself while you’re at it.

Something For The Home

Is your mum set in her ways when it comes to perfume? Why not get her something to brighten up her home instead? Spring is in the air, so replace the festive candle she’s loved all winter with something a little more appropriate for the season. 

The WoodWick Lemongrass and Lily Ellipse Candle is the epitome of luxury in its iconic elliptical jar, without the matching price tag. The scented candle combines refreshing lemon and grapefruit accords with green floral notes to create a vibrant, uplifting fragrance. With the unique Hearthwick flame that sounds like a roaring fire, as well as 80 hours of burn time, she’ll enjoy the sensory experience for weeks to come. 

Fragrance For Every Room  

Are 80 hours not quite enough for your candle-loving mum? Or perhaps she likes to experiment with new fragrances, choosing a scent to suit her mood? The Yankee Candle Sakura Blossom WOW Giftset has you covered. 

This gift set includes enough to keep her fire burning well into summer, containing one medium jar candle, two small jar candles, two votive candles, and a dozen tealight candles. Among the gorgeous selection of seasonal fragrances are Sunny Daydream, Sweet Plum Sake, and of course, the enchanting scent of Sakura Blossom.

A Bouquet, But Better

Whether she’s an avid gardener or rarely stops to smell the roses, every mum deserves to have her senses delighted by the fragrance of a blooming bouquet. But don’t rush out to the florist; choose something she can enjoy time and time again, like the exquisite scent of Lancome La Vie Est Belle En Rose Eau.

Top notes of red fruit bring sweetness to this updated take on La Vie Est Belle, with peonies and rose essence rounding out the fragrance. Like a soft breeze through the garden on a summer day, this scent is happiness bottled – a gift she’s sure to love.  

Add To Her Collection

The most challenging aspect of buying a fragrance for a woman who adores perfume is that she’s probably already beat you to it. If your mum is the type of woman who loves treating herself to new fragrances, here’s a word of wisdom – get out ahead of her. With wonderful new perfumes being released regularly, if you get in quick, you can buy her the perfect gift before she’s even aware it exists.

The latest edition in the Daisy collection, and the newest release by Marc Jacobs, Daisy Eau So Fresh Skies, is a citrusy, aromatic take on the original with notes of chamomile, violet and tea tree oil. But don’t dilly-dally; this one will find its way into her basket in no time.
