Mothers are superheroes. They are impervious to the common cold and never get flu. They fought off the monsters under our beds and sang us to sleep. They put up with our teenage angst and rebellion and supported us through our first career choices. Mothering Sunday is just around the corner! Show mum your appreciation for all she has done, with these indulgently pampering and relaxing gift ideas!
Let mum feel like a queen and indulge in her very own Penhaligon’s collection. As the official perfumer of Queen Victoria, William Henry Penhaligon created beautifully exotic and sensual perfumes in the 1800s and their original recipes are still used today. These miniatures feature some of the most notable scents from the Penhaligon collection, such as Orange Blossom, Opus 1870, Artemisia and the Blenheim Bouquet.
If you are on a budget but still want to pamper mum this Sunday, why not get her these beautifully crafted Tropical Rainforest Bath Flowers. Sculpted from soap infused with the essential oils of Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Orange, Pink Grapefruit and Amber, she’ll only need to dissolve about 8-9 petals in her bath water for an enticing aromatic experience that will send her on a relaxing trip that will feel out of this world.
Let mum relieve tired eyes and tensions with the Relaxology Massage Mask. This battery-operated, clever and portable massage mask is based on Chinese Acupuncture techniques and Magnetics principles, targeting muscles around the eyes, temples, nose and cheekbones, effectively relieving tension and pain associated with eyestrain, headaches, and sinus and improving circulation in these areas.
Everyone knows that Chocolate really is a girl’s best friend, and what better way to make mum’s day than with a delicious, handmade Belgian chocolate teapot. Fill it with hot water to make an indulgent and rick hot chocolate drink, or as a divine chocolate fondue!
There is nothing quite as relaxing as a long, hot bath at the end of the day. It is a perfect time to unwind and soak up a peaceful few moments. Give mum the best gift this Mother’s Day with Olverum Bath Oil. With a unique, restorative blend of Lavender, Pine, Rosemary, Verbena and Eucalyptus essential oils, Olverum is both aromatically enticing, relaxes muscles and leaves the skin feeling baby soft, perfect for dry skin.
Colouring-in is not just for children anymore. Adult colouring activities are gaining popularity as the most relaxing way to destress and unwind in-between life’s busy moments. Let mum put her feet up and enjoy the benefits of colouring-in for adults with this Glorious Gardens book that features over 100 beautifully hypnotic floral patterns and designs for her to unleash her creativity on.
