HEY, MAMA – countdown to Mother’s Day 2024

Stuck for some inspiration when it comes to gifting this May 12? Below I’ve lined up some of my own favourite options from some of the world’s most-loved beauty and beauty-adjacent brands, which just may come in handy while you’re panic buying this week!
So without further ado: Here’s to the mothers, the mother figures, the multitaskers, the problem solvers – the women who inspire us every day!

ghd’s Duet Style
Most mums are extraordinarily busy people, and that’s before they’ve even started doing anything for themselves. The team at ghd recognise this, and have created the Duet Style for the time poor who still deserve a good hair day, every day. The super clever tool allows mums to do two jobs at once (as if they don’t do this enough), drying and straightening their hair with no heat damage. And like all of ghd’s core range of stylers, it uses the optimal styling temperature of 185 degrees to protect hair every step of the way.

Shiseido’s limited edition kits
With 12 limited edition kits to choose from this Mother’s Day, global beauty favourites Shiseido have every mum, mother-to-be or special person in your life covered. Ranging in price from $130 - $1050 each, they featured some of the Japanese brand’s most loved skincare products, including the new Vital Perfection range and best-selling range Ultimune. Here for a good time, not a long time, they offer great value for money, and as with all things Shiseido, look absolutely beautiful.

Jo Loves Amber, Lime & Bergamot
The newest creation from Jo Malone CBE’s Jo Loves brand, I haven’t smelled Amber, Lime & Bergamot personally, but it sounds just delicious! Warm and timeless, the fragrance is inspired by the prestigious Concours d' Elegance event, calling for glamour, celebration and living in the moment. The epitome of luxury, Jo Malone says the extravagant party truly was a night to remember: “A few years ago I attended the prestigious Concours d’Elegance event at the exquisite Hurlingham Club. Imagine vintage cars, champagne and lush, green gardens. It was a moment I will never forget. Amber, Lime & Bergamot captures the essence of this celebratory event. It’s sophisticated, warm and elegant.”

Augustinus Bader The Duo
At $490, this beauty will definitely impress even the fussiest of beauty fans – and is the perfect luxe intro to the Augustinus Bader brand. It allows you to experience two hydrating textures - one rich and nourishing, one lightweight and refreshing - for maximum versatility in addressing skin's unique and ever-changing needs. Both deliver visible improvement from first application and firmer, stronger skin over time, and the 30ml size makes them perfect for the mum who travels.

PURE MAMA’s Pregnancy Care Kit
This must-have trio combines PURE MAMA’s bestselling skincare essentials – the Belly Oil, Bump Scrub and Magnesium Body Rub – with a few essential extras. The pregnancy care set is designed to take care of mama, providing her with moments of self-care, connection, and nourishment. These expertly formulated products combine nutrient-rich ingredients and come Kardashian approved: Kourtney Kardashian used the Bump Scrub three times a week during her most recent pregnancy, and the Magnesium Body Rub on her feet to relieve aches and pains.

Paume’s New Parent Bundle
Filled with elevated nursery and nappy bag essentials, Paume’s New Parent Bundle includes a Refillable PAUME Pump, Antibacterial Hand Gel Refill Bag, Antibacterial Hand Gel Travel Bottle and a cute Voyager Pouch to hold it, a Probiotic Hand Balm, and the brand’s Exfoliating Hand Cleanser. Perfect for the newly minted mama, the primarily plant-based formulas are free from parabens and silicones that linger in the water system, and all PAUME packaging is either refillable or made with previously recycled plastics.

Glasshouse Fragrance’s Enchanted Garden collection
“I’m so happy to introduce our enchanting new Mother’s Day collection,” says the inimitable Glasshouse Fragrances CEO and Founder, Nicole Eckels of the brand's sublime Enchanted Garden line-up. “Our hero fragrance, Enchanted Garden, is anchored with base notes of Patchouli, Incense, Suede, and Musk. What captivates me about this fragrance is its hot throw. When you burn this candle, it’s insanely alluring, it radiates this amazing pulsing rose.”
The brand has also added new Perfume Pencils to their always-covetable offering, solid fragrances in a unique pencil format for a new way to enjoy Glasshouse Fragrances Eau de Parfum on the go. The silky balm texture is enriched with Argan Oil and Cocoa Seed Butter, and it effortlessly glides onto your skin, leaving you fragranced with just a stroke of the convenient tip. The set of three that any mum will love includes A Tahaa Affair Devotion, Kyoto in Bloom, and Midnight in Milan, all elegantly encased in a beautifully decorated magnetic box.
