If picking the perfect Mother’s Day present has left you in a bit of a pickle, don’t panic! Grand gestures and plush packages might seem like the only way to show your mum you love her, but trust us… smaller, more thoughtful gifts can really put a smile on her face. Us girls at DARE have already run through the top beauty tips we got from our mums – but we thought we’d let you know the little presents we’re buying as well.

I’ve had a bottle of SJP Stash sat on my perfume tray since it came out and let me tell you… my mum has been helping herself! But bless her, she’s clearly trying to do it on the down low so I don’t notice. Rather than my mum feeling like she has to spritz in secret I thought I’d just get her one of her own! Picking up a product or two that you’ve noticed your mum has taken a liking to is a great way to show you care.
While staying with my mum recently, I used my B HD Flawless Face Primer when we were getting ready and she was so fascinated by it! She didn’t have a clue what primer was, but when she found out it minimised the appearance of pores and lines she was sold! Although she’s yet to get her own so I thought I’d jump in there. If you’re stuck, try introducing your mum to some new beauty products.

Like most people, my mum goes crazy for anything with coconut on the ingredients list and recently I bought the Garnier Ultimate Blends Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner. I’d say, between the two of us using it, it was gone in about two weeks! If you know your mum likes a certain scent or swears by a particular ingredient, like mine does with macadamia nut oil, use that as your inspo.

My mum could spend ages in the bath with bubbles, a book and a nice face mask. I know how much she loves a cheeky pamper sesh and she’s just run out of the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Glow Face Mask – which she swears has saved her skin! Knowing your mum’s little pick-me-ups is a great way to help you choose a gift, and it shows you pay attention.

My mum taught me to use high SPF on my face all year round and it’s a beauty secret that’s saved my skin! She still swears by it, but I know that some sun creams irritate her skin. That’s why I’m treating her to the Ultrasun Face Sun Cream SPF 50. It’s a super high factor – check, ideal for sensitive skin – check, and provides buckets of hydration – check! Thinking about the little tips your mum has given you over the years can be a great way to come up with sentimental gift ideas.
