Beauty boxes are, in my opinion, one of the best gifts to get. They have every new skincare release packed inside and gives a little surprise to the receiver every month. And if there’s anything better than a Mother’s Day celebration, it has got to be Mother’s Day celebrations for at least 3 months.

Choose the latest Beauty Boxes from Lookfantastic and surprise your Mother with a gift for 3 months straight! Or you can opt for a single subscription as a trial, and if she loves it, you know what to do.

Jade Facial Roller

Jade rollers have been around the high society in China the 17th century and recent made its earned a place in cult beauty status. Said to decrease puffiness and minimise fine lines, jade rollers will help to stimulate lymphatic drainage and inject youth into the skin.

My personal favourite is the Mount Lai De-Puffing Jade Facial Roller on Sephora that works best when used daily. Available in two sizes, it is affordable and definitely a great gift to get for Mother’s Day!

As important as it is to look good, smelling good also leaves a lasting impression on others. In anticipation of the days where you will be having a lovely mother-and-daughter/son bonding time, gifting her a fragrance is an indulgence suitable as a Mother’s Day gift.

The J’adore Eau De Parfum, available on Sephora is my top recommended fragrance of all time. I gave this to my mother a few years back and it’s the only fragrance she ever uses since then!

Anti-aging Skincare

As we celebrate Mother’s Day, we should also remember the years of their youth that they have spent on us. Anti-aging skincare is extremely important for both women and men (Father’s Day gift idea right here) and helps the skin to age gracefully.

The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II, available on Sephora is a powerful renewal serum to inject youth into the skin. It adds radiance and intensely hydrates overnight, leaving the skin refreshed within hours of sleep. Suitable for ages 20s to 50+, this will be the perfect gift to celebrate Mother’s Day in 2020.


Nespresso Coffee Machine for Mother's Day gift idea

Nespresso Coffee Machine

My mother once told me, “A coffee a day keeps the doctor away”.

Fortunately, I’ve heeded her advice and can’t tear my life away from a daily cuppa joe now. I’ve been browsing around for a good coffee machine for quite a few days. And I think it’s safe to say that a Nespresso machine will bring a smile to her on Mother’s Day.

All Nespresso machines are known for their minimalistic build and power to concoct a good cup of coffee. I decided to invest in one this Mother’s Day to reward my mother (and myself) with what she deserves on Mother’s Day – a fragrant cup of coffee at her convenience.


Net-A-Porter Cashmere Scarf

There’s something weird yet unique about mothers posing in every single photo with a scarf. I’m not quite sure what the deal is, but somehow, it makes the photo looks that much more… Mum.

Don’t be embarrassed if your mother is one of them, instead, celebrate it! Join in the fun and love with her with a gorgeous cashmere scarf and bask in the wind and sun.

The next time you’re out with her, grab that photo together with her. And I’m sure it will be a lasting memory you’ll hold on dearly to.


Celebrating a meaningful Mother’s Day 2020

Things may be a little different this year, but that shouldn’t take the love and fun out of this Mother’s Day. Stay in and save the trouble as you get all the gifts delivered to your doorstep. And even if it arrives a little late due to shipping restrictions, all that matters is the thought you’ve put into choosing the gift.

We wish all Mothers a very happy Mother’s Day, and we thank you for the love and selflessness you’ve given to nurture each and every one of us.
