Mumma Mia, it’s Mothers’ Day

Mothers’ Day is rapidly approaching so it is time to ‘man-up’ to prevent mummy mayhem! But what do you get for the woman who does everything? Here are some top tips from parental advice site mumsnet:

"Mums are not homogenous creatures. We don't all want padded coat hangers, scented drawer liners, tea cup candles and cheesy compilation CDs...No doormats, oven gloves or tea towels. Ever.”

So now we know what not to buy. Here are some luscious offerings for your loved one from our team of expert tutors at Lifetime Beauty:

For stressed out, time-poor mums maybe the best gift is some time out.  Taking time out could be as simple as the utopia of an uninterrupted bath. There are a multitude of gorgeous gift sets available with body washes, oils, creams and scents. MONU Skincare’s indulgent Daily Ritual Gift Box includes romantic scents of Rose and Patchouli essential oils to gently revitalise and refresh both mind and body. Or find out what her favourite fragrance is and match up.

Even better why not let her create her own personalised perfume? Her signature scent could be created in consultation with a skilled professional, making her own secret recipe! Apparently Hilary Duff never leaves home without setting the mood for the day with her cornucopia of parfums.

For style conscious lippie-loving mums consider channeling the uber stylish Victoria Beckham by buying her versatile, limited edition Nude Spice Matte Lipstick.  VB’s latest collaboration with Estée Lauder has a matte finish, making it marvellous for both day and evening, as well as having good staying power and a smooth, velvety texture.

Or what about the ultimate gift: youth? Whilst we can’t turn back time (nor would we want to) gorgeous skincare products are always a winner. Mum of three, Kourtney Kardashian, favours Cashmere in her skincare!  Check out Manuka Doctor’s Drops of Crystal Cashmere Touch Cream to experience its luxurious ‘age-defying’ formula.

For a more natural approach Dr. Hauschka is a favourite amongst celebrity mums such as Anne Hathaway.  Its Regenerating Skin Care Kit includes Serum, Day Cream, Neck and Décolleté Cream, Eye Cream and Body Cream using Red Clover for its remarkable powers of renewal.

If all else fails (if you dare!) offer up Jessica Alba’s skincare solution:
Johnson’s Baby Oil.  Apparently she mixes it with her moisturiser to
create a subtle shimmer.

But take heed from the experts in all things mummy, mumsnet: "Remember that whatever you do for us on
Mother's Day will be remembered on Father's Day!"
