Mums have always done it all. That’s why trying to pick out the perfect Mother’s Day gift can be extra tough every year. What can you gift to someone who deserves so much more than a day, more than just a greeting card, someone who deserves the world? Talk about pressure! One of the best things that you can give mums on their special day is a bit of time for self care – give the mums in your life the power to treat themselves. Yes, we’re talking about self-care products.
For some, self-care revolves around your favourite Netflix show, or bubble baths & face masks. For others, it involves the outdoors of soaking up the fresh air in nature. No matter how you or your loved ones define it, these wellness gifts will make it easier to practice self-care on a regular basis. Here at L&F HAIR & Beauty we’re all about taking some time out for yourself. Whether you want to help your mum splash out on a day of self-pampering or you’re looking for something that’ll make her day – to day a little more luxe. We’ve got you covered with our top-notch picks to help mum take a real break and care for their hair & skin with some luxe haircare/skincare products to give her a luxury experience she deserves to help her rest & recharge.
1.) Don’t give her more problems -choose something you already know she loves.
Mum’s don’t like having to make decisions, so don’t pick a gift that forces her to do so. You can’t go wrong when you buy something you know she’d choose for herself, such as her favourite hair or skin care product or an essential hair tool she has always wanted.
2.) Give gifts that keep on giving?
Give something useful, mums value a useful item more if they receive it as a gift than if they buy it for themselves because novelty wears off but sentimentality doesn’t. Give mum the power to treat themselves. Yes we’re talking about self-care products. Create your own gift pack. Put together her favourite organic haircare products, hair & beauty tools – add a bow and your done!
3.) Give Practical Gifts, not bedazzlement factor.
Sometimes our choices in gifts tend to be selfish. We want the glory of being great gift-givers, so we buy presents with a maximum bedazzlement factor. Flashy flowers, for example. The problem is the flash fades away and the gift-receiver is left to deal with what’s left. To be selfless, a better strategy for how to pick gifts is to buy practical presents that last. For example, most of our Hair & Skin Care Products are made of Recyclable PCR Plastic bottles/jars & not only maintains, repairs & protects hair over an extended period of time, but once empty, can be repurposed into a gorgeous planter jar/bottle! You may get fewer bedazzlement benefits, but mum will get continuous rewards and this outweighs the one-time hit of a flashy gift. Check out our LF website for gorgeous beauty necessities that will prove to be very useful in her day to day life. From various hair type ranges to our skin care collection; these beauty products are perfect for Mum’s who love anything natural & organic or practical with our make-up bags to manicure sets, to electrical hair tools; these handy products are perfect for Mum’s-on -the-go.
4.) Give her time to herself.
Time is more valuable than money. You can always get more money, but you can’t get more time. Finding time to get glamorous when you have kids can be a challenge. Sometimes a real shower to wash her hair isn’t even in the cards. But because we firmly believe beauty makes you feel good on the inside, it’s worth finding ways to get the job done against all odds. From overnight treatments to do-it-all products, we have a wide selection of hair & beauty products to choose from. A great one is to give mum a day off. Do the laundry, dishes, mop the floors, cook dinner, and let her relax with a wine, face mask, hair treatment, good book and her feet up!
5.) Deliver a gift from the heart & make it extra special with how you give it.
Make it personal and include a little bit of yourself. Sometimes it’s the simplest gifts that mean the most. You’re never to old to create a piece of art, handmade card or letter that tells mum how you feel about her. Perhaps share a collection of old photos that bring back happy memories or new photos of your children are always wonderfully heartfelt and treasured.
These should be enough to help you come up with a couple of great gift ideas. There’s always a bit of pressure in choosing the perfect gift for your mum. Knowing what gifts mum will enjoy most will depend on how well you know her taste. The gifts that mean the most are always the one’s that require a little effort.
