When it comes to Mother's Day beauty gifts, there’s nothing like a new scent. If your mum loves finding obscure perfumes, she’ll love Australian fragrance house Goldfield & Banks. The brand’s Deluxe Discovery Set includes 7 deluxe samples from the range: Pacific Rock Moss, Southern Bloom, Desert Rosewood, White Sandalwood, Wood Infusion, Blue Cypress, and Velvet Splendour. With such a selection, she’s sure to unearth her new fave within! The collection draws inspiration from the breathtaking natural landscapes of Australia and the distinctive ingredients found within these habitats. Featuring in the Goldfield & Banks range are notes such as Boronia from Tasmania’s Bruny Island, sunburnt Wildflowers, Wattle blooms and Eucalyptus.

Once relegated to the back shelves of $2 stores, oil burners have been experiencing a solid comeback in recent years. This one by Maison Balzac makes a super-cute last minute gift. In striking Pink glass, the Maison Balzac Brule Parfum Oil Burner will add a touch of beauty to Mum’s bedside stand. Pair it with an essential oil from our offerings and you’ll have a beautiful gift ready to go. To use, Mum just needs to add some water and five drops or so of an essential oil to the hollowed top of the burner, then light a tea light in the base. All that’s left for her to do is relax and soak up the soothing scents.

Give your mum the ultimate glow-up with new skin care products for Mother's Day. Cosmeceutical skincare brand Medik8 fills its ABC Kit with highly rated products from its range: Medik8 Gentle Cleanse, Hydr8 B5, Medik8 C Tetra, and Medik8 Retinol 3TR. With ingredients such as professional-strength Vitamin C and Vitamin A, this powerful skincare set addresses signs of ageing. The quad fights fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness while purifying and hydrating. The ABC Kit is suitable for all skin types, but those looking to combat skin ageing will find it most beneficial.

Hunting last minute gifts for the mum who already seems to have it all? Maison Crivelli Absinthe Boreale is an aromatic perfume with a unique tale behind its creation. Inspired by consuming a cool shot of absinthe under the Northern Lights, this inimitable scent opens with icy notes of Juniper Berry, Eucalyptus, Mint, and Lemon. These striking notes are balanced by milky Lavender and Musk. This distinctive fragrance doesn’t just smell divine. Its elegant, minimalist packaging also looks gorgeous on a dressing table like Mum’s. It’s a versatile spritz that’s suitable for both daytime and the evening wear.
