Gift your mum a precious memory with these experiential Mother’s Day gifts

A pamper sesh for your mum is well overdue

Content Producer / April 28 2024

Mums are genuinely the cornerstones of basically our whole lives. And if we had it our way, we’d have a month devoted to, well, their devotion. We’d maybe even throw in a parade. Maybe it’s overkill but how else are we going to show our mums just how much we love them? We guess we’ll settle for treating them like the Queens they are (and spoiling them with gifts) for their major day: Mother’s Day.

Mums are like snowflakes; no two are the same. Some would be happy for any beauty gift to be wrapped up in a bow, whereas others want skin care gifts or nothing. But for the mums that want a hit of quality time (and could do without  the unnecessary added beauty clutter), it’s time to gift her the experiential beauty gift she’s always wanted.

Whether you want to get her dolled up for her big day with fresh brows or present her with a pampering pressie, your ma is going to adore the unique, salon-quality attention she’s about to get.

These are some of the best experience-based beauty-loving gifts to give your mum this Mother’s Day…
