And if you’re a mom yourself, send a heavy hint to your kids or other half that this year, additional pampering is in order. From Mother’s Day candles, skincare hampers and luxury bathtime treats, read on to discover our pampering Mother’s Day gift guide

1. Create a calm ambience

NEOM Wellbeing Pod Mini Oil Diffuser, $69, LOOKFANTASTIC


Setting the tone of the day is number one, and a calming fragrance should be top of the list. A luxury scented candle is always well received but take it up a notch with the must-have wellness tool of the moment – an oil diffuser.

NEOM’s super cute mini version is battery-operated with a dial to choose the intensity of the oil. Plus, it’s small enough for her to carry around the house.

Mama Mio’s Megamama Shower Milk is fabulous for the shower and bath. Formulated to refresh and revitalize dry skin, this foaming cleanser is packed full of omegas to intensely hydrate so skin is sumptuously supple.
