10 Beauty Editor-Approved Gifts Your Mom Will Love

April 25, 2024

While moms are typically easier to shop for than dads, there’s still an art to nailing the perfect Mother’s Day present—and we believe that art lies in beauty products. Every mom we know is always busy taking care of everyone else, so an indulgent beauty gift is exactly what’s needed to encourage her to take a little “me time” now and again.

The Body Care Boost

If Mom appreciates fresh cut flowers, she’ll adore this travel-size trio from Oribe. Starring a vibrant mix of Bulgarian rose, peony, warm amber and textured woods, the scented body wash, body crème and Eau de Parfum spray each deliver aromatic extravagance but they also work in harmony to create a long-lasting fragrance experience she can take on the go.

The Makeup Must-Have

Ideally suited for the mom who never leaves the house without mascara on, this Revlon kit is designed to dramatically lift and extend lashes. It includes an eyelash curler (a make-up bag must-have) along with a tube of the new ColorStay Xtensionnaire Lengthening Mascara, an innovative lengthening formula infused with Pro-Vitamin B5 serum that nourishes and conditions. Bonus: she can use the shimmering cranberry eye pencil to further transform her gaze.

The Chic Scented Set

This ultra-luxe trio from French fragrance and candle house Diptyque is a sure bet this Mother’s Day. Inspired by the iconic Café Verlet—which is the oldest Parisian coffee house still operating—this set has notes of coffee, whipped cream and a spiced cookie, and is the next best thing after visiting the shop IRL.

The Social Media Sensations

Loaded with buzzy beauty finds, she’ll delight in each and every one of the 10 (!) products in this cool patent pouch from Shoppers Beauty. Anchored by a full size of a new breakout star (R.E.M. Beauty Essential Drip Lip Oil), the curated kit includes nine makeup, hair care and fragrance minis, including the iconic Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey that flatters every skin tone.

The Skin Saver

Give your mom the gift that’s at the top of everyone’s wish list: a gorgeous, glowing complexion. Rooted in Japanese beauty rituals, this skin plumping set from Tatcha includes their best-selling Camellia Cleansing Oil, Silk Serum and Silk Cream—a trio that’s specifically formulated for mature skin to deliver smoother, firmer results.

The Ultimate Hair Upgrade

OK, OK, we know this is one pricey gift! But this game-changing hair dryer from Dyson makes a thoughtful group present, especially if your mom is shelling out for regular blow outs. And this year, the brand released the award-winning tool in this seriously cute pink and rose gold combo just for the occasion.

The Skin Boosting Duo

Shopping for a young mom with a less is more vibe? Consider the two-step simplicity of this set from Montreal-based skincare line Jouviance. Made to address the first signs of aging, it starts with the HA serum, which calls on a hyaluronic acid-peptide blend to hydrate and plump, and wraps up with a rich cream powered by cell renewing ingredients that enhances skin texture and boosts radiance.

The Pampering Pass

It’s a known fact that mother’s don’t treat themselves enough (even after regular pestering). Canadian beauty bar The Ten Spot recently unveiled their new professional skincare treatments across their 45+ North American locations and a gift card for a visit makes for the perfect ‘treat yourself’ nudge. Included in the offerings are dermaplaning, peels and hydrating facials so mom can choose her preferred pampering.

The Affordable Win

A staple item in every mom’s bag, lip balm is always a crowd pleaser. Complete with four mouth-watering flavours—Berry, Sweet Candy, Mango and Peach Iced Tea—these viral Laneige balms deliver moisture, protection and antioxidants to dry lips. Each formula is packed with coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin C to nourish and hydrate a parched pucker.

Suitable for those who experience redness or have sensitive skin, this collection from derm- and esthetician-loved brand AlumierMD includes full-sizes of a hydrating cleanser, soothing serum, restorative face cream and Clear Shield SPF 42 – which happens to be one of our all-time fave sunscreens!
