What do you give to perhaps one of the most important names on your shopping list—your mom?
If she's anything like mine, she'll claim that she "doesn't really need anything."
That's why the holidays are the perfect excuse to pamper her with skincare and makeup treats that she wouldn't normally buy for herself.
Below, find this year's best beauty gifts that any mom will love.
Beauty Gifts for Mom
Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Advent Calendar
Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Advent Calendar is a set of 12 makeup and skincare products, housed in an advent-style box that's so fun to open. Four of the products are full-sized: matte lipstick, glossy lipstick, eyeshadow pencil and cream eyeshadow. You also get travel-sized primer, mascara, eyeliner, makeup remover, face mask, moisturizer, balm and body shimmer.
Omorovicza Sephora Exclusive Holiday Intro Set
Omorovicza Sephora Exclusive Holiday Intro Set is an introduction to one of the best and most luxurious clean skincare brands. The five travel-sized products include a cleansing balm, a foaming cleanser, mud mask, moisturizer and the cult-favourite face mist. See my review of this brand here.
Tory Burch Perry Quilted Nylon Small Cosmetic Case
Tory Burch Perry Quilted Nylon Small Cosmetic Case (available in gold and hot pink) is a super-durable nylon makeup bag to hold all her essentials. I have one from a few seasons ago and it's basically indestructible!
L’Occitane Hand Cream Trio
L'Occitane Hand Cream Trio gives her three tubes of nourishing, shea butter-based hand cream in limited-edition packaging. (What mom doesn't love hand lotion?!)
Slip Beauty Sleep Collection
Slip Beauty Sleep Collection includes a sleep mask and a pillowcase, both made from pure, high-quality silk. Not only are they luxurious to use, but the reduced friction prevents skin from developing "sleep creases" and helps hairstyles to last longer.
Caudalie Premier Cru Absolute Anti-Aging Solution
Caudalie Premier Cru Absolute Anti-Aging Solution targets signs of aging with hyaluronic acid, resveratrol and grapevine sap. The full-sized eye cream is currently part of my skincare routine, and I love it! There's also a matching serum and moisturizer.
NuFace Trinity Mini Shimmer All Night Set
NuFace Trinity Mini Shimmer All Night Set has all she needs to get started with microcurrent—one of the only skin-firming treatments that actually does work! You get the device plus the gel primer, a line-smoothing serum and a mirrored compact.
Natori Luxe Shangri-La Knit Robe
Natori Luxe Shangri-La Knit Robe will keep her stylish and cozy while performing her beauty rituals. It's made from a soft stretch knit, is machine-washable, and comes in an array of colours with contrasting lace trim.
Fresh Radiance Ritual Set
Fresh Radiance Ritual Set contains a collection of firming and hydrating skincare products that are sure to please every mom. There's a gentle cleanser, a whipped moisturizer, a lip balm and two indulgent face masks—one with black tea, and the other with real rose petals.
Harry Josh Pro Tools Ultra Light Pro Dryer
Harry Josh Pro Tools Ultra Light Pro Dryer is a pro-quality ionic hairdryer that significantly cuts down on drying time, thanks to its fast motor speed. It's also quiet, super lightweight and even helps to reduce frizz. Mom deserves a decent hairdryer!
The White Company Luxury Set
The White Company Luxury Set is perfect for a fragrant, full-body pampering session. The four-piece set includes a bath and shower gel, body soap and body lotion, plus a matching candle for ambience.
Foreo Luna 3 for Sensitive Skin
Foreo Luna 3 for Sensitive Skin is a cleansing brush and anti-aging treatment in one. The gentle silicone bristles remove dirt and makeup without irritation, while the reverse side pulsates to increase blood flow and elasticity. There's also an app to guide her through various facial massage routines.
Filorga Plumping Must-Have
Filorga Plumping Must-Have is for the mom who is serious about skincare. This set features two full-sized products: an intensive hyaluronic acid serum, and a peptide-based anti-wrinkle cream. This line is one of my mom's all-time favourites (and she's tried everything!).
Lanolips 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm Duo
Lanolips 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm Duo gives her two tubes of lip balm—and not just any lip balm. This stuff is the Holy Grail! Made from 100 percent natural lanolin, it heals chapping like nothing else (and also works on cuticles, nasal passages and dry skin patches).
UGG Genuine Shearling Slipper
UGG Genuine Shearling Slipper is a treat for her feet: plush, comfy slippers made from genuine sheepskin. They're designed to be worn barefoot for maximum coziness, and there are eight colours to choose from.
PMD Personal Microderm Classic Device
PMD Personal Microderm Classic Device is an at-home microdermabrasion system that delivers the same skin-smoothing and brightening results as professional treatments. It comes with six different discs for customizing the exfoliation level.
Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Anti-Aging Set
Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Anti-Aging Set is the Rolls Royce of luxury skincare. What mom wouldn't want to receive this full-sized eye and lip cream in the most stunning gold and navy packaging?! Also included is an essence, a serum and a face cream.
Vitruvi Stone Diffuser
Vitruvi Stone Diffuser, made from matte ceramic, uses ultrasonic technology (not heat) to diffuse essential oils. So it creates a gorgeous-smelling home, without the chemicals of room fresheners and candles.
Claus Porto Deco Mini Soap Collection
Claus Porto Deco Mini Soap Collection features the most beautiful and colourful soaps I've ever seen. You get nine miniature soap bars, each one hand-wrapped in Art Deco-inspired packaging.
neuLASH Beauty on the Go Mini Kit
neuLASH Beauty on the Go Mini Kit helps her grow fuller, stronger eyelashes and eyebrows. This set includes both a lash-enhancing serum and a brow-enhancing serum, along with a bonus exfoliating scrub for brighter skin. I've been using the lash treatment this year and it really does work!
