What do you give to perhaps one of the most important people 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, makeup and self-care treats that she wouldn't normally buy for herself.
Below, find this year's best beauty gifts that any mom will love.
The Best Beauty Gifts for Mom
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 also prevents skin from developing "sleep creases" and helps hairstyles to last longer.
Omorovicza Heroes is an introduction to one of the best and most luxurious clean skincare brands. This three-piece kit features a non-drying foaming cleanser (which I'm obsessed with!), a clay mask, and the brand's cult-favourite face mist.
Dagne Dover Lola Pouch
Dagne Dover Lola Pouch is a super-durable makeup bag to hold all her essentials. It's made from real pebbled leather, is fully lined with two interior pockets, and has snaps on the outside so you can adjust the shape. I have a bag from this brand, and the designer is a genius—every feature is so practical!
L’Occitane 10 Days of Hand Creams
L'Occitane 10 Days of Hand Creams gives her a full collection of nourishing, shea butter-based hand lotions. (And what mom doesn't love hand cream?!) The set includes the original formula along with newer scents like cherry blossom and bergamot.
Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette
Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette takes the guesswork out of makeup application. This all-in-one palette has three eyeshadows, one bronzer, one highlighter and two blushes, all in super-wearable, goof-proof shades.
Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Solution Set
Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Solution Set targets dark spots and dullness with niacinamide, glycolic acid, and the brand's signature grapevine sap. This set features an essence for gentle exfoliation, a radiance-boosting serum, and a silicone-free moisturizer to lock in hydration.
NuFace Trinity Break the Ice Collection
NuFace Trinity Break the Ice Collection has all she needs to get started with microcurrent—one of the few at-home skin-firming treatments that actually does work! This set includes the silicone-free gel primer plus a limited-edition sparkly version of the device, which emits painless electrical current to give facial muscles a workout.
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.
ILIA The Sunrise Kit
ILIA The Sunrise Kit contains a collection of non-toxic makeup essentials for an easy, anytime beauty look. There's a full-sized eyeliner in brown, and a full-sized multi-stick in watermelon to use on lips and cheeks. Plus you get a mini black mascara, coral-tinted lip oil and a makeup pouch.
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. Every mom deserves a decent hairdryer!
The White Company Luxury Set
The White Company Luxury Set is perfect for a fragrant, full-body pampering session. In this four-piece set, you get 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.
Lancer The Method Intro Kit Sensitive-Dehydrated Skin
If your mom experiences redness, dryness or reactive skin, Lancer The Method Intro Kit Sensitive-Dehydrated Skin will come to the rescue. This kit is comprised of four products: a gentle scrub, cleanser, serum and moisturizer. All are fragrance-free, with calming ingredients that reduce inflammation.
Fresh Sugar Lip Bestsellers Tin
Fresh Sugar Lip Bestsellers Tin gives her six tubes of lip balm to keep her lips soft and hydrated all year long. Two are clear and four are tinted, ranging from sheer pink to bold blackberry.
UGG Fluff Yeah Slide Slippers
UGG Fluff Yeah Slide Slippers are a treat for her feet: plush, comfy slippers made from genuine (dyed) sheepskin. They're designed to be worn barefoot for maximum coziness, and come in a range of colours and patterns.
PMD Personal Microderm Classic
PMD Personal Microderm Classic is a microdermabrasion device that delivers virtually the same results as professional procedures. It comes with different discs for customizing the exfoliation level (very sensitive, sensitive and moderate). Used once a week, it leaves skin baby-smooth and enhances the penetration of topical skincare treatments!
Vitruvi Stone Diffuser
Vitruvi Stone Diffuser uses ultrasonic technology instead of heat to diffuse essential oils throughout a room. So it's the best way to create a gorgeous-smelling home without the chemicals of room fresheners and candles. The matte ceramic is super chic, and comes in three colours (white, blush and black).
Goldfaden MD Radiant Renewal Starter Kit
Goldfaden MD Radiant Renewal Starter Kit is a three-step, doctor-formulated routine made with all-clean ingredients. The super-fine scrub lifts off dead skin cells, while the pH-balanced cleanser gently removes oil and debris. So skin is perfectly prepped for the silicone-free moisturizer—which contains hyaluronic acid as well as brightening botanicals.
neuLASH & neuBROW Professional Mini Kit
neuLASH & neuBROW Professional Mini Kit helps her grow fuller, stronger eyelashes and eyebrows. This set includes a lash-enhancing serum and a brow-enhancing serum, made with peptides, proteins, vitamins and conditioners that promote healthier hair growth.
Kosas The Swipe & Go Set
Kosas The Swipe & Go Set gives her a quick and easy everyday makeup look in three products. There's a sheer lipstick in a universally flattering warm beige, a hydrating lip gloss in clear, and a mini mascara in black.
Red Light Man Red-Infrared Combo Light
Red Light Man Red-Infrared Combo Light is a splurge, yes, but it's also an incredible treatment for both her skin and overall health. It emits a combination of the most optimal red and infrared light wavelengths, which together can help with everything from wrinkles and sagging to sore muscles and arthritis.
Mutha Body Butter
Mutha Body Butter is aptly named for a mom gift, but what's inside is just as good. This indulgent body cream has a rich, whipped texture thanks to its array of natural oils and butters (including shea butter, coconut oil, mango seed butter and cocoa butter).
Skin Gym Face Sculptor
Skin Gym Face Sculptor is the elevated version of a jade roller. The two globes have a deep kneading action that mimics a professional facial massage. The result? A post-facial glow and a more toned look overall.
Violet Grey Wet Hair, Don’t Care Set
Violet Grey Wet Hair, Don't Care Set promises only great hair days, thanks to a collection of sought-after haircare staples. The high-tech hair turban cuts post-shower drying time in half, while the handcrafted resin brush is gentle on both wet and dry hair. Six pure silk scrunchies keep ponytails in place without snagging or creasing.
Diptyque Baies Candle
Diptyque Baies Candle is always the answer when you're stumped over what to give. The fruity rose and blackberry scent is a cult classic, and the chic vessel can later be re-used to hold her miniature beauty essentials.
