05 May 2020 | By Candice Bresler

At a loss for what to get mom this Mother’s Day? We’ve brought in the experts – our favourite South African beauty bloggers – and asked them to share a few gift ideas to inspire you. 


Cynthia Gwebu

From Cynthia Gwebu.

“For Mother’s Day I often like to treat mom to a delicious brunch at some of our favorite restaurants in the city. However, with the current world crisis in mind, a decadent breakfast-in-bed paired with some of her favorite skin and body products is most ideal. As an ongoing lip care treatment, I’d gift her the iconic Elizabeth Arden Cream Lip Protectant Stick.” 

“To keep skin hydrated, the Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Concentrate is a must-have that’ll have her reaping moisturizing benefits well into winter. Last but not least, all moms love to smell good and so Jean Paul Gaultier Classic EDP is the quintessential scent to gift her with its feminine notes of rose, orange blossom and enticing ginger.”

Victoria Tatham

From Kiss, Blush & Tell.

“Indulgent skincare treats are the perfect gift for mums this Mother’s Day. Choose items that will suit all skin types and provide that extra bit of TLC we could all do with right now. Avene’s Soothing Radiance Mask is one of my go-tos; calming, comforting, and hydrating. It’s great to keep on overnight too. Filorga’s Scrub & Mask gives any skin that enviable glow. The answer to dull, tired skins. Sorbet’s HydroGel Hydrating Sheet mask is also a great pick me up and would cheer any mum up - with her favourite slab of chocolate!”
“For some bath-time indulgence, some of my favourites are The Body Shop Wild Argan Bath Oil and their Almond Milk & Honey Body Scrub. Both smell dreamy and make for the perfect winter bath treat. Light a few candles and pop a great Podcast on for her, your mum will appreciate the time out!”

Candice-Lee Kannemeyer

From In My Bag.

“My mom passed away 11 years ago, so Mother's Day is always a bit sad for me. However, I make up for by lavishing gifts on my incredible Godmother. This year I'm planning on spoiling her with a framed picture of the two of us - taken last year at her 71st birthday - a scented candle and a facial spritz, she's addicted to Eau Thermale from Avene.”
