With 2 weeks until Mother’s Day here in the UK, there is still plenty of time to choose those last minute gifts for that maternal figure in your life. So whether that be your Mum, Aunt, Grandmother, friend or neighbour, there are plenty of natural brands offering a wide range of gifting options to suit every age and budget. I have rounded up some beautiful natural skincare gifts from a few of my favourite indie brands to make Mothering Sunday even more special…
*Contains some previously gifted PR Products
If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know that The Natural Beauty Box is one of my favourite deliveries, introducing me to a wide variety of cruelty free, natural and vegan products for a fraction of the cost. The boxes themselves are not only great value but are perfectly themed for different times of the year, keeping natural beauty supplies topped up with a diverse range of product types in each edit.
As The Natural Beauty Box has so many subscription packages, it makes a great gift for any occasion, with Mother’s Day being the ideal time to give that special lady in your life the pampering treat of a monthly beauty delivery. One-off boxes and subscriptions start from £25.95, with limited edition lucky dip boxes and previous edits starting at just £12.95. This is the budget friendly gift that keeps on giving and will certainly put a smile on someone’s face come Mothering Sunday.
Nothing says pampering experience quite like a long soak in the bath and Raven Botanicals Bathing Oil Trio makes for the perfect gift, with three luxurious blends to suit any mood. The bathing oils themselves are hydrating, nourishing and soothing on the skin, with colloidal oats blending together with non-comedogenic oils to soften the skin without leaving it feeling oily in any way.
The blends are where Raven Botanicals really excel, with carefully selected essential oils that are designed to either uplift, calm or balance the mind, helping to bring an element of tranquillity to the bathing experience. The Bathing Oil Trio comes in three sizes, starting from just £20.00, and with each blend also bring sold separately, Raven Botanicals give you the flexibility to give the gift of self-care whatever your budget.
When it comes to skincare rituals, nothing compares to that weekly masking session to give the skin the TLC it deserves, especially as we begin the seasonal transition from Winter to Spring. The Natural Beauty Pot’s Face Mask Gift Set is stunning, with their popular, multi-functional Cranberry Facial Grains, a bespoke handmade masking dish, soft cleansing cloth and applicator that can both mix and apply your mask with ease.
The set is well packaged in a lovely branded kraft box and is so cohesive in both the contents and colours/branding that makes it feel incredibly special indeed. I love this gift option from The Natural Beauty Pot in particular as it gives the lucky recipient everything they need for a self-care treat, so is perfect for green beauty novices and natural skincare enthusiasts alike.
I often find that under eyes are one of the most neglected parts of any skincare routine yet with the skin around our eyes being so delicate, it is incredibly important to take care of it. Thankfully, Clockface Beauty’s Intense Eye Oil is real hero product when it comes to under eye care, containing a potent blend of 20 active ingredients to target fine lines, protect, nourish and hydrate the skin with a cooling rollerball applicator that will also help to reduce puffiness.
The eye oil has the stylish, signature Clockface Beauty branding and comes housed in a white, branded pillowbox for easy gifting. It is priced at £38.00, so not the most affordable product in this mini gift guide, however after experiencing the incredible results myself I can safely say that this is worth every penny and that lucky lady in your life will certainly be thankful after receiving this beautiful eye oil.
When it comes to Earth conscious gifting on Mother’s Day, this collaboration from Nudge Boutique and Between Me & You delivers great results and is the ideal body care pampering package. Body brushing is not only incredibly beneficial for the look and feel of your skin but also boasts a wide variety of wellbeing benefits from boosting circulation and increasing lymphatic drainage.
But no body brushing routine would be complete without a luxurious body oil to deeply nourish the skin and Nudge Boutique’s Saffron Glow Dry Body Oil is the perfect addition to the Radiant Skin Duo from Between Me & You. The scent of neroli and vanilla treat the scents to a decadent aroma that is uplifting and perfect for this time of year. I’m sure that special lady in your life would be thrilled to receive this on Mother’s Day, and at just £18.00, this dynamic duo is great value for money too.
Give the gift of flowers, perfume and relaxation this Mother’s Day with these beautiful Aromatherapy Perfume Oils from Pretty Special Beauty. These oils each boast their own unique benefits on the senses, from uplifting and balancing to calming and helping to promote sleep, demonstrating how the brand really have created a blend for everyone. What makes these particular perfume oils special is the natural botanicals in each bottle, making them visually attractive and great for gifting.
The rollerball bottle makes application quick and easy, especially for use on-the-go, and the fractionated coconut oil base means the oil absorbs quickly, leaving behind the beautiful blends to give the desired effect. These can either be used as a perfume, aid to meditation or just to help bring a little calm and balance within your daily life. This trio comes in a gift box for £35.00, which is the perfect treat for Mother’s Day, or for a more budget-friendly option, each Perfume Oil can be purchased individually for just £13.50.
The gift of glowing skin is sure to be at the top of any woman’s skincare wishes come Mothering Sunday and Blue Labelle’s latest gift set is the perfect radiance-boosting duo. The Cleanse & Glow Kit contains the award winning 3-in-1 Glow Powder Cleanser and brand new Glow Facial Oil that work in harmony to deliver great results on a daily basis.

The latest member of the Tam Mason family is this beautiful Nourishing Hand Oil, a blend of skin loving ingredients and essential oils that makes the perfect gift for that special lady on Mothering Sunday. We all know how the Winter takes it’s toll on our hands and nails so this is the perfect treat to give hands and nails a little TLC while the essential oil blend relaxes and uplifts mood with each use.
The packaging makes it the perfect option for gifting thanks to its stunning design and plastic-free outer box that makes the unwrapping process just as special as the oil inside. The Nourishing Hand Oil is priced at £22.00 and comes in a generous 30ml bottle with a dropper for easy, hassle free application at any time of the day. If you’re looking to give the gift of nourished hands and nails then this is the one for you.
Bath salts are the perfect gift for bath lovers of all ages and Hebe & Blu’s Bath Salt Bundle Trio is sure to bring a smile to someone’s face on Mother’s Day. The Bath Salts Bundle Trio is a great Earth-conscious gifting option this Mothering Sunday with plastic-free packaging and wooden salt shovel that still looks attractive when giving the gift of self-care to that lucky someone.

When it comes to gifting, multipurpose items are a great way to showcase how versatile skincare can be and give a multitude of options for the lucky recipient. Nourish London’s Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Beauty Balm delivers great results every time, with its concentrated formula that is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
The soft balm is great as a cleanser, overnight mask, moisturiser, CC Cream (when mixed with a drop of foundation), make-up base for a dewy finish, dry skin balm…the list is endless. It is great on the face and body, fighting free radicals while also nourishing, detoxifying and helping reduce the signs of aging. The Antioxidant Multitasking Super Beauty Balm is the complete package, with prices starting from just £13.00 and the full size version, costing £34.00, also comes with a muslin cloth too.
I hope these Mother’s Day gift ideas have filled you with inspiration for treating that special lady in your life. Which gifting option would you love to receive?
