Thoughtful Gifts for Mother’s Day

They’ve wiped your tears, the food from your face and potentially your street cred (embarrassing nicknames in public, anyone?), but how on earth do you show your mother figure (whether that’s your mum, step-mum, auntie, sister, grandmother, or friend) just how grateful you are? Whether they like a lazy Sunday in their PJs or a bit of weekend glam, we’re bringing you some inspiration to help make this Mother’s Day extra special.

Mother's Day - Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed

The secret to the perfect breakfast in bed is NOT to wake them up with it! Mute that early alarm (or younger sibling or pet that needs feeding), and get their favourite brekkie treats ready along with some fresh flowers, a new book or some relaxing bubble bath. Then – no matter how many times they say they “don’t want a fuss” – let them lounge around in their PJs whilst you wait on them hand and foot.

Mother's Day - Pamper

Pamper party

If they love to lounge, why not create a spa at home? Get the face-packs, nail polishes, and new pair of PJs (we’ve got those too!) ready for a day on the sofa. Throw in a spa-style lunch or order-in if cooking’s not your forte – easy!

Mother's Day - Skincare

Skincare, self-care

Our superheroes deserve the best, and what could be better than some skincare treats? Gift them a new day-to-night routine with our Anew Platinum Lifted & More Resilient Skin Regime – it’s packed full of picks for firmer-feeling, radiant-looking skin! You could even treat them to the powerful Anew Renewal Protinol Power Serum with its 7 skin-renewing benefits.

Mother's Day - Make Up

Make (up) their day

If they love make-up, we’ve got everything they need to smash a smoky eye or perfect a popping pout. Gift them the luscious Avon True Ultra Satin Lipstick in their favourite shade, along with the smudge-proof, budge-proof mark. Gel Paint Pencil Eyeliner. Psst! Are they looking to improve their buffing and blending skills? Book them a make-up masterclass! There are plenty of courses to help them become a pro – you’re welcome.


If they juggle working full-time with running a household, they might appreciate a helping hand and some time for themselves. Why not create a book of chore tokens for them to redeem whenever they like? You’ll be in their good books for a long time to come!

Out & about

Not one for sitting around? Planning a surprise activity doesn’t have to cost the earth – keep your ear to the ground in the run-up to the big day. Is there a film they want to see, a new walk or a restaurant they want to try? Sharing the day doing something you know they’ll love is the perfect gift – trust us!
