£99 (was £120) | Buy now from Monpure
If you’re not familiar with Monpure, the brand is dedicated to healthy scalps. While that may sound strange, studies have shown our scalps age just as fast as the skin on our face and, when you factor in hard water, sun, pollution, pore-clogging silicones in shampoo, stress, and changing hormones, it’s crucially important to take care of your scalp. Or you’ll be met with hair loss and hair thinning. A condition that affects 40% of women and 70% of men in their lifetime.

Monpure is a group of beauty experts, dermatologists, and scientists working to develop hair care designed to leave you with shiny, healthy locks while also looking after your scalp. After all, one typically follows the others.
For Mother’s Day, we recommend The New Essentials gift set. It’s worth £120 but when bought as a bundle, you can get it for £99. We’re aware that £100 on hair care may seem excessive but for women, particularly women of menopausal age, hair thinning will be a very real issue.
The gift set includes:

£65 (was £76) | Buy now from Beauty Sleep
As you can read in our Sleeping beauty: The best overnight hair masks, face creams and foot treatments guide, silk pillowcases (as well as silk scrunchies and silk hair wraps) do absolute wonders for your hair and skin. Not only do they feel lush to sleep on, and stay cool, their smooth surfaces reduce the amount of friction on your hair and face. Especially when compared with cotton or polyester pillowcases.
There are a number of retailers that are getting in on this silk pillowcase trend, but if you want support an up-and-coming British-based business, while treating your loved one for Mother’s Day, we highly recommend Beauty Sleep.
Each of its pillowcases is made from 100% 6A Mulberry silk. Silk is graded on a scale – A, B, or C, and 1-6, with A and 6 being the finest. This means you can’t get higher quality silk than that on sale from Beauty Sleep, and a single case costs just £45. This may seem expensive but 6A silk pillowcases can cost as much as £120!
However, Beauty Sleep also sells bundled gift sets that include a pillowcase, a silk face mask, a silk scrunchie, and a reusable makeup remover for the absolute bargain price of £65. These packs are available in black or white, to suit your loved one’s aesthetic.
The full details of the gift sets are as follows:

If you’re after something a little more expensive, or luxurious try the Réduit Spa. While the ongoing lockdown restrictions have made it impossible to treat your Mum or loved to a day out at a spa, there’s no reason why she can’t enjoy all the benefits of a facial from the comfort of her own home.
Swiss beauty brand Réduit has developed its Réduit Spa device with complementary Skinpods (sold separately for around £30) to deeply cleanse the skin using targeted pods that contain the most potent ingredients delivered exactly where your skin needs them.
You can choose from the Clean Vapor Skinpod that rids the skin of residual oil and grime, the Hydro Boost Skinpod, which gives it a nourishing boost, and other options and each is applied to skin via magnetic misting, ultrasonic diffusion, and sonic pulsations.
This means the Réduit Spa amplifies infusion and delivery of active ingredients into the skin while making sure the formula is evenly distributed.

£299.99 | Buy now from Dyson
The superb – yet incredibly pricey – Dyson Supersonic hair dryer has been given a Mother’s Day makeover and is now available in Fuschia. This isn’t the first time the dryer has been available in Fuschia, but this is a slightly different take on the original. Plus, with the Dyson Supersonic Mother’s Day Edition, you’ll also get a free Round Brush and Comb in the same Fuschia design.
You also have until 12 March to get your order in for Mother’s Day delivery on 14 March.
You can read more about why we love the dryer so much in our Dyson Supersonic review.
