Mother’s Day: The Ultimate Gift Set Guide
Do you feel as though it’s about time you gave your mum a well-deserved surprise this Spring? We do too.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner which means it’s time to show your mum just how much you appreciate her. This year it falls on Sunday 31st March and many of us will be looking for the perfect present for the leading lady in our life. You’re probably scouring the internet right now, aren’t you? Mother’s Day is the chance to remind the most important woman in your life how much she means to you, and while showering her with some much-deserved love and affection is a sure way to her heart, a surer way is getting her a suitably fabulous gift.
In true Regis style, we’ve been searching for the best deals on gift sets that will not only save you some money but also help you win the title of ‘favourite child’… So, if you’re stuck for prezzie ideas, you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve done the hard work for you and listed our top picks for presents for every mum out there – and the best part is, they start from as little as £9.
If you’re a mum, now is probably the perfect time to start dropping hints about these to your children and other half…
For the nurturing mums…
Is your mum the first person you turn to when you need someone to talk to? Does your mum always know the right things to say? Well, it’s likely that your mum is in fact the nurturing kind – no surprises there then. We’re sure she’s probably spent years lending an ear to hear all about your breakups and makeups, so we reckon something that says ‘thank you’ of the luxurious kind fits the bill perfectly. What better gift then to spoil her with Kerastase’s Nutritive gift set? After years spent nourishing your soul, it’s time to nourish her hair, no? Treat mum (and her hair) to this gorgeous gift set that’s infused with glucose proteins and irisone complex. This trio of a glam squad helps to gently nourish and replenish hair fibres from root to tip to reveal luxuriously soft hair after just one wash. If you think your mum could do with a little replenishment on her locks, this is the one. It’s ideal for normal to dry hair too which means it’ll work wonders on most hair types.
However, if you’re on a budget after realising how expensive flowers are these days (and opting out of giving your mum a decent bunch for Mother’s Day is simply not an option), then we feel you. We’ve picked out a cheaper alternative if you still want to say ‘I love you Mum’ without the price tag. The Kerastase Chronologiste Holiday Travel Sized Kit might be the cheaper option, but it’s in no way a mediocre choice. If you know your mum would love to bring her hair back to life, then this kit is the one for her. Specially formulated with vitamin A and E this range will revitalise, moisturise and leave lustrous shine on your hair from day one. Another great thing to note is that if your mum has a holiday on the horizon this is also a good option as it’s a great little kit for when she’s on-the-go, and she’ll love the gesture for sure.
For the busy mums…
Murad Dew A Little
For the working mums who are always busy, but never too busy to spend time with you, this one’s for them. Your mum is so busy helping everyone else that she often forgets to take care of herself, including her skin. Gift you mum the Murad Dew a Little Gift, which is a luxurious yet lightweight Hydro-Dynamic moisturiser. One of Murad’s bestselling products, the moisturiser provides 24-hour hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid technology enhances the skin’s ability to attract and retain water for intense, long-lasting hydration. Priced at just £9, it’s the perfect, inexpensive little treat for Mother’s Day.
Murad Prep In A Flash Gift Set
If you’ve got a little change left over, we’d also recommend the Murad Prep in a Flash gift set. This ultimate make-up prep set is suitable for any skin tone and is known to hydrate, brighten, plump fine lines and blur imperfections. A good, smooth canvas to begin with helps makeup last longer so if you’ve heard your mum complain that her make up never lasts a whole evening, this is the perfect little gift. Her skin will appear smoother and healthier-looking ready to take her from her busy day through to night, and by not having to reapply her makeup she’ll be saving some precious time out of her busy schedule – perfect.

For the bubbly mums…
Is your mum the type to brighten up any room? Is she the first to break a silence? Does she make friends with anyone and everyone she passes? Ok, well you may think your mum is larger than life but to us, she seems positive and cheerful. If she wasn’t busy brightening up someone’s day, you’d suspect something is wrong, so for this type of mum we’re counting on the fact that she’ll need voluminous hair to match her bubbly and vivacious character.
If your mum’s hair needs a little extra boost to match her chirpy personality, this is the gift set for her. Whilst keeping hair nourished and moisturised the Moroccanoil Volume Keepsake Tin Gift Set will help her to reveal frizz free, easy to manage, full of body, styles for every occasion. All she needs to do is gently cleanse and condition her hair in the shower followed by a little run through of the Morrocanoil Treatment once styled to give a lightweight, smooth finish to keep fly-aways at bay.
She’s going to be amazed at how bouncy, soft and smooth her hair feels after just one use. It might even leave her speechless!
For the ‘always cooking’ mums…
We’re pretty sure that the majority of mums out there are always waiting to fill their brood’s bellies with home-cooked goodness. Is your mum the type to cook a feast when she knows full well it’s just you and your other half coming over? Or when it’s a small family gathering and your mum promised she’d only put on ‘a few small snacks’ but hands you a carving knife instead for the turkey that’s surrounded by 7 other Pinterest-perfect dishes? If your mum can’t help but cook to feed a hundred, we bet she’s so busy preparing dishes and playing host to friends and family, that she hasn’t given herself the time to tend to her prized nails.
Sent with big hugs and kisses, the OPI XOXO Duo is a luxurious way to treat your mum this Mother’s Day. Including a Cosmetic Bag this duo are the perfect shades that will suit every skin tone and age. Featuring a bright red shade and a darker burgundy, it’s time your mum cooks up a treat for her nails.
If your mum prefers lighter or more seasonal colours, you’ll want to check out the OPI Lisbon collection. Besides, why choose one shade when you can have four with this mini pack? In this food renaissance it’s necessary to co-ordinate your nail polish to your dish, so we’re sure your mum’ll have some fun when she preps her nails as well as her dish the next time you’re over for dinner.
For the more whimsical of mum-chefs, don’t pass up on the limited-edition set inspired by Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Keep mum’s nails looking on trend and classy with these iconic OPI shades.
For the fabulous mums…
Now here’s the piece de resistance. This one’s for all the strong mums, the compassionate mums, the fearless mums and the fabulous mums. If your mum sounds like she’s any of these, you’ll want a gift that fits the bill this Mother’s Day, which is a tall order indeed. But, we reckon we’ve found the perfect set of gifts for you to choose from. So, if you reckon your mum deserves the ultimate gift that’s been at the top of every hair enthusiast’s wishlist, then look no further. The ghd range is the last word in luxurious styling so if your mum’s gone really above and beyond her usual mum ‘duties’ recently, now’s the time to splash out.
If you’re mum is new to ghd or has been looking for an upgrade, than the ghd Original Earth Gold Limited Edition Styler is the one for her. The rounded barrel and floating plates allows the styler to effortlessly glide through hair and is perfect for creating straight or curly looks.
The optimum styling temperature at 185 degrees will be sure to leave her hair set in place all day long and heats up in just 30 seconds, so she won’t have to wait around before she can set them to her hair. For that extra peace of mind much like our other ghd stylers, this straightener has an automatic sleep mode after 30 minutes of non-use – so your mum’s fear of leaving things on is well and truly a thing of the past.
Another great choice is the ghd Dry and Style Deluxe Gift Set. For this gift set, the Air and Gold professional styler have teamed together to pack the perfect punch, answering all your mum’s styling needs in one go. Start with cutting your hair drying time in half with the ghd Air hairdryer, with its advanced ionic technology which will be sure to leave your mum with smooth, frizz free locks. Then, using the Gold professional styler, your mum can opt for poker straight or tumbling curls – and everything in between. Your mum’s dream of smooth, healthy looking hair is just minutes away.
If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to two ghd stylers, we highly recommend the ghd Smooth Styling Gold Gift Set. This gift set has Mother’s Day written all over it as it’s a great starter combo for anyone new to using professional stylers or looking to upgrade. The ghd Gold Professional Styler will deliver smooth, sleek hair with long lasting results, along with helpful tools like sectioning clips and the essential ghd Paddle Brush. Oh and she’ll also get a roll bag too which doubles up as a heat protection mat – perfect for on-the-go styling.
For the healer mums…
Do you believe your mum has healing powers? You’re probably right. It’s a little known fact (we think) that mums have the ability to make our pain seem less so when in their company. Whether it’s just giving us a simple heartfelt hug as we sob woefully in their lap, or whether it’s their instinct to cook up our favourite dish when they know something isn’t quite right. If you believe your mum has healing powers readily available for everyone else, but needs to preserve a little self-love for herself too, this gift’s the perfect choice.
The L’Anza Healing Nourish Gift Set, helps to reduce the effects of hair loss and thinning hair. The 3 step Anagen 7 System formula helps to improve the hair’s health, strength and thickness restoring strands back to life and reviving it from the toll of life’s stresses. The Stimulating Shampoo will remove sebum that clogs hair follicles that stop it from reaching its full potential while the conditioner injects hair with all the necessary nutrients for healthy hair growth. The final step with the Stimulating Treatment will activate hair follicles to boost revitalisation and growth properties. Help your mum take off some of the load which may have impacted on her hair growth, with this healing gift set.

For the model mums…
This one’s for all the mums who love to take care of themselves – our favourite kind!
If your mum loves to style her hair, we recommend the following gift sets from EIMI. The EIMI Ready To Go Gift Set is the perfect way to add texture and hold to her hair. Reveal a pearly finish with the EIMI Pearl Styler Gel, that’s equipped with a level 3 hold that’ll add body and definition to her strongest looks. Once styled, finish the look and keep it in place all day (and night) long with the Mistify Me Strong Hairspray. The micromist technology delivers a light weight, ultra-fine spray which diffuses evenly over hair. It’s quick drying action will see your mum ready to go in no time with luminous shine and an instant hold. Now if there was ever an excuse to take your mum out for the evening, there it is.
Equally magnificent is the EIMI Full Blown Fabulous Gift Set, where you’ll be able to get your mum to add bounce, definition and texture to her hair. All she needs to do is use the Root Shoot on the roots of her hair to add long lasting body and volume to her locks. Then she just blow dries as normal to set the hair into her favourite style. The Dry Me spray will create a matte, manageable texture which absorbs excess oil and refreshes looks between washes – leaving your mum looking picture-perfect every time you see her.
For all mums…
We all know just how important mums are to us, because let’s face it, we wouldn’t be here today without them. Picking out a gift for your mum can be easy, especially when you’re given a little help with suggestions (you’re welcome!) – and as you know she’ll appreciate just about anything you give her – but how do you go about making her gift just that extra bit special this year? Why not treat mum to something you’ll both enjoy together? Book in to your nearest salon and request a dual appointment where you’ll both get your hair expertly blow dried along with a glass of prosecco for good measure.
