The ESPA Mother’s Day Gift Guide

The Perfect Mother’s Day Gifts

With Mother’s Day just a few days away, it’s time to consider how best to say thank you to the most special and deserving of women.

Whether it’s a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold or even a stern word on occasion, the support that mums and the mother figures in our lives provide is a reassuring and dependable constant we know we can always rely on, so make sure you’re showing her you truly appreciate her in the most personal of ways with our luxurious ideas for the perfect Mother’s Day gifts.

The Expectant Mum

Pregnancy Indulgence Duo

Pregnancy is an incredibly exciting and overwhelming time, with plenty of physical and emotional changes becoming an ordinary part of everyday life. Bestow a little calm and luxury to mums to be with our Pregnancy Indulgence Duothe Sweet Almond infused Nourishing Shower Cream and Nourishing Body Oil are the perfect panacea for hormonal skin and a busy mind.

If pregnancy is causing skin to feel really dry, upgrade to our Mum to be Collection. Offering Smooth and Firm Body Butter alongside Nourishing Shower Cream and Body Oil, this treat will intensely hydrate and soothe her changing body.


The New Mum


Becoming a new mum is incredible yet undeniably exhausting. Help her reclaim a little me-time with our Restorative Ritual Set.
Add one or two capfuls of Restorative Bath Oil to a deep, warm bath and let the aromas of Sandalwood and Frankincense essential oils calm the mind and ease any new-mum anxieties. Massage Pink Hair and Scalp Mud into damp hair and over scalp for a rich, nourishing hair treat, then smooth Overnight Hydration Therapy onto skin as a sleep-in face mask to combat the effects of those sleepless nights on skin. The perfect escape, however brief it may be, to a world of me-time, calm and indulgence.

The Active Mum

Fitness Shower Oil and Muscle Rescue Balm

Whether it’s heading to the gym between the school run and work, or managing to rouse her rabble to head out for a long walk every weekend, we all know an active mum (and wonder how she does it!).

Our Fitness Shower Oil and Muscle Rescue Balm are the perfect Mother’s Day gifts for the mum who never stops moving. The Fitness Shower Oil utilises the power of restorative West Indian Bay and Clove Bud oils to soothe and relax, Lavender helps calm a busy mind, while deeply nourishing Coconut Oil leaves skin soft and supple. Pair with our Muscle Rescue Balm with intensely cooling Peppermint and reviving Eucalyptus, and ensure the active mothers you know keep firing on all cylinders.

The On-the-Go Mum

Love Every Day

She’s dropped them at school, done a full day at work, picked the children up, taken them to sports clubs, brownies, drama lessons, cooked dinner, done the washing and still has things to do. On-the-go mums move a mile a minute, so they need skincare that keeps up with their fast-paced life.
Love Every Day offers the perfect Mother’s Day gifts for her desk drawer or handbag. Our Rejuvenating Hand Cream keeps busy hands soft, hydrated and bright, while Pink Pomelo Lip Balm nurtures dry, delicate lips. Luxury doesn’t have to take time, so give the gift of every day indulgence.

The Sentimental Mum

Hug Every Day Collection

While you may have already flown the nest, let mum know you still think about her every day with our A Hug Every Day gift.

With Restorative Bath Oil, Restorative Body Oil and a Restorative Candle, this dream-inducing collection offers a bath time ritual like no other. Draw a bath, light the scented candle and allow our bespoke aromatherapy blend of Sweet Orange, Rose Geranium and Lavender Essential Oils comfort, and calm, while Palmarosa and Sweet Almond Oils tone and nourish for beautifully smooth, soft skin.
