Personalised beauty gifts to get your mum this Mother's Day
Keep it mum
We've already narrowed down some of the choice beauty options for mothers everywhere, but with the big trend for personalisation on the rise, it's the perfect opportunity to get mum something a little more tailored. While full-on bespoke gifts — in the strictest sense of the word — are rare for most beauty items, there's nothing to stop you from getting mum's initials or a sweet phrase etched, engraved or embossed on eveything from a candle to a luxury perfume travel case. Here are some options that have caught our fancy and are sure to catch hers.
We're fans of Louis Vuitton's line of seven women's fragrances that were released last year, and the storied brand now has created exquisite, second skin travel cases for its scents. Lightweight and practical in the house's signature leather and sealed with a neat buckle, get yours hotstamped in store to give it a personal touch.
From $430-$770. At Louis Vuitton boutiques
JO MALONE LONDON
If mum loves the fresh, floral and invigorating scents from Jo Malone London, now's the time to get her a candle, bath oil or cologne and have it personalised with a thoughtful message or stylish monogram. It's only available for a limited time, so head down to the brand's boutques to get it done in time for the big day.
At Jo Malone London's Ion Orchard boutique on 12 May from 2-6pm and the Raffles City Boutique on 13 May from 1-5pm.
Get her a brilliant new My Burberry scent — try the Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette or the newer Black Parfum version — in a full-sized 90ml version and you can get mum's monogram engraved on the bottle. Chic and modern, having her initials (in a special font no less) on the luxe, weighty bottles will make them great adornments for her dressing table.
Available at the Burberry Beauty TANGS at Tang Plaza counter and the Burberry boutique at Ion Orchard
Though it might arrive a little late for Mother's Day, all will be forgiven once mum gets hold of her personalised Charlotte Aluna vanity case. Bonus points for it harkening back to the more glamorous yesteryear that she (likely) lived in. These patent leather cases with a luxe, suede finish can be customised all the way – from the colour of the exteriors, interiors and handles, to having your initials engraved on the lock.
The Lottie Box Bag in classic colourways is priced at £1,200. The Maxi Lottie Bag in classic colourways is priced at £1,400. The Charlotte Aluna bespoke service costs +£50 for both sizes. Available on the Charlotte Aluna website
YVES SAINT LAURENT BEAUTÉ
If mum loves her lipsticks get her one with a personalised message or her name stamped on from the luxury French makeup brand. She'll adore the beautiful textures and chic packaging. If you purchase two or more lipsticks, you can enjoy complimentary engraving just for one day.
On 13 May, from 5-10pm, at the Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Ion Orchard boutique
