Last minute beauty gifts for mother's day
Mother's day is this 8 May. If you haven't picked something up already, here are some special sets that mum will truly appreciate

Okay, so you're a bad daughter. While other kids were busy booking expensive brunches or splurging on fine jewellery for their mums, you were so busy with work you kind of forgot to get her something. Fret not. Pick up a beauty coffret — containing everything from candles to exquisite skincare — so you can still give mum a slice of quiet luxury. Here are some fail-safe gift ideas.

A tiny hat box full of little treasures
If half the impact and beauty of a gift is in its packaging, this Crabtree & Evelyn set is a sure winner. In a pretty, yellow floral design, this contains miniatures of the brand's Somerset Meadow Shower Gel and Body Lotion and two tiny tubes of Hand Therapy — one for her bedside and one for her purse.

Crabtree & Evelyn Little Luxuries, $35

Luxury candles
Cult fragrance brand Penhaligon's London has a beautiful trio of tea-infused candles — there's Assam, Neroli and Earl Grey — that also come in the most gorgeous packaging and is sure to delight any mum who loves to entertain at home.
