Mother's Day is just around the corner, and with it comes the opportunity to celebrate the mother figures in your life - be that your mum, aunt, step-mum or a friend that's just become a new parent.
Of course, it's important to remind these people how special they are 365 days a year, but Mother's Day is about spoiling them in the way they deserve. So, beyond the obligatory breakfast in bed and bunch of flowers, here are some of our favourite Cowshed picks for Mother's Day gifting. Whether it's a set of body care essentials for a new mum or a hamper packed with everything needed to create an authentic Cowshed spa experience at home, you're sure to find the perfect present.
The at-home spa selection
For the person in your life who's in need of some me-time, this hamper is filled with 10 self-care must-haves to encourage serious relaxation. Inside this reusable wooden box, they'll discover body care bestsellers, like the Prebiotic Awake Body Butter and Walnut Wood Dry Body Brush, skincare heroes, such as the 20% Vitamin C Booster, and scents to turn their space into a sanctuary, like the Indulge Room Candle. This is pampering at its best.
The hand care heroes
If you're looking for a little something to remind them how much you care, look no further than this duo of Cowshed hand care essentials. Perfect to pop sink side, in this set you'll find the Refresh Hand Wash, with grapefruit, bitter orange and lavender essential oils to clean gently yet effectively. There's also the Refresh Hand Cream, the antidote to dry, neglected hands: shea and cocoa butters soothe and enrich, while antibacterial coriander oil calms and helps to kick-start circulation.
The hamper for the night owl
Between running around after everyone else - plus the stresses of juggling work, life and everything in between - your Mother's Day recipient might need a little extra help to wind down at night. This nine-piece hamper combines skincare and scent essentials for carving out some necessary downtime before bed, as well as a host of sleep essentials to make drifting off a little easier.
The relaxation-ready duo
Offering a daily dose of calm - while also helping them look after their skin in and out of the shower - this bath and body care duo is a Cowshed favourite (and for good reason). Scented with notes of Eucalyptus and Lavender to encourage full body and mind relaxation, this set combines the Relax Bath & Shower Gel, which gently nourishes and cleanses, and the Relax Body Lotion, formulated with Shea and Cocoa Butter for super-soft skin.
The new parent present
Created with new and expectant mothers in mind, this double act of body care goodies includes a pair of products that will nourish skin while also reminding the recipient to find time for some much-needed self-care, too. There's the Mother Bath & Shower Gel formulated with Sea Buckthorn oil, which is rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids to soothe skin, and the Mother Stretch Mark Oil that encourages epidermal elasticity and minimises stretch marks.
The calming scent set
Pairing together two of Cowshed's most beloved home fragrance products, this duo promises the perfect gift for anyone who loves to set the mood in their home through scent. Both infused with a relaxing blend of Eucalyptus and Lavender, the Relax Room Candle and the Relax Diffuser is guaranteed to create a calming atmosphere.
