3. A readymade beauty box

Next’s limited edition Spoil Her With Beauty boxes (£25 with £93 of products) feature pampering pieces including Neom Perfect Night’s Sleep Face Cream and NUXE Reve de Miel Hand And Nail Cream Mini.

For kids with pocket money, keep an eye out for gift sets under £10 including Sanctuary Spa Me Time Minis Gift Set, Champneys Treatments Moisturising Face Masks and Ted Baker Little Beauties Gift Set 2 at Boots.

Marks & Spencer, Superdrug, The Body Shop and Holland & Barrett also have carefully curated beauty boxes in store.


4. New mothers and mum-to-be pampers


Mamas & Papas, JoJo Maman Bebe and Boots have lovely ideas for new mums including Mama Mio Bloomin Lovely Pregnancy Gift Set and Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil.


5. Bohemian jewellery and big hair bows

Layered necklaces à la Taylor Swift at the Grammys; squishy, oversize hair bows; stacked bangles and gold hoops remain the biggest accessory trends. The secret is to mix dainty with bold. Go designer with Pandora, Beaverbrooks and Ernest Jones or high street at Accessorize, Next and H&M.

7. A memorable night out

Whiteley is home to a huge range of original ideas for Mother’s Day surprises: from a family day out of fun at Rock Up to a slightly chicer evening with friends enjoying Wildwood and Prezzo’s cocktails and menus.


8. A chic trenchcoat

It’s transition season and the trenchcoat remains the go-to must-own for every wardrobe. Find this season’s most wanted styles at H&M and River Island.

10. The trainers to own in 2024

Retro trainers are back in a big way with Adidas SL72 and the Samba OG going strong. See also Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66, Nike Air Force 1s and Cortez, New Balance 576 and Converse Move. Head to schuh and JD Sports.
