I must admit, I’m more into spoiling my mom whenever I get the chance since we stay roughly more than 1000 km’s away from each other. So this occasion is a bit of a bittersweet one for me. Here are a couple of my favourite Mother's Day spoils that I would ideally be shipping to my mom as part of my monthly gift package. They are easy, intentional and can be loved by any mom, for sure. So whether it be a mom, mom-in-law, grandmother or mother figure spoil - I’m sure something in this Mother's Day gift guide will check the list.
FOR THE MOMS WHO LOVE A LIL’ PICK ME UP
Hand poured in South Africa, using a soy wax blend and fine perfume oils imported from the Grasse region of France. The elegant Cape Island glass cup can be rinsed and recycled once the candle is done.
This 75ml luxury hand lotion is made with indulgent coconut oil and fine fragrance oils. The perfect size to pop in your bag or give as a small gift.
FOR THE MOMS WITH A SWEET TOOTH
What if we told you there’s a chocolate out there that’s not only delicious but boasts health benefits too? BIOMEDCAN CBD Chocolate is handcrafted by Von Geusau Chocolates in South Africa. It contains BIOMEDCAN CBD (one of the natural compounds of hemp extract), which assists with one’s general well-being and is available in two variants: Milk and Dark (70% cocoa). Rich in flavour, its smooth texture melts in your mouth, and is the perfect treat after a long day.
FOR THE MOMS WHO ENJOY AROMATHERAPY
If Mom loves home fragrance products like candles or diffusers, then she’s bound to enjoy some aromatherapy products from the best essential oil producer in SA, SOiL. The SOiL Ceramic Aroma Burner and SOiL Wax Melts are the perfect duo for a beautifully scented home on a budget. The Wax Melts are available in different variants to create different moods – we recommend Relaxing Lavender and Uplifting Lemongrass for Mother’s Day.
If you’re working with a slightly bigger budget and want to invest in a larger spoil, why not treat Mom to a SOiL Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser? It disperses essential oils into the air via a fine mist, which fragrances the room and allows you to reap the wellness benefits of the oil. You only need a few drops of oil every time you use it. We recommend investing in SOiL’s essential oil blends, which have been expertly formulated to address a host of concerns. Try SOiL Inspire Blend R75 which contains a refreshing, uplifting and inspiring blend of lime, mandarin and spearmint or SOiL Sleep Blend R150 which contains a blend of lavender, bergamot, sweet marjoram and vetiver (which can provide a sedative effect and help promote peaceful sleep).
