The Loveliest Gifts for Every Budget to Spoilt Your Mum This Mother’s Day
It’s no secret that mum’s are pretty great people. No matter what the mother figure in your life looks like, chances are they are the person you turn to when you need an extra dose of love and support. Mother’s Day is a great time for you to show your appreciation for this special person, so if you’re on the hunt for the perfect present, look no further than this gift guide.
When it comes to gift-giving, it doesn’t matter how much you spend but rather the thought behind your gift. So, to make gift-giving easier for you, we’ve rounded up some of the loveliest presents that suit a number of budgets. Below, you’ll find gift broken down into price brackets, so you can shop the best pressie for your budget.
Over $500: Dyson Corrale™ Hair Straightener
Make mum’s life easier with Dyson’s Corrale™ Hair Straightener ($699). This straightener has three heat settings (165°C, 185°C and 210°C — allowing you to choose the heat based on your hair type) and is controlled by a thermal system that regulates the temperature of the flexing copper plates 100 times a second, which is far better for hair health.
These clever copper plates also allow one to create the same style but with much less heat, allowing you to straighten at lower temperatures than your hair is used to. And, your mum will never have to worry about knotted cords again as the Dyson Corrale™ Hair Straightener is cordless — genius, right? Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the device allows one to style their hair anywhere at any time while also delivering the thermal performance of a regular corded straightener. Simply pop it in your handbag and go!
If that wasn’t enough, the addition of flexing plates within the device means it shapes around the hair to gather it which gives you more control. The straightener allows one to achieve their desired style without the need to repeatedly straighten the same sections of hair, resulting in less damage, reduced frizz and far fewer flyaways as well as increased shine. Healthy hair is just around the corner.
Dr Dennis Gross Spectralite Faceware Pro Pewter
Spoil your mum with Dr. Dennis Gross’ limited edition Spectralite Faceware Pro Pewter ($697). This LED device fights acne and wrinkles thanks to the combination of 100 red LED and 62 blue LED lights.
