Mother’s Day is less than a week away and after the last couple of years, we definitely want to give our moms something special this year. The Kit’s Shopping Editor and Editor of The Kit Chinese Edition, Renée Tse, shares some sweet and thoughtful ideas for all moms in the list below.
There’s nothing like a piping hot bath to wind down after a long day, so help mom melt her stress away with this Canadian, clean, and green decadent bath bomb from Bathorium. Mama’s Perch features gardenia and geraniums to put the mind at ease. The vegan coconut milk turns the bath into a creamy blissful experience that hydrates and nourishes your skin. The rose petal water can help refresh your skin while calming skin irritations.
SHOP: Mama's Peach Bath Balm; $12 at Bathorium
Moonday is a Canadian self-care brand featuring a delicious array of all-natural soy-wax candles. The brand only uses 100% vegan and natural ingredients scented with phthalate-free fragrances and essential oils to give you the ultimate clean and relaxing experience. We love these two scents especially: ‘But First, Laundry’ will fool everyone into thinking the room is clean with its grapefruit and clean linen scent. ‘Give Me a Break’ will transport mom with its coconut and lime-scent. They’ll be exhaling all the stress out.
Clé de Peau Beauté Brightening Mask Treatment is a super-luxe sheet mask for brighter-looking skin. This two-step ritual includes the Brightening Gentle Exfoliator Supreme, which gently purifies and refines skin, removing dead surface cells and creating a warming sensation. The sheet mask that follows features brightening ingredients to protect the skin’s inherent radiance and create a calming, cooling sensation. It’ll visibly make your skin brighter.

Give mum the gift of self-care with this beautiful gua sha tool made of obsidian stone from the Asian-Canadian beauty brand Métange. The brand recently launched this hair and body gua sha tool, inspired by traditional Chinese medicine practices, and it not only helps massage acupoints along the hairline to increase blood circulation but also promotes lymphatic drainage and relieves tense muscles that may or may not have developed while working from home this past year.
SHOP: The Duality Stone Black Obsidian Gua Sha Stone Comb; $89 at Métange
If you think a tinted lip oil may not be a worthy gift for your mom, you may see things differently with this beautiful one from Hermès. The French beauty brand just launched its first lip oil collection and it’s available in six really wearable, everyday shades. What I love about them is that they’re slightly scented. For example, this pink-red tint Rouge Amarelle smells like candy.
SHOP: Hermesistible Infused Care Oil; $69 at Hermès
Help make sure mom’s beauty sleep is uninterrupted with this luxe-feeling sleep mask. Crafted from pure Mulberry silk, RE.VITYL’s RE.LEASE Sleep Mask has a magical sleep-inducing secret. It's infused with 16 crystals you can barely feel that have been lab proven to relieve stress and anxiety so you can sleep better.

This is a stylish and super soft spring-weight robe in “celery green” from Parachute aptly named the Cloud Cotton Robe. Made with 100% Turkish cotton, this robe features fluffy, lightweight 4-ply gauze, a snug waist tie, and two side pockets to hold whatever she needs while lounging chicly at home.

Help mom say goodbye to cold coffee. This smart Ember mug from Indigo features a technology that allows you to set the exact drinking temperature using an app on your smartphone for your hot (or cold!) beverage, so mom can always enjoy their coffee or tea the way they like it from the first sip to the last drop. You’ll want to steal it for yourself, but try to resist the impulse.
