Look no further.

Here's a really cool gift guide: 

Crabtree & Evelyn

I recently had the pleasure of smelling the Seaside Vibes candle by this magnificent British brand. Perfect for your bathroom and next soak (sorry cape Town), this will relax and rejuvenate all who enter this space. Notes of marine accord, bergamot, orange and lavandin blend beautifully together in a candle that will last you ages. R800. Shop it here. 


This literally just launched in South African last week, and we are all smitten! Sold at Melissa's and Beautifulage.co.za, it's every organic lovers dream range for body. We love the Grubby Cow handwash with sweet orange and peppermint oils. R345.

Vogue Eyewear x Gigi Hadid

The new eye-catching range by Gigi for Vogue Eyewear acetate shape and light-filled colours. I am dead for this collection.  Shop it on Zando.

Now this one is perhaps one of the greatest products ever invented. It comes at a steep price though. But if you can afford something luxe, and crave something filled with rich active anti-ageing ingredients, I would definitely say this is the one to splurge on. The Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask, R2010. 

Also try their skin analysis test, now available for free at counter at selected department stores. 

Jennifer Lopez bags

Currently in store, this JLo wallet is classic, with a bit of edge as it features some pretty hardware and faux snakeskin. Love! R799 at Frasers.


Dream Cream is worth all the hype. Light, cooling and easily absorbed into the skin, the combination of calming chamomile, organic, extra virgin olive oil and creamy, Fair Trade, organic cocoa butter quickly soothes and softens.  Yaaas. R235. 

GORGEOUS Sparkling Pinot Noir Chardonnay

If you loved the Gorgeous Pinot Noir Chardonnay, you (and your mom) will adore this sparkling version. Get it to celebrate Mother's Day in style. Shop it for R149 at most liquor stores and at Makro. 

Pichulik x Missibaba 

Local jewellery brand Pichulik has teamed up with local leather guru Missibaba to create a collection that is so covetable it almost feels like a crime that I don't own one of the pieces as of yet. Time to treat myself?

Elizabeth Arden

We are so obsessed with this Limited Edition Beautiful Color Moisturising Lipstick in Red Door Red by Elizabeth Arden. R295.


NEW! Get your mom her favourite shade in matte. Max Factor Lipstick, the Colour Elixir Velvet Matte collection, R155.95 at Clicks.

The best for mature skin, the Clarins Extra-Firming Day Cream is a must, R 935 at Woolworths.

Life Day Spa

Send your mom for a peel and reveal! Of the good sort.

There is such a negative connotation attached to the word ‘chemical peel’. But, as a matter of fact, having a peel done regularly is actually quite good for the skin.  

Glycolic acid, derived from sugar-cane, is one of the most well-known superficial peeling mediums on the market. Research has shown that a glycolic acid peel creates the least amount of inflammation in the skin, and can be used on all skin types and skin concerns.

This acid has a small molecular structure that can be readily absorbed by the skin.  Once absorbed, the acid dissolves the bonds that hold the dead cells together.  Once loosened, dead cells are able to exfoliate off the skin, revealing a more glowing and radiant skin.  

The Optiphi® Glycolic Acid Skin Rejuvenation Peel at the Life Day Spa is an excellent lunch-time peel. 


Then there's this. Shop Warwick wine, UCook food prep packages and much more online. 

This is what we got from them. Mmmmmm....
