Just because you left it to the last possible minute to tell her what a great head of the house she is doesn't mean the gift you bestow has to be a crappy one.
New scent launches abound and perfume is a great pressie to give and get. Here's a few that'll get you out of the doghouse.
Show me a woman who wouldn't like to get something from Jo Malone and frankly, you can blow me down with a feather. The brand's newest scent suite is Sweet Lime and Cedar, and there's a whole host of companion products to the fragrance, which starts at €49 for 30ml. You can also bag a 250ml shower gel for €88, a candle for €61.50 or a body creme for €45.50.
DKNY's Delicious gift sets are on counter now, and the Be Delicious Night Spring set contains a 50ml eau de parfum spray plus a 100ml body lotion, for €56.
Theirry Mugler's Alien Sunessence Eau de Toilette Légère is a re-working of the original scent and perfect for the sunny days we've been having recently. Buy this for the mum who likes heady, oriental notes. Pick it up for €45.
New from Elizabeth Arden is Pretty, a feminine floral that contains Petalia, a new scent molecule that the brand say will be a 'new floral icon'. Check it out for yourself from €36 for 30ml.
Lastly, and one that's best suited to younger mums is Lacoste's latest line extension for their Touch of Pink fragrance. More suited to night, this is the new Love of Pink. At department stores nationwide.
