Are you ready for Mother’s Day? This year it falls on Sunday 19th March, so it’s time to get your thinking caps on. We all want to spoil our wonderful mums on this special day, and show them how much they mean to us. A thoughtful gift is a great way to show your mum, step-mum – or even someone who’s like a mum to you – how grateful you are to have them in your life, and to thank them for everything they do.

Mother's Day

Think outside the box

Chocolates, flowers and wine are popular traditional gifts, but they’re also pretty predictable. This year, why not put a bit more thought into your gifting, and show your appreciation with a scented candle, some wax melts or some pampering bath & body products instead? These little luxuries are always appreciated, last much longer than chocs and flowers, and are seldom something mums will splash out on for themselves. 

The gift of self-care

In today’s busy world, time is arguably the greatest gift of all. Home fragrance products are a brilliant way to give your mum the gift of self-care. Think about it: a luxury bath oil is far more than something just to fill the tub with. It represents a well-deserved half-hour of precious ‘me-time’ for your mum, away from all the rigours and responsibilities of hectic family life. And you can’t put a price on that! Likewise, luxury scented candles and/or room mists are far more than the sum of their parts, too. They represent a way to create a scented sanctuary for your mum, where she can enjoy spending time in her own individual way.

Exploring Owen Drew 

New to home fragrance shopping and not sure where to start? Our Owen Drew candles are always a popular gifting choice. But this niche, luxury British brand includes lots of other product options, all of which would make wonderful Mother’s Day presents. For example, why not combine an Owen Drew Luxury Bath Oil and an Owen Drew Luxury Soap for an indulgent bathing experience? It’s a duo that busy, stressed-out mums are sure to adore.

Shop and save

Lots of people aren’t sure how best to combine different products, so we’ve done the hard work for you. Our Shop & Save Luxury Home Bundles feature tried-and-tested product combinations that work in synergy with each other – and offer a significant price saving too.

Why not spoil your mum with our Owen Drew Wellbeing Trio Bundle? It includes the best-selling Owen Drew Orchid Noir Luxury Candle, the Owen Drew Sleep Luxury Room Mist and five Rose-Shaped Port of Liverpool Soy Wax Melts. Best of all, this bundle is priced at just £60 – a 20% saving on the usual £75 price. 

If your mum loves luxury scented candles, treat her to our Owen Drew Candle Duo Set. Priced at £63.99 (usual price £80), this bundle features two Owen Drew Platinum Luxury Candles, in stylish gift box packaging. We’ll even throw in free shipping for you, too!

We are also huge fans of the Owen Drew Luxury Room Mist collection. The new Dream Luxury Room Mist is the perfect choice for all those sleep-deprived mums out there. A few spritzes of this soothing lavender/chamomile blend will soon set the scene for slumber – and in due course, help any fatigued mum to feel refreshed and restored.

Pretty in pink

If you’re still not sure which luxury home fragrances to choose for your mum, think about the colours you know she likes. We’ve created an easy-to-browse Shop by Colour function, to help make your Mother’s Day gift-buying as easy as possible. Now that spring is in the air, green and yellow are fresh, uplifting colours to consider. Of course, pretty pinks are always popular for Mother’s Day too. 

At just £7.99 our Cosy Aromas Rhubarb Gin Bubble Bath is a great option if you’re on a tight budget (or you even could partner it with a bottle of actual Rhubarb Gin!). With its pretty floral packaging, our Wax Lyrical Rose Bud Medium Tin Candle would also make a lovely Mother’s Day gift. 

Fabulous florals

If you know which sort of scents your mum prefers, you can choose your Mother’s Day gifts using our fragrance family function. We’ve categorised our luxury home fragrances into five of the most popular categories: Citrus, Floral, Fresh & Clean, Fruity, Sweet & Spicy and Woody

Because florals have such a broad appeal, they are usually a safe bet for gifting purposes. As their name suggests, these scents come from flowers. Typically, they smell like fresh-cut flowers, and may also have a “powdery” note to them. Light florals (think rose, peony, violet and lilac) are perfect for spring. Our Cosy Aromas Strawberry & Lily 110g Wax Melts produce a fresh, fruity floral fragrance that would be perfect for mums who don’t like anything too overpowering.

Our final floral recommendation is our Self Care Co Rose + Bergamot Eco Soy Candle (260g). Hand-poured in small batches, with a burn time of around 60 hours, this aromatherapy candle is designed to create a refreshing and rejuvenating ambience, using calming blends of high-grade rose and bergamot essential oils. It’s also an original way to gift your mum roses on Mother’s Day!
