Sunday is the day to show our mums just how much we love them. What could say it better than a pampering treat to make her feel special? Here’s ELLE’s pick of the best gifts

I defy anyone not to sigh with delight when they receive a cream box tied with a black ribbon. Anything from Jo Malone’s collection of fragrance, candles and body treats is going to win your mum over but I am particularly in love with the Amber and Sweet Orange collection. You can create any boxed set combination, such as the home candle and living cologne room spray, £83.

The latest range of Harvest fragrances by Givenchy are an indulgent treat. Each of the design houses signature scents has been enriched to create a new enhanced scent. My favourite is Amarige eau de parfum, £65 for 60ml, exclusive to Harrods. Mimosa flower, harvested from the fragrance capital Grasse in France, has been added to the sensual blend of mandarin, neroli and white flowers. Happy in Bloom perfume spray, £23 for 30ml, by Clinique, also blends mimosa with a fresh combination of crisp lily of the valley, freesia and plum.

A lipstick from the Micheal Kors Very Hollywood collection for Estee Lauder , £17, will add a little piece of designer limited edition panache to your mum’s make-up bag. I would plump for a shade you know she wears everyday, such as Starlet Rose, a beige tinged pink, and why not splash out for a more daring colour, like Bungalow Pink to bring her bang on trend.

Finally as a new mum myself, what would put a beaming smile on my face is a bath oil by Neom, £32. The range contains high quality oils and organic ingredients, packaged beautifully in glass bottles. My favourite is Real Luxury, which blends lavender, jasmine and Brazilian rosewood. Hint, hint!
