Aside from five minutes peace and lots of cuddles, we've asked some of the mums at Kiana Beauty what they would love to receive this Mother's Day.
On Mother's Day, I'm looking forward to the hand-made cards and gifts from my three daughters.
I love looking at their drawings and reading their sweet messages.
I'd also LOVE to receive Goldfield & Banks Wood Infusion, which, if he asks nicely, I might even share with my husband!

Mum of three
On Mother's Day I look forward to all of my family coming over to my house for dinner. Six adults, four dogs, one 22 month old grandson and a baby granddaughter.
It will be noisy, chaotic and lots of mess and I love it!
When they've all gone home, I'll clean up, feel exhausted and thank God for my wonderful family!
I'd be really happy to receive the Jojoba Company 100% Natural Ultimate Night Cream, especially at this time of the year.
It nourishes the skin while you sleep and when I use this product, I definitely notice the improvement in my skin when I wake up.

I love receiving my daughter's handwritten cards on Mother's Day.
She puts so much thought into them and is extremely creative with her writing and experiments with different fonts.
It would be lovely to receive the KORA Organics Balancing Rose Mist.
I love its scent and it's an absolute staple in my nightly routine.

Mum of one
I'm looking forward to a cosy dinner with my family this Mother's Day.
This year it will be a very special one, as it's my daughter-in-law's first as a mum and mine as a grandma!
The new fragrance Bvlgari Splendida Magnolia Sensuel Eau de Parfum is on the top of my wish list.
It's feminine, sultry and stunning.
I just love this fragrance.

On Mother's Day I look forward to the beautiful hand-made cards my children make along with the heartfelt messages inside.
My sweet boys love to decorate with lots of colour and sparkle, producing beautiful and cheerful cards, just like themselves.
I'd love to receive Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Pure Nectar Eau de Parfum for Mother's Day.
It smells divine and transports me back to my favourite sea-side family holiday.

Mum. Just three letters that come with unconditional love and a great deal of wisdom.
Throughout our lives, there are many times we draw on the advice given to us from our mums and there are also times where we ignored it, but wish that we hadn't!
Mum knows best about many things, and just one of these things is real-life beauty. We ask some of the Kiana Beauty team to share the best beauty advice they received from their mum and share this mum wisdom with you.
Chan, Amazing all-rounder
The best beauty advice my mum gave me was that less is more when it comes to makeup and that makeup should enhance my features and not change my whole look.
Mum also taught me that sunscreen is a must to protect my skin from the sun.
Stav, Co-Director Kiana Beauty
My mum has amazing skin.
The most important beauty advice my gorgeous mum has given me is to look after my skin with good quality skincare and to eat my greens for radiant skin.
Mum has also taught me that a bright lipstick will create the illusion of being well-rested when I'm tired and have dark circles under my eyes.
My mum never wore makeup, but she instilled in me the importance of cleansing and moisturising my skin twice a day.
She also told me to never smoke, to eat fruit and vegetables and to drink plenty of water for optimal health and great skin.
I'm proud to say that I've followed her advice and have passed it on to my own daughter.
Kelly, Co-Director Kiana Beauty
My mum is very low key when it comes to beauty routines, but is big on hydration.
Her best beauty advice is to moisturise, moisturise, moisturise.
Hydrated skin will always look better than dry, flaky skin.
If you feel like Mother's Day has just crept up on you this year, there's no need to panic.
A Kiana Beauty Gift Voucher makes the perfect last minute gift, that will be emailed directly to you and allows your mum to buy something she'll LOVE to use.
On behalf of the Kiana Beauty team, we wish all mums a wonderful Mother's Day.
We thank you for all the wisdom you share with us and for your unconditional love.

It's hard to believe that Chanel No. 5 is 96 years old. Yes, you read right, 96 years old.
Launched in 1921 as Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel's first fragrance, it was a revolutionary product which smelt unlike any perfume that had come before it.
The magic ingredient? Aldehydes.
Aldehydes had only been recently isolated by chemists, but because they were so strong, no perfumer had dared to use them.
It is thought that Chanel's perfumer, Ernest Beaux, added an unusually large amount of aldehydes to the fifth sample (perhaps accidentally), and Chanel No. 5 was born.
Today, nearly a century later, Chanel No. 5 is still considered the most recognisable name in perfumery across the world.
Chanel No. 5 is available in a parfum (the strongest and most concentrated form, available in dab bottles or flacons), an Eau de Parfum, as well as an Eau de Toilette (the lightest form, generally available in sprays).
There are also a number of additional bath and body products available in the Chanel No. 5 scent.
These add a luxurious layer to your fragrance, making it linger longer through the day. They also make a thoughtful gift for that special someone who already wears Chanel No. 5.
We love Chanel No. 5 The Body Lotion. It is delicately scented, has a beautifully light texture, and will give your skin a boost of moisture.
Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle fragrance, or 'Coco Mad' as it is affectionately known, is a much more recent creation, launched in 2001. Feminine, rich and full of contrasts, it is thought that it is more widely worn that Chanel No. 5.
This oriental-fresh fragrance contains Sicilian oranges, a floral heart with pure jasmine and rose extract, and a Patchouli and Vetiver base. It is dedicated to the bold, courageous and modern woman who appreciates luxury and elegance.
Infused with a delicate scent, a few sprays of this body oil will leave your skin caressed and moisturised, and feeling satiny soft.
It really is a luxurious touch to your morning routine.
Whether you're buying a gift for a wonderful mum this Mother's Day, or simply something for yourself, a little luxury from Chanel is always a good idea.
At Kiana Beauty, we only stock genuine Chanel products, and we are proud to include complimentary Chanel black and white gift wrap with all Chanel orders.
If you have any questions, or need more gift inspiration, contact us here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and one of our team will get back to you.

Good luck everyone! And Happy Mother's Day to all the mums out there.
When I became a mum, I wasn't prepared for just how much my heart would overflow with love for my tiny little miracles. I've spent hours gazing into each of their eyes, rocking them to sleep and lovingly soothing them when they were unsettled.
These all-consuming acts of love can leave us Mums with very little time to spend on ourselves. We tend to put our own needs last and learn to cut corners on our beauty rituals so that we have enough time to make school lunches and find missing library books in the morning.
This Mother's Day, I'm reclaiming some time to myself and treating myself to a little luxury every day with Jurlique's Beautiful Rituals Gift Sets.
I'm also planning on giving my own mother the gift of Beautiful Rituals to thank her for her unconditional love and so that she can pamper herself too.
Here are Jurlique's organic and beautifully curated Gift Sets for Mother's Day. Each one is packaged in an elegant gift box.
Body Care Ritual, $75Shower from head to toe with the heavenly scent of roses this Mother’s Day. Gift set includes:
Face Care Ritual, $130
Give Mum the gift of glowing skin this Mother’s Day. Gift set includes:
- Rosewater Balancing Mist 100mL
- Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cream Mask 100mL

If you need more help selecting the perfect gift for your special Mum, feel free to contact our Jurlique expert, Sue via our Ask an Expert feature to tailor a skincare regimen to suit your Mum's needs.
Answer a few simple questions about your Mum and our Gift Concierge will help you find the perfect gift.
All orders from Kiana Beauty arrive beautifully wrapped and with a handwritten note and can be posted to Mums living interstate or overseas.
On behalf of myself and the Team at Kiana Beauty, we wish all the Mums a wonderful Mother's Day.
How do you say thank you on Mother's Day? Someone who carried you for nine months, gave birth to you, fed you, read you bedtime stories, wiped your nose when it dripped and gave you endless cuddles and kisses. Now that we are mums ourselves, we have a new appreciation for mums (and dads!) and all that they do.
Fragrances are more than just a scent. They allow you to enter a world of dreams, evoke beautiful memories, or transport you back to a wonderful experience. Fragrances can enthrall, inspire and reflect your mood.
Our team here at Kiana Beauty Melbourne has compiled a list of our top 10 fragrances for Mother's Day, in no particular order. Every one of our orders, whether ordered for Mother's Day or not, comes beautifully giftwrapped in our signature paper.
