Spoil mum with a sculptural candle like this one from Cire Trudon. The Trudon Alabaster Héméra Candle, $339, comes housed in an alabaster vessel – a soft stone revered by the ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans for its milky appearance and to softly diffuse light. Each alabaster vessel has been sculpted in Spain by hand out of a single block of stone, meaning no two are alike. The scent inside boasts woody notes that create a balmy, sensual atmosphere.

What Glasshouse Scent Scene, $50, lacks in liquid, it makes up for in potency. This unique, liquid-free diffuser comes with two individually packaged Scent Stems designed to sit in the supplied metal vessel away from open windows or vents. Each stem emits scent for up to 30 days, at which time you can switch them out for the other fragrance included. Replacement Scent Stems are sold separately for $17 and come in a range of seven of Glasshouse Fragrance’s most-loved scents. Old stems can be added to paper recycling as part of your kerbside collection.

Prepare to pamper mum with the special gift edition of Dyson’s Supersonic hair dryer, $599, which has been reimagined in a fuchsia and nickel colourway for Mother’s Day. It comes available as a set with the Detangling Comb which recruits wide, polished teeth to detangle wet hair with little to no friction, and the 35mm Vented Barrel Brush, which helps to deliver volume and shape as you style. Together, all three help to create the kind of I-just-stepped-out-of-the-salon look from the comfort of home.
