With Mothers day around the corner what beauty related products can you get your desi mum? 

If your mum is anything like mine she’ll say leave it, I can buy 3425 baby chickens for that amount.

My daughter came home having learnt a new hadith at mosque. Proudly she said, ‘Paradise lies under the feet of your mothers’. To which my youngest replied, “Ew but what if her feet stink?”…Kids!

However gifts are a lovely gesture to mark a day or impulsively at any time of the year, something that encourages some ‘me’ time is usually a good place to start. I mean who doesn't like a bit of self indulgence? A relaxing massage, facial or spa will surely be a much welcomed gift.

Safiyas retreat in Bolton offers a female only Spa environment. I took my mum there last year and she thoroughly enjoyed it. They have a sauna, infra red sauna, steam room, hot tub Jacuzzi, ice fountain and a foot spa. It’s not a huge establishment but they do cap numbers and you can opt for additional treatments. Sign up to their newsletter for offers www.safiyasretreat.com

If your mum prefers to be pampered indoors then Fatima Shikora offers a freelance masseur service in the comfort of your own home based in Blackburn, be sure to check out her instagram page @fatima_shikora

Why not give your mum the mummy of all hairdos! More often than not our mums totally neglect their hair and even opt for shop bought dye boxes to cover their silver tresses. Give them a treat at Twisted Hair Salon in Manchester. They truly understand Asian hair and this makes a big difference when colour treating and getting that perfect cut. Having undergone a new refurbishment they also offer a hijab friendly area. Tel: 0161 256 0070

If gift sets are more up your street, John Lewis have an array of them to suit all types, brand and price. I always like to look at the maximum ratings review. Here are some of my findings:
Why not try out the ‘Essentails Try me Kit’ by Liz Earle (Pictured on page 42). Priced at only £23 get a taster of these highly acclaimed products before splurging on the full size ones.

With all the sacrifices they've made, our appreciation for them shouldn't be limited to just one day, and infact the best gifts we can gift them don't cost a penny. A hug, call and a kiss is truly priceless.
