It comes round every year, and it is the 3rd of April in case you were wondering, and if you want to give something really lovely then divert from the well trodden chocolate and flowers path.

What mothers really want is some pampering and so I have found some lovely natural skin and body care gift sets from Living Nature, the New Zealand manufacturer of 100% pure, certified natural skin care and cosmetics. Obviously containing only 100% natural preservatives, fragrances and ingredients and no animal testing the company was one of the world’s first to produce skin care without the use of synthetic preservatives or parabens, and all products are tested rigorously to assess their purity, safety and efficacy for certification by BDIH Germany, a world-leading independent auditor of natural skin care and cosmetics.

All very well, but what are they like? Well I have tried them and apart from a packaging glitch where I kept trying to open the bottom of the moisturizer rather than the top (the printing is reversed so it is readable when the package is upside down) I was impressed. The quality and texture of the creams are lovely and their natural botanical ingredients such as Active Manuka Honey, antibacterial Manuka Oil, antioxidant-rich Totara ( a tree prized by the Maoris), ultra-hydrating and soothing Harakeke a native lily, and the cleansing Kumerahou shrub, deliver a wide array of skin-rejuvenating benefits. Which any harassed mother (is there any other kind) will find very soothing. Other ingredients include pure essential oils, citrus oils and flower extracts which help purify, hydrate and nourish the skin and you have a complete ‘MotherCare’ package.

There are three Living Nature’s Skin Essentials gift packs for different skin needs and one for the body so you have no excuse for not finding the perfect gift. In fact they would make an ideal travel set for any woman, mother or not. They are available from salons, pharmacies and health stores, by mail order and online. Skin Essentials packs are £25.55 and the Body Essentials pack is £20.45. In case of difficulty contact Living Nature (UK) on 0845 2508455, or visit the company website
