We all know mums are amazing and deserve the very best. Give your mum a guaranteed Christmas treat of affordable organic luxury this year. Not sure what to get? Below is a round up of some of the most popular gifts from Weleda's 2017's Christmas gift range.
For the sporty mum
Whether she's a gym bunny or Zumba queen, she's sure to appreciate the muscle soothing power of Arnica. Weleda Arnica Gift Trio features a gym sized body wash, an exclusive 50ml Arnica therapeutic milk bath and the best selling sports massage oil in the world!
For the stylish mum
There's always one mum who looks like she could be gracing the catwalk instead of the school run. Weleda Tinted Lip Balms were a hit with make-up artists and models alike at London Fashion Week in September. Three subtle shades enhance natural beauty, whilst organic jojoba oil and shea butter soften and protect.
For the practical mum
Cult hero product Skin Food is the multitasking queen's dream. Apply to dry patches, use on the lips, cuticles, smooth away flyaway hair, use as a face mask, primer underneath make up ... just like this mum, there is nothing Skin Food can't do! Weleda Skin Food Winter Survival gift set pairs Skin Food with the equally handy Everon lip balm.
For the mum in need of a hug
Weleda Wild Rose Ribbon Gift is a hug in a box. For the mum who has recently separated, or been so busy caring for others that she's exhausted herself. The body wash, body lotion and organic perfume contain essential oils of damask rose, geranium and ylang ylang to restore harmony to body and mind.
For the new mum
Weleda Lavender Milk Bath is the perfect pick me up for the sleep deprived. The gift features a beautifully designed sleeve that lends itself to any occasion, not just Christmas. Can't find ten minutes for a bath? Simply soak a flannel in a basin filled with warm water and a capful of milk bath, apply to the face and inhale deeply.
For the well groomed mum
You'll never catch this mum sporting chipped nails or a monobrow! Give her the gift of Weleda Pomegranate Nail Pen to keep her manicure looking fresh. It comes with a handy travel-sized tube of celebrity favourite Skin Food.

What's on your Weleda wish list this Christmas?
January passed in the blink of an eye and February, the month traditionally associated with all things romantic, is already upon us.
If, like me, you're already jaded by the 'funky pig' card companies bombarding the media with ads for cards, flowers and gifts, why not put a spin on Valentine's celebrations this year? To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, begin a lifelong romance and treat yourself!
For the very first time, iconic natural brand Weleda have launched a range of organic tinted lip balms, available in three colours at a purse friendly £6.95 each. The shades are:
Berry red - a browny-red, the boldest of the three, to give that gorgeous 'just bitten' look
Rose - a dusky pink, girly and feminine with a bit of sparkle
Nude - a caramel buff shade to create a neutral lip (think Kim Kardashian)
Each squeeze of these beautiful balms provides lips with nourishment and moisture, courtesy of organic shea butter and organic jojoba oil. Most organic lip balm formulations contain beeswax, hence are unsuitable for vegans ... not these ones! (vegans rejoice!). As with all Weleda products, they are 100% cruelty free and free from potentially harmful synthetic chemicals - after all, who wants lead in their lipstick?
But wait! That's not the best bit! Knowing how much us ladies love a good deal, Weleda have released a limited edition lip balm gift set comprising of all three lip balms in a stylish, eco-friendly gift bag for just £15! Try each shade for yourself to pick a favourite, or blend to customise to your preferred look/mood.
Beauty tip - prime chapped winter lips with Weleda's Everon balm (£4.25) or Weleda's 'can't live without' handbag essential Skin Food (£7.50) before applying your chosen shade or combination of colours. For a glossier finish, add a dab of Weather protection cream and pucker up, princess!
Whether you decide to treat yourself, your other half or a friend in need of some love this Valentine's Day, get your gift set whilst stocks last! (The sets would also make a lovely Mother's Day gift, but they may be long sold out by then - so get in early!).
