Mother’s Day is next weekend…if you haven’t gotten around to shopping yet, I’ve been searching to find the best, most perfect gift for the Mom in your life. Here are my suggestions…
A hard-working Mom will appreciate a great hand cream. The Omorovicza Nourishing Hand Treatment is rich in minerals from Hungarian thermal waters, antioxidants like Vitamin C to help brighten skin and improve the appearance of age spots and the best part? It absorbs well into skin, is fragrance-free and non-greasy.
Omorovicza Nourishing Hand Treatment is available at Neiman Marcus and www.omorovicza.com, $70.
Does your Mom love to travel? She can close her eyes and envision she’s on vacation to exotic Istanbul, sophisticated St. Moritz or captivating Capri with a Vie Luxe Voyage Collection candle. Each all-natural soy candle was inspired by one of Vie Luxe founder Marjorie Gubelmann’s favorite destinations. My favorite scent is Capri, with notes of Italian bergamot, fresh lemon blossoms, rich cypress & citrus zest.
The Vie Luxe Capri Large Candle (8 0z.) retails at $48 and is available at Saks or at www.vieluxenyc.com.
Maybe your Mom loves gardening–or just loves flowers. Prada Infusion de Rose is an exotic take on a classical rose fragrance. Imagine fresh rose petals mingling with tea, roses and honey, crushed in the hand with mint leaves. The packaging is impressive, too, with a fantasy scene of wood nymphs at play among giant rose petals, sourced from a Prada Spring/Summer 2008 collection print.
Prada Infusion de Rose retails at $105 for the 3.4 oz. bottle and is available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
If your Mom is a fashionista, she’ll be on-trend with the new Coach Signature Summer Limited Edition fragrance. This fragrance is a blend of soft fruits and florals with herbal notes, musk and exotic woods. I tried this at my local Coach store and the most predominant notes were floral–white freesia, giant water lily and muguet; very pretty.
If your Mom loves jewelry, she might like this Starfish Necklace from stella & dot. This 17 3/4″ necklace features a sterling silver starfish and other charms. It’s a classic necklace that will never go out of style.
The Starfish Necklace retails at $69; for more information, check out stella & dot.
If you’ve picked up a magazine lately, you know color is a huge trend for spring! A sporty Mom will be on time for soccer games, basketball practice or running errands with this Classic Pastel pink Ice-Watch®, featuring a solid polycarbonate band and matching sunray dial.
The Classic Pastel Ice-Watch® retails at $110 and is available at www.ice-watch.com.
Show “Mum” the love with a gift of relaxation from LUSH. This Mum Gift Set from LUSH has everything she needs to recreate a spa experience at home. This decorative hatbox contains: Pop in the Bath bubble bar, Dorothy bubble bar, Purple Mum bath bomb, Keep it Fluffy bath bomb, Honey I Washed the Kids soap, Dream Cream and Grass shower gel.
