There are a million different kinds of moms, and they all deserve something special for Mother’s Day. Pamper her with one of these gorgeous gifts…bonus points if you bring flowers, too!
Fragrance is a traditional gift, and wonderful for Spring. I love the new AERIN Aegea Blossom Eau de Parfum. This a light, fresh fragrance with floral notes of Sicilian Bergamot, verbena, neroli petals, jasmine and blooming orange blossom. It has a coastal feel to it; very summery and airy. I have quite a few AERIN fragrances, and they’re exceptional quality. Beautiful!
If your mom loves to travel, gift her with this practical, yet fun CHI® Pineapple Crush Travel Kit. It has everything she needs for gorgeous hair on the go. Included is a two-speed CHI Travel Dryer (pink) that folds up for portability, CHI Ceramic 1″ Travel Iron (pink), sectioning clips, mini Thermal Protection Spray and Silk Infusion, plus this adorable Travel Bag with a retro pineapple print on it. The travel dryer has plenty of power (1400 watts) and dries hair quickly and thoroughly. I love that everything is color-coordinated, too.
Makeup can sometimes be hard to gift, but NARS makes it easy with the new Lost In Luster Face Palette. No guesswork needed, as the colors are neutral and easily wearable. The palette includes four eyeshadows in As You Please (matte beige), Let Go (matte taupe), Dazed (rose gold) and Free Fall (shimmering taupe brown); highlighter in Free To Fly (pink champagne) and blush in Crush (golden strawberry pink, although I find it more peachy). So versatile and the perfect size to toss into a handbag, makeup bag or travel bag. Love!
Another beauty find for mom: the new Let’s Glow Lip Illuminators from Sara Happ®. A lip illuminator adds a highlighter effect to the lips, giving a natural glow and enhancing the shape. Formulated with reflective ultra-filling spheres and nourishing sweet almond oil, the Let’s Glow Lip Illuminators come in two shades: Pearl, which is an ethereal pink or Golden, which is a gold-bronze shade. Can be worn over lipstick, too, to add dimension and extra shine. Gorgeous!
Give mom something that she can enjoy at home…Bastide Ambre D’ Or Potpourri Scented Crystals. This is a perfect choice for the mom that loves decorating, or home fragrances. The Ambre D’ Or Potpourri Scented Crystals are not only beautiful to look at, the scent is warm and inviting. Place the crystals in a glass dish or bowl to display (make sure to keep out of children’s reach). I didn’t find the fragrance to be overpowering at all; you can control the intensity with how much you use. For more scent, divide into multiple containers and place in various spaces. So pretty!
Does your mom love skincare? Or maybe she loves roses. Give her the best of both worlds with the Fresh® A Rosy Outlook set. I use all the Fresh Rose products, and can tell you that they work wonders for dry, dehydrated skin. This set includes mini sizes of four of my favorites: Rose Face Mask, Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner, Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream and a Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15. Indulgent and effective!
