Mother's Day is coming up (May 8th for reference) and I though it might be the time for a little gift guide to help you pamper and spoil the mom (or mom-like figure) in your life. Granted, my picks do lean toward the beauty loving mom, but I think there is something here for almost anyone. Read on!
For the Fragrance Loving Mom
On-the-go Moms will love the portable vials of Lise Watier Vent du Sud, and the sweet and fresh scent that combines sensual and feminine notes of passion flower, jasmine and rose, warmed by an exotic fruit cocktail. It also features sweet, hot traces of amber, vanilla and wood-scented musk to be oh-so-perfect.
Treat Mom to florals that will last well beyond Mother's Day with the Demeter Orchid Collection featuring three limited edition orchid scents- Twilight, To Yo Ran, and Aphrodite's Slipper. Each scent is created to capture the unique and alluring properties of each orchid variety.
For the Skincare Loving Mom
Give Mom her best skin in just 28 days with the Yves Rocher Anti-Age global Complete Anti-Aging Cure. The serum is delivered in four cute little bottles to ensure it's concentrated ingredients stay fresh for optimal results.
If brighter skin is what she's after, the Laneige Bright Renew Capsule Sleeping Mask is a sure bet. The mask is individually packaged ensuring maximum efficacy of both formulas. Combine them prior to use for brighter skin thanks to green tea and truffle yeast extract.
For the Well Manicured Mom
It's not only practical, but the Avon Perfect Manicure Kit is also adorable. With tools clad in a white and blue floral print, and a silver and black floral laser cut storage case, it is sure to please any nail lover.
For colour loving Moms, Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquers are both gorgeous and a little bit luxe. With a ton of shades to choose from, there is something for every mom. Who can deny a bit of designer nail polish in their lives?
For the Hard to Buy For Mom
For the mom who has everything and also happens to love a bit of DIY, The Complete Guide to Natural Homemade Beauty Products & Treatments by Amelia Ruiz is a really fun option. The full colour book is filled with recipes for just about everything beauty from shampoo, to anti-aging skincare, and even toothpaste.
Everyone showers (well, they should...) so treat that hard to buy for Mom to a delightfully fragrant body wash. The Dial Silk & Magnolia Moisturizing Body Wash is kind to skin with a nourishing formula and an incredible sweet and lightly floral scent.
For the Makeup Loving Mom
THEFACESHOP Gelset Smudgeproof Auto Liner in 05 Kahki 0.6 g | Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipstick in Willow 4 g $28 USD / $34 CAD
A few new makeup bits are always fun, and a new liner with a supremely smooth formula is a good start. THEFACESHOP Gelset Smudgeproof Auto Liner in Kahki is not only fully waterproof, ultra silky and easy to apply, but is also a gorgeous deep green with fine golden shimmer.
The perfect nude shade is debatable, but Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipstick in Willow is a major contender. The shade is slight lavender undertone that is very pretty, and super wearable, while the hydrating formula is creamy, richly pigmented and ultra comfortable on lips.
And, there you have it! Do you plan on gifting any beauty bits to your Mom this Mother's Day?
