Last-Minute Beauty Gifts for Mother’s Day
Sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect gift to show your mom how much she means to you. Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and if you’re stumped on a gift, there are many last-minute options that can be perfect for the occasion. Every woman could use a little pampering in their life, so grab one of these beauty gifts to treat your mom this Sunday:
Being a mom can be stressful, so a massage is a perfect way to help your mom relieve tension and feel pampered. Take your mom out for a massage so you can spend some time together, or pick up a gift card so she can schedule one when she needs it.
Perfume makes a great gift for any woman. Try a nice floral perfume like Daisy from Marc Jacobs for a feminine scent she can take with her all day long. If she’s more into musky fragrances, go for Versace Woman, which has notes of jasmine and bergamot.
Treat your mom to an indulgent and relaxing experience by going with her to get manicures and pedicures. Not only will she look and feel good, but she’ll get to spend some quality time with you as well. If you’re not able to take her out, get her some nice nail polish so she can pamper herself at home.
Ipsy or Birchbox subscription
If your mom is a makeup junkie, she will love a subscription to one of these beauty boxes. Have a curated box of beauty goodies like makeup products, hair products and beauty tools dropped off at her door every month. Order a subscription and let her know it’s coming.
Lotion or body creme
A lotion or body creme is a practical gift that she can use daily, but can still make her feel indulgent. Try a gift set from Bath and Body Works, like this one that comes with shower gel, body lotion, fine fragrance mist, ultra shea body cream and a shower sponge in a cute basket. If she’s more into name brands, try a more luxurious gift like Tom Ford’s Radiant Moisture Souffle.
Try getting her something she doesn’t already have to add to her makeup collection. For something extra special, pick up something that is limited edition that she won’t always be able to get. Grab the Summer 2016 London with Love Blush Highlighter by Burberry from Sephora. For a more affordable option, go for the Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette, a limited edition palette found at Sephora or Ulta.
Help her keep all her beauty products in one place with a nice makeup bag. Fashion-loving moms will love being able to travel with their makeup in style. Vera Bradley has cosmetic bags in a lot of patterns, so you can find one that’s perfect for her. Check out this striped cosmetic bag for a small perfect-for-summer case she can throw in her purse, or for a chic bag she can travel with go for the Preppy Poly Large Cosmetics Bag.
