Essential Gift Ideas for Any Mom on Her Day
With Mother’s Day coming up on May 13, it isn’t too early to start thinking about what to give Mom. Let’s be honest, on the one day to give Mom love, you have to do it right even if she says she don’t want anything.
From overnight beauty bag essentials to aromatherapy that can help the sweetest momma to better deal with the fact that your sister is leaving her high-standing career to pursue a culinary dream. Our momma’s have always been there for us, so be sure to give them a little extra loving on this one, special day. Below are some great one-of-a-kind gift suggestions for the woman who has put up with all your histronics since birth:
The RescueHer Kit can fit into her purse and literally comes with everything she would need to survive a sleepover when she is not able to have all your nightly essentials with her. The kit includes beauty items and much needed items, such as tampons and pads. Not to mention it comes with a silver clip-on strap that can be attached to it so she can walk around with the kit alone, and it looks like a cute, regular bag.
If your momma’s button pops and needs sewn on, the kit has a needle and thread. If you invite her over for some babysitting, just have one of these kits ready for her that comes with Advil, bandages and roll-on deodorant in addition to eye shadow, contour palette, an eyeliner pencil with sharpener, full-volume black mascara, Bb cream and cheek bronzer. The kit retails for $49.95.
Aromatherapy sets have been getting a hot buzz lately and with good reason. With aroma diffusers being made in smaller sizes, one can easily put on by your nightstand, your office desk or in the nooks and crannies of your home. A great kit that comes with different scents, and is one of my favorites due to its no-heat diffusion, which means it wastes no oils, is the Everyone Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffuser.
This little kit helps bring negative ions, which have been shown to help with serotonin increase, into your space building a stronger immune system, thus making you less susceptible to respiratory illnesses and killing off bacteria and mold. This kit comes with two single note essential oils — peppermint and lavender — and four blends — Uplift, Balance, Focus and Fresh. You can choose from settings with different colors and tempos. It is practicality and cuteness all in one. It retails for $64.99.
Want to get something a little more luxurious? The PUR Energerizer Nano Solutions Skin Infuser is handheld, lightweight and portable and uses a misting technology that reenergizes her face, helps fight wrinkles and gets her face looking shiny, healthy and silky smooth. All these benefits come just from the misting formula that this device uses.
Apparently water can actually decrease the amount of all the good ingredients her face can absorb from serums, so this infuser does not use water at all. There are three options to choose from which vary from brightening her skin to adding mega moisture. The end result is that her face looks younger than ever before and, because it is portable device, she can use it in the car, at the office or in bed. This little beauty gift eliminates a lot of steps from her beauty regimen, so invest in it to have your mom feel better with younger-looking skin in about six weeks. It retails for $80.
