06 May 2017 Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Hi everyone & happy Spring!
Mother’s Day is right around the corner, so I figured I’d put together some gift ideas for you. My mom is hands down one of the most important people in my life and my #1 best friend. I try to celebrate her every day, but Mother’s Day is the perfect time to show your mom just how much you appreciate her. Mom’s have chosen to be selfless since day one when they decided to bring you into the world. And if your mom is anything like mine, she will try to reject any sort of gift you give her, so sometimes you just gotta smother her in love anyway!
- Skin Care – who doesn’t like new makeup? I don’t think I’ve ever met a single person. Some of my favorite makeup essentials that are quick and easy for busy moms on the go are:
- Benefit Cosmetics Puff Off Eye Gel – this stuff is amazing for moisturizing and preventing wrinkles (I use this one every morning myself!)
- Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm – I can also personally vouch for this product because it is so quick and easy to clean your face after a long day. The formula is also very gentle and works on the most sensitive skin types. This has become a holy grail for me.
- Fresh Rose Face Mask – first of all, the smell of this mask is amazing- I could eat it. Secondly, it is so gentle and moisturizing (even on oily skin) and helps balance out the overall coloration of you skin. What mother doesn’t need a nice relaxing face mask at least once a week?
- LUSH Massage Bars & Bath bombs – you already KNOW these are the bomb (literally) If your mom has never tried one of these guys, you serioussssly gotta get her on board.
- Spa Days – going off of the skin care idea, it’s always nice to treat your mom with a gift voucher to her favorite pamper spot.
- Facial gift cards at your local spa
- Mani & Pedi gift cards at your local nail place
- Massage gift cards at your local spa.
- Hair appointment gift cards at her favorite salon that she never goes to anymore because she can’t justify spending that money on herself (mhmmm I’m calling you out on this one mom!)
- Fresh Flowers – I don’t think I’ve ever met a single person who doesn’t enjoy fresh flowers and they’re so easy to get at all price ranges if you’re on a budget!
- Mom & Daughter dates – this is my personal favorite way to spend Mother’s Day with my mom. I love taking the day off and spending every single second with my best friend.
- Movie dates
- At home movie dates
- At home spa dates with chocolate, ice cream, and face masks.
- Take her out to breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
- Home Made Gifts – Let’s be real, it’s never about how much money you spent, but more the thought and intent you put into the gift. Mother’s know you like the back of their hand and know what you can and can’t afford. Home made gifts are often times better than the ones you thought about buying in the first place 🙂
- Hand made cards
- Hand made paper bouquets/flowers
- Hand made coupons – the coupons can say anything you want your mom to have the opportunity to redeem/cash in for the next month. I always find this to be a fun and meaningful gift to receive. (I used this gift idea countless times when I was young.)
