If you haven’t yet gotten a gift for Mom, don’t fret. We’ve got a great roundup of beauty goodies that she’s sure to love, as well as an easy-to-enter contest that could score you a free Mother’s Day gift set.
So get clicking—Sunday’s coming quick!
Let your mom know she’s one of the sweetest things in your life with this pretty gift set from Mor Cosmetics. It contains a mini hand cream and triple-milled soap, both in Mor’s soft and summery floral Italian Blood Orange scent. There’s also a soothing Rosebud lip balm, and everything comes wrapped up in a roomy, stand-up cosmetics case.
I find that hand creams are great go-to gifts for moms, and Jurlique makes some of the best (and most beautifully packaged) moisturizers out there. This trio contains citrus, lavender, and rose-scented hand creams, all of which are super rich but not at all slick or sticky. And the box is so beautiful, there will be no wrapping required!
My mom is constantly complaining about her thinning hair and reminiscing about the days when her locks were long and luscious. Which is why I’m getting her this contouring creme from Bumble and bumble. It’s great for adding definition and volume to short styles (like my mom’s), and while it’s a pomade-like paste, it’s lightweight and absorbs seamlessly into the hair. Mom will be able to create cute finger curls or spiky styles without complaint—and she’ll definitely notice the extra volume.
If you have the means to splurge on Mom this year, Gucci is the way to go. We’re sure she’ll flip for this sheer, “floral-oriental fragrance”, which comes in a glass-and-metal fused bottle bearing the brand’s iconic logo. The set also includes a body lotion perfumed with the same scent, and both items come nestled in a sleek, splurge-worthy black Gucci box.
If your mom is into facial oils, or if you think she might benefit from giving one a try, look no further than The Leaky Collection’s Marula Oil. This anti-aging elixir firms, hydrates and leaves skin with a soft and supple and glow. It’s packed with moisture-rich Omega 9 fatty acids and a ton of skin-saving antioxidants. Plus, if you purchase it now, you’ll also get a pink Multi-Strand Zulugrass bracelet from The Leaky Collection thrown into the mix. Another nice extra for mom (or yourself)!
And remember that cool contest we mentioned? You can win a special Marula Oil Mother’s Day Gift Set just by submitting your most memorable “MOM-ent” (i.e. an amazing picture of your mother) on Marula’s Facebook page. Check out the details here. (Make sure to “Like” Marula so you can see the contest deets.)
You don’t have to spend a lot of cash to show your love. This mini Dr. Feelgood Balm from Benefit is just $9, and it’s such a great, multi-purpose skin smoother and mattifier. Plus, the vintage-inspired tin is terribly cute—and something a mom might like on her vanity.
All moms need makeup mirrors, and Sephora’s got a wide array of brightly colored flat compacts, all in brightly colored, spring-ready shades. Brighten you mother’s purse with one in her favorite color—or get her one of each to add some serious variety to her makeup bag.
