Happy Mother’s Day

Wishing all Mom’s out there a wonderful Mother’s Day.



Beauty Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

I don’t know about you, but 2013 is simply flying by.  All of a sudden it’s May and Mother’s Day is this Sunday.  As a mother myself, I personally love the handmade cards and crafts my children make in school for Mother’s Day gifts.  I know they put so much love into those crafts and they are so proud of them.  Looking back on my childhood, I’m sure I did the same thing.  But once I got older, I really enjoyed buying gifts for my Mom.  There was something about getting Mom that perfect gift (on my very small babysitting income).  And with 4 children, my Mom did so much for us.  Keeping up with our school work, afternoon activities, volunteering for various kid teams and organizations and ALL that driving!  In my eyes, she was truly Superwoman.

This picture says it all.  My Mom feeding two children and reading the newspaper.  I'm in the highchair.

For everything that Mom does for us, the least we can do is take the time to thank them one day a year.  A Mother’s Day gift doesn’t have to break the bank.  My brothers and I used to chip in and buy one gift.  After all, it truly is the thought that counts.  Here are some beauty gift ideas to pamper your Mom this Mother’s Day.

For the traditionalist – A gift set of Mom’s favorite fragrance

For the DIYer – Put together a bath set of bubbles, bath gel, lotion and a cooling eye gel mask wrapped up in a pretty basket.

For the adventurous – Subscribe Mom to a beauty box subscription so she can try out new beauty products all year long.  For reviews on beauty boxes visit Must Have Boxes.

For ultimate pampering – You can never go wrong with a gift certificate for beauty services such as:

  • Manicure/pedicure and include a new nail polish or hand cream with the card

  • Facial or massage – check out your local beauty school for deeply discounted services

  • A professional blowout at salons like Dry Bar

So spoil Mom this Sunday, let her sleep in, give her some time to kick her feet up and (most importantly) love on her!
