Last Minute Mommy’s Day Presents
You’ve been putting it off for weeks and now you’re “up shit’s creek with out a paddle” (as my own mother likes to say) – you’ve got like a day left to get YOUR mother a gift!
Hey, I’m a procrastinator too but make sure you get your Mom one (or all) of these gifts that inspire relaxation to show her just how much you appreciate the packages that she sends you, the money she gives you for laundry and the extra food she cooks for you to take back to school with you when you visit home for the weekend.
This AETÓ-ette Botanica Hair & Body Spa On-The-Go makes a great gift for the mom who loves to travel. Each bottle is carry-on approved (under 3 oz.) and the kit contains four products that all soothe and nourish to a state of natural bliss.
The AHAVA In the Bag Gift Set is an incredible at-home spa experience that will soothe, smoothe and pamper your mother like she truly deserves (think of all those times you gave her grief). The gift set contains a mineral body lotion, mineral shower gel, dead sea bath crystals, the AHAVA bath mitt, and it even comes in a cute mesh beauty bag with a mirror key chain!
This Japonesque 5-Piece Grooming Kit has all the essentials for the perfect manicure and pedicure. The adorable pink case makes the nail/brow scissors, tweezer, nail clipper and file that much more luxurious PLUS $1.00 is donated to Breast Cancer Research for every pink set sold.
Let your mom have her well-deserved beauty sleep with a Cris Notti Sleep Mask. These masks are padded with 100% natural unbleached cotton and have a pure silk back in super cute designs. They come in every pattern and design from leopard to geisha-print to faux mink – definitely a Mother’s Day essential.
Lastly, take a look at Fragrancenet.com and pick out one of their ultra-calming candles for your Mommy. There’s nothing like the smells of French vanilla, gardenia and lavender to relax and calm the senses.
In honor of my own mother, I’m going to sign off by saying what she still, to this day, says to me at the end of nearly every conversation, “be good, don’t stay up too late and don’t drink and drive.”
