As a spin off to Monday’s post on Gifts from Indigo I wanted to share a few more Mother’s Day gifts ideas if you’re still shopping for the special mom in your life. Ah perfume. I don’t know any woman that doesn’t like perfume BUT perfume can be tricky as every woman has their particular taste and the perfume smells different on everyone. Avon Femme is a light, soft and fruity perfume. The base is actually floral (jasmine and magnolia) but it’s surprisingly refreshing. Signoria Eleganza by Salvatore Ferragamo is a luxe romantic and sweet fragrance with base notes of patchouli and white leather. It’s very delicate and feminine but the head notes of grapefruit and pear help brighten it up. Ange ou Demon Le Secret by Givenchy is definitely a sexy fragrance. It’s a heavier fragrance in my opinion but there is a citrus or fruitiness that keeps it from being too intense or overwhelming. Nilang by Lalique is a bright and light fragrance that is very wearable and would be a great choice for summer. If you think perfume is too risky of a Mother’s Day gift, you can’t really go wrong with these pampering presents. Lush always has great gifts sets that come cutely all wrapped up and ready to give. The “Hello Sunshine” gifts comes with the brightside bubble bar (citrus bath bombs) and charity pot (cocoa butter cream). Bonus: with every purchase $5.95 will go towards grassroots charity organizations. My mom likes to travel quite a bit so she appreciates travel sized body mists like the ones from Calgon. This “Sweet Confections Set” contains 4 sweet smelling mists that leave a light scent and are refreshing too! Make Mom say “wow” with this Morniga scented set by The Body Shop. Complete with shower gel, body butter and eau de toilette all in a cute tote bag, this is also a great gift for the jet setting mom. One of my favourite facial products is the MIYU Beauty Essence – a luxurious facial mist with the nutrients of a serum will keep mom hydrated all day long.
There’s so many choices for jewellery out there; here are two unique mother’s day gift ideas that caught my eye. This mother/daughter charm set from Joseph Nogucci is a great way to build an existing charm bracelet. I’ve always loved the idea of charm bracelets as they are easy to personalize and customize. You may already know that I’m a huge fan of Nayme necklaces. I think the idea of a pendant representing the meaning of your name is such a beautiful idea! The one pictured above if for the name “Olivia”.
Of course just spending time with the mom in your life is the most important thing on Mother’s day 🙂 I was sent these great DIY home spa recipes through Sunkist of all people 😉 Give mom a hand massage plus scrub with this Zesty Grapefruit Sugar Scrub; try a refreshing plus soothing mask with this Orange Mask recipe; or how about this Banana Lemon concoction for a foot massage?
No matter what you give or how you express your love I hope you all enjoy Mother’s Day with a mom in your life that you love and if you’re a mom yourself I hope you will be pampered and spoiled 🙂
