Mother's Day will be here before you know it. If you've been fretting over what to get the woman who you literally owe your life to, you're in luck. There are tons of options out there for mom, from a day at the spa to a weekend getaway for the two of you. Here are the best ideas to consider before May 12.
Spa at home
A great gift idea for mom this Mother's Day is to purchase an array of bathtime goodies that she can use to relax at home. Allure magazine suggests picking up a nice basket and filling it with everything from soothing bath oils and candles to face scrubs and facial masks.
Purchasing items like the Elemis Spa At Home Lime and Ginger Salt Glow and the Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask are both great options to consider. The salt scrub exfoliates and reenergizes the skin, while the mask helps soothe the complexion, while enhancing the face.
Sass up her style
It's no secret that you're likely a tad more stylish than your mom, so picking up a few trendy items for her to wear could also be a nice gesture, according to Real Simple magazine. Since emerald green is the color of the year, selecting some clothing pieces or accessories in this color scheme might be perfect.
The experts at the publication recommend starting simple - opting for a chunky green and gold bangle or even a green scarf that mom can wear to accentuate a number of different outfits.
Offering to give your mom a makeover with new beauty products might also be a fun way to help her feel good about herself, while enjoying one another's company. Beauty professionals at Allure recommend purchasing an all purpose makeup palette that you can easily teach your mom to use.
Gifting mom with a tool like the Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 30 Brush Sunscreen might be a suitable option. This product not only helps brighten up the cheeks, it also contains some SPF so mom can avoid the harmful effects of the sun's rays while looking glamorous. Treating her to sassy Bliss products like Bliss Fabulips Glossy Lip Balm - Vanilla Mint might also help her feel like a star on Mother's Day and all days in between.
