Hey Guys !
Mothers Day is just around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to start looking for that special gift for all the special women in our lives, starting with our Mom’s but also all the women who’ve mattered along the way such as Grandmothers, Aunts and our Mother in Laws! I think Moms are the true super heroes in this day and age : juggling work, kids, the house, the husband while still looking good! haha!
So you don’t want to offer the default boring gift : flowers ?
Need a little inspiration ? Here are 10 great Mother’s Day gift ideas, for every budget, for the different types of Moms out there.
- The Tech Mom : Logitech Everywhere Mouse
Mom’s are super busy and always on the go. For the geeky Mom out there a Logitech Everywhere Mouse is the perfect gift to make the hectic day move along a little more smoothly. “It works where ever you do”; that’s so true! I own one myself and have never looked for another mouse since. It works on any surface, including glass. It’s wireless, small and highly portable while still being very comfortable. It has a tiny USB receiver that can connect up to 6 different wireless devices. It also boasts hyper fast scrolling. At 35$ it’s a bargain! Your Mom will thank you.
2. The classic Mom: Perfume Chanel N°5
A timeless Mother’s Day gift will always be a fragrance to me. If you already know your Mom’s favorite scent, then of course go out and purchase it. If not, you can’t go wrong with the classic Chanel n°5 that’s been a top seller ever since it was first created back in 1920’s. It’s the ultimate femininity that lets you feel both chic and seductive.
3. The Beauty Lover : Bobbi Brown Neutral eye palette
Ever since the Naked palettes from Urban Decay have come out, the neutral eye shadow trend has been all the rage (you can check out my reviews here). If you want to achieve the same trendy look but with a slightly more mature feel, the Bobbi Brown Neutral eye palettes are the way to go. Every season they come out with limited editions such as the one featured above the : Nectar and Nude eye palette. The current Nude on Nude eye palette brings the same creamy and chic shades. Both palettes come with a brow bone high light, two lid shades a shimmery and glittery one, two matte transition/crease shades and a dark brown liner shade.
The palette comes with a decent sized mirror and a double ended brush, that contrary to a lot of palette brushes, is actually good quality and very usable. The packaging is sleek and compact making it the perfect travel companion.
4. The Skin care obsessed Mom : Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv, Ultimate Lift-Age Correcting Creme
For the skin care obsessed Mom, Estee Lauder has a wonderful skin care line catering to battling signs of age and improving the over all look and feel of the skin. For a unique luxe experience try out the Re-Nutriv range, perfect mix of high end and tech with 25 patents in this jar! This helps boot the skin’s collagen for younger, firmer and redensified skin. I love the subtle fragrance and the silky smooth feeling on the skin. At $285 or 237,95€ it comes with a hefty price tag, but the results are worth it (cheaper and a lot less painful than plastic surgery).
5. The Bookworm Mom : Kindle Paper White
If you’ve read my 3 Day Quote Challenge on Travel , then you know I love reading but you might not know I got my love of books from my Mom. She always has a book with her wherever she goes, but is always complaining about lugging around the extra weight. The Kindle Paper white already raved about in my October 2015 Favorites is the perfect present for this situation. It’s lighter than a paperback and can hold thousands of books! With its built in adjustable light you can read day or night and enjoy a glare free experience unlike with a traditional tablet. It’s a no brainer : go get it!
6. The chef : pretty measuring spoons
This gift is for the Chef Moms out there that just rule in the kitchen and love it. It’ll help spruce up their accessories and even become part of the kitchen decor. How ever, be sure the Mom you’re giving this to truly loves cooking and won’t take this as a thinly disguised hint …! 😉
7. The fashionista Mom : the perfect SLG = the Louis Vuitton Caissa Card holder
If your Mom is a fashionista then the SLG is the way to go. One thing is for sure you can never have too many ! My recommendation would be to go for the biggest handbag designer in the world: yes I’m talking Louis Vuitton ! One of their newer designs : the Caissa line came out pretty recently and chances are your Mom does not yet own a piece of it yet. It’s a fun twist on the classic OG Damier Ebene canvas. The Caissa card holder is a wonderful SLG with it’s cute front pleat and fun pop of red. It will give her the feeling of being cherished and in style without breaking the bank (for a designer brand) at $235 or 160€.
8. The hair aficionado Mom : Kerastase hair mask
If your Mom loves hair care products and wants to keep perfect locks, look no further than the Kerastase line. I particularly love their hair masks. The scent is gorgeous almost wish they made a fragrance, the texture is silky smooth but most importantly it works! The Kerastase Masque Reconstructeur Résistance Force Architecte is the perfect lightweight conditioner that won’t weigh down fine hair while detangling them and reconstructing the hair fiber from within. At $62,50 or 28.95€ this salon favorite will help you achieve the perfect hair style while repairing and soothing damaged and brittle hair.
9. The time focused Mom : Michael Kors watch : Jet Set Tortoise Shell Ladies Watch
What Mom doesn’t need to keep track of the one thing we are all running after : time! This chic and sophisticated watch will help her do this in style. The Tortoise shell wrist band makes it very light weight and comfortable to wear. I love how the gold pops against the brown mother of pearl dial. Swarovski crystals index the hours and add a little bling. What Mom doesn’t like a little bling ? If you think your Mom won’t like the Totoise shell style there are many MK watches to choose from. It retails for $225 but you can get great deals on Amazon and elsewhere for half the price! Here’s an example of how I would style mine :
10. The home body Mom : Scented candle
If you’ve been to Paris or read my In Paris for the Holidays post, then you know one of the places I recommended was the Ladurée tea parlor on the Champs Elysées. If your Mom is into home decor, than a sweetly macaroon scented Ladurée Candle in baby blue is just the right touch of whimsical and nostalgic. I you manage to bring her a couple macaroons along with it, I don’t think it would be amiss!
