Mother’s Day Gifts You Can Order Today

8 May

Well hello! It’s been a minute. My apologies. The days (ok, weeks) have gotten away from me. But, as I’m sure someone still says: Better late than never.  So just in time for you last minute shoppers, here are a few fun suggestions for Mom’s big day.

2018 MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 11.56.09 PMLUXE SKINCARE: Send an at-home version of Kate Somerville’s celebrated Melrose Place clinic. Advanced age-defying formulas and curated kits for every skin-type are available, but I recommend the special Every Day Warrior box for Mom. It features Kate’s coveted Wrinkle Warrior 2-in-1 Moisturizer+Serum, Eye Gel, NEW Cold Cream Cleanser+Makeup Remover, and exclusive wash cloth—all wrapped in a beautiful blue box.

 

ACCESSORIES @ POTTERY BARN:

Beautiful pastels lined in ultra-suede with special compartments, so delicate pieces don’t get tangled. My personal favorite is the McKenna Jewelry Binder. Perfect for the woman who travels often.

Any woman who knows the frustration of putting on makeup only to get outside and see a clown in the mirror, will fall in love with this ultra-luxe beauty tool. It’s a special must-have for Mom’s vanity. It mimics natural sunlight, and even has a motion sensor that turns on when she approaches.  It’s also got different magnifications—optimal for tweezing and using liquid liner.

 

NEW MAKEUP:

There are so many great formulas out right now, so pick out one that she might not have tried yet. I fall for every collection Pat McGrath touches. So when she finally launched her own line in Sephora, I was all over it. And it doesn’t disappoint. There are so many rich wearable shades–Modern Woman MatteTrance Lipstick is my latest go-to cool mauve.

If Mom prefers an all-natural formula, check out the latest from Tarte Cosmetics. Their Color Splash Lipstick from the Rainforest of the Sea Collection wears really well. Griege, Salt Lyfe, Set Sail... So many moisturizing satin, full coverage options. All in beautiful sea-blue swirled tubes.

 

 

HER PERFECT PAIR:

Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 10.04.59 AMWhen your feet feel good, you feel good. Who knows this better than Mom? Send her the ultimate gift card: customized shoes. From narrow to extra-wide, sizes 2-15, Shoes of Prey will create the shoe of her fashion dreams. Sneakers, boots, strappy stilettos—she can choose her fabric, lining, color, heel, everything. Or she can opt for a pre-designed style. Whatever she creates will arrive at her door in less than two weeks.

BONUS: Designing her custom shoe is a fun project you can do together. 

 

TIME FOR HERSELF:

Screen Shot 2018-05-08 at 10.39.51 AMI always love a gift card to a local day spa. It might not feel that creative, but she’ll thank you after an afternoon of self-care. If she doesn’t appreciate a massage, remind her about facials, scrubs, relaxing tea, blow outs, manicures, et al. Most good day spas have a laundry list of services.

I’ll go into more detail in another post about the Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary in California, but if Mom happens to be around the Sonoma area, I highly recommend treating her to a day here.

    Great options! I’d buy the tarte lipstick by it’s cover. So pretty. And yes to that Osmosis Spa! You don’t see that place coming, but you don’t forget it after you have.
