Have you ever noticed how mom will spend on something really special for you, like those sneakers you’ve been eyeing, but when it comes to buying herself an upscale candle or luxurious skincare products she doesn’t treat herself? Mother’s Day is a great time to gift her those beauty and skincare products that she really wants but doesn’t treat herself to. Before I was a mom I thought it odd that I might want to give my mom a gift of something that she could buy for herself (but doesn’t). Now that I’m older, I understand. The kids always came first.
It’s time to show Mom that she’s the most beautiful woman in your life. Here are a few OTHER reasons to give her the gift of beauty and more…
- It’s a thoughtful gift that shows you care about her appearance. Moms often put their own needs last, so a gift that shows you appreciate her appearance can be a real treat.
- It can help her feel more confident and beautiful. A new beauty product can give your mom a confidence boost, which can be especially helpful after a long day of taking care of the family.
- It can be a fun and relaxing experience. Taking the time to light a candle, wrap herself in silk and take care of herself is something she deserves.
Here are a few things that I’ve found that Mom would love. Why not pick up a few and put them together in a basket this Mother’s Day?
The scent of Conrad New York Downtown
Yes, the Conrad has always been her favorite hotel, and while she might be home with the family this Mother’s Day, she can recreate the scent of her favorite getaway with this recently launched partnership with The Candle Garden, a soy candle company based in Atlantic Beach, Florida, to bring a small piece of the hotel home following her visit. The collaboration allows guests and non-guests alike the opportunity to turn their home into a luxury hotel or spa retreat, as the property has turned its signature scent “Inspire” into a lavish candle that can freshen up her home or remind her of her unforgettable stay.
With a burn time of over 40 hours, this 100% natural soy wax candle features an energizing blend of bergamot and white tea that boasts a distinguished combination of violet floralcy, aromatic thyme, and amber.
- Available for purchase at the hotel or from The Candle Garden
The Makeup Bullet
With a WARNING!!! on the back of the package that her other makeup tools will be jealous when she transforms her finger into the perfect user-friendly cosmetics applicator, blender & smudger, the Makeup Bullet by Emmy award-winning makeup artist Eva Jane will make you wonder how you ever got along without it.
- Available from Eva Jane’s website Eva Jane Beauty
