Mother's Day Beauty Gift Guide 2015

What do you gift the woman who gave you the gift of life? It’s not an easy feat… This Mother’s Day, treat your mom to something as beautiful as she is. Read on for some gift ideas to make this Mother’s Day the most memorable one yet!


L’Occitane’s Arlesienne Beauty Collection is perfect set for mom. The rose-and-violet-scented collection includes an Eau de Toilette, Beauty Milk, Hand Cream and Shower Cream, all enclosed in a beautiful, watercolored gift box. ($78)


Every mama deserves the gift of pampering. Treat your mom to a spa day or a blowout at the iconic Drybar! Don’t live near a DryBar? Get her this Drybar Bestsellers Trio, which includes the Buttercup Blow Dryer, Detox Dry Shampoo and Hot Toddy Heat Protector Frizz Fighter. (Gift certificate: $40; Trio: $205)


Rituals is a brand that deserves to be more well known that it is. Every product I’ve tried is extremely high quality and smells lovely. Introduce Rituals to your mom with this bath & body set. It features shower foam, body scrub, body cream, shower oil and body perfume that smell like Cherry Blossom and Rice Milk. ($85)


Beauty starts from within. If your mom hasn’t jumped on the juicing/smoothie train yet, give her a NutriBullet. Everyone who tries this heavy-duty juicer is hooked immediately. It breaks down the toughest fruits and veggies, and turns them into delicious, filling, nutritional smoothies. ($89)


This collection of teas by David’s Tea was created specifically to say thank you to moms for all they do. The set features three different tea blends: Mother’s Little Helper (calming peppermint and lemongrass), Vanilla Rose (a fresh mix of vanilla bean, golden raisins and pink rosebuds), and Serenity Now (a soothing blend of lavender, strawberries and peppermint). ($20)


If your mom is anything like mine, she sticks to the drugstore when it comes to lipstick. “Why would I pay $30 for a lipstick when Revlon does the job?!” That’s a very practical and smart mentality, and there are some great drugstore buys, but everyone deserves a splurge every now and then. Treat your mom to a luxurious lipstick, like YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture in Le Rouge. This classic lippie is a gorgeous blood red that flatters most skin tones, goes on like a dream and makes anyone feel like an Old Hollywood movie star. ($36)


Subscription boxes have surged in popularity over the past year or two. (You can read our Why Ipsy Rocks post, here.) Whether your moms a makeup lover (go with Ipsy) or a skincare aficionado (Birchbox is the way to go), treat her to a year’s subscription to one of the adored beauty boxes. Every month, she’ll receive an assortment of pretty products based on her preferences – it’s the gift that keeps on giving!

Another beauty box worth signing mom up for is the ultra luxurious MonthlyExpress, which features bath, body and home products. They have a special Mother’s Day variety available right now. If you send them a photo of you and your mom when you sign her up, her first box will include the picture in a beautiful frame. How great is that? ($110 for the year for Ipsy/Birchbox; $129, per month, for MonthlyExpress)

GUERLAIN Meteorites

People often say that some beauty products are too pretty to use. I think Guerlain’s Meteorites Powder makes a strong case for the validity of that saying. Picture your mom adding this gorgeous powder to her vanity, front and center. It’s just beautiful. If she does want to actually put it to use, it’s a pretty fantastic product in and of itself. One sweep across your face will illuminate and brighten your complexion for a gorgeous glow that will last all day. ($62)


GlamGlow is pricey, but it’s oh-so-worth-it. Every product from this line is a winner – from Mud Mask to the THIRSTYCLEANSE Daily Cleanser. Your skin will, literally, glow after you use one of their masks. They’ve released a set of three of their bestselling mud masks just in time for Mother’s Day. It includes a full-size jar of YOUTHMUD, plus two mini-masks, for the price of one standard jar – you’re essentially getting the two mini-masks for free! ($69)
