Top Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

With Mother’s Day fast approaching (Sunday, May 12th FYI), it’s always a great time to surprise mom with something special! Of course, gifts are more appreciated when thought is involved–but sometimes you just wonder what on earth to get?? Well I have compiled a list of some fresh crave-worthy gift ideas, that are all on a reasonable budget and sure to please! What’s great about buying a bunch of different items is that you can create unique gift bags or baskets while also adding a personal decorative touch. Take a peek below at some of the hottest new Spring items that couldn’t possibly be turned down…

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

1. Infused Sparkling Beverages by Bottle Green

Now that we have been graced with long-deserved patio weather, it is now also the time for delicious refreshments. I came across a unique line of sparkling beverages called bottle green, which are infused with various thirst-quenching spring flavors (i.e. elderflower, pomegranate & elderflower, ginger & lemongrass, acacia blossom, shall I go on?). They are made with the finest natural ingredients (always a plus) and simply hit the spot. Enjoyed on a sunny day and with or without a splash of your mom’s favorite ‘spirits’, they’re stimulating to the taste. She’ll just love these new beverages–they also come in fancy bottles perfect for gift-giving.
2. Moroccanoil Hand Cream {$28}

If you love Moroccanoil (who doesn’t?), you’ll be pleased to know that they have come out with a BODY line. That’s right, you can now practically bathe in its heavenly softness. For a gift idea I think their hand cream is a wonderful start–very reasonably priced for the quality and something your mom will always keep on hand. It’s highly concentrated, weightless, and of course oozing with antioxidant-rich Argan oil and succulent butters. It can also be massaged onto fingertips for additional nail protection!
3. Stila Colour Balm Lipstick {$25}

This new Colour Balm Lipstick by Stila has been hailed for its nourishing properties and high pigment colour. You basically get the best of both worlds–lip balm and lipstick. It leaves a beautiful satin finish and without any drying (which is a major hassle with high pigment lipstick). Select a nice pastel colour for Spring and your mom will appreciate your beauty savvy instincts!
4. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick {$22}

Another fab lipstick by Stila, the ‘Stay All Day’ has the advantage of long-lasting wear for 6 whole hours. It’s color-rich and won’t smudge or transfer–it just stays. It won’t dry out either since its enriched with hydrating ingredients, such as vitamin E and avocado oil. Choose a pretty color and you solved yet another of your mom’s beauty dilemmas, while also keeping her on trend. 🙂

5. Turquoise Cluster Ring by Ananda {$50}

This beautiful ring by Ananda is right on point for summer with its clustered pastel color and silver cable detail. I’m in LOVE with the varying oval stone sizes and dainty feel–a perfect accent accessory for just about any Spring/Summer outfit. There is also an interesting story behind the name. “Ananda” means ‘bliss’ in Buddhism and this line is a product of two traveling yogi lovers. Their inspiration was transformed into delicate pieces that provide color, shine, and the reminder of blissful moments. How much more unique and thoughtful could a gift to mom be? You may also want to invest in this piece for yourself, there is just something so magical about its design.

Buyer’s TIP: I was recently introduced to a hidden gem of a website…literally. It’s called TenGems.com and carries designer pieces (guaranteed authentic) for a fraction of the price. This ring usually retails for $105 and I found it here for $50–which is a complete steal, especially for the quality. Enjoy! 🙂

6. An Emerald Green Polish

I’m recently loving this beautiful green by Ceramic Glaze (a brand new line available only at Shoppers Drug Mart) called ‘Watermelon Cooler’. Emerald green IS the pantone colour of the season and what a great way for mom to add a splash to her wardrobe. It also has a unique matte finish!

7. A Loose Button {Luxe Box} Beauty Membership {$24 per season}

If you have yet to jump on this trend-train…you’re missing out! It’s a seasonal (every 3 months) beauty box service that delivers a fresh selection of various beauty products for a fraction of the price. It allows you to experience the latest beauty trends without the hassle of seeking them out yourself AND you never have to pay the cost of a full product (unless you want to!). Basically you have the freedom of testing new things and its a fun surprise delivered right to your doorstep–or in this case, moms! Each product is high-quality and handpicked by a team of beauty editors who decide what are the must-have seasonal items. It is such a fun idea and will serve as a reminder of your love each time a new box arrives! To give you an idea of what to expect, here is an example of my beauty box for Spring (a special Steven & Chris partnership!) which includes:

  • Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate by Lancôme
  • Chroma Captive Shampoo by Kérastase
  • Shea Butter Hand Cream by L’Occitane
  • Mascara by Pandora’s Makeup Box (full-size)
  • Fragrance by Marni
  • Mini Lip-Balm by B. Kamins
  • Blending Sponge by Loose Button (these are all the rage, by the way)

This concludes my Top Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Spring 2013! And yes this is what my mom is getting…I am having a hard time parting with the ring though, I’m thinking we can share 😉  Would love to know what is on your Mother’s Day list as well!
