Show the mom in your life how much you love her with one (or more) of these special treats. No matter what her personality, we’ve got you covered!
Let’s face it: A major concern to bombshell moms is anti-aging, so for her, there may be no better gift than Fiafini Skincare’s Mother’s Day collection. This special gift combination of a Delicate Cleansing Emulsion, vegan Divine Hydration Moisturizer and vegan Deluxe Anti-Aging Eye Cream harnesses the advanced anti-aging benefits of South African Marula beauty oil, while other ingredients naturally protect the skin from environmental and free radical damage, dehydration and irritation. “As a mom, I was dedicated in searching for efficacious, natural skincare that features ingredients both powerful and safe enough to be used by women of all ages and those with sensitive skin,” explains founder Stasia Serafini. Fiafini Mother’s Day gift; $95, available now through Mother’s Day.
THE MANE MAMA
For moms that adore their hair, look no further than Macadamia Natural Oil. Always on our list of must-haves, this range of lightweight and nutrient-rich hair products uses natural macadamia nut and argan seed oils to give hair body and shine. The brand’s new 100% Round Boar Bristle Brushes are perfect for any “mane mama” that loves a good blowout. The ceramic barrel locks in shine and volume during styling; for a sleeker look, after blow drying, moms can give their hair a once over with the Izunami ITC450 flat iron. You can adjust the temperature to control the heat on your strands, and the tourmaline-infused ceramic plates seal in moisture, which helps battle frizz and gives the ultimate shine. Macadamia 100% Round Boar Bristle Brushes; $35-$49
For moms on the move, gifting workout wear and accessories is a given. This year, get your yogi mother a MyYogaLoop ─ these adjustable and colorful straps are an ideal accessory for yoga practice. The loop helps beginners and advanced yogis extend beyond their limitations to get the most out of their session. For fashionista athletes, grab a pair of Blake Brody In-Studio Footwear. The footwear is a chic and hygienic alternative to sticky socks for indoor classes like barre, Pilates and yoga. The flats come in six styles and many different patterns, including our favorite: the leopard print! Blake Brody Footwear; $98-$11
Moms that love to entertain always seem to have it all ─ the best serving trays, every baking item possible ─ but this year, get mom some brand-new table linens for her next gathering. Hen House Linens has a great selection of gorgeous prints and patterns that will liven up any table. Whether you choose to get her a new apron in a funky design, or some beautiful napkins to decorate the spread, hostess moms will truly appreciate anything from Hen House Linens. Prices vary
THE ZEN MOM
For moms that need a timeout, the solution is a SpaFinder Gift Card. Plan a spa day together, or send her off to relax solo; either way, this gift guarantees a day she will remember. Accompany your gift card with treats to make her day of wellness keep on giving. Tocca has just revamped and reformulated its bath and body collection, making it the perfect present for mom. The paraben-free line of body wash and lotion is available in three scents. To further unwind after her relaxing day, give mom a Slatkin & Co. Bloom Collection candle in a spring scent like Green Grass. This refreshing candle will bring her to a warm sunny day, as it blends scents of dewy greens, Meyer lemon and lily-of-the-valley with a touch of jasmine. SpaFinder Gift Cards; prices vary, Tocca; $18-$20, Slatkin & Co.; $19.50
THE MOMMY-TO-BE & THE BRAND NEW MAMAS
Mommies-to-be and brand-new mamas will be so grateful when you gift them with products from Bethenny Frankel Skinnygirl Face & Body Collection. The Mommy line has everything their changing bodies need, from Soothing Body Oil and Cool Your Feet Spray to Energizing Leg Cream and Conditioning Belly Butter to keep the stretch marks at bay. The Skinnygirl Mommy Kit is great token to show a soon-to-be mom or a brand-new mommy you care. The cocktail-inspired set includes a Conditioning Belly Balm Stick, Soothing Body Oil and Shimmer Lip Balm.
For moms on the go, give her a gift she isn’t likely to get herself. CupCase Your Bras is a stylish protective travel and storage case to keep bras from creasing when packed in a suitcase, going to the gym or even getting changed at the spa. The case is also a fabulous way to pack other items such as jewelry, hair ties and medicines that tend to get lost in luggage. The CupCase comes in cute designs like Spot on Leopard, Charming Cheetah and Hot Pink. The case zips open and can store up to three bras. CupCase Your Bras; $24.95
