May 10th is Mother's Day and I know a lot of you are wondering what to give to the woman who means the world to you. I would love to hear your uplifting and beautiful thoughts about the mom in your life. Finish this sentence: "My Mom Is _______________."
Whether she be your birth mother, or a woman in your life who has acted as a mother figure to you, she is someone special. So I am sure you want to give her the very best that you can to show how much you appreciate her and how grateful you are for her being in your life.
My momma is a little hard to shop for (Love you Mommy!), so I have been wracking my brains as to what I should get her. While I have been browsing around, I thought maybe you, my readers, might enjoy some ideas for the mom in your life.
I have to hand it to Beautycounter, as a lot of my ideas come from this incredible, safer beauty brand. I have a few suggestions that aren't from Beautycounter, but I love that they have so many options for every woman in your life. Plus, if this will be your first time purchasing, simply sign up for their emails here, and get a coupon for 20% off your first order (hurry! This ends on Thursday!) Full disclosure here is that I am a Beautycounter consultant and I am proud to partner with a company whose entire mission is to get safer products into the hands of every person.
Please pay close attention to the shipping deadlines for Beautycounter to ensure that you get your Mother's Day gift in time. For standard shipping, you must order by 1PM EST/10AM PST on May 1st.
For the better beauty addict:
The Glow-Getters Trio. I am obsessed with this because it contains all the products you need for glowing, radiant skin. During the warmer months, I find myself and others not wearing nearly as much face makeup, but we do love that glow, on the outside and in! In the trio, you will receive the Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel; Instant Glow Illuminating Cream; the Illuminating Cream Highlighter in Rose Glow. Glow up, sister friends.
Lip Conditioner Set: If you know a chapstick junkie and you would like them to have a product that conditions their lips but is also safer for them, I think this duo would be a great option for them. In this set, you will receive the Calendula Balm (which soothes chapped lips) and the Peppermint Balm for a refreshing, cooling effect. And the price point is pretty good at $40 retail!
Welcome Baby Gift Set: I know so many expectant mamas right now, and I think this would be such a sweet gift for mama as she prepares for the arrival of her little one. It comes ready to wrap with the following products: Gentle All Over Wash, a tear-free hair and body cleanser; Soothing Oil, a quick absorbing skin nourisher; and Daily Protective Balm, which acts as a protections for sensitive skin. And grab the Lemongrass Body Set for mama as well. She needs a little nourishing on her skin after carrying and caring for her precious bundle.
Facial Massages: I fully believe in creating a spa in your own home. Mamas need it, and I am sure the mama in your life needs it as well. Plus, there are so many amazing rollers out there an so many amazing companies, it won't be too hard for you to find the perfect one for her. May I suggest my favorite company, Primally Pure, and their facial rollers? I have the Gua Sha stone and it is heavenly. I am eyeing the Rose quartz Gemstone ridged roller next!
Send her Flowers: I am obsessed with @farmgirlflowers on Instagram. I have been known to spend some time scrolling through her gorgeous feed and just eyeing all of the pretty bouquets she puts together. If your mom is as in love with beautiful petals, and you think they would brighten her day and life, I highly recommend having some sent to her! Check out FarmGirl Flowers shop and just be in awe. Heck, maybe send some to yourself if they would lift your spirits!
Facial Oil Addict on the Go: I do. So does my mom. She has sensitive skin, but that doesn't stop her from trying things! Ha! Grab this cute Glow & Go Mini Oils set. In this set, she will receive the best selling oils from the Counter+ line: No.1 Brightening Facial Oil; No. 2 Plumping Facial Oil; and the No. 3 Balancing Facial Oil. Plus, they are perfect for travel, so if she is a woman on the go, this would be PERFECT for her.
For the Perfect Pout: Everyone enjoys a good neutral lip color. The Rosewood Lip Trio would be a great option for her. In this set, she will receive a LipGloss, Sheer Lipstick, and the Color Intense Lipstick in the shade Rosewood.
For the Woman who believes in shopping for good: I know a lot of us are looking for ways to not only stimulate the economy, but make it be for good. I absolutely support the idea behind ethical fashion. Some of my favorite brands like Noonday Collection, Sseeko Designs whose mission is to empower women in vulnerable communities with sustainable income. It is a win for many: your mom gets a beautiful, hand crafted high quality product, and a woman gets paid for her hard work. Go check out their Spring and Summer Collections today!
That's all I have so far, folks. Enjoy, and share with me what you got for your mama!
