Mother’s Day is right around the corner (May 12th) and I’ve got some gift ideas to share with you this year.
Laura Mercier Limited Edition Le Petite Patisserie Eau Gourmande Fragrance Coffret – $45
This is a delectable scent trio from Laura Mercier that I absolutely adore. It comes with 3 scents: Almond Coconut Milk, Vanille, and Fresh Fig. My absolute favorite is Almond Coconut Milk. I LOVE how the scent notes in that one work with my body chemistry. The Vanille is a nice classic vanilla scent, and I like to layer it with the Almond Coconut Milk. I’m not so fond of the Fig on its own, but it’s nice layered with the other two scents. This is really a wonderful treat.
Le Metier de Beaute CHEM60 Pro-Peel and GLOW10ai Mask Set 3 piece – $265
I can’t stop singing praises about this set. If you’re going to splurge on your Mother’s Day Gift, this is what I would recommend splurging on. Read about my experience with the mask here. It always makes my skin look wonderful.
Amazon kindle – Price Varies by Model
Anyone who knows me knows that I always carry my kindle with me in my purse. I started with a kindle 2 and I upgraded to a kindle fire. I think this makes a wonderful gift for anyone, but especially a parent. I bought one for my father last year and I was so excited to be the one to give him this gift because he is the one who gave me the gift of reading books. He loves to read as much as I do and he instilled in me from a young age that reading would take me places. So I was happy to give him something he would use daily. I think this makes it a perfect Mother’s Day gift.
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette – $27
I love this palette. It’s got all the neutral mattes you’ll ever need. I still can’t get over the value of 6 full size eyeshadows for the price. If your mom loves neutrals, you can’t do better than this. You can see my full review and swatches here. You can also see my basics tutorial.
Urban Decay Theodora Palette – $49.00
Now, I’m sure you knew that I would suggest this palette, too. With its workhorse neutrals and fun green shades that are so in this year, it’s for the bold moms out there! Check out my review or my awesome bad witch tutorial.
Pure Natural Diva Botanicals Elixir Perfume – $150
This is a divine scent with notes that include aphrodisiacal vanilla, a hint of oakmoss, exquisite osmanthus, married with rejuvenating pink grapefruit and red mandarin. Somehow, on my skin it ends up smelling a bit like vanilla and marshmallows. I love it. I’ve got a review coming up of this full line but I had to include this scent here, because it’s my favorite from PNDB and I think it would make a wonderful gift.
Kate Spade Mint Earrings – $38
Mint is one of the on trend shades right now and I’m in love with it. These cute earrings by Kate Spade would be a perfect way to wear the trend.
Greenbeads Coral Twisted Bead Necklace – $110
You knew if I was going to mention mint that I’d have to mention coral. Golden hardware. Eight strands each of coral and dark coral beads. Iridescent faceted beads highlight twisted strands at center. I adore this necklace and would love it myself! I think it would be beautiful to wear all Summer long and make a great Mother’s Day gift.
Amazon Gift Cards – You can make this any amount you want
For the mom who has everything, you can always consider a gift card to Amazon. She can spend it on books, music, beauty… anything that Amazon carries.
These are my Mother’s Day Gift Ideas.
What are you getting your mom?
My mom will probably get a Kindle gift card as my brother bought her a Kindle fire for her birthday last year. She also instilled a love of reading in me and since she doesn’t wear perfume or makeup due to allergies, it’s the best option for her. I would love to get the Naked Basics palette, but hubby refuses to buy me makeup, so I’m hoping for an annual pass to the state parks.
Elizabeth Christjansen Yay! It’s great that you share that love of reading.
I love your new button “lusting after”. That would be me. I’m lusting after a Kindle even though I have an iPad but it runs out of battery too fast so I’d like the Kindle for books and the iPad for everything else. I’d love the LMdB mask. That’s worth a lust.
Marcia beauty info zone The Mask is so lust worthy! I’m also lusting after the necklace.
wait a second……other moms actually get gifts? lol
Those Kate Spade earrings are adorable!
Might have to get those for my grandma for mothers day!
Thanks for all the cute ideas!
HellooBeee You’re welcome
Gifts? What is this you are speaking of? I’ll be lucky if they remember. I’ll remember though. Keep reviewing those products so I know what I want to shop for next!
Yep, I know what I’m getting my mothers!
Amy Busby- No kidding! lol And today is my bday too and guess what my family got me? Nada! business as usual here……rotten no good…..
Happy Birthday Tere! I hope your family surprises you with a lovely evening to make up for the ones you didn’t get. They could just be waiting for tonight for the big surprise you are going to get. I’ll keep my fingers crossed
My fingers are crossed too!
What I really want isn’t on here this time. Although I found a lot of new items on your blog that I will add to my list, I want an airbrush kit. I just got my cosmetology license and I want to add that to my services. If you have any recommendations on the best ones I would love to hear them
The Kate Spade earrings are really pretty. I’m going to be treating my mother and father out for dinner.
mousewings I bet they’ll love that
Amy Busby I have a luminess air airbrush kit that I got on Hautelook. It’s hot pink and I do like it, I’m just not very skilled with it.
Thank you. That is the brand I was considering. You just confirmed it for me!

I love everything on your list! I’ve been so tempted to buy those mint earrings for myself (in my defense, my mom doesn’t like stud earrings and my birthday’s this month, lol)! I gave my mom the Naked Basics palette for her birthday this year and she loves it. I might get her the Glinda palette for Mother’s Day. She was looking at mine the other day and actually made the “ooooohhhh” sound – I think we have a winner! :)
