Relaxing gifts for mom

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Get mom some products she can use to relax in the tub.Mother’s Day is this weekend, and plenty of you probably still have to find something to give to the woman who gave you life. Shopping for mom can be tough, especially when it feels like she already has everything. But instead of flowers, why not get mom something that she can really use this year?

She might not want to admit it, but your mom is stressed. Between worrying about you and your siblings, taking care of your dad and finding time to walk the dog or feed the cat, she might feel like she almost never gets a moment to herself. This mother’s day, give her a gift that’s all hers – bath products that will help her de-stress and achieve peace of mind, even if only for a short while.

Start off with a nice scrub that will help mom get rid of the remnants of the day – literally. Look for scrubs made with natural ingredients – especially sugar scrubs, which are extra-moisturizing and smell oh-so-sweet in the shower or the tub.

After exfoliating, Mom will certainly appreciate a calming moisturizer this Mother’s Day. Made with natural oils and floral scents, nothing captures the feel of spring better than soft skin that smells of roses and jasmine. Look for a lotion with lavender for something that’s sure to give mom a relaxing break from her daily routine.

A winter beauty kit makes a great gift for her

A winter beauty kit makes a great gift for herFinding the perfect present for a loved one can sometimes leave you scratching your head until the very last minute. If you still need a gift for your mom, sister or best friend, why not put together a winter beauty survival kit?

Assembling this set is relatively easy, as long as you know which products are necessary. Cold, harsh winds can wreak havoc on skin, so pick up uber-hydrating lotions, such as L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream and L'Occitane 24 Hours Ultra Rich Face Cream. Don't forget the lips either. Jane Iredale Lip Drink SPF15 will condition lips and protect against sun damage.

Because skin tends to be paler in the wintertime, select a few cosmetics to add color to your complexion. A sheer bronzer will infuse your face with warmth and will appear natural-looking whether you're in front of the fire place or outside walking in a winter wonderland.

Red lipstick is a quick and easy way to brighten your face, but make sure to choose a creamy, moisturizing formula, such as Jane Iredale PureMoist LipColour SPF 18.

Package these items in a makeup bag, and you've just created the perfect holiday gift!
