Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Spring is here, and so almost is May. This means Mother's day is coming soon. I wanted to put together some solid, great gift choices. The fabulous blog Now Smell This has done several posts on this same subject, all fragrant choices, and I don't want to repeat any of hers. Head to the site to see her great ideas. I will add more here, most beauty oriented, and in all price ranges.

L'Occitane Lavender Hand Duo. Consists of an 8.4 oz hand wash, and 8.4 oz hand lotion. It's hard to go wrong with L'Occitane. They make wonderful things. This set comes in the metal caddy and is something most wouldn't buy for themselves. It is useful and pretty, and I think would not only be nice for any mom, but is especially good for new or fairly new Mothers in Law. You may not know their taste yet, but want ( have to have ) a good gift. This covers all those bases. If for some reason she hates lavender, it will be a fantastic addition to a guest bathroom. Sells for 32.00 at Sephora.com

Kenzo Amour Perfume Set. Beautifully packaged, this fragrance gets raves from lots of ladies who love perfume. 1.7 oz EDP and a body nectar. 65.00 at Nordstrom.com

Philosophy 3in 1 shower/bath gels. These are amazing, and really smell like the real thing. These are a treat for any mom, but I think of new moms especially. I know friends ( the Movie Mommy blogger for one) who were so happy just to shower when they had newborns. It was a feat. They also didn't go out much.

The cocktail flavors of these gels can give them a boost, and make them think of evenings out as well as having a fun shower/bath experience on the run. New moms need love too.

16.00 each at sephora, nordstrom.

I love the first item mentioned. The hand soap and lotion combo. Looks like it would be nice in the bathroom especially with the holder. Mom's have so many knick-knacks already...I think your ideas are smashing! I eagerly await your next post!!!
