Last minute Mother’s Day gifts that you’d rather keep for yourself

09 May 2014

Today I have a couple of Mother’s Day gift ideas that you will probably want to keep for yourself, because they’re that nice! 😀 I’m just kidding of course. But if you’re still looking for a nice gift, for your mom (or somebody who is like a mother to you), maybe this will help you. These are things that are LOVELY and make great gifts, but don’t get a lot of buzz in my opinion. I made sure to select things that are available online, but also in stores in the US, as well as overseas in Europe. Click on the name for product details.

Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Cologne (30ml) $60

Jo Malone Peony Blush Suede Cologne Mothers Day

The essence of charm. Peonies in voluptuous bloom, exquisitely fragile. Flirtatious with the juicy bite of red apple and the opulence of jasmine, rose and gillyflower. Mingling with the sensuality of soft, blush suede. Luxurious and seductive.

One of my girlfriends has this scent and every time I see her, I feel like giving her a long hug! LOL It smells so good! It’s flower based, but still very fresh and modern. I’m bad at describing scents, so you just have to trust me on this one. 😉

Sabon Vanilla Body Oil (100ml) $20

Sabon Vanilla Body Oil

​Ours is a delicate sweet almond-based formula that instantly vanishes into the skin, sealing in moisture. With notes of delectable essential oils, our Body Oil makes a wonderful fragrance and body lotion in one, lending a radiant glow to the skin.

And speaking of nice fragrances: this Vanilla Body Oil by Sabon makes you smell delicious! It’s a nice oil that gets absorbed really fast and leaves your skin moisturized but not sticky. I have it myself and I love it. I look forward to ‘slapping’ this on me every morning!

Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector (30ml) $35

Kiehls Micro Blur Skin Perfector Mothers Day

Lightweight skin smoother visibly transforms skin in seconds and over time. Instantly diminishes the appearance of pores and refines skin texture. Provides long-lasting pore and texture correction.

And last but not least: a product I’m DYING to try! This is supposed to be the best ‘blurring’ product (primer that makes the pores on your face appear smaller) out there right now. I believe it’s new. Any of you every tried it yet?

To all you moms, I wish you a happy Mother’s day! 🙂
