12 Luxurious Beauty Gifts to Pamper Your Mom With This Mother's Day
Maybe your mom is the one to thank for your obsession with makeup, or your passion for a solid skin-care regimen was instilled in you by her at an early age. Or, perhaps your mother is so low-maintenance, you're shocked you come from the same household.
Regardless, Mother's Day is fast approaching (May 14, for you procrastinators), and if you need a gift, there are few better ways to pamper your mama than with some sophisticated new beauty products. Ahead, we have the hottest hair tool on the market, the chicest bubble bath you've ever seen, and many more gifts for her that she'll adore almost as much as she loves you.
Jo Loves Fragrance Discovery Gift Experience
Legendary perfumer and founder of the eponymous scent brand Jo Malone has a new venture, and this discovery set is the perfect way to get acquainted with her fresh and unexpected fragrances. Inside the gift box are nine small vials of fragrance along with a voucher that entitles the recipient to a full-size bottle of her favorite. With options like Pomelo (Jo's signature grapefruit-y aroma) and No. 42 The Flower Shop (a concoction of fresh flowers and green leaves), it'll be hard for Mom to choose.
By Terry Baume de Rose Hand Cream
This superluxe hand cream is packed with loads of derivatives of rose — including butter, oil extracts, and essential wax — to result in an impossibly nourishing, impeccably scented formula. It also contains blurring powders, so hands immediately look youthful and flawless after application.
La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Infusion
It's appropriate that this formula looks like it contains real pearls, because it makes your skin look lit from within just like the gem. The pearlescent serum is loaded with antiaging ingredients — including vitamin C and caviar — to banish hyperpigmentation, complexion redness, and dullness for a youthful glow. Even better, it looks like jewelry for Mom's vanity.
Nest Fragrances Petite Reed Diffuser Trio Set
Tucked inside this chic coffret are three Spring-forward scents: Grapefruit, Ocean Mist & Sea Salt, and White Camellia. Whichever room your mother places her favorite diffuser in, she'll feel like she's transported to an airy, elegant beach house!
Dyson Special Edition Supersonic Hair Dryer Set
Anyone who's tried the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer can tell you that it's absolutely worth splurging on (it cuts your blowout time in half!). If you're getting one for your mom, you should get the one that's tucked in a beautiful leather case. The pink box was designed by James Dyson himself and is ideal for travel.
Claus Porto Deco Soap Set
If your mother is into all things vintage, pick up this charming nine-piece soap set and watch her struggle to decide which bar to set out in the guest bathroom first. The packaging is inspired by the brand's wrappers from its original launch in 1898.
Clarins Skin Illusion Blush
One can never have too much blush, especially when it's stashed in such genius, portable packaging. Unscrew the cap to reveal a pan of blush, which sits atop a sponge. Mom can use the top of the lid (a mirror!) to guide her application. Bonus: every time she sees this in her makeup bag, the little hearts on the container will remind her how much you love her.
Dr Dennis Gross SpectraLite Eye Care Pro
If your mom is always looking for the latest and greatest antiaging device, stop your gift search and pick up this mask. It uses 72 LEDs that target skin at different levels (epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis) to iron out wrinkles and firm around the eyes. It only takes three minutes of wear time to see results after a few months. Unlike some devices, which are designed to be tossed after a certain number of uses, this mask can be charged with a micro USB, making it more environmentally friendly and cost effective.
Too Faced Natural Love Eye Shadow Palette
No woman is properly equipped without a shadow palette packed with neutrals, and this one from Too Faced is especially lustworthy. It contains 30 hues, including a mix of shimmers and mattes, cool and warm tones, and bestsellers and all-new colors. Even better, the formulas are cruelty-free!
Rebecca Minkoff x By Rosie Jane All Women Essential Beauty Clutch
Moms who were proud proponents of the second wave of feminism will love this sweet and stylish gift. Inside the darling half-moon Rebecca Minkoff pouch are a By Rosie Jane lip and cheek stain and a small rollerball of fragrance (you get to pick your shade and scent for both!) and a little bit of what the brand calls "inner strength," thanks to the inscription of "feminist." One hundred percent of the proceeds go to I Am That Girl, a nonprofit organization that works to inspire and empower women.
Antica Farmacista Prosecco Bubble Bath
This is by far the swankiest bubble bath we've ever come across, so obviously you should pamper your mama with it. The aroma is inspired by Champagne and features notes of satsuma, apricot, and passionfruit, and the formula itself is housed in a sophisticated flacon reminiscent of a bottle of cognac. When she pours this into her bathwater, be sure she also pours herself a drink (and lights some candles!) to fully maximize the relaxing experience.
Nars Cosmetics Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection Au Poil Brush Roll
Few parts of a woman's beauty routine are more glamorous than applying makeup in front of her vanity, especially when she does so with fabulous brushes like these. Charlotte Gainsbourg personally selected the handles for the tools in this collection, which includes an eye blending brush, a concealer brush, eye shadow brush, highlighter brush, and all-over face brush. They're all kept in a beautiful roll, making it easy to stow the set in a purse or travel bag.
