Question: What beauty gifts should I get Mom for Mother’s Day?

Answer: Mother’s day is Sunday, and there’s no better way to show Mom some love than with products that are sure to make her feel pampered and beautiful! If you’re in need of a last minute gift for the loveliest lady in your life, we’ve got you covered.

Lush – Mum’s Goodies

Nothing says relaxation more than a selection of Lush’s soap, bath bombs, and bubble bars. The Mum’s Goodies set includes one of each in fun colors and decadent, glittery textures inspired by Wonder Woman’s tiara. And, for just under twenty five dollars, this is the perfect way to treat your own personal superhero to a little TLC. Plus, all of Lush’s products are vegan, cruelty-free, and emphasize all natural ingredients and minimal packaging- so you’re getting double the good karma!

Urban Decay – Naked 3 Palette

The latest iteration of Urban Decay’s immensely popular Naked palettes—the Naked 3 Palette—lives up to its hype. Featuring twelve eyeshadows in a range of flattering neutrals with blush and rose tones, this set is an ideal gift for the Mom who likes to keep her finger on the pulse of what’s hot in the beauty world. It’s also a great gift for the Mother who might be slightly reluctant to mix up her makeup routine; the colors are subtle enough to be worn on a day-to-day basis, and there are endless possibilities for combination. Did someone say mother-daughter makeover night? Oh, right, I did; and it will be awesome.

Laura Geller – Garden Gift Party Set

Laura Geller’s Garden Party gift set is a fresh, stylish gift for the Mom who loves planting roses as much as she loves a good rose-toned blush. This collection includes products which can be combined to create a natural look inspired by the most beautiful blooms of the season. The included retractable brush is a nice addition to any woman’s makeup bag, too.

Philosophy – Cake Me To Paradise

After dealing with me throughout my teen years, my Mom definitely deserves a cupcake…or a cocktail! This gift set from Philosophy gives Moms both, in the form of their 3-in-one shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath. The packaging of this collection is so cute—and no additional wrapping is necessary, either! Just smack on a bow, smile, and you’re good to go.

Air Repair Skincare – Travel Kit

This travel set of skincare products is the perfect present for the Mom who is constantly on-the-go (and what Mom isn’t?). Intended to keep skin moisturized and glowing even in the driest of airplane interiors, this kit is a thoughtful gift for any Mother. And since summer also means lots of air conditioning and tons of sun, this little set will definitely come in handy.

And finally, for anyone who has waited up until the very last moment to find their gift for Mom, I hereby present you with your lifesaver: the beauty box subscription.

Beauty boxes

Birchbox: With options for 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions, this box delivers a handful of deluxe beauty, skincare, and haircare essentials to Mom’s door. The brands included range from lesser known companies to beauty giants (like Benefit, Dr. Jart+, Frederic Fekkai, and many more). I can personally vouch for this gift—my mother and I always wait to open our Birchboxes together, and then we trade, swap, and play all night.

Julep: You can choose to gift 2, 4, or 6 boxes with this beauty subscription box. Each box includes over $40 worth of nail care and beauty products. This is the ideal present for the Mom who loves her manicures and pedicures, and is always looking for the next fun shade to try!

Conscious Box: This is the ultimate Mother’s Day gift, and great for any Mom who prefers her buys to be all-natural and GMO-free. You can select a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription, but the choices don’t stop there! You also get to choose the size of the box (5-8 or 8-12 products in each box) as well as the theme of the box: vegan, classic, or gluten-free. Each box includes a mix of beauty, home, and food products which fit seamlessly into a healthy lifestyle.

This is where I would usually share what I chose to get for my Mom this Mother’s Day, but she reads all of my articles (hi, Mom!) and I don’t want to ruin the surprise. So instead, I’ll end with this: Happy Mother’s day to all of the wonderful, fabulous Moms out there—and thanks for everything you do.

    Okay, but I will have to get duplicates for myself as well. No harm in that…right?
