Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Sunday is the day that we celebrate our mothers. Well, every day we should be celebrating the brave and amazing women that brought us onto this earth, but Sunday is the official day.

So, what token of appreciation have you purchased for your mommy dearest?!?

Here's some beauty products that make purrrfect gifts:

How about mom's favorite skin care products? La Prairie, La Mer, Clinique... these are gifts that she'll actually use! Just sneak into her bathroom and raid the beauty cabinets! And if you still can't figure it out, all mom's love a heavy duty facial moisturizer. Pick up Skyn's Stress Defense Cream with Biospheric Complex. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles while relaxing tension lines and brow furrows. Antioxidants and ferulic acid help protect skin against pollution, ozone, and light damage. Mom's skin will thank-you! Retails for $100.00

A good perfume is always a safe choice. Try any of the alluring scents from Miller Harris, London perfumers. They have floral, citrus, musk, and everything in between! I like the Fleur Oriental - it's strong, bold, and completely intoxicating. Whenever I wear it, I feel like a Parisian woman prancing along the Champs Elysees. A nice, big bottle of 3.4 oz. retails for around 52 pounds, or roughly 104 dollars.

You can never go wrong with a gorgeous, potent candle. Voluspa's Sake Lemon Flower is divine! It comes in the sleek black-laquered tumbler and burns for hours (85 to be exact). And the aura is a combination of sake, italian lemon flower, hawaiian coconut milk, tart pineapple and verbena. Can you think of anything more delicious... well, maybe a quick Island Holiday, but that may be a tad over your budget! Retails for $22.00.

Bath oil from Jo Malone is the gift that keeps on giving... being a mother is a stressful job! A nice, soothing bath is the perfect remedy. I love the Lime Basil & Mandarin scent. The smell is fresh ans zesty and the oil moisturizes the skin. They have about another dozen scents to choose from... 250 ml retails for $60.00

We want to know... what did you buy mom for the big day?!
