It doesn’t matter how well you know your mother: when Mother’s Day rolls around, there’s still the pressure to find that perfect gift. Not only should it be something that she doesn’t already own (of course!), but it should be an adequate token of your appreciation. The goal is to make her feel even a fraction of how special she’s made you feel all these years.
We fully believe that the best way to do this is to seek out gorgeous gifts — ones that she might not necessarily splurge on for herself. From serums and body oils that will reveal her softest skin yet to an Yves Saint Laurent® clutch with three lipsticks tucked inside (for less than $100!), keep reading for 10 luxurious presents that are perfect for mom.
This gilded collection from Guerlain® is centered around the orchid, a flower known for its longevity. The Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale® Discovery Set($200) features four skincare essentials — The Essence-In-LotionTM, Eye and Lip Contour Cream, Longevity Concentrate Serum, and (our favorite) The CreamTM — formulated to target signs of aging and boost hydration for restoring that youthful glow.
Organic grape water, patented viniferine (a derivative of grapeseed sap), and glycolic acid are the power ingredients behind the Caudalie® Vinoperfect Radiance Serum Set($79). It contains a three-step regimen for moisturizing, brightening, and exfoliating skin for a seriously luminous complexion. If mom only has a few seconds to pamper herself, tell her to try the mask — it leaves you glowing in 10 minutes or less.
Give new meaning to Self-Care Sunday with the Fresh® Beauty A Rosy OutlookTM Set($64). It includes the brand’s Rose DeepTM Hydration Facial Toner, Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream (so moisturizing!), Rose Face Mask, and Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment with SPF 15 for rejuvenating the face and lips after a long week.
L’Occitane en Provence® Almond Body Care Trio ($146) is perfect for the mama who loves her time in the tub. The set is made up of the brand’s Almond Shower Oil, Almond Milk Concentrate, and Almond Supple Skin Oil for the ultimate soak session. Not only will she fall in love with the subtly-sweet almond scent, but her skin will feel smooth for days to come.
If your mom has been using the same old hair dryer for years, it’s time you surprised her with a new set of tools. She’ll be delighted by the Dyson Supersonic® Mother’s Day Gift Set ($399), starring the celebrated Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer (hailed for its ability to quietly and quickly deliver a salon-worthy blowout). She’ll also receive a comb, brush, different dryer nozzles, and more to transform her into her own celebrity stylist.
Show her strands some extra TLC with the Rahua® Detox and Renewal Treatment Set($98), which was developed to help remove pore-clogging buildup from products for a healthier scalp and hair follicles. It also has nourishing ingredients, such as vitamins A and C, essential fatty acids, and carotenoids to help fight against future damage.
We wouldn’t be surprised if your mom squealed with delight upon receiving the Yves Saint Laurent® Beaute Rouge Pur CoutureTM Lipstick Vanity Trio($78). It includes the perfect lineup of shades — from nude to coral to deep red — for adding a pop of color before she heads out the door. Bonus: the patent pink pouch doubles as a fun clutch to bring on a brunch date with her girlfriends.
Take the guesswork out of getting ready with the playful Trish McEvoy® Cheetah-Print Makeup Planner® ($250). It has everything she needs — from blush and eyeshadows to lip balms and mascara — to create the perfect look every time. It also makes an excellent travel kit for a mom on-the-go.
Diptyque’s® recent collaboration with textile designer Pierre Frey is a sensorial dream. Gift the aesthetic-loving mom the Diptyque x Pierre Frey® Tubereuse and Santal Scented Candle Set($130). This complex, delectable fragrance combination is nestled inside a chicly-patterned box that’s bound to make her say oui oui!
This limited-edition Clé de Peau Beauté® The Ultimate Serum Set($330) includes a curated sampling of some of the brand’s most beloved anti-aging products, including La Serum, Softening Cleansing Foam, Protective Fortifying Emulsion, Intensive Fortifying Emulsion, and La Crème. The pearlescent box is a beauty in itself, so you don’t need to worry about fussing with wrapping paper.
