Morning readers! I just placed my Mothers Day order on Sephora, which inspired this post. I usually get stuck the night before without a present and then an overwhelming amount of guilt quickly ensues as I embark on a last minute rampage, dropping too much money on things I know my mom doesn’t like to try and ease that guilt. So! instead of going on a mindless scavenger hunt to find the ‘best of the worst’ on the day of, I set an alarm on my phone to get an earlier start. Here are a few of my top picks in case you needed inspiration or wanted to indulge yourself in a few good finds because I know you’ve deserved it 🙂 Happy shopping!
Nails Inc: 45 Second Top Coat ($17 CAD)– this is the fastest nail polish ‘dryer’ that I have ever used! It literally dries my nail polish in less than a minute and does not compromise the texture or colour of it, while depositing a beautiful shine. This comes in a nice size box and feels substantial as a stand alone gift with a card or as an add on.
Burberry Nail Polish ($25 CAD) – I haven’t tried this nail polish but it looks stunning and has good (4/5) reviews. Probably a splurge that some moms wouldn’t make on their own, so it’s a nice surprise that will decorate anyone’s vanity.
Deborah Lippmann: Bed of Roses Nail Polish Set ($42 CAD) – When I checked yesterday this was in stock and out this morning! Hopefully if it comes back, this would be a perfect array of good quality polishes for your mom to indulge in
Elizabeth and James Nirvana White Gift Set ($95 CAD) – This is a beautiful set complete with perfumes (in a full and travel size set) and a mini-dry shampoo, which in my opinion is best in market. The presentation is just as stunning as its contents – the scent is light (also comes in black gift set if you’d prefer a muskier scent) and I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t enjoy it. Also Sephora has a 3x the points on all fragrances right now.
Moroccan Oil Fragrance Originale Collection ($98 CAD) – This is what I snagged for my mom and just noticed that it’s low on stock so if you’re on the fence, grab it before it goes! My mom has curly hair and loves the way this feels so I wanted to give her the same experience in a shampoo, conditioner and body butter. If you know your mom loves something, check to see if they have the same scent or texture in complementing products.
Chole Eau de Parfum ($122)– This perfume comes in an array of sizes and prices so if you think your mom would like this, find one that fits your budget. This has been a long time best seller fragrance on Sephora so it’s likely a safe bet, but make sure you read the notes to indicate whether its the type of fragrance your mom would love.
Cluse La Roche Petite Rose Gold White Marble/Grey Watch ($179) – This watch is my favorite but Cluse watches in general are very classy, delicate and elegant. It’s hard not to buy two of everything for me and my mom when I go shopping on this site.
Spa Gift Card (whatever YOU want!) – still not sure of what to get your mom? A relaxing SPA getaway is a safe bet 🙂
