Discover four great Mother’s Day gift ideas from Laura Mercier, Vera Wang, Lisa Hoffman, and Noodle & Boo that moms will love. Unfortunately, mom’s and impending moms don’t receive monetary compensation for the challenging jobs they do of raising another human being, so it’s important that we join forces with the rest of the country once a year and express our heartfelt appreciation as a nation with a thoughtful gift.
Make this Mother’s Day one she’ll never forget by giving mom a gift that even the fabulous Halle Berry wouldn’t mind receiving. Doesn’t she look fantastic?!
Expecting or well into the throws of motherhood, women want to smell good, so consider a more traditional gift of the Laura Mercier La Petite Patisserie Eau Gourmande Fragrance Coffret ($45.00, lauramercier.com) – packed with three limited-edition, purse-sized, gourmande fragrance sprays that can be blended to the receivers desire – Ambre Vanillé, Fresh Fig and Almond Coconut Milk. Another fragrance any mom, especially those who have a zest for life would love to receive is Vera Wang Be Jeweled ($45-$68, kohls.com & Kohls stores only). The bottle reads fun because it sparkles of shades of “Vera’s key fashion embellishments,”purple, pink, and champagne. Top, middle and base notes are comprised of pomegranate, passion fruit & pink sugar crystals.
For something a little different in the way of fragrance gifts, check out the Lisa Hoffman Beauty Japanese Agarwood Necklace ($65, lisahoffmanbeauty.com). The fragrance on this necklace wafts from an unexpected source – the antiqued bronze-plated charm that hangs from the matching 22-inch bead chain. Just make sure the mom you gift this to isn’t allergic to spicy ginger and warm amber fragrances. So beautiful.
And the gift of all gifts for the expectant mom? The over-flowing Noodle & Boo Pregnancy and Newborn Gift Set ($95, noodleandboo.com) is filled with everything she could ever desire before and after giving birth. Just check out what this extraordinary gift set includes…
To whisk away the stresses of the day, she can get some zen time in with the English pear-scented, Love Light Candle.
She’ll love the Essential Care Kit that includes travel-size bottles of Noodle & Boo’s Super Soft Lotion, Extra Gentle Shampoo and Soothing Body Wash.
To calm and soothe stretch marks & relieve dry, itchy skin, Elasticity Oil made of grapeseed oil and Vitamin E is her go-to item.
She can use the Ultimate Ointment to soothe baby’s flaking scalp – also known as cradle cap, diaper rash, cracked & dry skin. It also acts as a moisture repellant “between the skin and sources of irritation, helping to enhance the natural healing process.”
And to bring relief to calloused hands and feet, she could use The Balm made of Organic shea butter and sunflower oil.
