Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 8th. If you’ve yet to select a proper gift, you can never go wrong with flowers, brunch or a pampering spa treatment. But if you’d like to up the ante this year and wow your mom as well as any other extra special women in your life, BITB has got your covered. Choose something personal, practical, pampering or precious.
SOMETHING PERSONAL – My Burberry Eau de Parfum ($125) is crazy beautiful because of its elegant fresh floral scent with lemon and peony notes that echo a spring blossom garden with rain-tipped flowers, but the fact that you can engrave the bottle with up to three characters is what will make her gasp with delight. Choose her initials, engrave MOM or pick whatever feels right for you.
SOMETHING EYE-OPENING – bbrowbar Brow Kit ($45) contains everything your need — tweezers, a tamer, scissors and a mirror — in an easy to tote zip-up kit to keep her brows in perfect shape wherever and whenever.
SOMETHING EXTRAVAGANT: Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Brush Collection ($650) is for the mom who has everything and knows quality when she sees it. This full set of 14 professional quality makeup brushes is as perfect for the makeup pro as it is for the beauty aficionado. The brushes have a rich, deep burgundy handle that’s encased in lucite, all packaged in a sleek black carrying case that doubles as a brush easel.
SOMETHING COZY – RH Ultimate Luxury Plush Foot Duvets ($24) are the perfect present for those who spend way too much time vertically, are constantly in heels or for runners who’s feet take a pounding. These down-filled booties are akin to pillows for your feet — Pair them with a softening foot cream like Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream for pure magic!
SOMETHING EXOTIC – Arquiste Travel Kit ($70) is the perfect way to give your mom the world. This collection of delicate fragrances is inspired by beautiful places and pockets of time.
- Flor y Canto delivers the heat and passion of an Aztec festival in the summer of 1400, featuring intoxicating Mexican Tuberose, Plumeria, and the sacred Marigold.
- Fleur de Louis transports the wearer to the Isle of Pheasants on the French-Spanish border in 1660, where young Louis XIV meets his bride for the first time amid a bouquet of Orange Blossom, Florentine Orris, and Jasmine.
- Infanta en Flor lets you experience the feel of the 17th century Spanish Court. This fragrance features Bright Orange Flower Water, rich Spanish leather and Immortelle.
- Boutonnière No. 7 embodies crisp Gardenia against the scent of Italian Mandarin, Bergamot and French Lavender, all set in the Parisian Opéra-Comique in 1899.
SOMETHING PRACTICAL – Drybar The Tress Press Digital Styling Iron ($150) makes it easy to give your mom the gift of good hair — smooth, shiny and healthy-looking — 365 days a year. It features one-inch titanium plates for constant contact with hair so she’ll just need one pass to straighten and smooth. It also features rounded edges so she can wrap the hair around it to create curls, waves or kicks. The titanium technology helps seal cuticles for a smooth, frizz-free finish from roots to ends.
