Mother’s Day Beauty
Ice Cream For Days
Mother’s Day is around the corner and it holds a particularly special place in my heart these days.
Now that I have two boys, I can actually wrap my brain around the sacrifice and work that goes into raising children. And I’m so grateful for my mom (and dad!) for giving me and my siblings a happy childhood.
I consult my mom for parenting advice and decorating tips, and she’s usually the first person I call to just chat when I have a free minute. She spent a great deal of time with me when I had David, and again when I had Luke.
And despite knowing her really well, she’s basically impossible to buy for.
I know what she likes and all that, but I still have a hard time picking out gifts for her!
This year, however, I’m not going to overthink it and just look for something that she may not necessary buy for herself but I know she’ll like.
Browsing the beauty section, which is a rare gift in and of itself these days, at Nordstrom is the perfect idea spark for me. I love looking through all the gift sets set up at the end of the aisles. And usually I have to fight looking for things for myself when I’m wandering through the beauty section.
When Luke was really little, Nordstrom was my favorite place to go to get away because they have a really nice nursing lounge, AND I was able to get my beauty fix in while I walked around.
This year, I’m looking at small fragrances and bath & body products for her. She has a few favorite fragrances that she rotates, but it’s always fun to get a new one I think.
As a big Philosphy fan myself, I know that I can’t go wrong with anything from Philosophy as a gift. And the Hands of Hope (small container is only $9.00!) is the perfect thing to throw in her purse.
Buying makeup for someone else can be a risky move, but a highlighter is one of those things that would be hard to go wrong with. The pink color of the Aerin Beauty Pretty Bronze Illuminating Powder is stunning, and would look good on nearly any skin color!
And if all else fails, a nice, rich lip balm is a no-brainer.
Thanks to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.
