Mom might be the person we know best, yet most years we still don’t know what to get her for Mother’s Day. I’ve run into this conflict more years than not, so I thought it’d be useful to curate a list of Mother’s Day approved gifts that’ll make her day. There’s something for everyone, especially beauty lovers, on this guide. The list offers options across New York and the US in general.
Getting personal: Jevelo Custom Jewelry
Surprise mom with a thoughtful customized gift this year by engraving any photo from your camera roll on your phone into a necklace. I surprised my mom with two necklaces, one with a quote she would often repeat to me and the other with a photo of us. The quote read “You are stronger than you think”, as a constant reminder of what I’d learned from my mom as a little girl.
Luckily, it’s all really easy to make and you can do it straight from your iPhone or iPad on Jevelo. It allows you to make a fully customized necklace from the type of metal to the type of engrave. Everything is uploaded through your phone and then shipped straight to your doorstep. You can also enter the weekly raffle to win a free necklace on Jevelo’s Facebook page.
Getting beautified: Naturopathica Bio-Energy Lift Serum and Contouring Cream
Beauty is a big one for moms on Mother’s Day. The Naturopathica Healing Arts Center & Spa in New York specializes in a really amazing treatment called the Bio-Energy Lift Facial. It uses a combination of liquid microdermabrasion technology, the ProFacial, with the exclusive Naturopathica Bio-Energy Lift Serum and Bio-Energy Lift Contouring Cream to re-energize and remineralize the skin by replenishing oxygen consumption, while repairing and protecting the skin from free-radical damage. If you’re not in the New York area, then I highly recommend gifting Mom with the two products above. They do wonders for skin. (Spa: 60 minutes, $225)
Defying Aging (New York): Beauty Lift Facial at Guerlain Spa, New York
New Yorkers, rejoice! This Beauty Lift facial is a sure thing for beauty, lifting, and pampering. This past fall the Guerlain Spa in the Towers of the Waldorf Astoria New York launched the revolutionary “Beauty Lift Facial” – an intense stretching program and dynamic muscle facial treatment to target wrinkles and activate microcirculation (think: contouring makeup but for facial muscles). Offering a real and immediate transformation, guests’ complexion gains rediscovered radiance, facial features are smoothed, cheeks are plumped, and the eyebrow bone is natural lifted. “Beauty Lift” can prevent the drooping of facial features, but also restore volume and density to face areas which lack of firmness. Promoting tissue detoxification and activating blood circulation for oxygenated tissue, the skin’s natural glow is restored with instant results.
Keeping it sweet and simple: Fruit Basket or Pink Roses Surprise
Nowadays that you can order pretty much anything online makes this gift a no-brainer. Something like an Edible Arrangements or big bouquet of roses (I like pink!) is a sweet gesture that won’t break your bank or take up too much time. Mom loves you and will appreciate any gesture. 🙂
