7 Great Mother’s Day Gifts to Give (or Receive!)

Prescriptives’ Everything Eyes Seticon ($26.50) contains full-sized False Eyelashes Plush Mascara in Plush Black, travel-size Lash Builder Mascara Basecoat, Quick Remover for Eye Makeup, and Softlining Pencil in Cocoa neatly fit into a summery yellow zip-top bag. This set is valued at $49.50, and with the economy as it is, sometimes we have to scale back our expenses, even when it comes to gifts. I like to save some money by looking for gift sets, which are often better value than buying products individually. You get a super black mascara, mini lash primer, plus Prescriptives’ eye makeup remover. Travel-size isn’t actually a bad way to go — you can take all these on the plane with you, too!

Prescriptives’ Real Results Seticon ($65.00) contains a full-size Intensive Rebuilding Eye Cream, travel-size Intensive Rebuilding Moisturizer, and travel-size Instant Gratification Skin Renewal Peel. If you’ve got a little more cash stashed away for Mom this year, this is a great treat for her face. I absolutely ADORE Instant Gratification–it’s one of my all-time favorite Prescriptives’ products. It feels heavenly. I kind of want this set just so I can have a travel-sized version of it!

Shiseido The Skincare Moisturizing 1-2-3 Seticon ($38.50) highlights some of the best from the Shiseido line. Shiseido is known for their skincare, and to be a prominent brand in Asia, you really gotta know your skin care. If your mom is in need for a new skincare regimen, consider this as an option. It contains travel-sizes of Extra-Gentle Cleansing Foam, Hydro-Nourishing Softener, and Day Moisturizer Protection SPF 15.

Clinique Happy for You Seticon ($49.50) is a favorite of mine to give to friends and family. Happy is such a familiar and go-to scent, so it makes a great gift for the one you aren’t sure what to get. They’ve put together a Mother’s Day Set, which includes Happy perfume spray, moisturizing body cream, and a dual-ended rollerball perfume with Bamboo Pink Long Last Glosswear on the other end. Love rollerballs for on the go perfumes!

Philosophy Amazing Grace Seticon ($59.50) is another can’t-go-wrong-with scent. I just find this to be such a nice, feminine scent that’s not too cloying. This set contains an 8oz. buffing wash, 8oz. firming body emulsion, and 2 oz. spray fragrance.

Clinique High Shine to Go Seticon ($25.00) contains two shades of Long Last Glosswear in Air Kiss and Mystic; and two shades of Full Potential Lips Plump & Shine in Peach Plump and Peony Pop. I love the long-wearing capabilities of the Long Last Glosswear, and I can appreciate the high shine of the Full Potential glosses, too. But really, I think I’m just eyeing the cute Clinique bamboo-printed bag!

MAC Prep + Prime Line Fillericon ($19.50) will help turn back the hands of time. Well, at least maybe fifteen minutes! New from MAC is this line filler that will help mask fine lines and minimize the appearance of some of those signs of aging.

Or if your Mom loves to cook, maybe splurge on some Le Creuset cookware. I mean, I’d love some, but I don’t think Mellan has enough pennies saved up for that quite yet. ;)
