It is hard to believe we are a month into spring and Easter has already been and gone. You know what that means? Mother’s Day is ar ound the corner and we all need to start thinking about the women who raised us. Before I became a Mother myself, Mother’s Day didn’t have as much meaning to me. Yes I found a gift, wrapped it and gave it. But I never remember truly putting thought into it that actually spoke to my mother and her likes. Now that I am a mother I know when I receive a gift on Mother’s Day I want it to have thought behind it. Not just the first sweater that was seen or the vacuum I need replaced but something that is truly me and has a personal touch added to it.
What if I can give you a couple ideas that take your Mothers Day Gift to the next? I have a couple add-ons that make a thoughtful gift, extraordinary.
Yardley London Lily of the Valley
My mother has always loved the Lily of the Valley flowers. I remember as a child, her cutting bouquets of them in the spring and bringing them into the house. They are so fragrant with a very sweet scent. I now follow my mothers steps and when my Lily of the Valley flowers are in full bloom I too bring them in the house.
Piggybacking on these memories from my childhood and my mother’s absolute love for Lily of the Valley flowers, gifting something as beautiful as Yardley London Lily of the Valley set which includes a Luxury Soap trio, Talc and Eau de Toilette would bring us back to beautiful memories of those fragrant spring days.
Next level: Paired with this beautiful timeless gift set I will write a handwritten story that shares my memories as a child. It will make us both feel loved and share a smile. It would be absolutely complete if I could find or cut a beautiful bouquet of Lily of the Valleys to add to her gift.
Yardley London products are available at Shoppers Drug Mart and other major retailers. Learn more here: YardleyLondon.com
Fuse Gelnamel Kit
Perhaps you or your mother are not as sentimental as I am, but your mother likes posh nails and is the DIY type? Recently I have came across the Fuse Gelnamel Kit which is an at-home gel polish kit. It is a fabulous idea and works great when you feel like pampering yourself well you stream your favorite movie.
I have never had the time to sit in the nail studio to get my nails done. It happens occasionally but I do enjoy winding down in front of the TV with a hot tea and pamper myself. That is exactly what I did with the Fuse Gelnamel Kit. It is an extremely affordable, the Starter kit is $39.99, extra colour is $15.59 and extra cleanser and wipe refill kit are valued at $8.99. Overtime I am saving money and I still have a posh looking manicure that speaks salon quality that I did in my PJ’s.
Next level: I would gift this set to mom with a coupon that offers your nail services and a chance to bond over doing each others nails. Perhaps you can order in dinner and stream a mother, daughter movie like “Because I said so” or “The Help”.
