From signature scents to multi-purpose products, here are the Mother’s Day that are equal parts indulgent and practical.
Mother’s Day is on Sunday, and if you haven’t gotten the number one woman in your life a present yet, we rounded up the best gift every mom wants but wouldn’t treat themselves to. These aren’t just your usual flowers and photo frame, we’re talking about pampering skincare, luxe fragrances and household essentials that will brighten their day from the moment they wake up on Mother’s Day and each waking moment after.
The Classic and Elegant Mom
Jo Malone New Blossoms Collection
If you discovered Jo Malone London because of your mom or even sneaked into her room to steal a few spritzes from her own bottle, why not buy another scent that she can pair it with? Think about it, since you already know her signature scent, another bottle that can go with it is a guaranteed gift she’ll love. Jo Malone London is also an expert when it comes to scent pairing which means all their fragrances are specifically created to be layered to create something personal.
With their New Blossoms Collection, you can gift mom a scent that’s perfect for the summer weather. Choose from Sea Daffodil, a solar floral fragrance with notes of ylang-ylang, warm vanilla and sandalwood, or Bitter Mandarin, a citrus fragrance deepened with warm amber notes and precious orris. If you’re looking to really treat mom, why not buy both? It’s the closest thing you can get to gifting her a tropical vacation without having to take her out of the house.
The New Blossoms Collection is available online at jomalone.com and in Jo Malone London stores in Rustan’s Makati, Powerplant Mall, Greenbelt 5 and SM Aura.
The Carefree Mom
Aesop Beacon Gift Kit
If there’s anyone who could use a little extra pampering, it’s the mom in your life. Moms are always taking care of others without ever asking for anything in return. So this Mother’s day, surprise her with a self-care kit that she can use every night to wind down after a hard day’s work and don’t worry AESOP has already created one for you. The Beacon Gift Kit includes a reviving facial mist, a beloved hand balm, a refreshing body cleanser and a citrus-based body balm that all boasts of a relaxing scent.
Not only does it comes in their signature minimalist packaging, which moms would gladly display on in the bathroom, but it also comes in a reusable amenity case that’s wrapped in a sleeve bearing an image by artist Eleanor Millard. The calming artwork depicts scenes and landscapes of rural Victoria, Australia.
The Beacon gift kit for Mother’s Day, is now available at Aesop Greenbelt, Aesop Rockwell, and online at aesopskincare.ph.
The Healthy Beach Mom
Made Mindful Virgin Coconut Oil
If your mom loves to live her life to the fullest and her idea of a good time is an escape to the beach or cooking up a storm in the kitchen, Made Mindful’s Virgin Coconut Oil is something she’ll be obsessed with. This powerhouse oil can be used as a cleansing oil for the face, a moisturizing product for the hair, a tanning agent for the body, and lastly, you can cook all kinds of food with it. It has several health benefits, including antimicrobial and antioxidant properties that improved skin and oral health.
Made Mindful was created by actress and businesswoman, Bianca King. The brand is FDA-approved and uses the highest quality of Virgin Coconut Oil that is directly sourced from Filipino farmers in Quezon and Bicol Region. It is also unprocessed and is free of preservatives and additives. I’ve given a bottle to my mom and my older sister who ended up stocking bottles on their own bottles after and it has also become my personal beach bag staple.
The On-The-Go Mom
Philips Home Appliances
No mom would ever say no to a practical gift, especially moms who need the extra hand in making daily tasks easier and more enjoyable. As the world continues to open up, help mom maintain your home in its best shape with Philips home appliances.
Opt for the Airfryer XL, so she won’t have to have a hard time preparing meals after work or the Cordless Stick Vacuum to make cleaning less of a struggle, or even the Handheld Steamer 3000 series so she can easily look her best even when she’s in rush. But what would make all of these gifts even better is to use the gadgets yourself and help your mom out with chores every day.
Philips Domestic Appliances are available on Lazada.
