Gift Guide: Mother's Day 2013


Now that we already know where we're getting our Mother's Day cards from, let's start thinking about the presents. If your mom is anything like you,  she needs to be surrounded by all things glamorous. So why not treat her extra special this year? Whenever I think about what to get my mom for Mother's Day, I focus on products that will make her feel relaxed and/or like a Queen. My mom does so much for me, so Mother's Day is the perfect time to pamper her. Check out my favorite gift ideas for this special occasion.


Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream ($27; www.kiehls.com): The megawatt skincare company is a favorite amongst tastemakers. And if it's good enough for fashion's finest, your mom is bound to adore the brand, too. I'm personally obsessed with this face cream: it always leaves my skin super hydrated. If you want to go the extra mile, make your mom a mini Kiehl's gift bag-- I suggest the Creme de Corps Light-Weight Body Lotion and the company's iconic lip balm.
Jo Malone Wild Fig & Cassis Candle ($65; www.jomalone.com): If your mom already has a set beauty regime, a luxe candle is the ultimate no-fuss gift. Not only does Jo Malone have most mothers' stamps of approval, fig and cassis are an unstoppable duo. Feeling extra giving? Throw Jo Malone's Wild Fig & Cassis cologne into the mix.

ChloĆ© Eau de Parfum ($90; Sephora): As one of my mom and my favorite scents, this fragrance is a perfect way to embrace the sunny months ahead.  If the adorable packaging isn't enough of a gift, the delicate blend of honey, amber and pink peony (in addition to a slew of other scents) is simply scrumptious.

Ugg Alloway Slipper ($90; Ugg): If you want your mom to spend Mother's Day relaxing, she has to dress the part. A stylish pair of slippers is perfect for the occasion. The brand's signature shearling combined with a sleek silhouette? Who wouldn't want these? I'm personally obsessed with the black option-- they look super rich. 

Carolee Flex Bracelet ($75; Bloomingdales): Okay, this isn't necessarily a "pamper-ready present"; however, doesn't everyone feel at ease when they see pretty jewels? The dainty silhouette is juxtaposed with a string of glitz.  J'adore.
