Often, the people in need of indulging the most are those who get to indulge the least: mothers. Let’s face it, many moms are lucky if they find enough time to eat and sleep during the day, let alone pamper themselves. That’s why, for this Mother’s Day, I’ve thought of 5 gift ideas, all under $60, that are guaranteed to spoil mommy dearest silly. And to all the mothers reading this, if one of these ideas catches your eye, don’t hesitate to treat yourself! This is your day and you deserve it!
1.) A Spa Day – Head out to your local spa and get Mom a gift certificate for a full day of pampering!
2.) Alex + Ani Bangles – They’re cute, adjustable, and eco-friendly. How can you, or Mom, resist? (Available at Très Chic Styling) http://tcstyling.com/en
3.) Loveshop Scarves – You can never have too many scarves! They’re made of soft silk and are the perfect color to spruce up any outfit. (Available at Très Chic Styling) http://tcstyling.com/en
4.) Diptyque Candle Red Special Edition – Ok, it does slightly go over our $60 budget (it is 68$), but with 10% of the proceeds going towards the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa, it’s well worth it!
5.) And the ultimate gift: Spending TIME with your Mom! I’m in a love affair with all things British since the recent royal wedding, so how about taking part in a typically British tradition and having teatime with your Mumsie for Mother’s Day? Most hotels serve tea in the afternoon and for about 30$ per person, you can enjoy your tea with some scones and mini sandwiches.
Here are some of my favorite places to enjoy a spot o’tea:
Happy Mother’s Day!
