Mother’s Day. I love taking the day to honor and celebrate my mom, the woman who has invested so much of her life into mine; the woman who has sacrificed and given above and beyond. I love to spend the whole day pampering and loving on her. Over the years I’ve given her a variety of gifts – candles, flowers, gift certificates and chocolates. I wanted to do something a little bit different this year. I thought it would be fun to give her some beauty products. Because what woman doesn’t love beauty products?! I found everything I needed at Family Dollar and for fantastic prices.
The idea for beauty products started when I spotted this adorable black and white striped makeup bag. I am obsessed with anything black and white striped right now!
There is nothing better than a good lip gloss. I found a hot pink shade that will look great with my mom’s complexion! I also picked up a clear gloss that she can put over her favorite lipstick.
I included one of my favorite mascaras – Maybelline’s Great Lash in Very Black. It’s a great mascara that doesn’t clump and it makes your lashes look amazing!
I had initially added a single bottle of pink nail polish, but then I found this little treasure near the checkout – an Ombré Nail Kit! There was a kit for pinks, purples and also blues. I picked up the blue kit since blue is my mom’s favorite color. I thought this would make such a fun and summery look for her toes!
And here’s what the gift looked like all put together.
In addition to giving this gift I thought it would be fun to include a homemade gift certificate saying that I would give my mom a pedicure using the new Ombré Nail Kit.
What are some of the ways you love to celebrate the mothers in your life?
Let’s take a day to honor and pamper them!
Happy Mother’s Day!
