Searching for a Mother’s Day gift that she wouldn’t buy for herself? How about a gift set with fragrances, body and skin care products or a set of candles?
Plus, often times, when buying a set, you can get more for your money. I hit LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, L’Occitane and Yankee Candle to check out some ideas.
At LUSH (Level 2), you’ll find several Mother’s Day themed gift sets, packed with bath and body goodies that offer that much needed MTO — Mommy Time Out!
This is the Happiness Gift. It’s filled with products that have citrus fruits and oils used in aromatherapy to boost the spirits. She’ll enjoy a mini peach massage bar, the Happy Hippy shower gel, a Karma Kream for just that — good Karma, Whoosh shower jelly, a Lemony Flutter cuticle cream and Bohemian soap.
There’s also a Mother’s Day in Paradise Gift set. This relaxation kit comes with eight products, including the Madame Butterfly reusable bubble bar — for multiple rose scented bubble baths. The Dream Cream “transforms suffering bodies into states of peace with our calming blend of oat milk, lavender and chamomile to care for irritations, reduce redness, and banish blotches.” There is also a rose scented full body conditioner and more… I featured this gift set on WBAL-TV this past weekend.
Or, give her something Lovely! That’s the name of this floral themed gift set of four soothing products, including two kinds of bubble bath products, a salt scrub and the body conditioner.
Next stop for gift sets is L’Occitane, also on Level 2. The latest fragrance collection features four scents: the romantic Jasmin & Bergamot, the exotic Magnolia & Mûre, the sweet and spicy Vanille & Narcisse, and the fresh, gender neutral Thé Vert & Bigarade (green tea & bitter orange). Each set features an eau de toilette, body milk and shower gel. You can achieve a longer lasting fragrance by layering a gel, body milk and finishing with an eau de toilette. Stop into the store anytime to try out any of the four scents.
How about the gift of Ultimate Youth? This is the Divine Ultimate Gift of Youth Set. The set comes with three anti-aging products from the Divine line: the Immortelle Divine Cream, the Precious Cleansing Foam and Divine Eyes, an eye cream. If purchased individually, you would pay the same price for just the face and eye cream as of the entire set.
Have you ever smelled Verbena? It has a refreshing lemon scent. The Verbena themed set comes with a shower gel, body milk, eau de toilette, perfumed sachet and shea soap.
Yankee Candle (Level 4) is another destination for memorable gift sets. Mom will get to experience multiple fragrances such as a beach themed trio of a Sun & Sand beach scented candle, the fruity and floral Golden Sand and the melon and vanilla scented Pink Sand.
You can also put together your own set. All large candles are buy 1, get 1 half off for a limited time.
Some of the candles feature a built-in picture frame. It would be touching to give mom or grandma a set including a picture frame candle for each child or grandchild.
