While we try to honor our moms all 365 days of the year, every May, we do a little something extra for the women who bought us our first lip glosses, soothed our teenage breakouts, and helped us choose the most gentle cleanser for our sensitive skin. Now it’s time for us to return the favor.
Take a peek at what these Birchbox daughters picked out this Mother’s Day, and pick up a few gift ideas along the way.
Dana Halpern and her mom
"My mom is a huge proponent of skincare and beauty! Thanks to her, I know that it’s just as important to wash and moisturize twice a day as it is to throw on some extra eyeliner and eye shadow before I go out for the night. She LOVES the Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab set (she even had me purchase it for some of her friends!), so I know that it would be a perfect gift for her for Mother’s Day.”
Leah Colman and her mom
"She would love the CURLS Cashmere curls! She has very curly hair that can tend to get unruly in the southern heat and humidity, and this would help tame them.”
Charlie Cooper and her mom
Alexandra Marolda and her mom
“She loves the boscia Soothing Cleansing Cream, theBalm cosmetics Stainiac, and Antica Farmacista Home Ambiance Fragrance - Prosecco. I couldn’t pick just one!”
Nidhi Bhat’s mom and dad
"My mom would absolutely love the L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. It has a really light scent and moisturizes even the driest of hands.”
Melanie Block and her mom, Denise
“My mom is a HUGE Birchbox fan! She can’t stop talking about the Stella Cadente Miss Me Eau de Parfume that she got in her box a few months ago.”
Loren D. and her mom
"She’s currently working full-time and is in the process of completing her MBA, so she’s always on the go. I’m so proud of her, and I think this travel-size Oscar de la Renta live in love Rollerball will make her feel pretty at all times, despite her superbusy schedule!”
Madelyne Dolandolan and her mom
"My mom’s been looking up and down for a powdered dry shampoo. Her hair tends to get oily fast, and she needs an alternative to washing it every day. I’m going to get her a bottle of Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Dry Shampoo since it has an easy-to-apply nozzle.”
Candice Chan and her mom
"Even though I already sent my mom a limited edition home box to satisfy her serious green thumb, I’m going to sneak in an extra gift of this Folle de Joie hand cream. I know that she’d love the light citrus-y, floral scent.”
If you’re still looking for something special for your mother, don’t fret – your mom’s next favorite product will arrive just in time if you order by Thursday!
