Mother's Day is such a fun and important day. It's the day we get to honor and shower the woman who gave us life. I have always been one who loves to do fun surprises for my mom and the mother's in my life. I spent some time trying to find fun and unique gift ideas that can be put in a basket if you are on a budget or one really special splurge. Mother's Day comes every year and it's fun to change it up with different unique gifts that you normally wouldn't get for mom. Here are my 4 picks at the moment!
A.JAFFE CUSTOM MAP PENDANT NECKLACE
I fell in love with this line recently when I decided to try the line out for myself before I went to buy one for my mom. This is possibly the coolest necklace idea I have ever found. I talked about it a bit today in my previous post. A.JAFFE will map on a pendant an exact location you send them with a little diamond. I decided to map the spot where we conceived our son in South Africa. I can't wait to do this for my mom now that I know how incredible this necklace turned out. The back of your necklace will be a special personalized message of your choice! Just a little FYI the chain and the back side of the map are not included so you will need to make sure to request that. The top of the pendant is large enough to put around your favorite chain if you are on a budget or you can purchase a chain from them! A.JAFFE is offering a buy one gift one for Mother's Day! When you buy a sterling silver round pendant with the diamond, you will receive a matching one free using my gift code MD18MAP. This offer is only available until May 24,2017 so don't miss out! Keep in mind you will have to add both pendants to your shopping cart and then apply the promo code to receive the discount. Multiple offers do not apply!
SABON BUTTER HAND CREAM
My mom has held my hand through it all. The ups, the downs, the good, the bad. Her hands bathed my brother, sister, and myself for years and years and have been through the ringer! I'm sure all those dishes she washed and baths she drew left her hands dry and in need of a lot of attention. I thought how sweet to gift her a beautiful hand butter that I have found has made my hands so soft and smell so lovely. I think adding a sweet personal note to mom explaining how important her hands have always been all these years, how soft her touch has been, and how comforted she has made me feel holding my hand through it all is so important. I want her hands to be beautiful and happy because that's how she has made me feel all these years. This Sabon Butter Hand Cream has hints of vanilla and almond that are subtle but so yummy and the packaging is so pretty. I love that one of the main ingredient is Shea Butter because it's so healing and calming on the skin. Shea Butter reduces inflammation too! The Sabon Butter Hand Cream is an affordable wonderful gift to give to a hard working mom who's hands could use some love and is the perfect size for travel.
VICHY MINERAL 89
What mom doesn't want a hydrating drench of love all over her face? I know my mom does. I'm a skin freak and I'm always telling my mom about new must have serums and the Vichy Mineral 89 is a must! First off, it's super duper affordable which is fabulous if you're putting together a sweet little gift basket for mom and are on a budget! This product is a new generation of moisturizer, combining 15 Mineral Rich Water with Hyaluronic Acid to fortify skin and make it more resistant to visible aging caused by environmental damage!!! Vichy Mineral 89 delivers a boost of hydration for a vibrant and healthy glow. The skin feels more toned and plumped and super hydrated after using just 2 drops! Because VICHY is so awesome, they are offering a 20% discount AND free shipping when you use the code BABBLE. This offer is valid from May 1st, 2017 - June 30th, 2017 so be sure you don't miss out on this offer!
23ANDME ANCESTRY KIT
If you really want to change it up and give your mom a cool, unique, fun gift, the 23andMe Ancestry Kit is it! Find out where your DNA comes from around the world. Did you know your DNA can tell you where your ancestors lived more than 500 years ago? I did not know that until I discovered this kit! With this kit your mom will learn about her ancestral origins and see how each of her biological parents contributed to her ancestry composition. I think it's pretty cool that 23AndMe Ancestry Kit will show you how many generations ago you had an ancestor that was descended from a single population or ethnicity. They look at 32 populations worldwide and show a breakdown by region, including Eastern Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, and more! How cool is that? This gift may seem a bit out of the box, but I love stepping out of the box, especially if it means digging deep into family heritage! 23AndMe wants to help moms celebrate Mother's Day by offering $20 off through May 14th, 2017. No discount code required!
I hope these fun and unique Mother's Day gift ideas will help you put together a sweet little basket or design a meaningful necklace that I know your mom will shed a tear or two when she opens.
