Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re still scrambling for gift ideas, why not take a cue from some of beauty’s top tastemakers? We asked five beauty bloggers to share the one extravagance they would get their mums for Mother’s Day (or the best splurge-worthy product they’ve already given). Lucky for us, they were happy to divulge. From a kick-arse blow-dryer to an indulgent spa getaway, keep scrolling to see their picks!
The blogger: Nikki DeRoest of Hello to Beauty
The extravagant pick: “You can't go wrong with giving your mom anything from the Sunday Riley skin care line. I gave my mom the Juno Oil ($90) because I think it's a product every woman needs on her vanity. Radiance, hydration, and antiaging… Yes, please! I've watched it change the overall health of all of my clients’ skin immediately, and it's a little slice of luxury. It's the best gift!”
The blogger: Amber Fillerup Clark of Barefoot Blonde
The extravagant pick: “For Mother's Day, I'd gift my mom with some nice skin care products, like La Mer’s Crème de La Mer Moisturizing Cream ($160) or Kate Somerville’s Gentle Daily Wash ($95). She taught me the importance of taking care of your skin but never likes to spend money on herself. I like to gift people with those things that they normally wouldn't splurge on themselves.”
The blogger: Keiko Lynn of Keiko Lynn
The extravagant pick: “My mom never asks for or treats herself to anything, so when she commented on how much she liked my blow-dryer (which has been discontinued), I went out and bought her the Buttercup Dryer ($195) from Drybar. Now she won't travel without it!”
The blogger: Tina Craig of Snob Essentials
The extravagant pick: “My mother loves to spa and shop. I would say those are her two favorite ‘sports’ (and mine as well!). An extravagant gift I would love to give her is a weekend at The Alpina spa resort in Gstaad, followed by a week of power shopping in Paris. Okay, I'll be honest—this gift would also be greatly enjoyed by myself!”
