Mother's Day Gift Ideas!

What do you get for the woman that has everything? From experience, it seems beauty products never get old! For a few years my brother's and I would get my mother a new fragrance or bath and body products every year. And every year she would still glee with excitement because my mom is Mama Makeup Junkie! If you've been fretting over what to get the woman that let you try on her lipstick when you were four, that scolded you when you picked on your little brother, that read your diary during high school, that paid your rent when you were broke, and that is the best grandmother to your kid(s), fret no more because you're bound to find some wonderful gifts for the woman that has everything!

How utterly gorgeous is this bag accessory from YSL ($56 USD)? It's like a jewelry piece and cosmetics, two of my favourite things, in one! This bag accessory can customize a bag or belt includes a solid perfume and fuchsia pearly lip gloss. Perfect for that glamorous mom-on-the-go!

You can give your mother breakfast in bed without lifting a finger thanks to Philosophy's yummy 3 in-1 Shampoo, Shower Gel, and Bubble Bath trio ($30 USD) in Cafe Au Lait, Fresh Cream, and Belgian Waffles. Mmm... I am a huge fan of any of Philosophy's shower gels because they come in such mouth-watering scents! Your mom will love the idea of having breakfast in bed anytime she'd like!

Some great ideas here! I love the breakfast in bed trio from philosophy. When we were kids it was always breakfast in bed so I think this would be really fitting ;)
