Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Nothing is more important on Mother’s Day than making the woman that gave you life feel like she is the most special person on the planet. I am fine with a handmade card and a delicious breakfast, but giving unique items that you put a lot of thought into is priceless.
For me, Mother’s Day is all about family and where you come from. A fun, and interesting, way to celebrate that is by gifting your mother a 23andMe Ancestry kit. It is a saliva collection kit that dives into what your DNA says about you. Technology is amazing and it is kinda crazy that you can spit it into a tube, mail it off, and a couple weeks later you will know where your ancestors lived more than 500 years ago.
I think the thing that makes this so awesome is that it is essentially a DNA test you can take out of the comfort of your own home. You can get $20 off now through May 14 if you click through the link above; no special code necessary.
Nothing is more comforting to be wrapped up in your mother’s arms. I can remember the feeling of NEEDING to hold my mom’s hand when we were out and about when I was younger. Her hands were always soft, comfortable, and strong. A sweet way to remind her of that is mentioning those hand-holding needs in a card and giving her a Sabon Butter Hand Cream so that she can preserve those hands.
Skincare is something that I firmly believe EVERYONE should be serious about, so giving skincare as a gift is something that I really enjoy. Most adult women have a skincare routine firmly in place so I like to give something that can assist in their regular routine. The Vichy Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Gel Face Moisturizer is the PERFECT addition to any daily ritual. It fortifies skin and makes it more resistant to visible aging caused by pollution, stress to skin, and fatigue. You can save 20% through June 30th by using the code BABBLE!
For the finishing touches to your gift basket, add flowers or plants. I personally love succulents. If the mom in your life loves flowers, get some for her to replant in her garden. They are super inexpensive and they will last not only the entire season, but in some cases they come back year after year.
