The countdown is on, folks: Mother’s Day is less than a month away. And we’re telling you now so you can set a calendar reminder and not have a repeat of last year—you know, when the date “slipped your mind” and you ended up making a mad-dash to CVS for a Hallmark card and a tropical candle (sorry, Ma). So let’s allow 2017 to be a stress-free, gift-giving opportunity to thank your mom for birthing you and putting up with your shit for a few decades, and give her some kick-ass beauty products that she’d actually want.
Steering clear of boring, blah, and cliché Mother’s Day gifts (*cough* that bath bomb that’s been sitting on her vanity for, like, five years *cough*), we’ve rounded up 10 top-notch beauty products that your mom will seriously love, like a crisp, jasmine and lily-infused fragrance from Kai, and a brightening, vitamin-C packed face serum from Sunday Riley. Seriously, these gifts are so good that your mom will forget all about last year’s mishap…and maybe even that time you got arrested in high school, ideally. So read on for our 10 gift picks and try to resist the urge to keep them all for yourself.
