With the first week of May coming to an end, Mother’s Day is officially just around the corner! Now that I am a mother, I have a much easier time coming up with gifts for this annual occasion so I have gathered some ideas, promo codes and decided to share them with all of you!
Here are my top five gift ideas for Mother’s Day 2018:
1. Bend Anti-Aging Formula and Marine Collagen
I say it all the time; this is my holy grail product line. Whenever I stop taking it (for whatever reason) my skin pays the price…literally. My eczema flares up, my skin doesn’t glow and my make up doesn’t apply as flawlessly.
Maybe your mom has already fallen in love with Bend, or maybe you want to introduce her to it. This is the perfect opportunity to treat her toward feeling like the best version of herself!
A lot of people ask me exactly what it does, so here is the lowdown:
The anti-aging formula – increase skin hydration, increase skin firmness and promote elasticity, reduce skin redness and roughness, treats eczema and clinically tested for UV protection. People even experience 83% UV protection in just 8 weeks of use!
Marine collagen + cofactors – collagen production starts declining in our 20’s so this helps decrease fine lines and wrinkles, build collagen formation, helps to maintain healthy skin, hair and nails, helps in wound healing, and is a source in antioxidant to help protect against free-radicals.

2. Create a custom photo book
Either you have some priceless old photos or recent ones from the last family gathering; either way, nothing beats a sentimental book that lasts a lifetime. This modern-day photo album makes for the perfect coffee table book and she’ll be so happy to cherish these memories forever! My three favourite photo-creating platforms are Blurb, Apple’s iPhoto and Chatbooks for the following reasons:
Blurb is great for it’s infinite customization and frequent coupon codes. You can save 40% right now by using the code JUST4U4TY (valid until May 6, 2018).
Chatbooks is for the busy bee looking to create a book in the fastest time possible. It was created by women, for women (fast-paced living moms) who simply want to “favourite” photos on their smartphone to have automatically transferred to a photobook template. This makes it even easier for you to impress mom this Mother’s day!
iPhoto has very user-friendly templates (on any Mac) and is a quicker option than Blurb. However, they tend to cost me more since you can’t apply any discount codes.
3. Customized jewelry
Meaningful custom jewelry are what mom dreams are made of! The brand new Jillian Harris x Melanie Auld ‘Adorned’ Collaboration is one of a kind, where you first pick a chain, then select charms of choice, which can be initials or symbols of loved ones! Click here to create your very own for mom!
Another classic and beautiful option would be the Stella & Dot engravables collection, which is actually 20% off for Mother’s Day. These have been around for years now and have more options than ever! Available in necklaces, bracelets or rings and in silver, gold, or rose gold – Check out their latest here!
4. The Silke Hair Wrap
Sure we’ve all heard of silk pillowcases and eye masks to reduce wrinkles, but have you heard of the Silke head wrap? This was created to protect styled hair when you lay your head down each night. My mom actually owns one and swears by it, since she wakes up with her hair in its perfect form. This London brand lists the many benefits of their handmade 100% silk hair wrap here. You can even purchase it locally from The Parlour Boutique Salon and avoid paying duty. Here’s to preserving our styled hair!!
5. A gift card to her favourite salon/spa
Whether your mom is a top customer at her fave spa or doesn’t remember her last time at the salon, I’m sure she’ll love it. Now I’m daydreaming of a massage, mani, pedi or blowout. Has anyone ever complained about too much pampering? I sure hope not!
There you have it! I hope my suggestions are helpful to you!
Let me know what you end up getting that special woman in your life; I’d love to know 🙂
