What do you want for Mother’s Day this year? To get together with your girlfriends you haven’t seen in weeks, drink some wine and go dancing? (Just me?) But since most of us are home for the foreseeable future, that whole bubble bath/breakfast in bed/comfy PJs and scented candles thing sounds like a close second.
And in that vein, here are some things on my wish list this Mother’s Day–hopefully it helps you find something perfect for you, your mom or another deserving mom. Because we all deserve it. Especially this year.
1. Silk Pillowcase – I started using this for two reasons: my skin and my hair. And it works. “An anti-aging, antisleep crease, anti-bedhead pillowcase that’s like an eight-hour beauty treatment every night,” this is one product that lives up to the promises. It feels ridiculously soft and luxurious, and would make a great gift for Mother’s Day!
2. Silk Sleep Mask – Made from 100% non-absorbent silk, this mask will keep your skincare products on your face where they belong and won’t leave creases on your face. Use it for naps or all night long–I love the darkness it provides without sacrificing comfort.
3. Nordstrom Moonlight Short PJs (also in a long version) – I LOVE my long Nordstrom PJs and want to get a pair of the short ones for warmer weather. A reader suggested getting both pairs so you can mix and match, and I thought that idea was genius. They’re so soft and comfy and wash really well. Trust me, you’ll love these!
4. Pave Disc Stud Earrings – These sparkly earrings are perfect for everyday looks or special occasions, and at under $30, they’d make a great gift. (Also in yellow gold.)
5. Pave Disc Necklace – Such a pretty and delicate necklace. It’s 16 inches long (with a 2″ extender) and also comes in yellow or rose gold. (Reviewers love this one.)
6. The White Company Scented Candle – Six different scents to choose from (including Verveine–where are my fellow Vampire Diaries fans!?) to make your house smell amazing. Display one on the diffuser plate (#11) to make it look even prettier.
7. UGG Shearling Slides – I LOVE my UGG slippers–they feel so luxurious when I slip them on. These slides are perfect for warmer weather, and I like the grippy rubber tread that won’t slip easily.
8. Leon & George Plant – Bring some nature inside with an easy-to-care-for plant that purifies the air inside. Verishop has a ton of different plants, pots and holders to choose from here (all with free 2-day shipping & returns), and I love the aesthetic.
9. Wine Purifier & Decanter – The wine decanter is beautiful, while the purifier gets rid of the sulfites (artificial preservatives) that are responsible for headaches and hangovers…um, sign me up! (A carafe set is also available.)
10. Vietri Hibiscus Vase – Made in Italy from mouth-blown glass, this is a gorgeous vase that would look good with or without flowers in it. (And dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning!)
11. The White Company Diffuser Plate – Protect surfaces or add some pretty metallic accents to candles and diffusers with this shiny plate. I love the way the candle (#6) looks on this…and if you’ve ever spilled candle wax you’ll understand how helpful this plate can be.
12. Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Mind Bath & Shower Oil – You had me at de-stress. Clean and cruelty-free, Aromatherapy Associates was “founded on the premise that essential oils can have outstanding revitalizing effects on both your skin and body.” (There are a ton of options to choose from, including this Miniature Bath Oil Collection of 10 oils you can mix and match or use alone.)
13. Milo Classic Dutch Oven – Also in matte black or shiny emerald green, this 5.5 quart dutch oven is both functional and gorgeous. Perfect for slow-cooked meals or long simmering sessions, and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
14. Bathtub Caddy Tray – I need this. This is (hopefully) what I’ll be doing this Mother’s Day–Zack takes the kids and I get in the tub. With a wine, tablet and phone holder, candle slot, and detachable trays for anything you could need in the bath, this is the ultimate bath accessory. (Also in grey, black, natural or dark wood.) Just add bubbles.
