It’s Tuesday, 5 days before Mother’s Day, you have a super busy week of work, and you still haven’t found a gift for your mother…I am in the same situation, except that my mother lives on another continent and I won’t see her before next month, which gives me more time 😜. Anyway, when you must shop fast and efficient, keep in mind that all women love the following gifts: fragrances (when well chosen), makeup, accessories. Fashion is great too, but hey, we just said that we were in a rush and buying fashion items require a little research and anticipation.
I’ve listed for you 5 gifts that you can shop (or e-shop) easily to spoil your mother right on time.
A feminine and iconic fragrance from Cartier
I recently discovered two fragrances of the French maison Cartier: Baiser Volé and Baiser Fou.Two creations by Mathilde Laurent, Cartier in-house Perfumer, exploring the authentic scents of single flowers. The Baiser Vole fragrance is an ultra-feminine lily accord, fresh, floral and powdery, while the Baiser Fou fragrance is a sensual purple orchid.
Cat Eye Sunglasses from Velvet Eyewear
Velvet Eyewear designs trendy, sophisticated and relatively affordable and high quality sunglasses, manufactured in Italy and in other fine factories offering outstanding quality, craftsmanship, and materials. I love their cat eyes models, especially these two that I am going to wear all summer! For Mother’s Day, I would recommend the model Joie, a slightly edgy cat eye style.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy is an extensive lip color range with 130 shades and 6 different finishes…don’t tell me that there’s not one for your mother! In doubt, choose a nude/sheer, discreet shade.
Flowers from The Bouquet Bar
Last week, The Bouquet Bar sent me a beautiful box for Mother’s Day, including gorgeous flowers, chocolates and a candle. And yes, it might sound cliché, but I was super happy to receive flowers (and I would like to add that it’s been almost a week now, and the roses still looks fresh and amazing). Check out their Mother’s Day collection and create your own
Aerin Rose Eau de Cologne Collection
If your mother prefers light, fresh, summery fragrances, make her discover the Rose Eau de Cologne from Aerin, a new collection of fragrances based off of their signature flower – a rose. The collection includes three different rose scents for every day, every mood and any reason – featuring bamboo-rose, garden-rose and linen-rose scents. My favorite is Linen rose, it smells like the day at the beach with a twist of coconut!
