Do you find it difficult to shop for Mom for Mother's Day? Do you have a Mom who insists that she has everything that she could ever want and that all she needs is a card or to hear from you on Mother's Day? DO NOT fall into this kind of trap!
While she may actually kind-of-sort-of mean this, you can blow her away with a small gift that shows that you put a little thought towards the woman who has sacrificed the world for you. Band together with your siblings (if you have them!) and put together a gift bag that includes a couple of the suggestions below. And don't forget a card with a minimum of two hand-written sentences! If you are a spouse of a hard working mama, show her your appreciation by putting together a gift basket "from the kids". She will remember this kind of gesture forever.
The following are 3 gift ideas for the mom who (says she) has everything:
1) 23andMe: I have ALWAYS wanted to try a DNA ancestry kit, and now I have! 23andMe could not have made ancestry discovery any easier. First, you register your kit online, which is where all of your results will populate. Next, you spit! All of the sample collection materials are provided in the kit. It was so easy to do. Lastly, you mail in your kit, using the provided prepaid packaging, and then you receive your results several days later.
After your saliva is analyzed, you receive a percentage breakdown by region, including eastern Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, and more. As the 23andMe database continues to grow, your breakdown will continue to be updated.
This DNA test will tell you all sorts of detailed information, such as when different ancestries were introduced into your DNA, and also how many generations ago it was that you had an ancestor that was a descendant of a single population or ethnicity. We are one big melting pot, it's difficult to believe that there was a time that we all originated from a single population.
Now through 5/14/2017, receive $20 off of your 23andMe kit. No coupon code needed, follow this link and celebrate Mom's Genes this year! #WeLoveMomGenes
2) Vichy - Mineral 89 Moisturizer: This lightweight skin booster, with mineral-rich water and hyaluronic acid, is everything that a busy mom's skin needs. You would never guess that I am surviving off of less than 6 hours of sleep per night! This moisturizer goes on cool and smooth and leaves my skin feeling plump and rejuvenated.
After just a few days of use, I notice that my skin is softer and more vibrant. Vichy Mineral 89 can be used solely as a moisturizer, but I use it at the start of my morning skin care routine underneath my face sunscreen (since I drive into the sun to and from work!). After cleansing, I apply two drops of Vichy to my skin, and it provides the perfect base.
From now until 6/30/2017, receive 20% off of your order along with FREE SHIPPING, using the promo code Babble. Click here to get your order placed before Mother's Day!
3) Sabon Butter Hand Cream: Sabon offers some of the most luxurious bath & shower and lotion products. I have the Butter Hand Cream in Almond, and I cannot get over the velvety smooth feel of this lotion.
The Butter Hand Cream is enhanced with shea butter for intense and healing hydration. Did you know that shea butter is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and can help soothe many skin conditions? And the sweet almond vanilla fragrance makes me a happier person. It just does!
This lotion, packaged in a metal squeeze container (as only the most decadent hand creams are), will be an everyday go-to for the mom in your life. Follow this link to see the six Butter Hand Cream Fragrances by Sabon.
