Treat Mom to a cool surprise this Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Have you thought of  what to give your Mom? It’s already 2017, so here are gift ideas that go beyond the conventional perfume set and ‘I Heart Mom’ mug:

1. Eileen Fisher flowy top and Ellen Degeneres ballet flats Show your appreciation for her no-frills approach to life with this boat-neck flowy top from Eileen Fisher. Made of soft-stretch fabric, it is suitable for doing laidback activities in style. Combine this with a pair of white pants and ballet flats from Ellen Degeneres and she will be turning heads at the park or the organic farmers’ market she goes to every Sunday.

2. TopShop pendant bracelet and Tory Burch watch Complete the goddess look with this delicate rose-gold pendant bracelet from TopShop. Comprised of a single faceted glass stone held by a twisted chain, this adjustable bracelet is a model of understatement. So is the watch from Tory Burch. The Swiss-made timepiece is encased in gold-plated stainless steel and attached to Italian leather straps.

3. Street Level tote and wristlet This bag may look to some as plain, but this tote from Street Level is far from boring. First, it will surprise your mom to know how soft the faux leather it is made of. Then another surprise awaits her when she flips it inside out: it changes into another color. The one in sage, for instance, has an ivory reverse side. The tote also comes with a wristlet.

4. Bobbi Brown After Hours Eye, Cheek, and Lip Kit Take it from the Queen of French Fashion herself, Coco Chanel: “Nature gives you the face you have at twenty. Life shapes the face you have at thirty. But at fifty you get the face you deserve.”  A hard-earned face deserves beauty products that highlight, rather than hide, its natural beauty. Gift your mom with makeup that will allow her to create subtle looks, such as those in Bobbi Brown’s After Hours Eye, Cheek, and Lip Kit. The kit includes a highlighting powder, a lipstick, a mascara, an eyeliner, and an eyeliner brush. The waterproof eyeliner lasts for 12 hours and is sweat- and humidity-resistant.

5. Kate Somerville Kate’s Clinic Skin Changers For her skincare, get her products that contain natural ingredients, such as Kate’s Clinic Skin Changers from Kate Somerville. The fruit enzymes in the cleanser and exfoliator will thoroughly clean her skin without over-drying it. The four-piece ensemble also comes with a moisturizer that delays the appearance of wrinkles and a booster that fills the skin with oxygen.


Kate Somerville | Kate’s Clinic Skin Changers – $75.00

6. JeNu Plus Ultrasonic Infuser Enhance the natural with high-tech, such as with the JeNu Plus Ultrasonic Infuser. When women apply skincare products, only a small amount of them is absorbed by the skin. This gadget pushes skincare products into the skin to achieve the best results. Your mom will love the infuser not only for what it can do but for how it looks as well: the manufacturer plated it in 24-carat gold, as if to say, “Go ahead, make yourself beautiful. You deserve it.”


JeNu | Ultrasonic Infuser – $279.00
International shipping weight – 1 kg

7. Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Your mom probably has owned countless hair dryers since her younger days, but this one from Dyson is nothing like the contraption that looks more like a carpentry tool than a beauty gadget. Lightweight, quiet, and slick, the Supersonic Hair Dryer is the hair dryer of the iPhone age. Have I mentioned its surface doesn’t get hot?


Dyson | Limited Edition Supersonic Hair Dryer – $399.00

8. Michael Kors x Fujifilm Instax Camera While most photos these days come in digital form, nothing beats the pleasure of holding a contact print in your hands. Create new memories – literally – with your mom this Mother’s Day with Michael Kors x Fujifilm Instax Camera. Shoot a scene and watch it develop into a print in 90 seconds. It comes with an Instax Mini Film Pak, which is good for 10 prints.

9. Heather and Myles Geyman Smartphone Vase Is your mom the forgetful type? Does she turn things upside down in the house to find her phone? Help her organize with this vase from Heather and Myles Geyman. Besides holding a posy, this vase also has a slot in which she can keep her phone. Be creative and the slot could also hold a photo or a notepad.

10. Personal Creations Seasoned with Love Lazy Susan So we’ve warned you against I Heart You Mom mugs and its ilk. But this personalized artsy-craftsy gift we’re recommending is something you’ve never seen in a gift shop with touchy-feely items: a Lazy Susan. Who personalizes that rotating table-on-top-of-another table, anyway? Personal Creations does, engraving on a 15-inch-diameter Lazy Susan the message, “Mom’s Kitchen is Seasoned with Love”.  You can have “Mom’s” changed into your mom’s own name and choose between natural and burgundy for the finish.


Personal Creations | Seasoned With Love Lazy Susan – $49.99

While gifts aren’t the only way to express our love to our moms, a well-thought-out present goes a long way. Sometimes, gifts say what we can’t in words: a badly needed encouragement, a long-overdue confession, a much-deserved forgiveness.  Mother’s Day happens only once a year; make it a day she’ll look forward to.
